Top 10 Third-Party Characters that Could Appear in the New ‘Super Smash Bros.’

Published 2 years ago by , Updated July 10th, 2012 at 2:26 pm,

Super Smash Bros. 4 Knuckles

If given the option to include another character from the Sonic franchise, many will immediately request Knuckles. This punch-drunk brawler knows how to serve up a buffet of knuckle sandwiches, and there’s no question that he’s one of the most fitting characters to occupy a spot on the roster.

Knuckles has actually already made an appearance in Super Smash Bros. – he just wasn’t playable. The crimson echidna can be seen running in the background of Brawl‘s Green Hill Zone, and his trophy can be earned and put prominently on display after unlocking Sonic. What baffled fans however, was the fact that Nintendo went through the trouble of getting the license to use Sega‘s most recognizable characters in their game but failed to make more than one of them playable. It’s about time to rectify that.

    Isaac from Golden Sun is still my #1 even though you mentioned it. I mean come on! I wanna see a Ragnarok in SB, Chrono from Chrono Trigger, Knuckles, Lance and Bill from Contra, OR one of my favorites… a Red Wizard from Gauntlet, then you could totally add in a voice to say RED WIZARD NEEDS FOOD! when his % gets too high!

  • Joseph Griffin

    I want Shadow the Hedgehog!! >:(

  • Baylor

    I honestly would like NiGHTS to make an appearance, though Bomberman is awesome, too. Yeah, NiGHTS’s last game was kind of lacking, but this could be a good point to make a come-back.
    Maybe some more forms for Kirby, maybe Ball Kirby as an alternate costume or character (considering having no limbs)?

    Dude. Bionic Commando.

    Also, Shadow is the worst Sonic character next to Silver, I hope I never see him again.
