The Top Ten

1 Meta Knight Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash ...read more.

Meta Knight is easily the best character in the game. His moves are super fast and he has the best frame rate. He can also glide and especially go underneath the stage and teleport, he also has 4 recovery options and all 4 are the best in the game, as well as infinite jumps because he can fly, he can even outrange other characters even though he's about 2 feet tall. He's so overpowered that you aren't even allowed to use him in tournaments.

I can rock his chain grab, and his combos are great because his moves are so fast. You can also spam his Mach Tornado, tho this is not a reliable strat.

Okay, I have something to say people. I'm Only voting for Meta Night because he's the first one people read and I need this to be spoken: WHERE IS ROSALINA ON THIS DANG LIST!? She's the best! She's like the only one not on this list. The ICE CLIMBERS are on and not her! How can I vote if my character isn't on? She's the most powerful, strongest, enchanting, magical, and attractive. She's the only character I win at! I love her dresses and her voice. Plus the antigravity move and the grand star. I'm ticked off at all of you (except you Rosalina lovers or people who think she should be on this list). It has everyone else on it except for her. Put her on the list or at least tell me how to put her on.

Meta Knight may not be as strong but it goes to show you that strength isn't everything. His recovery and speed makes up for the loss of his power (including his smash). I'm surprised that others don't see this. Using Mk is tricky but can become deadly if you know how to use him well. On a one on one playing field he rules the battle but up against three is challenging and even much more challenging if you are on a small stage. Up against projectiles is also very difficult if your using Mk.
But there is a reason why I prefer him out of everyone. Not only is he the most mysterious but he suits how I play. I loved how I got a challenge in using a character that's not all about power. He doesn't need to be weakened nor have more strength in the new game (if he is in it that is). He is perfect as he is and a great challenge for those who are playing him or up against him as an opponent. This shows that power and smashes isn't everything. Its how you use your character that makes all ...more

2 Ike Ike is the main character in the video game Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance for the Nintendo GameCube and one of the main characters of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn for the Wii.

Ike is definitely underrated. People think he's so slow but that's only because they play really swift characters all the time. Ike is pretty quick and all his attacks are really strong. Sometimes, you can even get a KO with just his side tilt. His side smash is slow but it's like the best in the game. It's hit box is huge! His up smash covers almost every side of him and it's super strong. His final smash is just amazing and all though it only does 50%, you can still get a KO since Ike is really strong anyway. Ike should be #1

Ike is the best character by far. If you put him in shadow Moses island he will always win. Any character. Any level. in shadow Moses if you keep pressing A and block at least some attacks you will definitely WIN. Heres my stradegy I break the left wall of shadow Moses and then I get as close as possible without going too far with the character right to the left of me and press A. And don't even get me started on his special move. When ike yells great Ethan consider yourself dead. Well hope you try my strategy. Bye.

Ike's the best guy I've used, because he may be slow, but he is the character who deals the most damage with a counter attack in handy. I have to say, being slow can make life tough against Ike, but he doesn't give up until he's blasted everyone off the battlefield. I switch characters every now and then for them to be my best guy, but I've stopped at Ike and now he is my #1 dude in super smash bros. No wonder my best guys are all from Fire Emblem!

Ike has an amazing range with his sword, and combined with the power of it he is unstoppable. He can easily knock someone across the battlefield, putting himself effectively out of their reach. Then, using his dash attack, he can quickly get to them and send them off the map. His recovery is terrible, but it's nothing to worry about if your enemy is constantly being beaten down. This makes Ike my all time favorite.

3 Kirby Kirby is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. His first game was created in 1992, and the pink puffball has made his way into the hearts of fans of all ages.

I always play as Kirby. It's probably since I thought he was cute in SSBM, and got really good at him. I guess that could happen with any character, but I'm glad I picked Kirby because he's pretty awesome.
First of all, I'm pretty sure he can punch literally forever. So if you corner your enemy and start punching, you can get a lot of damage in.
Plus, he can fly, which is a must have for a lot of people. Some characters can only jump once and can't fly at all, and that means if you start to fall, you're dead. Not with Kirby.
There's pretty much only one thing that isn't good about Kirby, and that's that he doesn't have any range attacks. The special thing about Kirby is that he can use b (I use a gamecube controller) to eat people and take the attack that they use b for. So if that attack is ranged, then problem solved.

Kirby is definitely one of my favorite characters from melee to brawl because of amazing recovery, many KO moves, zero-death combos, good ground game, amazing aerial game, and his FENCE OF PAIN! Although he may be lightweight, slow, and not have the best roll, Kirby is easy to use for beginners and very intimidating. His moveset is versatile and is made even more versatile because of is swallow and copy move, making Kirby a very solid and well rounded character.

