Top 10 Reasons Why Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3ds Is Overrated

The Top Ten

1 Mega Man

I am aware of these things, but the hype is really oversized. And because of the arm cannon I believe megaman will be an overused and broken (but not bad) character. I do not hate megaman or PAC man, put the fact they get much more hype then they deserve disturbs me. - Garfieldtop10s

I agree with you megaman isn't the best newcomer because when I saw smash videos and when people played megaman they were saying that they were not good with megaman

I kinda understood Pac-Man being in this game because Nintendo's last few games were co developed by namco but I don't know where Mega Man came from in the Nintendo universe. Yes, we all knew he was a fantastic fighter but he is really irrelevant like a Pink Gold Peach in the Smash universe. - recaller

People are losing their minds about megaman. Megaman hasn't had a real game since the ps1 and he's just a mere icon now. He's irrelevant, half of his fans are retro gamers (people who get into old games in modern times) and the other half doesn't know who he is. I will NOT be using him. at least not much. - Garfieldtop10s

2 It's Overhyped

I don't understand why people praise this so much. It is a primitive game with appeal for 1-2 hours of "gameplay".

I just don't understand the love and appeal for this game series...

The Wii U version certainly is! The 3ds version... not so much.

Ssb4 beat mk8 in hype 88% to 12%. That is too much hype - Garfieldtop10s

3 It's Pulling a Call of Duty

I wouldn't say so because Wii U has tons more features in the game than the previous ones and an extended roster. They basically just took Brawl, made the graphics better, and added a bunch of new characters, and a variety of new features and modes. - Mcgillacuddy

Don't get me wrong. I love Nintendo. But Mario kart 8 actually changed from mk7 (like actually being good, for instance) but I see no changes from brawl other than graphics - Garfieldtop10s

Agreed. Nintendo is the McDonald's of the gaming industry in regards to merchandising and franchises. Ssb WiiU along with a few others are like taking the leftover chicken nuggets, dunking them into powdered sugar and reselling them as the new sugar nugget! To me this is just another addition to an overly exhausted menu...

Nintendos call of duty is alive

4 The Stupid GameCube Controller Adapter

Literally all smash players are hyping over this like it is their god. I don't have a problem with the wii you pro controller, making this adaptor pointless. - Garfieldtop10s

What? People are arguing about this? Just because other controllers will work, that doesn't mean we can't use a GameCube controller if we have the option to use it! If you don't like it, don't use it!

You know what, I prefer using the wii mote alone - PPPPPPINGAS


5 The Game Is Entitled "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U" Although It Could Use A Much More Creative Entitlement

Why couldn't they call it Smash Bros Legacy or Ranged or something! - myusernameisthis

At least Super Smash Bros you and Super Smash bros 3DS would have worked better, following the pattern set by games such as Super Mario 64. The "For" in the title really bugs me.

I personally call it Smash Bros U and Smash Bros 3DS, it's easier that way than Nintendo's mouth-full of a title.

Why don't they just title it super smash bros 4

6 Wii Fit Trainer

I agree. Where is Snake? - Chaotixhero

I don't know why she's here, but it's really pointless - Garfieldtop10s

7 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.

I know she's become relevant recently but she's everywhere now. - Garfieldtop10s

Yeah now the due to daisy in games is not 2% why Nintendo she is pretty good she now only appears in spin offs Nintendo now you made chance with rosalina not like 99% and that is a really good reasons why now like my friends and miiverse like daisy now every one wants it now to be like 99%

Rosalina is great! She & Princess Daisy should appear in more games than Princess Peach.

You stupid Daisy Fans should get off this list! - DCfnaf

8 Too Many Third Party Characters

Sonic and Snake in Brawl was a big deal because there had never been any non-Nintendo characters in and Smash game before. 3DS/WiiU despite the removal of Snake went much too far with this, and the Smash Ballot certainly didn't help (and I'd be saying that even if some other non-Nintendo character besides Sarah Palin the Nasty Gun Toting Stripper had been chosen, the problem was that it was open to non-Nintedo suggestions). The Smash series was supposed to be Nintendo's love letter to itself. Also the novelty of Mario vs Sonic in any way has long since worn off.

