Top Ten Best Super Smash Bros. CharactersFreddyGodzilla
The Top Ten
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
Despite link being in the lower B- in the tier list, I'm somewhat surprised Sheik or Bayonetta isn't on the top. - SentimentalV 45 Comments
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!
Captain Falcon. No projectiles, no counter, only punches and kicks AND A damn KNEE OF JUSTICE! The ultimate symbol of brave fighters who never resort to coward tactics.
FALCON PUNCH! That's your OP attack
COME ON!V 27 Comments
I don't think snake should of ever been in smash bros - MasyMenos
Rocket launchers grenades helicopters what more can you ask for?
I guess I could ask for more speed from him.
Can't wait for Ultimate... - SentimentalV 12 Comments
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!
He's a badassV 24 Comments
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.
Screw the tier list...V 35 Comments
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.
Lucario never "replaced" Mewtwo. Mewtwo was planned for Brawl, but was cut due to time constraints. Look it up.
Fun fact: He was also planned for Super Smash Bros 64!
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
Sonic is the best.V 24 Comments
N64 Mario was by far the best character ever if you knew how to use him right. He could beat anybody by trapping them in your Down B spamming machine and slamming them back down to the ground. After a couple of seconds of trolling whoever you are up against, you hit with a smash attack and they are dead in 20 seconds. You have to be very good to play him right though which is his downside.
In the other games, he is nowhere near as good as he was but still has decent combos and powerful attacks, though you can't spam with him anymore. Nintendo realized he was too powerful and downgraded him so bad. He is a strong character overall and it will test the players skill and fighting style.
My favourite players are...
1. N64 Mario
2. Melee Marth
3. N64 Ness
4. N64 Kirby
5. Meta Knight
8. Mr Game and Watch
9. N64 Link
10. N64 Captain Falcon
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.
It's a me- mario!V 17 Comments
Ike is awesome! His attacks are slow but they hit like a truck!
Ike shall be the Supreme God of Nintendo! IKE stands for Ike Kills Everyone!
Sexy beast with rock hard abs and biceps
This guy is so OP when ever I fight I choose him (or link,ness,dark pit,shulk,and captain falcon, but mainly Ike) choose him if you want to win! me:spams buttons. everyone else: dangit RAGE QUIT.V 12 Comments
Fox is awesome in melee along with falco but not in brawl - XxwileyxX38
He's just awesome. Awesome attacks and combos. I'm always getting better with him. He. ROCKS!
All you do is Spam Fox's laser bullets on the beginning of the fight
he's coolV 12 Comments
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!
Definitely my favorite oft them all. People see him more of a joke than what he really is capable of.V 14 Comments
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
No no no, Lucas is the best! Start war! -kittenpaws01V 15 Comments
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!
Marth Rules! I use Lucina, and they have the same moves! Marth and Lucina should be at least 3rdV 9 Comments
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.
Should be number one - ggggh
One thing that I would change about Ganondorf would be his moveset.I mean come on it's so unoriginal and uninspired.He should use the sword of the six sages for COMBAT,not taunts.V 3 Comments
Luigi should be number one you guys think luigi is bad you haven't mastered him then
I would vote him if he had more meteor attacks besides only one frame of his down aerial attack and his down taunt. - BoredBrandon
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
Why is weegee down here? He is OP once you master him and his taunts are incredibleV 11 Comments
Actually in smash 4 you could easily win with him, for those who don't take risks lucario isn't for you. He is risk reward type character. His up special is incredibly good at getting you out of the void and, ledge bouncing opponents, (use it and if your opponents in air you just attack him with it he'll bounce off the ledge) along with that counter is good even with project tiles unlike, other counters they are really limited, but with lucario he does a clean sweep basically (if playing a 4p smash and all are in a row just plows right through them.
Come On! Why 17? Ness is worse; he should be below jigglypuff. The Pokemon trainer should be the last of all. Anyway, Lucario is fast, his attacks are very cool and badass, don't forget aura sphere. Gotta love lucario and not hate him just because he'd replace him. Don't fry 'cause Mewtwo was replaced.
He is awesome and kirby is too
Oh hi Mark, Its your doom! CAUSE ITS LUCARIO!V 9 Comments
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
Okay everyone say it with me, Roy’s our boy, Roy’s our boy, Roy’s our boy!V 6 Comments
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
Awesome character, he is so strong on the ground. Not so much in the air... He is so easy to use and learn. Anyone can pick up a controller and destroy as Little Mac!V 15 Comments
People don't know how to use him in Smash 4, that's why people hate him.
An underrated and overlooked character.
Dr. Mario is the best clone character.
I like him more than Mario in Smash 4. He is a bit slower but a bit stronger, and he doesn't have F.L.U.D.D. - BoredBrandonV 1 Comment
This has been my main ever since the beginning of the game, and I don't think it will ever change. He is honestly really good and a pretty decent character if you want to learn all aspects in smash.
I agree I love how he moves and a bonus is that he can fly so, good melee and distance and flying!
