One of the remaining NES all-stars - Bill “Mad Dog” Rizer for Smash (and maybe Lance Bean as an echo/alt).

It's incredible they aren't in the game yet. But considering it's Konami, no surprise there.
We did get Simon and Richter, along with a lot of neat Castlevania content, and not to mention the return of Snake, which leads me to believe it wouldn’t really be that complex for Nintendo to get rights to the series, if they really wanted it. However I’m kind of anticipating a spirit event.

I support this! I recently got the Contra Anniversary Collection after knowing about Contra for so long and I loved it. I imagine the main gimmick with Bill Rizer will be as he is damaging the enemy, power ups will appear and Bill can grab it. He can get a variety of the classic upgrades like spread shot, missiles, flamethrower, etc. Such sick moveset potential. I want him in Smash now.

I'm also supporting this after having completed the original Contra (arcade) to Super C (NES; now on Contra III: The Alien Wars) in Contra Anniversary Collection thus far! Also, Wonder Smash made a Classic Mode for our soldiers in another thread, which I will write here (remember to credit him in OP).

Thanks! I didn't know somebody else posted my idea here.

Also, I figured I'd post ideas for spirits from the Contra series too.

There's a lot to choose from. I hoping I could add Deadeye Joe but I couldn't find a good picture of his whole body.

You know, you should use “spoiler” when posting an enormous amount of images or else navigating here turns into a pain in the arse.

How did I miss this thread!? Really wish to see the Contra guys as they are third party NES classics alongside Mega Man, Simon and the Lee brothers!

I feel they should go as they did with the Koopalings and how I wish they had went with the Belmonts, skins! Bill is the main one, Lance is the second skin and the rest can be different Contra characters throughout the games! Like Sheena, Brad and Ranzou.

If you do go with the "Koopa Kid" method, at least one of them has be to be Probotector.

Brad Fang would be nice too, but I can understand the difficulty of making one of your alts a werewolf with guns for arms.

C'mon dude. Bill and Lance are BARELY characters anyone even knows the names of. The others are complete nobodies.

This REALLY doesn't justify a Koopaling treatment. They can reference other characters with color schemes and Spirits.
