Varrith

Other than Banjo, he is probably the most requested character. But now The Hero is in, so another Square Enix rep is likely to none.


Dylanbug76

Soooooo maybe next game?


Varrith

If there is another Smash game, I honestly don't see a reason why they need to make another one. They already have every character in Ultimate. They could just keep releasing new characters and patch notes.


Nowhereman123

They hyped themselves into a corner with Ultimate, it's going to be really hard for them to generate this kind of hype for another one. Especially since they're definitely not going to be able to bring everyone back for another one (Snake and Cloud were apparently really hard to get their hands on again, Square even wanted Cloud to be DLC again). To get this kind of hype again, they're gonna have to pull out some crazy new characters or add some kind of wild gameplay element.


K-leb25

We could just get more and more characters, but from what I know Sakurai doesn't like that idea. Plus there's a lot of points in which Ultimate could be improved beyond the patch notes we get.


FlashWooolFumble

There will always be another, probably not for a while but whenever the console past the switch releases.


[deleted]

No way is Sora the most requested character. If I were to say the most requested character it'd probably be Waluigi or Doom Guy, not Sora.


[deleted]

lol there is absolutely zero chance Doomguy is more requested than Sora.


[deleted]

Check the comments to literally any Smash character discussion and you'll always see a Doomguy comment. The same can't be said of Sora.


[deleted]

[oh really?](https://twitter.com/ssbunews/status/1125204020774285312?s=21) [are you sure about that?](https://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/bzdvo1/dlc_popularity_poll_results)


[deleted]

The first poll had manipulated results (they admitted to purposely excluding Waluigi, for one thing). The second I can't really argue with, but Reddit isn't representative of the whole Smash community.


[deleted]

excluding Waluigi from the poll affects the placement of Sora and Doomguy how?


[deleted]

I'm saying it's not very trustworthy because they did shit like that


[deleted]

Wont happen. Even if i want him, theres no way, so i wont get my hopes up


moonry

Happy cake day, but also, like tinker bell you just have to believe!


[deleted]

I also gotta rat out the person i care about most and potentially endanger everybody i know because im jealous


UnanalyzedFish

I would rather Disney stay out of smash

Is r/quackity a thing


K-leb25

Don't worry, in a few years Disney will buy Nintendo anyway.


Rollermine

*Cries in bandana Dee*


Conocoryphe

Unpopular opinion, but I'd prefer Magolor or Taranza over Bandana Dee as a Kirby representative. Although I do realize that Bandana is much more represented in the Kirby series as a regular recurring character.


Rollermine

Marx would be fun as well, but you need to pick the most likely one


realbakingbish

Marx being a boss already means he’s probably not going to be a playable character... but I definitely think he could be fun


Rollermine

“Laughs in R.O.B*


K-leb25

I want Marx more than any other Kirby character. He's already a boss in Ultimate so that's kinda screwed, but that doesn't affect my desire for him in general.


Conocoryphe

He is playable in Star Allies, with a moveset that could work relatively well in Smash! The same goes for Bandana, Taranza, and Magolor. And I agree, Marx has become one of the most well known villains of the series.


Sethbeast185

honestly all i want is a MGSV skin for snake


lumenwitch

Literally the only DLC character I wanted, but I'm not holding my breath.


MainlyIzzy

Same.


heythereimzack

Man, if you've ever browsed the comments on a post about DLC characters you know full well everyone wants him


piedude67

I just want Porkey Minch. But this dlc lineup seems to be just non first party characters. So my hope is crushed.


apple_a_day_is_gay

Don't loose hope. It was never confirmed that it's only non first party. There are plenty of first party characters that lack a spirit in smash Bros. I really want Porky too, and he has a small chance.


piedude67

Very small chance. So sad. The only thing that would make sense is that it’s the Mother series 30th anniversary this year. And if they would announce Mother 3 or a mother collection on switch for said anniversary. Then maybe with all that, Porkey might get in. But that’s just too good to be true.


