** GuestFighter: Snake (Brawl exclusive), Sonic (appeared in ''Brawl'', and WiiU and 3DS), Mega Man, Pac-Man, Ryu, Cloud, and Bayonetta (all are WiiU and 3DS exclusive) obviously do not come from Nintendo franchises.
** MarthDebutedInSmashBros: As well as Lucas and many {{Assist Character}}s such as Starfy. [[InvertedTrope Inverted in the case of fellow series character Roy]], as he really ''did'' debut in ''Smash Bros.'' [[EarlyBirdCameo before the release of his own game]].

** Apart from Nintendo's "big three" franchises (''Mario'', ''Zelda'' and ''Pokémon''), ''Kirby'' was heavily represented in ''Brawl'', and joined ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' and ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'' in being strongly represented in the fourth game. These franchises were given three or more playable characters, along with a lot of focus in the game's other modes and features, giving them more focus than proven classics such as ''Donkey Kong''. AuthorAppeal seems to be in play, as [[Creator/MasahiroSakurai Sakurai]] created the ''Kirby'' series and ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', and is a self-professed ''Fire Emblem'' fan. In particular, ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' has 6 representatives in ''3DS/Wii U'', on par with the significantly bigger ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise and second only to ''Mario''. It's gotten to the point that even Sakurai was hesitant to bring it up to that number (Nintendo forced him to include Corrin to market Fire Emblem Fates just before its international release).

*** Franchise/JamesBond [[https://tcrf.net/Prerelease:Super_Smash_Bros._Melee#Cut_Characters was briefly considered to be playable]] to presumably follow up on the success of ''Goldeneye'', but the use of firearms and inevitable licensing nightmares got him swiftly dropped. All that remains of this idea is the Motion-Sensor Bomb's inclusion as an item, and even then, the item's origin is not listed as ''Goldeneye''.

*** According to Yuji Naka, Sonic would have made his ''Smash Bros.'' debut here instead of in ''Brawl''[[note]]The game was being developed towards the end of Creator/{{Sega}}'s days as a business rival, and the first Sega game to be released on a Nintendo console, ''Sonic Adventure 2: Battle'', was released just one month after ''Melee'' in Japan[[/note]], but by the time Sakurai was able to get in contact with Sega to ask permission, the game was too far along in development.

** Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion XL. This game which features several characters from Cartoon Network-exclusive shows was so blatant in copying the Smash Bros formula, specifically ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl'', that Smash fans will gladly make fun of it for being a shameless copycat/ripoff while Cartoon Network fans will defend it as being better than Super Smash Bros. in some ways.
