Mortal Kombat could get 6 if street fighter does

Scorpion: Is neutral and represents the Netherrealm
Sub-Zero: Represents the forces of light and Earthrealm
Shao Kahn: Represents forces of darkness and the Outworld
Kitana: Represents the forces of light and Edenia
Raiden: Represents The elder Gods
Kenshi: Represents "3D era"

Mostly because if we are really going to have that many Street Fighter reps, it should be the ones most everyone should recognize. Smash Bros. is a game where Nintendo's most well known characters come and duke it out. There are a few non-Nintendo characters, but those should be only the most well known. Such as Sonic and Mega Man. Ryu and Chun-Li fit because even people who don't play SF know who those are.
Well, I don't think popularity is everything, but I suppose I'll just agree to disagree there. Crusade is just a fan game, after all. If it were a real Smash Bros game then maybe I'd worry more about the limitations of having more non-Nintendo characters, but in this game's case I don't think that really matters much. Plus, there's nothing wrong with adding a not-so-well-known character to boost popularity of that character. A decent number of actual Smash Bros characters did exactly this (Ness, Lucas, C. Falcon, Roy, Corrin, Pit, and ROB; Shulk and Marth for Westerners), and it turned out fairly well despite the fact that few people knew those characters beforehand.

It's less that they are unpopular, but more that they're coming from a franchise with more well known characters. It's like picking Mario, Peach and Nabbit. Where's Bowser and Luigi?

Well, that's why I think limiting ourselves to six reps is a bad idea in some cases. Having just Ryu and Chun-li is perfectly fine, but if we have a whopping 6 characters from Street Fighter the potential for more will become much stronger. If we had, for example:
-Ryu (Evil)
-Chun-li
-Guile
-Zangief
-Dictator
We'd already have five characters, all of them best known for their appearance in SFII. Most would say SFI may not matter, sure, but what about SFIII, which is very popular among competitive fans of the series? Or the long running SFIV series, which introduced one of the most popular characters in the series (Juri)? Or Street Fighter Alpha, which includes such fan favorites as Karin, and Charlie? Heck, aside from Ryu, even SFI has Sagat, who is arguably just as iconic as all of the characters listed up there. If Ken and Akuma weren't shotoclones they'd be in the running too since I'd say both are even more iconic than Zangief and Guile put together.
Point is, I feel like limiting ourselves to only 6 reps just won't work for certain franchises with an enormous amount of valid options. Honestly, I don't think Street Fighter should get many more characters if any because it would open the door for too many more and I'd hardly call it Capcom's "main" franchise. Say what you will, but I still think Megaman deserves more attention no matter how Capcom treats the series. Plus, on a side note, Smash is a fighting game, so if more SF characters don't get in...I mean, you can still fight as them in Street Fighter, so it's not that big a deal. Very different games, but same genre in the end. If it were up to me, the only extra Street Fighter character I'd add would be Dictator...no one else.

Is "Dictator" the same as M. Bison (I think he goes by Bulrog in Japan)?

Anyways, I think that M. Bison and either Guile or Zangief would be my choices to fill out Street Fighter, assuming that there is some kind of unwritten rule on the matter at hand. Honestly, if a series has enough iconic (and unique) characters AND is a large series, I see no problem in introducing a large amount of characters. Look at the Mario Series. Including Donkey Kong, Yoshi, and Wario, there are 18 characters, and plenty more to choose (We are still missing Rosalina, Bowser Jr, Dr Mario, and Diddy Kong from the main Smash games). Of those, only Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Wario would be considered "Important", which totals 8.

This is part of the reason why I am pretty impartial with some series having a large representation in comparison to others. Kid Icarus, for example, has had only 3 games (1 of which wasn't even in Japan as far as I know), yet has 3 characters, while Star Fox has had a total of 7 games, yet has less representation due to Wolf being cut from Smash 4.
