Giant Unlockable Characters

Even though the game isn't yet released, Sakurai has stated some characters who were planned, but cut.
Originally, Red Pikmin, Blue Pikmin, Yellow Pikmin, Purple Pikmin, and White Pikmin would be starting characters, while Rock Pikmin, Winged Pikmin, and Mushroom Pikmin (even though it's not even a species of Pikmin) were unlockable characters, however they have been cut.
Another character considered was Tac. His neutral move, Copy, would scan a player and gain their neutral special attack. He would have that move for the rest of the match. While it wouldn't damage the player while scanning, it would do double its regular power when used on the copied character for the first time. He was cut because he was similair to Nabbit, his Neutral move was too similair to Krby's, and Sakurai didn't want to over-represent the Kirby franchise.
Another characater considered was Mini Donkey Kong and Possessed Mini Mario. This duo would work together to K.O. foes. Mini Donkey Kong would be powerful and defensive but slow, and Possessed Mini Mario would be fast, but not powerful or defensive. They were replaced with Mini Mario because Mini Mario was more iconic.
Another character considered was Princess Shroob and Shroobs. Princess Shroob would be a very weak character, but she would have five shroobs to protect her. She was replaced with Fawful because he had a much larger fanbase.
Another character considered was a Penguin from Mario. It would be in the DLC Pack Christmas, and its moveset would be based around the Penguin Suit from the NSMB series. It was removed because they thought that they would get critisism for including it.
Another character considered was Mike Tyson. Since they thought they would get critisism for including a real-life person, they replaced him with King Hippo.
Originally, Wiggler and Wii Fit balance Board were playable. Wiggler would be able to seperate himself, like one Wiggler did in Paper Mario: Sticker Star (with magic from Kamek), while Wii Fit Balance Board would have moves based of off Wii Fit's regular games, like Obstacle Course. However, due to critisism, they were removed and replaced with Koopa Troopa and Shop Keeper.
Originally, Koopa Troopa was going to be slipt into Green Koopa Troopa and Red Koopa Troopa. Green Koopa Troopa would be harder-hitting, and Red Koopa Troopa would target opponents. However, they decided to only use the Green Koopa Troopa's style of play, and only using the Red Koopa Troopa as a costume.
DLC has been announced. So far, only one pack has been announced for DLC. However, work has not yet begun on it.