Pros
Amazing air game
Good Ground game
B air is Fence of Pain
Many KO moves
Many Combos
A lot of Range for F Smash
Amazing Recovery

Cons
Lightweight
Below average dash
Slow rolling

Bottom Line: His pros outshine his cons.

Kirby? What is it? Well Kirby is a quick character he's light and he can kill you with his RED FOOT OF JUstice. He is pretty quick for cream puff the only thing that slows him down is his hammer I recommend using the hammer in the air you get 2 swings instead of 1 when used on the ground. Kirby can also fly which is pretty useful because since he's super light he can get blasted pretty far from the stage which is the only problem really other than that he's just Fun to play with

I love Kirby! He is totally the best! I use Kirby all the time! Most of his attacks are strong, but the ones that are weak make up in speed. Kirby is also very fast, and he can jump really high. His special attacks are very strong, plus he can copy other characters special abilitys. And along with him being a great character, he is very easy to use. I would recommend Kirby to everybody.

4 Sonic Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic is the best because of two things: his speed and jump. These allow him to travel across the map very quickly, enabling him to get items first and run away from characters with hammers and other dangerous items. His moves are also very useful, including the ability to combo with a spin dash, pass through them, and travel across the map all in 2 seconds. His final smash is also rated as the best out there, and it's for a good reason. On his home fighting arena, he's even more badass because his spin roll/spin move makes him practically teleport. And since he's so fast and agile, he's almost always the one getting the smash ball. It's almost cheating to use Sonic.

When I use Sonic, I usually win most of the time. Whether it's items or no items, I usually win a lot with Sonic. Sometimes when I play stock, I knock out the level 9 computer's first stock without taking any damage. That's how good I am with Sonic. Sure he may be lightweighted, but it doesn't matter because his speed makes up for it. You can deal a lot of damage when you use the spin charge and you can also deal a lot of damage when you use the aerial spin charge. When you're in midair and your opponent is charging his or her up smash, you can cancel his or her up smash by using Sonic's spring jump. When you get Sonic's final smash, YOU ARE SO SCREWED. It's impossible to survive Sonic's final smash because it has great speed, invulnerable, and you can't die using him. The only problem with Sonic's final smash is that it will be hard for the player to control. But if you can control him well, then there is no escape. And just like Sonic's final smash problem, the only problem you will ...more

Oh yeah!? Then I challenge you to a battle on my house! You use sonic and Lucas

Personally, Sonic is the best character in the game and I can't believe that he isn't first. His speed is awesome and that's the main reason why I even like him because I am pro with fast characters like Meta Knight (my second best) and you can do heaps of damage rapidly by doing heaps of combos with his spin charge and by dodging so quickly and easily. I never lost a match with Sonic, items or no items, and I even played against 3 level 9 computers that were a team and I smashed them so hard. When I take on a level 9 computer I usually take their first two stocks out with only like 0%-10% damage (LIKE A PRO). He may be hard to control at first but when you get the hang of it, you'll be unstoppable. His final smash is so FRCIKIN overpowered (even though other final smashes are more powerful) and it may be hard to control but when you know how to control it... UNSTOPPABLE! Sonic is so badass when you use him in his home arena but if you use him in a tight arena (like Donkey Kong's home ...more

My main in Brawl, Sonic. So fast that it makes his opponents annoyed since Brawl is slower paced. I love his famous taunt "Your too slow! ", captures Sonic's attitude perfectly. I love using his Dacus, very useful for mix up and approach options and can be spam to annoy your opponents even more. As much as Snake is also very unique and great, I'd have to choose the annoying and "In your face" kinda dude right here. And DON'T get my started on putting on the smash ball HA! nobody has a chance to get it when Sonic's around. Sonic, Snake and Ike are my reasons I love Brawl, my first smash bros game and still to this day, doesn't disappoint me, brings back many great and fun memories :) - Roy Kuchiki

5 Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

Great character- his attack where he plants a bomb and then detonates it is just op if you use it the right way. Also his special jump attack is really useful. And the final smash is epic. Oh yea, he also has a cool Easter egg (Easter egg is a term in video games which means "a secret" for those who don't know) which can only be done in shadow moses island map (it's done by quickly pressing buttons 1 and 2 and the same time then repeatedly pressing button 2) where he has a codec message with either otacon, mei ling or roy campbell about the character he's fighting and the conversations are pretty interesting even though they're useless. Plus they're hilarious with some characters like luigi and even when your fighting another snake.P. S they only work once in a brawl and will fail if you are hit before you manage to do it.

