-------------------------------------------
Looking back, the first Smash Bros. had 14 characters in it. Melee had 20-something characters. Brawl had 35 or so. So how many characters do you think will feature in SSB4? Personally, I'd like as many characters as the engine developing the game can accommodate. Meaning if that's so, some 100 characters could feature in the next game! but that's wishful thinking, since there are some other factors to consider, like the stages, story mode and other content. So I believe around 75 characters may feature in the next game. I'm going to list as many as I possibly can, and repliers can do similar as well. The cast can include 3rd-parties as well (Stupid character idea alert...). So, here we go...
1. Mario
2. Luigi
3. Peach
4. Bowser
5. Bowser Jr.
6. Dry Bowser
7. Link
8. Zelda
9. Ganondorf
10. Toon Link
11. Midna
12. Donkey Kong
13. Diddy Kong
14. Dixie Kong
15. Wario
16. Young Cricket
17. Dr. Crygor
18. Yoshi
19. Shy Guy
20. Ice Climbers
21. Piers
22. Pit
23. Kirby
24. Meta Knight
25. King Dedede
26. Bio Spark
27. Samus
28. Zero Suit Samus
29. Rundas
30. Olimar
31. Pikachu
32. Pichu
33. Lucario
34. Pokémon Trainer (With Squirtle, Ivysaur & Charizard)
35. Jigglypuff
36. Mewtwo
37. Infernape
38. Darkrai
39. Dragonite
40. Ness
41. Lucas
42. Paula
43. Poo
44. Captain Falcon
45. Fox
46. Falco
47. Wolf
48. Krystal
49. Marth
50. Ike
51. Sothe
52. Micaiah
53. Hector
54. Ephraim
55. Isaac
56. Felix
57. Jenna
58. Sheba
59. Agatio
60. Mr. Game & Watch
61. Dr. Mario
62. Dewott
63. R.O.B.
64. Roy
65. Sonic
66. Tails
67. Snake
68. Albert Wesker
69. Saki
70. Marche
71. Ritz
72. Carver
73. Kurthnaga
74. Plusle & Minun
75. Tabuu

That's all, folks! What're your ideas?

75 will not happen I mean 40 newcomers is extremely unlikely.
Sakurai said already that he would prefer a roster close in size to brawls roster,he would see the charme of games with a large roster(like 50 characters),but he wants to go for quality and not quantity this time.
So I think that we're getting 40 characters,45 if we're lucky(maybe through DLC)

Who now?

69. Saki
Which Saki? There's like 5 I can think of.

I like how you put Wesker there and not Jill or Chris.

59. Agatio
Hey Gak. I found you a friend.

Not happening. We'll be lucky if we get 45.

Not only is that a major factor, but the development team has to spend a lot of time on each character. They have to create moves, make models, think of animations, tweak the characters for balancing, etc.

Leon should be the first Resident Evil character in Smash, even if a RE character will never happen.

Just wishful thinking.

One of the characters in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.

I think 75 characters is way to much. 40-45 characters seems to be a lot better and more reasonable.

I'd love to see 75+ characters myself. Bring on the slightly altered clones I say.

Best roster in the world!

That looks awesome, Neo Power!

Dry Bowser, sweet!

You included both Isaac and Felix!

You put Jenna in too!

Really, Piers?

I like Mia better.

Micaiah, oh yes I like that one!

You even included Agatio, yeah!

Thanks for the compliment, I agree, Swampasaur, that's why we're awesome!

Yeah, Mewtwo!

Dragonite's a awesome pokeon, would love to play as him.

Yes, Yes, Resident Evil characters, yeah, and it's Wesker, he's the coolest!

I love it!

A roster of around 40-45 characters in SSB4? Ooh, looks like the slots for potential newcomers is gonna be quite tight... Well, I did hear that Sakurai wanted a roster that is as big as Brawl's, but since he's got the whole of 2013 (and a development team known for fighting game talent) to tune it up, some things might be likely to change. And I believe that Swampasaur was quite unfamiliar with some characters in my roster; like Kurthnaga. Kurthnaga is a character in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, and he's the Prince (well, was the Prince... now he's the leader) of the dragon laguz tribe. And you know up to 5 people with the name "Saki"? Sorry I didn't state the name of the games the characters come from, but the Saki I mentioned comes from Sin & Punishment. And about Golden Sun's Mia, GaTheZakk... I believe she's more a supporter than fighter, in the sense that she specializes in HP and status recovery Psynergy than offensive Psynergy. In contrast to Piers, who knows highly offensive Psynergy like Diamond Berg and Supercool.

Neo Power, by "supporter" is that another word for hot?

Because that's the word that describes Mia in my book, especially if she's Guru class adept spamming Pyroclasm, attacking with Lachesis Rule, attacking with Hail Prism, being Alex's cousin, summoning Iris, this all makes Mia a boss.

Piers is cool, but he's not a boss because he's not even as good of Water adept as Amiti, who is better at using Diamond Berg than Piers, let alone Mia or Alex, who are in a higher teir than Piers.

Piers has a dumb name

His name isn't any better in Japan because that makes him Picard from fricken Startrek

I perfer to call him by his German name, Aaron, that's cool.

He's better than Rief, I'll give him that.

Okay, that is a much cooler name for the character.

NO! "Supporter" means she'd rather be assisting her allies rather than fighting. Hope that's cleared up.

Uh-huh... but any player can summon Iris! And Hail Prism isn't a move she can necessarily use unless some Jupiter Djinn are given to her. Same goes for Piers.

Piers is cool, but he's not a boss because he's not even as good of Water adept as Amiti, who is better at using Diamond Berg than Piers, let alone Mia or Alex, who are in a higher teir than Piers.
Sorry that at this point in time, I don't know who Amiti is. Alex's powers aren't displayed much in the games, and by "higher tier", do you mean Mia's more powerful than Piers?

Piers has a dumb name
Did I name the guy? To you, it's more like "Piers's name sounds dumb".

I perfer to call him by his German name, Aaron, that's cool.
I know another Nintendo character by that name; the first member of the Sinnoh Region's Elite Four.

He's better than Rief, I'll give him that.
Who's Rief?
