Ok, let's go.

Mario: Paper Mario - His moveset would be totally unique, and the Paper series deserves some love
Donkey Kong:
Dixie Kong - The helicopter hair offers unique move potential and she's just cool
Zelda:
King of Red Lions Vaati - Kind of overlooked villain and he could work as a magic user for a bit of variety
Pokemon:
Totodile - Though what I really mean is Gen 2 Pokemon Trainer with Totodile, Bayleef, and Typhlosion
Metroid:
Gandrayda - Obscure, but who else besides Samus isn't? Gandrayda could have a moveset based around copying moves from opponents, kind of like an edgy version of Kirby
Fire Emblem:
Anyone as long as they're a swordsman Lyn - She's an anime swordsman, sure, but Lyn is cool and she was one of the leads of the first Fire Emblem I played so I like her
Starfox:
Krystal - Obvious choice, but give her a staff and base her on Adventures more than Assault and Command and you've got another unique fighter
Kirby:
Kirby's True Form Adeleine - The whole paintbrush thing could be unique, but I honestly don't know enough about Kirby to have any real thoughts on how
Earthbound/Mother:
Poo - Because his ****ing name is Poo
Kid Icarus:
Medusa - Because she's a babe ;)
Street Fighter:
Chun Li - We've got Ryu and Ken, Chun Li is the next in line as far as I'm concerned
Castlevania:
Alucard Sonia Belmont - Let's be less predictable and go with the female vampire hunter from that Gameboy game I think isn't canon anymore
Animal Crossing:
A Gyroid Tortimer - Because why not throw an old tortoise into the mix?
Yoshi:
Kamek - I don't know, wouldn't any character count as a Mario one, technically? I think Kamek was in the Yoshi games so let's go with that geezer
F-Zero:
Dai San Gen - A total WTF choice that would confuse and amuse in equal measure
Metal Gear:
Liquid - Because Raiden is crap and Liquid has the best voice in the series
Sonic:
Big the Cat Knuckles - He's cooler than Tails and has big fists for a fighting game
Pikmin:
The President of the Freight Company - Make him get his hands dirty for once, the freeloader
Mega Man:
Dr Wily - Put him in one of his little floating golf carts and maybe he'd be something different to what else is on offer
Punch Out:
Mike Tyson - Make it happen, Nintendo
Xenoblade:
Lol, literally who cares? Pyra - Honestly, every character in this series is a blur of Japanese genericism so put anyone in, no one will care
Final Fantasy:
Tifa - Because I've heard of her
Wario Ware:
Ashley - Because she's cute
Bayonetta:
Jeanne - Seems appropriate
Splatoon:
Callie and/or Marie - Make them a pallet swap, make them a tag team that uses music to beat people to death, just have fun with them
Persona:
I don't play JRPGs Morgana - Because he's not a generic anime human
Dragon Quest:
Roxy - Because I don't care, I just want to look at pretty anime babes
Fatal Fury:
Mai Shiranui - Because see above
Banjo Kazooie:
Bottles - Just imagine it, ahaha, he'd be useless

What’s the character limit on this? Aksnfiskwjfjsk

Mario: Walu.... actually no. Probably just anyone from the RPGs

Donkey Kong:
Finally, he's here for you
It's the last member of the DK crew!
This Kong's so strong, it isn't funny
Can make a Kremling cry out for mummy
Can pick up a boulder with relative ease
Makes crushing rocks seem such a breeze
He may move slow, he can't jump high
But this Kong's one hell of a guy!


Zelda: either Tetra (specifically one that takes close to no inspiration from the fact that she’s Zelda) or skull kid. Please just give us something Sakurai.

Pokemon: someone from either gens 3 or 5, preferably a type we’ve never seen before. Krookodile was pretty popular (I know we already have 2 dark types but he’s still mainly ground.

Metroid: Uhh.... SA-X? Metroid doesn’t really have very many characters does it?

Fire Emblem: How about instead of adding characters we consolidate marth and his three clones into a single character. There will still be too many FE characters but it’s a step in the right direction.

Starfox: Probably Peppy, but only because it’s hard to really think of any character that could be much different from fox

Kirby: Now that piranha plant is in smash I guess bandana dee is fair game.

Mother: how about we focus on having more games than smash reps first?

Kid Icarus: see above

Street fighter: Chun Li

Castlevania: Dracula

Animal Crossing: Tom Nook

Yoshi: Kamek

F-Zero: Considering that Captain Falcon was already effectively an original character made for smash 64 I don’t think that theres much we can reasonably pull from.

Metal Gear: Brawl snake, complete with dummy thicc

Sonic: Tails I guess

pikmin:

Mega Man: this one is tough. There are so many different mega men to choose from, I’d say that Proto man, Bass, X, Zero, Volnutt, EXE, Star force, and even Axl are all pretty good candidates.

Punch out: Maybe Doc can just be a heavyweight echo of little Mac.

Xenoblade: I’ve only played the first one, so maybe Dunban? He’s cool I guess.

