Captain Rainbow's chances: 1%

Obscure Japan-only game that didn't even sell that well there.

Want: 60%

Not one of my top picks, but I've had an interest in him and his game for a good while.

Ivy: DOUBLE ZEROES

Others have covered chance well enough. I like playing Ivy in Soul Calibur but I don't think she's right for Smash.

Captain Rainbow:

Chance: 10%

He is a Nintendo Character! and Main Character! But a only Japan with only "okay" support and is from a niche game

Want: 50%

I'm okay with him

Ivy...? This looks like a Bayonetta case but without actual Ballot Support

Whatever, I will just abstain, the thread is now in full zeroes this days xDU

Predictions:

Tetra: 0.54%
Isa Jo: 3.5%

Captain Rainbow:

Chance: 4%

His game flopped in the past, but he does have a decent following in Japan. Though his obscurity might be an issue since the likes of Takamaru wasn't chosen for that reason.

Want: 50%

Decent choice with a cool costume and abilities. So I wouldn't mind him.

Ivy Valentine

Chance: 0%

Sexualized, little requested, and Namco is iffy on more of their characters. Also, when's the last time Soul Calaibur ever been on a Nintendo console?

Want: 20%

She's cool, but I'd rather have Sophitia or Nightmare over him. Though my girlfriend would wholeheartedly disagree with me.

Predictions:

Tetra: 0%
Isa Jo: 3%

Nominations: Shadow the Hedgehog x15

Chance: 0% (rounded down) Captain Rainbow was one of the worst commercial bombs Nintendo has seen in a while and sold about as many copies as CBS's obscure Amazing Race video game. I gave the captain a 3% chance rating during the original RTC for actual on the disc characters. But for individual paid DLC? He already let Nintendo down financially once why would they trust gamers to pay for him a second time?

Want: 60%

Ivy: Double Zeroes

Abstaining from Isa.

Terra

Chance: 0%

Were you expecting a Final Fantasy Type-0 joke? :smirk:

Anyway, Terra Branford hails from the SNES classic Final Fantasy VI. If Square Enix weren't so stingy and we were to get a Final Fantasy character, it would certainly be the more iconic Black Mage. (There's also Cloud Strife, but he hasn't appeared on a Nintendo platform outside of cameos, so he's out of the question.) Terra also lacks ballot support.

Want: 80%

Well, I do like FFVI, and I think Terra would make an interesting addition to the roster.

Predictions:

Tom Nook - 2%

Shovel Knight - 15%

Here come the inflated scores.

Nominations: Zael Mii Costume x15

Terra Branford

Chance: 1%. Terra is the lead of one of the most popular Final Fantasy games and is on the SNES, but there isn't much unified Terra support.

Want: 100%. Better than Black Mage (go play Robin). Why go for a generic and boring option like Black Mage just because it's "iconic?" Terra herself is much more acclaimed and I think represents the character depth that Final Fantasy and JRPGs are suppose to have. Black Mage doesn't have that. I know this is Smash where character depth doesn't matter, but I would like to see an exception made for a series like Final Fantasy. Also, esper powers. That stuff is too cool.

Terra Branford

Chance - 0% - Not happening. She's not the big Final Fantasy character, and I don't think they would go with a non-iconic option.

Want - 0% - Better third parties out their.


Isa Jo

Chance - 0.45% - The last game was on the Wii, and bombed. At least is already has some representation...

Want - 65% - Could be cool, but no active interest.


Predicitons

Tom Nook - 0.01% - Ha. Already a part of Viliger's move set, and their's not much left a character can do.

Shovel Knight - 5.25% - Mild increase due to Amiibo.

Isa chances: 0.12%
Giving playable S&P representation wasn't a priority it seems, so unless there's a particularly good reason to put Isa playable over Saki, I don't see it happening.

Isa want: 38%
I wouldn't be against it I suppose?

-----

Terra chances: 0.01%
Owned by SE, and not exactly an icon. Not much else to say.

Terra want: 0%
I'm of the opinion that third-parties by nature generally don't belong in Smash and she isn't exception.

