Top Ten Reasons Why Super Smash Bros Brawl Is Bad

You know what we hate? Super Smash Bros Brawl. HERE'S WHY!

Note: I love super smash bros brawl. I don't hate the game.

The Top Ten

1 Meta Knight is Broken

Broken? I use him all the time. Just spam the tornado move like a troll and no one will touch you.

But don't take it from me, I do that the whole game and I still lose. - keycha1n

You got the meaning of "broken" wrong. The reason he's called broken is because he's too good. - MrLoser

There are reasons why he was banned from all competitive play, fox was not nearly as broken in melee

What?! I'm like a boss with him! I could Beat the Luigi lover with my eyes closed. - Therandom

I use him all the time. He's literally my favorite SSBB characters. - AlphaQ

Just Shut Up People Nintendo Just Won't Accept That - s646451

Reimu and Marisa need to be in this game

They should have made Cirno into this game

We need Koishi

3 Lucas is Overpowered

He is anything but overpowered.

Luca is a talentless fat oaf. - AlphaQ

Lucas is borderline trash. - WonkeyDude98

How? , Chaotixhero, Maybe You Just Aren't Good That At This Game - VideoGamefan5

4 Sonic Can Swim

Do you really think Nintendo will really make a mechanic for Sonic not to swim (You think he just immediately DROWN IN THE WATER) - s646451

Peter Griffin: Oh My God!, Who The HELL Cares?! - VideoGamefan5

Is that really a good reason

This is a good thing. - AlphaQ

5 The Great Maze

This was badass. It was just a bit hard but sometimes hard stuff is good for you because we sometimes need a challenge. - AlphaQ

I Don't Understand why People Hate This Level I Had a Lot of Fun with It - s646451

The great maze is awesome! It's a hard time consuming challenge,sorry everything has to be basic for you

I really couldn't stand this part of the game. It ruined the whole experience for me. I actually stopped playing the game until halfway into the Wii U's Lifespan, roughly a few months before Sm4sh came out. The only way I was able to beat it was with a guide online.

6 The Stages Get Boring

The Super Mario Sunshine stage is the only good stage that never gets old in my opinion. - Chaotixhero

The stages r awesome

Bad Reason - VideoGamefan5

Bad Reason. - AlphaQ

7 The Ice Climbers are the Weakest Characters in the Game

The ice climbers are 2nd on the tier list. Look up your facts next time.

Ice climber are awesome noting to do with this

Ice Climbers Always Ducked. - AlphaQ

Chaingrabbing. Look up "Ice Climber chaingrabbing" and you will reconsider your vote. - MrLoser

8 Solid Snake

"Solid Snake may be a iconic character in the Metal Gear Solid series but he look really out of place in a game with Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, and etc. - Chaotixhero" Exactly. I also hate how he overshadows everyone else in this game and how later installments were judged on whether or not he was in there.

He's s good fighter!

Snake Is Awesome - VideoGamefan5

Thank you, Chaotixhero! Finally someone else who doesn't really want him back!

9 Where Was Sonic in the Story All This Time?

You can't blame them for not putting Sonic in earlier. Plus his entrance was pretty awesome anyway. - Garythesnail

I love this game, but you are right! - HeavyDonkeyKong

And you call me too slow? Where were you by the way? - Chaotixhero

His entrance was badass though...Sonic is awesome. - AlphaQ

He entered around the last chapters and beat the living hell out of Tabuu - AlphaQ

10 I can't select Zero Suit Samus in the character selection screen

I wanna play Zero Suit Samus from the start. Why do I have to get a smash ball in order to play her? That's stupid. - Chaotixhero

Hold plus down in the selection when being samus while the stage is loading up - YOSHIA2121

That is a problem. Why not just make it two seperate characters? - IronSabbathPriest

Play Project M, simple as that!

This was probably due to sonic being added late in development of the game.not really a reason to call the game bad in my opinion - Justinianism101

The Newcomers

? Laggy Online Multiplayer

100% true

The Contenders

11 The Subspace Minions Look Like Characters You See in Kingdom Hearts

Actually, The Subspace Enemies Are The Reason I Haven't Completed The Subspace Emissary - VideoGamefan5

They look creepy ugly brawl is awesome melee and smash Wii u suck are overrated

What kind of reason is that?!

That's like saying Grand Theft Auto V sucks because Michael looks like John Marston

Do you mean the Heartless or Nobodies?

12 Tripping

The person who made this list is tripping. - AlphaQ

lol - YOSHIA2121

13 No L-cancelling

Does it really matter. Brawl is still a bad game even if it had this

Bye Melee fans! - DCfnaf

How is this a reason to hate brawl? And anyways L canceling is one of the reasons Melee is a atrociest piece of garbage

I didn't mean vote for this because it's a pretty stupid reason - LarrytheFairy

14 There are Fewer Female Characters

Brawl should have Amy, Rouge, and Blaze from Sonic.