He is my main and he is pretty powerful if you know how to use him, same with all the characters so there really isn�'t a bad character, nobody is a bad character, its just that people don't know how to use them.
Pit is a really, really REALLY awesome character. 1. His power of flight can go super high (about 15-20ft)! 2. His upperdash arm does 9.5 damage. So it is easier for u to get more KO’s and less falls. PS In my opinion, Pit is more hansomer than Link.V 14 Comments
Pikachu is great for people who want to hit fast, and its attacks can steadily build up damage if you use it right. In fact, it WAS at the top of the original Smash Bros. Tier list, right?
Fast and agile so you can dodge attacks and also hit them back with quick attacks. Only downside is that it is light and final smash isn't great.
I really like pikachu, I like fast attacks and lightning, so that's why it like pikachu, first time playing as pikachu was so fun!
He should be #1 - -Pikachu-V 5 Comments
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.
Villager is OP and somehow a bad gamer like me has mastered him. I like the way Nintendo made an Animal Crossing character become such an OP character in a smash bros game!
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
Best. Edge. Guarded. Ever. I flipping love all his projectiles and his ability to annoy everyone else by spamming loyd. - SentimentalV 6 Comments
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
He has TWO FINAL SMASHES HE'S THE FIRST CHALLENGER TO HAVE THAT!
I like try
His taunt is pretty strong.
He is fast and powerful, He has lots of combos.

I don't exactly main Dedede, I main Marth but I want to get good at him so I can main him. - DapperPickle
Dedede is love Dedede is life
He better than all yalls and I'm not jestin
DEDEDE DEDEDE DEDEDEDE-DEDEDE! - AcetoV 1 Comment
Really everyone? Bowser is totally the best! He might be a bit slow, but if you know how to use him right, Bowser's got great attacks, good dodges, and he breathes fire for crying out loud!
Bowser is my main in smash with 2 others and he is all time my favorite if you know how to use him you get great attacks best dodges and amazing saves he should be spot at least above 10
Bowser is awesome if you know how to use him. He needs to be #13 at least - Randomator
Hello... Bowsercide is crazy, like damn
A cool character and I like the mechanic where you can only use their sword and tomes a number of times, and also the male and female versions. Also, I like using Levin Sword in the air. So much detail...
My main in smash using tomes are awesome.
Robin is awesome what's your problem5? - AnimeLover11
Get higher - LarrytheFairyV 1 Comment
Inkling does! - Neinwott
Samus is the best female character on Brawl. Seriosly, think about it. Peach is a ditzy, dumb, overly-girly princess who would rather put on makeup than fight. Samus, however, is a detirmined tomboy who shoots guns and kills monsters for a living. Zelda's okay, I guess, if you're into that kinda thing, but she gets kidnapped way too much for her to be a very srong and powerful character. Samus hasn't been kidnapped ONCE and she isn't the snobby, weak princess that can't defend herself (cough) Zelda (cough). Nana is cute. Nana is funny. But when you think about it, Nana isn't powerful. At all. And don't even get me started with Samus and power. You have to asume a woman who changes into a butt-kicking robot is pretty powerful. I don't suggest telling Samus she's weak or powerless. 'Cause if you do she and her shotgun might be the last thing you'll ever see...
WINNER IN ALL AREAS. HAS THE SKILLS (and looks and background) TO PROVE IT.
Whoever said her up smash sucks should fall in the lava. Samus has powerful projectiles and she can grapple like link.
shes goodV 6 Comments
She sucked in Brawl, I'll give you that. But in four, she's a combo master
Pretty good in both Brawl and Smash 4.
She was a total badass and boss un smash 4
Marth may be my main but
Bathing Suit Samus is my MLG Main.
I don't know what one you are talking about, but for Wii U peach is super op. Toad attack, umbrella if you use it right, and the side slam. I always win with her.
Should be higher
Should be higher
She is tricky to master her but once you do you have a beast.V 3 Comments
He is what cool is. You should be able to look up in the dictionary at cool and underneath it should say Falco even the name is cool. Is Melee he is the best but then in Brawl and 4 he is not as good. But such a surprise it was to unlock him in Melee he was the best in that game so he is the best ever!
He's a big ass blue bird. How cool is that. Favorite cause he is a badass character who reminds me of myself. - Heatnix23
He's great in Melee, good in Brawl, and he sucks in Smash 4.
Cloud is the best! He has attacks that do almost the most but still 5 attacks and the opponent is dead. Anyone that thinks link is better than cloud is absurd. Cloud has more range than link so why is link number 1
Cloud is my main because he is reasonably fast his attacks do a lot of damage and his limit breakers are awesome! He should be a lot higher on the list
People say Rosalina can beat anyone but she can't beat him. He can totally beat her even something below her if you know what I mean (Lenny face)
Blonde and sexy swordV 6 Comments
She has very crisp and an overall intense moveset which I strongly appreciate. I like that she is a boy but secretly a girl which makes her an interesting and unique character out of the others. But, you have to have lots of skill to master Sheik. Like I said, she's very different out of the others. If you want to main a complicated and unique character, I recommend you try Sheik.
