Tiki Chance: 0.1%

As far as DLC characters go, I really doubt we'll be seeing another Fire Emblem character. Even if we were, odds are it would be one of the main characters of Fates. Tiki, while a prominent, recurring Fire Emblem character, doesn't really have the importance or demand to have a realistic chance at becoming DLC.

Tiki Want: 90%

While I'd rather not see another Fire Emblem character, I have to admit that Tiki would be an awesome addition to the cast of playable Fire Emblem characters, one that would stand out amongst the various swordsmen we already have.

Tiki's Chance: 5%
Fire Emblem characters just aren't faring that well in the ballot because people are either satisfied with what is in the game or feel the series has too many characters.

Tiki's Want: Abstain
I'm not too familiar with her, but I think we're good on Fire Emblem characters for now. As long as she doesn't use a sword, I don't have a major objection for her if she replaces a clone in the next game.

Moonstruck Blossom's Chance: 30%
Unless we're getting another Kirby stage, I don't see it really happening. But they could add another one in, either new or Fountain of Dreams where it'd work pretty nicely on and is pretty popular.

Moonstruck Blossom's Want: 50%
I have no strong feelings about the song either way, it isn't bad nor is it amazing. I am for the idea of more music in the game and even more so for more stages.

Tiki, Voice of The Divine Dragon:

Chance: 0.03%
An unpopular character from an over-represented franchise, living in a time where the most popular are about to dominate over all others. Tiki is practically doomed.

Easily my most wanted Fire Emblem character.

Chance: 4.7%%
I just can't see another Fire Emblem character making it as DLC, and if another one does I'm not sure how to gauge who would be the most likely. I'll give the last of the divine dragon clan a rating of 4.7%.
Fire Emblem and Pokemon seem to be the most difficult to rate...

Want: 10%
While I'm not opposed to another Fire Emblem character making it as long as they're deserving, I'd rather see some other franchises get a DLC character.


Moonstruck Blossom
Chance: 8.2%
Not unless we get a new Kirby stage. I'll give the concept of Moonstruck Blossom getting added to the game a score of 8.2%.
More Kirby songs are always appreciated...

Want: 80%
I love the Kirby soundtrack so I would enjoy any new songs from it.

Tiki:
Chance: 4%
Little ballot support, another Fire Emblem character, made less appearances than Anna, her most recent appearance will be in a controversial crossover that most FE fans hate, and might have some issues with her transformation attacks. So many flaws out weight the good and the poor girl will have to wait until the next rising moon for Smash 5.

Want: 60%
Manaketes are awesome and I would love for anyone (Corrin or her) to be playable in Smash. Plus her redesign in Genei Ibun Roku #FE is adorbs.

Moonstruck Blossom
Chance: 10%
It will only happen if a new stage will come with a playable Bandanna Dee. Other than that, I just don't see a new song or stage from Kirby happening.

Good song from a good boss fight. Would have preferred that over the inferior Hypernova theme in the game.

Like Mach Rider the Excitebiker would have to use his motorcycle for attacks, which provides a unique but tricky moveset like Ryu in a way. Also like Mach Rider, Excitebiker appeared in Melee! Even then the Excitebiker was considered by Sakurai to be playable in Melee according to Smash Wiki. However though he appears in a better role as a AT in Brawl, but didn't make the cut in SSB4 ( instead once again as a trophy ).


Ghirahim

Chances : 2%

Want : abstain

A freak who is also a AT.

New Kirby stage 7.78

Abstaining for Excitebiker.

-----

Ghirahim chances: 0.33%
An Assist Trophy and a one-off Zelda villain, though probably a memorable one, but most likely not enough to be considered as serious Smash material.

Ghirahim want: 21.4%
Not fully convinced... he's rather memorable as a villain, sure, but I doubt that he's exactly Smash material. The most memorable Zelda one-off who would feel the most like they would be cool at being playable in Smash is Midna imo, but I guess that's just me. I think his role as an Assist Trophy suits him well enough.

-----

Isabelle prediction: 2.38%
She's admittedly the new official mascot of the Animal Crossing series, but she will do poorly because she's an Assist Trophy, and maybe perceived "lack of moveset potential" to an extent.

Stage from muh relevant Kirby game prediction: 8.80%
I bet that people will not expect any paid DLC stage outside of those from previous Smash games unless they're bundled with a character. A such stage could potentially be bundled with Bandanna Dee, but contrary to Ryu he doesn't add a new series to Smash.

Chance: 5%.
I feel like we're not getting a surprise retro character for DLC, and if we are, if would probably be Takamaru because he's popular now.

Want: 100%. This is a character I have recently been inspired by on a deep level. I'm sad they're not in Smash already too. They are a perfect fit for it with a lot to pull from. I'd be very excited about it. ;)
Maybe if we can get a surprise Excitebike track in Mario Kart 8 we can get a surprise character too?

Ghirahim:
Chance: .5%.

WHO NOMINATED GHIRAHIM WITHOUT KENITH'S PERMISSION.
...ahem.

Anyway, there's nothing in his favour at all. He's now unpopular, irrelevant, a one time deal, and an Assist Trophy which worsens all of those things. I honestly contemplated giving this character a zero.

Want: 100%.

However, I'd like to hope that there's a chance Nintendo decides to care about a Zelda character that's not Link and Zelda because I would still love Ghirahim being in Smash.
In my honest opinion, considering how great he was, he absolutely should have been in the game to begin with. I'd put Ghirahim on the same pedestal as Dixie Kong and Takamaru in that regard.

