John Wick, Banjo Kazooie, Crash Bandicoot? The internet is going crazy with new character guesses for tomorrow's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate E3 reveal

The only character not on the table at this point is Waluigi

We know that Nintendo is planning to reveal their latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character on the first official day of E3 2019, but with more than 70 fighters already on the roster, (both from within and without the world of Nintendo) it seems just about anyone from the world of gaming could be coming.

It should come as little surprise that the internet is passing the time by offering up wish list picks, some of which are comically over the top and ridiculous in nature. With over 20 thousand tweets as of the writing of this, "#SmashDLC" is tending hard and so we thought we'd round up some of our favorite findings to share.

Far and away the most popular name(s) in recent weeks has been Banjo Kazooie. The pair of now-iconic characters seem to be a perfect fit for the Smash universe, and we even cranked out an article detailing how we think they'd play just a few days back.

Not only does the pair from Rare make a lot of sense, prominent Smash Bros. data leaker Vergeben has stated they think Banjo and Kazooie have a 99% chance of making it in.

Many of the figures put forward by fans are pretty obviously just ridiculous jokes that land due to the general hype and focus on the matter, but some certainly have us stopping to consider what Ultimate might be like should they join.

We've rounded up a good handful of our favorites to share here. Below you'll first find a gallery of still images, and then beyond that you'll see the short clips that people edited together. Most of these are placed in the Smash DLC character reveal format that Nintendo actually uses:
