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. 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 day, 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. 

Part 1: Representative Franchises

Part 2: Mario Brothers

Mario
Synopsis: Mario is the posterboy of gaming, and has been for more than 30 years. He first appeared in the original Donkey Kong, but soon became a star in Super Mario Bros. for the NES. Since then, he has appeared on every Nintendo platform ever made, and while he has dabbled in sports and party games, he will always be best remembered for his classic platforming entries.
Notable Appearences: Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy
SSB4 Likelyhood: 10/10
Differences: While Dr. Mario and Sunshine Mario would be fundamentally the same, Dark Mario would make use of his paintbrush.
Sunshine Mario
Dr Mario
Dark Mario

                                                                     









Luigi
Synopsis:
While he has yet to truely step out of his older brothers shadow, Luigi has a devoted and frenzied fanbase, and has created his own identity over the years. Luigi first appeared as a simple pallete swap in Super Mario Bros., but later took on abilities of his own, including his greater jump height.
Notable Appearences: Super Mario Bros., Mario is Missing, Luigis Mansion
SSB4 Likelyhood: 10/10
Differences: Mansion Luigi would be fundamentally the same as Luigi, but with a Vaccuum(and flashlight?) move.
Vaccum luigi











Peach
Synopsis: Princess Peach first appeared as the motivation for Mario's first game, Super Mario Bros, but later appeared in Mario Bros 2
   Princess Daisy first appeared in Super Mario Land, and since has been a mainstay in Mario Party and Sports games.
   Princess Rosalina first appeared in Super Mario Galaxy and helped Mario save Princess Peach
   Pauline was Marios first love and was Marios motivation in his first game, Donkey Kong
Notable Appearences: Donkey Kong(Pauline), Super Mario Bros(Peach), Super Mario Land (Daisy), Rosalina
SSB4 Likelyhood: 10/10, 6/10, 4/10, 2/10
Differences: Each character would occupy the same fighter slot on the selection screen, much like Zelda/Shiek and Samus/ZS Samus. However, each character would have similar movesets. 
Daisy
Pauline
Rosalina

                                      









Bowser
Bowser
Synopsis: Bowser has been Mario's nemesis, and for the last 30 years, he has been kidnapping the princess and subsequently losing her back to Mario. He is the father of Bowser Jr, a little tyke that loves getting in Marios way almost as much as his papi.
Notable Appearences: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy
SSB4 Likelyhood: 10/10, 5/10
Differences: Bowser and Bowser Jr would occupy the same fighter slot on the selection screen, and likely have similar move sets, but would have different attributes (Bowser Jr would have more speed, less power)
Kid Koopa

Since you put some work on this one... I'll comment.

But that is all.

(Really, people are not commenting on this one because no one really cares about these characters.)

#3 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

I guess that makes sense. I suppose tomorrows page may do better. I'll have to hope so cause this isn't a good sign.

When a new nintendo console is in the works i'll be interested.Until then, no.

What if it was a multiconsole game? It won't be, but what if it was? (Like say, part of the deal Nintendo makes with Microsoft in order to get Joanna Dark and Master Chief in)

Then I'll find Phil Collins and shove dildos into his fingernails.

So good thing that will never happen.

That sounds...oddly arousing. Humans have finally found another orofice to pornonize.

Could people at least say "Hey, this is kind of cool! I hope that you do this with "insert series here", or "thats a cool idea you had about adding more characters in the same roster slot ala shiek/zelda", or "YOU SUCK TROLL!!!!". I mostly made this for feedback, but the only real feedback i've gotten was from Snail.

I recommend going completely left-field with the characters you bring up. We all know that Mario and Samus and Link will all be in the next game, go with the characters who have little chance of making it in. 

#9 Edited by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

I will, but I'm making a complete list, and I'm starting off with the obvious ones. If you click on the link, you can get an idea of what to expect, but there is also an option for "others". I'll probably be adding a few non-game characters as well.

What about: Dry Bones?

Dry Bones is not even close to important enough to be a playable character. I would consider him being an obstacle in a stage though. That could be interesting.

I love this idea,  especially the Shadow Mario one

When I think of iconic Nintendo characters.. I think of Pauline

#16 Posted by tubby1010 (4 posts) -

I think they should double the Mario characters. Toad, Bowser Jr., Baby Mario & Baby Luigi teamup, Boo, Waluigi, Koopa Paratoopa
