Top 10 Most Overpowered Video Game Characters

From the early days of gaming to the high-tech virtual playgrounds of today, there have been characters that just seem to break the mold, characters that make you throw your hands up in despair or triumphantly raise them in victory.

Some might argue that these characters unbalance the game, while others might see them as the epitome of strategy and skill. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. What's undeniable is that these overpowered characters add a layer of complexity, challenge, and excitement to the gaming experience.
The Top Ten
1 Meta Knight - Super Smash Bros. Brawl 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 everything. He's all you ever wanted. He can win a set now even if you never won it. Clashes, he always wins. Trade, they ain't never gonna. You want him forever. Any counterpick, he's better on it.

Go play Super Smash Bros Brawl and play Meta Knight. Then you will see why Meta Knight is more powerful than anyone or anything.

Meta Knight is 100% overpowered, and he is banned from some tournaments unless players promise not to spam the Mach Tornado move.

2 Chuck Norris - MUGEN

Should be #1 by far in terms of pure OP-ness. He literally causes damage to you by WALKING. With every single step he takes, no less. The entire screen shakes from the force of him walking. O_O

One guy even said that Chuck Norris can blow up the moon in one stomp.
He can even push the Earth using push-ups.
His blood temperature is 98 degrees Celsius.
And much, much more.

You can tell that he's so good at this game because he can take over all of the characters with his power and strength.

3 Mega Rayquaza - Pokémon

So overpowered, Smogon literally made a new tier for this guy, which is the highest tier. It got banned from even Uber... yeah.

Honestly, now that Naganadel has been introduced, it's pretty fast to move Rayquaza to Ubers.

4 Brade - Broforce
5 Wizpig - Diddy Kong Racing
6 Fox - Super Smash Bros. Melee
7 Oddjob - Goldeneye 007 Oddjob is a henchman to the villain Auric Goldfinger in the James Bond film and novel, Goldfinger. In the film he was played by the Japanese American actor Harold Sakata.
8 Red Knight - Castle Crashers
9 Arceus - Pokémon Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pokémon series. It first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon. In the Pokémon universe, Arceus is widely known as "The Original One", as it's believed to be the creator of the entire pokemon universe. According to mythology,... read more

Arceus is the god and the creator of all Pokémon. Moreover, he can change types, but his Normal type is the best.

Recovery and Cosmic Power spam is really OP.

This is why I need one in Omega Ruby.

10 Ratchet - Ratchet & Clank Ratchet is one of the protagonists of the Ratchet and Clank series developed by insomniac games as a playstation exclusive.

Ratchet has always been a badass little rabbit. He is not a weak yuppie. He has a cool story. He earned his overpoweredness. He should be in Smash Bros and Rayman.

He is the strongest of them. These other idiots think first, *aww, a little kitty wants to play,* but then Ratchet shows his RYNO V and kills these guys.

The Contenders
11 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.

Kirby is better than pikachu in smash 64, no contest.
Kirby is stronger than meta knight in the games. Kirby has no business being this low...

Kirby has access to all the abilities in the game, including the overpowered ones. This means that Kirby is both the most overpowered character and the most underpowered character at the same time.

Whatever copy ability is OP in the game (Spark, Rock, Tornado, Archer, Leaf, to name a few), Kirby has that ability. Kirby isn't OP at all. He's Over-overpowered!

12 Pikachu - Super Smash Bros. 64 Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) 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. A mascot of the Pokemon franchise, it's... read more

There's a fine line between being a centralizing force in the metagame (like Pikachu in Smash 64) and being overpowered. Pikachu does not cross that line.

Go play Super Smash Bros 64 and play Pikachu. Then tell me why he is OP.

13 Akuma - Street Fighter Akuma known as Gouki in Japan is a character of the Street Fighter series and recurring antagonist, first appearing in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a hidden character and boss who could be summoned after certain conditions were met, an emotionless and powerful warrior fixated on mastering the Satsui... read more
14 Samus - Metroid Samus Aran is the protagonist of the science fiction action-adventure game series Metroid by Nintendo. A galactic bounty hunter, Samus is usually equipped with her Power Suit, giving her access to weapons she uses to battle her enemies.
15 Photoshop Flowey - Undertale
16 T.T. - Diddy Kong Racing
17 Nightmare Broly Ssj3 - Mugen
18 Roy - Super Smash Bros. 4
19 Tanooki Mario - Super Mario Bros. 3
20 Purple Knight - Castle Crashers
21 White Tanooki Mario - Super Mario 3D World
22 Sheng Hua Nan - Dong Dong Never Die
23 Milla Maxwell - Tales of Xillia
24 Sans - Undertale Sans or Sans the Skeleton is a character in the 2015 RPG Undertale created by Toby Fox. He is a lazy, pun-loving skeleton who is a supporting protagonist in the "pacifist" and "neutral" routes of Undertale, and a heroic antagonist/final boss of the "genocide" route. He is known for his incredibly difficult... read more

Sans is so powerful he could destroy the entire multiverse in a snap!

Not fair, this guy is super OP in both Undertale and Glitchtale.

25 Bayonetta - Super Smash Bros. 4 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.
