Most fighting game rosters are big today, more than 30 characters is the standard for the most series. Sometimes you see "clone" characters there though or characters you just never liked and think they can be removed from the game or the series and it wouldnt be a big loss.


Which characters would you like to see forgotten/removed in future installments of a fighting game series?

Depends on the game franchise.

Mortal Kombat has many more-than-forgettable characters, and I certainly wouldn't miss most of them: Palette-swapped characters, Bo-Rai-Cho, Meat, Mokap, Stryker (even if he's tier 1), 2-legged centaur Motaro (WTF!!!)

SF series could certainly drop some of the shotoclones or boring characters such as Q. Do something a la MvC Ryu which includes Ken and Gouki's features, or keep a single Shoto and customize him via ISM or SF3's Super Arts. Don't remove a classic black boxer just to add new black boxer, or a classic charge character with weird hair, by a charge character with a spiky pompadour or by an emo wearing elf shoes

KOF have some characters with 0-charisma. One hit wonders such as May Lee, K9999, Oswald, Duo Lon... Don't get me wrong, they could be fun to play or great characters for competitive play, but they lack a good background story or a good reason to be in the game's plot other than "being a friend of X" or "seeks revenge against Y".

That also goes for all these fighting games with guest stars from other game series. Yes, it may be cool to play as Darth Vader in Sould Calibur, Kratos in MK, Gon in Tekken3 or Cole in SFxT, but shoehorning them into these games is sometimes a bit of a stretch

if you ask anyone who captain cheap-o is in  the tekken community, they'll turn and say lars. go to any tekken tournament and see the reaction when they see a lars player. (even though its rare) lars needs to be banished from tekken. theres no need for another "mishima" especially one like him.

alisa on the other hand is fun to play with and has clever moves. So I disagree with getting rid of her.

Bob is the other player that should be banished.....100 times more cheap then lars and just a pointless addition to tekken

I actually think she should come back. Not in a SF game (never in a SF game). But in full-house, Capcom Crossovers.
(...) or keep a single Shoto and customize him via ISM or SF3's Super Arts
That's a bit much...! B-but...I think it could be cool if Capcom bought Ace. Or not. Dunno.

Bob is cool looking...what about just a nerf?

Twelve from SF3 the worst character in that roster. He could be cool character if they made him turn into and do better stuff.

Combot and Alex from tekken they couldn't be any more like Roger and Mokujin.

Edit: Len and K. Mugen spoiled it for me since theirs a bunch of edits and remakes of them.

-Rolento.  Crap design, boring as hell, no personality.  Next.

-Karin.  Keep her ass in TxSF or give her a makeover or something.  Her fighting style is fucking bland and way too mundane for SF.  Lili pulls off this character ten times better.

-Felicia.  I actually think her character's personality is quite pleasant, but I despise her design/fighting style/moveset so much, especially in MVC3 where not only is she really good, but somehow nobody uses her which makes the matchup damn near impossible to learn. 

-About half of the Guilty Gear cast (barring Sol, Baiken, Potemkin, Slayer, I-No, Anji, Axl, Robo Ky and a few others).  Just....go away.  Especially fucking Bridget and Ky. 

-Lars.  I cannot believe this is an official character.  Just.....look at him, read his backstory.  This is the kind of thing a fanfic writer would come up with.  And yet he's in an official game and annoying as hell to fight.  Ugh.

-Marrow.  She was crap in Marvel comics and she was crap in MVC2.  Good riddance.

-Area from SFEX.  Probably the only character from this series that is absolutely repugnant in every way.  Everyone else brought at least something strange and not-SF-ish to the table.

-Whip.  Exists only to take spots on two teams that rightfully belong to far superior and more popular characters.  Un fun to play as, un fun to fight, not cool or interesting in the slightest.

-Momoko.  Garbage design, shitty animations, boring moveset.  Yawn.

-Quan Chi.  I just hate this guy so much, but I do want him to show up in one last game so he can die for good in the story and then never be seen again.

-Megaman, Volnutt, Roll, Zero, Tron.  Go away please.  I'll take SFxT Megaman though, he's boss.

-The entire rosters of Phantom Breaker and Skullgirls.

-Cole McGrath.  The fact that I even have to list him as a fighting game character disgusts me.

Also MC2 mentioned Lars earlier and I have to agree. He reads like a fanfiction character some 7 year old DeviantArt user cooked up. He just happens to be Heihachi's long lost bastard son, speaks primarily Japanese despite being Swedish in a franchise where everyone's good about speaking their native tongue, has a cute robot girlfriend, has a cliche story in T6, I half expected the Devil Gene to be shoehorned in with him being able to master it at a younger age than Kazuya did.
