The Top Ten
1 Super Sonic (Sonic)

This is an awesome final smash once you have mastered Sonic's gameplay. I always end up taking 1 or 2 lives of up to 3 players with this, and it gets easier to control the more you use Sonic in Brawl.

Sonic gets the final smash. You start to cry as sonic turns gold and starts flying. "I've show you! Arggh! "super sonic pushes Mario of battlefield. Sonic turns normal again. "And the winner is:Sonic! " "Hey can we do this again? "

As much as I'm not the biggest Sonic fan, this is impossible to dodge if the player can control Super Sonic well. He's insanely fast, and every time you are hit you go flying.

Sonic Definitely is #1! He is because he is invincible, fast, and could kill you over and over again! He will send your doom into fear, and will make you fly of the stage!

2 Grenade Launcher (Solid Snake)

Yea, all my friends just self destructed just as I activated his Final Smash. It's really good.

The grenade launcher can kill someone twice if you're accurate.

His grenade launcher is totally boss style and so is he!

When I get it my brother just walks away from the wii, lol

3 Great Aether (Ike)

Ike's FInal Smash is a powerful but difficult final smash, you must hit a target to activate this then if you hit the target is nearly always killed in the carnage of Ike's sword. However it is possible to survive or dodge/block this attack. This only affacts one or two players if you are lucky or very accurate

Ike is the Boss when it comes to final smashes. To me at least. This attack helped me a dozen of matches against my brother. On a scale of 1-10 I give this an 9. Still my opinion. That's why he is one of the top 3 strongest

Once he has his final smash, run for your life. This guy's gonna get you and kill you like Jason Voorhees came to town.

It's so satisfying to throw your opponent to the top of the screen and slash him with your sword!

4 Giga Bowser (Bowser)

This one basically lets you become more powerful for a little while. I think this final smash should have returned to ultimate because his ultimate smash is shorter

this is the first final smash I ever used in battle in ultimate and I got screen ko's both times I used it. I think its good when that happens

What I like about Giga Bowser is that, unlike many of the other Smashes, he actually takes some skill to use, and isn't ridiculously overpowered like C. Falcon.

Super Giant Bowser Final Smash is awesome! Sure, you can get damage while being him, but it's still awesome, a lot better than the other Final Smashes.

5 Landmaster (Fox/Falco/Wolf)

Instant killing is cool, however how would like to kill 1 or 2 times over! With a tiny bit of skill falco can easily fly players of screen getting as many KO's as his time limit will allow

I do not like this one because you can die really fast. It is so weak I just can not stand for this one. How come falco and wolf has the same thing!

With the final smash, I could kill the three players twice just catching the ball once!

If the stage is small enough you kill everyone easily.

6 Super Dragon (Yoshi)

Very similar to sonic's and is just as deadly if you can use it right. It is so much fun to use, and it is a very underrated final smash.

With practice it easily becomes one of the most powerful moves in the whole game. Sad it was nerfed it SSB4... But it's still greatly destructive. All hail Yoshi!

Super fun, and good to use, just a little hesitant when spitting fireballs

With Yoshi as my main in every game, no question I would vote for him.

7 Zero Laser (Samus Aran)

Awesome, let's you turn to ZSS and is a whole straight line of doom, that if you get caught 1 hit KO

The Zero Laser is so cool. I would have called it, "Big Giant Unescapable Laser of Doom", yeah. It feels good once you use it and get the feeling, "Ahh, I just owned my enemies." Try it, it is so cool.

There is a reason why this final smash can only be used each two smash balls you get: IT IS OVERPOWERED AND KILL FREAKINH EVERYONE!

8 Blue Falcon (Captain Falcon)

You have to admit, but this is one of the best final smashes. Its even better than great aether. Captain falcon's final smash is pretty much a guaranteed KO

Blue Falcon sweeps in and kills you immediately. Period.

I hate it when he does this move

The Blue Falcon is coming! And ther's no way to go!