Snake is AWESOME! I think he should be number 1. He is better then Mega Night anyway. a lot of people like the character they like because there good at using that character. But with Snake I'm going to only use facts. 1. He has more control over his speed (unlike sonic,) and his recovery is flying witch makes it easier to recover because you have complete control over your recover (unlike Ike.)
He's fighting abilitys are about as fast as Links many a little slower but powerfuler. His 1 button ability (if your holding the remote sideways) are verry powerful. He has a a lot which makes him cool. Oh and by the way, Kirbys only cool because he can copy abilitys. Besides that he SUCKS. Snake is also cool because he has long and close range weapons Plues mines and Manu gernard. His final smash is easy to control (unlike pekachue) and dose a lot of push back damage. This is why I think Snake is truely the BEST CHARACTER EVER!

P.S his recovery is almost as good as pits
please ...more

Snake is an extremely sneaky character. He has an excellent crawling ability which allows him to dodge long range attacks. He also has great attacks. These include explosives such as the grenade. He also has a great kick. This is why snake is the best ssbb character.

Snake was just so OP, that I did such amazing stuff that made me put my controller down in shock. Unfortunately, Smash 4 didn't want Snake in there, but it was probably because he was too OP.

6 Falco Falco Lombardi is an anthropomorphic bird character from the Star Fox series of video games. He was created by Shigeru Miyamoto and designed by Takaya Imamura. Falco acts as the wingman and friend of title character Fox McCloud for the majority of the series.

My personal favorite is Toon Link, but fighting three other expert users in a 10 minute brawl match, he's the only one to accomplish 25 kills. Granted it was the Cornaria stage, however his B left/right and block made him nearly (again experts using snake, kirby, and Lucas) invincible with all the items flying around (bombs, bats swords, etc). He can counter everything with little precision. He's also very quick. He does lack strength if you don't charge a swing, but a little bit of practice he's nearly unstoppable.. Even fighting him as the CPU is frustrating when your at 75% and he reflects you off an edge enabling you from recovery.
All characters are outstanding in their own right, however Falco has a lot of advantages especially when items are flying everywhere. When a sun is circling the the platform you can always that bastard to counter your hit and reflect the sun back at you without giving you any time to react. Yes this is just my opinion, but he does significantly ...more

Falco has been a personal favorite of mine ever since I used him in Melee, I used his jumping abilities to aim to do a perfect interception, and other aerial attacks in general, causing me to defeat the giga bowser challange in melee 7 times! (each time I won, I got a new record every time) and in the giga mario challenge, it was easier then the boswer challenge that you had to complete to get the mario one!, and I never lost on my first try! With or without using weapons, I bring level 9 computers down and out just as easy in Melee, plus I love how falcos desisn has enhanced and that he has more colors then when he did in Melee, He's is my number one no matter how Ike and Capt. Falcon bring up my next favorites. Falco's Final Smash is a TANK! Come on, who doesn't love tanks? Its hover ability surpasses fox's tank and last longer then Wolf's! I'm just glad falco got on the top 10 as the lucky number 7 by the wayXD

The final smash isn't a tank it is called land master and If it would be a tank it wouldn't fly

Falco is so boss! His down b can attack, and block! He's so much better and cooler than fox, and wolf! His final smash is way better than wolfs, and fox's! If he could fly like a falcon, he would definitely be the best character ever!

Falco is a lot like Fox, he has his recovery, and his blaster, and his little key chain projectile shield.

7 Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Link Is Either A God Or above average character his moves can knock out ike in an instant he has a great grapple hook to help him recover back to the stage if a Skilled Player That Uses A Gamecube controller Link Would be the best character and can take on the world in one match that's how awesome he is. But Link Should be #1 Not Some Pink Garbage. But IF you want to be link it needs good amount of training and valuable skill to make Link A GOD. Link Is My Main Character and he can beat anyone!

He is really a great fighter. Link is my best character on Nintendo, his skills is beyond reckoning because he has a good mixture of speed and strength. In my beginning of my play through I used to choose link most of the time to help me finish subspace emissary. I am pretty much used to him when I fight an opponent who fights back. I one time finished him on hard while other characters I could not. I am pretty used to him due to past experience on super smash bros series.

He has several options in fighting from a distance: he can use arrows, pull out bombs, or use his boomerang. Up close he is excellent as well, being able to parry any opponents coming by slashing his sword upward three times or using his spin attack. He has a tether grab and is considerably heavy, so there is always a good option to choose from no matter what situation I'm in. Recovery has really not been a problem for me very much with Link in the way some would say it is.

