Background: K. Rool by any name is the main antagonist for the Donkey Kong series since the release of DKC in 1994. He is the king of the Kremlings, a “crocodillian” race. His goal is to steal the Kong’s banana hoard, for reasons that are not fully understood.

Reasoning: SSB can use more of both heavy-weight characters and villians. Considering Donkey Kong has been included since the first SSB title it would stand to reason that K. Rool would make his appearance.

Probability: His chances seem pretty good in theory, however with talk of Dixie Kong’s inclusion (being that she is returning in DKC: Tropical Freeze) and the removal of the Kremlings from newer Donkey Kong titles, his chances may not be as high as some would like.

Thoughts: He needs to be included, plain and simple. Some of the characters they add to past rosters don’t even make sense. Plus I miss him and his Kremlings from the newer DKC games. He gets my top pick for new roster addition.
