[:plant:] Smash Bros. DLC Speculation - I'm a salty asshole. Want to fight about it?

Cool Smash Bros. DLC Speculation - I'm a salty asshole. Want to fight about it?

Oh hey a thread on Gamingforce Interactive Forums! Gonna use that potted plant thread prefix because Pang got us one as a playable character in the game. Thanks Pang. No actually for serious and for true thank you. Piranha Plant is super rad.

So I'm bored and apparently we have until February 2020 to find out the five new DLC fighters that are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Plenty of time for speculation. What are the five characters that you think are coming? What five characters would you like to see? What is the best and worst case scenarios for these five characters?


Insider leakers like Vergeben have said there will be a Square-Enix character and that Minecraft will be in the game in some form. Apparently Square-Enix is telling employees different characters in order to pinpoint who is leaking information, so all we know at this point is that there apparently will be a character from them. We don't know if we'll get any extra assist trophies or items in the future, so while a creeper as an assist trophy that wanders around and blows up once its close enough to a player seems like a no-brainer, there is a strong possibility of Steve being playable instead of someone like the duo of Banjo Kazooie that had to have done really well in the Smash Ballot. To be fair, Steve probably did well in the Smash Ballot too, but really? I'm sure they could make a fun character out of him but... Oh yeah, there have also been some rumors that Nintendo is in talks with Cygames (Nintendo owns 5%) with including Katalina from Granblue Fantasy. She looks like she'd fit in with all the Fire Emblem characters *yawn*.

I think it's pretty safe to say at this point that there will probably be a Square-Enix character, a Microsoft character, and at least one Nintendo (or at the very least one that they partially own) character. Namco has been part of the development team since Smash 4 and only has Pac-Man in the game while Capcom and Konami have three characters each, so I'd say it's probably Namco's turn to have a second character. It's pretty wishful thinking to think an Indie character will make it in as a playable character, but I think they should have a representative beyond Shovel Knight as an assist trophy or as spirits *cough*stickers*cough*.

With all that garbage dumped on the floor it's time for potential DLC speculation roster lists:

Mixture of safe guesses and wishful thinking categories:
  • Square-Enix character
  • Microsoft character
  • Indie character
  • Namco character
  • Nintendo character

Best case:
  • Geno or Sora (with Goofy and Donald either as support or in final smash)
  • Banjo Kazooie (maybe Spiral Mountain stage is sometimes made out of Minecraft blocks)
  • Shantae or Quote
  • Klonoa or The Prince or Taizo Hori (Dig Dug) or Wada-don (Taiko Drum Master) or maybe Lloyd Irving
  • Bandana Waddle Dee or Rex (Xenoblade Chronicles 2) or some interesting retro character like Mach Rider

Worst case:
  • Slime or Chocobo or Sora (with no Goofy - really I just want Goofy)
  • Steve or Master Chief or any Battletoad
  • CommanderVideo (Bit.Trip Runner) or Sans
  • Ms. Pac-Man (I think Midway owns the character outside of Japan - too much of an echo anyway) or any of their fighting game characters
  • Katalina (Granblue Fantasy) or any character from Dragonia Lost or another Fire Emblem character or any other gacha game bullshit

Honorable mentions:
Dixie Kong
Vic Viper
Daytona USA's Hornet car from Fighters Megamix
Leon S. Kennedy
Frank West (he's covered wars you know)
Viewtiful Joe
Wonderful 101
Phoenix Wright
Crash Bandicoot
Bub & Bob
Umihara Kawase
Marina Liteyears
Mike Jones
Earthworm Jim
Captain Toad
A Rhythm Heaven character
A Tetris Block (maybe L block)
Professor Layton
Travis Touchdown
Lumisa Kosugi (La-Mulana)
Kunio-kun (River City Ransom's Alex)

If you have another format of how the five DLC characters for Smash Ultimate will go down, then I'm all ears. Otherwise I'd like to hear your suggestions of who you'd like to make the cut and who you'd find disappointing to make the cut who represent the following: Square-Enix, Microsoft, Indie, Namco, and Nintendo.

