Strongest Super Smash Bros. Brawl Characters

The Top Ten

1 Meta Knight Meta Knight 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 more.


Meta knight is legit on ground and air

Meta knight da bess meta knight da bess

Meta knight is broken, then they saw it and he got nerfed

2 Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Donkey Kong is an arcade game released by Nintendo in 1981. It is an early example of the platform game genre, as the gameplay focuses on maneuvering the main character across a series of platforms while dodging and jumping over obstacles.

It looks like Donkey Kong is on steroids he can beat every opponents

Look at those muscles...

Ganondorf, Samus, zero suit Samus, Ike, sonic, pikachu, pit, ness, link, snake, Marth, captain falcon, Zelda, sheik, mr game and watch, peach, lucario, toon link, meta knight, wario, Mario, Bowser, luigi, yoshi, diddy kong, fox, falco, wolf, Kirby, king dedede, and Pokemon trainer can beat the hell out of donkey kong now look how weak he is.

Donkey kong can make shock waves by hitting the ground.he could smash you. He has a punch that gives over 20%damage. He is super strong no doubt

3 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.

Bowser can crush with Bowser Bombs and Flying Slams, his fire is good for racking up damage, his recovery's pretty sweet, and his smashes are the most powerful in the whole game.

Bowser is massive he is op he is by far the most powerful character and the most damaging moves I always use him

Bowser is too powerful! His head deals 20-25 damage. His fire breath deals 5-7 damage. His punch is deal 15-20 damage! That's why he's my most character! I used him for 3 years and he has 4,750 KOs! Bowser RULE AND HE'S FIRST PLACE!

Bowser behind KIRBY?!?!

This is the STRONGEST ssbb characters list, and Bowser should clearly be ahead of Kirby and Pikachu. Sure, they have good smash moves, but Bowser's are WAY more powerful. - Blubbydubber1

4 Ike Ike Ike is the main character in the video game Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance for the Nintendo GameCube and one of the main characters of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn for the Wii.

Ike is the strongest character in the game! Even Ganondorf is weaker. Since Ike is the strongest, he is obviously the best. No question.

Ike will destroy your opponents if played right. I for one think he is a GOD

Ike is easily the most powerful character in the game. His special attack is incredibly powerful if fully charged or not. If you are able to charge it on somebody who has 50 damage, they're gone.

Ike may be slow but no one can match his strength

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

What's great about link is that he has a balance between his long range and close range attacks so it gives you the chance to fire your arrows from a distance to bring up the hit ratio and then come in for the final blow with the master sword.

I think link is pretty powerful because he has this bow and that could kill your target from a distance and also his. Sawd is quite powerful at anything like killing jiggly puff it's pretty simple I agree link would be at least sixth on the power list

His up smash is great. 2 slices gaining damage and a final slash doing good knock back. It's a sure kill if your oppenent has over 70 damage

At least he's stronger than Mario, the character who's average in everything.

6 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.

Worst character in Brawl. Best final smash.

The only reason he is down here is because he is slow. If he were faster, he'd be number 1. Hands down the strongest character in the game. Volcano kick, warlock punch? Amazing. He can throw down for sure - dragonfly99

Come on! Have you seen his Warlock Punch? Plus, most of his other moves are pretty strong if you'd ask me. This guy is easily the strongest out of all the smashers.

He was the loweset rated character in the brawl tier list. How is he this high?

7 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 should be fairly high on this list. On the first Smash game, he was quite literally the strongest charecter. With his special moves, light weight to move around, and smash attacks, he can ace. Although in Melee, he was one of the worse charecters, by the time Brawl came out, he changed, for the better. In the SubSpace Emissary, he played the most important roles, and having a large amount to do. And in Smash 4, he still remains a good fighter, with his inhale getting copy abilities from fighters, chargeable hammer, which easily knocks opponents off the stage, decent up and down moves, and good final smashes. His only weakness, is actually, his weight, or lack of weight. He can be knocked around so easily, but due to his speed, he can succeed.

Kirby is one of the strongest characters in Smash, and should be pretty high up on this list.

Kirby rules, he has so many strong moves and combos and he can fly. I play as him all the time. - lukestheman4

8 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.

Pikachu is Great! His Attacks Are Strong, And He's Easy To Use! He's Also Hard To Catch!

Thunderbolt, it can make him cheap, but besides that I use him all the time, and with all of his moves, if you don't, than I can see why;

One of the easiest characters to control and has some very strong attacks. His Final Smash is what makes Pikachu even more awesome. Pikachu is a character that's easy to master and can make you fare very well among some of the strongest players.

Pikachu is pretty epic. He has a good balance between his offense and his speed (Normally one is sacrificed for the other) and he has a great recovery move. I recommend him if you are looking for a character that is fast but has that brute strength to back it up.

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

He is fast catchy strongest and easy to learn how to use

I like his falco punch

Really? Meta Knight in the top... Meta Knight is so overrated, their comments are like; "Meta Knight is so strong and so fast"... Please, Captain Falcon is faster and stronger than Meta Knight that's sure.

Captain Falcon is really cool! I like how he said "bolted kick"! His punch is powerful. His final smash is insane! Oh one more thing. FALCO PUNCH!

