Random Time! Hideki Kamiya Tweets out poll asking which of his characters fans would like in Smash Bros.

Hideki Kamiya has suddently created a Twitter poll asking which of his characters would be the most likely to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game. The current options are Dante (from Devil May Cry), Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu (Okami), and Wonder Red (The Wonderful 101). 

It is unknown if this poll will have any sort of impact, as the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters have allegedly already been chosen. With that said, it is still fun to see what a general audience may pick, and Kamiya is likely just trying to gauge fan interest. We will see if any of these characters make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. in the future!

Please point out on the doll where the bad man touched you.

Relax man, Joker is a cool character from a super popular title and it's a great series. If anything, it is a side advertisement for SMT as a whole and makes sense

If you don't choose Ammy you are incorrect.

All of them would fit right in! But if I had to choose (in order) it would be: Ammy, Joe, Red and Dante

Amaterasu for sure. But although it might not be a Kamiya character, I'd love to see 2B in Smash, as she's another Platinum Games character who'd make a fantastic addition to Smash (and with her I'd have nearly all my waifus in one game).

Anyone who votes for Dante deserves a slap in the face. He shouldn't be there, then again, Joker shouldn't be a DLC character, but he disgracefully will be.

Viewtiful Joe gets my vote out of the options.

Seriously? People are allowed to like whatever characters they want. 'Disgraceful' that a character you don't personally like is in the game?

Joe is the best IMO but I'd accept the Wonderful 101

Amaterasu! I'd love it if she was in Smash!

And Dante... ugh... well he's more qualified than Joker I guess... which isn't saying much.

Regarding your comment on Dante, how is he qualified? Please say you're not going to mention Project X Zone. I feel 3rd party characters need to have had proper history on Nintendo hardware, both handheld and console to qualify for a place in Super Smash Bros. It's a mockery that Joker is in there when he has no history, is from a franchise that's exclusive to Sony, excluding spin-offs. Then you look at other characters , both 1st and 3rd party that have a tonne of history on Nintendo platforms and they can't get a look-in. Dante's inclusion would be further rubbing it further in peoples faces were it to happen. Devil May Cry 5 is coming out early next year, no sign of a Switch version, don't think it could handle it, even with a tonne of dumbing it down. The series itself has no history with Nintendo either.

Yes I mean Project X Zone... which is why I said it didn't say much about Joker's qualifications, when that makes Dante more qualified. Seriously, why are you lecturing me about this, I'm agreeing with you on this.

Sorry, I don't mean to lecture you.

Unrelated, but the loading screen “tip” about Shiek refers to Shiek as a “her”....but isn’t Shiek supposed to be a “he” (albeit Zelda disguised as a guy).

To be fair, I don't think Nintendo cares about OOT spoilers since it came out 20 years ago and even Melee allowed for you to transform from Zelda into Sheik.

Unless Nintendo intended for Sheik to be considered a trans character...which I highly doubt.

A girl disguised as a guy isn’t trans.
I just thought in Zelda canon when referring to Shiek that male pronouns were used but it seems not the case. I was just curious if this had been a typo or not. Funnily enough when I played OoT, I did not for a second think Shiek was a guy. Always looked like a girl to me back then.

He had to remove the poll because a lot of people were getting nasty towards him in the comments and someone went as far as to make a joke about wanting to drop a third atom bomb on Japan. :| I don't blame him at all for his extremely angry behavior because of the stuff he has to deal with and I'm surprised he did this at all. Still, any of them would be fine with me except Dante, since he really doesn't represent Nintendo at all and the only thing he has going for him is that he's a good rival for Bayonetta. If we get a capcom action guy, I'd rather it be Strider

Wonder Red easy. The others all already had their chance to be in fighting games.
