I was going to add Snake and/or Sonic, because they were considered for Melee in the earlier stages, but never made it completely through. Even with mugshots, it never felt legitimate to me with either of them being there. I felt that any other characters would be too far of a stretch. King Dedede was planned for Melee as a replacement for Marth if Sakurai couldn't get the rights, but that didn't feel like a special enough inclusion. I could have easily gone with Mach Rider, but I felt even that was too obscure of a single character addition to an almost 15-year old game. So I stuck with Giga Bowser only, who has the data needed to be selected in the original Melee, so I feel like Nintendo would totally leave him on the select screen in a Melee 3D just a special little something. My thoughts revolved around the idea that Nintendo would re-release Melee on the 3DS to appeal to competitive Smash Bros. players, which Sakurai is totally aware that there are people who only play Melee. I am definitely not one of those people, but Melee is still one of my favorite games ever.
