My Top 10 Characters for Super Smash Bros. 4

So, nearly everyone on the internet has done this list; so I figured I'd put my hat in the ring.


10) Dixie Kong

Diddy Kong brought an interesting acrobatic fighting style to Smash Bros.; so I'd like to see what a different type of acrobatic style could bring, mainly because while I liked the concept behind Diddy's style, I didn't like his moveset much.

9) Ashley (Wario Ware series)

There aren't enough magic users in the Smash series, and Ashley could fix all that. She's shown a lot of magical ability in the Wario Ware series, as well as a scary yet adorable look to her. Plus, the Wario Ware series could use more love.

8) Daisy (Mario series)

This is a bias choice, as Daisy is my favorite character of the Mario family, but I believe she could bring an interesting moveset to Smash, similar to how Peach did. Daisy could bring moves from all of the Mario Sports series, such as Strikers, Golf, Tennis, and Kart. Or, heck, she could have a completely unique moveset that reflects her tomboyish and energetic personality.

7) Palutena (Kid Icarus: Uprising)

Like Ashley, Palutena could bring some magic moves to the series, or perhaps a moveset that reflects her absolute power as a goddess; for example, she could have a move where she sneezes and meteors fall on the stage in front of her. I'd really love for her moveset to revolve around comedic moves such as sneezing, mocking her opponents, or a grab where she lectures her opponent; all of it to show her power as a goddess, because why would she really even have to try hard?

6) Geno (Super Mario RPG)

Here's the popular choice and I can see why ... Geno was pretty cool. He's got a great look, and can have a really interesting moveset. He practically makes himself, heh.

5) Skull Kid (Zelda: Majora's Mask)

Like Palutena or Daisy, Skull Kid could bring a rather unorthodox moveset to Smash, using actions like screams, tricks, and masks to defeat opponents.

4) Jill (Drill Dozer)

She was an assist trophy in Brawl, but she just feels like she could be so much more. Her appearance is really cute yet cool, because, well, she rides in a drill. Her moveset could revolve around using her drill in tons of different ways, and use the power-up system from the game she's from.

3) Paper Mario

I honestly can't make much of an argument for him; he just seems like one of the most perfect fits for the series, and his moveset practically males itself.

2) Kumatora (Mother 3)

The Mother series could use more representatives, and Kumatora felt like the perfect character to represent. She has a strong personality and had all the most powerful magic in her game. She just seems like a great fit for the series and has the potential for a superb moveset.

1) Takamaru (Nazo no Murasame Jō)

Who's Takamaru you ask? Well he was the star of a game that played like an action version of Zelda, and Nintendo had hoped that the series would be their hit, but instead it was Zelda. So, how about bringing Takamaru back into the spotlight? And what better way than putting him in Smash? It worked for Marth and Pit, so why not Takamaru? His moveset would be yet another sword user, but it would be quite different from Link or Marth, instead playing like a mix of the two. Plus, Hideki Kamiya has shown interest in doing a new game starring Takamaru, so lets make this happen Nintendo!

Third-Party Choice - Megaman

You may have noticed a lack of third-party characters on my list, well that's because I'm on the side of people who want Smash Bros to stay as Nintendo focused as possible. It annoys me to see so many of lists like these filled with mostly third-party characters. If I had to choose one, it would be Megaman. Why? Because, in my opinion, to be a third-party character in Smash, you have to be truly iconic, and the only character I could think of other than Snake and Sonic was the Blue Bomber. His appearance wouldn't lok out of place in Smash, and I could see him having a copy ability similar to Kirby, where he changes into ______-Man after copying ______'s power, and would then use their power.
