Back in November, a Super Smash Bros Ultimate leak correctly guessed we’d see Joker from Persona 5 in Smash Bros Ultimate. The same leak suggests upcoming Smash Ultimate DLC characters will include Banjo Kazooie, Crono from Chrono Trigger, Edelgard from Fire Emblem and more. Here’s more on the new Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leaks.
Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leaks
The leak initially came from 4chan and was archived to Fireden. It claimed to confirm a range of
new Smash Bros Ultimate DLC characters, including Joker from Persona 5.
While many shaky leaks have surfaced across the web, this one seems like it could have something to it. Joker from Persona 5 was a character which never appeared on Nintendo, making it an unlikely guess.
The leak claimed to have sources on five new possible characters.
Crono in Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
The possibility of a new Square Enix rep in Smash Ultimate has been brought up many times. In addition to the recent 4chan leak, credible leaker Vergeben also supports this theory.
According to the recent DLC leak, the character could be Crono from Chrono Trigger. Interestingly, a data-miner also found a ‘Chrono’ file in the Smash Bros Ultimate game files.
This could mean something else, such as some kind of in-game time value. Still, with ‘Chrono’ being the protagonist’s translated Japanese name, it definitely adds some interest to this theory.
Neku in Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
Neku Sakuraba from The World Ends With You was also brought up as a possible Square Enix inclusion.
With the game’s recent re-release on the Switch, and Sakurai’s tendency to include RPG protagonists, this one makes a lot of sense.
Banjo Kazooie in Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
Banjo Kazooie has been brought up in various leaks, including the infamous fake Grinch leak. Fans lowered their expectations after learning the N64 duo weren’t present in the launch roster.
However, Banjo Kazooie in Smash Bros Ultimate is still possible. Both Microsoft and Banjo Kazooie’s creator have shown support for their inclusion.

Edelgard in Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
While it seems there are already enough Fire Emblem characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, we could have another coming.
The 4chan leak states that Edelgard from Fire Emblem Three Houses has also been brought up by a source.
While there are already 7 Fire Emblem reps in the Smash Bros Ultimate roster. However, there’s also 8 Pokemon Fighters and 9 Super Mario characters, so another FE Fighter is far from impossible.
Sylux in Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
The Smash Bros Ultimate leak also claims Sylux from Metroid will be in the roster.
Sylux was a bounty hunter and antagonist in Metroid Prime: Hunters and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. He’s also rumored to be the main villain of Metroid Prime 4.
Interestingly, of the 1,300 plus Spirits in Smash Bros Ultimate, Sylux is missing. This is despite other Hunters making it in. This could be a new DLC character to be announced along with the launch of Metroid Prime 4.
