Worst Nintendo Characters

A list of all the Nintendo Characters that shouldn't exist.

The Top Ten

1 Rosalina (Mario) Rosalina (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.

Too many Daisy lovers are on this site. Rosalina is a great character, but I think people are hating on her because she got into smash and daisy didn't, which is unjust. I like rosalina. I think that some daisy fans won't hate on rosalina because she got into smash. Anyways, give me five good reasons to hate rosalina.

She's awesome

She's cool

She's developed

She's another female character

She has magic

Oh wait...THOSE ARE FIVE GOOD REASONS. So I agree with you, they should give us reasons why she is bad. - DCfnaf

Those stupid Daisy Fans put her on here. I don't hate Daisy anymore, but come on! How is Rosalina worse than Navi and Peach? Rosalina is a fantastic, complex, developed, and unique character to the series. She is not a Peach knockoff and she is not replacing your precious Princess Daisy. Get off of this site! - DCfnaf

Uh excuse me. NO no no no. She is amazing she is what the princess of STARS. Have any of you played Mario kart she is a good loser. Unlike daisy or peach she just says oh well. Not I lost the world is ending. Plus she can fend for herself. And her castle home looks amazing.

Rosalina Is awesome sure I'm a daisy fan but Rosalina is just so awesome

2 Peach (Mario Series)

After all those times that Mario saved her, she can't save herself. She's completely dumb. In Super Princess Peach, she returns the favor to Mario, and yet she still doesn't protect herself. She just lets Bowser kidnap her for whatever reason!

Princess Peach should totally switch spots with Rosalina. Why is Rosalina top 1 anyways?! THIS IS THE WORST LIST EVER!

Overrated. annoying. cutesy and ditzy. pointless. I'd rather jump into the screen and kill her

Peach needs to drink bleach so she will die.

3 Navi (The Legend of Zelda) Navi (The Legend of Zelda)

Bless her, she's just trying to helpful... "Hey! Listen! Okay now. You say that one more time and I'll rip your wings off!

HEY! LISTEN! Yes Navi, I already saw that. HEY! LISTEN! I know, thank you!

I wish she would be more specific on where to go instead of saying the exact same thing over & over again.

I want to squash her

4 Resetti (Animal Crossing)

Ok, I don't mind Resetti! He's kind of funny actually. And plus, one time, it was like the 12th times I reset my game and he said "Well now you crossed the line, and you are going to be sorry! " Then my screen went black for like 10 seconds. I was like, flipping out, I thought he restarted my WHOLE town! Or he broke the game! But then it went back and I was still there and he said "I got you didn't I. " And I never reset my game again.

If you restart the game or turn off the power during the game, you have to listen to screaming angry mole making a speech on why it's bad to restart and turn off the power. He'll even come it the power goes out or if the game is accidentally unplugged. He sometimes will even make you say something stupid like, "I will not restart anymore! ", you have to spell perfectly the way he tell you or you have to start over and do it again.

I hate this character so much. It's like Nintendo went out of their way to make the most annoying character with the most annoying endless dialogue and accompanied by the most annoying repeating almost off key jingle for the entire time he's on the screen - which is always way too long!

I think the things he says are funny! Animal Crossing wouldn't be the same without him, you know!

5 Unown (Pokemon) Unown (Pokemon) Unown is a Psychic type Pokémon from the Johto region, taking on the form of letters and punctuation. It is often considered the weakest Pokémon, with low stats and access to only one move, Hidden Power (which can be learnt by nearly every Pokémon anyway)

To Japan, American symbols were cool. Similar to how we think Japanese symbols are cool. Despite its stats & how horrible it is in battle. The concept for Unknown isn't bad though.

This Pokemon is basically the alphabet that you've learned in preschool. This is not what I would call a Pokemon! I would rather call this the worst alphabet system ever!

It was designed in japan so too the majority of japan they were very interesting symbols - Retroman64

Well it's not really bad. It teaches kids the alphabet!

6 Bowser Jr. (Super Mario) Bowser Jr. (Super Mario) Bowser Jr., or sometimes simply Jr., is a video game character who appears in Nintendo's Mario franchise as the secondary antagonist. As his name implies, he is the son of the series' primary antagonist, Bowser.

He's so overrated and ridiculously overused.

By the way, which stupid moron added Rosalina on this list?

