Top 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters

This is a list of 10 of the downright most useless characters and or companions in some of your favorite or just some popular games.
The Top Ten
1 Slippy - Starfox

Could anyone else really have been at the top of this list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters? Fox's companions aren't always the most useful bunch, but Slippy managed to crown himself king of the losers by constantly getting into trouble, requiring you either save his stupid, amphibious ass, or laugh as he gets shot down.

2 Magikarp - Pokemon Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves... read more

Sure, there are crazy pokefans who can game the system enough to make Magikarp awesome, but with an equal amount of work you could catch an army of Mewtwos and conquer the world with them. At base, Magikarp is useless its only attack is to flop around on the ground and do nothing.

Magikarp can evolve into Gyarados, so your argument is invalid!

How dare you, his splash can eradicate every Pokemon on Earth.

3 Jerry - Undertale
4 Edward - Final Fantasy IV

The only thing Edward has ever contributed to the world is when Tellah called him a "spoony bard" and he went down in meme history.

5 Doo-Whopper - Miitopia

I love Miitopia, but this enemy is just pointless! We already have Roll Hopper in the game! Not to mention that this game is about saving Mii faces, but defeating this monsters only releases Sun Glasses! Most characters on this list are just characters people don't like, but Doo-Whopper is just plain forgettable!

6 Pink Gold Peach - Mario Kart 8 Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

Why is this even a character to begin with? It's just a different colored Peach.

7 Wendy O. Koopa - Super Mario Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Super Mario Bros. franchise. She is the only female member of the Koopalings and is usually found assisting Bowser on his wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings. She first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3 in 1988 and since then has been a reappearing foe... read more

I like the Koopa Kids, but their fights in most of the games are SO boring!

8 Hop - Pokemon Sword/Shield
9 Red Dragon - Miitopia

There's already a Dragon boss in the post game of Miitopia called "Dragon Lord"!

Dragons are overrated, and fighting this in Uncharted Galados is VERY annoying!

10 Servbot - Marvel vs Capcom 2

Servbot may be tiny, but he makes up for it by dealing virtually no damage and having special/super moves that take forever to activate, leaving him constantly open to attack.

The Contenders
11 Pichu - Super Smash Bros. Melee Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves. After its... read more

This Pika-Clone's own lightning attacks hurt it, and it's such a lightweight that a single well-placed uppercut can knock it out even if its damage is as low as 20% (and we've seen it happen). Welcome to the list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters, Pichu.

12 Princess Elise - Sonic the Hedgehog Princess Elise the Third (ソレアナ公女エリス3世, Soreana Kōjo Erisu 3-sei, literally "Soleanna Princess Elise the Third") is one of the main characters in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

Because it's still a video game?

Hey, without Elise, sonic is dead. You put Elise instead of omochoa

13 Villager - Minecraft

He trades you emeralds,only available in extreme hills and trades.

14 Rosalina - Super Mario Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy 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... read more

Not even close to being useless. People blindly hate her so much that they can't be accurate.

15 Kimahri - Final Fantasy X

FFX's resident furball is also its most useless character anything he can do, everyone else can do better.

16 Rico - Xenogears

To put it kindly, Rico is crap, and his Gear (giant robot suit), is also crap. Every other character has some value to them, even the weirder ones. Maria may be weak on foot, but her Gear is incredibly powerful. ChuChu might be a strange, pink fuzzball, but it can cast healing spells on the other Gears, which is invaluable given the difficulty of recovering their hit points. Rico, however, has got nothing'.

17 Ashley Graham - Resident Evil 4 Ashley Graham is an American model. She has appeared on the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle. In addition, she appeared in several Levi's campaigns.

Why is this not higher on the list.

18 Peco - Breath of Fire III

His weird onion guy is easily overshadowed by the other, superior BoF III characters, and his inclusion makes you wonder if Capcom thought they were making their own kind of Moogles when coming up with this cute-ish animal/vegetable mascot.

19 The Alchemist - Ultima III: Exodus

That's right, we're going old-school. In a game full of wizards, warriors, and you, the Alchemist is the one character class with terrible stats, non-existent weapon and armor skills, and no magic to speak of. If you're going to play as an Alchemist you're better off just shutting the game down.

20 Papyrus - Undertale Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox. He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin. Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become... read more
21 Princess Daisy - Super Mario Bros 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.

Daisy debuted in Super Mario Land in 1989, after few other appearances she disappeared for nine years until she was brought back in Mario Tennis (2000).

Daisy... read more

She's just a dumb filler Peach with a louder voice.

22 Alphys - Undertale Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the... read more
23 Mumkhar - Xenoblade Chronicles
24 Mud - Gothic
25 Trevor Philips - Grand Theft Auto 5 Trevor Philips is a fictional character in Grand Theft Auto V, a video game in the Grand Theft Auto series made by Rockstar Games.

An irritating character that brings nothing to the game at all. A complete waste of space.
