  3. Why does Midna deserve a spot over any other one-off Zelda character?

What about Midna makes her deserve a spot? The only two Zelda characters who I believe need reps now are Impa and Tetra/Toon Zelda, because at least they are recurring.

Tingle also arguably deserves a spot. Including his spin off games he has appeared the same amount of times as Impa.

She doesn't. Midna is arguably the most popular one-off character in the series and popularity can get characters in, so she is a "maybe", at least when you combine her with Wolf Link.

The most "deserving" Zelda character at this point would be Tingle. He's a memorable recurring character and even got his own game series. Problem is that he is very unpopular in the West, where Nintendo probably won't consider him as a fighter for that reason alone. He also has been absent from the Zelda series since The Minish Cap for that reason.

Right now I would settle for (Skyward Sword) Impa as an Echo Fighter of Sheik. That's the only shot Zelda really has at a newcomer in Ultimate.

Is she considered loli? She is more like a cat thing.

Popularity, basically. Isn't that enough? I mean, that's all Geno has. :P

Impa and Tingle are arguably not as popular as Midna. So why go for characters that are less popular, just because they have minor roles in more titles?

That's not to say Midna is the most popular one-off anyway; but I think she and Skull Kid are pretty close to make one over the other justified. (No, the skull kids in twilight princess and ocarina don't really count and might not even be the same person. >_>)

Let's drop the term "deserve". Any character that deserves anything is already in this game. Side-reps for franchises don't deserve anything at all. Link represents the Zelda franchise. The Zelda franchise is thereby already covered. Anything else we get and have gotten is a bonus. So no Zelda character they could add deserves a spot any less or any more.

I agree with most of this, except Impa and maybe Toon Zelda should also be considered.

I don't generally care about "deserving", especially since that ain't really up to us to decide at the end of the day. I just want Midna. I've wanted Midna since Brawl, and like everyone on my most wanted list (Krystal, Phoenix Wright, Lyn/Hector... ) I will continue to want them 'till they get in and ain't nothing gonna stop me.

Not even perma deconfirmations. Forever is a pretty long time, certainly long enough for the powers that be to change their minds. I will be patient about this if I must, darn it!

Personally I think it doesn't matter how many games they've been in as long as they are in important character and popular, and Midna is the most popular side character from the series.
However if they did add Tetra or Impa while Zelda fans will be glad to have another character they will also be upset because they want someone who is not part of the triforce trio and they want them to have a unique moveset. While Impa could be unique there is an extremely small amount she would get considered to be anything other than a Sheik echo, which makes sense since she trained Sheik
