Best Super Smash Bros Melee Characters to Main

The best people to play as in Super Smash Bros. Melee
Might do Brawl and maybe SSB4
Sorry that there aren't many pictures. My WiFi connection is trash right now.

The Top Ten

1 Fox

The most popular character in competitive play. I dare you to find a Melee tournament without a Fox. Also, that shine though. - EspioTheChameleon

2 Falco Lombardi

See Fox but change most popular to second most popular. - EspioTheChameleon

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

Captain Falcon is very easy to pick up and is my second best main (Pichu is first.) He also has some awesome combos such as The Sacred Combo (Knee of Justice to an aerial Falcon Punch! ) - EspioTheChameleon

4 Ganondorf

I have a friend who mains Ganon and I have learned a lot of things, but I'll give you all the most important piece of information. That up tilt! It has a huge hit box and I don't care that it's an explosion, it's still in my opinion way too big! - EspioTheChameleon

5 Ice Climbers Ice Climbers

It sucks that they couldn't get into SSB4, but I understand the technical issues. But these guys were awesome in Melee. They were fun, easy characters with a darn catchy victory theme. - EspioTheChameleon

6 Roy

Our Boi is obviously gonna get a place on here due to his awesome strength, good comboing and his amazing finisher. Flare Blade. Fully charged, it's a OHKO! - EspioTheChameleon

7 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.

The older, supposedly better evolution of Pichu is perfect novices and noobs alike. But in the right hands, Pika can be a deadly assassin. And this was before Snake was in Smash. He was actually considered in a Melee alongside Sonic though. - EspioTheChameleon

8 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario Dr. Mario is the persona Mario takes in the Dr. Mario series. Under this identity, Mario dons a lab coat, a head mirror, and a stethoscope around his neck. He first appeared in his titular game, Dr. Mario.

I find this guy to be harder, but better than Mario. He has stronger but slower attacks, so in many ways he's Nega Luigi! So MatPat must hate him and the fan base must treat him like Satan! - EspioTheChameleon

9 Mr. Game and Watch Mr. Game and Watch

Mr game and watch is easily my favourite smash character, he has a good variety of finishers, but he's also very fast and fun to play. His down air is especially good, as it takes priority over many other attacks, allows you to reach the ground faster, and is a meteor smash. - kempokid

Too low on the tier list. Should be 9th. Please tell me someone gets this joke. But in all seriousness Game and Watch is a very strong character for his size. Just remember, big things come in small packages. - EspioTheChameleon

10 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.

I love playing as DK. I don't main him, but I like to keep him on as a pocket character. Falcon has the Sacred Combo but DK has the Sacred Congo! - EspioTheChameleon

The Contenders

11 Sheik Sheik

Shiek is 4th best in the game in my opinion after fox/falco/marth, she should be here, down b sucks though

12 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.
13 Zelda Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.
14 Samus Samus Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.
