Do you have a dream character you'd like to see in Smash Bros. Ultimate, or any Smash Bros. game for that matter? If they happen to be a manga character, get ready to be disappointed. Sakurai has stated that manga characters will not be appearing in the franchise. It seems that Sakurai wants to keep the roster focused on the video game world.

“It is impossible for manga characters to join (Super Smash Bros.). While we can accept characters from other companies, we cannot, under any circumstances, take in anything and everything under the sky. That’s because (Super Smash Bros.) is a game that requires everyone’s cooperation.”
