Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros. Characters

The Top Ten
1 Pichu Pichu Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves. After its ...read more.

This page is just a troll. It's all fake. Many of the characters on here are top tier in some of the games. The fact we are saying meta knight is the 6th worst character in the series?! He was undoubtedly the best in brawl and high tier in smash 4. Don't listen to this page.

Every character has to have some strengths and some weaknesses. However, this particular character lacks strengths, but excels in weaknesses. He is a newborn, inferior clone of Pikachu. Dropped out of Melee, even worse, his electric attacks HURT himself!

I am here to resent the statement that Pichu is bad, in melee he isn't actually the lowest tier character, rather he is above Bowser and Kirby. He has good Nair combos, if you have ever heard of the competitive smash player Mew2King he uses Pichu in a lot of tournaments

Pichu is the definition of the worst Smash character. And I think it's miles worse than any other character on this list, especially Peach. It hurts itself and it would still be the worst if it didn't.

2 Jigglypuff Jigglypuff Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I'm voting for this pink thing because I find it incredibly overrated. It's just a dumb Pokémon that can't accept that its singing puts people to sleep, and then childishly scribbles on their faces when they're asleep. Come on. That wasn't even funny the first time. And in Smash... well... it's neither particularly relevant nor particularly popular, but Smash fans keep regurgitating the lame "but it was in Smash 64, so it MUST be in every future Smash game! 111! " appeal to tradition. I'm tired of it taking up a roster slot that could have gone to a more deserving character.

I'm sorry but I actually like Jigglypuff (don't hate). Yes, she is light and floaty, making her useless against people like Fox, but her attacks are surprisingly strong. Her back aerial can combo, up air and up tilt can juggle, and her down b, if timed right, can ko very early. People may think she is bad, but they don't know her true pontential.

I Love playing as jigglypuff. She's the worst character in sm4sh and one of the worst in brawl, but in melee her rest combos make her completely overpowered. While she isn't all that good in smash 4, any seasoned smash player who actully knows how to play knows how fun and unique the puff really is. Also her air speed is OP

Shouldn't even be in the game. The attacks are terrible, the character is a bad version of Kirby, and if you block too long you die. So that's worse than pikachu, who apparently hurts himself. (Is that only in melee? I've never noticed it in brawl. )

3 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 ...read more.

I can admit that she is rather unorthodox as a fighter, but character and personality aside, she was always one of the best in the game at a competitive level. Though I agree, I share great animosity towards the toadstool princess as well. I just wished that she could have a more respectable personality in her own games instead of almost always being the damsel in stress.

Princess Peach is beyond 100% awful. Her floating ability has always been useless & Princess Daisy would wear a ponytail much more times than Princess Peach. So would Rosalina & Knuckles the Echidna. And even Princess Zelda. And any of the Mario Bros. I am not kidding.

I think you guys are just be harsh because of how she gets "Kidnapped" Guys, calm down. She's possibly one of my favorite characters to use in smash. Although her attacks are a bit girlish. They're so helpful. Her umbrella attack and yes, even her, "Butt attack" are great.

I don't like Peach but I didn't vote for her, because in smash, expecially in melee she was an awesome character but the people hate her in smash expecially because she get kidnaped in a lot of game in the Super Mario series... But smash ISN'T the Super Mario series and in smash she NEVER get kidnapped and she have a cool moveset.

4 R.O.B

R.O.B. was a very horrible idea to begin with. His attacks are weak, especially his smash attacks. He also has easily the cheapest recovery in the entire game. Plus the Gyros aren't very good projectiles.

Whoever put this on the list really doesn't know anything about this game.

Believe or not he actually is good, but I just don't like facing him or being him. Also MLG!

Not even a video game character. Does this mean Goku can be in Smash?!

5 Dark Pit Dark Pit

(This is coming from someone who know competitive play)

Dark Pit and Pit are overrated characters. For one, their recovery. It may seem good at first, but it's pretty easy to gimp. If he uses Side-B, use a projectile. They'll be helpless afterwards, and fall. Up-B is very predictable, so spike them or drop a projectile like Villager's bowling ball. Second is their reflector. This is argueably the worst reflector (designed to reflect, so no Ness F-Smash). It's slow, has a weakness from above, and can break. Their is more, but I won't touch on it. I don't think he's garbage like Zelda or Palutena, but low tier at best.

