Characters That Should Be Removed from the Super Smash Bros Series

The Top Ten

1 Dark Pit Dark Pit

Dark pit is better than waluigi and roy and has better moves than them both

We don't need a dark version of every character.

I agree! Why do we need Dark Pit?

I agree! Everyone wanted Roy or Waluigi but, we got Dark Pit. Yayūüėí

2 Dr. Mario 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.

This should be an alternate costume for Mario, not a separate fighter.

Who asked for him? - Randomator

He probably added him because a lot of people were asking for Roy and Mewtwo so maybe he wanted to please Melee fans, but then what about pichu? - SweetBasil

3 Roy (Fire Emblem Sword of Seals)

I don't agree he is awesome

He's completely uninteresting

Lucina is much more relevant nowadays

4 Lucina Lucina Lucina is one of the main characters in Fire Emblem Awakening, as well as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Her most notable feature is her love for her father.

Complete copy of Marth. She should be just a costume for Marth.

This list is horrible - SuperSmashBros4

5 Cloud Cloud

He and Bayonetta should be #1 and #2 respectively

Overrated Gary Stu - WendyIsQueen

6 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.

Take this off now! - TheKirbyCreeper999

Noo! Take this off! - Money1208

I have a very strange feeling money1208 is another account of Danteem - TheKirbyCreeper999

Let's take Luigi, and push him somewhere else.

He's literally not that good at all. HATE ME ALL YOU WANT DANTEEM, I REALLY don't CARE!

7 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.

They didn't improve him from Brawl to 4.

No - SuperSmashBros4

8 Princess Peach Princess Peach Princess Peach is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. She is the lead female of the The Mario franchise. She is usually the character who needs saved in most Mario Games, but also has appeared as a playable character in the Main-Series Mario Games, including Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario more.

Peach is far from weak. Her floating mechanic allows her to have great arial and offstage play. Her turnips allow for great air and ground approaches, along with the chance to pull more powerful turnips that can kill at low percentages, as well as items like bombs and beam swords. One of the best melee players in the world uses peach, clearly nobody who voted did there research here.

Okay,peach is not the strongest.but she can put foes to sleep and heal 10 percent of DAMAGE! How cool is that

Daisy would have been exactly the same - SuperSmashBros4

I detest her but not as much as her blue self, they should switch spots. - WendyIsQueen

9 Jigglypuff Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Well, people hate this character because of the helpless recovery move

JIGGLYPUFF IS A GOOD CHARACTER. Why are people hating on Jigglypuff.

She's ok - VideoGamefan5

10 Toon Link Toon Link

Nope. Toon link's cool. Yeah what, Young link?

Two things that should happen in Smash Bros 5: Toon Link replaced, Young Link returns.

Replace him with either Tetra or Vaati. Not only could either one represnt the toon side of the Zelda series, but they both have more moveset potential than Toon Link does.

There are too many links in smash ultimate. I personally don’t like that very much, and at least Dark Pit was dubbed an echo. I am confused why at least one of the two younger links isn’t considered an echo fighter.

11 Pichu Pichu Pichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
12 Bayonetta Bayonetta Bayonetta, real name Cereza, is a fictional character and protagonist of the video game Bayonetta and its sequel, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega and Nintendo respectively.

Ironic that DaisyandRosalina loves this b so much...

A previous comment said the Wii Fit Trainer was included for "unnecessary additional sex appeal". Speaking of that...

Feminism gone way too far, personified

Anyone "correcting" the person who wondered how she EVER got in the game: her series was "saved" by a deal with Nintendo, hence why 2 was Wii U exclusive. 2 was released soon after Smash Wii U/3DS. If she truly was the most-voted character they would have said so, not just "very popular in our #3 market" and "within the top 5". Her series had to be "saved" by Nintendo, read: weren't that popular. So cram the "won fair and square", "everyone wanted her", etc!

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

Sorta overrated - Pokemonfan10

14 Lucario 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 more.

Get this off the list

15 Zelda Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.

She is strong. Just take the time to master her. - Videogamesgal

No way - SuperSmashBros4

She now has Shiek seperately so now she is useless

16 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.