10 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.

Shaggy would be proud (shaggy- 1989-2019

Always when I have luigi I always win even the last boss fight I won luigi needs to be 1 strangest character

Luigi is boss I never lose as him my record is 1893-0when using him

! I didn't know Luigi us is the strongest I love this guy I didn't know Luigi is the strongest


The Newcomers

? Iris Heart

The Contenders

11 Zelda/Shiek

But since Zelda is a separate character now Zelda is useless. - Kittenpaws01

Zelda is actually really powerful! All her moves send people flying! She is hard to master, but when you do you can smash anyone! Not many people know you can control her warping and her fire attack. She should be high on the list because she is so great

People hate Zelda because we have Samus. Samus acts like a boy and Zelda turns into a boy. Peach? What do Peach do? Bring out a toad? Zelda actually uses crystals and fire to attack.

Zelda is a beast with poor attacking. Also, maybe the best Super Smash Bros. Female! Meta Knight's the best though. Why Link? Link sucks.

12 Ness Ness

Ness should be in the top 10! He has a wicked strong baseball bat smash attack which can work like a HOME-RUN BAT if his opponent's damage is over 100%!

Ness can burn the heck out of his opponents! I was playing with my friend once, and I was throwing flames over and over! And he also has REALLY cool PSI attacks.

ness is cool and has wikid pk and psi attacks

His grab attack is the most powerful grab attack in the game.

13 Lucas

Lucas is the best when he use his smash ball it will be like giant thing will fall down smash you

he is cool

I like Lucas better than Ness. So upset he is DLC in ssb4

I don't play unless with him, his PK Attacks are the sht

14 Wolf

This is a lie he is the best if you know how to use him if you don't think that I don't care

15 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.

Mario smash attacks are the best

Best Meteor Smash In History.

Some of the best K. O ' s in the game and defense option.

Should be at the tippy top of this page

16 Toon Link Toon Link

Toon link is extremely strong, powerful, fast and very agile

I never had lost a game with toon link

Just then I did a test on all the characters. Lucas, zelda, and meta knight was pretty good. But, toon link was one of the easiest to play with because he was extremely strong with the smashes, final smash, and also he is extremely fast. There for toon link is the best

Toon link is one of the most strongest characters in my book his final smash almost never fails and he has an unlimited amount of bombs and bow and arrows plus all his attacks are very strong

I really like toon link he is very easy to control but I think wolf is the most powerful

This loser deserves to die

17 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.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a very strong guy if you can learn how manage his super fast speed, fast attacks, and his super fast final smash, in which Sonic turns into Super Sonic.

I think sonic is a really good character. I think he should be in the top 3. One reason is because he super fast and hard to stop Also because he can jump really high.

Sonic is strongest because his final smash is hard to dodge and do lots of damage

He is awesome in many ways

18 Marth Marth Marth is a fictional character from the Fire Emblem series, developed by Intelligent Systems and owned by Nintendo. He is the protagonist and Lord class character in the first and the third games in the series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, more.

the best


Marth is the best character!

Why is Marth so low he can rack up damage with dancing blade to trap most opponents and if this doesn't work the opponent is to slow to hit him if you use the hit-and-run strategy

So yeah Marth is epic

19 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.

He is the best I use if a lot he needs to be at least first he is the strongest and when he mega evoles he is amazing

Man I like mastered this dude. - MoldySock

Awesome combos in the game and better combos in project m


20 Mr. Game and Watch Mr. Game and Watch

Oil spill oone hit KO's

He doesn't look like much, but he's a really powerful!

His 9 hammer is deadly!

21 Peach 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 a Beast.

Her slaps are fast and do great damage.

Her upskirt-kick is problably the strongest in the whole game.

She has the most unfair use of the Fan... Just try to escape... you can't.

Of course she is I mean her smash some say you can only do either heal or smash but I say both and toad very helpful

She's the best of the day

The strongest, and yes, I am being serious!

22 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. He is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi and Mario franchises.

He is so cute! Yet his down B is OP.

His up 2 move is a ko if your high enough

You do realize that he isn't as bad as you think he is, I mean, he is grabs, and his aerial attacks are good enough. plus, his final smash is BEAST!

Yoshi is super dumb and he shouldn't be on this li st. h e sucks in ssbb. His aerial moves aren't even that go od. a nd his attacks are so useless and stup id. o verall, I think T.Yoshisaur Munchakoopas is a weak baby female turtle dino thing. Besides, if he actually is a dinosaur, then why is he terrible? His grabs are also predictable. He always gets his ass kicked, he's way to friendly

23 Pokemon Trainer

Good thing is you can Change Pokemon when the opponents final smash. But I don't use him

24 Pit Pit Pit is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, first appearing in Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986 and later appearing in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy in 1991.

My boy Pit kicks ass if you know how to use him. Win in nearly every match with him.

Pit is super balanced out, unlike other classes where they usually have lots of strength but then a terrible weakness which is always getting shown, like Ike's final smash


Okay, so I sit down on the couch with my cousin (playing this for the first time mind) and he tells me the controls and stuff (I still don't get it.)

