Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS Character Suggestion Ballot Ends on October 3

Vote Dan Hibiki.

106 Comments

On October 3, 2015, Nintendo will stop taking suggestions for characters to add to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, which means there's just two more days left for everyone to suggest Dan Hibiki.

By heading to Nintendo's official character suggestion site, you can submit the character you're voting for (Dan Hibiki), the title of the game the character appears in (Dan Hibiki Presents Saikyo Street Fighting), and why he should be in the game (Because he's Dan Hibiki).

To help you with the process, GameSpot has provided an example below.

No Caption Provided

Nintendo announced its Smash Fighter Ballot initiative in April 2015 and, thus far, fans have been wasting their time and effort suggesting Spyro the Dragon no one cares about, Tom 'The Crook' Nook, Lankey Kong (???), and that purple genie girl.

Everyone has had their fun but it's time to get serious now, and there's no one more serious than Dan Hibiki, a legendary fighter that practices the ultimate mixture of the Ansatsuken and Muay Thai fighting styles.

In his ongoing quest to seek revenge for the murder of his father, Dan has travelled far and wide, defeating the most powerful warriors around the world. With the Street Fighter universe thoroughly conquered, it's time he shows the pantywaists in Nintendoland a thing or two about fighting.

You know what to do, loyal disciples of Hibiki-sama. Get to work. Spread the cause on Twitter by using #SmashHibiki.

Rayman, Bomberman, King K. Rool(Captain K. Rool for maybe alternate costume/transformation like Zelda/Sheik, Banjo fricken Kazooie! Tails, Knuckles, maybe even Grunty, Waluigi would be fine, Simon Belmont would be sweet, I never thought of him..maybe Leon from RE4 lol, Ganondorf from Wind Waker..fricken Gray Fox! Shit TUROK! I'm sure I can think of more.... idk why Gayspot is all about stupid Dan, they think they're being cute or clever on this crap site, but they're really not, and they're not helping the situation, or the industry(rather the gamers) out at all

@DoomglooM: yup Birdo, Shyguy, Boo, Conker, maybe Joanna Dark.. Idk why they gave Mario the F.L.U.D.D but skipped out on Luigi's Poltergust 3000?? at least in BRAWL....Mario's been in how many games?..and had that once, Luigi had like his one own game(now 2) and he has the vacuum in both? lol so IDFK? Chun Li would make sense, since her and Ryu are like the most to recognizable fighters from SF oh and yeah Akuma! or M. Bison but no, Akuma.... Snake should come back as well, Zero from Megaman, Earthworm Jim, Spyro would be alright-I think he had a game on the Gamecube, yeaup Vyse from SkiesofArcadia, Dixie Kong would be cool, bring back Wolf....put Paper Mario in there!? I feel like slapping myself in the face Idk why I have to spell all this shyt out?! Terry Bogard would be sweet maybe with Joe and Andy or Wolfgang, Kammy Koopa(Idk if he/she is an assist trophy or not...doesn't matter, Squirtle and Charizard were just in poke balls before being playable.....I'm done for now,

Thanks for anybody that reads this and agrees with anything that I said. :)

@DoomglooM: Heck, it'd be cool if they threw PLOK! in there too. Of course, Nintendo would have to get the developers of all these characters on board too, at least that's what I'd do, I think it'd be cool if the had the Jet Force Gemini team in there too actually lol

Where's Wart?

No seriously...not just in Smash, but in general...where is the poor guy? A major villain of a numbered Mario entry (I understand the history of Super Mario Bros. 2's development), and a king of nightmares, who was somehow passed over in Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, a perfect opportunity to resurrect a fallen villain...especially with the underlying tones of Luigi feeling useless and trying to be noticed for once. You'd think in a world where they still have rights to Birdo, Shyguy and many others, that they'd at least touch on the forgotten fella.

He might not make the best fighter (though he is a heavy with projectiles, maybe slumber attacks or even an odd character who summons other Mario 2 villains), but I voted for him out of principal.

@Oloryn: Oh my God, FINALLY. Some else who wants Wart back. Thank you! I've been wanting Nintendo to bring back Wart (and Triclyde, Mouser, Fryguy, etc.) since Super Mario Bros. 2 came out back in '88 - awesome characters with so much potential. Loved 'em and Nintendo needs to let them shine again!

My opinion on the most deserving characters would hve to be King K. Rool, Bomberman, Waluigi, Toad, Daisy, Banjo and Kazooie (except unlike Banjo, yooka laylee might actually be possible if smash5 ever exists), Rayman, Inkling, possibly Tails because Sonic needs his Luigi, and any other returning veteran. And I guess Simon Belmont can join too.

I don't even think Daisy and Toad would be all that great, but if Waluigi, Toad, and Daisy are added, the main Mario team would be complete.

But I honestly feel like the most deserving of them all is King K Rool though. And I never even really played DK games. But he's the Main villain of a main 1st party Nintendo series, is recognizable, has a huge fanbase in multiple countries, has been in lots of games, could have an excessively unique moveset based on all his boss battles, is a heavy character which there aren't many of in smash, is a villain which there also aren't many of, and is greatly overdue for a re-appearance in ANY game. And he has a cool theme song.

But hey, that's just my opinion.

@cardboardedbox: I agree, you sound like me. I've been saying the same thing for awhile....Rayman, Bomberman, King K. Rool(Captain K. Rool for maybe alternate costume/transformation like Zelda/Sheik, Banjo fricken Kazooie! Tails, Knuckles, maybe even Grunty, Waluigi would be fine, Simon Belmont would be sweet, I never thought of him..maybe Leon from RE4 lol, Ganondorf from Wind Waker..fricken Gray Fox!

@cardboardedbox: Dude. No one wants the same old nintendo characters. Toad? Waluigi? Nope. Firstly, Snake should come back but Naked or Venom Snake (not Solid for a change). Ice climbers were one of the most used in tourneys, they should be back. See, Megaman, Shulk, and Ryu stood out. We need more characters that stand out, not another king dedede or generics.

Maybe a Final Fantasy character (from crystal bearers) why not? He had great personality and telekinesis among other combat skills. He even has a final smash. Arguably he's out dated. Maybe a Monster Hunter. Professor Layton god dammit. Simon from Castlevania.

Why bother doing these? They're just going to ignore Bayonetta again.

I would think someone from Chrono Trigger would be a great idea for a third party addition (i.e. Magus or Crono).

I already voted for Quote/Curly Brace from Cave Story when this first launched, so this time, I voted for Papyrus from Undertale; he would fit perfectly in Smash in my eyes. XP

Seriously... wtf? It's not even funny, just stupid.

Put Snake back in, and stop being stupid.

2. Freia from Zangeki No Reginleiv (a M Rated Nintendo game)

3. ANYBODY From Baten Kaitos 1 & 2

4. ANYBODY from Skies of Arcadia

5. Adult Twili Midna

6. Raine from Tales of Symphonia

Hey Tamoor, you misspelled John Cena multiple times. Perhaps you should take care of that whenever you have the chance.

Add King K.Rool, Dixie Kong, Issac, Bayonetta, Inkling, Shantae, Shovel Knight and Banjo & Kazooie

We’re already thankful of soon getting a street fighter guy, for the first time, with his own personal features and you’re already voting for another street fighter character? A character from a new series would be better. Also, why not vote for a character that we haven’t seen in a long time or never seen in updated graphics so we can be happy Nintendo is bringing back this character to us? Dan is already in the latest released street fighter game.
