For the uninitiated this is how it works. Every weekday I'll be doing a blog on the characters that deserve a roster spot in Nintendos next character smackdown. The franchises from which I'll be taking characters can be found under the "Part 1" link. If I get good feedback, I may add or change representative characters. Characters can also be added as Assist Trophies. 

The Rules:

  • No more than 4 characters per franchise (trust me, it's a hard rule to follow through with)
  • Characters have to be primarily video game characters.  (I want to add Batman as much as you do)
  • Characters from Nintendo will go first, followed by characters from other companies
  • Characters must be major (I'm not adding Toad, or Sandshrew, or Lanky Kong. Whether a character is important enough is up to my own discression)

Part 1: Representative Franchises

Part 2: Mario Brothers

Part 3: The Legend of Zelda

Part 4: Metroid

Part 5: Starfox

Part 6: F-Zero

Part 7: Pokemon

Part 8: Kirby

Part 9: Donkey Kong

Part 10: Mother

Part 11: Fire Emblem

Part 12: Advance Wars

Part 13: Pikmin

Part 14: Kid Icarus

Part 15: Ice Climber

Part 16: Animal Crossing

Part 17: Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan

Part 18: Yoshi's Island

Yoshi
Synopsis: Yoshi may be the most popular Dinosaur in gaming. His ability allows him to swallow enemies and immediately trap them in eggs. Without him, Mario and Luigi would have never grown up, as he protected them as children. Of course, they have never passed up a chance to betray him...

Notable Appearances: Super Mario World, Yoshi, Super Mario World 2: Yoshis island, Super Mario RPG

SSB4 Likelyhood: 10/10

Surely you don't mean Yoshi should be alone? Kamek would be positively wonderful.

That'd be a decent assist trophy.

I vote for that big blue thing that pops out of the water that you have to shoot in the mouth to be an assist trophy in the next game.

Also, those puff balls that make Yoshi shitfaced in Yoshi's Island. We all remember that level. Use those puff balls as items.

Nah, that'd be a bit insane. Can you imagine how often people would drunkenly stumble over the controls in that one level?

That's a given. Couldn't the pac-e-derm (whatever it's called) be a trophy?
