Strong chance:
Bandana Waddle Dee
Crash Bandicoot
Gen 8 Pokemon
Geno
Paper Mario
Phoenix Wright
Rayman
Ryu Hayabusa

Could happen:
2B
Dante
Sol Badguy
Sora
Waluigi

Unlikely:
Arle Nadja
Doomslayer
Lara Croft
Lloyd Irving
Minecraft Steve
Travis Touchdown

So improbable they aren't worth discussing:
KOS-MOS
Reimu Hakurei
Saber (Fate)
Shantae
Tracer

Already deconfirmed:
Rex

EDIT: Travis and Doomguy may have been deconfirmed by their own creators/studio, but Rex is the only one listed who has had a legitimate consolation prize post-launch so he's pretty much deconfirmed.

The Smash exclusivity rule is not an actual thing.

Rayman's in Brawlhalla too, btw.
Plus Rayman is a fully-fledged character, while Lara is only a skin

I’m 99.9% Sure They’re In:
Rex, Gen 8 Pokemon

Good Chance:
2B, Crash, Dante, Ryu Hayabusa, Sol Badguy

Could Happen:
Arle, Geno, Lloyd/Yuri, Master Chief, Steve, Paper Mario, Phoenix Wright, Travis Touchdown, Rayman (Because of the rumors)

Probably Not:
Bandana Waddle Dee, Lara Croft, Reimu, Shantae, Sora

Nope:
KOS-MOS, Saber, Waluigi

Sadly Deconfirmed, Even Though I Want Them:
Tracer, Doom Slayer

I’ll touch on some of the notable ones.

With Min-Min/Arms in the game now, I think all of the Nintendo characters from here on out will be Switch era characters. Rex & a Sw/Sh Pokemon are the biggest Switch characters not in yet. I feel they’re inevitable. I believe we’ll be getting 4 more characters after FP2, so they might not show up until then but we’ll get them.

I think 2B is likelier than people think. Nier’s been one of the most popular games this gen, particularly one of the most popular Japanese games. Square is actively trying to push that series & I can see them offering 2B to Nintendo. Nintendo would accept because she’s a popular character that would garner a lot of attention. Sakurai’s already a big Nier fan too. He also recently meet up with series creator Yoko Taro, who doesn’t seem like the most sociable person, so that could’ve been for business.

Dante also has a lot going for him. Like Itsuno’s statement about DMC having to be on Switch first & then the trilogy coming to Switch shortly after. Capcom is looking to promote the DMC series & Smash would be a great place for that. Capcom has such a beloved stable of IPs that I’d be shocked if Nintendo doesn’t get another one of their characters.

Hayabusa & Sol are from two of the biggest Japanese companies not in Smash yet. Those two companies have been pretty supportive of the Switch too. I can see them both getting characters to strengthen their relationship with Nintendo. Arc Sys (Sol) even has spirits in the game already.

Rayman has a decent amount of rumors floating around him right now. If he didn’t have that, I wouldn’t have him that high. I want Rayman, but Ubisoft has been getting the shaft in Smash since 2014 despite clearly wanting Rayman playable. I’ll be pleasantly shocked if Rayman does get in.

I want Sora, but it’s not looking good after Imran’s comments. There’s a chance that was outdated info though.

Tracer & Doom Slayer were straight up deconfirmed by their developers. I don’t really see a way that those statements could be lies either, they’re pretty definitive.

Why don’t you think Crash Has a shot?
Ranticoot's list is mostly logical. He dumped western characters, assist trophies,and doujin game characters into Nope, with the lone exception being Steve (who was heavily speculated and belongs to a company with a character already in Smash, and even he is a slim chance), so Crash is probably in that category because he's western.
not that I can speak for him, but it's just a guess

Speaking of his list it's pretty much right in all regards, Geno and Lloyd are most likely atm by virtue of missing mii costumes and Sakurai going out of his way to specifically highlight these two characters in interviews ( https://sourcegaming.info/2016/02/21/nintendodream3/ )
