Say Smash Ultimate gets one more fighting game rep for their DLC, what character and franchise would be the most interesting pick?

Ryu and Terry Bogard are the posterboys for Capcom and SNK respectively, two of the most distinguished developers of fighting games. With a second Fighters Pass announced, the chances of receiving another rep for the genre isn't all that slim. What franchise with which character would you like to see represented next?

My heart wants a Mortal Kombat character, but someone from Tekken is more likely

I don't really care for traditional fighters, but of all the fighting game mascots, Sol Badguy would be by far the most interesting.

Scorpion/Sub-Zero would finally give MK vs SF some formal acknowledgement, plus at least there's some merit given how much of an impact MK/MKII were to the SNES

Scorpion, Raiden, or Sub-Zero from MK. Any of those three would bring a fresh new fighting style and aesthetic to Smash.

I’m not a fighting game fan outside Smash, so I don’t have much to offer here. But if I were somehow in charge of this decision despite my disinterest?

release voldo you cowards

Sol Badguy from Guilty Gear would certainly be interesting. Or TJ Combo from Killer Instinct.

Any Virtua Fighter character, since it's the least likely franchise to get a new entry. I know Akira is already a trophy, so any other character will do.

Most interesting would be something totally unique and off the wall like what the assist trophy Sukapon was.

But since that little guy is off the table....... Mortal Kombat would shatter the internet as nobody would expect it. Get that MK theme music blasting and everyone will lose their minds. I'd say Scorpion should be the pick over Sub Zero even though i like him more.

I think the most likely choice here would be Guilty Gear. After the two titans of the genre have got in, Tekken is a sure possibility, but I think Guilty Gear would stand out a lot more - the music, the character designs, the tie-in with the upcoming new game. It would also be the first Arc System Works crossover with Super Smash Bros., which ties into what feels like Sakurai's ambition right now.

As for the character, it'd have to be Sol Badguy.

Yoshimitsu. Reps two series at once and would fit fight into Smash.

Y'all saying Moral Kombat do realize that the series legit does not exist in Japan, right?

An MK ninja, but give them the bowser jr. treatment and give each character colour the proper name.

Capcom vs. SNK vs. Mortal Kombat

Who I would truly want? Scorpion
But I know that might be a problem due to being banned in Japan.

Nightmare
Would be my next choice, but, I wouldn’t want him in strictly because of Namco already having a rep.

So, my true option would be Sol Badguy
I feel he’s the next logical step for another fighting game character.

I wanna say MODOK from MvC3, but that’s a silly pipe dream for sure and it would never happen. But it *could* open up the door to get Phoenix Wright in Smash.

I’d say Frank or Lord Raptor from Darkstalkers would be pretty rad. I would much prefer to see Donovan though. But they would likely go with the overplayed and done to death Morrigan, or Felicia..
