If you could pick one retro NES character to be a newcomer in Smash 4, who would you pick?

The character MUST be first-party Nintendo.
The character MUST be in a game that hasn't had a series entry since the SNES at the very latest.
The character MUST get a modern reboot in a few years like Kid Icarus Uprising did.

Go.

Ice Climbers never got a reboot though

That's because the original was complete shit with absolutely nothing redeemable at all about it. And is also fine because they're gone.
>>
>>259578705
A commanding officer from the Wars series.

Honestly I wanted Prince Sable. The only other one I would have wanted is Takamaru. Now I'm hoping for Mach Rider I guess but we're probably just going to get this damned dog.

The same thing could be said about Duck Hunt Dog.
>>
>>259583603
Who would you choose?
>>
>>259583603
Why not? Would you rather have a dog that has literally only ever jumped and laughed?

Mach Rider at least has its own universe set in the futuristic post-apocalypse where robot bike gangs roam the streets and only one guy has the guts and power to save the city.
>>
How would you even reboot Duck Hunt?

Never ever.

This.

Startropics is one of the NES games I can play through every so often. It's great... though last area spikes in difficulty so much.

It's one of the best games Nintendo has ever made, yet it's been long forgotten.

Obvious choice is the guy on the cover of Ice Hockey.

The boy and his respective blob?

Mach Rider, no question.
>>
>>259578705
In a perfect world? Balloon Fighter would be fucking awesome.
Considering that Sakurai thinks the character wouldn't work and gave his gimmick to Villager? Excitebiker or Mach Rider would be really cool.

I'm not opposed to Duck Hunt Dog at all, but I can't see his moveset being as interesting as other potential retro characters.
>>
Either Mach Rider or Mikes Jones. I would've said Mach Rider, Mike Jones or Takamaru but Takamaru's an assist trophy for some odd reason.

Either Sukapon or Sheriff.

>>259591454
I can't wait to hear kids say Sukapon is a rip-off of Rayman.

After playing through The Mysterious Murusame Castle, there's no doubt in my mind that Takamaru would be an excellent playable character. That game is basically a more linear Zelda 1 (which doesn't sound good but by god it is) with more combat and movement options.

I can already see it now, his moveset I mean. If you wanted to make him feel like his game you'd have to make the character a hit and run type, he doesn't have much health. But when he closes in space between his enemies, his sword strikes are powerful! Though at a distance he has to rely on knives which aren't as impressive, but he can upgrade them to sickles for range and fire for power. He can even change the properties of how he throws them! Faster, triple shot, spread shot, 4 shot, there's a lot of combat potential for an NES game. That's not even factoring in the fact that he can reflect projectiles with a well timed sword slash or his own projectiles, that and he has an "invisibility" mode where he can phase through shit and just go ape on people with his sword. Oh and Inazuma Lightning could be his final smash too ...

There's a lot of potential with Takamaru. I hope he gets some relevancy soon from Nintendo what with his game finally being release to foreigners. I'd appreciate a modern game immensely, and with that hopefully a spot in the next game because as a sword character Takamaru is ripe with potential.

>>259578705
Mach Rider is the only good answer. Joy Mech Fight is also okay.
>>
here's your options
>>
>>259578705
Honestly? Duck hunt dog. Duck Hunt was one of the first NES games I played and probably the one I put the most time into.
>>
I can't think of a single character that fits OPs criteria and I wouldn't consider a wasted slot. All the remotely worthwhile NES characters had series that lived on to the SNES and beyond.
>>
>>259578705
You'd think by now Nintendo would have just released old Nes games with new sprites for E-shop or for phones.

I mean simple games for phones are all the rage. Ice climbers and Duck Hunt would do great without going crazy
>>
>>259593302
+ Sable and Takamaru, but they're assists already.

Mike Jones, motherfucker.

>Neutral B - Charging PSI-Blast (highest available charge gets lower based on how high your percent is)
>Up B - Upward kick with the spike shoes
>Down B - Does a baseball sliding kick into home
>Side B - Throws a dagger/tomahawk/katana (random like Peach's turnips)

His final smash could be something really out there, like having a giant whale randomly swallow the fighters and then getting choked out by smoke and blasted out of the blowhole into a KO, I don't know.

To be fair, I couldn't care less about the Wii Fit Trainer either. Wasted slot and so on.

Different person, by the way.

You'd have to be retarded to consider this a reboot. Its a reference at best. DHD wasn't even in it.

I know it's another Mario rep, but Wart.
>>
There are several I'd pick that are already in Smash 4, but since Sakurai is a dipshit they're all glorified summon items.

Out of who's left, Mach Rider and Mike Jones are my top wants.
>>
Excitebiker
Balloon Fighter/Balloon Kid
Mike Jones
Starman
>>
>>259593493
Lots of dolphins could attack.

Or a submarine.

I want one of his alts to be him dressed in drag.

Oh and Urban Champion would be cool too

I would say Lip but she debuted on SNES
>>
>>259593302
Excitebike had an N64 game and 3 Wii Games
Lip debuted on SNES

Good candidates tho
