What if Brawl followed the "One character per franchise" Rule?

So, what if brawl only had one playable character per franchise like all-stars? see here's the thing, throughout my past few months of internet browsing, I've heard some Nintendo fans saying things like: "Playstation All-stars could never have a complete roster, because sony doesn't have any good franchises!" and yadda yadda yadda, but then I'd think: "well, actually, they could easily fill the roster by adding more than one character from a single franchise, just like smash brothers does." You know, like sap-drinking lazaravic from uncharted, or qwark from ratchet and clank, heck, even daxter could run around with his bug killing gear from daxter on the psp. So then I started to think about how big the roster would be for a smash brothers game like brawl if there was only one character per franchise. As a result, I made this list of characters for brawl if such a rule were in  affect. Obviously, characters like donkey kong and wario are distinct enough in there games from the mario franchise to be unique characters.

 

(-) = character that fully represents franchise

(+) = character that adds to the representation of the franchise

(OCPF) = One Character Per Franchise

 

Characters in brawl without OCPF rule applied:
-mario

 +luigi

 +peach

 +bowser

 +yoshi

-link

 +zelda/shiek

 +ganondorf

 +toon link

-donkey kong

 +diddy kong

-fox

 +falco

 +wolf

-Pikachu

 +lucario

 +jiggly puff

 +pokemon trainer

-kirby

 +meta knight

 +king dedede

-Ike

 +marth

-ness

 +lucas

-samus

 +zero suit samus

-pit

-wario

-ice climbers

-captain olimar

-snake

-mr. game and watch

-sonic

-R.O.B

-captain falcon

(36 total)

 

Characters in brawl with OCPF rule applied:

-mario

-link

-donkey kong

-fox

-pikachu

-kirby

-Ike

-ness

-samus

-zero suit samus (this is an exception, since her and samus are essentially the same person, like how how good and evil cole are aswell)

-pit

-wario

-ice climbers

-captain olimar

-snake

-mr. game and watch

-sonic

-R.O.B

-captain falcon

(19 total)

 

characters in playstation all-stars:

-kratos

-nathan drake

-sackboy

-ratchet and clank

-good cole

-evil cole

-raiden

-jak & daxter

-big daddy

-nariko

-dante

-sly cooper

-colonel radec

-parappa the rappa

-fat princess

-sir daniel fortesque

-spike

-toro

-heiachi

-sweet tooth

-kat

-emmet graves

(22 total)

 

Possible reps for Playstation All-stars if it didn't follow the OCPF rule:

-kratos

 +athena

 +zeus

-nathan drake

 +Victor sullivan

 +Lazarevic

-sackboy

-ratchet and clank

 +clank

 +qwark

 +dr. nefarious

-good cole

 +kuo

-evil cole

 +nix

-raiden

 +snake (obviously)

 +sam

-jak & daxter

 +daxter

 +samos

 +baron praxis

 +ashelin (maybe)

 +torn (maybe)

-big daddy

-nariko

 +King bohan
 +Roach

-dante

-sly cooper

 +murray

 +bentley

 +carmelita fox

-colonel radec

 +sev chenko/rico velazques

-parappa the rappa

 +master onion

-fat princess

-sir daniel fortesque

-spike

 +specter

-heiachi

-sweet tooth

 +calypso

-kat

 +raven

-emmet graves

(47 total)

 

I see this list as a good way to counteract anyone who believes the roster couldn't be filled due to a lack of franchises on sony's consoles. As you can see, it'd be easy for playstation all stars to have a huge roster. sony however, used a restricting method, adding only one character per franchise. Nintendo could've done the same thing, and ended up with a somewhat "lacking" roster aswell. The list is also a good way to show nintendo fans that there are just about as many franchises on playstation then nintendo consoles.

 

This list definatley isn't implying that adding more than one character per franchise in a game like this is a bad thing, in fact, I actually encourage developers to do so, as I think it adds more diversity and to a roster. I just wanted to make a point to nintendo fans who think a game like this could never have a complete roster.

Yoshi falls under a category of his own, but interesting post.

Technically he is part of the Mario franchise. He gets his own game once in a blue moon, but he originated in Super Mario World.

Well I just meant going strictly by SSB's faction/series/whatever since this is about Brawl, Yoshi is given one of his one. I understand what you mean, though.

 

Of course maybe if I actually took the time to read your whole post I'd understand the placement. Whoopsie.
