Honestly the only newcomer on the base roster whose inclusion wasn’t influenced by the ballot is Incineroar.
Inkling would've definitely been included with or without the Ballot (in-fact, Sakurai has never mentioned the Ballot as a reason for their inclusion). Isabelle also seems like a character that just generally has enough popularity to get in without some fan poll.

Ken was probably also not from the Ballot; just Sakurai's pick.

As far as Microsoft reps go:

Banjo:

Exciting because he hasn’t really been deconfirmed yet and has a legacy presence on old ninty hardware

Master chief:

interesting because he’s essentially MS mascot but essentially deconfirmed via tweet (unless there is another fighters pass)

Steve

Has potential because he’s from a flagship MS property with worldwide name recognition. But he’s also been de facto deconfirmed for this round of dlc via twitter

At this point I figure the Microsoft rep is either Banjo, or there's not one at all. I'm taking those tweets by Frank O' Connor and Aubrey Norris as hard deconfirms.

For those who care, Minako Arisato is now the official name for Persona 3's FeMC (who should have been the alternate variant for Makoto Yuki's Mii Costume). Though funny enough, they list Ren & Joker separately in the Sega Heroes poll.
