'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' Roster Rumor: 5 Bethesda Characters We Might See

In an interview with Metro, Pete Hines, the Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communication At Bethesda, said that conversations with Nintendo about Smash Bros . have occured. "We're always having conversations with them, but again those conversations wouldn't necessarily take place with me," Hines said. "They'd take place with a dev to say 'we have an idea for a this or a that and we wanna do a game that's crossover with the Switch.'" Now there's nothing official, but that won't stop me from day dreaming. What characters, from Bethesda's massive library of oddballs and quirky degenerates, could make it in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster ?



The mute protagonist of the DOOM series belongs in a Super Smash Bros . game. The deleter of demons from Mars, Doomguy has come a long way since his pixelated '90s adventures. In the most recent gameplay footage for the newly announced DOOM: Eternal , he's got a grappling hook attached to his shotgun, a new demonic blade and countless other weapons we haven't even seen yet. Imagine up smashing Diddy Kong into a Cacodemon's mouth? If Bayonetta and Solid Snake aren't too dark to get into a punch-out with Pikachu, than neither is Doomguy.

Skyrim's Dragonborn


Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most successful games of all time and has already been ported to the Nintendo Switch. Take that iconic horned helmet and slap it onto a barbarian with a legendary blade and you've got yourself a badass fighter. Shout "Fus Ro Dah" in full-plate armor and watch your enemies cower in the back of the Hyrule Temple stage.

Vault Boy

A more thematically appropriate character for the Smash Bros . universe, Vault Boy could make a splash on the competitive scene. Outside of Fallout: Shelter, the mascot for Vault-Tec hasn't ever had a chance to play alongside the rest of the Fallout universe. He's always been quarantined to tutorials and bobble heads. This would be a great chance for Bethesda to show the world what an untethered Vault Boy could do; from summoning different versions of himself to enjoying a nice glass of Nuka Cola to heal up.

B.J. Blazkowicz

The nazi-slaughtering badass from Wolfenstein might be a bit too edgy for a Nintendo-ensemble simulator, but that's not going to stop me from hoping. Piloting a Panzerhund for your ultimate smash and incinerating Mario's little moustache into tiny crumbs would be a dream come true. Just skip the first level when he's stuck in a wheelchair, and you have a highly tactical assassin with an array of badass, dual-wielding guns.


Elder Scrolls Wikia

Fuck it, I want to see a real dragon on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster. Not Ridley or Bowser, an actual dragon that breathes fire and has wings. The wise and talkative Paarthurnax from Skyrim's famous "Throat of the World" quest fits the bill perfectly.
