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 - 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.

How dare you, his splash can eradicate every Pokemon on Earth. - Delgia2k

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

Magikarp is a good for nothing, honestly. - FineDough

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.

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.

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 - Super Smash Bros. Melee

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.

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 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'.

8 Villager - Minecraft
9 Rosalina - Super Mario Rosalina - Super Mario Rosalina, known as Rosetta in Japan, is a major character in the Mario Bros . Franchise . She first appeared in the popular Mario Game, Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 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. - Rue

Oh here's another joke! - DaisyandRosalina

You Rosalina Haters are Dum Dums. - DCfnaf

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Jerry - Undertale
12 Papyrus - Undertale 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. V 1 Comment
13 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.

14 Princess Daisy - Super Mario Bros 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.

Wrong, they needed her for Super Mario Land, and if she didn't exist, Wario and his universe wouldn't either. - DCfnaf

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

15 Wendy O. Koopa - Super Mario 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.

Lol, I'm guessing Wario is on the list because of a certain visitor. - DCfnaf

16 Sean - Street Fighter III: Third Strike

If you examine any tier list for SFIII: Third Strike you'll find that Sean is widely considered the worst character, and that's probably because he's rocking a moveset that's exactly like Ryu and Ken's, only worse in every way. No wonder he belongs on our list of the 10 Most Useless Video Game Characters.

17 Sora - Kingdom Hearts
18 Princess Elise - Sonic the Hedgehog

Because it's still a video game?

Why the hell is ANYTHING from Sonic 06 here?!? Leave now! - FineDough

19 Peach - Super Princess Peach
20 Condiment King - Lego Batman 3