Very good, way better swordsman than STUPID META KNIGHT! His controls are great and his final smash is the best in the game, I mean it is the stinking TRIFORCE! ALso he has most of his objects at his disposal, like bombs, a boomerang, a bow (a very good weapon, always annoying my brother with it), and his shield. Also, I love the video games like the Ocarina of Time. Seriously, the hero of time vs a stupid midget man with a stupid looking sword (Meta Knight). Just wish he was faster.

8 Toon Link

He is the greatest version of toon link. He is so OP. His bomb is the perfect spamming move. The tether grab has so much faith of saving you. I just do not understand why he is so low on this list. I think that toon link is the smartest addition to any smash bros game. He is just too good.

Are you kidding me? He is better than link! He's just a little ball of fury, I love him! His final smash is great! He is quick and strong, and light, so he can jump better. He can throw some mean attacks, even to some really good opponents.

He may not be as strong as Meta Knight, but people won't get angry for you choosing him! His Boomerang is better than that tornado Link throws, he's smaller so he's harder to hit, and HE IS BEAST!

All around best in my opinion. A little light but still better than Link. High marks on side+A moves plus his jumping down+A is so effective.

9 Marth Marth is a fictional character from the Fire Emblem series, developed by Intelligent Systems and owned by Nintendo. He is the protagonist and Lord class character in the first and the third games in the series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, ...read more.

He's literally a faster version of Ike with better special moves and he's got potentially one of the Highest damaging final smashes In the game he is my main (zero suit samus close second) and I can win against 9s on any game any map any rules I just think with enough practice he's better than most stereotypically amazing characters eg meta knight, link, sonic, etc. That's just my opinion take of this as you will thanks for reading

I started out with ike, cause he seemed pretty cool, but after falling off the map one too many times, I eventually got sick of him, and switched to meta knight, then I realized that meta knight got ko'd way to easily by characters like ike, and DK. So I upgraded to Marth, and haven't had any other desires. But the best part is that people don't get pissed off when you use him in wifi mode unlike kirby pikachu, and meta knight.

He's actually pretty well balanced, if you ask me. Quick, jumps pretty high, good damage. He's also pretty good for chain grabs and can rack up damage with Dancing Blade. Counter can punish powerful moves with long starting up lag, and down tilt can edge-guard like a boss. Pity he only has one recovery move. And is a bit too tall for his own good. He may need a little getting used to, but after that... Boom. :D

How is he in 8th place? His combos are insanely good and he has the fastest running speed. He can jump pretty well and his aerials are powerful, especially his up air. His down air can meteor smash and his sword has good range. He has good disjointed hitboxes, some good powerup attacks, good recovery, and a counter. I can consistently win against level 9 cpus using marth. He is MY MAIN!

10 Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing ...read more.

I will now post most of what I know about Lucario, so vote this post up on the list.
LUCARIO has incredible power, rivaling ike in 4p mode. He has a projectile that, when uncharged, is as good as diddyk's popgun. Lucario gains power when attacked, so damage for all attacks is increased gradually throughout the game, although at 0% he is the worst character. If he is at over 100% he can kill with a fully charged aura sphere, if someone is winning by a good margin and if Lucario shoots someone with high damage.) Lucario has the MOST POWERFUL SMASH ATTACK in the game with side smash and it is quicker than DEDEDE's (ONLY WHEN LOSING)
Lucario has great attacks overall, with a counter that makes him invincible, unlike Ike or marth's. He can't be grabbed if he is in a counter but right after. He has the best recovery at high percent, and if he is losing a match, ten to one he will be winning in five minutes (if the player is good)
Lucario is a counter pick to Ike because he has a ...more

PUT HIM HIGHER ON THE LIST! Lucario deserves it so much. He is very fast and has a great aerial game. His final smash is better than FALCON PUNCH. Almost no one could think of something so good. Also I love to compare Force Palm to Falcon Punch. No matter how I compare them none of them win. If you master how to use Double Team (which I did) you can get far launch. Lucario is great for edge guarding because tilts are great. Beat my brother who played for 4 years longer than me. Lucario is my main and he should be higher on the list.
He is badass.

Why isn't Lucario #1-5!?!? He has a brill refovery, great speed, and his wieght class mixed with aura being fluenced makes him harder to K.O. and stronger. Aura sphere is deadly, unlike samu's charge shot, it hurts you if you touch the aura sphere. The only con with Lucario is the doodles of his up, and side smash. The Pokemon characters are underrated. There stronger then you think!
Fun fact-Pikachu was the only character to ever beat a Meta Knight in a tortoment!

