Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros. Characters
The Top Ten
He is so bad, that he damages himself with his OWN attacks. I mean, seriously? Not only that, but it's super easy to knock him off the stage. - RosalinaX
He may not be bottom tier, but he is the worst super smash bros character ever and why? BECAUSE TIERS DON'T MATTER. TIER LISTS ARE MADE ONLY FOR THE VOTES. Kirby maybe the bottom tier character, but that doesn't mean he is the worst character in melee. It just means he is the least popular character in melee which means the REAL BOTTOM TIER TRASH CHARACTER IS PICHU
How is he at the top just for him electrifying himself, pichu us god - jackjack1
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.
Some people don't like Meta Knight. And tier's are from tournament results, so Meta Knights isn't everyone's favorite. - TheGamingGuy
Jigglypuff is only good in melee jigglypuff sucks in 4/5 games she is in - Dvafan2
She's just for trolling. Easy to knock off, the only reason why I would play as her is for the ability to send people to sleep and edgeguard. - RosalinaX
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.
Worst recovery in smash bros history. It’s so posed to propel you up, not make you go DOWN,
Peach, YOU SUCK!
She is the stupidest character ever. Why? Because she continuously get kidnaped. Its obvious she can fight, but she doesn't! And she's a show off!
She's actually really strong and really high on the tier lists, what are you talking about? - RosalinaX
Why isn't she at the top spot? She has the worst moves, she uses a character (Toad) who would make a much better character as her defense, she uses a tennis racket, a frying pan, and a golf club which is just plain stupid.
I've always hated Princess Peach, and now Nintendo has gone too far. This brat is the only reason why I consider Super Smash to be non-canon, she CANNOT FIGHT!
Zelda is also a princess, yet she can actually FIGHT! So she's excusable, but this Teacher's Pet is the complete opposite. Why Nintendo, why do you care so much about this one puny character that doesn't deserve to be a 'brawler'? - KennyRulz244444
Hopefully this isn't rude, but the golf club, tennis racket, and frying pan represent the Mario RPG game. - Manowar9
Peach has no original moves. That's why she has to use Toad, a frying pan, a tennis racket and a golf club as one of her moves. Butt wonk, really, is she Wario or something? - Wario
What do you mean she has no original moves? Her attacks are used from other games and make sense. You could say that Link is unoriginal because he shoots arrows and throws bombs! - RosalinaX
Whoever put this on the list really doesn't know anything about this game.
Not even a video game character. Does this mean Goku can be in Smash?! - Smash64
Rob, Wolf, and samus are boss get em off
R.O. B?! He's awesome! He's really tough to defeat!
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. - Donk
Stupid clone. Couldn't they have just made it a costume for Pit? - RosalinaX
They have a different move set and they play differently. Sakurai gave you options for the character at no cost to the roster, what's to complain about. - Donk
I think just Palutena was enough to better represent Kid Icarus. Dark Pit is just an edgy clone. - Smash64
I think he's the best cartor out there, when you get the best at him.
Had so much potential, but Sakurai thought it would be a good idea to make Ganondorf a clone of Captain Falcon. - Smash64
He was so strong, I ko'ed everyone with one hit when I timed it perfectly. Super strong, but super slow. - RosalinaX
Ganon is amazing when used correctly. He is the most powerful character in Brawl and 4
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!
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!
A cross of Mario/luigi's moves with lower accuracy. the pill attack can miss smaller fighters (pikachu, olimar) when they're just standing there. this one is better off as an assist trophy.
For those of you who hate Dr. Mario, you will not be happy when I tell you he'll be back in Smash Bros 4
Dr. Mario should've been left in obscurity. He is the clone nobody wants. Even his final smash is garbage.
Unless this is for brawl I see no reason why people are so salty. He's a ALIEN.geez these cloud players really need to learn culture - Scarytar44
Pikmin sucks! Olimar is a big nosed spaceman who enslaves tiny vegetable creatures. - Smash64
Olimar sucks in Brawl. They gave him a huge upgrade for Wii U. - Mcgillacuddy
Olimar's attack move are just... Illegal
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.
Every single time when I go up against her I always lose. She spams counters and combos constantly and when you go up against her, the game just laughs.
I think Lucina's worse of a clone than Dark Pit. Yes, I did just say that.
