Top Ten Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters

This list has come out before the game so the options I've picked are going to drastically change when it actually comes out and tier lists start rolling in. So for this I'll be ranking based on how much they've improved from their previous games, and If they're new I'll say how much impact they've made.Super Smash Bros. Ulimate is a fighter game starring an all star cast of different Nintendo characters which comes out December 7th 2018. I hope you enjoy the list!

The Top Ten


Inkling is cool and has amazing recovery and spped, their attacks are decent but most of their combos and defence are excellent.

When inkling moves she turns into an octopus which is so amazing

I really like inkling this should be first they look so young (i'm basically young (

Inkling has some pretty great attacks with a lot of combo potential, as well as amazing speed and agility. That, and the fact that I am a huge Splatoon fan, are the reasons why I'm an Inkling main.

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.

As soon as you saw Ridley killing off Mega Man, you almost cried with joy...Ridley - who they previously claimed too big for in Smash, right there. It really is a beautiful thing to see.

DYK Mario and mega man not dead

After seeing the trailer I have six words:

I can't believe he wasn't in Smash before

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.

He literally says one thing because he's so boss he only needs to say one thing and its rawr

"Now that I have the power
This is my finest hour
Nothing on this Earth can stop me now! "

King K. Rool's finest hour, indeed.

His down smash is the best move in the game and his recovery is op


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 is usually put in the lower tiers but in Ultimate his moves are pretty strong, his recovery is almost as good as Meta Knight, unlike him Kirby still has infinite jumps.

So cute, but he is a savage when it comes to ultimate

Kirby is definitely the best character!

He is cute and final smash is awesome

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 definitely the best of this list but according to the best ZeRo super smash player Mewtwo is the top

Easily the best


Daisy Princess Daisy is a fictional character in the Mario series of video games, in which she is the princess of the fictional region of Sarasaland. more.

Literally, I want a switch now all because of her. Call me stupid. It's okay lol

Ok, Ultimate has Daisy but not Waluigi? What kinda world is this?

Listen, I hate Daisy, but Waluigi isn't more important than Daisy. - Eclipsmon

You may as well label her as Peach, either way she's considered top tier.

Although you can hear Walugi fans...'wah'-ing in the corner, the reveal of Daisy was somewhat hype. A lot of people want her in Smash and when she was revealed as the new echo fighter I was pleasantly surprised.


Snake is good because he can fly on a drone without his pants falling off.

"a weapon to surpass metal gear" his projectiles overwhelm the opponent with free damage, and nikita kills anywhere on the stage

Everybody loves Snake, everybody. When he appeared, we knew stuff was gonna get real. Then came the EVERYONE IS HERE card and everybody screamed in joy.

I thought it would never happen due to the drama between Kojima and Konami (cough Metal Gear Survive cough) but it somehow did it.

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.

I like Meta Knight but he got nerfed A LOT. His moveset is more limited and you can't fly infinitely now, he can't glide either but apart from that and being difficult to learn, he's still pretty good. His attacks are still amazing and he's still one of the fastest attackers in the game. He still has the best recovery in the game. He's more fun to use now.

Meta Knight is my main and he is amazing. Ridley just turned out to be a big pushover. He was hyped, and turned out to be not so good. Meta Knight has always been great. FIGHT ME!

Meta knight it my main

He is my favorite


Let's get him above that overrated character that actually not "everybody loves" despite a fanboy's claim.

Get him above that stupid weed!

I have 5 words: HE GOT HIS CHANCE, INDEED.

Piranha Plant

My unpopular opinion: this character suck he shouldn't be in smash

Best. Character. Ever.

Plant gang rise up

I love this character's pitooie. (sorry for the terrible spelling). It covers almost all options.

The Contenders

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

Link has great attacks and good recovery but his final smash is worse than pits. Pit and link is smash 4 had great final smashes. Pits final smash is good if u have good aim and same with link but he had a better chance destroying someone with his final smash in brawl and 4 than in ultimate. That’s why I stick to toon link.

