Chance: 0% He's a literal stick figure with no emphasis in the games itself. There was a fun gif that someone made, but it was entirely fanmade.
Laboman Gif
Want: 0% He's not a good representation of Labo, and Labo, in general, is too unproven to warrant a representative.

Nominations:
No More Stages x5
I'd really appreciate some help for this concept. Basically, the number of stages in the game is 103. This does not include DLC, or stages in a Single Player mode.

Labo Man
Chance: 0% -
He's a fan character... guess it's time to start suggesting our cringy Sonic OCs! I guess if you want to be technical the stickman is an actual Labo thing (not that Labo has any chance of appearing in this game or being utilized at all here). Either way, the only reason this has gained any traction was from that stupid GIF that a fan made. Unlike Mr. Game & Watch, which is a Sakurai-created persona and amalgamation of the Game & Watch titles, the form of Labo man you all expect will never be the final form of Labo representation in Smash (if by some weird chance it ever gets represented by anything more than a stage or assist trophy in the first place, which I doubt it will.) And no, R.O.B.'s inclusion as a peripheral has no effect on this as literally everything R.O.B. can do is completely made up for Smash anyway (I don't even know why he's in to be honest).
Want: 0% - Labo is another gimmick-based novelty, and one for very young kids at that. As with Minecraft, Mario Maker, and Mario Paint, the things fans can create with these tools are truly astounding, but as someone with little creative or constructive talent, I literally could not give a Raticate's ass about Nintendo Labo.

Prediction: Ryu Hayabusa
Chance: 20.21%
Want: 30.36%

Chance-1%. He's far too recent to get in, especially in a very fanservice game. Only reason he's not a 0 is because I think very few characters are impossible

haha finally labo man my votes for months

chance 5%
way to recent and not a popular choice. Ultimate is just fan demanded charcters and he is nowhere near being consedered for this game.

want 95%
I got king k rool in so I'm happy for him beyond belive for him. I just want labo man for sakuria to really go all out with him like rob and wii fit trainer. Sadly he is just to late to the game and I doubt that he will make DLC would be fun though

Labo Man

Chance: 1%
As of right now, there's no real reason to believe we will get something to represent Labo, since we already have ROB (which is way more iconic) and it's too new to be considered as part of the final roster, but it's not impossible.

Want: 18%
It could be interesting and funny when I get used to it, but a reveal would probably make me kind of mad since there are other much more deserving characters.

Labo man

Chance - 0% - I think we would get the Labo bot, seeing as it's an actual character. The G&W serries lacked a distinct character, so one had to be made. One does exist for this one, so I don't see why they would have to get creative.

Want - 20% - I have always wanted a Mech fighter in Smash Bros. Labo bot is the closest will ever get, so getting someone else would esentally destroy his chances.


Prediction

Ryu Hayabusa - 13.32% - Not great, but not unlikely.

Labo Man

Chance: 1%

The timing is terrible, especially for a more unusual character and super new IP. I don't even think it has much of a chance for DLC, to be honest.

Want: 20%

Meh. Not extremely opposed to Labo representation but it still doesn't interest me. This isn't even what I'd add as the character if I had to put something in, either.

Labo Man

Seems like the Labo Robot would be easier to include, but either way, the game is a bit niche. I thought the Labo stuff looked like it could be fun, but probably a bit gimmicky, like the amount of effort/cost/storage space to fun might not be worth it. Also I'm not clear what the intention is here... would the Joy-Con be part of the fighter or would that be left out?

I'm not really sure about the moveset potential and the like, but I'll assume there's enough there. But cardboard cut-out from a series that only released during the development and hasn't been a big hit and is kind of a strange choice in general... doesn't seem too likely.

Labo Man chance: 2%
Labo Man want: 30%
Doesn't seem that appealing to me. There are better WTF characters too.

Labo Man

Chance: 5%
Want: 0%

The only representation of Nintendo Labo that I see possible in smash is a trophy. And maybe an item. Beyond that I find it very unlikely and unnecessary. It would be a waste of slot. But who knows if Wii fit trainer is in wouldn't rule anything out.

Labo Man

Chance: 10%
It must really suck to be a Switch-debuting franchise, huh? Too late to get a solid slot into Smash Ultimate's roster, but too early to dream of getting into the Smash that comes after.

I have little doubt, though, that Sakurai would've jumped onto a character like this, but he'd have to make much more liberal use of Labo's games than what Labo Man himself does.

Want: 25%
While the novelty is sound, I'm a tad bit afraid that they'd feel compelled to make use of Labo's features and incorporate custom cardboard creations for his appearance. Because if they don't, then it just be "another" character with an otherwise not-too-exciting moveset, so it's a bit of an oddity in terms of wanting him in. I can support representing Labo, but getting a moveset for them might be more trouble than it's worth.

Ryu Hayabusa: 3.3%

Double zeroes for me. Not a fan of the idea. It just seems like a novelty and I wasn't really a fan of the somewhat generic moveset gif that's been floating around.

Labo Man chances: 2%
Three words: way too recent. There has been some speculation about a representative for Arms and Xenoblade 2, but this one goes over the top when it comes to recency. Considering the track record of Ultimate newcomers, I don't expect characters to be added primarily for their "relevance" outside of a new Pokémon. Prime candidate for DLC though.

Labo man want: 20%
It could be a funny idea I admit, but there are many other characters who feel like fan favorites and as a result need to get in the base game rather than something released this year.