I don't really hate Lucina but it bugs me that she literally is a clone of one of my favorite characters Marth but she's a girl
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!
Well, that means your hating, YOURSELF. Do you even know why it's pronounced like "me"?
When I use them on 3ds super smash bros they are awesome so powerful to!
Meta Knight shouldn't be on the list. He's really strong and he's one of my favourite fighters - Cartoonnetworkfan1990
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?
Who the heck putted Meta Knight on there? Meta Knight is a good character.
I just hate the whole list.
I know this sounds stupid,but I spent like 3 hours in a tournament with all the characters in brawl,(I just had like 2 characters battle and whoever won would move up a level) and meta night got like 28th place
I like ice climbers, they're great. I'm so good with them.
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! - Granton8ter05
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.
Ice Climbers are actually pretty good. In brawl, they work really well, and I love the stage that the Ice Climbers have! =)
YOU KIDDING ME, there all good! Just learn how to use a character, the best character can actually be the worst. It just depends on the player an this comment goes for all the characters especially this one and dark pit! I mean PIT AND DARK PIT HAVE MOST OF THE SAME POWERS ITS JUST THEIR FINAL SMASH AND SIDE SPECIAL and other stuff I probably missed but whatever. The point is, they are all good and that you need to know how to use it.
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.
This character just ruins the mood.
Why is she so low. All here attacks deal less damage than pikmin. Don't try and main her.
WAY too slow. Really hard to hit people with him because of this.
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 - KingSlayer93316
What's Wrong With King Dedede? - CuteGirlJigglypuff
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
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.
Olimar and Pikmin and Ice Climbers aren't cheating even though they're more than one character? Shame on you. - RosalinaX
She isn't manly enough to fight her own battles so she makes the fighters hurt luma instead... Yeah real brave space peach
If you learn to use her, you would know all the advantages she has. And also, she is NOT Space PEach! - RosalinaX
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 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. - RosalinaX
Zelda just does not click for me because she really does not have great smash attacks
Literally bottom tier 3 games running now. Then we have Fox who has been high/top tier 4 games running. Absolutely rigged.
Her special is perfect for spamming. I got five KOs by pressing B the whole time. Also, she's one of the main characters in the Zelda series (which needs more slots). - Smash64
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?
I don't know, I've never played as her but I can already tell she's probably overpowered. - RosalinaX
I think fans were excited to see her when she first came out, but where disappointed by the fact that she was so overpowered. Thus, fans wanted her excluded from the game. - Transformers234
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.
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. - RosalinaX
Sheik is actually really good. Tricky at first but when you learn to use her then it can do great.
She sucks like crazy
Makes olimar look like meta knight in brawl
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 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
His down B move always works for me. Makes it easy to avoid damage. - Smash64
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
I hate this character, I was watching this guy on YouTube where he was playing super smash bros. but guess who won? Weak Ness won - Yoshi
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 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.
But Ness is amazing! I love his final smash.
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
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. - Blubbydubber1
What do you expect from a first-stage evolution? Water bombs that killed everyone on the screen but you?
Pikachu is overrated I like Squirtle
Jigglypuff is better than this.
He shoulda been replaced with Blaziken when he debuted with Pokemon trainer in Brawl. - Mattblue66
That up special is SO bad. I posted a rebellion sign-up for his HORRIBLE up move :3
Charizard sucks like shiek and dark pit
Straight up DEAD!
Why has she appeared twice? She's not that bad. People,actually use her and get to know her moveset before saying she's a bad and weak character idiots. - RosalinaX
Yes she's bad, but is she really bad enough to appear twice? Absolutely ruthless...
Holy crap you guys are idiots, she is so strong and I have defeated Tabuu and Master Hand with her
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.
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. - RosalinaX
Palutena has the most annoying warp in the WORLD. Enough said, I don't wanna mention anymore. I know enough on how bad she is.
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.
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.
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.
I Never Played the Fire Emblem Games but I Doubt Roy's Move-Set is Identical to Marth but has Fire In His Sword, Anyway He's not that fun to use compared to Marth and Lucina, Maybe it's because I never played Melee - s646451
No offense, but you are talking about Nintendo's mascot, and he is not that bad of a fighter.
