I'd take Toad over Junior any day with seniority and mainstream playability as my reasoning, but with Junior's mainstream presence surging to an almost ridiculous level, he may be the choice between the two. Especially since there are three Mario heroes and only one villain as it stands.

I picked 50 characters in order to do it in a sort of 5 max, 10 series thing. You know how Brawl did it by nine vertical rows of four, right? Well, my idea was the same basic thing, but instead ten rows of five for an even 50, essentially. So the series cap is 5 for this thread.
Personally, I think the perfect SSB roster should've always just been limted to the protagonist from each series, with the supporting cast filling out the Assists, Boss Stages, Trophies and Stickers. This would've easily limited the stupid debates over who gets to be in over who, and would've balanced the series representation a lot more.
50 character slots seem too much. I think a 9x5 grid is more reasonable so there would be 44 character slots plus one random slot. Also, does anyone really want the forbidden seven in SSB4? I mean, its very likely that third-party characters won't be returning so, we are down to 33 slots. So add the forbidden seven and we have 39 slots. Huh? 33 + 7 = 39? Well, Toon Zelda and Toon Sheik count as one, right? So... but Plusle & Minun won't be in SSB4 so we are down to 38 slots. Lucario and Ike won't be returning because they are popular at the time Brawl were being announced... so we get their replacements who happen to be popular at the time SSB4 is announced. We are still at 38 here. Newcomers include Krystal, Little Mac, Louie, Balloon Fighter, Balloon Kid, and Mach Rider are added, unfortunately most of them are clones. That's 44 characters right there. And SSB4 is how Brawl was supposed to be before third-party characters got involved, just like how Brawl is how Melee was supposed to be if there was no time constraints. *sigh* Well, at least Wario has two movesets this time and most fans are happy they get Roy, Dr. Mario, and Mewtwo back in addition to Krystal, Little Mac, and Balloon Fighter.
I think everyone can agree Stafy is a character that should've been in there. I mean he's got everything for him, a potential moveset, popularity, a growing franchise. The only reason they probably didn't put him in there is because he's Japan only... And I spit on that!
How about having "Orange star Army" as the Nintendo wars character. Te Orange star army has been the good guys of the Wars series since the Famicon days this character consist of Andy, Samy and Max ridding a Mid Tank. One in the Cockpit being the leading CO and the other two outside operating the machine guns and other weaponry (mostly used for A moves)and their moves are:
B Main cannon fire, they fire the main canon, if you hold be you can aim 180 degrees, once released
B forward Victory march, a quick dash forward crushing your opponents, if you hold B you can charge it
B Up Homing You fire a guided missile at you enemies, you can also guide it so to hit your tank for help recovering (Like Ness and Lucas Pk Thunder)
B Down Co change, here comes the interesting part pressing B down you do co Change this your movements don't change but your stats do: Andy in the lead: your tank recovers energy little by little(like 1 hp every 2 seconds), but your attacks get weaker Max in the lead: Your attacks get stronger, but your speed dramatically decreases. Sami in the Lead: your speed increases exponentially but your defense decreases. Alternating between the three CO´s is the key to win
Final Smash (Co Power) Rachel sends 4 missiles to help the army , you can control the aim of were the missiles might hit (Beware as they can hit you even if they don't harm you)

The original SSB was made up of main protagonists and two supporting. (Three if you count Yoshi). Melee began to add supporting characters and obscurities. Brawl's just continuing that because they already covered the big leads.
The roster beta is near perfect. It covers who we should have gotten and it's not too oversized or over fanserviced. For once, Koopaul, well done.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