The most pathetic excuse of a character in Smash history. Not because he sucks (on the contrary pit and pit 2 are both very good characters) but because he's so similar to pit 1. No clone in Smash history has so few differences, and their play-styles are 100% identical. Here are their differences:
Ftilt- kills later
Side B- more super armor and greater damage and knockback
Neutral B- slower and less maneuverable but stronger
Final Smash- not Zelda's
That's it. Anything else you may have thought is nothing more than a rumor. He is in every other way exactly the same. Weight, speed, power, recovery, throws, frame data... everything. What with the power of DLC, a clone like this is absolutely inexcusable, which is why Dark Pit is the absolute worst character in smash.

A whole bunch of people in here have no clue what they are talking about. No, Dark Pit is not a waste of space. No other characters could have been made instead of DP, echos take little effort compared to other characters and therefore do not rob a spot. As well, DP is not a copy of Pit. They play differently due to arrows. Pit focuses on reliable damage and offstage snipes, while Dark Pit can zone and punish approaches better. Please do some research.

It's so pointless to make Dark Pit. He should just be a skin of Pit!
He's just as bad as Pit, and does the EXACT SAME THING as Pit. The only difference? A Black and Purple arrow, and black hair... Did I mention he's mostly black too? Like I said, pointless...

6 Olimar Olimar Olimar is a fictional character from Nintendo's Pikmin video game series created by Shigeru Miyamoto.

I'm just sayinfg this now, Olimar has one of the worst recoveries in every game. If you get a jumping fighter final smash is nothing. The only thing he does is throw veggies at people.
Note to Sakurai: Please oh please take him off the roster for the next smash game and don't bring him back.

Pikmin sucks! Olimar is a big nosed spaceman who enslaves tiny vegetable creatures.

Olimar sucks in Brawl. They gave him a huge upgrade for Wii U.

Olimar's attack move are just... Illegal

7 Ganondorf 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.

Love him in melee. He is a joy to use and to absolutely wreck your opponents with. When you land that offstage warlock punch it just feels SO good. In brawl, though, he's just SO SLLOWWW! His moves are as fun as ever, but you just can't use them, as he can't even get there fast enough! Brawl Ganon feels like something is wrong with my controller. Still main him and Falco in melee. Also pocket main Pichu when I really need to prove my supremacy. Pichu's fsmash is still pretty good. Stop hatin'.

Ganondorf=Way better than Captain Falcon. If he can find your weakness, hell, he will toss you around and give no mercy. He wants to make you give up. He thinks smash bros is a joke to him. He dosen't think he's better than everyone, he thoroughly believes it. This man is the boss.

I liked this guy in Melee. He was a GREAT alternative to Falcon. However, in Brawl, he's just SO slow, with his attacks not helping much either. They can change him in the new game, right? No? SAKURAI!

Ganondorf is just like Captain Falcon, but WAY slower. It was a good idea, but executed horribly. Also, he is the worst fighter in game when you look at his stats. He just stinks.

8 Dr Mario

Why did he take place over other characters. He already had his chance and nobody wanted him back. At least Dark Pit and Lucina were characters that were new to smash.

Dr. Mario throws pills, has the tornado, and uses a white cape instead of the red plumber's yellow one. His final smash is just a medicine-y version of Mario's. Lame as heck.

He's a waste of a character slot! Why did they have to bring him back to smash 4?! I'd rather have them bring back young link, wolf, or even pichu!

Take Mario, slow him down, and make his recovery even worse. You've got doctor Mario. Also, nobody even knows who he is! Paper Mario for the win!

9 Lucina 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.

Sakurai tried so hard to make this character seem important enough to be separate from Marth. Lucina is NOT. Even though Marth was significantly altered, he still has early kill options with forward smash with the tipper. However, because Lucina doesn't have a tipper, she is easily inferior to Marth in strength.

