Top Ten Best Super Smash Bros. Characters
The Top Ten
I wouldn't say that link is the best character, but he is so versatile in so many situations. He's powerful, he's not that slow, and he is just so good at range and up close. I main him, and he really hasn't disappointed me.
Yes Link is really good. I can see why you would put him in second even if I personally would put him in first but to Captain Falcon? Really? I mean sure his falcon punch is OP but it's really easy to dodge, and all his other attacks are pretty neutral, where as Link is fast, strong and can actually jump really high (if you know that you can use bombs to boost yourself) maybe its just because I've only played Smash Ultimate. but just so you know, I'm not saying Captain Falcon is bad
I love this dude I mean I love his sword but he looks better in breath the wild form With a blue shirt and no hat I always play as him
He is a awesome character! I mean he is great! He should be the number one character! He is so op!
Great advantage bad disadvantage, about as risky as a character gets.
Here is an idea for a game for ultimate Whos your daddy one play as bowser an the other as his kids all kids must be on the same team and the kid must fight bowser and bowser must fight kids last team standing wins
Man, this guy...Captain Falcon's air attacks as well as his rushing Falcon Punches and Kicks are simply insane. Plus, his recovery is also pretty god damn insane.
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!
Hey to everybody who hates kirby, I have a message to you. Congrats! Your a Hyperactive child who only plays mario, only watches mario shows, only eats mario based food, only has mario based stuff, and will only have friends who like mario. Mario is weak because if kirby and mario had a crossover battle, kirby would win because he would suck mario in his black hole stomach, and if mario stomps on kirby, kirby's only gonna take damage and not die. so you mario mains out there (Not You Zero I'm not trying to start a smash fight) I think you should go to a arcade like dave and busters and see there's more then just mario. kirby 1# boi
I feel like Kirby is the far more "going-with-the-sheep" choice of character and it seems as if you're throwing shade to Mario for no reason. They're both cool characters. - Galactic
A message to Kirby fans: He is good in the original games but lousy compared to other Kirby reps even outside of Smash, like Dedede, Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, and the best boss in the game: Marx.
Honestly, Kirby sucks. Mostly because even though he survived the light rays in the beginning of Ultimate, I think the reason he survived is because Nintendo thought about people starting with the WEAKEST CHARACTER IN THE GAME! Boom roasted, Kirby Mains! Take that!
Have people forgotten that Jigglypuff and Lucas exist? Because those 2 are weaker than Kirby - robertoiglesias271
Kirby is OP with his inhale but it gets super annoying when you have to face him.
He's so good in smash ultimate and has a unique moveset! Sonic speed!
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
Snake is great because he has like the best recovery and he is the most skill based character
I think Snake should Rocket Jump with Up+B instead of the Cypher.
I don't think snake should of ever been in smash bros - MasyMenos
Rocket launchers grenades helicopters what more can you ask for?
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.
He goes well against characters like C. Falcon and Sonic in Smash 4.
You all clearly are beginners both at spelling and smash bros. Consult competitive battles and look at tier lists. Brawl meta knight is the best character of all time.
Anybody who goes against him is either:
A. Slashed to ribbons
B. Blasted off the map
C. Drilled into an oblivion
D. All of the above.
He is number one in any game
Meta Knight was OP in brawl, so they nerfed him...Then after smash 4 they nerfed him again!? And Meta Knight is still a good character in Ultimate!
This why he deserves to be number 1!
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.
Thank you my fire emblem fans. Ike is a character that requires quick reflexes because he is slow but if you time him well he is unstoppable
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
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
Fox is too fast. Wolf is too slow. Falco is the happy medium - TealBoyxx
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.
I own all the Smash games other than the original, soon Ultimate. - Qryzx
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!
Most usable attacks and has the most powerful attacks with his hammer which can freeze you burn you or if he gets a nine you are going to get knocked off automatticly and his jump is one the third best jump besides roy and marth
Roy, Mewtwo, and Little Mac are a three way tie for strongest character. They are so broken! They are the BEST!
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.
" Hi, I'm Ness. I have psychic powers, but don't know how to use them. The other characters kick my butt! In other words, I'm a nuisance. Yay! "
Normally, I'm Ness. I KICK BUTT. Recovery hard to master but...WAOW. Ness great.
Lucas' attacks are more powerful. You should give him a try if you like Ness.
God ness is underrated - dinosaur
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
Roy's Our Boy! - Roy Kuchiki
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.
Wow. What a character! He is so over powering. Have amiibo. level 50. Strongest thing I will ever see in my entire life. His only nerf is his recovery
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.
Ganon will always be top tier...
In my heart. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
Well, your heart does not change a lack of tournament performance and general consensus. - Gamefreak23788
Luigi is a good character, with his combos of high damage and the ease of getting back to the arena makes it a great choice
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
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!
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!
I spam thunder to no ends.
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.
This guy is amazing I wish he had a more powerful final smash though
I love Marth as well! The way he fights kinda struck me as graceful! Not to mention he is really fast and flexible!
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
Lucario is lower number than mii brawler. Seems legit
Dude. Everything looks HD. That's not my point. The point is that I GOT HALF OF SSB 4 guys because of pit
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.
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!
People don't know how to use him in Smash 4, that's why people hate him.
