It's your roster prediction, you don't need to change anything based on my opinion or any other members. Granted this is an old thread, so we already know what the roster consists of.

You make a LOT of generalized assumptions with your use of 'everyone' that I'm here to say.. ain't true. Opinions are fine, but you spoke with a little too much authority on some things. EVERYONE hated the WW artstyle.. LOL. After it sat for a few years it literally became one of the fan favorite art styles. Some people just say stuff when they type I suppose. Pichu.. a weak clone? Do you know ANYTHING about Pichu outside of Smash..? Christ. Who cares if MG Survive was hated, Snake in Smash is based off of an entirely different game in the series and nobody said a character couldn't be in Smash if they had a bad game(s).. if that were the case even Mario would be out.

You also sailed completely past a few characters, not mentioning if you'd cut or include them. If you want to cut 95% of the roster, fine, I disagree.. but fine. Just give decent reasons please, it seems bias fuels every opinion on this matter so heavily having a genuine discussion about it often becomes impossible due to wildly outlandish additions such as this.
I'm terribly sorry about this list i did

The Echoes are added because there is some time and resources to make them, just like the Echoes in the main smash games. Saves time that way.

Also :ultdoc: is an alternate costume for Mario.

To continue with my roster, I have decided there would be a preorder bonus and a new DLC pack

The Preorder bonus is given to Adeleine

As for the DLC pack, consists of :ultgreninja::ultryu::ultken: Chun Li :ultpalutena: and :ultvillager: (Random Pack)

Also a mini pack for Echoes (:ultrichter::ultdarkpit: and Black Shadow)

FWI, :ultsheik: and :ultzss: are transformations again.

:ultsonic::ultmegaman::ultpacman::ultsimon::ultryu:

So there, trimmed the roster down to 40 characters if we are only looking at Nintendo owned franchises, 45 if third parties are included and discounting DLC.

Ok, let's see... I'm not really looking at any character limit. Just so long as it isn't as insane as Ultimate's 80. (not that i have a problem with that or anything...I just feel a reboot should be somewhat simpler)
VETERANS:
:ultmario: now primarily based on Mario Odyssey, with a heavy focus on Cappy in his moveset
:ultdk: now uses a few more moves from Donkey Kong 64
:ultlink: uses the Champion's powers for his special moves
:ultsamus:
:ultdarksamus: no longer an echo. Actually uses her powers from Metroid Prime.
:ultyoshi:
:ultkirby:
:ultfox:
:ultpikachu:
:ultluigi: moves almost exclusively revolve around the Poultergust and its attachments
:ultness: now uses PSI techniques he ACTUALLY could learn in EarthBound
:ultfalcon:
:ultjigglypuff: only still here because original 12
:ultpeach: based on Super Princess Peach. Wields Perry and has the vibes as her specials.
:ultdaisy: wears her soccer outfit and fights using sports equipment
:ultbowser:
:ultzelda:
:ultmarth:
:ultganondorf: less Captain Falcon, more OoT boss techniques
:ultmewtwo:
:ultgnw: i thought about cutting him, but i felt that he was too important to Nintendo's history. Keep him just like in Ultimate (but maybe with the old fair)
:ultmetaknight:
:ultpit:
:ultwario: now based on the Wario Land series. The overalls is the default and the biker suit is the alt.
:ultsonic:
:ultcharizard: as much as i love Pokemon Trainer, i feel like we would revert to solo Charizard again if this happened.
:ultdiddy: same edits as DK
:ultlucas: same edits as Ness
:ultkingdedede:
:ultmegaman:
:ultrobin:
:ultbowserjr: now plays like everybody thought he would before Smash 4: on foot, using the Magic Paintbrush. Shadow Mario is an alt.
:ultinkling:
:ultsimon:
NEWCOMERS:
I don't feel like we would get too many of these. But I can see these happening...
Waluigi (i feel like a reboot would be an excellent way to finally bring him in. I could see him being very tennis-centric)

Ribbon Girl (an ARMS character is a very good choice, and she seems like the best representative to me)

Miitopia Miis (instead of the classes we had previously, lets instead have all the classes from Miitopia (Warrior, Mage, Cleric, Thief, Pop Star, Chef, Cat, Imp, Scientist, Princess, Tank, and Flower). The Miis themselves and their costumes could be customized but the movesets would not.)

there could be more but i don't have any other ideas that wouldn't just be my personal wishlist

Here is my ideal roster for a reboot

:ultmario::ultluigi::ultpeach::ultbowser::ultdk::ultdiddy::ultlink::ultzelda::ultganondorf::ultsamus::ultridley::ultyoshi::ultkirby::ultkingdedede::ultfox::ultfalco::ultpikachu::ultjigglypuff::ultmewtwo::ultfalcon::ultness::ultmarth::ultlucina::ultpit::ultpalutena::ultwario::ultolimar::ultvillager::ultlittlemac::ultinkling:
My reasoning for my choice was to include franchises that are important and iconic to nintendo’s history and then pick characters that are the most important to that franchise.

These are my predictions for a potential reboot (as absurd as that sounds); it is not a wish list. I am assuming Sakurai is not guaranteed to return as the director. Also, I decided to exclude third parties (outside of the two placeholders in column A) because predicting them is really hard tbh. .

[Column A] Most likely to be in: :ultmario::ultluigi::ultpeach::ultdaisy::ultbowser::ultyoshi::ultwario:/:ultlink::ultzelda::ultganondorf::ulttoonlink:/:ultpikachu::ultmewtwo::ultcharizard::ultlucario::ultjigglypuff:/:ultdk::ultdiddy:/:ultkirby::ultkingdedede::ultmetaknight:/:ultfox::ultfalco:/:ultsamus::ultfalcon::ultness:/:ultmarth::ultrobinf::ultike:/:ultinkling::ultvillager::ultisabelle::ultshulk::ultolimar::ultmiifighters:/ 2 third party [37 total]
[Column B] A gigantic pile of maybe: :ultpit::ultdarkpit::ultpalutena::ultlucina::ultkrool::ultduckhunt::ultdoc::ultgnw::ultlittlemac::ultpokemontrainer::ultridley::ultzss::ultwolf::ultsheik::ultroy:/:ultdarksamus::ultchrom::ultincineroar::ultgreninja::ultlucas::ultbowserjr::ultrosalina::ultcorrin:[23 total]
Probably not?: :ultpiranha::ultpichu::ultwiifittrainer::ultrob::ultgunner::ultswordfighter::ultyounglink::ulticeclimbers: [8 total]

I have no clue lol: Smash Ultimate Challenger Pack Characters + Third Parties

  • I think the roster would be all of column A, five or so fighters from column B and maybe five newcomers to start.
  • My most likely out of column B would be: :ultrosalina::ultbowserjr::ultroy::ultchrom::ultlucina::ultkrool::ultridley::ultdoc::ultdarksamus::ultlucas:
  • :ultpit: (and more so:ultpalutena:) is very much dependent on whether Sakurai decides to come back for development
  • At minimum, the base roster would be 47 fighters, close to Smash 4's pre-DLC roster.
  • As you can see, clones are given a decent amount of priority, as they are much easier to develop. Which ones I think will be cloned, I'm not really sure (Daisy I feel is extremely likely).
  • Newcomer ideas: Rex/Pyra/Mythra; Elma; Dixie Kong; Pokemon from Sword/Shield or a future generation; Waluigi; Third Parties like Master Chief, Sora, another Platinum character, etc; Spring Man (if the series isn't abandoned by then); FE character; BotW champion (?)

Oh, and for DLC of my "NOBODY IS HERE!" reboot idea.

Goomba is free, followed by Kazuma Kiryū, Conker, Haxorus, Enzo and finally, Chrono.

