For as incredible of a game Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition is, Monolith Soft considers it to be a remaster/remake hybrid. It was a budgetary title that was being developed alongside Monolith Soft's upcoming game with the sole purpose of getting more people into Xenoblade Chronicles as a franchise with both Shulk's representation in Smash Bros and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as convenient entry points.

It'd be awesome to have Fiora as a fighter in the fighters pass but it would be the least logical pick from a business perspective, every character in the fighters pass thus far has either been selected to cater to a new audience (third party fighters) or as a vehicle to promote current Nintendo content (Byleth). Another Xenoblade Chronicles 1 representative doesn't achieve either and that's coming from someone who sees Xenoblade Chronicles as their favourite game of all time.
Oh yes I completely acknowledge that Definitive Edition is meant as a stopgap project meant to draw in new players whilst getting ready for their next big title, however as Nintendo is deciding the picks for DLC and they’ve wanted the original Xenoblade to be successful numerous times but have never had the opportunity, I could see them going with a character from 1 as a result of that. The game is also in a really good spot as it was announced the day more fighters were announced to be in development, which would retroactively give them a good two months to lock them down before planning finished. All-in-all I could see another character from 1, even if Definitive Edition is just a remaster it’s still the most recent game as of right now, though that is subject to change.

Tbh I like 1 but I’d use the recency argument for any installment, if 2 or X was the most recent I’d say those characters would be the most most likely, I just think 1 is in a really good spot when it comes to timing.

I usually try to separate what I find idealistic from what I think is most likely to happen, it’s usually good to avoid bias in speculation.

which ralph are you talking about?
shuuut i thought you would say Wreck it Ralph but no im Talking about

Ralph (oracle of Ages) the reason why hes not 100% first party is because Capcom made the Oracle Games
Thinking about it arent Pokemon and Kirby 2nd Party weird!

heres a Picture

I think he could work as a Link echo

Hes my Joke Pick boi i would love him in but hes just to Obscure/Boring

But he would have been awesome in Hyrule Warriors

to be fair theres a fair number of games that get "ignored"
But theyre Main Zeldas yet there were no Characters of these Games in Hyrule Warriors not even Vaati

And they still dont announce Oracle remakes (still i hope they get announced this year)

There NO Music Tracks from these Games in Smash

And this may not Count but Vaatis Wizard Form barely gets used by Nintendo

there were also no four swords characters in hyrule warriors, nor a link to the past nor the adventure of link

theres no music from phantom hourglass and music from only one of the two four swords.

It sucks there isn't a Echo Pack because if we can't get that many unique Nintendo reps as DLC, than at least it would be nice to have some Nintendo Echos. Here is who I would want in a Nintendo Echo focus pack:

:ultpalutena:/Medusa (Medusa could be her own unique fighter, but she could also work as a Palutena Echo with her having a similar body build and just making her attacks dark instead of light. Plus they could give Medusa some of Palutena's custom Specials from Smash 4.)
:ultdk:/Funky Kong (Easy and cool DK Echo to add.)
:ultbowser:/Dry Bowser (Same as above.)
:ultganondorf:/Demise (Ganondorf or Ganon is the reincarnation of Demise so it would make sense to have Demise as Ganondorf's Echo when you see it through that retrospect. And Demise also has a sword so they definitely could make that work.)
:ultwolf:/Leon Powalski (To give us another Star Wolf member and to balance things out with Star Fox and Star Wolf having a equal number of fighters in the roster. I feel like Wolf fighting Fox and Falco alone isn't fair even for a bad guy.)
:ultfalcon:/Black Shadow (Black Shadow would play exactly like Melee Ganondorf pretty much.)

I would have added Dixie Kong to the list as a Diddy Echo, but I feel like she deserves the semi-clone unique fighter treatment instead. But yeah, that's what I would go with for a Echo Pack.

If we can have four marths sure we could have four foxs. Perhaps next time they should ditch wolf and bring in slippy and peppy

I think them removing Wolf again would be a bad idea. Before Ultimate, Wolf was one of the most requested veterans people were begging to see come back.

Dark Magical Girl vs. Slimy Pirate Captain. I think the former is more interesting as a fighter, but the latter can at least be an Assist Trophy.
But syrup has more Material for a plattformer Fighter she is from a plattformer after all
Also Villian!

No Dixie on this list is a good thing. I respect that. 🙏🏼

To add a little more to this, I can think of more Echoes even for franchises who aren't well represented.

:ultfalco:; Slippy Toad. Borrows the gun from Wolf, or Fox, or whoever. Smaller but wider hitbox than Falco.

:ultsheik:; Impa, Skyward Sword version. Might borrow the Shadow Sneak of Greninja? Even the Remote Bombs of Link aren't too farfetched. Could even use a singular kunai as Neutral B, like an uncharged Water Shuriken.

:ultyoshi:; Yarn Yoshi. Yoshi but light and floaty.

:ultmetaknight:; Galactia Knight. Has a sword tipper sweetspot. Make it beautiful.

:ultroy:; Alm. Instead of having no sweetspot like Chrom, Alm has exactly the same sweetspot as Marth.

:ultcharizard:; Charizard X. Charizard, but single and on steroids. Down B becomes some wicked Fire Blast projectile or something. Make it beautiful.

personally i'd rather these two not be echoes, semi clones at worst