Dr. Mario is the best clone character.
An underrated and overlooked character.
Dr. Mario is just Tetris - MarioBros11
This guy is awesome! He's my main in Smash. His side smash is very strong, his final smash is amazing as it is very powerful. This guy is just awesome! - MasterHand
This guy is a tank! he has bad walking speed, but decent running speed, THE most powerful attacker on the roster, and it is hard to knock him out. If you love powerhouses, this is your guy.
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
Inklings side b is just broken grounding people and with a quick side smash you pretty much done for
Inkling has amazing combos with it's ink and is just the best
Inkling does! - Neinwott
Actualy this list is not right because its your own damn opinion
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?
I like ness more not because design but because how annoying lucas is to fight compared to ness in smash ultimate but I like lucas more in design so I voted
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
His howl is the most epic taunt. Plus he has a tank. (It comes in red.) - ShuhBanggg
I LOVE HIS UP TAUNT.
Except that I side-b off the stage more times than I care to admit. On land it shouldn’t make you helpless. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
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
I spelled problem problem5? - AnimeLover11
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.
I believe Samus is the best female character there is to offer!
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
This character... Is absolutely amazing! the tree attack is so incredibly annoying and his rocket move is simply op cause it saves you from falling. Its rocket is also really powerful and I still haven't figured out how to beat my friend when he uses this.
WHY IS SHE SO LOW ON THE LIST? She should at least be above Peach...
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
Yoshi is bad-ass bub. He is so awesome and if you know how to use his final smash then it is the best
Yoshi is the best boi. I played as him once and instantly he became my main.
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.
Even though he's slow I'm a huge Pokemon nerd and I love his design. Malicious Moonsault for the win!
The only cat character
Best of best a lot better than link
Palutena and Zelda are week peach can beat them up palutena can get punch in the face and Zelda can get punch in the face
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.
Peach slays. She's my main, and I especially use her when I'm in a Smash Tourney or something. People don't expect Peach to be good. That's why I surprise them. Most recently, I've won with Peach 5 times in a row. I love her!
Peach is a great character! She can easily knock out opponents. - Videogamesgal
This is a disgrace! How is Wario below Peach - Spongehouse
An absolute BOSS - DCfnaf
He should be 1!
I thought he would be in the top ten. His limit can wreck everyone. Including Link
Cloud is the best character. He is better than Peach, Rosalina and Samus. He easily kills them with the limit
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
I don't exactly main Dedede, I main Marth but I want to get good at him so I can main him. - DapperPickle
I love king Dedede. He reminds me of one giant marshmallow - Spongehouse
Dedede is love Dedede is life
Better than he seems
He rocks. He's cute and powerful at the same time!
So overpowered can be used in so many good ways
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
An outcast - MarioBros11
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
I use him way too much in this game
HIS TAUNT IS OP
His taunt is pretty strong.
Better nerf Greninja
I did not see this coming - TealBoyxx
Why are so many people arguing about these characters? Ice Climbers are great! They can do the infinite grab.
They're adorable and I can really kick ass with them
The best main
Ice climbers are in Smash Ultimate, but their grabs have been nerfed, basically changing the meta - BoredBrandon
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
She's number 1
Probably the best character in any smash bros game, past present or future. Without Piranha Plant, there is no light.
Lol... They added piranha plant and not Geno - TheInsomniac
We got a potted plant before Waluigi. Typical.
He's just there for the memes. - RisingMoon
Must be higher at least at number 2 and Kirby is number 1 well should be plus mega Man 2 is number 7 on my best video games
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
The Mii Brawler is the best ever! Why? Because people could use miis of themselves, their awesome family, or their cool friends to play along.
How just how is this not top ten like come on guys u can literally make your own smash charter SMH
Most underrated character. In fact, I'd say it's one of the best
You can give it things to make it the best
R.O. B is awesome! When I was new to smash the character really helped me, I actually won with him. His controls are easy to handle and his moves rock! I'm sorry if you don't like R.O.B. but I think he should be number 1,2 or 3 at least in the top ten! He rocks
I mastered him, then suddenly POOF a smash ball appears and he does this crappy laser! What? - Captaincrunch2015
Why do so many people hate R.O.B. , he's AWESOME and original!
R.O. B is already on the list. - Captaincrunch2015
This far down shows why Jiggles is perfect: Underrated. Floats for a super long time making it easy to recover, lullaby means opponent is in their full control, and one of the most devastating attacks in the sleep attack. Please choose another character. I'll be happy to destroy you. - Xean45
Rest for the win
Underrated as heck - Spongehouse
Is this list serious? Why the hell is Jigglypuff this low she’s a lot better than most characters If you use her correctly and what is Goku doing on here?
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
Terrible - MarioBros11
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.
As a person who values recovery and close-range attacks, I can say Falco is easily one of the best fighters. His dash attacks are superb for zipping back onto the stage, and he is great for range and hand-to-hand. When I play as him, I feel unstoppable.
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!
I can wreck anyone in the whole school with this boi. FINAL DESTINATION, THREE STOCKS, NO ITEMS.
#meleeforlife - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
He's a big ass blue bird. How cool is that. Favorite cause he is a badass character who reminds me of myself. - Heatnix23
