Top Ten Best Super Smash Bros. Characters

The Top Ten

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

Great advantage bad disadvantage, about as risky as a character gets.

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!

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

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.

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

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!

3 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.

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.

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

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

He's so good in smash ultimate and has a unique moveset! Sonic speed!

4 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.

Kirby can jump super long and high and can steal other characters ability's it is op and best

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.

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

5 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 amazing, the first time I ever played smash with my friends, who had been playing for moths, I picked meta knight ALL THE TIME AND WON! HE SHOULD WIN!

I hate meta knight he is such a starter for kids you know he is to op he like spams too much

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

6 Snake

Snake is great because he has like the best recovery and he is the most skill based character

This guy opened the way for Ryu, Cloud, Bayonetta and Simon Belmont. He's an important Smash Bros Character, like it or not.

I was proud to main him in Brawl, and I can't wait to main him again in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Rocket launchers grenades helicopters what more can you ask for?

I guess I could ask for more speed from him.

7 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.

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
6. Lucario
7. Mewtwo
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.

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.

8 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.

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

9 Fox

Fox is a pretty great fighter. I consider him to be the best smash bros fighter in the whole franchise. Sure, he wasn't that great in Brawl being C tier but in all other games, he was at least A Tier.

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

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

10 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.

His confusion and disable attacks are great to catch the enemy off guard. Than, strike with a shadow ball!

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

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

The Newcomers

Just announced as dlc fighter today

The Contenders

11 Mr Game and Watch

The people who say mr. Game and watch is bad just got him early. Glad I got him late and mastered him quickly

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!

12 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.

Ganon will always be top tier...
In my heart.

Well, your heart does not change a lack of tournament performance and general consensus.

Should be number one

13 Ness

" 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

14 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

15 Luigi Luigi is a 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 franchise, ...read more.

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

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

I would vote him if he had more meteor attacks besides only one frame of his down aerial attack and his down taunt.

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

16 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.

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.

17 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

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!

18 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.

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

19 Shulk Shulk is a fictional character and the protagonist from Monolith Soft's 2010 role-playing video game Xenoblade Chronicles, part of their overarching Xeno series of video games.

Actualy this list is not right because its your own damn opinion

The absolute most op in smash 4

I'm really feeling it!

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?

20 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.

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!

21 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.

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!

Great in Melee, okay in Brawl, and not so good in Smash 4.

22 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario is the persona Mario takes in the Dr. Mario series. Under this identity, Mario dons a lab coat, a head mirror, and a stethoscope around his neck. He first appeared in his titular game, Dr. Mario.

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

23 Inkling

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!

There op

24 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.

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!

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

25 Lucas

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)

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

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