I may have left an opinion already but here are my top 6 reasons why lucina is NOT trash. (Inspired by nicobbq)
6: she awesome in smash
5: she is not a clone. Marth is.
4: she never loses
3: she can predict the future
2: her father is chrom
1: she is a future princess

Stop the hate guys! You're actually just being sexist because shes a girl and Marth is a girl. If a girl is playing SSB and they like Marth, they can play as Lucina. If you don't like it, its not Lucina OR Sakurais problem. So deal with it.

Whenever people ask me who my favorite fire emblem character is, I'd say that there really is no contest. I HATE it when she gets star kod. She is so pretty. She is one of my mains. Also, she is very hot. No denying that. look at dem eyes O_O

10 Mii

The Mii is actually really good as a fighter. I played as the brawler/fighter/whatever, and the opponents were EZPZ for me to launch. Just set the right moves, and your good to go.

Being able to fully customize their move would have been nice. But instead, you have to choose between 3 classes, all outclassed by every other character's moveset.

These suck pretty much all the time, but you have to admit that on the 3ds version they are pretty good, and I found myself using them.

Basically all of their moves have either high starting or ending lag. And some of their custom moves suck. Like Helicopter Kick it doesn't go vertical. It goes horizontal. Which you think is a good thing but it barely moves horizontally. Also Shurkien of Light it barely does any damage and as high ending lag. BUFF THESE CHARACTERS NINTENDO!

The Contenders
11 Meta Knight 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.

Meta Knight shouldn't be so high on the list, due to the fact that he has a huge difference between damage and recovery capability in Smash 4 compared to Brawl. Now he is more likely a brand new character with his good balance of strength. Now that Smash 4 released, we should forget his past appearance by just a little bit and focus more on his present features and power. That was then, this is now, Amirite?

Clearly this list is based off personal preference rather than tier lists and such. Meta Knight is actually broken as heck. While nerfed in smash 4, he is still high tier.

Who the heck putted Meta Knight on there? Meta Knight is a good character.

I just hate the whole list.

He ruined Brawl! He was so OP, he got banned. Proves how bad a Kirby character can be!

12 Ice Climbers Ice Climbers

I agree they are super cool! you pretty much have 2 lives! I don't know how to use them they are not my characters either, I just think that having double the lives is really cool!

What's better than a duo that are similar? Don't even says Rosalina And Luma 'cause they are very different so shut your faces Rosalina fangirls.

I suck at ice climbers. All my friends do to. Even so, I'm suprized it is on this list. I only have one friend who plays as ice climbers, and he is actually really hard to beat.

Ice Climbers are underrated. They are beast once you get used to them. My brother is an Ice Climbers master! He always wins with them!

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.

I feel like Zelda should be a lot faster, because if she was, that would easily make her top tier. Her attacks when timed right, deal a lot of damage and her ability to teleport gives you an advantage especially in the older games when Zelda and Sheik were one character.

Her attacks are SO slow. In Brawl, Din's Fire was a pretty good projectile attack. However, now that they nerfed it, they have taken Zelda to a newer low.

Literally bottom tier 3 games running now. Then we have Fox who has been high/top tier 4 games running. Absolutely rigged.

Why twice? She is full of powerful attacks. Her new move phantom slash is way better than turning into sheik who is full of weak attacks. Zelda is also hot. She doesn't deserve to be on this list. She is an amazing character. I have won many tournaments and matches with Zelda! Zelda! Zelda! Zelda! Go Zelda! Way better than Samus, Girl Robin, Rosalina, Peach and Lucina COMBINED! She is the best female(and character) ever.

14 Wii Fit Trainer

It makes me laugh when these people say this character sucks because they get beat up by it. Wii Fit Trainer is amazingly balanced and in my opinion a high tier character. Get good, don't say a character sucks just cause you do and you can't beat it.

Just why?! Why the hell is Wii Fit Trainer in this game the sun salutation is cheap and I easily get spammed by it she is also terrible in the game

Why is she so low. All here attacks deal less damage than pikmin. Don't try and main her.

What!? Why?! This is just stupid. Who even likes Wii fit anyway?

15 King Dedede 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.

Really? This guy is one of my best mains in the game. He may have been a little more nerfed in SSB4 and not as good as SSBB, but I think I prefer his improved pros better in SSB4. He is one of the best heavyweight characters and actually has a good recovery if you use it wisely. Plus, it's easier to use that Jet Hammer now.

