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. I 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 speed. Their attacks are decent, but most of their combos and defense are excellent.

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 was 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.

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.

His down smash is the best move in the game, and his recovery is overpowered.

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 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. Sakurai made both games!

But, Kirby is the best dude out of all the 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's. Unlike him, Kirby still has infinite jumps.

Kirby is definitely the best character!

5 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.

Daisy debuted in Super Mario Land in 1989, after few other appearances she disappeared for nine years until she was brought back in Mario Tennis (2000).

Daisy... read more

Although you can hear Waluigi fans wah-ing in the corner, the reveal of Daisy was somewhat hype. A lot of people wanted 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.

6 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. 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!

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

This dude is strong. Don't believe me? Fight one of the guys who use him.

My main. Great roster addition!

8 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.

He's Snake. It's that simple. I mean, come on. He's Snake. That's my comment.

9 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

He's simply the best for multiple reasons. He has one of the best recoveries in the game, insane combos, a really good projectile, and he is extremely speedy.

He sees major representation in tournaments with players like Esam. He outshines many other top tiers with technical abilities like amazing hitboxes, and the best back air in the game. Need I say more? Pikachu is busted.

10 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, and his combos are amazing.

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

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

My joint favorite Pokémon and favorite Pokémon in Smash! (Nintendo, please add Solgaleo) Also, one of my favorite mains.

Let's face it, Smash Bros. got people to finally stop talking about Decidueye.

12 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 only 33.4% damage.

13 Chrom

Chrom's up special is one of the best if it's used offensively. If you are at high damage, just dash attack or forward smash the opponent off the stage without getting a KO. Then, use the 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!

14 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 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 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!

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 is beast mode in Smash Ultimate!

Sonic speed!

My main. I have three more: Wii Fit Trainer, Bayonetta, and Peach. Sonic for life! I'm a Sonic nerd, lol.

Tails or Shadow for Smash. Wait, no! Big the Cat.

16 Piranha Plant The Piranha Plant, known as the Pakkun Flower in Japan, is a plant species from the Mario franchise which usually appears as a leafy green stalk topped with a white-spotted red or green globe, with a maw lined with sharp teeth reminiscent of piranhas.
17 Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

I think Link should be in 1st place because have you seen his 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.

18 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. His moves in Brawl were very wonky, and he was extremely slow. He was my least favorite player in Brawl, but he's definitely buffed now.

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. 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!

19 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a psychic-type Legendary Pokémon from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, it made its first appearance in the games Pokémon Red and Blue. It was created by Dr. Fuji using gene splicing in an attempt to clone Mew. In the Pokémon games, it's infamously... read more
20 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.

21 Mii Swordsman

Deserves to be higher than Brawler and Gunner. I like him.

22 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 in their own games.

The ultimate duo is finally back!

Finally, the Climbers are back!

23 Simon Belmont
24 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. Instead, the damage she causes is equal all the way down her sword.

She is a pretty fast fighter, 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.

25 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.

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