Please take Mario off of this list. I'm really good with him. Trust me, you'll hate me when I use him... - nintendofan126
No offense to you Mario mains, but Mario is one of my least favorite Smash Bros. characters. Other comments are saying he is good because he is Nintendo's mascot. That doesn't mean nothing at all. All of his attacks are generic and boring and nothing special about him
Guys, Mario isn't the best character, but he still is really good
Come on, he's not all bad
I'm sorry but they messed up its gay and watch
I hate fighting this character the most
Not even a real character
I actually beat the final boss with only yoshi at max difficulty! Kirby is the one who sucks.
Worst Mario character. I hate Yoshi so much. Who knows where that tongue has been? (probably up Kirby's ass) - Smash64
What I don't like is that he has no recovery. I cannot count how many times I have fallen off the stage trying to use his recovery, but all I end up doing is chucking a stupid egg that explodes into nothingness
Yoshi is so strong like in super smash bros. Wii U and 3ds where he is a super dragon where breathing fire is number 1, plus he is one of the oldest super smash bros. From 1999!
What's Megaman doing on this list? He rocks!
Super fighting robot, MEGA MAN! - Mattblue66
I only hate CPU Mega Man, because they spam mega buster, other than that he's pretty cool.
WHAT? MEGAMAN IS AWESOME!
Enough Links! Can't we get Impa or Midna instead of this VILE CREATURE? - RosalinaX
Why are there so many versions of Link. Can't we get some better Zelda reps. - Smash64
This link copy should be in the top ten - Spongehouse
Why is he on this list he is one of the best characters
Bland boring mascot trash
He is better than mr game and watch
I prefer Ike. - Smash64
He doesn’t speak English until ssbu
Screw him I hate his dumbass taunt that KOs you that pisses me off especially, one time I was challenging him for to unlock him and he used the taunt that KOs you and I died so bullcrap
I love his stomp taunt. I actually died laughing watching someone get ko'ed by it. - RosalinaX
Luigi is one of my favourite fighters
Luigi is broken like ness and dedede
Bulbasaur would be cooler. Bulbasaur is my favorite starter, but his evolutions are kinda ugly. - Smash64
Super slow, No recovery, One of the worst things about Brawl, using a wii mote with nunchck makes him even worse - B1ueNew
His attacks in sssb are weak and this guy is pretty slow too - B1ueNew
What is that
He is the reason we have the most retarded fighter in smash besides ganondorf... Charizard... - Mattblue66
Kiss him on the cheek
Pokemon trainer is awesome! why is he 21?!
The stupid pokemon tiring machinic made this character a gimmik instaed of a playable character - Dvafan2
Mate, y’all are voting for Pichu - the S tier who has zero to death combos - because he does about 1% to himself with some attacks. Meanwhile, all you have to do to beat Little Mac is just to stay and attack in the air.
When the best smash players say he's terrible you know he is not good - Dvafan2
Bad aerials and bad recovery. How is he 37 when half of his moves are bad?
Little Mac is the worst. his attacks are weak as hell! no wonder everyone hates him
I hate shulk he took the spot of the cool characters from brawl like ice climbers snake and Pokemon trainer.
Shulk is annoying. He is unplayable.
Shulk is a bastard! He is not that strong. He is unplayable.
Shulk sucks! He is a damn awful character. WHY NOT FOR ELMO?!
Cloud is in Smash as DLC, idiot and retard! And boy does everyone abuse his presence, only character more annoyingly overpowered and overused is Bayonetta.
At least I'm glad that Sora is not in the game. Smash doesn't need Kingdom Hearts representation. And yes, it is a true fact that Cloud is from Final Fantasy.
Yes Cloud is from Final fantasy but he is in Smash too
Cloud is in final fantasy idiot.
More like expand dong
Donkey Kong is awesome! Your list sucks! - Neinwott
I wonder what happens when he fights hulk?
DK is one of the best characters! WHY IS HE ON THE LIST?!?! STOP PUTTING HIM ON THE LIST!
Lucas. Oh boy! Lucas is not all that bad. Well, he might be a Ness clone, he is a great character even though being overshadowed by Ness. Yeah, Ness and Lucas have the hardest recoveries in the game to master, however, when mastered, get ready for amazing kills. Lucas's grab, which being grabbing the opponent with a rope snake, is one of the best grabs in the game. Seriously, Lucas can throw you down on the ground and with combo magic, you can stun the opponent. Overall, Lucas is a great character but like every character comes disadvantages like Lucas's recovery is difficult, his charge attacks are pathetic, PSI Magnet is... hard, etc. Lucas is a solid character, and I think more people should main him more.
