Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros. Melee 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 more.

He's a fail of a character, because he hurts himself. And why are Peach, Dr. Mario, Ice Climbers, and Jigglypuff here? Have you guys ever seen the official tier list? Jigglypuff, is the 3rd best character, and Peach, Doc, and Ice Climbers are up there. Ice Climbers are hard to get used to but they're amazing. Also, Pikachu is not amazing in every smash game. He's the best character in the original (not my words, the words of all the pros that made the tier list), and he's really good in Brawl. In Melee he's the worst he's ever been, although still pretty decent. He's not bad, but not good. Roy should be up here too. He has all the disadvantages of Marth and non of the advantages.

Pichu may be in the F range on the tier list, but I feel that tier lists don't matter if you practice enough on certain characters. I've only lost to Falco, Fox, and Gannondorf with Pichu, but there's no way I can do tournaments because of how overzealous other contestants get. Plus, items are banned in tourneys and having them even at very low can help Pichu drag along!

The creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai, has literally said multiple times that Pichu was meant to be a joke character. Pichu, though with arguably the best nair in the entire game, is definitely the worst due to its tendency to damage itself, which makes the fact that Pichu is extremely lightweight even worse.

Pichu is pretty bad, but he's not an awful character. His neutral aerial is very good, allowing you to damage without hurting yourself, and he has decent finishers. His main drawback is that he hurts himself, but otherwise, he's only a slightly below average character.

2 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 more.

I would love for daisy to replace peach because her final smash can bloom flowers everywhere and then the players will get stuck and when they are stuck there health will get bad then when it's over she can hit them out unlike peaches stupid smash were it only helps the health and even when you get it when the characters wake up they just take peaches food from her final smash so I would love daisy to be in there

Whoever said the thing about the final smash and replacing with daisy I have something to say. THIS IS MELEE NOT BRAWL! And my opinion on peach, she was pretty good in melee.

Peach has no skill. She just sends out a toad and turnips! Zelda has fire and teleport meanwhile this is her rival!

Peach is a princess in a pink dress to be clear this means she is not ready for any type of brawl

3 Ice Climbers Ice Climbers

This at #2 blows my mind. If popo gets a grab, then you're done for, because of the ice climbers' wobbling technique, which allows you to build up damage infinitely without any chance of your opponent escaping. This alone turns them into a good, but not fantastic, character.

List creator, just no. have you even played super smash bros melee?

You are completely wrong even with pichu being number 1# please refrain from making any smash bros lists in the future because you have literally no idea what the heck you doing.

This is just so dumb. Ice Climbers shouldn't be up here at all! The reason they are so OP is because chain grabbing. Also why the hell are Dr. Mario, Mewtwo and Ness up here?

Ice climbers are all right but once one partner dies they are impossible to win with

4 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario Dr. Mario is the persona Mario takes in the Dr. Mario series. Under this identity, Mario dons a lab coat, a head mirror, and a stethoscope around his neck. He first appeared in his titular game, Dr. Mario.

I just read this article, on how the director almost kills himself overthinking super smash bros. Characters. And then we get Dr. Mario... Sorry I don't buy it


He's a clone, and he stole Luigi's thunder attack. He's good gameplay wise but bad in execution (explosive pills, maybe? )

Basically the same character as Mario with a better cape and projectile, stronger attacks and a tiny bit slower

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

Among more serious and technical players, Jigglypuff is very widely known to be the 5th best character in the game. That means Jigglypuff is better than 4/5 of the entire game's cast (and has an insanely good matchup against Fox, the #1 character). That's impressive! This is due to Jigglypuff having some of the best aerials in the game that can easily string into each other, a great approach, being easy to learn, and having REST. Rest, a very quick attack with the strength of Ganondorf's Warlock Punch. Hard to hit with, you say? Git good

Come on guys. What were you thinking. Nintendo absolutely ruined Jigglypuff by reducing the area his rest moves hits. Seriously, the kill combo was ruined because they stuffed up his rest.

At least he still has his good aerial fighting skills. But a lot better in N64.

Must I remind you that this is melee not brawl, and for the fact that he is the 5th best character in melee, which means ness peach donkey kong and maybe Mario should be higher on the list? You all might not know his true power

A good character for her fantastic air maneuverability and good aerial attacks (back air for the win)

6 Young Link Young Link

Just because he is a link clone doesn't mean he is bad

He's just link, but smaller. What makes him so great? Nothing.

A smaller faster weaker link

He's a boss why is he on here

7 Mewtwo 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.

Mewtwo is kinda difficult to use. His speed is fairly average and has really good jumping.

But the problem is that his moves doesn't give a lot of damage.
Cause of that, I wasn't able to play Crazy Hand on Classic Mode even though I didn't use a continue and I was playing on Normal.

Mewtwo is the best character of all time so whoever said he sucks they suck

He might be a good Christian role model, but he still sucks in Melee!

