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!
Jigglypuff is a really stupid and weak character here's why all her attacks suck and here's why your using the b roll attack people can jump right over it and you can roll off the edge and kill yourself and if you get knocked away and try to come back by rolling in the air people can move closer to dodge it then jump over. Jigglypuffs final smash sucks you knock people away but they can jump back up and if your in a big level people can run easily and if it's a moving level you can kill yourself with it. Jigglypuffs side b slap attack is awful it doesn't do anything. Jigglypuffs sing attack is useless people wake up before you stop singing and they can get you. The sleep attack has to have a direct hit to do anything at all and still it's a sucky attack. And another thing jigglypuff is really light so its is easy to knock her off the edge. And to top it all off people online use jigglypuff to cheat you can fly under the stage and fly from side to side to dodge people and bombs in sudden deaths and that is cheating. That's why jigglypuff needs to be kicked out because her attacks are weak and suck and people use jigglypuff to cheat to win online. That's why jigglypuff needs to be kicked out and if you think jigglypuff is a perfect cute strong character then you're crazy.
Jigglypuff is a really sucky character nothing about Jigglypuff is good people say Jigglypuff is good cause they think she is so cute Jigglypuff is not cute to me all of Jigglypuff's move are bad your using the b roll attack people can jump right over it and you roll of the edge and kill yourself your rolling in the air the other players can move closer to dodge it Jigglypuff's final smash sucks big time you push people away but they can jump back if your in a big place like the temple or new pork city people can easily run away from it and if its in a moving level you can kill yourself Jigglypuff is nothing but an overused joke she should have been gone by now. I have never met a Jigglypuff online I can't beat Jigglypuff is a very bad fighter and is too easy to knock off cause she is not heavy one bit and her colors look stupid and her taunts are annoying Jigglypuff's sing attack is useless the people wake up before you stop singing so they can get you Jigglypuff can also dodge sudden deaths bye flying under the stage and flying from side to side and that's cheating people use Jigglypuff to cheat to win and that's not fair Jigglypuff needs to be kicked out for the next super smash bros game cause she IS USELESS IN EVERY SINGLE WAY. That's all thanks for reading bye.
Ok out of all the Pokemon you could choose why choose jiggly puff I mean wouldn't it be cooler if you could choose charmander or chimchar?
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.
I can not win with him. He's completely useless. His attacks are weak close attacks and his only good attack is his final smash.
Olimar is pretty good if you learn how to use him. His pikmin always kick butt, so never say Olimar sucks.

3Princess Peach
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.
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!
Peach does not desrve to be here she is. Awesome and much better than Zelda

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.

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?
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


No one cares about them. Oh, and their taunts are the most annoying of all.

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


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!
Mario is only a little better if you know how to use him but he sucks sorry mario
More comments about Mario


He's the only playable character from MOTHER besides Ness

I might as well get a smash ball and say:

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
LUCAS IS AWESOME! Another character on this list who has amazing moves. All you need to do iis practise with him and you will see his true potential.
More comments about Lucas

Wario is so damn annoying.
I always hated wario and his farting!
He farts. enough said.
Knuckles would punch him.
More comments about Wario

No no no he's awesome
Yoshi is the best
Who would put YOSHI on this list? YOSHI is awesome
Yoshi is awsesome! How dare you!

10Diddy 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.
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!
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.

The Contenders

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!
Everybody likes this guy even though he's just a boring gypsy who acts evil to get more popular. But Bowser Jr. , that kid sucks.

12Captain Falcon
He's a good fighter, but makes stupid noises whenever he does anything
Just awful. I'm done.
I main captain falcon in every super smash bros but this incarnation sucks he is a bottem tier character and with good reason. With out wave dashing l-canceling and moon walking falcon is horrible he recieved a few upgrades from melee but he paid for it by having the knee nerfed and his nipple spike removed and that is just barely scratching the surface of why he is one of the worst characters in brawl buy melee or download project m if you want to play as falcon

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
More comments about Zelda

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


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.
More comments about Rob

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
More comments about Snake

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.


More comments about Sonic

Of course he is low. Charizard can beat the hell out of you. Especially if I'm playing as him.
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.
I need to get off of here, as practically everybody are REALLY ANNOYING AND STUPID noobs. That aside, Charizard is a decent character, as he's very powerful. Err... Yeah, he's actually kinda bad...

18King 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!

Ness is AMAZING! He is so awesome he has a wicked smash attack
His attacks sucks ness fail of a character


Ness is the defitnition of pointless we have a terrible character from a terrible series horrible and weak attacks he never shuts up his final smash sucks he has the worst recovery don't use ness

20Zero 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
More comments about Zero Suit Samus

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
The only problems are the final smash clone and his crowd cheers!
If you're too far from the edge, you're doomed!

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!
More comments about Luigi

23Meta Knight
Meta is obviously the best character. Only a failure could have put him on this list.
He is the cheapest character, just saying
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.
More comments about Meta Knight

Don't look at this one if you like Falco. FALCO ROCKS!
He stinks but not much but he haves a same smash ball as fox and his counter attack you throw a blue thing I like foxes better because it goes around him any way when falco wins sometimes he fall from the sky I only like is that he shoots laser I want him out of the game **** you falco!

This is the worst and the weakest player in history. Lucario's attacks at weak, boring, and the worst
Final smash ever.
He gets killed easily!

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

I used pit 24/7. I think he's really good.

28Mr. Game and Watch
Y out guys are saying mr game and watch because he is easy to ko. Oh wait he isn't easy to ko. So you guys saying he sucks is retarded.
He's terrible. Plain old moves, and whats with the frying pan? He should at least be 3D. Although there was no comment needed really

29Pokemon Trainer

Whoever votes for Pokemon trainer, GO TO HELL!
He is aweosme you can go to hell he is one of the best bro

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

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

32Naked Snake
He's actually snake in this game as it has naked snakes eye color from MGS 3 but has the MGS 2 solid snake body this is very lazy Nintendo
He not real in the game. no one ever seen him

This character sucks, he takes damage from his own lightning attacks.
Why does take damage when I attack?!
The absolute worst fighter in history (except for Shaq in Shaq-Fu)

35Samus Aran

I would like Pacman to be in brawl because he is awesome
He's in SSB4. So you can vote here if you played the best buy demo.
I hope he doesn't have his classic voice in SSB4.

37Porky Minch
Whoever's putting the fake characters, go to hell.

Dude he's just awesome

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.
Why is Link on the List? He is one of my favourite characters:(
Well that's dumb he is actually a super powerful fighter. And has a powerful power. I personally think he's the best out of all of them put together!
More comments about Link

What the crap he isn't even a character. Neither is Porky or Pac-Man.

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...

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

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.
Wow what a real charecter I laugh out loud'd

44Mama Weegee
This isn't any ordinary trolling. This is... ADVANCED trolling.
Who is this? Too many fake charachters.
I agree with you, man. O_o

She shouldn't be in Smash Bros.
She's a awful character.


Well... she's going to be in smash bros 4. But she's not in brawl.

Stop posting fake characters.


47Waddle 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.


48Princess Daisy
Why wouldn't she be playable in the Super Smash Bros. series yet?


50Giga Bowser


52Grey Fox

53Big Boss

54Donkey Kong
They're working with Namco
His final smash sucks

Sheik is he wirst

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.
More comments about Toon Link

Kirby is awesome. The only people who say he is bad are the people that can't use him.
A big ball can get you so much in life
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!
More comments about Kirby

HE IS AWESOME! But slow. Very slow.
Worst character in the game. He straight up sucks. Zero suit samus, Lucario, and Falco are the best.

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