-----

Tom Nook prediction: 1.12%
One of the main figures of the Animal Crossing series, but already a Final Smash element.

Shovel Knight prediction: 13.80%
With the recent rumors I'm expecting a considerable increase. Maybe he's more likely than a Roller Coaster Tycoon park visitor after all :laugh:

Nominating:
Balance change: universal hitstun increase x5

The Directory has been updated.

Isa Jo
Chance:
0%

He has no ballot support and Saki, the main character of the first game, was revealed as an Assist Trophy with no icon initially. While Saki has seen a decent amount of support during speculation, Isa hasn't.
Want: 10%
I prefer Saki, but I am interested what Saki can bring to Smash.

Terra
Chance and Want:
Double Zeroes

Although she was from the famous Final Fantasy VI, Terra has no ballot support and relations with Square are very iffy.
I haven't played FF6, so I can't say that I want her.

Tom Nook Prediction: .98%
He is a part of a Final Smash, which would be much harder to change than an Assist Trophy, theoretically speaking.
Shovel Knight Prediction: 12.44%
We'll see how many people will cite his amiibo.

Using my extra nominations!
Nominations: Lyn 10x

Another face in the crowd, there are more recognizable choices from her series to pick before her.

Terra Bradford's Want: 0%
The only Square-Enix character I can go for is Black Mage, so no to the rest.

----------

Isa Jo's Chance: 5%
Another character with pretty much no demand.

Isa jo's Want: 55%
Since we can't have Saki, I guess he'd do. But he's still not one I'm really wild about.

I admit that i like Terra and i wouldn't be that mad if she got in. Athough the Black Mage is my choice for a SE/FF character. (still i would prefer Terra over any DQ character tbh)

That reminds me, i should play Final Fantasy VI after i finish Chrono Trigger.

Abstaining from Isa

Terra Branford
Chance: 1%
While she is one of the more notable FF protagonists from the NES/SNES era, she's not the most popular or well known in the franchise. Cloud, Black Mage, Cecil and a few other characters beat her out in that regard, and would likely be the choice for Final Fantasy if they were to prioritize a character. That also ignores characters like Slime who also hail from popular SE games and would be more preferable choices for the company. So more then likely she would not be chosen as a third party for the franchise.

Want: 40%
I like FFVI and she would be an interesting character, but she's not my preferred choice for a DLC character.

Abstain from explanation. I'll give the main character from Sin and Punishment: Star Successor a small rating of 0.6%.
Not a prominent enough figure to be DLC...

Want: 0.4%
Abstain from explanation.


Terra
Chance: 0.2%
Abstain from explanation. I'll give Terra Brandford a small score of only 0.2%.
It's just getting harder to write up any kind of original explanation as to why these characters aren't likely...

I'm not very good at these, but whatever...
Isa:
Chances: 4%
Both S&P games got released for VC recently, but that''s not saying much when that didn't help a character like Isaac.
Very little popularity and isn't Saki, which is an AT. (Then again, look at Chrom)

Want: 100% I love the Sin & Punishment series, so having a rep that isn't just an AT would be sooo heartwarming. Also, having a Sin & Punishment rep would possibly help a third installment!

Terra: Abstain

She's cool and all, but Kefka would be much better. Still originated from the best Final Fantasy game of all time.

Isa Jo:

Chance: 2%

He has less requests than his own father (who is currently an AT) and Sakurai's lack of interest in Sin & Punishment this time around is rather obvious. Even if both games are now available in the eShop, that doesn;t change the fact that both games flopped in the past.

Want: 80%


I don't care if he's too minor compared to his old man, I just want that gun-sword combo playable in Smash. Plus, I had plenty of fond memories playing this game while recovering from my surgery in the past.

That voter turnout, it's painful to look at.

Isa
Chance: 0% (rounded down) Sadly I don't think S&P has the star power needed to get a playable character this time around. Though even without the Assist Trophy I stand by my long held minority view that Isa would have been more likely than Saki. An international release, a slightly better selling game, relevence, and a bigger overall role to the combined story (all the same advantages Ness had over Ninten) makes Isa feel like the go-to rep for S&P.
Want: 90% - Because I love the series.