These are my predictions for a potential reboot

I can't see Wii Fit Trainer getting cut, honestly. And Ice Climbers have lots of fans and are pretty iconic to the series.

Wii Fit Trainer would be cut due to Wii being dead and unlikely for it on Switch

I definitely could if the roster is 30-40 characters, at least on release. Consider the other characters on my list (especially column A); I don't really think ICs and Wii Fit would take precedence over them (especially since many of them are easy clone/semi-clone characters).

But on top of her having a great moveset, she represents the Wii, which is a huge part of Nintendo's history. It'd be like cutting the spacies just because they don't get their own games anymore. Pretty sure that even in a decade, people will recognize Wii Fit Trainer before they recognize Falco. R.O.B. and Mr. Game & Watch have some important history, but aren't nearly as recognizable as Wii Fit Trainer, who also has some Nintendo history worth remembering.

Super Smash Legends

Main Characters (Heroes vs Villains)
Super Mario - Mario, Bowser
Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong, King K. Rool
The Legend of Zelda - Link, Ganondorf
Metroid - Samus, Dark Samus
Yoshi - Yoshi, Kamek
Kirby - Kirby, King Dedede
Star Fox - Fox, Wolf
Pokémon - Pikachu, Giovanni
Earthbound - Ninten, Giegue
F-Zero - Captain Falcon, Black Shadow
Fire Emblem - Marth, Ashnard
Kid Icarus - Pit, Medusa
Wario Land - Wario, Captain Syrup
Pikmin - Olimar, Louie
Punch-Out!! - Little Mac, King Hippo
Splatoon - Inkling, Octarian
Super Smash Bros. - Sandbag, Galleom
That's thirty-four characters. I'd say there'd be certain hidden characters that go against the theme, though.
Was just thinking back to this old idea, and thought it could use an update.
This time, the characters are definite heroes or definite villains, for the most part. Mario is a hero, but Mario & Cappy together are an even more heroic duo. Bowser's evil, but he has a warm side that makes you care about him more than other villains in the series.

Main Characters (Heroes and Villains)
Super Mario - Mario & Cappy, King Wart
Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong Jr., Petey Piranha
The Legend of Zelda - Link, Ganon
Metroid - Samus, Ridley
Yoshi - Yoshi, Kamek
Kirby - Kirby, Magalor
Star Fox - Fox, Wolf
Pokémon - Red, Giovanni
Earthbound - Ninten, Giegue
F-Zero - Captain Falcon, Black Shadow
Fire Emblem - Lyn, Ashnard
Kid Icarus - Pit, Hades
Wario Land - Wario, Captain Syrup
Pikmin - Olimar, Louie
Punch-Out!! - Little Mac, King Hippo
Splatoon - Off the Hook, DJ Octavio
(Thirty-two characters initially.)

Unlockable Characters
Super Mario - Geno, Luigi, Petey Piranha
Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong, Cranky Kong
The Legend of Zelda - Skull Kid, Midna
Kirby - King Dedede, Meta Knight
Star Fox - Falco, Krystal
Pokémon - Cynthia
Earthbound - Porky
Kid Icarus - Viridi
Punch-Out!! - Glass Joe
Splatoon - Inkling
WarioWare - Mona, Ashley
Animal Crossing - Isabelle, Tom Nook
Others - Wii Fit Trainer, Duck Hunt, Mii (Tomodachi Life), R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch, Chorus Kids, Mach Rider, Takamaru
Third Party - Simon, Alucard, Mega Man, Proto-Man, Sonic, Dr. Eggman, Crash, Pac-Man, Bayonetta, Travis Touchdown
(Thirty-eight characters to unlock, making a full roster of seventy, one more than what Ultimate has, pre-DLC.)

44 reboot Roster.png


Got it down to 44 with Mii Fighters and Pokemon Trainer counting as three characters each.
If you have your own game and it's semi successful you got prioritised.
Luigi, Captain Toad, Wario, Yoshi and Tingle rep their own series.
If your franchise is super successful you get more than one character.
Some older franchises got dropped to replace with some different discontinued series. No reason for it, just felt like rotating some series.

