Which franchise do you feel got screwed over the most with representation in this game?
>>
DK, Zelda, and Metroid.
>>
Fire Emblem obviously.

Ice Climbers
>>
>>322948686
Oh, and Star Fox too I guess.
>>
Fire Emblem.

Even though there's a lot of characters they're all pretty awful choices aside from Ike. Sakurai has shit taste.
>>
>>322948686
who would Zelda even get? Tetra might be cool but people would just scream about a third Zelda
>>
Star Fox. Honestly would love this game if rep. wasn't unbalanced. Essenstially Mario vs. Fire Emblem.
>>
>>322948972
Ganon, Midna, Tingle. Tetra or even Toon Zelda would be fine as long as she has a unique moveset. Toon Link has been in enough games that he could have a moveset of his own. Dorf could at the very least have moves like his side smash changed so they're not just ripped straight from Falcon.

Plenty they could do.
>>
No franchise deserves more represantation than some other franchise, it's just that FE has more potential characters than most other series.

Smash 4 has a lot of problems and the roster isn't one of them
>>
>>322948972
The movesets themselves of zelda characters m8
Tink could have had potential
Ganondorf alone shouldve been different since brawl
>>
>>322948686
DK and Metroid I kinda can understand but I don't see the huge problem with Zelda.

Yeah sure, it didn't get a character or whatever, but it got a bunch of new items, assist trophies, stages, a decent amount of Smash Run enemies, etc
>>
>>322948686


>>>>>DK

Lets not be dillusional here, DK and Diddy are the most important in their franchise and they kept getting buffs, Diddy is easily top tier

>Zelda

Shiek and Zelda have been seperated, your an idiot

>Metroid

Not having another rep doesnt mean shit
>>
Impa. Maybe either of Cia or Lana from Hyrule Warriors.

To answer OP's question, Donkey Kong. It didn't even get an Assist Trophy (unlike Metroid, which got two, or Star Fox, who got one).
>>
>>322948972
You're going to get answers like Darunia and Medley, some other one-off garbage because /v/ are huge contrarians that want only obscure characters

The only answers are Tetra, Toon Ganon, Pig Ganon, Tingle, or Impa

You know, playable characters aren't the only way a series can be represented in Smash.

And in that regard, DK DID get screwed over pretty hard. Only one new stage, no assist trophy at all, no new items, etc. All it basically got in terms of new content was Jungle Hijinx on Wii U and some music tracks I guess. Zelda was atleast treated well enough outside of characters as noted here >>322951035

Even Metroid atleast got three assist trophies to itself.

No, it's fine. It's not like the Zelda series is your biggest selling franchise, Nintendo. It's fine. I'm fine.

DK, easily. It's one of Nintendo's top 5 franchises but they treat it like shit, presumably because they are salty that only Western devs have managed to make good games for it.

That's all Melees fault. We went with 1 character in SSB, to 5 in Melee. Melee should have only had 3 in Melee, Link, Zelda, and Ganon

it's more like zelda just doesn't have enough important playable characters.

the way the series is structured is just unusual. it's sort of an anthology series like fire emblem, with different characters, worlds, settings, etc each game but like mario it has a small cast of reoccuring main characters, those three being link, zelda, and ganondorf. most everyone else is just a one-off character exclusive to their respective game they came from. ghirahim, midna, etc won't be in anymore mainline zelda games, so why would they throw them in smash as playable characters, putting them on the same level as the main characters that are actually relevant to the series as a whole?

sheik is the one exception to all this because she got in as the alternate form of the second most important character from the series in melee, and as shown by >>322953175, heads will roll when a two game veteran is cut, so sheik stays.

toon link's just there because starting with melee, sakurai felt it was important to have a child link. i guess that kinda makes sense, considering the very first game in the series and many other titles later had link as a kid. toon link's the most notable kid link at this point, due to having his own line of games.

It's utter bullshit. A real Ganon would go a long way honestly.
>>
>>322954363
>>Still using Twilight Princess designs, not giving an option for alts when characters like fucking Lil Mac, ZSS and Shulk get alts

I think this one bothers me the most for some reason, and its almost entirely due to the starting SS outfit colors. If you look at it for more than 2 seconds, you'll realize just how shit a job that one is, its fucking ugly as sin. Meanwhile they do actual proper alts with just about everyone else. Its fucking weird.

What I would have liked out of Sm4sh for Link would have been the 2 other Twilight Princess armours at the very least since at their core they were just tunics but with some extra flair to them. But nah, lets just give him 4 recolors, a Dark Link and Fierce Deity semi alt and a shit paintjob of the SS garb.

It's not a good idea because Lucario never fucking replaced Mewtwo.

Mewtwo just wasn't in Brawl. They have one kinda similar move and thats it. The only character to truly be replaced between games is Young Link, considering Toon Link is generally the same concept.
>>
>>322957349
All their specials overlap. It's obviously not a clone, but Mewtwo clearly informed Lucario, like how Blackheart informed Dormammu in MvC.

Impa shouldn't be a clone, but a "replacement" with similar moves.

These are the characters that I would eliminate from the initial roster.

I'm not taking into consideration how "unique" as Sakurai likes to say they are as fighters. I'm talking from a pure Series representation stand point.

Rosalina and Bowser Jr. are over kill for Super Mario. They nailed it with Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Yoshi (you could even lump Wario in too) Rosalina and Bowser Jr. are just unnecessary secondary characters that add nothing but fodder to the roster. I would reconsider Bowser Jr. as he also brings the Koopalings, but for now he's grayed out.

Robin? Complete non-entity just like the majority of FE characters. He's not even the most interesting character in Awakening.

Lucario needs to fucking go. Nobody cares about Lucario, and having him replace Mewtwo in brawl was a mistake. There should only be 2 locked pokemon Character slots. Pikachu and Mewtwo. Jigglypuff is an unnecessary joke character. A more interesting Pokemon could easily sooth the wound of losing a veteran character.

Dr. Mario, Dark Pit, and Lucina? Roster padding plain and simple. I don't care about how easy they are to develop. I'll take 1 newcomer instead of 3 clones. Make them Costume swaps and be done with it.

All of the exclusions you made seem very opinionated. There's no reason to remove any of the characters you listed. They bring something unique to the cast, and the clones were going to be in the game anyway via alternate costumes. Might as well break them off and make them separate, I wish they did that for Alph.

To be fair, Jiggs was actually pretty close to being cut.

http://www.sourcegaming.info/2015/08/17/sakuraibrawlquestions/

I don't expect her to be cut due to the ease of developing her but it's kinda obvious Sakurai sees her as sort of a lower priority compared to the other N64 veterans. And I kinda see why. She isn't the main character of her games or really that popular a Pokemon mascot these days outside of Smash.
