Top Ten Best Super Smash Bros. Characters


The Top Ten

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

Link is the main character from my all time favorite franchise ever and he is so awesome in smash. I wish that for smash they could have had just how awesome he really is in his game, but that would make he way too over powered.

Link is the coolest. His arsenal of tools makes him a one-man army. His shield is handy for blocking things like Fox's blaster bolts. His white tunic alt. costume is my personal favorite.

Toon link is better. And he's not THAT good. I would say jigglypuff in smash 64, fox for melee, meta knight for brawl, and cloud in smash 4 as the best characters for each game

Link is the best!

2 Captain Falcon

Who doesn't love Captain Falcon? This guy is great in like every manner possible. You have to admit, his character is defined mostly by his appearance in smash bros. He is the best guy. The real guy. The guy who should be number 1. Vote him up!

FALCON PUNCH! That's your OP attack

Show me your moves

3 Snake

I don't think snake should of ever been in smash bros - MasyMenos

I guess I could ask for more speed from him.

Rocket launchers grenades helicopters what more can you ask for?

Best character by far. Even match for any other character.

4 Meta Knight Meta Knight Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

Whoever says Meta Knight sucks should be grounded. Meta Knight's air attacks are great and also he can warp anywhere.

He can also glide but not in smash 4.

The first battle I ever did was with meta knight and a won against another player who was playing for about a month

Meta knight should be at least number 3. Why? Because he's BATMAN!

Kirby + Batman + Sword of Destruction = META KNIGHT

5 Sonic

I like the transformation to Super Sonic he gets with the smash balls. It's entertaining to fly around smashing everyone then seeing how that somehow makes them fly into the air. - SoulDeathTheKidMaka414

Don't try beat Sonic... because... YOUR TOO SLOW! - Silverbronwyn

Sonic is not that weak but he isn't strong either

I see that many people share my opinion. - Therandom

6 Kirby 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.

Please READ THIS ARTICLE SSBB FANS! Now listen, everyone can do good with Kirby, but every character can be mastered too. Personally, I have mastered Samus, Falco, Lucario, Luigi, Meta Knight, Sonic, I can go on and on , and Kirby, the best super smash bros. character ever. People say Kirby is easy to spam, has O P moves Which he does , but he is also predictable until you master him, like I did. First of all, no matter how powerful that hammer of his is, it is slow and inefficient, so I barely ever use it. If you ever want to send someone flying, use his damn smash attacks. They aren't the best in the game, but they kick ! Secondly, if someone sends you flying in the air I think you may know this one DOWN B! AND NO, this doesn't mean you should spam it, but it is amazing for preventing your self from flying off the stage. Third, take advantage of his JUMPS! Five beautiful chances Jumps for the sake of your survival... make that six if you use his up B sword correctly also his only ...more

Kirby is my best character, I like using all my 5 jumps and as my opponent follows use my down special! I usually try to suck up a character with a long range special so I have both ranged and melee attacks.

I have never been Kirby, but my brother always beats me with him, and I'm usually pretty good.

Possibly the #1 deadliest smash character. He eats people and spits them out as stars, he has a hammer to large for his tiny body, and when you least expect it, he takes out a 60 foot long sword!

Plus he is a master chef and will throw you into his soup whenever he wants to.

7 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

I like Mewtwo first from The Pokemon Series and now the Smash Bros. I love Mewtwo despite his hatred towards humanity, he is powerful in both Pokemon Series and Smash where he has tones of moves to use to attack others. He even has his two megas have the highest base stats but tied with Mega Rayquaza. In smash he showed more with his evil moves - Goodzone

A legendary Pokemon could cream a 2-D character any day.

Mewtwo's power in SSBM is unreal! I never lose with him. It was really saddening when I heard he wouldn't come back in Brawl.

It is a one few Pokémon who can go to other form

Ike shall be the Supreme God of Nintendo! IKE stands for Ike Kills Everyone!

Ike is my best he's on a none loss line

Ike is the best! His charge sword moves wreck everyone!

9 Mario 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 more.

Why is Mario, all the way down here? He's my favorite character, and I'm really good with him. He should be higher. - nintendofan126

He is my favorite video game character. Who doesn't love this guy? He can even beat Sonic in Super Smash Brothers.

He goes well against characters like C. Falcon and Sonic in Smash 4.

ONLY NO.9!? Why!? Mario is bascially the number 1 Nintendo character!

10 Fox

He's just awesome. Awesome attacks and combos. I'm always getting better with him. He. ROCKS!

Fox is awesome in melee along with falco but not in brawl - XxwileyxX38

All you do is Spam Fox's laser bullets on the beginning of the fight

20xx is real

The Contenders

11 Ness Ness

Lucas' attacks are more powerful. You should give him a try if you like Ness.

