Leak is easier to say and spell. I doubt there's much more to it than that.
Yeah rumor is the actual valid term. I also don't call it grinch leak but grinch hoax.
You should; especially because it is a Hoax.
16 possible slots found for DLC (counting Piranha Plant).

Hmmm, maybe we will get another season. Maybe.
There is also echoes being possible
If all DLC Fighters are unique, that would mean 3 Season Passes in total.

Aren't there like 30 something dummy spots for DLC characters elsewhere though?
Seems like they might just be filler.
Crackpot theory: In addition to one more season, we will also get separate DLC fighters available as preorder bonuses for upcoming Nintendo games.
Specifically, these seem to be World of Light slots, which could also be for new Spirit or boss battles to be added to the campaign. Though it's strange that the Plant was included, since it doesn't require to be unlocked on the map...
I'm throwing out a guess, maybe they'll sprinkle echo fighters sometime in the future along with the main season pass fighters.
if so, I'd love to see an f-zero echo or ninten
Yeah, I've had the suspicion that they might add more echo fighters myself, and either throw them in with other paid DLC or just made as free downloads.
Or, it could be made simply as a "just in case" buffer. Like, they may have only planned on one season of DLC, but they gave themselves extra room on the chance that they were asked (and found the inspiration for) that much DLC.
I always thought they would have individual DL Cs outside of the fighter base since they have that section on the DLC page for Plant (and the fact that Plant shows that they can do non-FP DLC). Granted, it could just be used for Mii DLC and Plant was the only exception.
They could just say that miscellaneous DLC are those characters that they didn't make a stage for or give extra music while the Fighter Pass is big name 3rd party or showcased franchises that they are advertising.
It would be no different from Smash 4 where Mewtwo/Roy/Lucas/Corrin are seen as miscellaneous DLC and Ryu/Cloud/Bayonetta were the Fighter Pass. Just this time they are more upfront about the new franchises coming.