Wow. He is just so slow and weak. He SUCKS. He's almost unplayable. I can't believe they got everything wrong with this character. I mean, just wow.

Everything about this character is annoying. One of my least favorites to fight. Good thing he's not that strong, or I'd lose my mind.

Has the second best recovery in the game. I know, Dedede is slow, but his attacks are very powerful. I use Dedede in Classic mode a lot

16 Rosalina Rosalina Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Franchise created by Nintendo. She first appeared in the 2007 Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy for the Nintendo Wii and later returned for the game's sequel in 2010. Since then, she has been featured in many main-series Mario Games ...read more.

Ummm... you people are so rude. Saying Rosalina deserves to die and wanting her off the Mario franchise. You don't like her fine. But that's going too far. I love her. She's so unique and strong. I love her anti gravity move and her black hole move. Plus her final smash beautiful. She doesn't need the luma but she brought him anyway. It's not cheating. How about Olimar with the pikmin? That isn't cheating and Rosalina is? No. Do you why she brought him? Because luma wanted to fight and Rosalina couldn't break his little heart. Luma never got to have this chance and it's a rare opportunity for it. Plus she fights together with it unlike Bowser and Bowser Jr. Bowser is okay with beating up his own son! That's child abuse and Rosalina would never do that.And Rosalina gives luma credit. Peach doesn't give Toad any or Olimar doesn't give any to Pikmin. And lets not forget her voice. It's the best voice. And she's the most attractive. And the mist unique. I love how everything is based on ...more

Yeah, Rosalina is just an intergalactic wench who acts like she's superior compared to Peach and Zelda, but nah, she'll never be better than either of them because all she does is attack with her weak Lumas. She always heavily relies and depend on them to protect her. Ug, I hate her so much. Too late now, she's already an official character in the game. Why Nintendo why? This is an atrocity. Plus her puny wand isn't going to help her now is it?

I hate this character mostly because her Luma does most of the fighting for her and cheaply attacks opponents when they grab her. That's called cheating right there! I always get happy when I smash that annoying star out of existence and put the final move on Rosalina.

The most cowardly fighter. People say she's a tomboy, but her techniques are graceful and weak. Peach fights in a more tomboyish way than her! And what's with using the lumas. Aren't they supposed to be her children?!
Her fans aren't intelligent enough to know how to play SSB.

17 Bayonetta 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.

I believe you, TrueBlueHeroes. As was pointed out by someone else on two other lists: Being "very popular in Europe" (the number three market behind the US and Japan) and "within the top five" (if she'd actually been number one they would have just said so) were the reasons given for her inclusion. Also, why the heck would anyone in "Smash Bros." target audience, let alone enough to make her number 1 over ANY and ALL other possible candidates, want her?

Bayonetta herself isn't bad. It's her inclusion that makes her the worst. The stuff Bayonetta does is stuff you CAN'T get away with in E10-rated games! AT ALL! I'm actually surprised Nintendo hasn't been sued for violating ESRB rules yet!

If Nintendo "saved" her original series like her fanboys claim, then I get the feeling they were going to put her in anyway (not that they should have) and the Smash Ballot was just a PR stunt to hide the fact that they were using the otherwise E10 rated and popular with families and kids "Smash Bros." to promote a series they only "saved" to "prove" Nintendo isn't just a kid's company.

That several characters I know HAD to have been wanted more than her are now set to appear in Ultimate is only making the alleged "ballot" look more and more like a CYA for Nintendo to put her in.

18 Ness Ness

Ness is really good if you know how to use him. You need to practice. And also Ness has some of the most powerful moves in the game. PK Flash and PK Thunder when you hit Ness. Sure he has some flaws but he shouldn't be 19. Only big flaw I can think of is that PK Flash and PK Thunder are hard to land. Ness has quite a good final smash in both brawl and 3ds/WiiU (the 3ds/WiiU is better that the old one though). So I do disagree with this list.

Ness is actually pretty good, but the problem with him is that his up special doesn't last a very long time and gets you stressed with its speed, making it so that when you want to go up, you move to the side. That's really one of the only bad things I can think of about him.

