Worst Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U Newcomers

The game has been out for a year, but remember that time when you saw the newcomers and you were like "Oh my god, I can't wait to play as Mega Man" or something like that. But, some of them you were like "Is Sakurai trolling with us?" Today, I'll be listing the worst newcomers. I'll determine by, hype, usefulness, and how big the surprise. Please don't think I hate these characters. Enjoy!

The Top TenXW

1Wii Fit Trainer

She's the easiest character for me. Everyone hates her but I always win when I play as her - PianoQueen

You obviously saw this coming. To me, this was the weirdest choice to ever be included in Smash Bros. - SmashBall

2Dr. Mario

I'm not even sure if I would consider him a newcomer! He's appeared in Melee, and he's a clone of Mario. I'm pretty nobody would've cared if he returned or not. - SmashBall

Next time, he should be a palette swap character of Mario with a different outfit & different move set.

4Dark Pit

I wouldn't consider clone newcomers to be considered actual newcomers, but at least he's more useful than #3 and #2. - SmashBall

Why is it that Pokken could have two Pikachus and two Mewtwos and have them all play almost completely differently from each other, but Smash couldn't do that with Pit and Dark Pit? Such a lame and biased choice.


Robin is one of those characters that everyone keeps forgetting that's in the roster. He's good, but underrated. - SmashBall

6Mii Brawler

It looked like a cool idea to have your Mii in the game, but they're just so useless. Maybe, if they had better movesets, they would be much better. - SmashBall


This is the only character in this list, that I actually hate. He/She is being overused, and he/she is just in the roster for advertisement. Also, I'm pretty sure, no one knew who the heck he/she was when they were revealed. - SmashBall

It's a celebration of Nintendo, not Fire Emblem.

I knew who it was the instant I saw Ryoma.

9Bowser Jr.Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Bowser Jr. to me is fine, but why did they add the whole Koopalings? At least they don't actually have their own character slots, and they're just costume changes. (Unlike others) - SmashBall


"Anything an angel can do, a goddess can do better" Well Palutena, look at the tier list. - SmashBall

The Contenders


Why did all the perverts and feminists swarm the Smash ballot?

No one really knew Shulk (unless you played Xenoblade Chronicles) so some people were confuse, but he's a pretty good character. He's one of my secondaries. - SmashBall

13Little Mac

I was excited when he was revealed, but there's one problem, he's so darn cheap. What all Little Macs do, is they spam his smash attacks which is a counter, and makes him invisible. - SmashBall

14Rosalina & Luma

I LOVE Rosalina, she's my main, but admittedly she's pretty undeserving to be in a game like Smash Bros. - SmashBall

15Duck Hunt Dog

The least expected newcomer of them all.


Who added Peach? She's not a newcomer! - SmashBall

Everyone hates her. She doesn't deserve to be in this wonderful game.