Probably A butt hurt Daisy fan who thinks Daisy should've been in Smash. Too bad, Daisy serves no purpose. - DCfnaf

I kinda like this character he is cool

What why is he here - ikerevievs

Lol dcfnaf getting triggered by this list YASSS!

7 Dark Pit (Kid Icarus) Dark Pit (Kid Icarus)

Are you serious...? Dark Pit cheers me up when I'm down.

What? He's a badass!

Edgy, edgy, edgy.


8 Princess Daisy (Super Mario Series) Princess Daisy (Super Mario Series) 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.

While I actually rake Daisy as my favorite Mario game female she needs development. It's now a misconception that she's a clone of Peach these days. Yes back in the early blocky pixel days she was, but the same can be said for Luigi being a clone of Mario. But Luigi gets treated differently these days, so why not Daisy? Since then she's become rather different in personality. She's more outspoken, spunky and sassy. Heck she right crossed Bowser in the Mario Party series. Her more aggressive style attitude would make her perfect for another role-reversal game when she saves Luigi. If they did that, they could bring back the enemies from Super Mario Land who have been seen in quite some time.

I see a lot of complaints about her voice being annoying, and for a while I was actually in agreement. I'm actually a relatively new Daisy fan. I became a fan through Double Dash after I bought it on Ebay. After some time her voice grew on me and now I play as Daisy more than I do my regular ...more

Daisy is great but, Daisy And Rosalina I just want you to see it in my opinion okay. I kinda look at daisy and if I make her hair longer, blonde, and her dress pink. What do we get? Princess peach.

Stop hating on Rosalina and daisy!

Peach clone color: yellow

9 Jynx (Pokemon) Jynx (Pokemon)

ALL the single ladies, ALL the single ladies, put your hands UP, & RUN AWAY!

Stupidest pokemon ever

10 Villager (Animal Crossing)

When they announced Villager for ssb4 I reacted how most reacted to mega man.

I hate him because he stole a spot in ssb4

The Contenders

11 R.O.B. (Super Smash Bros Brawl)

Actually if all beams hit in his final smash it actually becomes the most powerful final smash in the whole series.
His recovery is most likely among the best in the series and is huge threat if used correctly. So he is pretty useful.
Just wanted to put that out there.

I love rob he hurt avgn however put him here can die in a hole

He's usseles and rarely has ben worse than that damn dog from Duck Hunt, I really hate this robot, because he hurt the AVGN.

Yeah,I hate him for beating Avgn,also because my brother plays as him and says he's good

12 Waluigi (Mario Series) Waluigi (Mario Series) Waluigi is a selfish, greedy man who works closely with the infamous Wario. He is Luigi's rival and is known as the opposite of him. Waluigi first appeared in the Gameboy Color game, Mario Tennis as Wario's partner. He has appeared in every Mario Tennis game since, still remaining as Wario's partner. ...read more.

This thing represents everything wrong with a character. Annoying personality, atrocious design, zero creativity, and no purpose. His fans defend him by saying his name is a pun, but his name was conceived the exact same way Wario's was, further establishing his status as a craptastic Wario ripoff. A five-year-old could've designed something less lame. Oh, and the "TOO BAD WALUIGI TIME" gag is annoying and it's not even part of the canon character.

Absolutely stupid idea. How do you rip off Wario, a ripoff of Mario? And what's more - WHY?! Pointless, stupid, unoriginal, overrated. Die.

HOW IS THIS NOT NUMBER ONE AND ROSALINA IS? Waluigi is easily one of the worst characters they've cooked up. He's pointless, unoriginal, and pathetic. His fans also suck. - DCfnaf

Waluigi is just a Reskin of a Monster.

13 Wii Fit Trainer (Wii Fit Plus)

She may have replaced krystal from star fox stupid Wii fit trainer

The Wii fit trainer is cool she helps people and it is just so funny that she is in smash bros dudes.

I hate how people say these characters wasted slots. Who gets into the game is up to Sakurai not you.

Wii fit trainer should die

14 Tingle (Legend of Zelda)

He should be much higher, I would rather be taking a diarrhea on Bugs Bunny than seeing this abomination!

LOL Tingle haters...

Seriously man, he's just another NPC in the Zelda games, nothing to be freaked out over. Don't like him? Then don't pay any attention to him unless you have to. Simple as that.