apple_a_day_is_gay

Another thing that makes sense: Porky has no representation in Smash Bros Ultimate. He was a boss in Brawl, and every Brawl boss has a spirit in Ultimate except Porky. While there is an Absolutely Safe Capsule spirit, I see no reason that Smash Bros will follow Canon now. It's still not a guarantee, but it's hope.


piedude67

Yeah I was upset he wasn’t a boss. But gave me a little hope for a character so there’s that. Only time will tell. Also there might be leaks saying there might be a season 2 fighter pass? If this is real or not, time will tell as well. Here’s hoping.


Conocoryphe

What do you imagine Porky/Pokey's moveset to be like?


[deleted]

Sort of like in Smash Crusade (a fan game), I imagine.


apple_a_day_is_gay

I think most of his moveset will be based on the Brawl boss fight


K-leb25

I think the idea is more franchises-that-haven't-had-a-character-yet. Although I won't be surprised if all 5 fighters are 3rd party nonetheless, because there aren't many Nintendo franchises left to add a character that haven't been dead in the ground for several years.


notinhere22

This is the best picture I’ve ever seen


Crescent-Argonian

But then we would need 8 extra games on all different platforms and so many prequels to understand the lore behind his appearance


mallyx1

Sora has been in more nintendo games than cloud


[deleted]

Yes.


OrangeArrow17

YES SO MUCH KINGDOM HEARTS IS GREAT


SAFVoid

Only want the wah


smushedtomato

personally, I don't really want him as part of the game. itd kinda just feel off to me


K-leb25

I just don't like his character design (and the designs of Kingdom Hearts characters in general).


K-leb25

I just don't like his character design (and the designs of Kingdom Hearts characters in general).


[deleted]

They're officially deconfirmed and even if they weren't no sane person would want Disney's tendrils anywhere near Smash.


FlameNFD

I personally wanted him in but now that The Hero is in, Sora's chances are basically zero


Naidude_

Really want Dante... but there’s too many Capcom reps :(


[deleted]

Eh, he's still somewhat likely. I'd give him a 6/10 on how likely he is. Sora on the other hand is 0/10, as they're officially deconfirmed and owned partly by Disney.


MR_MEME_42

Yes, but probably not because it isn't really Kingdom Hearts with out Disney and would probably cause issues.


The_Golden_Turd

95% sure the creator of Kingdom Hearts said it ain't happening


Nerf_Tarkus

Doom Slayer Doom Slayer Doom Slayer #Doom Slayer Doom Slayer Doom Slayer


HitomisRightBoob

Never ever. :)


rebbie13

As much i would like, disney exists and the amount of stuff sakurai will need to do sure as hell won’t be good for his health.


OIDmAN_BoTt0mS

Naw


eely225

Yeah. Nah


BaronOfMelons

Yeah sora is really cool but I’d rather have the Doom Slayer for smash.


orangesheepdog

I see you're a man of culture as well.


Automatic_Gur_5263

This aged well.


Nikwon

no


Slimonite

Too bad


Howcanuknowme01

Mega facts


WolverineHead

Hes not my choice, ive never been a kingdom hearts fan in the least but I fully respect that he would make a good addition and would make a lot of people happy. I'm just stoked to finally get Banjo-Kazooie and the Hero personally.


MrRevRabies

Not at all. I love(d) KH (3 was the biggest disappointment I've had as a gamer), but he just doesnt fit, and he is far from my first choice for a KH rep. Besides, no way in hell Disney will let one of their characters go in a game they can't control


Ttimer5

Nor do I want them to control


realbakingbish

Sora isn’t *technically* a Disney-owned character. Disney licenses their characters (Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc) for Kingdom Hearts, but Sora’s owned by Square/Enix (same people as Cloud and The Hero). However, Sora without his Disney friends isn’t really Sora, so...


