In terms of franchises with the most iconic overall cast, after Mario and Sonic I would say Street Fighter has the most iconic cast. I'm honestly expecting to see Chun-Li in Fighter's Pass 2 since it was rumored she was planned for base game but got cut due to time constraints and them not finding a satisfying enough moveset in time. If true, I think Chun-Li is very likely as DLC.
You mentioned "Overall Cast" so are you talking about a cast as a whole, and not just individual characters? Because Pacman, Pikachu, Link (Legend of Zelda), Kirby, and Megaman all trump the entire street fighter cast.

Yes I'm talking about casts as a whole. Street Fighter has one of the most iconic recongnizable casts in all of gaming alongside Mario and Sonic.

Out of all the non-Nintendo videogame characters, the only non-Sonic characters who are more known than Megaman are probably Pacman, Ms. Pacman, and the ghosts (Pacman).

I would say they're just about as iconic as Mega Man. Pretty much all the Street Fighter 2 cast alone is as iconic as Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li.
Not upset nor complaining, but Megaman trumps Ryu. The Megaman franchise as a whole has had at least one installment on every Nintendo Console since the late 80s. Also, there have been plentiful of official Megaman cartoons, comics, and more, some of which are currently obscure at the moment. There have also been a series of Megaman RPGS which nobody knows anymore. Also, dozens of fanmade Megaman media has been responsible for making the titular Megaman character more iconic than Ryu.

But Street Fighter has outsold Mega Man in sells though and has been on more consoles. Though regardless, I would say Mega Man himself is just as iconic as the Street Fighter cast.

Don't want to be rude, but saying "Ryu is more iconic than Megaman just because Ryu is more popular" is like saying "Frogs are cold-blooded, therefore frogs are reptiles." which isn't true.

Take a look at this fanart.



From left to right, Megaman, Bomberman, Mario, Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, Rayman, Pacman, and Banjo.

If you replaced Megaman with Ryu in this artwork, Ryu would look blatantly out of place. Megaman is a cuddly character who can fit when he is grouped with Mario, Sonic, and Pacman.

To get back on topic, I would certainly prefer another Sonic character over Chun-Li.

Well I'm just saying. Street Fighter is the most well known fighting game series on the planet so more gamers around the world would recognize Ryu than the number of Nintendo fans that would recognize Mega Man.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

To everyone in this thread, does anyone remember SammyClassicSonicFan? He was a fan of both Modern and Classic Sonic. Back in mid 2013, Sammy made a video titled "Stop hating on Sonic", which helped him cumulate his infamy back then.

Later Sammy posted a rant to convince people to support his concept of a 3D environment Classic Sonic game.
The "Your actions have consequences scene" soon became a meme during the mid 2010s. But it was a flavor of the month. Basically, Sammy became infamous for just one video, and a following video, which triggered thousands of people to post memes about Sammy.

I support. I simply relish the prospect of having one of Sonic's closest allies being a playable character! Also, if you are interested, here is my moveset idea (keep in mind that the design is with the idea that Tails is a very controllable character that has the option of being slow or fast in action. The keywords are 'safety' and 'controllability,' with a tradeoff of power.):

Jab (AA): Tails performs two roundhouse kicks. The second hit can be delayed, and the first hit's endlag can be cancelled into any input, making it a decent pressure, escape and combo tool.

Dash attack : Tails extends both arms outward in a shoving motion as he moves. This has no K.O. potential, but comes out quickly, does not interfere with his movement, and can be cancelled into a roll.

Ftilt: A roundhouse kick similar to Mario's, but with more knockback and higher endlag.

Utilt: Tails does a backflipping kick that can be cancelled into a jump.

Dtilt: Tails sweeps his tails in front of him in a similar fashion to Fox, though not as quickly.

Usmash: Miles hovers above the ground and performs a scissor kick above him, somewhat like Wolf, but with higher endlag and the option to cancel into a jump if you do so before his tails cease spinning.

Fsmash: After backflipping and hovering for the charge animation, Tails flies forward with both legs fully extended in front of him. This move has high startup, but if you time a jump when his tails start spinning, it can be cancelled.

Damash: Tails hovers above the ground and throws an explosive down. The ensuing explosion causes high knockback, and the attack can be cancelled into a jump if timed properly, in which case, Tails does not throw the bomb, and now has a throwing item at his disposal that behaves just as a bob-omb. The window for cancelling this attack is often too small to use outside of a premeditated intent though.

Fthrow: Miles grabs the opponent by the collar and flies forward with them. He then tosses them away.

Uthrow: Tails flies upward with the opponent and tosses them upward.

Bthrow: Tails, holding on to the opponent, orbits around them and kicks them away.

Dthrow: Tails flies above the opponent and stomps them in the face many times before slamming them into the ground with an axe kick.

Fair: Tails kicks forward in front of him twice.

Uair: Tails stalls his descent, curls into a ball, and swings his body upward, pivoting about his current position.

Dair: Tails plummets to the ground with both legs pointing straight down, the fall can be cancelled into up B described shortly.

Bair: Tails stalls his descent using his tails. He then spins around with both legs fully extended, the move can be cancelled into up B or a double jump.

Nair: Miles curls into a ball; his tails strike outward about him in a similar fashion to Ivysaurs Bair in Brawl.

Neutral B: Tails charges up a powerful laser, during which time he can move while preparing. The move can be cancelled into a roll until the latter stages of charging.

Down B: This is not really a move. Instead, inputting this during any attack enables you to do the following while holding B: Control stick- forward, Tails speeds up the attack animation, eliminating all but a fraction of the original damage; Control stick back- Tails slows down the animation, making it slightly more powerful and extending the window for cancelling; Control stick up - Tails drastically angles the attack upward; Control stick down - Tails drastically angles the attack downward. The technique requires quick action and has a high learning curve, but once mastered, gives Prower players virtually limitless flexibility.

Side B: After winding up for a moment, Tails throws out fake ring bombs in the same way he does in Sonic Heroes. They detonate shortly after release, stunning opponents, and giving Tails a tool for edgeguarding and setups.

Up B: Tails propels himself upward while spinning his tails. Afterward, the player gets six to eight seconds of midair control time, giving him an excellent, though somewhat slow recovery. He descends slowly when no directional input is made, but he can fast fall with a down input on the stick. He can cancel into a ledge grab, but cannot attack or dodge out of the move.

Final smash: Sorry... you must come up with this one. I am out of ideas!
