Top Ten Worst Super Smash Brothers Brawl Characters

The worst characters to use in Super Smash Brothers Brawl.

The Top TenXW


Jiggly puff is a good character! His jumps are multiple and is so cute and can put opponents to sleep, but you can't!

Great, Jigglypuff got all the spotlight and is treated like a goddess while Gardevoir's a victim to perverts and even got hated by the developers THEMSELVES. That's fair. Gardevoir would be unique for a newcomer because her final smash can be a black hole, but no. She's a almost useless pokéball pokémon and Jigglypuff's a fully playable fighter again. That's one of the reasons why I hate Jigglypuff.

Jigglypuff has been my least favorite since the beginning in 64 people say she's so good with rest but against players it's so easy to dodge I have never met a jigglypuff online I haven't been able to beat seriously horrible character if you miss with roll you can very well kill yourself sing lasts too long people can wake up before it's over her final smash is horrible people can just wait till the last minute to jump off the edge and back to dodge it and when her shield breaks she dies? COME ON that's just pathetic jigglypuff worst character since 64 and always will be and yes I have tried playing as her and every character on and offline replace jiggly loser with another Pokemon any Pokemon death to jiggly loser

I hate jigglypuff ass

2Princess Peach

The problem with Princess Peach lies within the mechanics of Brawl itself. In Melee, Peach a fantastic character, because she brought something completely new to the table: she was a floaty character. This opened up a whole new realm of possibilities in a fast-paced game like Melee.

But in Brawl, everything is much slower-paced than Melee, and the jumps are all much floater than they were in Melee. As a result, Peach is now a character specifically built around her floatiness, in a game where every character had a floaty jump. Thus making her absolutely worthless. And her horrendous Final Smash doesn't help her at all. It's a shame, because Peach was an excellent character in Melee.

Peach keeps getting compared to Zelda. Well Peach has nothing on Zelda. Peach doesn't do anything except kick with her ass and moves she never actually does. I'm sorry for those Peach fans but Peach ruins the game. You go through everything to save her. It isn't Mario's fault!

Did Princess Peach have to beat Princess Zelda/win anyways in Death Battle?

Peach is an annoying kidnapped princess. She puts all the other characters like Link and Mario and etc try to almost kill themselves just to save her from bowser and then tries to kill them in brawls. At least Zelda jumped out of the plane and tried to fight Fox. Ditsy Peach offers them tea. Rosalina is a way better princess.

Rosalina sucks. She is in everything. She will never be as a classic as Peach will be. Peach is the first lady of video games. But seriously, she is annoying. La la la la la, that taunt makes me want to quit the match.

Lets compare her to Zelda shall we? While Zelda uses awesome magic and destroys people with an arrow of light, peach fights with her butt and an umbrella. How can she possibly go out and try to kill the best characters like link and sonic, but not save herself from Bowser? Even jiggly puff is better than her.

This guy's power is actually nothing to laugh at. His forward smash fully charged and connecting the strongest hitbox kills as low as 46 percent, his reverse Aerial Warlock Punch can KO as low as 12 percent, his up tilt can kill at 0 percent if the opponent is on the ledge, and his dair (in the air) can kill at 0 percent depending how far from the bottom the opponent is and how good their recoveries are. Good heavens, those numbers make even Ike proud. But Ganondorf has the shortest grab range which is harmful because almost every character is faster requring Ganondorf practice to get a grab, he has atrocious recovery, and a very slow movement. Slow attacks, walk, dash, and jumps. Wow. Even thought Ganondorf has a very heavy weight and fats falling speed making him good for survivng KOs, he is the tallest character, though most heavyweights have a size problem. Ganondorf is also the only character in the whole SERIES to have no advantegous or even matchups. FAIL. Ganondorf requires ...more - bubbles1111

He is the strongest smasher in the game, but his speed puts him down a lot. I like Ganondorf but not in this game. I can't use him not matter how hard I try. It usually matters on how the player uses the character.

Why the heck is he on this list he is amazing! He has 3 attacks that deal over 30 damage 2 that deal over 20 and the rest except two others deal over 10. He is so powerful plus his finisher is a one hit KO if on a field like battlefield or Final Destination.

I'm So Glad They Made Him Better In Smash 4.

Guys really, there are no terrible characters in a Smash Bros. Game, alright? Like almost every character has a very identical pro and con. Sure, Olimar's attacks have barely any power in them, but hey, why not Jigglypuff? Her moveset is entirely weak, why can't Olimar's? But he makes up for his weak attacks with EXCELLENT range, having a total of 6 projectiles, impressive knockback, and having one of the best Final Smashes in the entire game. If you say Olimar is bad, you're just experienced with him. Try to get used to his moveset, and you'll be kicking some serious ass.

The only 2 characters that I agree are bad are rob and olimar. Their attacks are weak. Olimar is the the weakest. If you are missing pikmin, than an entire set of attacks are useless. The only good thing about him is his final smash. But most of the time you can't even get it because be is so terrible. I once did a randomness brawl. (with random stages and characters. I became olimar and he was so bad I instantly canceled the brawl.