15 Luigi (Mario)

He the best Nintendo character!

Why is he on the list!

Why the heck is luigi on the list luigi is the second best Nintendo character Mario is the best though

I hate him! He is overrated trash.

16 Zubat (Pokemon) Zubat (Pokemon) Zubat, known in Japan as Zubat, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Never go in a cave in Pokemon again because... Well you know.

Screw off people. He evolves into Crobat for gods sake

How come no one complains about tentacool? At least Zubat evolves into Crobat.

Why so much hate for Zubat?

All these people do realize he evolves into Crobat, one of the fastest and most varied pokemon in the games?

He knows all of the elemental fangs, etc. I mean seriously, come on. - Kaiserness

17 Monita (Super Mario Bros)

Why does she follow you around in Nintendo Land?

Because Nintendo decided that a helping/guiding character was necessary. - Treacle

18 Pigma Dengar (Star Fox)

Pigma's a greedy fat slob who betrayed Fox's father and left him die by the hands of Andross. Not a likable character, and it brings satisfaction to my eyes whenever I shoot down Pigma in 64, Assault, Command or Zero.

19 Serena (Animal Crossing)

I have wasted over 500 axes and 250,000 bells trying to get the golden axe from her and... I STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT! >:( I hate Serena! What was the point of Nintendo creating her? They could have easily made an easier, better way to get the gold axe. I'm getting sick and tired of doing the same thing over and over again and getting the same, bad result. When ever I finally get the golden axe, I'm going to kill Serena with it! >

Where to begin
most of the time this " critter " will take my axe but in a slim 0.00000001 chance I could get a silver or gold axe
but after modding my Wii save I gave myself a gold axe to save hassle - AndyMetal92

20 Ridley (Metroid) Ridley (Metroid) 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.

His fans are really annoying.

He shal not b on this list

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

Ok, come on. Link himself is on this list, but not this abomination? Seriously, you guys don't know what makes a character bad and what makes one good

WHAT! How could you put link here. He's awesome. So much better than Mario. Mario dies in 1 hit, he even gets gets hurt when he simply TOUCHES one of those non threatening little goombas.

How the heck is he annoying, he can't even talk?

He's a gay wad

22 Wario (Super Mario Series) Wario (Super Mario Series) 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.

Fart fart fart fart fart

Aww, guys get him off the list (this is a wario fan). I know he's disgusting and rude, but that's his personality. - DCfnaf

Some people find his disgusting and rude personality funny. Others just find it off-putting. People in the latter group are why he's on the list. - Treacle

Waluigi is better

The ugliest mario expy

24 Wendy O. Koopa (Mario) Wendy O. Koopa (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.

She's ugly, annoying and bratty. I get that she's supposed to be a villain, but she's not even appealing as *that*. - Treacle

People hate her because of the T.V. Show. THE T.V. SHOW WASN'T CANON! I found Larry, Morton, Roy, and the "twins" annoying in this T.V. show also! I think she's hated because she is ugly and she's a girl. Pathetic. At least she's more interesting than Roy and Larry. - DCfnaf

25 Slippy Toad (Star Fox) Slippy Toad (Star Fox)

I would totally agree with this that annoy little frog deserves to be on this list

How is Link worst than Slippy?

At Least He's Better In The Later Games

Ness is the best. what you talking about

No. He shouldn't be here! - ShyGuySwag

What whats wrong with ness

No he ain't - marioandluigi

27 Mr. L (Super Mario Bros.) Mr. L (Super Mario Bros.)

Why? I like this character. Why hate him? - Super64Mario

Maybe some people thought he was "cheesy" or something? I don't know - I like him too. - Treacle

Why is he on this list? He's got literally NO FLAWS.

Because he takes the L

No way

28 Shedinja (Pokemon) Shedinja (Pokemon)

It is not bad! If you want a Pokemon that is as good as everyone makes him get garbador. It is the best, joint with shuckle, if you give it a life orb!

29 Malon (The Legend of Zelda)

Why is she on here

30 Birdo (Mario) Birdo (Mario) Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in ...read more.

This is understandable. It's very strange. - DCfnaf

31 Geodude Geodude

This Pokemon is quite decent except it being an absolute TROLL along with Zubat in gen 4

32 Fi (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)

Fi is probably the most boring Zelda partner and also the one who seems to tell you pointless information that you know (Low Batteries, Low hearts etc).