He is a bit slow to the punch but he is never out of the fight. If you don't already know he gets more powerful as percent increases making room for some crazy comebacks. One time in a tournament I played against marth and after he got me to over 100% I was unstoppable! out of three stocks I won with 2 left!

The Contenders

11 Fox Fox McCLoud is an anthropomorphic fox who first appeared in Star Fox for the Super NES in 1993, the son of James McCloud who perished during a mission and the leader of the new Star Fox team along with Peppy Hare former member of the original Star Fox team, Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad as they the ...read more.

Fox's backflip kick and split kick are the most destructive things on the planet. Fox is so amazing his mere taunt can split the universe in two. Fox and his pistol rip through time and space like episode 236 of Star Trek when the Glamekians jumped across 2 GALAXIES. I've never seen such a strong B and up move, fox goes inferno, so hot it makes lava sweat. Not to mention his B am over which literally just rips through dimensions faster than the Enchiridion mixed with a Dialga and Palkia offspring. All in all, fox is a fast strong character that don't take crap from no one, including Einstein, Father Time, and the laws of physics. Next time you go to play a game, pick fox, you're gonna like the way you look.

Fox is the best character of them all! He's fast! His Fox Illusion can really strike other opponents without looking like a sneak attack. Amazing how you can use his reflector and it would almost reflect anything sent toward you. His combo kicks and punches is awesome! The Fire Fox attack has a great range in going back on stage as well as flaming people up down and side to side. He looks awesome, his talking is cool and he's got Falco and Wolf on his side in this game! His outfit looks awesome too! I say that Fox McCloud should be Number 1 on this list! His blaster can take great deal in damage but still no flinching... But don't get me started on the Landmaster Final Smash. It's huge, rolls and KO's enemies, hovers them across the boarder and shoots them dead!

Fox's moveset is great for combos, making an unstoppable air and land character. For a lot of the moves, like his reflector, there is no warning when it's going to come, and his moves do a lot of damage in Boss Battles. His blaster can damage without the opponent moving, making it uesful in Subspace Emissary where he can defeat Paratroopas and Poppants. He is one of the only characters that can do target smash level 1 in 15 seconds, and he can damage a sandbag a lot to make it go far in Home-Run Contest. Landmaster can do a variety of moves, and can even lift players sky-high to KO them. In my opinion then, Fox is my best and favourite character.

Fox is definitely my favorite smash bros character (although I get more wins with Kirby). He has great combos, awesome jumps, a laser gun, a REFLECTER, and one of the deadliest final smashes ever. I think fox is a great way to showcase the awesomeness of Brawl while at the same time requiring a little skill to use his powers at full capacity. Unlike meta knight AKA the cheap win.

12 Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first ...read more.

To start with, Boswer is just okay. He's pretty strong and one of the strongest in the games but he has a lot of weaknesses, like his slow speed and recovery. He's trash for noobs but when you know how to play with him, he's pretty decent and fun to use.

Bowser is probably the most badass and strongest character in the game. Even though he isn't very fast, he can still wipe out opponents easily, and rack up some nice damage. You can even taunt people by grabbing them and suicidebombing them at the start of the game. Definitely my main.

Most underrated character in the game. I will admit he's slow. But he has some of the best KO and percentage racking abilities in the game. (Bowser bomb, strong side, whirling fortress, fire breath, etc. ) and if you ask me he should be at the top of this list.

I remember when I used Bowser and then in the wii there was the iceberg stage I used 1+left or right. I take the enemy to the lower part of the iceberg, they get stuck and then the fish finishes them off for me.

13 Mr. Game & Watch

Like 3 years ago, I used to play as Kirby and Jigglypuff, but then I stopped. This year, I saw someone playing as Mr. Game and Watch in Smash Bros. After I saw that, I got back to playing and tried out Mr. Game and Watch, and everything changed. I realized how I was missing out on such a unique and awesome character. I have never lost a single battle with Mr. Game and Watch. I love how he fights and his abilities, but he is more than just a 2-D fighter. He is filled with personality and fun! I main Mr. Game and Watch because he is like the only interesting character to me in the game. I am really sad that Mr. Game and Watch is not the first on this list. But anyways, GO MR. GAME AND WATCH! SHOW ‘EM WHAT YA GOT!

Nobody gives Mr. Game & Watch the credit he deserves. He's really unique with how he's 2d in design. He may have a sucky stage in Brawl, and he's real light, meaning it isn't hard to KO him. However, he's been so much more upgraded in Brawl. He has a hilariously cheap standard ground attack makes for opponents really having a tough time against you. He can take in projectiles with his bucket and dunk it back on opponents for a really powerful attack. It's always a thrill using Judge, he's real maneuverable, his recovery is amazing, his back air attack is a ' turtle, and I just have a fun time using him in general. He is so much better than he was in Melee. I'm waiting to see you in Smash Brothers 4 Mr. Game & Watch. I really am.

