The Top Ten

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
[Newest]I always play as Jigglypuff
More comments about Jigglypuff

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.
The pikmin are some of the best games ever, but how do you even use this guy when in the games his minions did virtually all of the work? This is an awful character, you can't move around and hit people! He can't do anything but a final smash [which is one of the cheapest (lets bad players win) concepts in video game history! OLIMAR IS NOTHING!


[Newest]Oh I hate the audience call

3Princess 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.
[Newest]The game would be better if she wasn't in the game!

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 lots of practice and luck to be effective, more so than anybody else.


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.
[Newest]I love ganondorf 😍😍😘😘

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) for quite a while, and ice climbers have been one of the easiest opponents for me.
I hate how every other caracter claps even when they lose but these little idiots start crying like babies


1 you spelled character wrong, 2 Nintendo might want the ice climbers to cry when they loose
[Newest]They look like they are 6! 6 YEARS OLD! They are babies because they cry after loosing a match. Olimar just stood there...

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


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?


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
[Newest]Everyone say's he's a clone of Ness. NO!

No no no he's awesome
Yoshi is the best
Who would put YOSHI on this list? YOSHI is awesome
[Newest]Whoever made this list is just crazy!

9Diddy 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.
[Newest]He looks disappointed when he loses, like the Ice Climbers.

Wario is so damn annoying.
I always hated wario and his farting!
He farts. enough said.
[Newest]Hey! You need to realize that wario is a good character but sure his farts are nasty and bite people bUT look at kirby, dedede and yoshi! They eat people alive! While wario don't swallows people!

The Contenders

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
[Newest]Look at Zelda! Her thighs are huge in general for a human!

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

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


[Newest]He sucks. If you use every attack he will just deal like 12 damage!

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!
Bowser has a great final smash his smash attacks are really strong Bowsers down special is Bowser bomb wich is way more power full than yoshis ground pound

15Captain 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.


[Newest]He should be #1. sorry C. Falcon fans, but it is true.

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.


[Newest]I like Charizard but one of his moves can kill him

17King 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!
[Newest]I'd like to see any of you face off against me as Dedede!

Not true! Sonic is the best of them all! You all need time to woke with him! True, Sonic is fast to kill, but Sonic can kill that main bad guy in 3 min.
Best Guy He Kicked Mega Bowser's In A Blink He Rock's Stop Saying He's Bad
Sonic is actually a pretty good character. He is a lightweight so he get's knocked back easier, but you have to use his speed to your advantage. And if you get good at dodging in air and ground, you have a better chance of avoiding most attacks. His attacks lie in his speed. Most fight's I win is because I play as sonic. Depends on the type of characters your used to though. If you can't play as fast characters, then your better off using someone like Ike or Falco (he is pretty good to) but you have to know how to use the characters. Just my longgg longgg opinion.


[Newest]Why is he on the list!? Apart from the face that he's too fast?

Ness is AMAZING! He is so awesome he has a wicked smash attack
You can just spam with him and get your opponent to 232% easily... I've done it.
Ness is a crappy idiot 5 year old boy. he just squawks and squeals like a chipmunk on AIDS. I mean, in SSF2, he hurts himself with PK thunder so he can get back on the field. Pathetic. Oh and his starstorm what I can easily avoid that by going over to the damn side. He is so crappy and weak, why would all mother fan like mother it's such a crappy game!

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!
The only problems are the final smash clone and his crowd cheers!
[Newest]He has the same smash as Falco and Fox...

21Zero 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.
Zero suit samus is cool but not so good at fighting
She suck and she very cruel and dumb she bring back Mario, luigi, wario, waluigi, mm54321, ll09876, and candycao7 evil doopelgangers back to life by a time machine

Don't look at this one if you like Falco. FALCO ROCKS!
Falco is just a crappy version of Fox. Fox was here first, Falco needs to die.