Looking forward to see how dead this thread gets. Please prove me wrong! =)))

Jam it back in, in the dark.

1. Squeenix character
2. Sega character
3. Rare character
4. Nintendo character
5. Tecmo character

Best case

1. Squeenix: Geno - People have wanted him in for a long time, even Sakurai wants him in. I want to say that it's a safe bet, but after seeing he didn't make the main roster this time anything goes (btw, Piranha Plant is hilarious to see). We haven't seen the costume for him yet for the Mii Gunner, but as soon as someone unlocks it then this might start not looking good. However, maybe the additional money towards DLC could help finally bring him in.

As far as the stage, Forest Maze would probably fit best but there are other stages like Rose Town, Star Hill, and Factory which would fit just as well.

If not Geno, maybe Crono, Sephiroth, Squall, or Sora...though Sora is gonna have to go through Disney. If Sora does make it, Hollow Bastion needs to be the stage.

2. Sega: Tails or Dr. Robotnik/Eggman - Capcom and Konami now both have 3 playable representatives while Sega only has 2. Tails would be a great fit since he already has an Up+B where he flies and then tires out after a bit. Instead of the spin dash, he could use his attack from Sonic Adventure where he twirls around with his tails causing damage. The stage might be a little tough to figure out though, but how about pulling Poloy Forest from Tails Adventures?

Dr. Robotnik would be an interesting charcter to figure out. First off, do you have him on his feet or flying around in his egg hovercraft much like Bowser Jr? His special attacks could be different weapons his hovercraft has used throughout the franchise like the ball and chain from the first game or the drill from Sonic 2. The stage would have to be Death Egg. I thought about Metal Sonic, but he would be more of an echo character than a new one.

Now as for a non-Sonic character for Sega? Nights or Super Monkey Ball are the first that come to mind. Having not played much of either franchise I can't figure out a moveset off the bat, but they have some pretty colorful worlds to implement for a stage.

3. Rare: I'd prefer Conker or Wizpig, and while you couldn't go wrong with either of those Banjo-Kazooie seems the likeliest choice. I really don't have a lot to say about this one as I think people would just be happy to see the combo in the game period. Much like Mario RPG, there are several stages to choose from here and plenty of music as well.

4. Nintendo: I'd like to think Nintendo would make another random addition to the roster such as Excitebike, but there's not enough music to work with to support it. The safe bet here would be another Zelda character, but the one I'm going to bank on is Vaati from Minish Cap. He could have some interesting movesets and it would give Minish Cap some much needed love with the music and remixes (which you could also pull from Four Swords Adventures). For the stage, you've got a few to choose from but I'll go with either Minish Village or Palace of Winds.

5. Tecmo: Ryu Hayabusa. The original Ninja Gaiden Trilogy was on the NES (and SNES) and the 3rd game of the reboot trilogy made it to WiiU. It's a classic character from a classic series which would fit rather nicely with this roster. I wouldn't use his moveset from the Dead or Alive series, but bring out his Ninpo arts from the games ala Mega Man. The stage to use...that's a tough one to call, but I'd say pull the final boss stage from the 1st game with the two demon statues sitting in the background creating some hazards (while it's turned ON).

Worst case scenario:

1. Another freaking Fire Emblem character. We have enough characters and stages from that series.

2. No Geno, instead it's a basic Fighter or Black Mage from the first Final Fantasy.

3. Skull Kid with Majora's Mask. I don't want to be his friend, I don't want him to be in this game.

4. Anymore basic enemy characters like Goombas, Moblins, or Space Pirates.

5. Goku.

There's nowhere I can't reach.

Huh, so Atlus got first pick with Joker from Persona 5. I guess we can throw all logic under the bus because we just got another Cloud situation proving that anyone regardless if they've ever had a mainline game on a Nintendo system can get into Smash as long as they're a video game character. Amusing that Xander Mobus voices the Smash announcer, Master Hand, Crazy Hand, and now Joker.

Additional Spam:
Time for a wildcard round: 2B, Doomguy, Crash Bandicoot, and the Fortnite llama piƱata will be the other four DLC character picks. You heard it here first.

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.