I think he is 4th in the game because when you hold 2 he takes out his gun out and keeps shooting you. And he also has very good blocking attacks. A lot of people think his hammer is a waste of time but if you hit it at the right time you can do some serious damage or turn someone into ice. I think his grab is one of the best in the game. When you press 2 and down at the same time you can also do some serious damage. When you are going against a level 9 CPU he is one of the few characters who can escape from a grab. This is why I like him. His jump is decent.

Clearly the best player in the game when utilized properly. People can argue strength of attacks, range, weight, etc. but Game & Watch is the original character of Nintendo and has a variety of different moves that are effective and can frustrate opponents, leading them to make mistakes. Not to mention the best taunts on the game.

14 Mario Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

His spike can be very good compared to most fighters if used properly. Just when an opponent is recovering, jump and use a fire ball since it has some hit and travel with it. Once its about to hit an opponent, use your spike and they don't have time to react (most of the time it works). You can also use it if you try to recover since people try to get you away. Use a fire ball then do double jump when your recovering and spike and then there down a life and quickly recover back on stage. Especially useful on characters with bad recoveries. I sometimes charge at them from off the stage, use fire, spike, and still live. But it does require some practice since you need to know when and where exactly to shoot the fireball. Once you get the hang of it's not only a dangerous/good move/strategy, but a technique that looks in style/cool and you feel happy for doing it.

Mario is an excellent edge guarder because of his F.L.U.D.D. and Cape. With his Cape, he can reflect projectiles and turn around opponents, thus preventing many recoveries. He can also use his cape to make people get launched farther if they are being launched upward, making them fly 1.5 times higher. With his F.L.U.D.D, he can make characters get lag with their attacks and prevent more recoveries. Not to mention, his aerials are fast and are good for combos.

Mario is the strongest.

He must be number one.

All his attacks are strong and nobody can beat him easily.

He is the strongest com character too.
It's more difficult to win against him as com as another chara as com.

He is the best and the no one.

Only vote for Mario.

The only issue that I don't like about Mario (Which is the reason I never use him) is because of his up-special (recovery). If you're falling, and you are facing the other direction of the ledge and use it, you will jump AWAY from the ledge and DIE

15 Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu is my main character because he is fast and can deal lots of powerful combos highly damaging the enemy while also being able to take a decent am out of hits. He is good for a beginner but really is good when you are experienced at using him like I am. With Pikachu I can take on anything unless they kill me first. But I would suggest him to take on Meta Night, Capitan Falcon and Lucario. Pikachu is good against things like that. I find that only one other thing can crush Pikachu is Charizardd

Pikachu is really powerful and good at trolls. He is easy at spam and when up against little mac, kirby, captain falcon, falco, star fox, mega man and Wii character, all have 5 lives, I killed 2 of them (all five lives on both of them)

Pikachu is CHEAP BUT GOOD. I practice with level 9 computers and when I battle a Pikachu opponent, I know what's going to go down. Spams down special and special all day, everyday. Ain't no joke. B+ Tiers on all games. LITERALLY.

Pikachu isn't the most powerful of characters, at least not when they hardly have any damage. But his down smash, when done continuously, will gather a lot of damage. Then side smas, they're out. X_X

16 Lucas

This choice was hard, between Ike, Lucas, and toon link (there are many more though) I have to go with lucas, I've been through many character phases, meta knight, ice climbers (which I now hate) and even lucario, then I found lucas, and I fell in love with this guy, but not at first, he is very tough to control, his PK thunder attack takes some getting used to if you want to use it for recovery, or even just for damage, but his Down-Up A attack is AWESOME, if you don't know, (I use nunchuck) if you press up down up down while using A, you shoot a burst of energy in the air hat can 1 hit KO any player that touches it above 50%, yeah, its pretty awesome.

SUMMARY: Lucas is great for advanced players, but I don't suggest him for begginers

This kid is more than he appears. The only bad thing about him is his PK Freeze, which is pretty useless, and slow grab attack. However, he can technically use that grab as another recovery, along with PK Thunder. Not only that, but said attack makes it excruciatingly easy to grab Smash Balls, and since he can use it right away, no worries about others stealing the Smash Ball! Lucas also holds one of the strongest smashes, that being his smash up. He may not be the best character, but he does deserve a higher spot.