Reboot DLC.png


Fighter Pack 1: Top five franchise fighters. K. Rool and Meta Knight return via DLC after missing out on base, Paper Mario is his own series, Blaziken fills in the non-gen 1 quota, Impa is both spinoff Zelda and a replacement for Sheik.
Fighter Pack 2: Middleweight franchise fighters. Included characters who have been wanted for a long time in the Smash community...and Captain Falcon who missed out on the base
Fighter Pack 3: Third Party DLC pack. No one new here, but trimming the fat on the third party bananza to what I'd consider the biggest five names.

Imagine a Smash Bros. game without Captain Falcon in the base roster.

It's really easy when you consider how being a Smash memetic character is the only thing keeping Falcon in the public mind in the first place.
Surprised Fox is there, by that logic. Captain Falcon's iconic enough that even new players to the series would wonder where he is.

Starfox is still a top 20 selling franchise for Nintendo and still gets games...even if they're of questionable quality. Nintendo clearly don't want Starfox to go into hibernation and are throwing concepts and games onto the franchise to keep it relevant to modern day Nintendo.

F-Zero meanwhile has been dead for 15 years surviving only on Smash, a few elements in the latest Mario Kart, a single stage in Nintendo Land for the Wii U and memes about Falcon Punches.
Falcon doesn't really need to be in a modern day reboot aside from the OG12 nostalgia. However if that's the reason, I'm not sure why you're not equally annoyed at me cutting Ness and the entire Mother series.

Besides, Falcon gets added back in my roster's DLC, I'm just prioritising other dead series that didn't have the luck Falcon had in the original Smash such as Golden Sun and Chibi Robo. Judging by this reaction however his DLC announcement would be as big a deal as Mewtwo's was.

A few of the characters have changed in my reboot Smash Bros

Mario uses his hammer for his down special. He also has his fire alt back, along with Dr.Mario and Mario from Mario and Luigi as alternate costumes.

Donkey Kong, Mewtwo, Diddy Kong, King Dedede and King K.Rool can talk (as with Dixie Kong).

Bowser curls into a ball and rams opponents for his up special. His shield is replaced with him hiding in his shell. Bowser also talks and has Dry Bowser and Wedding Bowser as alternate costumes.

Peach has her wedding outfit and Shadow Queen as alternate costumes.

I'll throw this out.

:ultmario:(:ultdoc:):ultluigi::ultpeach:(:ultdaisy:):ultbowser::ultyoshi:

Not including any newcomers or characters added from hereon that I believe would make sense.
If anyone wants my reasoning behind any of the selections I'll divulge it.

That's 54

Regardless, I'm curious as to what reboots a lot of you play, regarding fighting games.
I cannot recall any that kept such a large number of characters.
Mortal Kombat Armageddon comes to my mind the most, in part due to the nature of "Everyone is Here."
It went from 60 or so characters... down to about 20.

Tekken Tag Team Tournament 2 (which has almost every past character) to Tekken 7 went from fifty-nine to thirty-six, with ten of Tekken 7's characters being new, meaning only twenty-six of the game's characters were veterans. What if Smash did something similar? Seventy-five in Ultimate, to say, forty in the next? Eleven to thirteen of the characters being newcomers?

I fully think that what you said is possible (and is very different than the scenario in the post I originally quoted).
Even in my list in this thread, I followed the rule you have above, roughly, just with smaller numbers (such as in the example given).

Also- as someone who loved Gon (and the odd Dr B), you chose an example that makes me a bit salty, haha.

Doctor Bosconovitch is Tag Team Tournament 2, but Gon isn't, what did you mean by the last part? If you're talking about the characters that aren't in 7, it's weird that you mention Gon, when Gon's been gone for ages, hahaha.