He's very floaty, and hard to control. And to me, he's hard to unlock.

8 Ness Ness

I love Ness as a character, it's just he has the worst aerial recovery in the game. Doesn't help that his home stages don't favor his recovery method either. It's either "git good" at aiming PK Thunder, or air dodge and wish for the best.

Ness is a young boy who's first appearence was in EarthBound, AKA Mother 2. He lives next door to a mischievous boy named Porky Minch, whom he later saved a boy named Lucas from in another Mother game.
I like Ness why is on this list?

What's the point about ness? His OP attack is PK plasma thingy. His PK fire traps players. His charge attack is a home run bat and it has great knock back. His throwing attack has strong knock back. But his PK thumber is for advanced players. He is not that bad

Ness is a 6 year old boy. he uses Pk thunder to hurt himself to get back on the field. Just pathetic. PATHETIC. HE has the worst franchise and games, go die!

9 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.

At high-level play, kirby is an awful character. He has a horrible approach, and his projectile and grabs are both bad. His one useful tequnique is his fence of pain, a less effective version of jigglypuff's wall of pain, which is pretty useful for preventing an enemy's recovery.

Peach and Zelda shouldn't be up there they shouldn't be on the list! Kirby is one of the worst melee characters not the worst but close!

I love Kirby as a character, but lets face it, he's horrible in this game. My analysis on Kirby is that he is great SSB4, good in SSBB and SSB4, and useless in melee. This is just his lowpoint, and he gets better in future smash games.

Kirby was only good in n64. By good I mean completely overpowered. Now they have nerfed him too much and he is useless now.

10 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.

He is the most dumbest character ever invented along with duck hunt dog, he is so pointless he is just a shadow with boring attacks

Mr game and watch is a good character. You just have to know how to use him.

Mr. game & watch is the worst character in the game right next to olimar and toon link

Mice to meet ya

The Contenders
11 Yoshi 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.

What is wrong with you people? Yoshi is great. I don't care what the tier list thinks.

Yoshi is the 5th worst character next to toon link olimar and Mr. game & watch

He gets more sudden deaths then about anyone.

12 Donkey Kong 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.

Donkey kong is just like Bowser he's all about brutal force

What no he super punch is great he's not bad

Ya Dk does suck

13 Pikachu 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.

Pikachu is the 8th best character ever from 10- 1:falco fox pikachu pit lucario ness lucas kirby greninja and mew two


I only vote because you can't spell pikachu its pikachu you tool

Pikachu is great when learn how to use him. he will kick butt

14 Falco

Falco is the 10th best character

What Falcons number 1

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

Not necessarily a bad character, but just boring to play as.

Link shouldn't be here. He's awesome. He's my main character.

Links not that good in this game

I hate link with all my guts

16 Master Hand

Master hand is playable as a glitch.

Master hand is alright

He's hot & awesome!

Dude Master Hand is not hot but he is a awesome hand. Master Hand is genderless

17 Bowser 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 more.

I wanted him to have a British accent, not a hyper-masculine deep voice.

Bowser is just like donkey kong all about brutal force

You wanted Bowser to have a British accent? SINCE WHEN DID Bowser EVER HAVE A BRITISH ACCENT?

Scratches knock us hsrd

18 Roy

Roy shoots bullets so whoever put this roy here they are STUPID

19 Zelda/Sheik

I like sheiks look and moves better

Sheik is a cocksucker

Worst. Up B. EVER. - lite64

20 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.

Zelda's alright I don't hate her but not one of my main characters

Zelda is so girly plus I don‘t even think she has any powers。

21 Fox

Worst character in the entire series, got smash fans to hate every other game in the series that isn't melee, the only playable character in melee is Fox according to many people, fox is completely unbalanced and deserve to be ranked number one as the worst smash Bros character

Melee Fox is worse then Brawl Ganon, 64 Luigi, 4 Jigglypuff, and Melee Kirby combined


Something about him just doesn't seem interesting

22 Wario Wario Wario is a character in Nintendo's Mario series who was originally designed as an antagonist to Mario. His motives are driven by greed and he will take the side of whoever will give him the most pay. Although he may seem like just a mean man with no heart, he does have a very tragic past.

Can't do anything but Peach isn't even worse! If teen boys play the game why are Wario and Peach on? They are children's characters!

Wario is the worst character by far. All he does is stand still, like a trophy.

He's a fat hippy who likes money. AKA NO

This is melee not brawl.

23 Marth 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, more.

Bland, cheap, and nowhere as likeable as Link.

Whoever Says Marth sucks can die in a fire.

Marth is extremely overrated

24 Diddy

I don't like him

Yep, he was bossy.

& he is fat & fights perverted.

25 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

He's not in Melee... Brawl and 4 only.

Don't go hating on sonic I PWNED everyone with him