9 It's On the Wii U and the 3DS

Yeah, because Nintendo making one of their most anticipated games for more than one system so more people can play it especially in these tough economic times where not everyone has both consoles is a bad thing.

I here they're going to be different, and that Nintendo is delaying wii you to make it a better game. also, some people may wait for the wii you since playing it on a handheld may sound awkward for them. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Being on the 3ds will mean wii you sales won't rise by much. - Garfieldtop10s

10 Bayonetta

As with Sonic and Megaman, she brought rabid and annoying fanbase the Smash fandom was just fine existing separately from.

Nintendo trying WAY too hard to defy their "for kids" reputation

What exactly, is wrong with them having mature games/characters? - TheMaelstromKing

Too cheap, too obnoxious, too inappropriate.

"She should be a non dlc character" No, she shouldn't be in "Smash" at all!

The Contenders

11 It's Become Way Too Difficult To Hit Your Opponents

Maybe you should get good.

The dodge maneuvers are way overpowered now. It often really doesn't help all that much to get good at the game, believe it or not. - xandermartin98

Everything misses

12 Sonic & Mega Man

Who also brought their annoying rabid fans. Incidentally same with Bayonetta.

13 No New Character Move Sets

This means lack of innovation - Garfieldtop10s

So you obvoiusly know nothing since they will be having custom move sets - llamabaconllama37

Laugh out loud you =r just now complaining about this DK's move set has also been the same unless I'm wrong... besides we don't need new movesets with the astronomically huge character roster. - HeavyDonkeyKong

14 The Maps Don't Look Fun

Actually, they are the opposite of generic. And the fact that you're going off trailers makes me question this entire list...

I've seen the trailers and the maps are really generic looking - Garfieldtop10s

15 Pac Man

This is pulling a pink gold peach in the Mario universe. They put a totally random character in with no past relevance in Mario games except the arcade gp games. But they were made by namco. Stupid self promoters. - Garfieldtop10s

Think about it. Pac man is an icon in video gaming, and is probably the most famous character. So no he is not random. - Drawbox

"Pac-Man"?! More like "Pac-Whiz". laugh out loud

16 It's Just Brawl Except Done Right
17 Princess Daisy Not in the 3DS Version
18 Meta Knight Is Nerfed

Why can't Meta Knight glide anymore in this game. I like playing as him in Brawl

This is a good thin troll

19 Cloud

why him? - ParkerFang

1. He was an overrated and overhyped character to begin with. Maybe his original game brought some "new" to the table back in the day, but it hasn't aged well. And even then he was such a wuss; he only got popular because of his original game's hype.
2. Every. Body. Online. Uses. Him. There might as well not be anyone else available, not even Howintheworlddidshebeatoutliterallyeveryotherpossiblecharacternetta.
3. Way too cheap moves, hence why he's so overused online.
4. Like the aforementioned Whyissheinthegamenetta, he has fans who just want to use him to beat up "all those lame characters". Some of those fans are even Nintendo haters.

20 Eggman & K. Rool were not Playable

And don't anybody tell me that nobody voted for them in the Smash Ballot

21 Yoshi Is Way Overpowered
22 Bayonetta and Cloud's movesets
23 Too many Fire Emblem characters!

Seriously, FE may be selling like hot cakes, but it doesn't excuse that almost none of them are Nintendo's ALL Stars! And they're all way too over powered, like with Cloud and Bayonetta!

24 Everyone online uses Cloud or Bayonetta only

You might encounter an Ike player, but even then you might as well buy a lottery ticket.

They're neither first-party nor do they come with the game.

25 Little Mac

Little Mac is op.

I don't think SSB4 is overrated but I think Little Mac is and I hate him.
