Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros. Characters


The Top Ten

1 Pichu Pichu Pichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

How is he at the top just for him electrifying himself, pichu us god - jackjack1

Probably the weakest character in the game! - SSByesHotelMariono

Raichu would have been so much cooler. - Smash64

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

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

She has bad recovery in the game and some of her attacks are useless - KingSlayer93316

Her attacks are useless

I've grown to hate this pink punk solely because of this game. She sucks in my hands, but whenever I'm fighting her CPU, she always kicks my ass. - Mcgillacuddy

3 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.

She's actually really strong and really high on the tier lists, what are you talking about? - RosalinaX

She sucks but she's important to the Mario franchise. - Smash64


Peach is in ssb but when whenever she gets kidnapped she does not use her attacks. That makes no sense. Anyone agree?

4 R.O.B

Not even a video game character. Does this mean Goku can be in Smash?! - Smash64

He is so good I have no idea why he is on this list

R.O.B?! You gotta be kidding me. I am really good with R.O.B, but his final smash kinda sucks - KingSlayer93316

Whoever put this on the list really doesn't know anything about this game.

5 Dark Pit Dark Pit

Stupid clone. Couldn't they have just made it a costume for Pit? - RosalinaX

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.

Clone and filler - KingSlayer93316

6 Dr Mario

Waluigi should take his slot. - Smash64

Sucks. - RosalinaX

He's just a clone of mario! I would have chose daisy to be in smash bros instead of dr. mario

I love Dr. Mario

7 Ganondorf Ganondorf Ganon (Referred to as Ganondorf in human form) is a fictional character and the central antagonist of Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. He is a power-hungry Gerudo who possesses the Triforce of Power and aims to conquer Hyrule with the remaining Triforce parts.

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

Brawl man... just brawl... and the fact that HE IS A CLONE OF CAPTAIN FALCON!

A. Clone of captain falcon
B. Brawl man... just brawl... - Mattblue66

8 Olimar Olimar

Why is he even a character? - RosalinaX

Pikmin sucks! Olimar is a big nosed spaceman who enslaves tiny vegetable creatures. - Smash64

Olimar's attack move are just... Illegal

Just pure trash

9 Mii

Just 4 words: Subject to torture porn

The only one who's bad - jackjack1

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.

He is a joke

10 Lucina Lucina Lucina is one of the main characters in Fire Emblem Awakening, as well as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Her most notable feature is her love for her father.

Her and Marth are literally the same to me. - RosalinaX

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.

Girl version of Marth - KingSlayer93316

She has small boobs. am I the only one who hates her

The Contenders

11 Meta Knight Meta Knight Meta Knight is a fictional character from the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory. He is one of Kirby's rivals, but occasionally teams up with the pink puffball to defeat a common enemy. Meta Knight is known for his powerful slashing attacks and flight in the Super Smash more.

Meta Knight shouldn't be on the list. He's really strong and he's one of my favourite fighters - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

One of the strongest fighters in the game. Why is he so hated? - Smash64

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

Metal night is da best

12 Ice Climbers Ice Climbers

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

The reason they are on this list is because of the broken grab combo that you cannot escape from.

I like ice climbers, they're great. I'm so good with them.

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.

V 21 Comments
13 King Dedede King Dedede King Dedede is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of the Kirby series of video games owned by Nintendo and HAL Laboratory.

He is terrible and mainly used for memes. Need I say more? - RosalinaX

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

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.

What's Wrong With King Dedede? - CuteGirlJigglypuff

14 Wii Fit Trainer

Has this guy ever learned about bad characters - SSByesHotelMariono

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.

15 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.

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

Zelda is way too slow, and her moves are laggy

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

16 Rosalina Rosalina 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 more.

Space Peach is crap. - Smash64

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

No one likes her and no one wanted her in Smash

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

17 Sheik Sheik

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. - 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

18 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

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!

19 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.

His down B move always works for me. Makes it easy to avoid damage. - Smash64

Have you people heard of Down A...

Who voted Kirby? - B1ueNew

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

V 10 Comments
20 Ness Ness

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.

21 Roy

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

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.

22 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

23 Princess Zelda Princess 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.

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

So bottom tier she is on the list twice. - DensestPotato

She’s on the list TWICE - KingSlayer93316

Yes she's bad, but is she really bad enough to appear twice? Absolutely ruthless...

24 Cloud Cloud

Cloud is my favorite Pokémon - jackjack1

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

25 Mario Mario 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 more.

HE'S MARIO - RosalinaX

He suck

No offense, but you are talking about Nintendo's mascot, and he is not that bad of a fighter.

Mario stinks. His attacks are weak in brawl, he is slow and his taunt sucks. he is a piece of crap. he should be a t the top of this list. and also, kirby is OP so I don't want to hear that crap.

26 Palutena Palutena

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.

28 Bayonetta Bayonetta Bayonetta, real name Cereza, is a fictional character and protagonist of the video game Bayonetta and its sequel, developed by PlatinumGames and published by Sega and Nintendo respectively.

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

That several characters I know HAD to have been wanted more than her are now set to appear in Ultimate is only making the alleged "ballot" look more and more like a CYA for Nintendo to put her in.

Kills our choice, inappropiate, broken, garbage.

29 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.

Worst Mario character. I hate Yoshi so much. Who knows where that tongue has been? (probably up Kirby's ass) - Smash64

A Yoshi is good

He has no recovery in Super Smash Bros so shut your mouths Yoshi fanboys!

Yoshi should be the best character because of his powers he should be the number 1 best

Super fighting robot, MEGA MAN! - Mattblue66

Is it just me, or do I fell like I’m doing no damage at all whenever I use him?

What's Megaman doing on this list? He rocks!

I only hate CPU Mega Man, because they spam mega buster, other than that he's pretty cool.

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

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

34 Pokémon Trainer

He is the reason we have the most retarded fighter in smash besides ganondorf... Charizard... - Mattblue66

He's the reasob why we never get a 3rd and a 5th gen representive.

The stupid pokemon tiring machinic made this character a gimmik instaed of a playable character - Dvafan2

Bad aerials and bad recovery. How is he 37 when half of his moves are bad?

You kidding me I hate this list. You have two awesome characters ahead of villager he deserves 1st place not 35 place and little mac is FANTASTIC. you have no life

36 Diddy Kong Diddy Kong Diddy Kong is a fictional character in the Donkey Kong series of video games, first appearing in the 1994 game Donkey Kong Country.

I kind of like him for his craziness.

Horrible with no attack power

37 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.

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!

38 Corrin Corrin

Ugh. Can Nintendo stop adding Fire Emblem characters? - RosalinaX

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!

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?!

40 Lucas

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!

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

Why is he on this list he is one of the best characters

46 Sonic Sonic 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.

His attacks are mostly just generic! - Cartoonnetworkfan1990

He's only weak because Nintendo hates him. Would be a lot stronger if SSB was made by Sega. - Smash64

Some stages suck for a sonic main, you just gotta know which ones.

Sonic is overrated and has a very annoying cult behind him. Same with Deadpool.

ALPH ALPH ALPH. It really freaks me out.

48 Bowser Jr. Bowser Jr. 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.

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
