Smash Bros Wishlist 2 - Third Party

 Part 1: First Party Characters
In the second part of my meandering Smash Bros wishlist, I take a look at a selection of 10 characters from non-Nintendo companies. An effort is made to keep it even across the bunch of publishers and developers. Some just have more franchises than others.
I do believe SSB needs to reach out to more third party companies. Not just for fanboy's sake, but as a monument to Nintendo history, third party stuff is often just as important, if not more. What's a more important piece of the NES's story, Kid Icarus or Castlevania?
