  3. If Ryu Hayabusa is the 5th character, I want him to be a stance character

That's like the only major fighting game character archetype that we are missing in Smash Bros, so I'm hoping that Hayabusa gets a unique Shield + B special that have him sheathe or draw his sword. If drawn, he has sword attacks and if sheathed, he has his unarmed combat style, paying homage to both Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive. Hey, if Inkling can get a "5th special", so could other characters.

What is Pokémon Trainer?

For real, though, that'd be cool.

That sounds pretty awesome. I like the idea of switching between NG and DoA inspired movesets.

3 characters sharing the same slot, representing the "tag team" archetype ^^; ?

Zelda and Sheik used to be a stance character until being separated though. The main difference is that it was essentially different characters, not the same character changing movesets on the fly.

It would also reach more people, as some [old] gamers might have known Ryu since the NES days, while younger ones might have known him since DoA. You can also argue that some players might have known Ryu since his playable cameo in the Warriors Orochi series :P

It's like seeing Guy, Cody, Hugo, Poison, Abigail and Lucia in the Street Fighter: some might know them from Final Fight, while others might not, seeing them as actual SF characters instead.

Are the Ice Climbers a joke to you bro?

And of course, the Pokemon team is the stance "character" of Smash. Why would you think otherwise?

As for Hayabusa being one? Meh. Most people that know and want Hayabusa, request him for his NG legacy; of which he has 9 games to pull from (more if you count the expansions). The most DOA needs is his costume, and even that is debatable as I'm sure most will prefer the classic blue gi to go along with the black falcon armor; his iconic designs.

Hell, if any DLC character was going to be made into a stance switching character; it would probably be Dante. Maybe not in regards to style switching, but more in him being able to swap between sword and gauntlet mode.

But Koei Tecmo has a beef with Capcom. Think they will allow Ryu in smash?

This is also true but in this specific case, I don't think Koei would care as they're not actually working with Capcom.

That's exactly what I thought months ago when people speculating about him.
