RANDOM TIME! - What characters are most likely for Smash Ultimate's Fighters Pass 2 when predicting using math?

Smashingly interesting!

Predictions for the next character to be added to the Super Smash Bros. series always go off the rails. There are so many possibilities, it seems impossible to find a definitive answer without Nintendo directly revealing who it is. But what if you were to predict using nothing but pure mathematics? That is what the YouTuber "Backseat Game Development" did, and the result is highly interesting, but also insane! Check out the extraordinarily well put together video above to find out who is "most likely" for Smash Ultimate's Fighter Pass 2 using only math.

Internal character codename for Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was "Master"

Internal codenames are a common practice for projects in development at different game studios. DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are no exception, and it's interesting to see the different codenames that were used for each fighter. Joker from Persona 5 was known as "Jack", Hero from Dragon Quest was known as "Brave", and so on and so forth. With the recent launch of Challenger Pack 5, Byleth from Fire Emblem Three Houses is the latest character for us to receive previously publicly hidden information. According to PushDustin on Twitter, Byleth was internally referred to as "Master", which is likely a translation of "Sensei".

DOOM Eternal director says they've talked to Nintendo about 'DOOM Slayer' in Smash Bros. Ultimate, but its 'never gone anywhere'

Is this speculated character doomed?

Doom Slayer (commonly referred to as "Doomguy") has always been a highly speculated character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Due to the legacy of the DOOM franchise, and how recognizable the character is across the gaming community, the demon destroyer would be an excellent addition to Smash. Recently, Marty Stratton, director of Doom Eternal, was interviewed by Metro, where he was asked about the rumors of Doom Slayer being added to the game. According to his response, discussions have been had, but "it’s never gone anywhere serious." Check out the full interview snippet below!

What about the rumours of Doom Slayer being in Smash Bros.? [This was a couple of days before the Byleth announcement] Do you think it could ever happen?

MS: I don’t know. We’ve asked them.

You asked them?

MS: Yeah.

Well, that’s how Solid Snake got in it. Would they discount it just because of the gore and violence though?

MS: I dunno. You would honestly have to ask them. We’ve never been approached and said, ‘Hey can Doomguy be in Smash Bros.?’ But we’re open-minded if they wanna ask. But we hear it all the time [from fans]. Who would say no? [laughs]

But you did ask them?

MS: We’ve had… I don’t even know who talked to who, but we’ve bantered with them. We have a great relationship with them through bringing Doom 2016 to Switch and that kind of stuff. So we have great people over there but it’s one of those things where it’s like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool?’ But it’s never gone anywhere serious, so we’ll see.