The other Ryu prediction: 12.89%

Nominating:

New item: Beast Ball x1
Playable newcomer: Ken x4

Labo Man

Chance and Want:



Regarding Chance:

He is too new to be considered. Labo didn't release until two years after the roster was decided. I'm not sure when Nintendo first came up with Labo, but something tells me this was decided on more recently and not in 2014/2015.

Regarding Want:

For a surprise joke character, I can see the appeal, but I feel like now is not the time, not to mention that I think there are better choices.

Not very likely with the theme of fanservice and the fact the game was developed before the Switch came out.

Labo Man

Chance: 0%
Considering that it came way too late before the roster was finalized, it's highly unlikely for someone like Labo Man to make it in the base roster. He might have a shot at being DLC, however.

Want: 25%
I like the concept of Labo and as much as I like it to be represented in the game, I don't think he has moveset potential that can go with Labo Man. I wouldn't mind having him in the game, though.

Labo Man
Chance: 0% - Appeared far too late for SSB5. As far as characters based loosely off of console add-ons go, the so called Labo Man doesn’t have nearly the same historical relevance as ROB or Duck Hunt.
Want: 0% - If we’re getting any character made out of recyclable materials, it’s going to be Paper Mario.

Chance: 0%

With the exception of Richter, Ultimate's character choices have been aimed at fan-service. Laboman is far too niche and with the project plan being proposed in 2015 he's also way too new.
Want: 30%
I love R.O.B. so I wouldn't be against another strange hardware based character. That said I won't lose sleep if he doesn't make it.

Let's be realistic, the roster is already decided and I seriously doubt Nintendo looked at Labo and saw a fighter potential within it when it was in production. Laboman only got attention for being a really neat gif someone made. Unless he turns out to be REALLY late-game DLC... it's not happening

Want: 100%
That being said, I. LOVE. Joke characters. Labo Man would definitely scratch that itch for a good WTF character.

Labo Rep
Chance: 1%

Sakurai has done and is fond of some rather out there picks for characters, so I don't think it's entirely impossible, though it is immensely unlikely and lacks moveset potential currently.

Want: 0%
There are many, MANY other characters I would consider first before a Labo rep, and other obscure characters I think have more moveset potential. I would want to see Diskun before I consider wanting Labo.

Chance: 0%

If we were talking chances for any other smash game I'd think he'd have a much better chance, but given how the roster has gone so far I really don't see him getting in.

Want: 50

I love troll characters, and if I was building my own personal roster he'd be a contender to make it in one of the last spots after I got my personal most wanted characters in

Labo Man:

Chance: 0%

When the DLC finished for Sm4sh, the character roster before dlc was finalized for Ultimate. At least I think that's correct. Since the NX wasn't even revealed at that time, nevermind labo, it will probably barely get a footnote nevermind a character slot.

Want: 10%

Not really. It'd be funny, but with the limited roster space there are far more I'd rather see.

He's too new to be included in Smash Ultimate and even then, he's too late anyway, since Ultimate's base roster was already finalized way before this guy exist. He might make it as DLC, though.

Want: 15%
I wouldn't mind having this guy in Smash, but there are other characters that needs to be in the base roster. Then again, if they were able to have R.O.B. in this game, then they might be able to do the same with Labo Man.

Isn't he a made up character?
However a Nintendo Labo character like the Giant Robot or that cute little furball in the Labo House? I can see that having a 1% chance. And a 5% chance as DLC.
Want: 1%
While I think it would be neat to have a Labo fighter I think the Giant Robot or that furry creature would be a much better choice. But truth be told, Labo would be best represented as a stage. If we were rating a Labo stage I'd give this a 70% Want.

If memory serves me right, a later version of the Smash 4 Rate Their Chances thread had multiple users working on it; several users handled jobs for different aspects of the game; nominations, calculations, statistics, etc. Sometimes one of them would even change the day over to the next character in line when the thread owner was busy and unavailable.

I think this thread could benefit heavily from additional management much like it's predecessor did. Just my suggestion.

If there are any other nominees from the list that have also been confirmed/disconfirmed, please point them out.

I’m adding seven more nominees to the RTC schedule.
VOTING FOR THEM NOW IS OBSOLETE


The schedule will go as follows:
August 20th - Day 131 - Wonder Red (The Wonderful 101)
August 21st - Day 132 - Concept: Female Announcer
August 22nd - Day 133 - Kamek (Yoshi)
August 23rd - Day 134 - Saber (Fate/Stay Night)
August 24th - Day 135 - Viridi (Kid Icarus)
August 25th - Day 136 - Nihilego (Pokemon)
August 26th - Day 137 - Concept Canon Bowser/DK/Diddy voices*
August 27th - Day 138 - Katrielle Layton (Professor Layton)
August 28th - Day 139 - Concept: Style Savvy Character

August 29th - Day 140 - Scorpion (Mortal Combat)

*I have no idea what to do with this one. DK and Diddy clearly retained their animal voices, and even K. Rool seems to have the animal grunts. There’s still Bowser but I think he’s retained the animal grunts as well. Anyone have a video of Bowser if there’s any? It could be made into a double rate day. What does everyone think about this one?

Because of this long period, starting with Ryu Hayabusa, everyone gets x10 nominations. The bonus period will last until Scorpion’s day on August 29th (or Dragonite’s depending on what people say about the canon voices.)

Another reminder that today we're rating Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden.

Let’s see how long I last~

Can a mod make an executive decision on what to do here and start the next day? :/

We're going on four days of silence with what is designed to be a daily game, and the front page is in desperate need of updating and has needed it for weeks.

EDIT: Ninja'd like Ryu Hayabusa himself.