More annoying than Navi. Enough said

So annoying. Never helps. Nintendo went from midna to Fi. That's bad!

Slowly develops a character throughout the game and makes you sad for hating on her when she leaves. 1000000000000x better than Navi!

33 Krystal (Star Fox)

She never sat right with me back in the day when I played the Star Fox games. Now I know why. All she is, is a furry sex-symbol. And all she ever does is pine for Fox's attention and acts like a brat when she doesn't get it. All of her decisions are based on her feelings for him. She's annoyingly manipulative. And that outfit she wore in SFA? So unnecessary. She's really only there to be eye candy and to be Miss Satellite Love Interest. *sigh* I'm glad she hasn't been in a game since 2006. I'd be happy if she never showed up again or was retconned out of canon. I hate this character.

Her hatedom is worse, if anything.

34 Kersti (Paper Mario: Sticker Star)

She is incredibly unhelpful and also doesn't know the difference between Bowser and Mario (at the start).

Her advice is useless and at the start she mistaken Mario for Bowser

35 Pichu (Pokemon) Pichu (Pokemon) 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.

Horrible in smash too - ikerevievs

It's intended to suck in Melee. It's supposed to be the weakest character so that strong players can pick it as a handicap. Of course, whether you think having an intentionally underpowered character is a good or bad thing is up to you. - Treacle

Weak,cute and extremely annoying to breed,evolve and win against a level one unown for crying out loud

36 Giygas (Earthbound) Giygas (Earthbound)

Tragic and misunderstood. is there a way to save this character?

37 Gamelon (Legend of Zelda)
38 Barold (Animal Crossing)

Ugly. Also, what idiot put Bowser Jr. and Waluigi on here?

39 Spoiled Rotten (Wario Land 4)

The name says it all. - xandermartin98

40 Toad (Super Mario Bros) Toad (Super Mario Bros) Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. Franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, USA exclusive Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. Since then he has been a reoccurring ...read more.

You try to bloody help us but you just die at like the first level you baldy mushroom

41 Tiara (Super Mario Odyssey)

A completely worthless addition to the cast. You'd think she'd be interesting: Nintendo waited to reveal her, and she's the sister of Cappy, who has capturing powers. Maybe Bowser tries to force her to mind control Peach into accepting the forced marriage? Maybe she'll allow Peach access to capturing powers? Alas, she does neither (she's only kidnapped because Bowser wanted his bride to have a tiara... LAME). She's just another damsel in distress in a franchise notable for its overuse of that trope, and her lack of characterization means you don't even feel good about saving her. The worst part is that she didn't even need to be in the game. Her only real purpose is serving as the excuse for Cappy to team up with Mario, but they could've just had Cappy say "Oh, that horrible monster who trashed my homeworld kidnapped your princess? Let's team up! " - Treacle

42 Munee (Tingle's Rosy Rupee Land)
43 Pave (Animal Crossing)
44 Kid Icarus (Kid Icarus)

His name is Pit...

I just fell into the "Pit" - Super64Mario

45 Lucas (Mother 3)

What the heck?! Why is poor Lucas on here? Whoever put Lucas on here should get killed by the masked man!

Why is Lucas on here? Is it because in Smash it sounds like he is saying "PEANUT BUTTER! "?

Can he fight good no even zelda would beat him - marioandluigi

A shy boy with a lot of heart

46 Pit (Kid Icarus) Pit (Kid Icarus) Pit is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Kid Icarus series, first appearing in Kid Icarus for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986 and later appearing in Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters for the Game Boy in 1991.

I put this here because he is called pit not kid icruas - ikerevievs

47 Bubsy (Bubsy) Bubsy (Bubsy)

Bubsy sucks, but he's not made by Nintendo...

48 Francis (Super Paper Mario)
49 Mario (Super Mario Bros) Mario (Super Mario Bros) Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super ...read more.

Mario is on this list because of stupid game theory fans who take his theories as FACT and spread them around. ITS JUST A THEORY. - DCfnaf

Mario is amazing and cool why is he on here he rules

Who the hell adds Mario & Rosalina on a bad list?! Some people today man...

I don't hate Mario but he is way too low on this list
