The ongoing poll is one of the largest fan ballots in Smash history, boasting over 13,000 votes.

Amusingly, it also features obscure suggestions from players, featuring characters some may consider extremely unlikely to end up in Fighters Pass Volume 2.

Minecraft’s Steve came third with 704 votes, not surprising given the popularity of the franchise. While Steve is normally near the top in fan votes, the next few characters are a bit of a shocker.
