I would like Goku and other anime characters like Luffy, Sasuke, and Cell. But it would open up pandora's box and all people would be wanting would be anime, comic book, movie, and cartoon characters. I wouldn't be liking that at all one bit if the demand and conversation was just centered around non video game characters.*Sigh*. I know it’ll probably never happen, and I know I’ll catch a lot of hate, but Goku.
I just think that characters like Goku could be exceptions due to his gaming history. While he is first and foremost an anime character, he has more video game history than half of smash. I know it’s stupid, but that’s how I see it.I would like Goku and other anime characters like Luffy, Sasuke, and Cell.

Conker was the first one that came to mind for sure. I'm glad I wasn't the only one trying to think of iconic characters from the 90's. Granted I'm biased growing up with those games.I’d love to see a 3rd party from a great franchise that was really Nintendo-inspired. The N64/PS1 age was full of great platformers that we’re clearly inspired by the video game foundations set forth by Nintendo in the 90’s. It only makes sense to honor these characters in Smash. Plus, they’d probably be the most hype character announcement since Sonic in Brawl.
A few that come to mind are:
- Crash Bandicoot
- Banjo & Kazoo
Both were actually in the original NES Punchout btw#10. A New Punch-Out Character- Either King Hippo Or Mr. Sandman (Both Are From Punch-Out On The Nintendo Wii)
