This list has absolutely no logic to any of it. Why would Spyro be chosen over Crash, a character far more popular owned by the same company? Why would Sakurai ever put in two characters that, like @Truthboi says, is only known to normies as "pokemon ripoff"? Why would he put in a character that's already an assist trophy just to grant a single person's dying wish? Why pick an indie character from a game that practically lost all of its attention as soon as Cuphead came out? Why do these people still think that a character owned by DISNEY even remotely has a chance? The only character here that even remotely has a chance is Dante, and I doubt he even thought about that when he made this.
If he wants to be 50/50, why couldn't he make choices that actually seems logical?
Why not a Sword and Shield pokemon, since Nintendo would certainly want to promote that game? Why not Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, considering that Tecmo-Koei has good enough relations with Nintendo to the point where they even own one of their IPs (Fatal Frame)? Why not Heihachi from Tekken? after all, they were planning on putting him in the last Smash title.
Why do these people have such shallow ideas on who can get in
