As much as I want the remaining two characters of the Pass to be third party, I am willing to sacrifice one of them if it means Mike Jones gets in.
If we are indeed getting Mike as a playable character, then he has to be revealed next! If for whatever reason he is the final character, then for people it would be a disappointing way to end the DLC. Not to mention how much hate he might get for being a Nintendo character and also being the last fighter. . .

Just a "little" rant here but I'm really starting to get tired of people seeing blue R.O.B. as a navcom reference. NAV-COM's sprite is NOT BLUE. It's PURPLE. If anything, the pink skin resembles navcom more by that logic since that skin has purple segments. Heck, his original artwork has robs gray colors.
Can I also just say, that this thought makes no common sense? So, how is it possible that NAVCOM is the character that represents StarTropics for all these years with an objectively inaccurate skin, and there's still NO Mike Jones trophy/sticker/spirit? It just doesn't add up. It's very obvious that NoJ doesn't care or is even aware of StarTropics, so why would they even give rob a skin referencing a minor character in that game, and yet they refuse to aknowledge the MAIN PROTAGONIST OF SAID GAME FOR OVER A DECADE NOW!? In the end, ST is NOT represented, the Chronicle mention from Brawl does not count and they BETTER give us at LEAST a glorified PNG of Mike before Ultimate is done with dev support, or else... I dunno what we're gonna do after this you guys...

Allright, let's end this post on a more... positive note?
Anyone here remember this Brawl in the family comic? I do... Honestly I get its made to mock the EarthBound/StarTropics comparison, but... kinda getting annoyed of that whole thing as well. Specially in regards to Smash...

Can you just imagine the reaction if Mike Jones had been revealed instead of Pyra/Mythra? I wonder if he did get in, would he get an alt? Main appearance is how he looks in Startropics and his alt is with his jacket as in Zoda's Revenge?

I'm not sure if we would even get a spirit event for Startropics. The first Fire Emblem game got localized after all these years and it'd be nice if Star Tropics was ported to Japan.

It'd even be interesting to see a Mii Swordfigher costume with a baseball bat standing in for the sword.

Happy 1st birthday to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The Nintendo game that brought us the first reference or even a mention of StarTropics since Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

It really grinds my gears when people start saying that StarTropics copied EarthBound. The only reason they have stuff in common is that both were created with an American audience in mind! Oh, boy and don't get me started with the whole "bUt MiKe wOuLd Be A nEss ClOne." Mike doesn't use his yo-yo and psychic powers the same way Ness does! And even then, they also like to ignore the fact that Ness borrows nearly all his special attacks from other EarthBound characters! Just take a look at this:

One of these days they'll say yes.
For context, the Seattle Mariners are a baseball team. They were used to be owned by Nintendo. Mike Jones is an ace pitcher from Seattle and he comes from a Nintendo developed game. It's just a perfect mashup.
