Songs I'd Like to see as DLC in Smash Vol. 2

So the Super Mario Maker stage recently hit Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS as downloadable content. the Wii U version gives you a whopping 27 songs to choose as background music as you battle. That's a lot of songs for one stage but sadly, most of them are used for other Super Mario stages in past Smash games. But the fact that one stage got so many songs is more than a little surprising and I don't see why more music can't be added to existing stages. Even if DLC music bundles in Smash 4 Wii U doesn't become a thing, I can always dream.

For Pac-Land

Everyone's favorite cherry chasing dot muncher has a wide assortment of tunes for Pac-Land. A lot of theme are medleys of classic Namco games and that's fine and dandy but I couldn't help but notice a server lack of Ridge Racer love. There's also music that could be used from Cyber Sled, one of Bandai Namco's more obscure titles. How about that Klonoa guy? His games have some really good music. There's an awesome remix of Pac-Man's Park and Block Town from Pac-Mania but sadly, neither of the original songs are in Smash 4.

Ridge Racer (Ridge Racer)
Rare Hero (Ridge Racer)
Over the Highway (Ridge Racer Revolution)
Maximum Zone (Ridge Racer Revolution)
Rage Racer (Rage Racer)
Mech Monster (Rage Racer)
Revlimit Funk (R4: Ridge Racer Type 4)
SAMURAi ROCKET (Ridge Racer V)
MotorPacCity5 (Ridge Racer V)
Be warped time (Cyber Sled)
The Windmill Song (Klonoa: Door to Phantomile)
Block Town (Pac-Mania)
Pac-Man's Park (Pac-Mania)

For Windy Hill

Pac-Man was happy to give the spotlight to other Bandai Namco series when it came to music for his stage so I don't see why Sonic can't do the same. Of course since it is his stage and his games have tons of awesome tracks, I've got no qualms about hearing more sweet Sonic jams while smashing fools.

Shooting Star (Ristar)
Splashdown!! (Ristar)
Magical Sound Shower (OutRun)
Passing Breeze (OutRun)
Paternal Horn (NiGHTS into dreams...)
The Dragon Gave a Loud Scream (NiGHTS into dreams...)
Storm (Super Monkey Ball)
Outride a Crisis (Super Hang-On)
Boss: Big Arm (Sonic Generations)
Radical Highway Act 1 (Sonic Generations)
Emerald Coast (Sonic Adventure)
Speed Highway (Sonic Adventure)
CHAOS ver. 6 (Sonic Adventure) 

For Kirby Stages

There are three Kirby stages to brawl on in Smash Wii U and all of them have a diverse selection of music. Having said that, I was disappointed that more themes didn't make it into any of those stages. Machine Passage is perfect smashing material as is Miracle Matter. I'm really surprised Return to Dream Land's final boss theme wasn't included.

Meta Knight's Theme (Kirby Super Star)
Rock Star (Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards)
Miracle Matter (Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards)
Machine Passage (Kirby Air Ride)
Sky Sands (Kirby Air Ride)
Techno Factory (Kirby's Return to Dream Land)
Vs. Magalor (Kirby's Return to Dream Land)
C-R-O-W-N-E-D (Kirby's Return to Dream Land)
Galacta Knight (Kirby's Return to Dream Land)

Music from Splatoon

Splatoon has an amazing soundtrack. If you think all the good beats are in the online multiplayer mode, you really should give the solo game a spin. Having recently finished the single player mode, I can say that I've finally heard the final boss music and it along with numerous other Splatoon beats would be wonderful additions to the Smash soundtrack.

For Pokemon Stages

Some solid battle themes remixes made it into Smash. Unfortunately, a plethora of other excellent ones did not.

Battle! Successor Korrina (Pokemon X/Y)
Battle! Lysandre (Pokemon X/Y)
