So fans that want characters like Banjo in you have to ask yourself this question; will this character benefit Nintendo in any way? Nintendo won't just add characters in just because they're popular on the internet.

I'm against Banjo, but
Wouldn't the character being popular not be a benefit for Nintendo to begin with, since they want to, you know, sell the DLC?

Nintendo is a business. They must have chosen DLC characters that they felt would make the most money. They're not interested in advertising Persona 5, for example (unless it gets a Switch port, that is, but there's been no confirmation on that). They want to sell a character to people, so they felt Joker would be a good candidate for that.
Besides, Nintendo compiled a list. Sakurai picked from that list. So Sakurai still picked the DLC characters.

They also want to advertise current and future Nintendo games. With Joker, not only do you have Persona Q2 on Switch but Persona 5 R is heavily rumored to be released on the Switch later this year. Plus, Shin Megami Tensei has a huge history with Nintendo. Numerous Dragon Quest games have been released on Nintendo systems over the years, the Switch has several already including the upcoming Dragon Quest XI S which will be the definitive version of the game and a Dragon Quest III remake has been rumored so Erdick makes perfect sense (the datamine leak is likely him too). Steve is obvious with Minecraft (I don't want him in, but acknowledge that he's very possible).

What does Banjo have? The last Banjo game released on any system was Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts on the Xbox 360 in 2008 and the last Banjo on a Nintendo system was Banjo Pilot in 2005. Microsoft doesn't seem to care about the series. Unless the Xbox Game Pass to Swtich rumor is true and we get Rare Replay then maybe, but other than that I don't see him happening and I've wanted him in for a long time.

Nintendo didn't chose the base roster Sakurai did so nice try. Nintendo themselves are choosing the DLC roster.

They could still make an exception for Banjo. The other four DLCs can be major selling points.

No, they arent. They are giving Sakurai a list to choose from. Two very different things. Sakurai still ultimately decides.
