Many people were also surprised that ''Phone Guy'' made it in, as he hadn't been referenced since the third game and until UCN was a benign character.

By far the most surprising addition though was that [[spoiler:Fredbear]], previously TheUnfought, finally made his debut.

[[folder:Super Smash Bros]]
Creator/MasahiroSakurai has [[TeasingCreator gone out of his way]] to include at least a few in every ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'':
* '''Smash 64'''
** In the first game, Ness from ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', which was a tremendous commercial failure in the West just four years prior despite its cult following.
** Captain Falcon seemed a strange choice at the time of the first game, as he is from racing series ''VideoGame/FZero'', instead of a platformer. At least ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' has a secret on-foot mode that let Fox [=McCloud=] out of the cockpit.
* '''Melee'''
** The VideoGame/{{Ice Climber}}s appearing in ''Super Smash Bros. Melee'', who had previously only ever existed in a single arcade/NES title and were only added to the roster for their gameplay potential.
** [[UsefulNotes/GameAndWatch Mr. Game & Watch]] wasn't even ''a distinct character'' before ''Melee'', and while his home series was significant to Nintendo's history, it is relatively unknown to those growing up after the 80's.
** The situation that named MarthDebutedInSmashBros; Marth might have seemed more reasonable to Japanese gamers, but [[VideoGame/FireEmblem the series he hailed from]] had [[NoExportForYou never been released outside of Japan]] prior to ''Super Smash Bros. Melee''.
** Roy made his ''[[EarlyBirdCameo character debut]]'' in ''Melee''. ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheBindingBlade'' came out a few months later. Even the Japanese were surprised. People were also shocked when in ''[=Smash for 3DS/WiiU=]'' he [[TheBusCameBack returned]] as a DLC character.
** In Adventure Mode in ''Melee'', Metal Mario's not much of a surprise, as he's also in the original. But after you've unlocked Luigi, you find yourself fighting Metal Mario ''and'' Metal Luigi.
* '''Brawl'''
** While the idea of having a playable Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Trainer was a somewhat popular choice, many wrote it off as very unlikely to happen. And even within the Trainer's moveset, while Squirtle and Charizard were popular choices (especially the latter), nobody expected Ivysaur, even if it was the most logical counterpart to the other two. Two reasons to make Ivysaur unexpected: 1) It's the middle evolution of a Pokemon. You could see Bulbasaur perhaps or Venusaur at a stretch, but Ivysaur? and 2) It's the first fully quadruped fighter in the series, and the only one in ''Brawl''.
** [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]] was confirmed as the series' first third-party character for ''Brawl''. Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog ''would'' have been a major example if Snake hadn't been revealed first, since, really, Sonic was the first third-party character anyone would expect to show up.
** [[VideoGame/RoboticOperatingBuddy R.O.B.]] wasn't even an actual character from a game. He was a gaming peripheral from the NES days that had lackluster success. Though the fact that he had previously been in ''VideoGame/MarioKart DS'' made it somewhat less surprising.
** [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit]], because at the time he belonged to an obscure and then-dead franchise.
** [[VideoGame/TheLegendofZeldaTheWindWaker Toon Link]] was also unexpected due to him being much less realistically proportioned than the other Zelda characters.
* '''Smash 4 3DS/Wii U'''
