  1. How is Pit on here, but not Spyro? Last I heard, everyone HATED the last Kid Icarus game. And the 3D effects made everyone sick. And nobody even knows who Pit is.

  2. You guys need to make a part 2 of this u missed some characters that shoulda been in this

  3. With banjo being in smash, perhaps it’s time for banjo to make a comeback too. I’d also like to see Earthworm Jim return too