9 Triforce Slash (Link/Toon Link)

I think the Triforce Slash is better than the Great Aether. Here are a couple of reasons why I think this:

1) It deals almost twice as much damage.
2) It you're close enough to an enemy, you can paralyze them when you shoot the beam of light out of Link's/Toon Link's hand.
3) It has a better chance of knocking the enemy off the stage.
4) The beam of light that shoots out of Link's/Toon Link's travels further than the arch of flame that races out of Ike's blade.
5) It can be performed anywhere! The Great Aether is only performed at the top center of the screen.
6) It is slightly more colorful.

P.S. Reasons 1-5 are true! Look it up!

, I love this final smash so much I literally play as Link and Toon Link (mostly Link) all the time. The way it looks it's so cool I can't explain it and the way they do it, it is so awesome. Even though Link is low on the teir list I love playing as him. I can never stop playing as these two characters they are so cool. And I like playing as them for reason I won't tell.

Link's Triforce Slash is (in my opinion) one of the best Final Smashes in the game. It's powerful, but not overpowered, escapable, but still reliable. It's what I think a Final Smash should be, a helpful, fun super-attack that deals a TON of damage, and can really help you turn the tables in a pinch, but doesn't go overboard and let you kill everyone twice.

Sure, Fox's final smash is dope, but with Toon Link your dead meat. As soon as he's caught you, your done for. There's absolutely no escape. Triforce is an instant ko.

10 End of Day (Captain Olimar)

There is no way that you will escape this Final Smash without taking damage. It affects the entire stage, can trap your opponent in the ground so they can't escape, causes damage with the Bulborbs, and finishes them off with the ship crashing. A truly epic attack, worthy of such a great character.

I'm not just saying this because I like pikmin games, but his final smash is the best. He digs everyone into the ground and flies off and your opponents lose from 100-to 300 percent of damage. And than crashes back down to the stage kocking out almost all of his opponents.

End of Day deserves my vote. Not only do I love Captain Olimar and his Pikmin, but End of Day is a VERY effective final smash.

Flies away.
Bulborbs are attacking everyone back on stage.
Crash lands back on stage.
Sends everyone flying.

Very lethal final smash. With this smash, all of your opponents can take monster damage, and the only way it wont kill them is if it's on a big stage. But you can get over 100% damage!

The Contenders
11 Critical Hit (Marth)

This is the most powerful final smash, along with Samus and Sonic. If you know how to use it properly it becomes the ultimate death weapon. How many other final smashes can kill you instantly, even if you have 0 damage? Not many. The only way you wouldn't die from it is if you happen to be in a inclosed area, and even then you still get like 80 extra damage. So unless your protected by surrounding platforms. The equation is simple.
Smash ball + Marth + good aim = guaranteed death sentence

I agree that it is the best, but to the person under me, no it is not the only instakill smash in the game.. Laugh out loud.

I think it's the best for flat stages but amazing for all stages if you use it right

You'll be totaled and totally screwed if you're hit.

12 Beast Ganon (Ganondorf)

Just like everything else about Ganondorf, this thing hits you HARD! If you get stuck in front of him, it is impossible to dodge, so if you have a high damage percentage when that happens, your death is definitely upon you.

That big lion rhino thing is awesome if your looking at his face your a dead man

If you are in front you're slaughtered

If Ganondorf gets his final smash, you are skrewed

13 Triple Finish (Pokémon Trainer)

Why he can do a fire joined with grass and water and make it giant

He is the best pokemon trainer ever

You don't want to get caught

Red sent out Charizard, Ivysaur, and Squrtle, all three used an op move called TRIPPLE FEENASH

14 PK Starstorm (Ness/Lucas)

PK Starstorm has my vote. Lucas and Ness look badass when the smash is used in midair, and the falling stars are deadly, especially towards the end of the smash because they fall fast and are tightly packed together. Plus, Lucas' PK Thunder hits multiple times and causes slight flinch, good for stopping enemies!

First of all, when playing as these two, PK Thunder can be used to grab the Smash Ball much faster. Then BOOM, you can use it literally right away! No aiming, you're of course invincible, and you don't have to do anything to hit the enemy. Just sit back and watch the stars fall.

Although this is an epic, unpredictable final smash, I agree that PK Starstorm should be given to Kumatora or Paula if they were added. PK Love for Lucas could prevent opponents from fighting, and heal Lucas in the process. That would definitely be my favourite.

