The Video Game culture has quite a number of icons, and while Nintendo has created quite a number of them, they certainly dont have a monopoly on awesome characters. as such, it is my distinct pleasure to create a list of third party presence in Super Smash Brothers unlike anything we have seen in the series prior. Every weekday I'll bring you a blog on the third party characters that deserve a place in Nintendos next Civil War. I am completely open to suggestions, and if you feel a deserving character has been left out, tell me why they should make it and I'll potentially make some changes. 

Rules:
  • No more than four characters per franchise
  • Characters will be known for their video game presence over all other multimedia endeavors
  • Characters must be important and in almost all cases have a distinct personality

Bomberman
Bomberman
Synopsis: Everyone loves blowing things up. Bomberman just loves it more than others. He's been trying to trap his friends in a blinding flash of gunpowder and shrapnel for more than 20 years
Notable Appearances: Bomberman, Bomberman Online, Bomberman: Act Zero, Bomberman Blast
SSB4 Likelyhood: 4/10

No, just doing the most likely first. Honestly, Im suprised Bomberman WASNT in Brawl. Ive got weeks worth of content to get through

Really? I would never expect Bomberman to be in Super Smash Bros. He doesn't seem like the kind of character that would fit in Super Smash Bros.

The link to the megaman blog doesn't work for whatever reason.


Now that's said, is Bomberman a franchise that originated on a nintendo console? I'm so ignorant about bomberman, never ever touched one, and don't really want to either.

Louie - Bomberman's pal - is pretty cool.  He would be a trophy though.  There needs to be a Bomberwoman. :D

Yeah, Bomberman would fit right in. I'd definitely like to see him in the next one.
