I think (I think, but I might be wrong knowing me) Reggie commented after the Joker reveal that all fighters in the DLC are from series never repped by fighters in Smash, so that puts anyone who comes from a series already in Smash is dead...

Hey, SGoW, remember when you said Bandana Dee wouldn't get in?

Just take all the salty tears, bathe in them or something... at least he's a spirit.

You're misquoting. He said characters new to the series, not new franchises to the series.

Now, he did say that they'd be characters you wouldn't necessarily expect to be in Smash, which rules out Bandana Dee anyway.

Whatever the Echo fighter is, I want an Echo Fighter that isn't from the same series as the parent character. Surprise me.
Late reply but this. The defect could work in many ways:
1) In character roster the list order could be messed up, as the sidekick/echo is listed above the protagonist.
2) In future Smash title, an echo/sidecick may stay even if the protagonist of his/her franchise has been wiped out, which may seem very contradictory.

I see the good thing is that you can make best use of the fighter movesets, if the movesets themselves are not too specific or licensed. But it could be an uncoded rule that only characters within the same franchise are supposed to share the traits given by game settings, historical or game design reasons, so that Nintendo don't want to break it by forcing characters of different franchises to be echoes like they did in early times with Captain Ganon.

So forgive the part of my brain that knows about Fire Emblem, LGM, but ya want an echo fighter for a character not in the same series?

Sephiran as an echo of Palutena.

all i want is funky.... im sad that he may not get a chance anymore
morpho knight for meta knight perhaps?
for waht i dont want, well in a way, ive seen people suggest birdo for yoshi and gooey for kirby and i feel like the movesets just arent compatible honestly. for birdo what would replace yoshis tongue?
and then gooey and kirby play the same gameplay wise in kdl3 i believe, but smash wise the animations dont work (one has limbs and one doesnt), a lotmoves will have to be replaced completely, and thats like too much differences for an echo
