We are the #AssistAlliance, a movement dedicated to keep discussion of characters who are deconfirmed with some role in Super Smash Brothers. Whether that be an Assist Trophy (our biggest focus), Spirits, Bosses, Costumes, Stage cameos, and/or Final Smash appearances.

Our top 3 goals are:

  • Maintain and promote consistent support for deconfirmed characters for a possible 2nd Fighter Pass or a future Smash title.
  • Create strong, mutual relationships with different character communities and fan bases.
  • Spread this movement to be a voice to those who want to see deconfirmed characters playable.




Just like you, we feel that many characters who didn't make the initial roster cut for Ultimate needed a chance in Smash after a long time. In order to best accomplish that, we feel that it is necessary to reach a consistent level of support for all fan-favorite deconfirmed characters through a unified movement. We started this movement to keep the ball rolling for these characters so it is recognized how much value they hold to fans like ourselves.

We believe our goals are possible if we rally together and work towards a common goal of showing support for the characters we want, no matter how deconfirmed they may seem. Characters aren't deconfirmed until people stop supporting them, and our goal is to keep our dreams alive by keeping their support alive.

Discuss

Talk about any character you feel is relevant to the subject of deconfirmed characters or even your thoughts on the movement. As long as it is completely on topic and Smash related. Feel free to discuss movesets, why that character is special, or the series they are from.

Hopefully with our presence online we can get Sakurai to maybe consider promoting Assist Trophies either for DLC or for the next Smash Brothers!
Right and this one of our main goals after all. As well as finding if any like minded people here that share our same feelings on the matter. There's only none way to find out.

On a new subject, what characters would you support being in Smash that are Assist or Spirits?

I love the smell off activity in the evening.

But you all know me, I am all about supporting Takamaru making the jump. Lack of familiarity can hold him down, but I will never let that stop me.

He needs chance to actually become a bigger Nintendo character like Pit did.

Anyways, my personal pick is the Waluigi himself, I know he has a pretty eh rep in the fandom after the incident back in June, but I personally just really, REALLY like his character.
He's such a wacky loser, he's just amazing.


I hope he makes it in one day. I KNOW he can definitely be added.

As the leader of the Thwomp for Smash movement, I can say all Thwomp fans were delighted to see our guy become an assist, yet saddened at the same time since we got snubbed in favor of Piranha Plant. Thwomp bros would gladly become allys with Shadow bros, Geno bros, and the rest of the bros

I sure do want Takamaru from The Mysterious Murasame Castle/Nazo No Murasamejoh (謎の村雨城), Issac from Golden Sun, Sukapon from Joy Mech Fight, Alucard from Castlevania, Shovel Knight, Krystal from Star Fox, Spring Man from ARMS, Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter, Geno from Super Mario RPG, Jeanne from Bayonetta, Harry from Teleroboxer, Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright from Kirby, & Bomberman to be promoted from Assist Trophies & Spirits to fully fledged fighters in Super Smash Bros. 6.

I mean check out Daimyo-koikoi's concept on Takamaru's Movelist, stage & Item all figured out. You should check it out.

Very nice list of characters. Some more interesting than others.

And Daimyo's Takamaru moves is just amazing. It really does go out of its way to prove that he is no ordinary swordsman and makes him feel like he is a perfect love letter to Japanese culture like Murasame Castle itself. I even asked if I could push his moveset with the Takamaru 4 Smash Twitter, with his permission and giving him credit. He was thrilled with all the attention he gotten since he did work his hardest on it.

I fully support this given that Bomberman and Isaac are among my most wanted. I wouldn't mind seeing any of Ashley, Waluigi, or Skull Kid either. And if we include spirits are there are plenty of options for characters that are absolutely deserving of playable status, most notably Dixie Kong and Bandana Dee imo.

What’s up, Assist Bros! Isaac fan reporting in. Besides Isaac, I would also love to see Shadow, Skull Kid, Waluigi, Alucard, Takamaru, Krystal, etc.

This is just my “Tier List” of ATs I want to see promoted.

Anyway, glad to see we got a SmashBoards Thread here!

Hey guys. You know who are two characters, along with others, that I think should be playable for Smash? Captain Rainbow (maybe as a semi clone of Captain Falcon. And if they were to reveal him as a playable fighter, they should use the Main Theme of Captain Rainbow, which I hope will ALSO be included in Smash. Either the original or a new remix or BOTH.) and Chibi-Robo. I also think both of their games need remasters/remakes released both inside Japan and outside Japan. Sorry. I probably said too much.

Oh! And they should also add Drake Redcrest as a playable character, as well as Chibi-Robo, and they should also put his theme in Smash.

Assist Trophies are so well made, that it’s inevitable that the characters that become ATs will get big support.

I think promoting ATs one, two games after they’ve been introduced should be a priority and an easy way to gauge reception.

Three more characters want to see are Sakura from Street Fighter since she was my favorite character in the series, Jody Summer from F-Zero, and Jeanne from Bayonetta.

Paper Mario should have been in since Brawl. He's my most wanted and honestly I'm shocked that they considered Rosalina before Paper Mario.

Bomberman is the only 3rd party retro character that feels missing. And the Chibi-Robo series could easily be revived by adding Chibi-Robo to the game. There's so much potential.

Y'all know my pick is Bomberman, and I also strongly support Krystal, Isaac, and Shadow. (My other most-wanted characters aren't Assist Trophies, though Lip is a Mii costume.)
Our focus is Assist Trophies, but we also advocate for a number of Bosses and other non-Assist Trophies characters. Pretty much every character that gets deconfirmed by fan rules experiences the same support-killing effect you see with ATs, so they're all worth of support imo.

Count me in as always. I'm a +1 for the Takamaru boys, but I'll always support a good amount of the ATs, Spirits and costume only characters as better-than-solid choices for entrants (Lip, Lyn, Hector, Issac, Waluigi, HW Impa, Bomberman, Medusa, Saki Amamiya, Geno, & Sukapon being very high up for different reasons).

Glad we agree on that. Credit goes to Daimyo-Koikoi for his concept on Takamaru in Smash Bros.

Am I the only one who wants Yuri Kozukata from Fatal Frame to be playable? Yes? No?

That aside, I am in full support of this. There are many characters I feel deserve a better chance and would bring something new to Smash. Shadow, Marx, Yuri, Saki (who's AT is mysteriously gone), Tsubasa Oribe, Volleyball Girl, Mona, Krystal, Bomberman, Shovel Knight, Chibi Robo, Andy, Octolings, Zero, Andross, and Magolor.

Honestly I don't think any Assist promotions will happen unless there's a second season of DLC, which in itself seems unlikely to me. That being said, I'd like it to happen.

My top three favorite picks would be Waluigi, Starfy, and Tiki.