I personally think that Falcons sucks

23Meta Knight
Meta is obviously the best character. Only a failure could have put him on this list.
How is meta knight, Kirby, link, toon link, and lucario on this list? They are my favorites, and boss! Kirby sucks people in my mouth, and rapid punches, lucario is boss, meta knight has a tornado and rapid strike, toon link has everything you need, and link same thing, that's why they shouldn't be here.
He is the cheapest character, just saying
[Newest]YA! He is my favorite HOW DARE YOU!

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.
This is the worst and the weakest player in history. Lucario's attacks at weak, boring, and the worst
Final smash ever.
At least he is better in the new smash game. Now Olimar is the worst.

Its funny how every one of these (execpt zelda orincess peach, mario, luigi, and rob are good) these characters are some of the best in brawl. the reason why you hate them so much is because they are so hard to control. Olimar takes pure strategy and skill. diddy kong is really good. ness and ice climbers are SO HARD TO BEAT AT LV. 9. the sames true for olimar and DK (diddy kong) I say that olimar is the best.
Luigi does not suck you suck
Luigi's has amazing attacks and an amazing final smash. His b-side is good and if you do it right his b-up is amazing! His c-stick moves are good and he can punch well. Luigi's is not awful!
[Newest]He literally kills every one with his down taunt how surprising is that? We'll if a enemy is hanging on the ledge just use luigi down taunt to meteor mash them to the ground. How shocking!

Once you train with him and learn how to use all his moves you can't lose with him

I believe that Enrique Iglesias would be a great voice for Pit from Kid Icarus just like how Pitbull aka Armando Christian Perez would be a great voice for Shadow the Hedgehog.

Pit's new height: 6'1".

Pit's new weight: 198 pounds.

Pit's new width: 1'7".

Shadow the Hedgehog's new height: 9'9".

Shadow the Hedgehog's new weight: 154 pounds.

Shadow the Hedgehog's new width: 1'0".

That would be awesome!
I hope Pit shuts his mouth! Kid Icarus: Uprising is bad anyways, and besides, he does not deserve to be on Archie Comics. Another feeling is that I believe that Pit should be on Archie Comics. He needs a better voice actor such as Eminem.
I used pit 24/7. I think he's really good.

28Pokemon Trainer
This guy is Red the most legendary Pokemon trainer ever
Whoever votes for Pokemon trainer, GO TO HELL!
He is aweosme you can go to hell he is one of the best bro

29Mr. Game and Watch
You kidding me? Mr. Game & Watch is my favorite, and has kept that status since Melee. He's got a whole lot of potential, and hecklers like most of the people who commented before me just aren't giving him a chance at all.
Why is he on this list to start with? I could go on for hours.
Mr. Game and Watch is so lame Nintendo should quit being nostalgic and think of a real character, he was not even important to the story, they used him to make R.O.B. clones, so even Nintendo knows he's lame. , his move are boring, and his place has to be the dullest area to fight in who wants to be 2d, and fight in his video game.

Olimar- is a bad fighter, but he is useable, I like seeing the face on people when I win with him.

Ganondwarf- you think they would give him a sword, and not make him a knock-off captain falcon

This guy is awesome. If used correctly he can almost be as broken as Meta Knight.
I love pikachu I think he is really strong. He is an awesome and adorable. HE SHOULD NOT BE ON THIS LIST.
Pikachu is awesome why is he even in the list. Once you get the hang of his maga move he kills everbody. I like pie
Why are they keep one putting good characters one this list! I love pikachu!

Waluigi isn't a playable character stupid
Who in the hell put waluigi here?
You change luigi's colors to do that, change him to purple
[Newest]Waluigi isn't a playable character.

Ivysaur is impossible to use for melee. and bad for ranged so.