My favorite char in the new ssb is villager, and they made Lucas a buyable dlc. If I had Lucas, he would be my 2nd favorite (if I had bayonetta too.) In brawl my favorite was wolf, but he ain't here for some reason. Anyway, in the new ssb they votes buffed up Lucas he is now so OP. Quick fury attacks, his grab can bury, easy edges, his up sends him farther than ness, this guy is EPIC. Smashes cool too.

I understand why people aren't voting for him, he is by far the most complicated character. Even more complicated then ness. But once you master him he is a beast. And his up smash can one shot anyone if it's critical.

What I tell about other characters...
Folco and Fox have a bunch of room for sd.and they can't k.o ANYONE without very high percent.

Kirby is way to light ( same with jiggalypuff)

Gandorf may have the best attacks in the game but they are so slow! (

And then theirs jiggly puff, she's all of the above. She sucks

17 Pit Pit is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, first appearing in Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986 and later appearing in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy in 1991.

One of this voices in ultimate is
"I never learn how to read"
I know we are talking about brawl but I just found that adorable. anyways he is a straight up good character, not because like most characters are just fangirling. its just he is good

Pit is epic! His wings make for an easy recovery, his arrows can attack at long range and his B-side is awesome to spam! I don't have that many favourite characters, but Pit definitely takes the top spot!

Pit really has everything a character needs. He has nice attack power, knockback, attack range, ariel combat, two reflectors, a projectile, excellent recovery, decent weight, running speed, etc, etc. He really has no weaknesses. Pit is probably the single most balanced, versatile character in the game. Even more so than Mario, who lacks knockback and firepower in his moves. It's too bad that his reputation is off thanks to noobish spammers

Pit is a very great character, he has good attacks that help him defect objects like his shield and spinning sword attack. Once you learn how to use him to your advantage he turns out to be a very good character. In my list he is number one but most of the time he is underrated and it puzzles me why.

18 Ganondorf Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

Ganon's power is good and has somewhat decent combos but he's awful in this game and has way too many weaknesses. He's got the worst recovery in the game, the shortest grabs in the game and he can be outranged by Kirby and Meta Knight of all people though he's like the tallest character in the game. He can get exploited way too easily.

I like using Ganondorf and I'm proud to admit that. You may be slow, but you are the heaviest hitter in the game. The thing with him is that you have to get used to him. It isn't hard to give up on him, but if you're willing to accept his flaws, you will be a complete Brawling beast with Ganondorf.

Ganondorf is a pretty powerful character if you know how to use him. I just like spamming the annoying flame choke which grabs through shields and slams your opponent to the ground then I go for the down standard if the opponent is a thin/small character like pikachu.

Ganondorf is the toughest and strongest character. He counters anyone with his annoying palm and double kick. He can rack up a lot of damage with his small attacks and then use his insanely strong aerial attacks to finish them off.

19 Samus Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

Samus has a great recovery after two jumps and has a very powerful set of moves and her final smash is the best in the game! All my friends play this game a lot and I just recently started playing and I destroyed em all with samus.

Samus can be a beast if you know how to use her. She is so OP with her missiles and aura balls like Lucario. Personally, Meta Knight is my favorite but Samus is in a close second.

She is the most awesome character ever! She has stuff that comes with her suit that are super useful.

OP And the missiles are very affective. Also, her forward pound with her gun would send you to Mexico.

20 Captain Falcon Douglas Jay Falcon, known commonly as Captain Falcon, is a playable character in the racing video game series F-Zero.

Captain Falcon Has Two Main Falcon Punches. To Make A Combo First use the Uppercutt falcon punch and Get The Right timing to land a straight falcon punch sending them flying, in conclusion he is just a beast and OP! '!

Falcon punch and falcon kick are one of the most strongest moves in the game. Kirby is the worst character of all because you can't kick him because he's so short.

It is hilarious when he says falcon whatever. It seems like a joke but they do hit like truck on a highway

I feel like he should be higher. He's really fast and his charge attacks are excellent.

21 Zero Suit Samus

Um why is zero suit samus so low? I mean her final smash is just turning into samus who is worse and she isn't the strongest, but I always win with her. Her speed is incredible and her whips are majorly strong. I always use her going against level 9 characters. The only other characters who might compare to her are Lucario and Falco. Overall zero suit samus is quick, strong with weapons, and overall awesome!

She's the only character that can completely knock you off of the stage. It's great. She's definitely my main for SSBB. Her moves are amazing, if you stand on below a ledge another character is on and use up-B continously it traps them and gives them a ton of damage, then use up-A and KO! Her side B is great too, plus she is fast and can dodge easily. Only criticism- down B is pretty useless and has no Smash attack. But whatever! I KILL using her!

