For kratos, thing is there is a rumor that sony is making a sequel to battle royal for ps5. They wouldnt put kratos in smash if this rumor is true. https://www.gamesradar.com/rumour-playstation-all-stars-battle-royale-2-in-the-works-for-ps5-stars-aloy-spider-man-and-more/
Halo isn't really popular in Japan. In fact, Xbox in general sees very low sales compared to the Switch and Playstation. Although Sony owns Kratos from God of War, i assume thats the kratos the TC is thinking of, he is still more of a western character than a japanese character since the company that made it was one of Sony's Studios in the US.
Kratos is more likely but they both have relatively low chances.
Not sure about Kratos, but I think Master Chief has a shot of getting in. I could see a scenario where he was brought up in the same discussions as Banjo. If that happened, I have a hard time believing Nintendo and Microsoft wouldn't pursue that. It would be great for Microsoft because they get advertisement for Halo Infinite, and Smash gets Master Chief and the fans get another cool character. Plus I imagine between the dlc and amiibo sales both Nintendo and Microsoft would be very happy at the end of the day.
