I don't know if I can call that a roster, XtremeAngler.

It looks more like a list of characters you want added imo.

yeah almost none of these guys are likely or even characters I'd like to see
Daisy and Rosalina are both rather unimportant characters for the mario series,daisy appears almost only in spinoffs and rosalina appears even less frequently(she was in 2 main games,but only in one she really did all that much).
Waluigi isn't that likely either because of the same reasons,though he may have a slightly better chance simply because he is luigis evil counterpart

any sonic characters besides sonic are unlikely,even sonic could have problems to return(and even if they'd add a second sonic character it wouldn't be silver)

skull kid,ghirahim and demise are all unlikely,they have only in one game a major role,which simply pales compared to the number of games from the zelda series

king hippo won't get into the game either,one punch out character is enough

Medusa is also not that likely,the kid icarus series won't get 3 characters and palutena is simply the best choice for a second kid icarus rep

waddle dee has also a rather low chance,he is playable in return to dreamland,but he doesn't appear all that much in other games and the kirby series has enough charas with 3

And I don't even know what to say to the smash bros,I mean where is the point in them?

I dunno about porky,technically he should have a chance to get into the game(if they kick out lucas or make him a special costume for ness),because he is one of the only 2 recurring characters the mother series has(the other one is giygas who is not suited as a character at all).But the problem would be how to make porky into a fitting character.after all he only fights in his spider mech.
I think it is not impossible for him to get into the game,considering the mech is usually much smaller than in brawl and that we've already got a four legged character with ivysaur,but I still kinda doubt it.

Palutena,Krystal,little mac,king k.rool and megaman are the only likely ones

Overall you should also look at the ratio between series.
You are suggesting 3 mario characters and 3 zelda characters,which would give these series a total of 7 characters,but you do not suggest any pokemon characters

its just the new characters, so here it is:

daisy (Pretty interesting, but perhaps Peach may be all the princesses Super Mario needs)
palutena (Well, I wouldn't mind.)
rosalina (I'm not sure about her, yes she's popular, but she quite unlikely to be playable. Highest I see her: a viewable trophy.)
krystal (A pretty good choice. You have my vote.)
silver (I wouldn't count on him; since he's not Nintendo property)
shadow/tails/knuckles (i dont care which one) (The one with the highest chance is Tails, personally. But as the same case is with Silver, I wouldn't expect him to be playable.)
skull kid (Another character the smart money would be wise not to be betted upon.)
megaman (Sakurai did think of adding a Capcom character. But with Megaman's questionable unappearance in the recent videogame circle, some would be wise not to get their hopes up too high.)
waluigi (Hmm... Both Waluigi and Daisy have been seen majorly in Mario spinoffs. Maybe they'll be assist trophies?)
ghirahim (Ah, the newest Zelda popular villain. I wouldn't mind his appearance, but I have reason to doubt.)
demise (Ghirahim should suffice; let's not go overboard with the Zelda villains.)
medusa (Demise's reason applies to Medusa as well.)
porky (Him? I'm not sure... I like him as a boss just fine.)
king k rool (A character many have wanted since Melee. Perhaps he just might make the cut; Donkey Kong is quite lacking in bad guys.)
king hippo (I'll overlook him, since I don't know a thing about the guy. If he does come from Punch-Out!!, maybe one person may be seen.)
waldee (whatever the guy was called in return to dreamland) (Perhaps silence may best be observed here. Are you sure you don't mean the guy people call Bandana Dee?)
little mac (Continuing from King Hippo: That person is him. Little Mac.)
smash bros (an idea i had for a couple of guys who were like prospectors with hammers, names are the smash bros) (You've piqued my interest. How will these guys look like and will they control like the Ice Climbers?)

so wadya think?
Decent list. Questionable is the unappearance of Pokemon.

Way too many new characters, but let's get to the list:

-Daisy: Very much doubt it. In previous games she's been an alternative costume for Peach.
-Palutena. Has a fair chance for getting added.
-Rosalina. Could be added as another Peach costume instead (which should change her hair as well)
-Krystal. 4 Star Fox characters ain't gonna happen. Slight chance of Krystal replacing Wolf I guess.
-Silver. No.
-Tails or Knuckles. Very slight chance of getting added, maybe by replacing Snake. Shadow is already one of Sonic's alternative costumes.
-Skull Kid. Ehm, nope.
-Megaman. Somehow I feel he has a fair chance of getting added by replacing Snake as 3rd-party character.
-Waluigi. Slight chance, but I'd say no. There's already too many Mario characters.
-Ghirahim. No. There's already enough Zelda characters.
-Medusa. Nope. Maybe as a boss battle, not as playable character.
-Porky. Nope. Remains as boss character.
-King K. Rool. Ok chance of getting added due to popular demand.
-King Hippo. Doubt it, but might be fun to see added.
-Waddle Dee (I assume that's who you meant). Nope, he's just one of Dedede's minions.
-Little Mac. I'd see him getting added over King Hippo. Would be fun to see.
-Smash Bros. ???

Rating: 3/10
Few nice suggestions, liking Little Mac addition. Other than that not much special, and too many unlikely / ridiculous suggestions.

Ones I think have a chance:
palutena Female, Sakurai's series.

krystal Possible Wolf replacement. Female/

megaman Possible 3rd party.

ghirahim small chance. very small. Adds villain to roster.

medusa see Ghirahim. Female.

king k rool Adds villain to roster.

waddle dee Sakurai's character, so small chance.

little mac On most lists, fights, was assist trophy.


What ones I wish were in:

palutena Because I like Kid Icarus

skull kid Because I LOVE Majora's Mask

ghirahim Better than Zant.

waddle dee Because there are too many sword users.

little mac Because he has a lot of moveset potential.

1. No he isn't. He's an Assist Trophy.

2. No there isn't.

3. Not in Return to Dreamland.

1. True, but one of Sonic's alternative costumes is pretty much like Shadow.
2. There is, unless they remove Shiek or Toon Link, then I could agree on adding 1 extra.
3. In Brawl they are.

That's to many new characters imo. I hope they only ad one or two.

Dunno, we already have 2 balloon-ish characters (Kirby + Jigglypuff), which are both more popular than Waddle Dee anyway.

Waddle Dee is not a baloon, so it's not simillar to any character. Plus it's still popular.

Hence the -ish I used. Obviously it's not a balloon, neither are Jigg and Kirby, but all 3 are shaped in a form similar to that of a balloon.

Jigglypuff: The baloon Pokemon

Kirby: Acts like a baloon.

Waddle Dee: Circle-shaped monster that doesn't puff up.

Umm... Waddle Dee only has the shape of a baloon, and nothing else. It can only jump and not puff up like Kirby and Jigglypuff. So it's different enough.
