I'm excited about the inclusion of Diddy Kong in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Looking at the current roster though I can't help but feel that they're saving the bombshell announcements for closer to the game's release date. By bombshell announcements I mean of course Sonic. However, there are a number of other characters I'd like to see in Smash that'll probably never happen.
1.) Duke Nukem
The problems are obvious here. In a fighting game that'll be rated T for teen at the most Duke has no place. You gotta admit though it'd be pretty badass for him to tear off Bowser's head and shit down his neck.
I don't even know how this one would work. He's a little yellow man with an eating disorder. He feasts on a steady diet of yellow dots, undead, and an occasional piece of fruit when he feels guilty. Would smash turn this pixelated legend into a cannibal?
3.) Winnie the Pooh
If Kingdom Hearts could do it so can Smash. Personally, I'd put Pooh in full Mech Assault battle armor with a laser sword for good measure. He'd have a wrist flamethrower similar to Boba Fett's except for one minor difference. It shoots honey! Ha! Betcha didn't see that one coming. Anyway, this Pooh would be similar to PA's concept of Winnie being partially fused with Genova.
