** The Wii Fit Trainer is known as "Miss Fit," both to distinguish her from the [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} other "trainer"]] and in reference to her being an UnexpectedCharacter. There's also Mr. Fit for the Male Trainer.

** Other examples coming from the 14th of July update include the first Pic of the Day, depicting a '''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}''' trophy ''hours'' before the character reveal video of Robin and Lucina (tricking people into thinking he was leaking the character reveal early), as well as a caption under Captain Falcon's Miiverse post [[YankTheDogsChain questioning whether Captain Falcon will get a new game of his own anytime soon]] (made trollier as Sakurai headed ''Kid Icarus: Uprising'' which had jokes about the same problem that in series). Not to mention that this update significantly threw a wrench in the up-until-then accurate Gematsu leak, which correctly predicted most of the newcomers ({{Unexpected Character}}s included) but incorrectly predicted that Chrom would be playable. Sakurai has had a lot of ''fun''.

** It can be argued that ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' probably would not have happened if not for Pit being an UnexpectedCharacter in ''Brawl'', since his [[VideoGame/KidIcarus franchise]] had been all but left to obscurity (at the time, it had been almost 20 years since Nintendo had done anything with the series).

*** According to Xander Mobus in the 50 Facts Extravaganza video, Sakurai originally considered on making every single character unlocked on the get-go on ''Wii U''. He decided to leave a few that still required unlocking, as he felt like fans enjoyed fighting the characters to earn the right to play as them.

** GuestFighter: Solid Snake (Brawl exclusive), Sonic (appeared in ''Brawl'', and WiiU and 3DS), Mega Man, Pac-Man, Ryu, Cloud Strife, and Bayonetta (all are WiiU and 3DS exclusive) obviously do not come from Nintendo franchises.

** A supposed screencap of Palutena csaying that Pit's original design looked like the result of "a one night stand between Missingno and a garden gnome" spread like wildfire on Tumblr shortly after the release of ''Super Smash Bros For Wii U''. It was photoshopped.

*** Chrom from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' was considered, but Sakurai decided in favor of Robin. Sakurai thought the latter was more unique and felt that Chrom probably would have been much too similar to other ''Fire Emblem'' characters already included in the game.

* UrExample: [[CommonKnowledge Contrary to popular belief]], the original ''Super Smash Bros'' for the N64 wasn't the first PlatformFighter game. That title goes to an obscure game released back in 1994 by Namco (now known as Creator/NamcoBandai) called ''VideoGame/TheOutfoxies'', though the aforementioned game and the ''SSB'' games have a lot of differing quirks. On a side note, [[HilariousInHindsight Namco Bandai just happens to be the company that Nintendo hired to develop the fourth SSB installment.]]

** There is a persistent belief that Peach, Wario, Pit, Meowth, among many other characters, were planned for inclusion in ''Smash 64''. However, outside of Bowser, Mewtwo, and Dedede, no such official source exists that states these characters were planned for inclusion.