You've got to be kidding me. Olimar in brawl is easily one of the most versatile and deadly characters in smash history. He can rack up damage like a boss with a constant stream of pikmin throws, and his smash attacks are very reliable and able to KO fairly easy without being punished. His grab range is truly something to behold, and can stop most any approach. Although his aerials suffer from a lack of range that his other attacks rely on, they are still quick and strong enough to hold their own against anyone. His only true weakness is his gimpable recovery and light weight, but his immense strengths outweigh these weaknesses. He's top tier for a good reason. The reason he's up here is because a bunch of incompetent n00bs never learned to use one of the most powerful characters in smash history.

I don't like olimar at all. He's so hard to use

5The Ice Climbers

When the blue ice climber dies, why does the pink one want to die too? Can't she stand up for herself?

That's because the pink ice climber the computer and it can't control its without player 1

Definitely the worst character (s) in the game. First, they should NOT be allowed, because unlike every other character in the whole game (and in the original game and in melee), they are 2 characters together (which I think adds unfairness to the game). Second, almost all if their attacks are sluggish and not that powerful. And third, they have a pretty low running speed and jump height. Their smash attack is reasonable, but can easily be avoided by characters that can fly or have a high jump height (like Kirby, Jigglypuff, Peach, etc.). They also cry like babies when they lose, which annoys the heck out of me.

In my opinion, they are the worst character all around. Slow movement, low jumps, weak attacks, and are two characters when I think that should not be allowed.

I would recommend not practicing with these characters ever. Practice with somebody that fits your needs (if you want a speedy character, or somebody with powerful attacks). I have played ssbb (and ssbm) ...more

I hate how every other caracter claps even when they lose but these little idiots start crying like babies - arcanine

1 you spelled character wrong, 2 Nintendo might want the ice climbers to cry when they loose

The worst in the game, Jigglypuff should be number 2 with this as number 1. These guys were so awful that they aren't even in the newer ones! - doctorman

Honestly, I am very disappointed with Mario. I love him on every other game BUT this one. He is WEAK. Very sad considering how well he does in other games. In this all he can do is punch, kick, shoot flames. Nothing compared to other mario games. Where is the world renown ground pound? I can't even use him, to weak - dragonfly99

Agreed bro. He is very generically used and put up as someone "super".

I like him on every game except this! He's really weak! All he does is either kick/punch or shoot flames at people! I still love the Mario games and himself! But not on Smash Brothers Brawl! Sorry Mario! But you should leave this game if they make a Super Smash Brothers Brawl 2!

You guys don't even have proper reasons to say Mario sucks. "too weak" He's supposed to be an all-around character for Smash beginners. What the actual hell are you guys even complaining about?

Mario isn't really weak, but he isn't the best character. He is kinda cheap and needs better moves, but I believe it's all about the player, if you can master him and make him boss, then yes, he rules

No no no he's awesome

Yoshi is the best

Who would put YOSHI on this list? YOSHI is awesome

What?! Why should he even be here?

8Diddy Kong

Ok first off, that guy just called Olimar, Oliver. So he obviously knows nothng about this game. Now let me say this, Diddy Kong isn't officially ranked as the second best character next to Meta Knight for no reason. He has amazing recovery, great utility, quick attacks, and average knockout ability. If you know how to use him, you win.

First up, there is no such thing as a "terrible" character, there are just ones that you like or don't like. I love playing as Olimar. Diddy Kong isn't a bad character, he's just one I don't like.

When you pause the game and look at his face while being hit by someone or something, his pupils shrink and he looks like an idiot! No matter if his mouth is closed or open. Plus he's really weak! Even weaker than Oliver! This should be higher on the list!

Everyone who voted Diddy on here is a complete noob. Diddy is one of the BEST (that's right I said best) characters in the game. His bananas allow his ground game to be absurdly good.

He can run fast, jump high, throw bananas that usually don't appear, is a lightweight, and even OLIMAR is weaker than him.

He's the only playable character from MOTHER besides Ness

I might as well get a smash ball and say:


What's so good about Lucas being the only playable character from MOTHER besides Ness?

I think anyone who thinks a character is bad clearly never plays as them but if you PRACTICE with that character you will actually notice that there good and you weren't using him right.

He is good if you practice enough

I love Lucas! Whoever put him on the list must eat snails for breakfast tomorrow!

I have a friend and whenever somebody chooses ROB his game breaks. I think he said it crashes and you have to restart the game. I don't mind, though. ROB stinks anyway. I just feel like he's really difficult to move around as and slow.

Come on. Who actually favors this bland character over all the others? He's just... A robot. Sure some of his moves are good, especially his recovery, but his Final Smash? No. How are people supposed to get excited by some robot nobody knows getting into a fighting game when there's other great choices?

He is my absolute fave and if he was real he would KILL you in your sleep

There is a very strong reason why my friends and I call him Really-Obviously-Bad - bigbrotherfan

Why Is ROB Is On The list? He is a great character. How dare you put him on the list.