Most people don't seem to realize that you can control the direction of the starts with DI, and if you time this correctly you can almost guarantee that you kill at least half of the board.

15 Negative Zone (Luigi)

Very good, always kills, giving way too much damage and vulnerability to everyone in a green circle. A BIG green circle. with so many "symptoms!" As in sleeping, tripping, unwanted taunting, and all with definite poison ivy and greater attack power! This move should be on the top of the list!

This deserves to be at least #2 next to Sonic's. Anyone who knows how to use Luigi will tell you that this brings instant KOs when complemented with his up-special attack. Quick and overpowered.

Okay, you might think I'm crazy, but if you use his up-b move on your foes in Luigi's void, you can actually have a shot on winning the battle.

I'm glad this is on the best list. Because I can't stand people saying that this final smash sucks so horribly!

16 Aura Storm (Lucario)

The Aura Storm is like the Pokemon version of the famous kamehameha why isn't it in at least 4th place. This is vicious in my opinion any one agree

Number 27? This deserves to at least be in top 5! Aura powers up. Whoever put him down here must use him with no damage. Revenge served cold

Wouldve been OP if Lucario was given more time for this final smash. Its just too easy to dodge in my opinion.

Like Sonic says Its too slow. It moves slow to hit someone.

17 Wario-Man (Wario)

Wario gets significantly powered up and can fly with his aerials. The best part is that if opponents try to do air dodges, Wario can chase after them with a barrage of Uairs. His Dair sends him flying downward, but can spike foes into their doom if they are sent off stage. Depending on the character, his Wario Waft can become a potential OHKO. He is also affected by Super Mushrooms with which his power level climbs even higher. This Final Smash becomes more effective in Team Battle where your teammate can keep the opposing team of guard.

The bike just went from annoying to I'm GONNA SKIN YOU and I love it. He is overpowered and his farts are the ones I look up to.

What?! This is the BEST final smash! I mean, you are totally invincible and you have the time to kill everyone at least once!

Wario man farts like he is super man and combos with falcon punches.

18 Iceberg (Ice Climbers)
19 Galaxia Darkness (Meta Knight)

When your opponent has tons of damage, guess what? You can kill them with your final smash.

Good for destroying enemies on both sides of you, if you can aim it correctly.

Meta Knight has a big, cartoonishly bulbous nose like King Kandy's.

Meta knights normal attacks are better than his final smash

20 Volt Tackle (Pikachu)

I also heard rumors if your lucky and you blast while right on top of an enemy then it will trigger a really cool blast and should instantly launch them off screen. It's a really rare effect but it happened to me once.

Yeah right, Sonic's is supposed to be weaker but easier to control and lasts longer!

Easier to control than Sonic and can do a powerful blast by pressing A/2. Pikapi! That's pikachu - ese for " I Rock! "

Pikachu is cute, but he can do a lot of damage.

21 Light Arrow (Zelda)

Go right to the edge of the screen and then use this - you have a greater chance of hitting somebody.

So Easy to get the Smash Ball for one laugh out loud. Damage your opponet a little (20-40%) and then use this...99.9% Chance of a K.O.

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten any votes. If you lay it right you can kill everyone.

I would love to just play around with this FS!

22 Rocketbarrel Barrage (Diddy Kong)

This has to be the best. It's very similar to sonics final smash and to make it better you can shoot banana bombs which explode and enemies you hit in the air also get damaged. I use Diddy kongs and everyone begs for me to stop when I get the smash ball

23 Mario Finale (Mario)

Other final smashes are too over- powered and rated. Mario's final smash is just so original. It looks like kamehameHAA.

For the love of Pete this should be number one

So original and epic

Je m' appelle antoine gouget. J adore une balle smash et final Mario

24 Cook Kirby (Kirby)

Hilarious, entertaining, powerful,... it's just like kirby himself!

Super easy to dodge but still my favorite final smash.

Descent but ultimately ultra sword is better

Kirbys final smash is really really stupid

25 Konga Beat (Donkey Kong)

No way, one of the epic ones! At least it's better than falling asleep and getting peaches!

It's one of the best, but the only issue is that all the beats are quarter notes.

The worst final smash in history.