Final Fantasy:

Wario: Captain syrup

Bayonetta:

Splatoon:

Persona:

Dragon Quest: the hero from dragon quest five was originally considered, but replaced with I believe 4 due to the fact that 5 fought with a staff instead of a sword. It might be interesting to see an echo that replaced the sword moves with staff moves.

Fatal Fury:

Banjo Kazooie:

Anyone I left blank were from series that I have never or barely played.

Multi-fighter Series' include:
Mario:
I'd be open to a lot here. Piranha Plant shows that even a random enemy could be fun. I also think Paper Mario could be great too like others have mentioned, and the RPG series does need some love.... sorry Geno.

Donkey Kong: Cranky or Dixie. Part of me wanted to say Funky, but I fear he'd be a lot like DK, and these two feel like they'd have more variety. Cranky has his cane and could pull out some either retro items or potions, Dixie just feels like she deserves in, and a female character to the DK cast would add some diversity.

Zelda:
Unironically, Tingle. I believe he's the most recurring character outside of Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf, and his weirdness has a lot of areas that could be explored.

Pokemon:
Sceptile or Decidueye. I think a final form grass starter is desperately needed for the series, and I feel like either of these two would be fun.

Metroid:
Uhhhh hmm.... Metroid is hard because I feel like they've already represented the cast as much as they really can? The game focuses on Samus, so Dark Samus is easy, Zero Suit is still.... Samus, and then Ridley is the main rival, so I mean... other characters are sort of weird to think of as fighters and I don't think a moveset could really work, but if I had to pick, it'd probably be from the Hunter's cast, though, I don't know which. That or a Chozo? I dunno...

Fire Emblem:
Hector or Ephiram. Hector uses axes and would be a lot of fun, Ephiram uses spears and the same deal, both are lords, and I think both would bring some much needed variety to the FE roster in Smash.

Starfox: This one is also kinda hard. Krystal, to me, feels like she'd be the one that would play differently than the three we already have, so I guess just flesh out her assist trophy? Slippy and Peppy are nice characters, but I just don't see what they'd do that Fox and Falco haven't already. Slippy could possibly have some different weapons from Assault? I feel like his aerial movement would be similar to Falco though.

Kirby: Marx

Earthbound/Mother:
Porky or Ninten. Ninten would just round off the protags, but Porky could be interesting, and he is the series' big bad.

Kid Icarus: Viridi

Street Fighter:
M. Bison

Castlevania
: Alucard or Dracula

Animal Crossing: Tom Nook. The dude is the face of the series, and I thought it stunk that Isabelle got in before Nook. I don't even know what he'd do differently, but when I think Animal Crossing, I think Tom Nook.

Single fighter Series' include:
Yoshi:
Kamek

F-Zero:
Samurai Goroh

Metal Gear:
Raiden

Sonic:
Tails

Pikmin:
Think it'd have to be Louie, unfortunately

Mega Man:
Zero or Bass. I really like both, but Bass brings that bad guy flair.

Punch out:
I'd really like to see King Hippo

Xenoblade

Final Fantasy:

Wario Ware:
Really, any of them work.

Bayonetta

Splatoon

Persona

Dragon Quest:
Slime

Fatal Fury

Banjo Kazooie
: Mumbo or Gruntilda

If you could add one more fighter from each series to Smash bros. Would you?
I wouldn't. I'd stick to newer IPs or Nintendo IPs without representation currently. However hypothetically if I was forced to, here's my answers



Multi-fighter Series' include:
Mario - Birdo or Waluigi
Donkey Kong - Dixie Kong
Zelda - Tingle
Pokemon - Ditto
Metroid - A flying Metroid
Fire Emblem - Any character that does not use a sword or axe or lance or spell book.
Starfox - Krystal
Kirby - Marx
Earthbound/Mother - Paula
Kid Icarus - Hades
Street Fighter - M.Bison
Castlevania - Dracula
Animal Crossing - K.K. Slider

Single fighter Series' include:
Yoshi - Kamek
F-Zero - QQQ
Metal Gear - Raiden
Sonic - Tails
Pikmin - A Bulborb
Mega Man - Zero or Rush
Punch Out - Doc Louis
Xenoblade - Pyra/Mythera
Final Fantasy - Yuri/Chelinka - same character, just different skins. (from FFCC Ring of Fates)
Wario Ware - Either Mona or Kat and Ana (as an Ice Climbers like dual character)
Bayonetta - Rodin
Splatoon - Callie and Marie
Persona - Morgana
Dragon Quest - Heal Slime (from DQ Heroes 2)
Fatal Fury - Blue Mary
Banjo Kazooie - Ideally none. But if I had to pick one, I'd go with the Washing Machine transformation - Washer Banjo

Then you've got these which i'm somewhat sure don't have any available characters to be fighters but included here in case I'm mistaken:
Of cause they do. You just need to think a little outside the box.

Pac-Man - Ms Pac Man
Ice Climbers - Polar Bear
Duck Hunt - Boy with a NES Zapper gun
Wii Fit - Wii Fit balance board
Game & Watch - Snoopy (Snoopy Tennis is a Game & Watch game so it qualifies to be in Smash)