I think ZSS is an epic character, and I absolutely love using her down-b attack to dodge enemy attacks. Some of her smashes are good, and her up-b is a very long ledge grabber

Agile, good for combos, does decent damage, has good grab and good range. What's not to like?

22 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

Yoshi should definitely be higher. Sure, his up-bmove isn't very effective, but his down-b move is pretty tough to avoid and takes some time for the opponent to recover. The side-b move is my favorite because after hitting an enemy once in his rolling egg, he stays in it and can hit the opponent multiple times. He also has a good amount of speed and strength, and has a great special.

Yoshi is the best jack-of-all-trades in the game; he's difficult to launch, he's really strong and he's great at recovery. His egg roll is the perfect move to use at the beginnning of the game and his egg bomb will destroy everything. And it's funny when you use his b-move on the edge of the stage and watching your foe plummet to their doom in an egg. VOTE YOSHI!

Yoshi deserves more respect. I was playing with a few people who were good at smash then I wreaked everybody with Yoshi and a CPU difficulty that I wasn't used to

Surprised he's only at #20. I always own all of my friends as him with his ability to eat enemies, and his Final Smash!

23 Wolf O'Donnel

Wolf is amazing. He's fast, strong, and has long distance attacks. His final smash is amazing- strong, fast, and unstoppable. His gun can stun opponents, and his up and side special moves are good recoveries and are very strong. I'm shocked he's this low. The only other characters that come close to beating him are Pit with his great recovery and attacks, Mr. Game and Watch with his amazing final smash, and Lord Ganondorf, with his amazing final smash, recovery, and strength. All the other characters are kind of good, medium, or awful. And Olimar is the worst character of all- horrible moves, and even more worthless without his pikmins, which are not cute.

Wolf is just incredible. Period. He has surprising range and great recovery (as long as you don't miss the ledge, which happens a little too often. His aerials are powerful and combo. His reflector can counter anything (including melee attacks) because it comes out in 1 frame. AND he has THE GREATEST FINAL SMASH unless you play on the gay stage with the crabs and turtles. Though his landmaster doesn't last as long as Fox's, it is MUCH more powerful. It is so satisfying to one-shot your opponent with your cannon and then fly them off the top once they respawn.

Wolf, though sometimes slow and falls fast, is amazing with practice. His attacks are strong and lunges go far and are lethal. The triple a is powerful and pushes enemies giving you enough time to you more attacks.

Wolf a mix of Fox and Captain Falcon: He's fast, strong, and can jump high. His attacks lunge him forward and make him unstoppable. His 'B' attack causes his opponent to be stunned and give him enough time to strike his opponent.

24 Ness

Hey Ness is AWESOME. I mean he's pretty hard to use at first, but once you get used to him, you know where to charge his awe-inspiring bat attack, you know when to use PK Flash, and you know how to hit your butt with PK Thunder to save yourself from falling, Oh and you can control your PK Thunder attack.

Ness can screw you up physically and from across the map. His projectiles are are powerful and are helpful in some situations. His A attacks are not bad as well. Not to mention, his final smash is AWESOME!

Ness is honestly one of the best characters. He is very mobile and is arial attacks are very quick and can create good combos. His bat move is a great finisher, and once you can use his up B, he's basically invencible!

I feel many people completely ignore Ness for what he is: a combo master. Many believe that the only strategy to win is to spam, but there's so much more to him.

25 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Are you kidding me? Diddy Kong is rated in the top 3 in every SSBB tier list I've seen except this one. Also Kirby is usually rated as the worst character, even the official guide gives him an overall score of 5. Also there are only 35 playable characters in SSBB (39 if you count squirtle, ivysaur, charizard, Zelda, sheik, samus, and 0-suit samus). Some of these characters were retired after melee, some are bosses, and daisy is actually just a color change for peach yet she is ranked higher even though they are the same character. This is by far the most inaccurate ranking of SSBB (and several random non-SSBB) characters I've seen. I can't believe you people hate Diddy. He's the 2nd best character and my favorite. And Meta Knight is 1st not kirby. Don't vote on someone because you think he's cute! Vote on the guy that is totally OP and was almost banned tournaments (that means Meta Knight for all you out there).

What!?! If Diddy Kong And Meta Knight Fought, DIDDY KONG WOULD WIN!
He Might LOOK Week, But The Thing Is HE isn't! He Is So Underrated Just Use Him Once Or Twice And You'll See What I'm Talking About. He Is powerful!

I'm very surprised that he wasn't in the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

Also, Rosalina definitely could've replaced Princess Peach.

I'm very serious. I could ask Nintendo about this.

Diddy kong is the Quickest character in Brawl and he can fight faster too than Donkey Kong.
