The ballot wars rage on as fans feverishly bicker about who deserves to be accepted into the Smash Bros. roster. With the closing date for the official poll closing soon; an unofficial poll over on the Smash Bros. subreddit was made a week ago to see if the votes was changed from the previous ones. This poll took out certain characters that the poster believed would more than likely not be making an appearance due to being deconfirmed for an assortment of reasons such as King K. Rool and the Inklings being Mii costumes.

The current winner by double the votes of the runner up is Shantae of Shantae fame. A genie that made her debut into the gaming world on the Gameboy Color, she was a classic platformer and received much love throughout her game character career. Her success in popularity is more than likely due to her surge in popularity after Wayforward’s successful Kickstarter campaign for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. That game itself is still under wraps and has yet to be released after delaying its original release last year.

Other characters that had followed up behind Shantae were Shovel Knight, series veteran Wolf and Snake, and Golden Sun’s Isaac. All 5 are strong contenders for making the cut to appear as playable characters as polls for the official ballot close on October 3rd, 2015.

    After seeing the King K. Rool costume on Smash… I kind of died a little and just gave up on the Smash Ballot lol How crazy would it be that instead of being de-confirmed, the Mii Fighter costumes were actually hints as to who would be in Smash? :OOOOO Think of it, you still have Mario, Luigi, Peach, Link Mii Fighter costumes, and all of those people are in the game!

      Man that would be amazing! I’ve always been hoping for Lloyd. But yeah Sakurai mentioned at one point for some costumes it was put in in place of the actual fighter because he couldn’t do the moveset justice… Apparently. 🙁

      • Dick Sportsweiner

        I absolutely hate it when Sakurai is like that though. It sounds like he is just making an excuse and like he doubts himself. Get it together man! lol

    • Ninten

      Well they were set to be in the game already but you could be right

  • Carlos Villar

    C’mon! Rayman should be Win! >.<

    Shantae! MY LOVE! She “is Ret-2-Go” and will “shake things up”!

  • Ninten

    Since Earthbound Beginnings is finally out all over the world i wanted to vote for the main antagonist Ninten. The one picture is with him fighting the final boss of Earthbound Beginnings (Giegue) well not fighting but looking at him i guess you can say cause he thought he would never see him again.

      I saw the movepool for your ninten, but you know that ninten don’t earn psi-attacks ?
      He wouldn’t make sence, if he would have these PK attacks.

      • Ninten

        Well i mean it could still work out Ana could’ve taught him these moves for smash like Paula did for Nees and Kumatora did for Lucas.

        Actually none of Lucas’ moves are canon.
