Top 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters

This is a list of 10 of the downright most useless characters and or companions in some of your favorite or just some popular games.

The Top TenXW

1Magikarp - Pokemon

Magikarp can evolve into Gyarados, so your argument is invalid! - iiKyodaiKickz

Sure, there are crazy pokefans who can game the system enough to make Magikarp awesome, but with an equal amount of work you could catch an army of Mewtwos and conquer the world with them. At base, Magikarp is useless its only attack is to flop around on the ground and do nothing.

2Slippy - Starfox

Could anyone else really have been at the top of this list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters? Fox's companions aren't always the most useful bunch, but Slippy managed to crown himself king of the losers by constantly getting into trouble, requiring you either save his stupid, amphibious ass, or laugh as he gets shot down.

3Servbot - Marvel vs Capcom 2

Servbot may be tiny, but he makes up for it by dealing virtually no damage and having special/super moves that take forever to activate, leaving him constantly open to attack.

4Edward - Final Fantasy IV

The only thing Edward has ever contributed to the world is when Tellah called him a "spoony bard" and he went down in meme history.

5Pichu - Super Smash Bros. Melee

This Pika-Clone's own lightning attacks hurt it, and it's such a lightweight that a single well-placed uppercut can knock it out even if its damage is as low as 20% (and we've seen it happen). Welcome to the list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters, Pichu.

6Kimahri - Final Fantasy X

FFX's resident furball is also its most useless character anything he can do, everyone else can do better.

7Rico - Xenogears

To put it kindly, Rico is crap, and his Gear (giant robot suit), is also crap. Every other character has some value to them, even the weirder ones. Maria may be weak on foot, but her Gear is incredibly powerful. ChuChu might be a strange, pink fuzzball, but it can cast healing spells on the other Gears, which is invaluable given the difficulty of recovering their hit points. Rico, however, has got nothing'.

8Peco - Breath of Fire III

His weird onion guy is easily overshadowed by the other, superior BoF III characters, and his inclusion makes you wonder if Capcom thought they were making their own kind of Moogles when coming up with this cute-ish animal/vegetable mascot.

9Villager - Minecraft
10The Alchemist - Ultima III: Exodus

That's right, we're going old-school. In a game full of wizards, warriors, and you, the Alchemist is the one character class with terrible stats, non-existent weapon and armor skills, and no magic to speak of. If you're going to play as an Alchemist you're better off just shutting the game down.

The Contenders

11Papyrus - UndertaleProbably the second most popular character from the already insanely popular 2015 indie RPG known as Undertale, Papyrus the skeleton is Sans' taller and skinnier younger brother (much like how Luigi is to Mario in the Super Mario Bros series, except that Papyrus is physically stronger than Sans) who more.V1 Comment
12Sean - Street Fighter III: Third Strike

If you examine any tier list for SFIII: Third Strike you'll find that Sean is widely considered the worst character, and that's probably because he's rocking a moveset that's exactly like Ryu and Ken's, only worse in every way. No wonder he belongs on our list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters.

13Sora - Kingdom Hearts
14Princess Elise - Sonic the Hedgehog

Because it's still a video game?

Why the hell is ANYTHING from Sonic 06 here?!? Leave now! - FineDough

15Peach - Super Princess Peach
16Condiment King - Lego Batman 3
17Jack - Cave Story
18Jerry - Undertale
19Alphys - UndertaleAlphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the more.
20Mumkhar - Xenoblade Chronicles