** With the reveal of the fourth game for both the [=WiiU=] and the 3DS, it was not very surprising when the Villager from ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' and VideoGame/MegaManClassic were the first new characters to be revealed. However, later on in the same day, the female trainer from ''VideoGame/WiiFit'' was revealed to much more surprise. WordOfGod was that she was chosen [[InvokedTrope because]] ''no-one'' had suggested her.
** EnsembleDarkhorse Rosalina was announced for ''Wii U/3DS''. The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series already had 4 characters announced (not counting those considered to be from their own universes), another one was unexpected, and if one did happen it wasn't expected to be her due to her relative recency compared to other possible characters.
** Many expected Charizard to return, but not as a standalone character without the Pokémon Trainer.
** Many didn't see Greninja coming despite being a very popular [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY 6th generation Pokémon]] since, unlike Lucario, Greninja didn't have a marketing push and hadn't made a proper appearance in the anime by the time of its reveal.
** Rather than have Chrom as the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' representative (who as the lead lord seemed like the most logical choice), everyone was shocked to see the game would be represented by Robin and Lucina. Chrom spends the trailer face-down defeated and Lucina's intro splash reads "Lucina Wakes Her Blade?!"
** While everyone knew that other Nintendo games with no fighter/stage reps would be acknowledged via trophies, no one expected that 3rd party games could get trophy only representation. Then a Miiverse update revealed that VideoGame/{{Rayman}} would appear in trophy form. It's also the first acknowledgement of a game series developed by a non-Japanese 3rd party developer.
** No one predicted that damn ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' Dog (paired up with one of the ducks) scrapping with Mario and friends. This one was so unexpected that it was taken as proof that the leak it was revealed in was fake.
** Dr. Mario returning for the fourth game, after not appearing in ''Brawl''.
** In the inverse of the Marth situation above, western fans were excited but not surprised to see Little Mac from the ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' series show up as a playable character. Japanese players, however, were largely baffled, since the ''Punch-Out'' series is very obscure there due to the NES and SNES games getting extremely limited releases.
** At the end of the "50 Facts" Nintendo Direct about Smash for the [=WiiU=], Mewtwo was announced as a returning character, as DLC for spring 2015. While DLC characters had been a highly plausible theory since Nintendo was entering that field, many had written Mewtwo off since he had a trophy in the 3DS version of the game, on top of his absence from ''Brawl''.
** Lucas and Roy made a return to the roster thanks to DLC too. Like Dr. Mario and Mewtwo they were unexpected thanks to having been removed from the main roster.
** Virtually no one expected [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu]] to be in the game after Capcom already had a representative in Mega Man, even when he was leaked before his official reveal.
** ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]]'' was announced in November 2015, taking ''many players'' by surprise (including those who were wishing to see him included somehow) due to Cloud's game of origin essentially being one big middle finger to Nintendo.
** Corrin from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', which [[EarlyBirdCameo wasn't even released yet outside Japan when s/he was announced]] (plus the series had five Fire Emblem representatives). It's MarthDebutedInSmashBros all over again.
** ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' entered the game by winning the Fighter Ballot. Virtually no-one expected she had a chance for being too dark and suggestive a character, but it turned out she was the most popular voted character in Europe, and apparently one of the top five in the US.[[note]]At least, of the characters that they could get the rights to. [[/note]]

