Follow TV Tropes
I mean, that's never been made a hard rule, to the best of my knowledge. Echoes have tended to arise from within their respective franchise, yes, but that's largely because the character they're based as an Echo happened to be from the same franchise. I don't see why Sakurai would restrict it on that basis alone.
So this entire thread's existence is based on the apparent leaks recently? What happens when the leaks are proven fake?
Then we wait for other leaks to come up and see if they're true or false.
So in other words this entire thread is talking leaks? We weren't talking about that in the non-spoiler one?

Well, this one is to be more focused on them.
Feels a tad silly.
I feel like we should rename the thread about leaks instead of spoilers.
I hesitate to use the term 'leak' when 'rumour' tends to be more accurate for the most part.
Fine, rumor. Whatever is more accurate vocabulary
Spoilers sounds like something got revealed instead of speculating
I think it could be worthwhile to rename the thread and focus it on leaks and the like, if only to prevent the main thread from being derailed anytime someone online says 'I saw the demo and Mario is in Smash' or whathaveyou. Rumours is a bit vague, though. Agreed that spoilers is misleading.
I saw the demo and MARIO is in SMASH!
Yeah right. I don't see why Sakurai would waste time for a pointless echo of Dr. Mario — he's not even a different character. What would his moveset be? Luigi already offers a more distinct, lighter version of Dr. Mario's playstyle anyway.
I'd have to go back and check... but heck, isn't that shot of Isabelle taken directly from Animal Crossing New Leaf? And I don't understand why the Chorus Kids would be done in that style rather than an actual render in the game's engine.
This honestly seems like one random person's wishlist wrapped in in the guise of a "leak." This is even less convincing than some of the random "my uncle works at Nintendo" posts from That Imageboard.
Have you forgotten about Mr Game & Watch? It's not out of the realm of possibility of having another 2D based character.
No, I hadn't, but G&W is specifically two-dimensional to represent his age. Unless being two-dimensional is an important part of a character's gimmick (e.g. Paper Mario), I would expect all further characters to be three dimensional.
Besides, it doesn't change the fact that the pics shown are different resolutions, different sizes, and the "question mark" there makes no sense (if you were going to leak, leak the whole thing). This just feels so fake to me.
Supposedly there is another image but with Decidueye as the ? mark. However, this conflicts with another more reliable leaker that specifically said that there is a Pokemon spot but not Decidueye.
Edit: Nevermind. The Decidueye image was from a copycat account.

I actually was to post that, but then I remembered the background incosistency in it and decided not to.
Also, there's another posted that claims to be the character behind the ? mark...but even so I doubt it unless the original leaker comes ahead and shows it.
RE: Why this thread exists: We had a similar thread for 4 back before it was released (last I checked, which was weeks ago, it was locked), but at that time I think there were more convincing leaks and the discussion about them was overtaking the main thread and drowning out actual news and updates. It also serves as a good place talk about possible spoilers and leaks without annoying certain posters/lurkers of the main thread (case in point, I wasn't perusing the main thread before the last Direct started and missed the accident that gave away Castlevania's inclusion before it aired. If I saw it, it would've made the reveal have less impact).
While the thread may have been started by a leak that was proven fake, it does have a purpose and isn't meant to be used just for that one leak.
My Uncle works at SEGA and he tells me that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Dreamcast 2 will have 1000 playable characters and perfect competitive balance
I didn't know that, but makes it worth the error xD

Clearly fake. Uncle isn't a proper noun and shouldn't be capitalized.
Uncle is a proper noun. They guy's name is My Uncle.
My dad Mr Nintendo himself, and he says the avatar from Act Raiser will be the surprise reveal at the next direct. The direct will air three hours ago.
My dad's dad's dad's corpse said that everyone who has ever existed and will exist in all of creation will be in Smash Bros. "Everyone is here."
"Except Waluigi. He's an Assist Trophy. WHERE HE BELONGS."
dont believe what you've read on 4chan
