The Smash Bros. roster has remained decidedly finite when it comes to the denizens of Hyrule. We’ve had Link, both Toon and Young, Zelda and Sheik who’ve only recently been split into separate fighters and Ganondorf. That’s it. With so many characters to choose from, it’s strange how most of the cast are resigned to trophies or at best, assists. Surely its time for a fresh Hyrulean Newcomer?
With other games like Fire Emblem and Pokémon getting so much representation in the latest titles, wouldn’t it be great to see some of Zelda’s finest hurling Star Rods and Pokeballs alongside the likes of Samus and Bowser? Granted, the series mainstays are always present, but is that all we need? We’ve had Midna and Ghirahim as assist trophies, but wouldn’t they have made awesome playable characters? From Breath of the Wild, any of the champions would make fine additions, Sidon atleast needs to swoop in as an assist trophy.
But what do you think? Who would your dream Zelda character be to play as in the next Smash Bros? Zant? Vaati? BEEDLE?! Let us know in the comments below!