God ness is underrated - dinosaur

Damn Ness is an OP kid. He has very troll-like moves and is also fun to play as

His pk flash will send you flying, has super high jumps, op backthrow, good meteor smash, op final smash, can reflect AND absorb projectiles, he comes from an amazing game, how isn’t this boy at number one

12 Mr Game and Watch

He is very unique as a character. He is my main in Brawl. (That's the only Smash game I currently have.) He can be tricky to master but once you master him, you become a beast. He requires frame-by-frame perfection and you have to be particular with the movements on the controller. He is powerful, fast, and great recovery. He might be a little too light, but he makes that up by being an amazing character to master. Worth it? Absolutely! I was literally the only kid back in 2009 who used the OG of Smash. Everyone else I knew used Fox, Kirby, Mario, Link, etc.

He is so weird but he is so good. He's one of my favorite characters. I never heard of game and watch til then just like fire emblem

I'm the only kid I know who uses Mr. Game and Watch so I didn't think he'd be #2. He deserves it though. Go gas gun thing!

13 Ganondorf 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.

Everyone says that Ganondorf is a clone of Captain Falcon. I disagree (unless you're talking Melee; he was totally a clone in melee). Ganondorf is a slower, more powerful character. Even though some of his moves, like the Warlock Punch, are clone moves, some of them are different, like the side B. It makes it easier to combo people than Captain Falcon's uppercut.

At a sleepover with some friends, we were playing SSB 4 with my best friends dad watching. So anyway... One of my friends have never played, so we put all the characters except her on random to even the odds and I got Ganondorf. And since her dad was best with him I let him play... Everyone else got wrecked. Even though he is slow, he has REALLY powerful attacks.

Literally the best charecter! Way better than Mario. Luigi. Ness snake definitely cap falcon and falcon! Almost as fun as link.

He doesn't even come close to being as good as them. (Except link and ness, he's better than them) - ZE3

Too slow.

14 Little Mac Little Mac

He is so awesome. I wish they would make him better in the next game so I can see him in competitive play. He is my all time favorite and it makes me sad that so many people hate him. He fits the fighting game style more than many others that for sure

Yes, his recovery is trash but in the right hands he is totally amazing! Such amazing attack power and just a cool revamped design make it! Little Mac just fits smash bros so perfectly, he belongs in the game and I hope he never gets cut! Little Mac will always be my favorite

He is so cool. I swear, I will murder someone if they but Spring Man in it because Arms is just the lesser punch out

He is beast

15 Marth Marth

I kinda like using this character, but he should be slightly higher than just number 14. Listen, and why he should be higher: He can make a powerful counter, is less vulnerable to a reflecting projectile thanks to his close range capability. He's also quite fast with his sword too. He'd also be a big distraction to anyone that falls in love easily

You're kidding, right? As I write this he is ranked 23! Why? Marth is awesome! He is easily one of the most fun to play on Brawl. He is very quick and can get many attacks in, as well as dodge when necessary.

I love Marth as well! The way he fights kinda struck me as graceful! Not to mention he is really fast and flexible!

16 Roy

The fact that he wasn't carried into Brawl upsets me terribly. Him and Marth were my favourite yet only one got continued... Shame really. Amazing character with lots of tricks up his sleeve.

Why didn't he go in brawl! -

He returned for smash bros 4 as dlc

17 Luigi Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

Luigi should be number one you guys think luigi is bad you haven't mastered him then

Luigi is good character, if you think he's bad you either don't know how well he can be used or you're just a hater - ZE3

He is one of my three mains Link still outranks him in my opinion.

Luigi is the best

18 Pit 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.

I agree I love how he moves and a bonus is that he can fly so, good melee and distance and flying!

His final smash is the best and his move are good.

The first character I played as, and I love this character so much! I love the flying ability!

A great all-rounder with a great personality

19 Villager

If you know how to use him, he is definitely OP. I know how crazy that sounds, but I mastered him, and all my friends still have trouble beating me when I play as Villager and they use Captain Falcon, Link, Pit, and others like that.

I love screwing with people online as Villager, sucking in there attacks, planting trees, and that bowling ball attack is just so much fun to use

He pockets your attack, and gives it back to you, in a mean way. Enough' said.

That's true he can be OP

20 Ryu Ryu Ryu is a video game player character created by Capcom, the protagonist of the Street Fighter series.

Ryu is the best fighter in the game in my opinion. He has frame 2 kill confirms and he has a huge damage output and a disgustingly large array of combos.

I hate this guy


I like try