* '''Ultimate'''
** First off, that ''everyone'' from the previous games is coming back. That includes Young Link. That includes Pichu. This includes Pokemon Trainer (who gets a Leaf version, no less!). That includes the Ice Climbers, who got cut for mechanic difficulties in the previous iteration. That includes all the DLC characters from said previous iteration, including third party ones. That includes ''Solid Snake'', who many thought would never get on a Smash game again.
** The Inklings weren't too unexpected since Splatoon has risen in popularity. What was unexpected that is the Inklings were how Smash Ultimate was ''announced''.
** Daisy has ascended from PaletteSwap of Peach to an Echo Character in her own right!
** '''Ridley''', he of the "too big" memes, is finally in.

* '''Fan Games'''
** The full roster for ''Super Smash Battle'' has eight characters: four of them are Smash Bros characters who have appeared in the game since the first[[note]]Mario, Link, Pikachu, and Samus[[/note]], and two are third-party characters that weren't in the games yet, but were still gaming icons[[note]]Sonic and Mega Man[[/note]]. The last two? ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' and ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', who aren't even video game characters! Its sequel fared slightly better, with choices like [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay Conker]], Franchise/{{Rayman}}, VideoGame/{{Ristar}}, Franchise/CrashBandicoot, and VideoGame/BanjoKazooie.
** ''VideoGame/SuperSmashFlash'' has a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness. There are more 3rd party characters than actual Nintendo characters in the game! This includes [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Lloyd Irving]], Manga/{{Naruto}}, [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Crono]], [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Cloud]], and [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Mr. Incredible]]. Possibly the most unexpected characters are two ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' [=OCs=]: Blade and Blue. Its sequel also showed signs of this, with newcomers such as [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Renji]], [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke, Rock Lee]], [[Franchise/DragonBall Vegeta]], [[VideoGame/TalesSeries Kratos]], [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Riku]] and three more OCs. Lee and one of the OCs got axed almost immediately, but the roster was eventually cut down to no [=OCs=] and only four anime characters (Goku, Naruto, Ichigo, and late-addition Luffy).

* During EVO 2017, Arc System Works introduced ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCrossTagBattle'', a crossover fighting game. Including ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' was inevitable. Including ''VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth'' is interesting. Including ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' is a surprise, seeing as that's a completely different company owning them. Including ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', an ''American web animation franchise'' was completely out of left field.

to:

* During EVO 2017, Arc System Works VideoGame/BlazblueCrossTagBattle:
** The fourth character showcase had curveballs from the ''[=BlazBlue=]'' and ''Under Night'' sides. While Yukiko was expected to be next in line from the ''Persona 4 Arena'' cast (as the character reveals so far had followed the order in which the Yasogami High students joined [[Characters/Persona4TheInvestigationTeam the Investigation Team]]), almost nobody saw Azrael and Gordeau being announced much earlier than other characters from their respective series.
** Es was already considered a case of this when she was revealed for ''Central Fiction'' for technically being a GuestFighter who [[CanonImmigrant made her way into the main series]] [[VisualNovel/XBlaze from a]] {{prequel}} VisualNovel, so seeing her revealed in the fifth character showcase caused some genuine surprise. Compounding this further is the fact that she's still relatively new and isn't as prominent compared to the other three revealed characters (Iron Tager, Makoto, and Nu-13).
** The showcase for the first batch of DLC (Blake notwithstanding) kicked off with Platinum the Trinity as the next ''[=BlazBlue=]'' representative. While thematically appropriate in some ways ([[VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift Platinum was originally
introduced ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCrossTagBattle'', as a crossover fighting game. Including ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' DLC character]]), this was inevitable. Including ''VideoGame/UnderNightInBirth'' is interesting. Including ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' is a surprise, seeing surprising choice for everyone given [[TheScrappy Platinum's popularity]] ([[AmericansHateTingle particularly among the Western fanbase]]), as that's more popular and requested characters from her series currently remain unaccounted for.
** The seventh character trailer for the second DLC pack has two: Aegis, who--as
a completely different company owning them. Including ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', an ''American web animation franchise'' ''Persona 3'' character--completely breaks the order the previous trailers had been going by with the ''Persona 4'' side (where it was completely out mainly the Investigation Team in order of left field.joining/awakening their Personas), and Jubei, who was only released in ''Central Fiction''--after nearly a decade's worth of fan demand that he be PromotedToPlayable--less than a year before this game's release (in fact, his debut trailer even aired ''alongside'' this game's teaser trailer).
** Several of the data-mined characters count. [[spoiler:To start things off, very few fans expected Izayoi (aka an alternate form for Tsubaki Yayoi) to be in the game instead of the original Tsubaki Yayoi herself. Mika can also come across as this given how she was not part of the original cast of ''Under Night In-Birth''. In addition, some fans didn't expect Labrys to be in the game since some fans thought ASW was only including characters from the mainline ''Persona'' games--though this is countered by Labrys making her formal debut in the original ''Persona 4 Arena''; many fans figured she had a shot at being included, just not a better one than various other members of the ''Persona 4'' and ''Persona 3'' casts.]]
