That's 45 characters, very plausible in my honest opinion. ^_^
Also, I put Geno and Isaac on my list outside of the third-party list because they're ownership is shared between Square-Enix and Camelot respectively. Meaning, they can very well likely appear in the game without using a third-party character slot, and all Nintendo would have to do is add a disclaimer saying that the character is credited to Square-Enix or Camelot.
It's actually happened before, in Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, when Geno made a cameo appearance in the game, Nintendo didn't need permission from Square-Enix to do it, they just put the disclaimer in the credits. Also, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, it's happened again with the DK Rap. Nintendo didn't need permission from Rare Ltd. to put it in the game, they just had to add the disclaimer in the credits. ^_^
So we can have Geno and Megaman!!

Yes, very plausible indeed. Instant win-win for me if this roster would really happen. Why?

This is perfect. I don't just like this list for realism, but for one factor only: fun. Each and every character looks extremely fun to play as. It's not just who deserves to be in, or what the fans want, or who is realistic. It's who will be the most fun to put in Brawl while appeasing all fans. You, sir, are basically a genius in making this.
Of course, I do sense a bit of personal bias toward Midna. I'd say she could go either way with Tingle. The same goes for Issac and Stafy. But hey, does that really matter in the end? I worship the ground that you walk on.

Okay. It's good, but Dream Rosters are usually rosters you would put in SSBB if you were Sakurai. That means you can put even a decomfirmed character on your roster such as Samurai Goroh or Deoxys.

By "Zelda / Tetra", are you suggesting some sort of new, adult Tetra? Hmmm... that might be kind of cool, actually. Kind of hot, too, now that I think about it. I approve! As much as I liked Midna, though, I kind of see her as an Assist Trophy, myself. Still, I guess it's entirely possible she'll be a playable character.
Less Micaiah, more Sigurd. Less Paper Mario, more... something not-Mario related. Like Ray from Custom Robo, or Lip from Panel De Pon. Or maybe Demiru, from Tomato Adventure.
I honestly don't see the appeal in Paper Mario. Wasn't Dr. Mario bad enough?
Still, this is a very good list; near perfect, even. Very similar to my own, actually. It's also very believable.
8.5 / 10 overall. 9.5 without Paper Mario, although I guess that's personal bias.

Paper Mario has a hammer, and can't shoot fire. Doesn't that make him different from Mario? Who cares if it's Mario if he's a different character?

I care. :(

Adult Tetra? Just doesn't seem to fit. I don't have anything against Paper Mario, but he should be a Mario character. And Black Shadow? (Sorry, but that guy is just lame).

Well, Sakurai did say that he was looking for more villians to add to the roster, and it was either Black Shadow or Deathborn in my opinion.
I also wanted to change Zelda a little, and seeing how Link got an upgrade to his modern day appearance, as did Zelda, I thought her alter-ego should be her modern day counterpart, Tetra. Also, I doubt Tetra would appear in an adult form, seeing as how she's never had one in the Zelda series, but yet having her appear in her child form would kinda mess up the Zelda timeline. However, you also must realize that Super Smash Bros. Brawl is not a Zelda game, and I'm sure Sakurai wouldn't take something like this in account.
As for Midna, it was a tough choice between her, Tingle, and Vaati. Vaati would've just added a second villian to the Zelda series, so he wouldn't have been the greatest addition to the roster. Seeing as how Tingle wasn't in Twilight Princess kinda hurts his changes in my view, but his Japanese fanbase is pretty strong, so a change may be made there. The main reason for choosing Midna over Tingle was because of Sakurai stating that he's looking for more female combatants.
As for Paper Mario, I'd say that he'd make a great addition as a unique character. Anyone who's ever played Paper Mario games would know about this. He could use his Hammer to attack, as well as an assortment of different badges, and even his paper airplane form. Also, I'm sure his partners from the first two Paper Mario games can be thrown in some how too. Another reason I chose him was because I'm sure Sakurai would answer the call of a larger fanbase. I'm fairly confident that Paper Mario's fanbase is larger than Custom Robo, Panel de Pon, and Tomato Adventures.
As for the Fire Emblem series, I wouldn't dream of Sakurai adding two earlier Fire Emblem characters with only one modern day one. In Melee, this factor was even, with Roy representing a new Fire Emblem game that was just coming out in Japan at that time on Game Boy Advance. In my roster, Marth would represent the earlier titles, Ike would represent Path of Radiance, and alongside Micaiah, they'd both represent the newly released Radiant Dawn. Besides, seeing as how one of Ike's alternate appearances already resembles Sigurd kinda of slates his poor chances of being a seperate playable character.

Okay, but Black Shadow is just a lame puppet for Deathborne (see F-Zero GX) and Deathborne isn't well-known.
I'm not big on a Adult Tetra. It just doesn't seem to fit, and Zelda should have a different Bv or transform into Sheik. I would actually like Tetra to be a actual character (I don't like the idea of just another Link) but I know that spot is insured to Wind Waker Link. I like Vaati, (he's one of the only final bosses in the Zelda series besides Ganon), but his popularity has shruken. I know Tingle doesn't appear in Twilight Princess, but he has a character based off of him (Purlo) which technially counts. I don't have anything against Midna also, just that Twilight Princess shouldn't be the only Zelda franchise repped in SSBB.
I used to hate Paper Mario, but after I while, I realized he would be a nice addition to the roster and could replace Dr. Mario. Sadly, he just might end up as a Alterenate Costume or Assist Trophy. And, yes, he could have a unique moveset, and does have a large fanbase (which is shared with the regular Mario fanbase). But, again, Paper Mario should be a Mario character, oringating in a Mario-based game.
I don't know much about FE, but a earlier FE lord would be nice, plus having Lyn on the roster would be okay too. I don't know about Miciah, we already have a rep from Tellius (Ike), and having Miciah would ruin other FE lords chances. I would like Sigurd to be a FE rep, and that alterenate costume doesn't instantly decomfirm him.
Some more Retro repsreation would be nice. Seeing Bubbles (from Clu Clu Land), Balloon Fighter (Balloon Fight), Mach Rider or Takamaru (Nazo no Mazemrou) would be nice, and having Andy or Sami on the roster would be nice for a Advance Wars rep. Anyway, good job.