The Contenders

11King Dedede

What? King Dedede shouldn't be on this list, because he's AWESOME, I mean, OK, maybe the first time is a bit difficult, but only the first time, once your get used to him, he's awesome, I mean, he runs fast despite being heavy and he has supreme attacks with is wooden hammer. And his chain grab is AWESOME!

KING DEDEDE for the win!

Yes! Thank you! Some person called him sexy one time! He's not even sexy! He's just a stupid, dumb, unintelligent, greedy dumbass and hates escargoon and Kirby for no damn reason! And he is super slow and weak! He just sucks! And how is a blue penguin sexy!? He sucks bad he makes jiggly puff look strong! He is the only character along with wario I despise! And he is just so annoying and treats everyone like trash! Enough said

He's the worst character I've ever seen in history! He is very fast (sarcasm) and it creates special brown stuff (but do not mistake-_-). He is strong (seriously) but it is very slow, slow, slow to make the attacks. To me, he should be the first! Jigglypuff should not be first, he is up to no good, but only if you play well with him. And Olimar should not be 4! He's good too!

I Like Him Better In Smash 4.

Wario is so damn annoying.

I always hated wario and his farting!

He farts. enough said.

Why is he even in the game, know what? He and peach could be good friends, they both fight with their butt.

V30 Comments

Hell no! Have you ever seen his super power thingymabobber? Its awesome dude! He has this really awesome attack where he can smash people with his spikes. He shouldn't be on this list because he is BAD-ASS! Maybe his son though, that kid sucks

What? Bowser does NOT act evil to get popular! You should see how badass he is! Also bowser jr rocks!

He has a great ground pound

V7 Comments

If you don't know how to use him you can easily end up hurting yourself...

Snake has a great up+B move but everything else is just really annoying, especially his down+A or down+B move, which he uses way too much time to carry out. An opponent could easily run over and attack him then.

This guy suck I keep getting hit as him final smash the players could just walk from it

Don't hate him. Hate link, Ike (sometimes), toon link, and captain falcon

He just hides in a box waiting for someone to find him

Whoever said Zelda sucks is an idiot and hasn't figured out how to use her side b which may be the cheapest move in the game as you can attack from the opposite end of a stage in a lot of cases as well as get smash balls from a range- something people tend to undervalue- it's so much easier to get if you aren't chasing it with 2 or 3 people on you. If you use it correctly you can literally hit people off the top of the screen and they can't dodge no matter what. That and the air kick she does can kill at about 55%. She should be at the bottom of this list.

Dude Zelda should not be on this list I won classic with her 5 times on INTENSE! She's awesome! She can turn into Sheik and go all Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris on your butts!

Personally I think zelda is a great character you just need to know how to use her

Zelda is the worst character

I have not got to get use to him and he is the slowest next to Gannondorf. That fire is useless for me. You should like Pikachu and Lucario.

Of course he is low. Charizard can beat the hell out of you. Especially if I'm playing as him.

Well, I am a bad Super Smash Bros player, (got it last week) but I'm best with Charizard. I like his power... forget that I'm undersized in real life, in Super Smash Bros I can be epic! My highest amount of KO's is 25, all thanks to my Charizard. - Shivershade

I like Charizard but one of his moves can kill him

17Captain Falcon

He's a good fighter, but makes stupid noises whenever he does anything

Captain Falcon can spam Raptor Boost to continuously hit slow characters in the air and follow them on the ground because he is fast. Captain Falcon can destroy people and their souls with his spam.

WRONG! If you learn to play as him he is very versatile. - MyRockets345

He is good but the Falco Punch is too overpowered. Only one hit with it can kill an opponent.

V10 Comments

Wolf is awesome and so cool one of the reasons it's so hard to get is because it's final smash Is so strong and also it's moves are awesome

If you're too far from the edge, you're doomed!

Why I hate Wolf? He is a villain, and I HATE VILLAINS! Not as bad as Bowser though.

The website put an actual picture of a wolf, not Star Wolf lol - cjWriter1997

19Zero Suit Samus

Not too girly like Peach, but what does she do besides shoot people? But she is sneaky and saved Pikachu. Peach would stand there and cry and run if she's in that position of saving toad.

How dare you... I, I, I, I can't look t this site anymore. I hate you, you haters. Now just... Look away... While I go cry in a corner...😭😭😭😭😪😪😥😥

Zero suit samus is cool but not so good at fighting

I don't care what the tier list says, he my 2nd least favorite character in the game, first being Ganondorf. I wanted to like him, but he is so weak, and he's not fun. At least the characters at the top of this list such as Yoshi, Olimar, Wario, Peach, and dare I say it, Jigglypuff are more fun to play as then Lucario. And no I don't dislike lucario because I suck with him, I suck with Snake, but I like playing as him.

Lucario is amazing! He can do max damage at 300% or higher.His up smash does 39%.That's even more powerful than Ike's eruption! In fact, he shouldn't be 11th! HE SHOULD BE 7TH.

He gets killed easily!
