Top 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters

This is a list of 10 of the downright most useless characters and or companions in some of your favorite or just some popular games.
The Top Ten
1 Magikarp - Pokemon Magikarp, known in Japan as Koiking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It resembles an orange fish with whiskers. It was created by Ken Sugimori, Magikarp first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. It is a water type that evolves ...read more.

Sure, there are crazy pokefans who can game the system enough to make Magikarp awesome, but with an equal amount of work you could catch an army of Mewtwos and conquer the world with them. At base, Magikarp is useless its only attack is to flop around on the ground and do nothing.

Magikarp can evolve into Gyarados, so your argument is invalid!

How dare you, his splash can eradicate every Pokemon on Earth.

Magikarp keeps using splash all over again!

2 Slippy - Starfox

Could anyone else really have been at the top of this list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters? Fox's companions aren't always the most useful bunch, but Slippy managed to crown himself king of the losers by constantly getting into trouble, requiring you either save his stupid, amphibious ass, or laugh as he gets shot down.

Oh, Slippy. You manged to get on every gamer's nerves

3 Servbot - Marvel vs Capcom 2

Servbot may be tiny, but he makes up for it by dealing virtually no damage and having special/super moves that take forever to activate, leaving him constantly open to attack.

4 Edward - Final Fantasy IV

The only thing Edward has ever contributed to the world is when Tellah called him a "spoony bard" and he went down in meme history.

5 Pichu - Super Smash Bros. Melee 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 Pika-Clone's own lightning attacks hurt it, and it's such a lightweight that a single well-placed uppercut can knock it out even if its damage is as low as 20% (and we've seen it happen). Welcome to the list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters, Pichu.

Aaaand it shocked itself, great(! )

6 Kimahri - Final Fantasy X

FFX's resident furball is also its most useless character anything he can do, everyone else can do better.

7 Princess Elise - Sonic the Hedgehog

Hey, without Elise, sonic is dead. You put Elise instead of omochoa

This zoophilie has no place in the video game industry.

Because it's still a video game?

8 Villager - Minecraft

He trades you emeralds,only available in extreme hills and trades.

9 Rosalina - Super Mario 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.

Not even close to being useless. People blindly hate her so much that they can't be accurate.

She's better than peach.

Oh here's another joke!

You Rosalina Haters are Dum Dums.

10 Rico - Xenogears

To put it kindly, Rico is crap, and his Gear (giant robot suit), is also crap. Every other character has some value to them, even the weirder ones. Maria may be weak on foot, but her Gear is incredibly powerful. ChuChu might be a strange, pink fuzzball, but it can cast healing spells on the other Gears, which is invaluable given the difficulty of recovering their hit points. Rico, however, has got nothing'.

The Contenders
11 Ashley Graham - Resident Evil 4 Ashley Graham is an American model. She has appeared on the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, and Elle. In addition, she appeared in several Levi's campaigns.

Why is this not higher on the list.

12 Jerry - Undertale
13 Papyrus - Undertale Papyrus is a character from the 2015 game Undertale, made by Toby Fox. He is the Younger brother of Sans the skeleton, royal guard in training, and a sentry in the town of Snowdin. Opposite to his brother, papyrus is active, loud, and full of himself; but in an endearing way. Papyrus means to become ...read more.
14 Peco - Breath of Fire III

His weird onion guy is easily overshadowed by the other, superior BoF III characters, and his inclusion makes you wonder if Capcom thought they were making their own kind of Moogles when coming up with this cute-ish animal/vegetable mascot.

15 The Alchemist - Ultima III: Exodus

That's right, we're going old-school. In a game full of wizards, warriors, and you, the Alchemist is the one character class with terrible stats, non-existent weapon and armor skills, and no magic to speak of. If you're going to play as an Alchemist you're better off just shutting the game down.

16 Pink Gold Peach - Mario Kart 8 Pink Gold Peach is a character who debuts in Mario Kart 8, where she appears as an unlockable playable character.

I agree with this

What is a POWER-UP even doing as a character, anyway?

17 Princess Daisy - Super Mario Bros 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.

Since I do not want to vote Peach - Super Princess Peach, I will put my comment here. How is the main character of a game useless when you play as them?

She's just a dumb filler Peach with a louder voice.

18 Wendy O. Koopa - Super Mario Wendy O. Koopa is a female villain in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She is the only female member of the Koopalings and can usually be found assisting Bowser and Bowser Jr . on their wicked plans with the rest of the Koopalings . She first appeared in Super Mario Bros . 3 in 1988 and since then has been ...read more.
19 Trevor Philips - Grand Theft Auto 5 Trevor Philips is a fictional character in Grand Theft Auto V, a video game in the Grand Theft Auto series made by Rockstar Games.

An irritating character that brings nothing to the game at all. A complete waste of space.

20 Sora - Kingdom Hearts

This guy sucks

21 Alphys - Undertale Alphys is an adorably dorky, lab-coat-wearing, bespectacled, yellow-skinned lizard scientist who resides in her lab in Hotland in the critically acclaimed cult classic RPG known as Undertale, wherein she partakes in the daily act of watching insane amounts of anime and having a vast majority of the ...read more.
22 Wario - Super Mario 64 DS 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.
23 Kaepora Gaebora - The Legend of Zelda

This is the most useless thing in the universe

24 Dry Bones - Mario Kart DS Dry Bones is a common enemy species in the Super Mario series of video games since „Super Mario Bros. 3“ (1988). After his first debut as a playable character in „Mario Superstar Baseball“ (2005), he became a fan-favorite and also got playable in other spin-offs of the Mario series.

Dry bones is supposed to be dead!

25 Doo-Whopper - Miitopia

I love Miitopia, but this enemy is just pointless! We already have Roll Hopper in the game! Not to mention that this game is about saving Mii faces, but defeating this monsters only releases Sun Glasses! Most characters on this list are just characters people don't like, but Doo-Whopper is just plain forgettable!
