Most of you know by now that I am the ultimate list whore. As such, I feel that I almost have a duty to create a character roster for the next Super Smash Bros, despite the fact that it may be 6 years down the road. I was not satisfied with the 3rd-party representation in Brawl, so that will be a major point that i will address in my list. Why am i adding this as a forum post as well as a blog? Because if there is a franchise or character that should obviously be added, I want to make sure that I dont miss them, so all of you need to let me know if some character is being forgotten. Every once in a while(I'm not sure what the time frame will be, I will add a blog post including the characters from an entire franchise, complete with pictures, and perhaps a synopsis. Please respect that this is my list, and If there is a character I deem not worthy, then i will simply not add them.
With all of that said, here are the franchises i deemed worthy to have representatives. I'm going to try and make sure that no one franchise has more than one character, so in some cases characters will only be included as "costume changes" of other characters.
The Legend of Zelda
Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan
The Rest of Nintendo
