Nairo stated in addition to Lloyd, all of his dream Smash fighters had currently been added—Snake, King K. Rool, and Banjo-Kazooie.

If Mr.R had to select an individual in addition to Lloyd, he’d select Hector from Fire Emblem 7 (recognized as Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, initially released as just Fire Emblem for the Game Boy Advance in North America.)
“I truly like [Hector’s] character style and his character, or Lyn from Fire Emblem 7, which is likely not going to come about for the reason that she’s an Help Trophy currently. But these 3 characters would be truly great,” Mr.R stated.