K-leb25

Why is KH3 so much of a disappointment to you? I've heard that the story is whack (just like almost every KH game so whatever) and that the gameplay is easy, but otherwise it seems pretty in line with KH1 and 2.


MrRevRabies

It wasn't at all. In a quest to save his friends he didn't care about Leon, Cloud, Yuffie, Waka, any FF character, and the big draw to KH has been the blend between Disney and FF. Also, every world was incredibly bland, it was obvious that SE couldn't get rights, or the voice actors, for a ton of characters. The summons in 1 and 2 were charming cutscenes that were amazing looks into the worlds they were from, in 3 they're short and meaningless. The sidequests used to be clear stories with purpose and in 3 they were just pointless collectathons.


TheOnly_Anti

The Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee didn't need to make an appearance, since Hollow Bastion was completely fine. Plus, there's already 20 mainline characters and they needed to wrap up the series. How would you naturally integrate HBRC characters into 3's story? What do you mean it was obvious they couldn't get the rights or voices? ​ Those cutscenes were long and took away from the combat. It's the same reason that Smash has fewer cutscenes for final smashes. ​ And I can't think of a single sidequest that had a clear story in any KH game. What are you talking about?


TravisScottMescudi

No


Mudkip1704

I wanna know your opinions about dlc characters and what you guys want in smash, leave them in the comments


AkenoKobayashi

I just want Sephiroth.


SalamanderOG

I want him more than any other character but I realize that the chance is nonexistant. At least we have The Hero, r-right guys? :'^]


[deleted]

Unfortunately, Sora has been deconfirmed as a DLC character by the Vice President and Producer of Square Enix, Shinji Hashimoto. Source: https://twitter.com/Forest_ier/status/1132956324671709184?s=09


Pighunter213

He's literally the only character I genuinely want to see get added to me anyone else after that is just icing on the cake.


---TheFierceDeity---

Not...really? I like Sora but at the same time he kinda feels like a..."not a character" character. Like everyone else in Kingdom Hearts is infinitely more interesting a character than Sora. Sora is such a "generic anime protagonist" kinda character.


nateap87

Nope. I'm done with swordies in the game. I get too frustrated playing against them and they all play way too similar.


realbakingbish

I agree that Marth, Lucina, Roy, and Chrom are pretty similar, but I feel like Cloud and Ike are sufficiently different from the others, right?


nateap87

I like cloud a lot. If there's going to be a sword wielder then they should at least be unique. Link and cloud are fine and maybe ONE FE character.


realbakingbish

Dang, I honestly forgot Link is a swordie too... although in my experience, he feels more like a projectile character with swords as his tilts/airs/smashes. All about spacing and zoning


drathturtul

Square got the hero, so... but honestly I would love Riku as a dlc character


ejkirby

I would love to see mickey mouse in smash


YepYouRedditRight2

Not really.


PinkGoldJigglypuff

I want him if only for the amazing Kingdom Hearts music we'd get but unfortunately The Hero cucked him out of the SE dlc slot


SpazzieYT

Is that even a question?!


YoYoDudeGuyMike

Minecraft Steve


[deleted]

You aren't allowed to like Steve on this sub, sorry. You also can't like Waluigi on r/SmashBros either, just a warning.


YoYoDudeGuyMike

This is Oppression


Slimonite

I guess we got the best of both worlds


1v1foxonly

Of course we do! ...he isn’t gonna turn up is he ;(


realbakingbish

Officially deconfirmed by Square Enix


1v1foxonly

nOoOoOooooO!


DemonDerek

No! No more more fucking animé swordsmen.


Trekz707

Not really and I doubt it would be possible. I'm hoping for a dark souls or Monday Hunter rep


Slimonite

Must feel good to be wrong


Trekz707

Lol , you must have no life , necroing a two year old thread


Slimonite

Just saw this when I was browsing through some sora stuff

Heh.