Ya Kick him sarcastic but really as much I hate Mario that's the Nintendo icon here's the reason why he should get kicked
1.he's a Nintendo mascot
2.he's a original 12
3.Nitendo will get a lot of hate
But they should kick him because
1.he sucks
2. Never was top tier

You hate Mario! The MAIN original character!

What the heck man it Mario the king of Nintendo

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


NOO - SuperSmashBros4

18 Greninja Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

Stop hating on Dark Pit and take out this weird thing. Also I hope Sakurai will announce that Pichu will never be in another smash bros game.


19 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010 . Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games more.

Don't get me wrong about this. It's not that I hate Rosalina. In fact, I don't. It's just I don't think she will be able to make the cut in the next game. Rosalina's much of being a surprise character that nobody excepted to join in. Although she really deserved to be in the recent Smash Bros games, but I am sorry to say that it is not for the next game. And since there is no sequel for SMG2 in the works, she will be most likely rejected in favor of Daisy, to whom I think is more deserving of a spot in the next Smash Bros game than Rosalina.

You know, I don't care if a character is "high-tier" or not. I only care if they represent the series well enough in Smash Bros. Rosalina could easily be cut from Smash Bros because she isn't a major character. Princess Peach, who is number one on this list, is one of the biggest characters in Nintendo; appearing hundreds of times. While some characters, like Shulk, Duck Hunt, Villager,etc., represent an entire francise or era in video games; Rosalina is but a fraction of Nintendo's largest and most important series.

Garbage character from a terrible game who's incidentally overpowered. And people wonder why she's the most hated Mario character?

Shouldn't even be in Smash to begin with. - HiImFarty

20 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

Stupid character

I don't care if his palette swaps are the other Koopalings, he's not that great to use and I never liked him in anything before.

Overrated - WendyIsQueen

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

No way - SuperSmashBros4

22 Wii Fit Trainer

If they (yes "they" since both the male and female Trainers are present just like with the Villager and Robin) had been given an actual skin tone for this game and not retained their literally chalky-white skin I wouldn't mind them so much. Their Slenderman-esque appearance just creeps me out.

Irrelevant to the idea of Smash Bros

Was only added because nobody requested her. Seriously.

So random an inclusion. So not fun to use. Only included for unnecessy additional sex appeal.

Ness? Nooo! I love him! (Cries uncontrollably)

24 Falco
25 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.
26 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.

The most annoying character on the Smash roster. He literally sucks and his games are so bad

Really stupid puffball who takes in everyone's gimmick. - HiImFarty

Jigglypuff is better than this hideous thing - WendyIsQueen

No U

27 Bowser 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 more.


28 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.


29 Snake

Removed, but brought back when he should've stayed gone

He is already gone:( - SuperSmashBros4

30 Mega Man Mega Man Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.

But he is an icon

31 Corrin (Fire Emblem Fates) Corrin (Fire Emblem Fates)
32 Lucas

Lucas? Nooo! I love him! (Cries uncontrollably)

33 Sonic 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.

The Smash series owes Sonic nothing. There were two whole games without him, and one of those two is still quite popular and even more well-liked than the newer games.

Buried comment that should not have been: "If Super Smash Brothers would be "nothing" or "pointless" without him, tell me why the Sonic-less Melee is still so popular and how the very first SSB was sucessful enough that Nintendo saw fit to make more? "

The only difference Sonic made is that he brought his cancerous fans to the "Smash" series and worse has them demanding decent or even good first-party Nintendo characters be replaced with Amy Rose, Knuckles, Shadow, etc.

If he weren't in this game the "Sonic" franchise's worst fans wouldn't be demanding that my main be replaced with Sonic's not-so-cute stalker. In fact they probaby wouldn't care about "Smash" at all.

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 more.

38 Wario Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario.

40 Shulk 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.

Reasons I'm a main but urgh just remove replace it with a xbc2 character BUT EVERYONE IS HERE

41 Inkling Inkling

These races of squid hail from the Splatoon series and should never ever be kicked.

42 Daisy Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

Anyone who said she wouldn't be a clone is lying to themselves.

43 Chrom Chrom
44 Piranha Plant Piranha Plant
45 Joker (Persona 5)

Yeah, as of this writing he's technically not in yet. But he will be next month, it's 100% confirmed. Either way, enough with the M-rated edgelord appealing characters, NIntendo!
