Smash Bros Roster: UpdatingS

Here will be the roster compilation for Super Smash Bros WiiU/3DS, both official and TAY versions. As characters are confirmed, they'll be moved/added to the official roster with a parenthetical noting which, if any, TAYer called it. Also in paranthesis are which game the costume seems to draw from, such as Samus from Other M or the controversial decision to make Link appear as his Twilight Princess incarnation. (Which ROCKS and screw anyone who thinks otherwise :P)

Anyone who isn't GBD, Kaploy9 or I can toss your own rosters into the comments for me to add. If you can, link me to the Kinja comment/article where you first made the claim, so I can arrange things appropriately. Without date verification, I will remove duplicates in favor of the two above commenters. (I personally will run last in order of TAY official-ness.)

Why am I doing this? Because I feel like it. It's cool to see if we were right about certain characters. The more we're correct on, the more I think the lineup is a good lineup. From there, as long as the moves are balanced, it will be a smashing success.

Official Roster:


  • Mario (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Link (Twilight Princess with Skyward Sword's colors) (Kaploy9 Glue Tier) (I'm gonna say I called the costume, since I'm of the opinion this is the WiiU's Link)
  • Pit (Kaploy9 Sticky Note Tier)
  • Kirby (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Samus Aran (Other M ....Varia Suit? Correct me) (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Pikachu (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Fox McCloud (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Bowser (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
  • Donkey Kong (Kaploy9 Glue Tier)