And I smacked him. Pit's gonna Wreck. Your. Face.

Not your ordinary angel

25 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

Every body hates diddy kong

Diddy Kong sucks no one likes him

26 Snake

Snake has very many advantages. He has a variety of moves, whether shooting long distance, or his powerful kicks. Snake is hard to learn more, and to be honest he needs almost all of his moves to win a game. But he can plant mines, blow people off the map when they have low damage with his powerful bazooka, and he is powerful against both strong and weak characters. His one weakness so far (so far bein over 5 years) is Ike, with his super powerful and long range A-button move, and Zero-Suit Samus, when she uses her side whip. But Snake over-all is probably one of the best characters in the game, for sure. I am loyal to Snake forever!

His punches and kicks are super fast and powerful and he has good weapons.

Amazing melees and op explosives if timed right

Snake is vary cool super strong and powerful

27 King Dedede King Dedede King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.


No thanks! I'm good.
DDD has a powerful and fast grab, he is also, with ganondorf, the strongest and heaviest character in the game.

28 Fox


His fiery attack thing has saved me more times than I can remember plus he is kinda agile

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

He will be in the next one

Up b is help

30 Falco

Why is Falco down here?
He is Great

31 Ice Climbers Ice Climbers

I guess the reason Ice Climbers is so low on the list is because everyone's trying to forget that Chain Grabbing used to be a thing.

One of the best characters in the game if you know how to use them

They are the worst!

Back in

32 Mii

Mii fighters can have custom move sets and equipment.

The brawler is amazing and this should be nom 1

33 R.O.B.

The best

R.o.b is awesome but a little slow.

R.O. B is one of the most powerful people in the whole game. His punches are hard to dodge. He can shoot fire out of his feet from the side and from the air. He can throw projectile weapons. His laser is a good way to slow down opponents. His taunts are powerful. His special move is cool because you can still move around and fight while using it. And it is very hard to throw him out of the arena because he has jet pack feet. He's a cool guy to play with.

Suck but like the lazer in eyes and final smash

34 Wario Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.

, Cool, and llove the mootoocyyclle moove

He,s gassy

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

She is the most amazing charter she defeat everybody😯

Oh my god. If I'm the only one that votes 4 samus I'm going to scream. Samus is sooo strong, she should be in the top 3.😲

36 Mega Mewtwo

He is a new character in the smash bros switch

37 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.
38 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.

He washed the charater a way with his giant blade

He should be #1

39 Waluigi Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows more.
40 Little Mac Little Mac

Little Mac is the main protagonist in Nintendo's Punch-Out! series of video games. He first appeared in Mike Tyson's punch-Out!. In a commercial for the Wii title,he is portrayed by boxer Paul Malignaggi. He is the smallest and youngest of all the boxers in the games,and his signature attack is the "Star Uppercut". His design was changed for the SNES Super Punch-Out!,but reverted to his original design in the Wii title. In the NES and Wii games,Little Mac is accompanied by Doc Louis,his trainer.

41 Ridley Ridley Ridley is a villain from the Metroid series and a character from the Super Smash Bros. series. He's Samus Aran's archenemy and has been fighting her since day one with the first Metroid game in 1986. When Samus was three years old, Ridley murdered her parents in front of her. He is a member of the Space more.

I think that the more characters their are the bigger the variety is which can make the game more interesting and ridley seems to be really powerful.

Ridley deserves to be in SSBU. His taunts and heavy hits are just so well done.
he should be a more important and loved character. I'm just saying, meta knight just is not as interesting and good. I have troubles when M.K falls. its either me that sucks or M.K that sucks. I would much prefer Ridley.

42 Olimar Olimar

That's what I said! He is an underdog!

I like him, he is like an underdog.

He has an alternate

I don't know how, but he had some serious swag back in brawl. He won against HECKING LUCARIO!

Villager is so good I call him the killager for a reason

Do I even need to say anything?

44 King K. Rool King K. Rool King K. Rool is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Donkey Kong video game franchise, as well as the archenemy of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

The new #1 fighter in super s.ash do

45 Star Fox 2
46 Peach/Toad

Toad should be playable, Peach is... A MISTAKE! Why does she imitate Daisy, does she want Daisy to get rejected, the look is rejected like a ghetto Daisy, and Peach sucks. Need more females! How about Daisy? She could send sharp flower petals?!

Definitely not Peach but yeah Toad! Toad's attack rocks and it damages anyone far away or even close. Peach/Toad is way better than regualr Peach. Toad and Diddy's jetpack are handicap but AWESOME!

The peachescare all mine! It heals you 30

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

Why is Jigglypuff so high in this list, Jigglypuff is cute and strong. She is too good in the air with the cool powerful attacks. Even she can cast rest to get her opponents to their doom, she can also put people to sleep and her Final Smash is a bit of a problem. So I like Jigglypuff, I'd maybe use her forever!


I happen to lose most of the time I use Jigglypuff, its final smash is not powerful, and Jigglypuff can't seem to make any good scores in home-run hitter (Stadium).

48 Dark Pit Dark Pit

He has the most balanced fight style in the game

49 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.
