Apparently, a character list for the next SSB game, which according to the list will be titled Super Smash Bros. Universe, has been leaked.  The list is as follows:

King K. Rool (Donkey Kong)
Zoroark (Pokémon)
Ghirahim (The Legend of Zelda)
Little Mac (Punch-Out!!)
Saki Amamiya (Sin and Punishment)
King Hippo (Punch-Out!!)
Ridley (Metroid)
Prince Sable (For the Frog the Bell Tolls)
Palutena (Kid Icarus)
Professor Layton (Professor Layton)
Mega Man (Mega Man)
Krystal (Star Fox)
Slime (Dragon Quest)
Shulk (Xenoblade)
Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog)

To be honest, I believe this is fake, especially since the list contains Slime, Shulk, and Ridley.  Now this is all just speculation and the source can be found here -…

What are your thoughts on this rumor?

Im pretty sure its true, cause the punchout series made a best seller in 2009 so thats lil mac, and if little mac and king hippo are in ill buy it first day out! i wish more sonic characters were in like shadow, tails, eggman, SILVER (rly want silver in), or knuckles. (knuckles rly makes sense) ridley would be shrunk, like bowser. sonic is refering to classic sonic. slime because mario and his game have a couple games together. megaman would be like kid icarus, they put him in he does well then they make a new game. I heard that they're aiming on bringing back old characters, kinda like kid icarus or balloon fighter or something like that. but listen, i dont hate ghirahim or anything, but i hope they dont replace ganondorf cause hes like my favorite character. they should rly have demise in instead! my list would be:

1. Little Mac
2. King Hippo
3. King K. Rool
4. Silver
5. Demise
6. Shadow
7. Medusa
8. Krystal
9. Wart (they should REALLY bring him back)
10. bowser jr.
11. waluigi
12. lyn
13. daisy
14. louie (pikman series)
15. porky
16. waddle dee
17. toad
18. mewtwo
19. ghirahim
20. megaman
21. ridley
22. slime
23. classic sonic
24. toon zelda
25. baby mario bros
26. paper mario

Look it may be alot but the more the merrier!

Yeah this list is fake. But characters like Palutena, K. Rool, Ghirahim, and Little Mac will mostly likely be playable characters in smash 4(the 1st 3 definitely). Those 3rd parties listed are a very unlikely. SInce Namco is working with the development of smash 4 3rd party Namco chars like Pac Man, Yoshimitsu, Klonoa, kos-mos, or Lloyd Irving could be it...but the obvious 1st pick would have to be Pac Man. That's if would want him in it, I heard they aren't sure if a Namco character should should be in smash 4 because after all it's Nintendo's characters fighting each other.

Btw I don't think Starfox needs a 4th rep *points at Krystal*. She has a good chance of being in it, but I'd rather have Slippy or Leon any day.

Seems really unlikely with Slime being in it...but who knows?

:c I would hope for it to be true D: because of Ghirahim.
albertojz356 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012
I doubt it but I really hope out of that list that Palutena, Little Mac and Krystal are in SSB4.
CrescentNubila Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
Although I would like to Krystal added to SSB roster in addition to Wolf, I think this list is fake.

Deffinetly Fake. Megaman in smash bros. is just to good to be true

LOL. Ridley would take up half the stage if they didn't shrink him to a silly size. :pointandlaugh:
The scale he was as a boss in Subspace Emissary is accurate.
Bring in a Space Pirate (Prime) and/or a couple of the other hunters already! :disbelief:

Saki, and Krystal (Adventures version with her staff) would be awesome.
Definitely add Mega Man.
I love Palutena, but I'm not sure what she would do. She is a goddess, after all...
More variety in characters with weaponry or magic would be great! :eager:

With a title like "Universe", they seriously need to bring back EVERYONE who has ever appeared in the games, and then add 50% more on top of that.
So I'm thinking there ought to be around 60 characters. :D
I know you can do it, Project Sora! Kid Icarus: Uprising is amazing! :la:

So since slime is in you think its fake. Slime has been one of the few Square Enix characters to have ever actually cameo'd with Mario (and has done so more than any others). And you could consider Dragon Quest partly a Nintendo series because Nintendo was the reason that DQ is even in the US. And before you say slime is nothing more than the goomba of the DQ series you shouldn't forget that slime had his own spin-off series Rocket Slime (or Slime MoriMori) which is getting a new sequel for 3DS. So there is a high potential that he could be in the new roster.

I think it's bull since it don't have Resetti in it.
Nico-Robin09 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
it'll be so cool to have zoroark xD idk it does sound like a rumor!
sinpirate2012 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
It sounds like a fan fantasy to me.
iknowlots5 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
i say yes mainly because of looking at the games these were all nintendo, sega, capcom, or square enix as well it looks like they mix-matched popular characters in both japan and in north america. the only flaw would be slime which wouldn't make much of a character but a assist trophy. also on some like for the frog the bell tolls or sin and punishment they may be trying to boost the popularity of an upcoming game for that series.

You don't need to look at the list to know it's fake. They haven't been decided by Sakurai yet. KI:U isn't out and you'd have to be both credulous and unaware about the game design process to buy these stupid "leaks."
Deviantroid Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I find most of them a possible chance of "Yes", but one like Sonic is ALREADY in the game, so why the hell did these people add him again?

I agree with you about the Ridley part, but the other two is one of the yes chance.
iknowlots5 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
sonic was technically a guest character so they are basically saying he is a returning guest character whereas snake is probably not returning from the rumored sony smash bros thing
Deviantroid Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I feel sorry more for Snake than Sonic. Snake is returning to Nintendo on Nintendo 3DS.
iknowlots5 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
oh is he but as i was saying they were both guest characters and permanent spots for all we know all the characters from different companies will not be in the game after
Deviantroid Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, we will see. ^^ I am giving it a 50-50 chance. ^^

Yeah fake it be they should have put characters people like alot
lilmissprine Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'm pretty sure this was confirmed fake a few months ago when it first came out. But I think it's pretty obviously fake because most of those characters aren't popular. You know what I mean? Look at the SSB list right now.


These are all characters that people would recognize even if they weren't into that series.

I don't even know who 90% of those characters up there are.
LukeSaturn Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
definetly fake...I mean, most of the characters don't make sense......but they are wanting to add Capcon characters btw
ValePeach Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Student General Artist
lol ridley and krystal but I wish also daisy and snaaaaaaaake!!!
Ribbedebie Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Student General Artist
I'm fairly positive this is fake but I DON'T WANT IT TO BE FAKE

King K. Rool... I miss him so much these days. D'8>
hotjazz Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
I've seen this list is obviously a fake.
VGAfanatic Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
I highly doubt King K Rool will be in. Slime and a bunch of others seem more like Assist Trophies. Honestly, I would like Sonic to come back. That is all I'll need for this game.
sheretiger Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012
What's so unrealistic about Slime, Shulk, and Ridley?
nemuli Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh, King K. Rool and Mega Man! I really hope these are in that game. But Ridley..? Can't wait *-*