The redesign of the character had everybody buzzing.

Yeah but basically every braindead Link from Smash 4 switched to Young Link. The new rune bombs are for big-brain players only.

I think Link should be in 1st place because have you seen Heroes spin attack! Anyway, third is close enough.


So good upgrade version of little mac

Very good combat and recovery

Ice Climbers

Ice Climbers are extremely popular with the community and when they were revealed as the first returning characters we were all pleased. This duo is more iconic in Smash than their own games.

The ultimate trio is finally back!

Finally the climbers are back!

Zero Suit Samus
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.

I just love how they made her dress more poofy.

She is S tier in Ultimate! Take that, peach haters!

Terry Bogard Terry Bogard is a video game character created by SNK who is the protagonist of the Fatal Fury series.

Voted just to show I actually do know he is and care more about him than a MII OUTFIT for a character I only "know" from worn out memes.

You can use input commands. That is great detail

Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

One of the best Ultimate adds EVVA!

Mewtwo for #1 - lavaboi

One of the absolute best! Better than Peach! (She’s the worst.)


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.

This is the thing that broke smash four online. She my third main though.

Most op character for me. Great combos. I love her guns so clean. Her ultimate is hard to do but with practice she can be the goat

Why did you people include a porn star in smash?

Ok, I get why you added Bayonetta, but do ya really have to have blood when you attack her?

Is not blood, it's just some static effects from her and her colour is red so yeah, it does look like blood but it's not.


Joker is super OP, probably just as overpowered as Brawl Meta Knight. He can fly a lot and has an amazing recovery where he can latch. His attacks and spped are some of the best and he is super fun to use. Also, his final smash is so cool and powerful and it's easily the best in the whole series.

Now that he's released, I can confidently say he's a great fighter. Lots of combo potential and a killer final smash.

I'm a Joker MAIN Ay (to the tune of We are Number 1)

I guess you could say we never saw him coming...

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.
Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Let's face it, Smash Bros got people to finally shut up about Decidueye.

Boss Litten guy

WHERES MY GRASSTYPES?! (We don't need another fire type. We already got Charizard)

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

People do not know the power of Falcon I was on stock 5 against my brother and took 33.4% damage

He is the best character ever!


By far my favorite smash bros character in any smash game. Wish they would fix the following problems though;

Essential fixes
1. Make his initial dash speed faster
2. Make his turn around animation faster
3. Remove the hurt box on his hand and arm during up tilt
4. Make raptor boost come out on frame 2 instead of frame 5
5. Make it so characters won’t fall out of jab (at least not as often as they do).
6. Make it so he doesn’t get hit after landing his up special.
Nice to have changes:
7. Give forward smash it’s range back that it had in smash 4
8. Give dash grab it’s range from smash 4 back and make it faster.

Even though he has his problems, he is still fun to play regardless and I will ALWAYS play him more than any other character.

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.

My main Yoshi can beat a level 9 Kirby in a one-sided battle.

Yoshi was in smash 64 so he should not be in the newcomers

Newcomers on here means ones that were just added recently to the list

He's awesome and so powerful!


The only problem is his side special... but only if you use it at the wrong time like a MORON! So, ya Wolf's the BEST! And seriously? Inkling at number one? Really?

Wolf is good at attacks, he is an aggressive fighter so his attacks are faster. He's also pretty agile and has good speed and recovery.

See Ice Climbers and Snake. Wolf is yet again another returning beloved character

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.

Ganon is actually pretty buffed, I like using him here and he is. His moves in Brawl were very wonkey and he was extremely slow, he was my least favourite player in Brawl but he's buffed definitely. His recovery and speed haven't changed much but most of his moves are buffed.

I'm so happy they returned to Ganondorf's classic, Gerudo chief look. And his new sword looks absolutely amazing! I was once a Ganondorf main in Brawl, but I switched over to Pac-Man on the Wii U. Now, I wanna go back!

Best smash character

There is only one word to describe this guy: DORIYAH