Lucas is an amazing fighter, because he has slightly different than ness. you might as well say the same about fox/falco/wolf. they are similar in the EXACT SAME WAY.
Why are people saying he is a clone have you even played mother 3. Lucas is awesome he is very good he is almost a hard hitter.
Lucas is better than Ness! I mean, look at his up-smash! It's awesome!
Thousand of suggestions and America didn't get what they wanted, Japan did. Sakurai is only trying to make his homeland happy by giving Corrin! Japan is crazy about Fire Emblem, hence, Sakurai makes them happy with Corrin. Fire Emblem is Japan's favorite game, while, Mario is America's favorite game.
What a waste of a character! Thousands of suggestions and yet they chose one that nobody wanted!
The character no one wanted and yet Nintendo is forcing it on us. There is more to Fire Emblem than Marth clones!
He has a chainsaw sword, how "original," not. To me, he's just a marketing not ploy, given that FE Fates hasn't even come out as of yet. That spot could've gone to a ballot candidate with more deserving potential, but nope, we needed yet another sword wielder...not.
Captain toad waluigi and paper Mario would have been way better choices all she does is waste a spot on the roster - Dvafan2
Stop making excuses, Sakurai said clones don't steal the spot to other fighters and Daisy Captain Toad can't even jump, Waluigi is a worthless tennis partner and Paper Mario is another Mario. - DaisyandRosalina
We said less clones but now we have another useless clone now one of peach - Dvafan2
There is no reason for this waste of a character to be in Smash. He's not only boring, but he isn't even very iconic. I mean, who even remembers his original game, F-Zero? Not very many people at all. He's only known for his addition to Smash, but considering he came from a racing game with no combat, the only way people would recognize him is because of Smash, because of his "iconic" Falcon Punch. To make matters worse, he's not very strong. Hell, I'd prefer to play as his near-clone, Ganondorf. I'd rather have yet another anime swordfighter, at least people know and love them, but some generic racer who doesn't even fight in his original game? No thanks.
Strongest character in the game. He's basically One punchMan, because one Falcon Punch is all I need to send a character flying off the screen. - Smash64
Whoever put Captain Falcon on here deserves a falcon punch, from Falcon himself.
One of the best for sure.
He is much better than his copies. So he should defiantly be below young link - Spongehouse
Link doesn't need to be on this list! He can keep you busy with his bombs and arrows, then kill you with his sword while your distracted with his bombs and arrows!
I'm gonna kill you for hating link
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Link is awesome and he is actually quite powerful.
Link was already in the game, so why did they feel the need to add this pointless thing as well? - Spongehouse
Young Link is the best character in Smash ever! He should be in the BEST list, not the WORST list.
At least Toon Link wasn't a full clone like this one.
Young Link!? What were you all eating when coming up with these!?
Doesn't exist not even in flash
Doesn't exist. You're welcome.
Thank you for your time.
Umm... - KingSlayer93316
What is wrong with this list some of these aren't even in the actual game! (by the way tabuu is great, very hard to beat)
He's not playable - Jon8201
I think that Tabuu should never be a fighter,but I think he might be added eventually.
He is OP
No that's not true in my opinion I think he's the worlds best Nintendo character I think Nintendo can put Bowser Junior in every single Nintendo game in my opinion I think he should be the number one Nintendo character!
We were already seeing far too much of him in the actual "Mario" series; he did not need to make the leap to "Smash".
Nintendo, we've had quite enough of this little brat for the next three console generations at least! And I'm no fan of the Koopalings, either.
Bowser Jr is my main! Take him off! - DCfnaf
I was dreading to see this thing again.
This Pokémon is Ugly
Alph is an olimar costume the have the same moves why is alph better
ALPH ALPH ALPH. It really freaks me out.
Wh H does everyone start hating on reskins, especially alph? - Scarytar44
His powers are pretty stupid in my opinion. Especially his flying one - Spongehouse
My first ever DLC. I love this guy. - Tacocheese
Ugh! He's so ugly and I never wanted him! He stole a good characters slot like wolf, geno, sceptile, or starfy!
I think he's good
