Top Ten Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighter game starring an all star cast of different Nintendo characters which came out on December 7th, 2018. I hope you enjoy the list!
The Top Ten
1 Inkling

I've grown to love this character. Used to struggle using her/him (I prefer the default orange female), but now she's my secondary, just slightly behind Little Mac.
Also, can I get a woomy in the chat?

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.

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

Amazing character with great attacks, which is very cool. My main for sure.

2 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 ...read more.

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

He is the best Metroid Villain and the second best in super smash bros. Ultimate

I casually kill someone in 1-3 hits with Ridley. With him, I'm the Ninja of SSBU.

Not so good competitively...

3 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.

"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.

He's pretty good

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

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 is one of the worst charactersin the game. Horrible speed, bad specials except for maybe up b, rest can be punished. Has npt a ton of kill moves, easy to edgequard, garbage character. Why are there so many votes?

Kirby is boss. He should lead a protest with signs like: "They did a potted plant before Waluigi! " And "Bandanna Dee for smash! " Really, guys, we need more Kirby characters for smash. Sakuri made both games! But, Kirby is the best dude out of all dah dudes.

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.

Kirby is definitely the best character!

5 Snake

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.

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

Ho ha! The banana factory!

6 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.

Easily the best

7 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. ...read more.

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.

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

I don't like that she is an echo other than that I am ready to use her!

8 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.

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!

A very popular character

Meta knight it my main

9 Chrom

Chrom's up special is one of the best up specials if it's used offensively. If you are at high damage just dash attack/forward smash the opponent off of the stage without getting a KO, then up special to spike both you and the opponent. It's very useful if you have the stock lead. He's pretty much a faster Ike, which is always good!

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

Get him above that stupid weed!

10 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.

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

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

The redesign of the character had everybody buzzing.

The Contenders
11 Piranha Plant

Love his final smash

Plant gang rise up

12 Cloud Cloud Strife, more commonly known as simply "Cloud", is a fictional video game character, the main protagonist of Square's video game Final Fantasy VII, which is a role playing game released in 1997. He also is the main protagonist of the high-definition version, as well as many of its sequels and spinoffs. ...read more.

Cloud is a pretty basic fighter, and he's is good to start out with if you are new to Smash. His recovery is a bit mediocre, but he makes up for it with good speed and attacks. He also has limit, which is pretty much a meter that charges over time. Once it's full, you have faster move speed and one strong special attack to use before it charges up again. You only have fifteen seconds to use this special attack, so be quick!

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

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.

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!

14 Sephiroth Sephiroth is a fictional character and main antagonist in the role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII developed by Square.

My main. Great roster addition!

My main! Sephiroth is the best!

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.

My main, I have three more. Wii fit trainer, Bayonetta, and peach. Sonic for life! Ima sonic nerd lol.
Tails or shadow for smash. Wait,
No!
Big. The. Cat.

Sonic players online suck and exploit his speed to stay away from the action.

Sonic is beast mode in smash ultimate!

Sonic Speed!

Sonic is awesome

16 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.

They buffed Bowser A LOT. In previous games his moves were very slow but they fixed all that and gave him even more strength now. His recovery is also a lot better now and his combos are amazing.

Great fighter with a moveset that's fun to learn; deserves to be much higher than 41.

17 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

Yes he's my Main

18 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.

19 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.

People say that Lucina is everything you want in a fighter. She is the echo of Marth, but she, unlike Marth, doesn't have a tipper, and instead the damage she causes is equal all the way down her sword. She is a pretty fast fight, and she has great attacks. Also, she has a great counter.

Hands down the best person in the game my main used to be link but then lucina happened

20 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.
21 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.

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

I just love how they made her dress more poofy.

22 Joker

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

23 Zero Suit Samus
24 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

25 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.

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

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

I love her (come on, look at that damn body, like JEZUS) but they made her way too overpowered in this game.

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