Top 10 Strongest Super Smash Bros. Brawl Characters

The Top Ten
1 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... read more

Damian's Opinion

Meta Knight is NOT overrated! By far, he's an overpowered beast! When I started, I usually played Kirby a lot. Then we started unlocking many characters, and I decided to start playing Bowser a lot.

Then I unlocked Ike, and I thought it couldn't get any better until Meta Knight! Every move of his does 20-25% damage! They launch enemies halfway through the map, even at a launch rate of 1.00x and 2.00x. Forget it, you stand no chance - one shot and it's see you later.

He is so fast and strong. The only not-even-bad thing about him is that he's kind of slow at flying.

2 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.

Even though Ike's Aether is a lackluster horizontal move, he has Quick Draw, the best horizontal recovery in the game! His attacks are more powerful than any character's!

Meta Knight doesn't have the KO power to be first. He's below everyone I've talked about. One false move against Ike can send you to the shadow realm! Bowser, DK, and Ganon just don't have the skill to take down the powerhouse known as Ike!

I mean, this man killed a fudging GODDESS with a two-handed sword blessed by THAT SAME GODDESS!

3 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... read more

Bowser is the most powerful character I've ever played! I've been using him for 6 years, and he's OP. His side smash can deal more damage, making it the most powerful side smash in the game. His final smash is fun to use.

He is hard to KO due to his super armor, weight, and size. He can KO characters at 60% or above. I used him a lot for intense difficulty, like boss battles. He has 5,530 KOs, and I'm gonna keep going until he reaches over 9000! He should be first.

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

4 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's Ultra Sword is killer. It kills basically anyone that comes into its reach. He can also inhale people and fall off the stage for a good suicide kill. Plus, he is fast enough that I could easily compare him to Sonic, and his moves are just overall overpowered.

When he has an attack bonus, there is no stopping him, and his final smashes would just slaughter everyone. They made Kirby so powerful in his games that they had to weaken him in Smash Bros so he wasn't too powerful. Hypernova and Robobot armor would be too killer, and I think even Ultra Sword is maybe too powerful.

5 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.

Damian's opinion:

I suck at him, but he's terrific. He should be #4. I button mash, and he does crazy damage.

Donkey Kong can make shockwaves by hitting the ground. He could smash you. He has a punch that gives over 20% damage. He is super strong, no doubt.

It looks like Donkey Kong is on steroids. He can beat every opponent.

6 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.

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.

He has basically a one-hit KO move, and even his A attack can send opponents flying off the screen. Warlock Punch, Side Smash, and The Volcano Kick are insanely powerful. He technically IS the strongest. After all, he is the hardest hitter in the game.

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

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

I think Link is pretty powerful because he has this bow that can kill your target from a distance. Also, his sword is quite powerful. Killing Jigglypuff is pretty simple. I agree Link should be at least sixth on the power list.

What's great about Link is that he has a balance between his long-range and close-range attacks. This gives you the chance to fire your arrows from a distance to increase the hit ratio and then come in for the final blow with the Master Sword.

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

8 Zelda

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 does 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.

9 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 definitely the best player in SSBB. He should be first out of everyone. He's super strong, fast, and agile. He is great for making combos, and his recovery is really good if you hit someone with it.

His Falcon Punch is insanely powerful, and his final smash is a one-hit KO 99% of the time. So I say that Captain Falcon is definitely the best.

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 for sure.

10 Pikachu Pikachu (Japanese: ピカチュウ) 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. A mascot of the Pokemon franchise, it's... read more

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 the brute strength to back it up.

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 against some of the strongest players.

The Contenders
11 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.

12 Luigi Luigi, originally a palette swap of Mario named Green Mario, is a major 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, taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's unofficial mascot... read more

He is much better than Mario and has some strong moves such as super punch and green missile.

13 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... read more

Peach is a beast.

Her slaps are fast and do great damage.

Her upskirt kick is probably the strongest in the whole game.

She has the most unfair use of the fan. Just try to escape. You can't.

The strongest, and yes, I am being serious!

14 Mario Mario, originally named Jumpman, is the main character of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario game, including games in spin-off series as a playable character, with... read more

His final smash is FIRE god. I do not want to mess with him if he had a smash ball or no weapons at all! Heck, I won as Mario against 8 characters. He should be at least over the tens.

15 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 character if you can learn how to 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. He should be in the top 3. One reason is because he is super fast and hard to stop. Also, he can jump really high.

Sonic is the best character. I got to like him after watching the movie. I just realized how strong he is.

16 Lucas

Lucas has the strongest up smash in the game. (Take that, Ganondorf.) He's incredibly strong with his other attacks too, with good comboing.

Go Lucas! You almost made the top 10!

17 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. Often appearing as a sidekick and helper to Mario, Yoshi is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi's Island and the Super Mario franchises.

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

18 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... read more
19 Mr. Game and Watch Mr. Game & Watch is a 2D generic stick figure-styled silhouette character, created by Nintendo and an amalgamation of the Game & Watch handheld consoles.

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

He is just so underrated. I use him every time and win. He should be number one.

20 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.

He should be number one. There is no way 24 characters are stronger than him. He is easily the most overpowered.

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.

21 Ness

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

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

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

22 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.

What I fancy about Pit is that he is balanced with flying, ranged shots, and melee. I would recommend him, but I don't want to so people don't steal my character.

I really like Pit, and after that, it's Palutena. I used his arrows a lot before I learned how to use him, and now he is the one I always win with...unless my brother is playing.

The point is Pit should be a little higher on this list. If every Kid Icarus fan knows Pit, then you should know how strong and cool he is compared to other characters. PIT IS AWESOME!

23 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,... read more

Ah, Marth. The poster boy of Fire Emblem. He just doesn't have the advantage that Ike has with the Falchion. For Marth to kill, he has to hit with the tip of the sword, which is easier said than done.

Tipping a Mail Breaker at 42% can kill a Mac. Enough said.

Marth is quick, so he can hit and run. His smash is totally KO.

Marth is life!

24 Ice Climbers

I guess the reason Ice Climbers are 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.

25 Snake

Snake has many advantages. He has a variety of moves, whether shooting long distance or his powerful kicks. Snake is hard to master, and to be honest, he needs almost all of his moves to win a game.

However, 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 (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.

Overall, Snake is probably one of the best characters in the game, for sure. I am loyal to Snake forever!
