For those of you waiting for my next Ideal Choices for Smash Bros, I'm sorry for not posting them on time. I've been busy with school and work, that I have little time to make these things. Plus there was a character I wanted to post after Sceptile's week but as the title shows, he was an assist in Smash 4. Which brings up the point of this journal: should assists in Smash 4 become fighters? There's no point to voting them since they're already in the game via assisting. But with the ballot system, people still vote for the possibility for them to become fighters.
With that said, I'm going to talk about the guys I'd like to see in SSB4 even though I won't vote for them. IMO they're already in so that's good enough. If it weren't for the ballot and them either not returning or being considered as assists, I'd say yes for their inclusion.
Waluigi was going to be my next choice since for a Mario (not Wario) series character, he's one of the most popular yet strangest choices for SSB since he's pretty pointless in terms of him just being no more than Mario party material as he never had his own game or co-starred in one. He'd be a special Mario character for being one who's never appeared in a mainstream Mario game/Mario sports (spinoff) representative. Kinda of a waste with his sports and possibly even Water-based attacks but at least he's an assist again.
There's also Takamaru who was going to be a fighter but was demoted because of his popularity. It's a shame since he'd represent the Famicom Disk Era and his sword and ninja star throwing attacks could be something special to the roster. We also have Ashley for the Wario series. Another magic user and tiny fighter who could be given attacks based on her games and even to the point of having original attacks. And Lyn from Fire Emblem with her quick swordplay and use of a bow. Saki from Sin and Punishment is another good choice since he utilizes the Cannon Sword which is both a saber and blaster (and guns that become swords are cool). Midna from Twilight Princess could be Smash Bros' Millia Rage (where most of her attacks utilize her hair), Dillon from Dillon's Rolling Western could be a stronger yet slower version of Sonic and Dark Samus could be a Samus (semi) clone but with altered specials and a different FS.
Overall, current assists being voted as DLC fighters seems like a waste but if they weren't in, I'd vote for them (or Waluigi).