I. CAN'T. STAND. NESS. His attacks are relatively weak, his recovery is almost as bad, and he has low defense. Earthbound may have been a great game, but Ness is one of my least favorite fighters.

Ness may be weak in the first three, but he is actually very good in smash 4. Plus, EarthBound is amazing. I'm surprised he is even on the first page (though, 1% of votes is still quite low).

19 Kirby 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.

Honestly, Kirby sucks. Mostly because I think the only reason he survived the light rays in Ultimate is because Nintendo made that so people would start with the WEAKEST CHARACTER and make it so the player would get stronger characters in the process. Take that, Kirby mains! Besides, the Kirby series is one that you like the villain, King Dedede, better than the hero.

Kirby is by far the most overrated character in Smash. His slow speed, weak attacks and lousy recovery make him a lot worse than other characters.

His attacks are really easy to dodge and if you get hit it only does 3 damage he is not the worst character in smash but he is pretty close. 4th worst smash character

Kirby is one of the best characters maybe a few attacks suck but he is really good. The person on the bottom have you battled a real Kirby main becuase if you have you will get beaten really hard UNCULTURED SWINE

20 Sheik Sheik

She's what I call a hard to use character. Only when you use her a lot do you know that she is strong and has good combos.
She's my main.

Sheik is actually really good. Tricky at first but when you learn to use her then it can do great.

She sucks like crazy

Better than shrek

21 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid. It is a starter Pokémon and evolves into Wartortle which ...read more.

Gosh, this little freak has changed my whole perspective of turtles. He's weak, somewhat slow, his attacks have the smallest hitboxes, and all his special attacks suck. No offense, but if your gonna add a turtle not from Mario, it has to be Blastoise. No exception.

Makes me feel bad for blastoise seeing that spamming surf and hydro cannon beats everything in Pokemon, but in SMASH BROS he can't hold is own and you need Charzaird to actually DO STUFF and how Nintendo empathizes Charziaid and Pikachu WAY too much. I want Blastiiose damn it!

Actually, squirtle is really good. His side b is unpredictable and does quite some damage. His special is good for stopping other people from getting to you or an item and if you don't like him, you have two other Pokemon to choose from. Ivysaur is the best because his vines and special have quite some range. Only bad thing is that ivysaurs recovery isn't that great. Charizard is decent. His recovery is better than squirtle so and ivysaurs and his side b is OP

Jigglypuff is better than this.

22 Palutena Palutena Palutena is a character from Kid Icarus (1987), Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters (1991), and Kid Icarus: Uprising (2012). She is also a playable character in Super Smash Brothers for 3DS and WiiU (2014), and in Super Smash Brothers: Ultimate (2018). She is the goddess of light and ruler of Angel Land, ...read more.

Remember when Palutena had all of these different special moves in the trailer and they chose the best ones to be default? Me neither. I'm serious. Her default moveset doesn't really help in any way. It's just not very good, considering that most of them are defensive than offensive.

As a default, she's clunky. I main her, but she takes a lot of practice. Excellent smash attacks though. With customs, she's a force to be reckoned with.

It's hard to use her and actually get some damage. Most of her attacks are defensive, and can only be used properly if you play with Palutena a lot.

Although she's my mains she's bad in terms of default moves, lag and vulnerability.

23 Roy Roy

To be honest, Roy is one of the best sword wielders in the game. It's easier to rack up damage with the blade of his sword than Marth's tipper. May not have a great recovery, but it does trap and damage opponents. Also, he benefits a lot from the new rage mechanic and is easier to use to trap opponents in his Dancing Blade move.

Roy is amazing! People who say Roy is a clone is because they don't realize how different he is from Marth. His Blazer and Double-Edge Blade may be similar, but, he's very different. His Flare Blade can kill in one blow, and, his side-smash is incredible! Why all the hate on him?

Another STUPID Marth clone. Why do people want Wolf and Roy anyway, their stupid clones.

Because we needed more Marth clones/semi-clones, am I right?

24 Mr. Game & Watch Mr. Game & 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.
25 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated ...read more.

He shoulda been replaced with Blaziken when he debuted with Pokemon trainer in Brawl.