We need feminism

There should have been Lilina from Fire Emblem as a playable character

15 Project M

Why is this a bad thing? You Make it Project M.

Want to play faster and with Mewtwo? Project M is the mod for you. - DaisyandRosalina

Project M is damn awesome. - WonkeyDude98

Project m is a fan mod, - VideoGamefan5

16 Princess Peach ruined it!

Just because you don't like Peach doesn't mean she ruined the game. Ass.

I'm sick of this visitor who hates every game that has Peach. - DCfnaf

Peach is only one characters and she isn't even THAT bad. - AlphaQ

Seriously? She was cool! - DaisyandRosalina

17 No Wavedashing

Melee elitist confirmed.

18 Horrible wi-fi

Play sbb4

19 They Cut Mewtwo

I prefer Brawl to Melee slightly (less bottom-tier characters, I don't like the Gamecube Controller, buffering makes making inputs easier), but among tripping and hitstun cancelling, this really got under my skin. They were able to add Jigglypuff back (even though the difference between her viability between games is night and day) as well as add Toon Link and Wolf because they had spare time but Mewtwo was cut because of time restraints? Really? - WonkeyDude98

He's better than Jigglypuff but no they cut him (alongside with Pichu) BUT NOT JIGGLYPUFF! - quintonshark8713

They got rid of Mewtwo But Not Jigglypuff? How dare they.

It's only one character... - DaisyandRosalina

20 They Nerfed Captain Falcon, Jigglypuff and Peach

The lack of hitstun is what made them bad. Their previously amazing combo game has been lost in the lack of hitstun


21 It Has an Annoying Fanbase

Melee and Smash 4 ones are bad as well. - DaisyandRosalina

Because melees is WAAAYYY BETTER. - DCfnaf

That is true.


22 Mortal Kombat X is Better

Fire emblem sucks

What Kind of F#! $ing Reason is That? - s646451

Come on, people, it's opinion, not fact. For some people, Mortal Kombat X might be better. I somewhat enjoyed it but, never really played a Super Smash Bros game so I wouldn't say MK is better, let alone MKX.

NO - DaisyandRosalina

23 Ganondorf is a rip off of Captain Falcon

He has been since melee, not a good reason to hate on brawl

24 They Nerfed Fox

Fox was op in melee, only logical to nerf him

And meta knight is not Op for some reason?

He was OP are you surprised? - DaisyandRosalina

25 Sakurai Nerfed Mario In It


26 There Are Fewer Villain Characters

Yeah why master hand not playable now


27 Terrible Controls


28 Items are Unbalanced

So? Nobody gives a crap about items


29 Terrible Gameplay
30 It's Too Slow

Play Melee then.

31 It's a Wii Game

Hur-dur it's a Wii game so I hate it. Use good reasoning.

...and your point is...?

32 It's Hard to Get a Smash Ball

You hate this game because you can't get one item...

33 No Rosalina

Rosalina sucks. She's an overrated Mario character who's popular because of looks. Yep, she's immensely boring to watch in the new game.

*Rosalina is not that bad.
*How is Rosalina overrated?
*Her looks isn't the only reason why she's loved. For example, the main reason why I love her is because of her story and who she is. - Jasmine21064

Hur-dur I hate thos game because my favorite character isn't in it. Grow up.

So what? - yunafreya648

34 The Characters in Brawl Look Dusty Compared to the Characters in Melee
35 Some Recoveries are Horrible in this Game
36 Characters We Love Die All the Time


37 Rumble Falls
38 Skyworld and Ike Don't Go Together

(Smashing Head on Table) Your Just Finding a Way to Bich on this game at this point

Edit: Now I Know My Everyone Hates This - s646451

39 The Weapons that You Can't Drop

It's terrible - HaddonJordan

40 Only 2 Third Party Characters

Pac Man was planned for Brawl, but was cut due to the fact that Sakurai didn't know Pac Man World didn't exist and thought his pizza design was his only look.

41 The Normal Controls are Pretty Bad

With a gamecube/wii classic controller the controls are great, but with wiimote with or without nunchuck (which is what most people have) the controls suck

42 It Isn’t Competitively Viable

I love the game myself but I wanted to add this because it’s basically why everyone doesn’t like it and all the reasons given in this list are so stupid. I find this to be a problem but again I’m fine with it because I love a lot of the extra content. Also it’s not like you can’t go back to play melee or play smash 4 if you want to play competitively. - Justinianism101
