I'm not comparing Ridley, K. Rool and Banjo & Kazooie to Skull Kid I was just saying not to give up on the character because I thought you abandoned supporting Skull Kid because I thought you thought he was very unlikely.
I will never stop supporting Cranky Kong, Waluigi, Mr. Resetti. I am abandoning Skull Kid tho, mostly because I don't want the character anymore. I bandwagon'd Skull Kid. I was never really invested now I think about it. I'd far rather Ghirahim.

Mach Rider
Eggplant Wizard

I also like these guys but they apparently don't have their own support threads.

and just for the heck of it, let's throw Justin Bailey Samus into the mix.

King K. Rool was my most wanted by far, I’m more than happy with just him. But if I were to ask for more, I would say Dixie Kong, Bandana Dee, Toad, Paper Mario, and King Hippo. I honestly feel like first party representation in Smash is nearly perfect, but a few characters like Dixie Kong and Bandana Dee would fill in some of the last “missing” spots in the roster.

I am gonna do it by franchise because I like that format. Please note my ideal form of smash is several separate franchise-focused fighting games released that give you access to make your own roster of 150 fighters from any of the ones you own on a "Mass Smash" online game.

Mario: Waluigi, Toad, Fawful, Geno, De-Alt the Koopalings, Koopa Troopa, Hammer Bro, King Boo, Gooigi, Mallow
Zelda: Vaati, Impa, Skull Kid, The Oracle Pets (at least as mountable items on a stage.), The champions, Veran, Onox, Ghirahim
Donkey Kong: Dixie, Lanky, Cranky, Lord Fredrik, Dredd Kong
Kirby: Bandana Dee, Gooey, Adeline, Dark Matter, Galactica Knight, Taranza, Magalor
Yoshi: Poochy, Kamek, Tap Tap The Red Nose
Wario: Demon-Mask, Captain Syrup, Shake King, Count Cannoli
Metroid: Sylux, Generic Space Pirate, Mini Kraid, Weevil
Star Fox: Krystal, Andross, Dash, Leon, Panther, Grippy
Pokemon: (I didn't think this throoooough) Gengar, Marshadow, Mimikyute, Cranidos, Joltik, Sceptile, Meowth, Obstagoon, Houndoom, Eevee, Galarian Wheezing, SirFetch'd, Reuniclus, Slaking, Tyranitar, Decidueye, Machamp, Hitmontop, Team Rocket Grunt
F-Zero: Samurai Goroh, Pico, James McCloud (alt/Echo of Fox), Black Shadow, Jody Summer
Mother: Pu, Porky, Masked Man
Kid Icarus: Magnus, Phosphora, Pyron, Medusa, Viridi
Splatoon: Octoling, DJ Octavo
Fire Emblem: Arvis, Sigurd, Leaf, Lyn, Hector, Ephraigm, Multi-General (Arden, Wallace, Wendy, someone else), Multi-Mage (Levin, Pent, some others) Multi-Thief.
Animal Crossing: Tom Nook, KK Slider
Fitness: Ring Fit Trainee (can be played with ring con), Drageaux
Punch Out: Doc Louis, King Hippo, Mr. Sandman, Glass Joe
Pikmin: Brittney, Louie
ARMs: Lola Pop, Byte and Barq, Misango, Dr. Coyle, Max Brass (or just do the whole roster.)
Retrotendo: Mike Jones, Baloon Fighter, Mach Rider
Unsaid Franchises: Ryo (Waverace/1080), Lark/Nester (Pilotwings/Nester's Funky Bowling), Harry (Teleroboxer), Mike Jones (Star Tropics), Zoda (Star Tropics), Bubbles (Clu Clu Land), The Amazon (Pro Wrestling), Ice Hockey Player (Ice Hockey).

Okay, gonna stop here before I come up with 20 more.

whos that?

Basically, she was zero suit Samus before there was a Zero Suit Samus.

Back in the really old days of the original Metroid, you could play as Samus without her armor with certain passwords.
The most famous and well known of the passwords was JUSTIN BAILEY followed by a bunch of blank spaces. This would start you off with armorless Samus already equiped with most of the items in the game. Also because technically she had the varia suit, it would change her color pallet giving her a pink/purplish leotard and green hair.

Green Haired Samus has typically been referred to as "Justin Bailey" ever since.


They brought back the look not all that long ago when the released the Metroid 2 remake.

First party that should have been playable by now?
A good bunch, bias asides, they would be:
-Toad
-Waluigi
-Dixie Kong
-Bandana Dee
-One Zelda character that is not Zelda, Ganondorf or Link
Are the first five that come to my mind.

I'd like to see Machamp, a one-off Zelda character, Waluigi, Excite Biker, Glass Joe, Doc Louis, Funky Kong, and Chibi-Robo. Probably more that I'm just not thinking of but whatever, this the list for now.
