I’d like to see Doom Guy in Smash, he’s definitely got more Nintendo history than some of the characters that have made it in (hasn’t every Doom game been available on a Nintendo console at this point?). Sure he’s from a game where your goal is to kill demons in bloody, brutal, violent ways...but that’s true for Bayonetta so I don’t see content from the series a character comes from as being a barrier for them to make it in. If they see using a shotgun as too much there’s plenty of weapons in Doom that would fit like the plasma rifle and BFG.
The real barrier to him getting in though is his popularity in Japan. Is Doom big over there? Not impossible that they wouldn’t put in a character that would only be popular with Western audiences but pretty much every character chosen for Smash is a character designed to keep everyone happy.
