10. Waddle Dee/Isaac/Jibanyan/Geno/Arle Nadja (2.7%)

Because Lucas and Wolf had some similarities with their predecessors. They're what I call Ganonclones.
Snake on the other hand had a moveset completely unlike anyone else and played unlike most everyone (based trapmaster).
To be fair, Japan got like 12 times as many Mystical Ninja games as America.
>Crash wasn't even in Sony Smash Rip Off Battle Royale
So they do remember him. In Japan, he got a way simpler and cuter character design made by ND himself, I think, and there even used to be these crazy ass commercials in Japan, not even mentioning that one crazy ass dance that got to be shown in almost every commercial.
I wonder how it'd be if he actually made it in
but with his Japanese design instead of his Titans design or his American older design, but still being his old self.Some of his cancelled games had a character design for him that resembled the Japanese one a whole lot too.
