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

He can fight and he's not garbage. And he doesn't have to act all slutty to prove anything, either.

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

Captain falcon in amazing in every way he is the second fastest in the game and has great moves like, FALCON PUNCH,knee of justice, etc. but that is basically all you need to win against anyone.

3 Snake

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.

Its showtime

4 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.

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.

Not to be rude but I kinda hate Mewtwo I mean the character is good but I don't like it's appearance

Has been know to defeat Pokemon twice his size, like Gyrados and Ryhorn.

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

His fantastic Up-B combined with his excellent aerial combos make Sonic a must pick in any Super Smash Bros. game! - theokapilover

6 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!

He the boi >:3

7 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.

Easy and strong to play as.

8 Ike Ike

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 everything.

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.

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

The thing I hate about being a Fox main is that people always assume that I'm a furry. It's like, I don't assume automatically that you're a douche/ whore!

The Contenders

11 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!

12 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

I love this guy.

13 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

Roy's Our Boy! - Roy Kuchiki

14 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!

15 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

16 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 A Great Person To Play With

17 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

18 Pikachu 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 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.

Pikachu is boss enough said

Great speed attacker

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

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.

She's awesome, is there much more to say?
