8. Professor Hershel Layton (Professor Layton franchise)
Professor Hershel Layton is a thinking man, a man of logic and science… but that doesn’t mean he can’t throw down if he has to. The star of one of the most popular franchises on the DS, Layton’s gentlemanly-above-all-else charm would be a welcome addition to the Smash Bros. roster, and the hundreds of brain-teasers found in his six-game franchise would surely offer quite a bit in the way of weaponry – and for real, have you seen the size of that hat? That thing’s GOT to be heavy.
