Where's all the people begging at their knees for ten additional Minecraft and Pac-Man "reps"?

It only matters if it's Zelda.
I have over 700 hours in Dragon Quest 11.
And now 100 hours in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.

This in a nutshell.

Say you want a new Animal Crossing fighter from example you'll get "Villager already encompasses the series well" with "Isabelle is unnecessary" thrown in a number of times, but just look at the numbers that series has pulled and by their logic there should be at least 3 more fighters.
It's "fighters" not "reps"

IMO the problem with wanting extra Minecraft and PAC-MAN reps is... who exactly are they going to pick? PAC-MAN could have the Ghosts and Ms. PAC-MAN but after that, I'm drawing a blank (granted, I've only played the first PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN). Even the Spirits basically only have the Mother Fairy from PAC-LAND. I saw a cool moveset for Alex, so they could split Alex from Steve or give that moveset to Jesse from Minecraft: Story Mode, but other than that and maybe a Creeper, I have no idea.

I think Animal Crossing has it better, but you still need to think outside of the box for Tom Nook, K.K., Resetti, etc. It could work, but that's probably why people don't ask for AC that much (that and it's too cAsUaL for Scrimblo Bimblo fans and/or people who complain endlessly about other series like Zelda).
Not changing this part until Saki Amamiya (or Isa Jo) gets into Smash as a playable character

And Donkey Kong
And Metroid, by the fandom's exaggerated perspective of how big Metroid is (keep in mind that a lot of people act like it's near Zelda's level despite the past several games bombing and it never having been a seller in Japan).

On top of that, a lot of the fandom bashed Isabelle after her reveal, even though Animal Crossing is an undeniably big series (even before New Horizons came in and beat everything but MK8).

Kirby's unique in that, whether it gets new characters or not, people will complain about Sakurai bias.

If it gets new ones, it's Sakurai being biased towards his own series. If it doesn't get any new ones, it's Sakurai being biased towards HIS Kirby games and rejecting the ones he didn't make.

Honestly as a Kirby fan I’m fine with how it’s represented already it already has the three musketeers and while a fourth character (such as Marx or bandanna dee) would be nice it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t get a fourth character, my only real issue is the lack of modern Kirby content vs classic Kirby content which I chalk up to sakurai’s bias towards the Kirby games he worked on,
I don't like flies, they're always rubbing their hands together as if they're constantly plotting something evil.
