Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros. Melee Characters


The Top Ten

1 Pichu Pichu

He's a fail of a character, because he hurts himself. And why are Peach, Dr. Mario, Ice Climbers, and Jigglypuff here? Have you guys ever seen the official tier list? Jigglypuff, is the 3rd best character, and Peach, Doc, and Ice Climbers are up there. Ice Climbers are hard to get used to but they're amazing. Also, Pikachu is not amazing in every smash game. He's the best character in the original (not my words, the words of all the pros that made the tier list), and he's really good in Brawl. In Melee he's the worst he's ever been, although still pretty decent. He's not bad, but not good. Roy should be up here too. He has all the disadvantages of Marth and non of the advantages.

What's the point of playing as Pichu? He's an extremely lightweight and slightly faster clone of Pikachu, who is already fast and lightweight. The main difference is that Pikachu doesn't hurt himself!

And that Pikachu doesn't do that run Bowser does.

Pichu is pretty bad, but he's not an awful character. His neutral aerial is very good, allowing you to damage without hurting yourself, and he has decent finishers. His main drawback is that he hurts himself, but otherwise, he's only a slightly below average character.

Pichu is wrong to be in the game. Having pikachu in the game was fun but pichu it sucks

2 Peach

I would love for daisy to replace peach because her final smash can bloom flowers everywhere and then the players will get stuck and when they are stuck there health will get bad then when it's over she can hit them out unlike peaches stupid smash were it only helps the health and even when you get it when the characters wake up they just take peaches food from her final smash so I would love daisy to be in there

Whoever said the thing about the final smash and replacing with daisy I have something to say. THIS IS MELEE NOT BRAWL! And my opinion on peach, she was pretty good in melee.

Even at 7, Peach is so low on the list & doesn't prosper in Melee.

Peach is a princess in a pink dress to be clear this means she is not ready for any type of brawl

3 Ice Climbers

If one dies, the other Ice Climber is totally useless. - Blubbydubber1

Blasphemy! The Ice Climbers are very useful. I have not played the game, but playing in Brawl, they can hold two items at once. They can use a hammer and a super scope. Taunt with an item! - Undisputedlightweightmaster

This at #2 blows my mind. If popo gets a grab, then you're done for, because of the ice climbers' wobbling technique, which allows you to build up damage infinitely without any chance of your opponent escaping. This alone turns them into a good, but not fantastic, character.

List creator, just no. have you even played super smash bros melee?

You are completely wrong even with pichu being number 1# please refrain from making any smash bros lists in the future because you have literally no idea what the heck you doing.

Is there any player in this game worse than Pichu? Pikachu was only decent as Melee as it is, so making a smaller clones who is doing constant damage is a complete mistake. By all means, give me a character worse than Pichu. - Blubbydubber1

Ice climbers are all right but once one partner dies they are impossible to win with

4 Dr. Mario Dr. Mario

I just read this article, on how the director almost kills himself overthinking super smash bros. Characters. And then we get Dr. Mario... Sorry I don't buy it


He's a clone, and he stole Luigi's thunder attack. He's good gameplay wise but bad in execution (explosive pills, maybe? )

Most clone characters suck but this one is alright

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

Among more serious and technical players, Jigglypuff is very widely known to be the 5th best character in the game. That means Jigglypuff is better than 4/5 of the entire game's cast (and has an insanely good matchup against Fox, the #1 character). That's impressive! This is due to Jigglypuff having some of the best aerials in the game that can easily string into each other, a great approach, being easy to learn, and having REST. Rest, a very quick attack with the strength of Ganondorf's Warlock Punch. Hard to hit with, you say? Git good

Must I remind you that this is melee not brawl, and for the fact that he is the 5th best character in melee, which means ness peach donkey kong and maybe Mario should be higher on the list? You all might not know his true power

Come on guys. What were you thinking. Nintendo absolutely ruined Jigglypuff by reducing the area his rest moves hits. Seriously, the kill combo was ruined because they stuffed up his rest.

At least he still has his good aerial fighting skills. But a lot better in N64.

Jigglypuff has to be careful with his roll if it doesn't hit somebody he's dead

6 Young Link Young Link

Just because he is a link clone doesn't mean he is bad

He's just link, but smaller. What makes him so great? Nothing.

7 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.

At high-level play, kirby is an awful character. He has a horrible approach, and his projectile and grabs are both bad. His one useful tequnique is his fence of pain, a less effective version of jigglypuff's wall of pain, which is pretty useful for preventing an enemy's recovery.

Kirby?! What the hell?! Kirby is great. What is wrong with this list?!

Peach and Zelda shouldn't be up there they shouldn't be on the list! Kirby is one of the worst melee characters not the worst but close! - rainbowdashrules

Kirby really 'Sucks' in the game, get it?

8 Ness Ness

Man, you all are a bunch of trolls. You eat human arm and legs for breakfast every morning like the dirty cannibals you are

Ness is the 5th best player in the game next to lucas kirby greninja and Mewtwo

Yeah you all are cannibals, you dirty Ness-haters!

Ness is a sweet little boy!

9 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo is kinda difficult to use. His speed is fairly average and has really good jumping.

But the problem is that his moves doesn't give a lot of damage.
Cause of that, I wasn't able to play Crazy Hand on Classic Mode even though I didn't use a continue and I was playing on Normal.

Reason I voted was because people don't know how to use him

He might be a good Christian role model, but he still sucks in Melee!

Mewtwo is the best character of all time so whoever said he sucks they suck

10 Mr. Game & Watch

Mr game and watch is a good character. You just have to know how to use him.

He is the most dumbest character ever invented along with duck hunt dog, he is so pointless he is just a shadow with boring attacks

Mr. game & watch is the worst character in the game right next to olimar and toon link

The Contenders

11 Yoshi Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo.

What is wrong with you people? Yoshi is great. I don't care what the tier list thinks.

These lists pretty much have every character on here, even Fox. This is why you should never make a top ten worst smash characters list, because you always tick off somebody.

He gets more sudden deaths then about anyone. - Blubbydubber1

Yoshi is the 5th worst character next to toon link olimar and Mr. game & watch

12 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.

What no he super punch is great he's not bad

Donkey kong is just like Bowser he's all about brutal force

15 Bowser Bowser Bowser is the main antagonist of the Mario Bros. Franchise. From kidnapping Princess Peach to simply destroying a fun game between Mario and Friends in the Mario Party spinoff series, this king of the Koopas has set up a certain hatred towards himself amongst the large cast of Mario Characters. He first more.

Bowser is just like donkey kong all about brutal force

You wanted Bowser to have a British accent? SINCE WHEN DID Bowser EVER HAVE A BRITISH ACCENT?

I wanted him to have a British accent, not a hyper-masculine deep voice.

Dude, hating Bowser for not having a British accent is like hating Waluigi for wearing purple. - TrueBlueHeroes

16 Roy

Roy shoots bullets so whoever put this roy here they are STUPID

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

Link shouldn't be here. He's awesome. He's my main character.

Links not that good in this game

Not necessarily a bad character, but just boring to play as.
