    The one that they thought was Palutena or Bayonetta looks like Shulk to me, due to the ring accompanying him, being part of the Monado sword.

    Characters that aren’t going to be in the final game of the series smash ultimate

    First banjo kazooie Sadly it’s impossible unless Nintendo wants to pay millions of dollars to Microsoft
    Banjo kazooie was made 100% by rare and was imported on the Nintendo 64 while donkey 64 and donkey Kong country was made by rare and Nintendo
    Rare was bought by Microsoft
    This is why banjo kazooie is on xbox live arcade and not virtual console while donkey kong 64 is on virtual console but not xbox live arcade
    Next is sans
    The only relatable thing about undertale and Nintendo is that the composer of the music of the mother series is toby fox
    The reason why there’s so many earthbound references
    Next is waluigi
    He’s not a major character
    That’s it
    Finally decidui
    Game Freak knows
    Sun and moon suck
    Congratulations someone isn’t stupid
    Toby fox and mother aren’t connected
    At all
    Unless you count hacks

    • DarkRed

    I think the character at 3:38 is the top of Ness' hat and the circle below samus at 5:48 is kirby

  • Monster Conrad
    Monster Conrad 8 months ago

    I disagree with your presumption of the outline being just normal Bowser. Now, there is no real denying that it is a variant of him, but I think that it is more specifically Dry Bowser based on the arms sticking out to the sides. Not to mention that with a normal skeleton you could see all the bones and the fire outlining them, but with Bowser, he has a huge shell blocking all the light from the fire behind him, but that's not the case with his outstretched arms. You can clearly see right through them. I honestly believe that they were specifically putting Dry Bowser there instead of normal Bowser. Now I could easily be wrong, but this is just what I think

  • Gaming Ninja
    Gaming Ninja 8 months ago

    2:34 That looks to me like Luigi's hat, 4:22 that honestly looks like Cappy (minus the Mariostache) on top of a piranha plant with it's mouth open or just a chili pepper (#CappyForSma5h)

    I wonder since "Captain Falcon" looks like Pikachu, if this could be Evee? The last one "Jiggly Puff" would be cool but could it be Pac Man? Also, the one next to DK i actually believe it could be yoshi, i surely hope he does make a comeback, but even if not, we might see DLC for this game and have new characters introduced anyway. There are some characters which are absolutely 100% the characters you mentioned like Samus, DK, and Bowser!

  • Joey Nordman
    Joey Nordman 9 months ago

  • Sharky Malarky
    Sharky Malarky 9 months ago

    My theory:
    All characters from Wii u/3DS including
    some crossovers could be out
    And pretty much waluigi could be in this cause y not?
    Also thats little Mac beside samus

  • Sharky Malarky

  • Nick Borkenhagen
    Nick Borkenhagen 9 months ago

    I think the character you think is falcon is kamek with his broom. It makes sense because hes floating and the thing on the ground looks like the end of a broom. (kamek is the witch from mario)

  • Corrupted Guy
    Corrupted Guy 10 months ago

    Maybe in between pikachu and jigglypuff was BOTW Zelda?

    • Introverbal
      Introverbal 9 months ago

      There is no doubt in my mind that between Pikachu and Jigglypuff is Zelda. Thats totally her.

  • Corrupted Guy
    Corrupted Guy 10 months ago

  • Panic! ᖴᗩᑎ
    Panic! ᖴᗩᑎ 10 months ago

    I think the thing on the left of Samus might be Alola Pickachu because it floats on its tail, maybe there's a Pickachu and Alola Pickachu. Edit. IF SHEIK IS NOT IN THE GAME I WILL GO AND DIE!!!!!!
