It's cool, man. Sometimes this thread plays the bit and other times everyone is totally ready to shut down the reaching speculation immediately. Don't take it personally.
I've lurked in all these threads, I know how it can be during off season vs on season (so to speak) and I know no one means any harm. I felt like participating this time because we might not get a reveal for a long time after this.

What's everyone's reaction to:

- Three Houses Character
- Pokemon, and it's not the fire starter
- Pokemon and it is the fire starter
- Mario rep
- Xenoblade rep

Which is the worst case scenario for you?

I'm going to go ahead and put in my prediction that it's not Dante.

I do think he's pretty likely overall. But I'm not feeling him this time.

If there's one thing I'm eternally grateful of over the course of this entire speculation cycle, it's that Sakurai has better ideas for characters than the fans do.

The worst case for me would be Cinderace. We got a fire starter in the base roster and it'd just feel redundant even if their gimmicks are different.

Fans: *Endlessly cycle through the same speculated characters over and over*

Sakurai: "Terry Bogard."

Fans: *Express WTF for five minutes before going back to the usual circular speculation*

The only option on this list I really like is the non-Fire Starter Pokémon rep, and that’s only if we assume that means not a starter, period.

All the Mario characters I want have been Spirited.

I mean... Three fingers? Miku can be pronounced as 3—9 in Japanese.

Miku in smash.

Easy.

Which is the worst case scenario for you?
  1. Depends...
    • Edelgard or Claude: Nice!
    • Byleth or Dimitri: Meh
      • This assumes Byleth is male by default, which is probably the most likely scenario
        • If Byleth is somehow female by default, my response is upgraded to “Huh, neat”, as my hype would be hampered by her awful design
  2. Meh
  3. Meh
  4. Depends...
    1. Pauline, Toadette, or Birdo: Nice!
    2. Waluigi, Geno, etc.: Meh
  5. Depends...
    • Elma, Pyra/Mythra, or Lora: Nice!
    • Rex: Meh

-So long as it's not Byleth I'm cool. Claude or Edelgard would be aces.
-Be weird after the Spirit event
-See above
-Depends on who specifically it is, but there's way more Mario characters I'd be meh for then excited for
-Neat if Rex/Lora, excited if Elma.

If you want an aggressive prediction then that GameExplain vid is bunk and 1st party is completely off the table... and if it is one I invite someone to make a fugly ass avi of whoever it is and I will don it in shame.

- Amazing, but only if Claude or Edelgard.
- Hell yeah to Hatterene, Eiscue, Falinks, Cursola, or Dracovish.
- I sleep.
- Screaming for Vivian or Birdo.
- Elma or Lora/Jin/Haze baby!!

Why do y’all reckon they went with this reveal strategy this time around, by the way? They could easily have either revealed the character earlier or just waited until next month and shadow-dropped it, but they’re going with the “it’s a mystery!” spectacle probably less than a month from release, instead. They just want to mix it up?

Shadow drop a smash character? What kind of marketing strategy is that