Dude he's just awesome
Like I said Greninja Replace SQUIRTLE Already As A Single WATER Ninja Pokemon

34Samus Aran
Her moves are pretty good to, and it is nice that she is farirly floaty even though her suit makes her heavy

No, curse the people who hate Link. Link is awesome, cool, and he is my best character out of all of the characters in the whole series. You just need to figure out how to use him correctly. Once you figure it out he is pretty tough. But still, screw you people, just screw you.
I don't get why everyone thinks link sucks. He is really strong and as others said, if you can use him correctly, he is beast. Sure he is at the bottom of THIS list but for some reason, others think he sucks. His Hylian shield will block any projectile and sure fox's does that too and more but fox isn't nearly as powerful.
Why is Link on the List? He is one of my favourite characters:(

36Mama Weegee
This isn't any ordinary trolling. This is... ADVANCED trolling.
Mama wee gee lol

Never heard of him before


Take him off this list. They have to exist is brawl as a playable characters to be on here. There are more charachters here than in the game itself.
Don't you mean luigi

Sheik is another hermaphrodite.
Better version of Zelda but is kinda annoying

39Porky Minch
Whoever's putting the fake characters, go to hell.
He's not part of the game, but I still hate him

Whoever did this, stop. She's not in the game. I mean, really, birdo.

If you're the bastard putting fake-ass characters here, find a nice dark ditch, and just stay there. I'm not saying you need to kill yourself. I'm just telling you to stay away from this website...

We only get a Rosalina reference, not an actual Rosalina appearance.

Rosalina is much fairer than the overrated Princess Peach whose reviews are overly positive for such a sucky fluke character. Why didn't Rosalina replace Princess Peach in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series & Mario Party 9 & even Mario Sports Mix! Also, White Mage is an ass.
She shouldn't be in Smash Bros.
She suck! But her in the top ten

Been Confirmed as a Secret Character and Unlock the ONES ON THE Website then Get the REST OF THE Secret Characters

44Michael Jackson
Why is HE on the list?

45Waddle Dee
Very weak moveset, poor recovery, and has trouble hitting other players with little range or attack speed. He is the only character who doesn't have a final smash, and he does not participate in the Subspace Emissary in any way. I think that Waddle Dee is just a poor sport in not showing up at all.

46Princess Daisy
Why wouldn't she be playable in the Super Smash Bros. series yet?

47Giga Bowser
Giga Bowser Koopa vs. Giga Knuckles the Echidna

Giga Bowser's voice actor: Kieran Glen Harris Stark. Giga Bowser will have a very deep & hyper-masculine English accent.

Giga Knuckles's voice actor: Mitchell Kuester. Giga Knuckles will have a very deep & masculine broken accent.
Final Smash Ok Please Stop putting the Giga Bowser in is Getting Very Uncomfortable for Us

48Grey Fox

49Big Boss

He was great in Smash Flash 2, so he shouldn't be on the list



53Duck Hunt

54Wii Fit Trainer

55Donkey Kong
They're working with Namco

56Toon Link
HA! Toon link is amazing!... At least played right. I play as toon link and frequently beat level 9's. I was able to beat level 5's the first time I played. I think your chart is some what based on opinion.
He wins most annoying character easily! His abilities are mediocre compared to Link, and the different animation is really irritating.
I love Toon Link and Link they're super powerful. I think Toon Link the best character. He's strong and he is hard to hit and his final smash is powerful.
[Newest]Toon Link should not be on this list.

Kirby is awesome. The only people who say he is bad are the people that can't use him.
Kirby is my favorite character! If you say that he sucks, then I'll order Kirby to suck you up and not spit you out. I'll just order Kirby to swallow you whole, LIKE AN ENEMY!
A big ball can get you so much in life
[Newest]Kirby is the worst character ever. He is bad, I don't understand why a lot of people like him.

He help me beat jigglypuff, toon link, and wolf
Terrible swordsman, too fast, not enough recovery.

Why put Ike here, his very very powerful, he can launch his enemies with 40 percent
HE IS AWESOME! But slow. Very slow.
Ike is one of the badass and hard hitting characters in brawl.
