If you could add one more Zelda character into Smash, who would it be?
More versions of Zelda.
Sakurai likes clones because they require less effort.
I like princesses.
It'll be the first step toward my dream of turning the game into Super Smash Princesses.
Impa is best option.
The only other viable choices are either variations of already playable charcaters (Tetra, Pig Ganon) or one-off characters/relatively minor characters in the grand scheme of the series (Midna/Wolf Link, Ghirahim).
Midna + Wolf Link, I'm not even a waifufag. They would probably have the most interesting moveset out of any Zelda newcomer (Ghirahim would be another sword user, Impa would be another Sheik, Toon Zelda/Ganondorf would be a clone). I guess Young Link using the mask transformations from Majora's Mask would be interesting too, but I think it's best if they just abandon the transforming character idea altogether.
Replace Sheik with Impa, but with the same moveset. Impa is in The series a lot more than Sheik and the moveset still makes sense. Maybe keep Sheik as an alt costume.
Rework Toon Link to have new specials based on weapons from the Toon Link games. Also revamp his standards a little bit more.
Revamp Ganondorf to no longer be Falcondorf
Then add in Vaati or Skull Kid for another villain and maybe Tingle as he'd have an interesting moveset
Vaati would be my choice. He's his own character and has reference material , but is also enough of a blank slate that they could potentially do some interesting things with him.
Second in line would be Wolf link+Midna. Thatd be fucking cool.
I also think a "Masked Young Link" character would be extremely interesting. I'm sure some people would bitch about "hurr 2 many links", but fuck em, Smash fans dont know what they want. They bitch about shit until they try it out then main whatever it is they were bitching about anyway.
Its not that hard to think, but I wish pig Ganon would at least make it as a boss. Then, Impa as a alt of Shiek or as her own character, kinda like a Ninja that uses knifes or something.
I wonder if it would be possible for the next smash bros to have more than one moveset per character
would love to have a Ganondorf moveset that actually features his god damn boss battle moves or at least his sword
very much aware, but they don't change anything notably, its just variations on the same old cpt falcon based moveset
talking about drastic things like say, one of his b-moves being the lightning ball attack and his a-moves actually using swords
Literally the only decent suggestion ITT. Tingle is a recurring character in the series, that alone puts him over Midna, Vaati and even Sheik. Alternatively, I'd also be fine with Toon Zelda.
Young Toon Wolf Link with the transformation masks is all I want.