HI Guys.
I decided to not participate yesterday because i was sick of rating FE characters (and the other concept didn't interesed me).
Well anyway:
Exitebiker:
Chance:4%
I don't think any "Retro" is going to make it thanks to the ballot, but it still has a minimal chance.


Want:30%
Balloon Fighter and Lip are my top Retro choices, but i would be okay with Exitebiker.
-------------------------
Ghirahim

Chance:0%
I believe characters that are Assist Trophies are screwed.

Want:60%
Which sucks, becuase Ghirahim, Takamaru and WALUIGI WAAAAA would have been awesome.

True, been considered previously; got a track in MK8 DLC; and retro
But how much support is there in the ballot...?
Their assist trophy is gone, so all they have in the game now is a normal trophy, which is a power-up in Smash tour. I just feel that many retros don't have the crowd pull to get a lot of votes, and I don't know if Sakurai (or rather, if Ninendo will let Sakurai) skip over 20+ legitimate requested characters to put in another retro that may or may not sell well. If most of the people buying DLC are younger casuals who aren't super Nintendo fans, they're not going to recognize this guy.
Besides, like we said during Mach Rider's day, I find the concept of a character always on a bike difficult to work around. BJ works since his Klown Kart has a propellor so you can consider it jumping or whatever. And if they get rid of the bike outside of a Wario-esque special, then we've just got another Captain Falcon with some Wario moves.


Chance: 1%
Want: 100%
Alas, poor Ghirahim...already an assist and a one-game wonder to boot. Doesn't look good in the slightest.
You know, before SSB4 came out, I was against him, since I was afraid he would take Ganondorf's place for some reason. He is insanely popular for a single-game character - there's a lot in common between him and Midna. Then Ganondorf was confirmed and Hyrule Warriors came out, and I completely changed my tune. I'd love to see Ghirahim playable since he's got an amazing characterization. Ganondorf is the big evil king who looks evil. Ghirahim is the character that just makes you uncomfortable in his creepiness, which is a great concept for another villain.
And then Hyrule Warriors happened and turned him and Zant into Ganondorf's minions and it spawned loads of hysterical fanart and worked so well.
Pity he got in as an assist, since that reduced what little ballot support he had.
I'd have loved to see both Midna and Ghirahim get into Smash to give support for the non-Triforce wielders, and seeing both in Hyrule Warriors was great enough. Pity...
I'll just leave with this great miiverse post I found a screenshot of

Excitebike's Chance: 5%
Low ballot support is going to be what keeps him out. I can the this character making it in a later Smash Bros since Nintendo sure loves referencing the series.

Excitebike's Want: 10%
Is it wrong that my favorite thing about Excitebike is the little tune that plays when you boot up the game? Truth be told, this "character" never interested me. Knowing Sakurai, however, that he'd make it gimmicky enough to be super fun and be another one of those characters I strongly opposed only love playing as the most like Snake, Pac-Man and Villager.

----------

Ghirahim's Chance: 1%
He's stuck as an AT, and doesn't look like he'll be leaving that role.

Ghirahim Want: 0%
If Zelda gets another character. I rather it not him. I really don't see his appeal at all. Oh yeah, and minus points for being yet another sword user. At least he's a better choice than yet another Link.

EXCITEBIKER:
CHANCE: 8%
The franchise has always been around despite supposedly being 'retro' as no one remembers anything but the NES game. And he was considered back in Melee, too. This sounds like a good prospect, but Excitebikers don't have a huge amount of ballot support. And I don't really think they would generate a large amount of hype, as they aren't as notoriously well known as Duck Hunt.

WANT: 75%
Excitebike was one one of the first games I played and it's still a fun game. I would certainly want this gem represented.​

GHIRAHIM:
CHANCE: 0%
Assist Trophy, which is a huge dampener for anyone's chances, be it a spandex wearing money grubber, a dark snarky princess or a fabulous tongue-wagging demon lord.

WANT: 25%
Only for Kenith. And his awesome quotes. I have no interest otherwise, having not played Skyward Sword.​

Excitebiker

Chance: 1%
Not a highly requested retro character, sure he was considered for Melee, but was ultimately cut due to the dev team's problems making him jump, thus ice Climbers got in...
Any retro pick for DLC is a long shot since most people playing nowadays wouldn't be too familiar and the thought of a motorcyclist may bewilder some people me thinks...

----

Want: 40%
Not too interested, but I can see some potential for a moveset using tricks flips and probably popping some wheelies, and picture a forward smash being an on the spot wheelie with his front wheel spinning for damage....or something i dunno...I'm not sure why they can't just make him do a bunny hop like for BMX, sure it's a motorcycle but the motions would be tha same, anyways I think they'd be better suited as an Assist (this time with a proper 3D model)

----

Speaking of Assists...this one is particularly FABULOUS!!!!!


Ghirahim

Chance: 5%
Another great character forced into the role of a secodary...Skyward Sword wasn't too popular amoung fans, it still did decently but ghirahim was liked even by those who didn't like the game. He's got some great potential for a moveset, as well as being another Zelda character that isn't part of the Triforce in some form...in addition to his role as an Assist he's got some competition with other Zelda characters; Impa, Tetra, Ganon as well as his fellow assists Midna:love:, Skull Kid, and Tingle...

----

Want: 75%
Not gonna lie he'd be pretty cool...at first I didn't really like him, mainly because I'm not really into the whole flamboyancy thing in some characters but I grew used to it and begun to see how colourful this guy rather was...The problem is, there is a certain other Zelda character that is currently an Assist that I would vastly prefer over him...........no it is NOT Tingle:glare:
