Everyone's leaning towards Puyo Puyo, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Fantasy Zone (Opa-Opa.) He does have that toy in his collection, since some people like to use that as a reference point for whatever reason. Fantasy Zone was one of Sega's earliest successes in the arcade, and Opa-Opa was their original mascot before they hit the home console market. Alex Kidd didn't take over as mascot until the Mega Drive. I wouldn't mind being able to control a sentient rocket ship, that would at least kill the whole male / female character ratio argument that goes on here.

I could see Sega willing to use one of these two for another DLC representative if it isn't going to be anybody from their more recent outings. Smash likes to add mascot characters from time to time; even though they've fallen off of the map, they're still some of the earliest video game mascots of our time so I would not rule it out (but most likely not happening.)

Opa-Opa wouldn't be able to grab items, tho.
I am pretty sure I know what to do now.

It has wings which can operate like hands. I think they could make it work in the same way it was able to equip and use items in Sega All-Stars Racing. It doesn't have to make the most sense on the surface, they're pretty good innovators when it comes to the gameplay mechanics.
