Honestly I kind of want to see a recent 4chan post with Grookey's final evolution supposedly being a Fighter Pass character just to see him eat crow again. Nothing against Del, he's one of the only good Smashtubers but his obsession with Lycanroc is obnoxious
And then it'll be Zero who gets promoted and he becomes Bayonetta 2.0 for some people.
He's a bit of a paradox-- he's both refreshingly varied yet at the same time also displays some crazed mania towards his most wanted (refusing to acknowledge Incineroar at all and then getting low-key pissy in a video when he was revealed while to this day going on about how it's unreasonable for people to expect an 8th gen Pokemon and hoping for Lycanroc long past the point the train has passed.
Sakurai himself has said that "characters from series with no future are unlikely to be picked".
That should be the end of it; aside from the odd NES era retro pick, if the series a character is from isn't actively being utilized in some fashion then they have virtually no chance of getting in (this is especially applicable in regards to the "fan favorites" that got into Ultimate).
Because 3/4 of Smash 4's unique DLC characters were 3rd party, with the one that was 1st party being from a set aside list of promotional picks.
With Joker out there and Erdrick/DQ representation being the worst kept secret, past trends are gonna continue; heck, Nintendo themselves said in an investors' meeting that Smash DLC is going to be used to reach out to broader audiences.
Thus, it's only realistic and logical to expect the DLC to be mostly relevant 3rd party characters.
I'd say it's the popular opinion now as I see more Roy plays than Chrom. Still prefer Chrom due to the fact I actually play Fire Emblem and dislike Roy as a resultIs this still unpopular?
Anyway: Roy is much, much better than Chrom. Both on stage and off stage (sourspots aren't a bad thing when they can lead into more stuff).