Shiek before they split her from Zelda was a very good character. I main shiek and will continue to even against move heavyer hitting characters. Her ability to wall cling and get an extra little jump is very useful on certain stages.. and if used right jelly fish is a good finisher to opponents trying to recover from a hit off stage.
GGodd in melee and 4. Needs to be higher up.V 1 Comment
His howl is the most epic taunt. Plus he has a tank. (It comes in red.) - ShuhBanggg
An absolute BOSS - DCfnaf
He should be 1!
His PK Thunder is way more effective than Ness's, and if you use it properly, it can do about 20%. His PK Fire is very accurate and hard to miss with, PK Freeze is much easier to control then PK Flash, and last of all is up smash is very strong, covers a wide area, and does decent damage.
If you know how to use him, he is BEAST. ( Plus he's adorable)
To the person who said he has no idea what the down. So say fox is using his gun and a projectile hits The black hole, it heals Lucas
Should be in the top ten.V 5 Comments
Pac-Man is a classic! I mean, talk about an old-school reference! He is like, super powerful! Look at his moveset! He is so awesome! Though I would say the duck hunt dog or villager is in close second.
This guy is so cool!
PAC-MAN IS DA ONE DA ONLY ONE AA *dies of hyperactivity*
She isn't all bad
Definitely my favorite all around
Why is Rosalina keeps appearing in every Mario games?
Why do haters keep complaining about Rosalina being in more games but any other character appearing more is fine? - DCfnaf
10/10 my waifu - peepsmithV 4 Comments
Diddy kong need to be higher! His jetpack is a great recovery move, and his peanut gun and final smash is awesome
He's back again and about time too
And this time he's in the mood
He can fly real high with his jetpack on
With his pistols out, he's one tough Kong
He'll make you smile when he plays his tune
But Kremlings beware 'cause he's after you
Why are so many people arguing about these characters? Ice Climbers are great! They can do the infinite grab.
Ice climbers are in Smash Ultimate, but their grabs have been nerfed, basically changing the meta - BoredBrandon
Why are Ice Climbers not in the new game WA - MasyMenos
Yes you guys are right so to answer your question, they weren't in ssb4 because of technical difficulties in the 3ds version. They should be on the one for the Switch if there is one.V 1 Comment
I'm not a Bayonetta fan and I'm voting for her. I know a lot of people like her combos so I am speaking out for those who haven't found this website.
One of the only characters who can kill someone with 0 damage in one combo set
HeR RANKING is underrated
Best female character in smash because the rest are garbage or can't fight.V 2 Comments
Although I know she is a Marth Clone and has no tipper her consistent damage along the blade suits my play style better. She is my second main.
My main in SSB4 along with Marth - PerfectImpulseX
I LOVE HER SO MUCH
Marth + Waifu = Lucina
Do I need to say more?
If you learn how to use this 1980's character correctly, he is really deadly. I can beat every level 9 CPU and most of my friends with him, and I am a mere Pre-Teen (just like any other Pre-Teen loser that surfs the web for this type of stuff). Mega Man's skill set is very unique and his final smash is awesome. His actual video games rule and he can slide. Why is he not number1?
At first glance, Mega Man seems underpowered, but if you can learn to use him correctly, he is just as deadly as any other character. - llamabaconllama37
Megaman is a lot like his games, to really have a good time, you will need to master his abilities and controls first
He is awesomeV 5 Comments
Yoshi is bad-ass bub. He is so awesome and if you know how to use his final smash then it is the best
Whoever put him this far is just plain stupid, he is pretty strong, if you know your ways.
Why so low? Should be at LEAST #5.
Yoshi is clearly the best super mario character and clearly the best smash bros character.#spameggroll.V 4 Comments
He rocks. He's cute and powerful at the same time!
Coming up my school is having a super smash bros tournament on Wii u after school 3-5 and I'm going to be duck hunt because he is cute and good at the same time
Most underrated character. In fact, I'd say it's one of the best
You can give it things to make it the best
Essentially Bruce Lee on steroids. - xandermartin98
Should be 1V 2 Comments
Toon link is my main followed by wario and every time got to admit see a lot more links than toon links
Gotta love toon link
Why only 49th? this guy is basically a better version of young link, and he is a better version of link
The fact that this guy is 49th is absolutely disrespectful. SMDHV 1 Comment
Rest for the win
YOU ARE SO CUTE THAT I WOULD ADOPT YOU IF I COULD
Jigglypuff is adorible in Smash bros melee because she is bright pinker in brawl. In Smash bros 4. She is less adorible
The absolute most op in smash 4
I'm really feeling it! - xandermartin98
Number 41! Are you serious! Shulk is one of the strongest characters of super smash bros. His counter attack is amazing! Low on hp? Use shield. Can't knock out your opponent? Use smash. Knocked out and can't get back to the arena? Use jump. Can't keep up with your opponent? Use speed. Wan't massive damage? Use buster or maybe smash. These are the Monado's power. Use this strategy and you will be really feeling it. Do I need to say more?
