Wario may be the antithesis of his goody-two-shoes brother Mario, but that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve a little love, or more precisely a little smash time. My personal favorite of the newcomers, Wario is making his way into the Super Smash Bros. universe in a big way. Sporting his WarioWare duds, Wario enters the fray with attacks like chomp and Wario-Man that are just as eccentric as he is.
Yoshi is the only other dinosaur-type character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl besides Bowser. Does that mean he is a worthy rival? I would say so. Yoshi has some pretty cool moves this time around, although most of them do involve tossing a green speckled egg. But his final smash is the Super Dragon, which sounds pretty destructive if you ask me.
Princess Zelda may not have been a real fighting powerhouse in the series of games that carry her namesake, but this girl can definitely kick some butt. Why else would she have returned for another round of Smash Bros. glory? The answer is simple: this princess rocks! Her magic is pretty incredible, and gives the player great long distance attacking ability.
Zero Suit Samus
Although Samus herself is a Super Smash Bros. veteran, Zero Suit Samus will be making her first appearance as a playable character in Brawl. So what's the difference between the two? Well they are the same person, but Zero Suit Samus is much faster and has a longer reach than the armored Samus. She also uses a plasma weapon in this form, which is a little bit more fluid then armored Samus' charge weapon. Zero Suit Samus plays in a completely different way than armored Samus, and is therefore rightly included as her own character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
