Top Ten Worst Super Smash Bros Ultimate Characters

Disclaimer: The game isn't released at the time of this lists making so this list will NOT be accurate when the final version of the game is released.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the 5th game in the Smash Bros. Franchise for Nintendo Switch, every previous fighter from the games are here and they're ready to beat the everliving hell out of eachother. Although some are too weak to last in the battlefield. These are the 10 worst Ultimate fighters.

The Top Ten

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

Makes me fall asleep

Most of the time you're accidentally putting yourself to sleep when you play with this crappy character - myusernameisthis

Although I don't think that this character is the absolute worst, I'm not fond of Jigglypuff. His final smash is pretty bad. It's meant to throw you offstage as to damaging you,but really, it doesn't do much of anything in my opinion. And in general, he's just not that good of a fighter. He's not very strong or fast. And those are some important qualities. - Transformers234

"His final smash is pretty bad."
"ARE YOU ASSUMING MY GENDER!? " - Feminist Jigglypuff

2 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.

You're opinion guys he's my favorite fighter of all of them!

Bruh, he's the sexiest character there is

His specials and combos are seemingly not very good with the exception of his average recovery.
I have never gotten destroyed by a Dedede player and have hardly ever seen them online.

I'm lumping all these big boys together since heavyweights aren't exactly regarded as the best fighters. I'm actually a Dedede main myself and it pains me to say that people think he is low tier... and I know it's probably the case. Then again, he is a bit faster so even though he is low tier, he is still usable - just like everybody else on this list, don't be discouraged by a character just because they are low tier, you can still do great with them if you try. - DapperPickle

3 Pichu 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. After its more.

Just doesn't deliver strong enough attacks to make him a worthwhile character to play as. - myusernameisthis

Actually, Pichu was REALLY buffed. I'm not joking. He's considered one of the best characters. - Drawbox

"If he still damages himself... - B1ueNew"

Dumb mentality. Despite hurting himself, he was massively buffed in the most recent smash game. He is literally a better Pikachu and a very strong glass canon that is top tier in Ultimate if used properly.

If he still damages himself... - B1ueNew

4 Dark Pit

Dark pit is my favorite character he's a lot cooler and better than ordinary pit

I always had a grudge against Dark Pit - he is a waste of space and isn't even that good. Oh well. - DapperPickle

I like how you completely disregard how Dark Pit is an echo fighter in Smash Ultimate, I mean there's literally a setting that makes the echo fighters share the same spot as the main fighter - GabrieltheGamer

We might as well just lump pit in here with him because they're the same thing - TheInsomniac

Yeh he not good - Thisisamerica

5 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.

Donkey kong rocks

This Is WRONG.

Again, DK probably isn't 2nd worst as of now. DK has been regarded as a low tier from what most people say at the moment. DK probably won't even be on the list on December 7th, he will most likely get better. - DapperPickle

6 Ice Climbers

The Ice Climbers have always been terrible. - PackFan2005

I did in fact play Brawl, and it was even my first smash game. I still say they suck. - PackFan2005

7 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.

He does a lot of damage, but is a bit hard to control since he is a heavyweight character. Any character can be good if you know what you’re doing.

Bowser is just like DK. Said to be low tier, although it's uncertain whether or not he'll still be on the list when the game releases. - DapperPickle

What? bowser is fun! - myusernameisthis

Hopefully he’s not low tier. Bowser isn’t that bad if you know what you’re doing - Randomator

8 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.

Zard is trash man

Ditto with The Bowz & Expand Dong. - DapperPickle

9 Wii Fit Trainer

Wii fit was average at best - Smash64

I mostly use this character as a joke. - myusernameisthis


I wanted Wii fit trainer to be a stronger fighter so she could be considered a lethal joke character. Instead she’s just a joke and her final smash copy’s Mario’s already kinda lame one.

10 Isabelle

Y'know, the 3 actual best competitive characters, Olimar, Daisy and Pichu, are all in the top 15 on this list. Gotta love the casual smashers. Little mac is actually much worse than isabelle due to there being such an easy way to counter him, but I couldn't really bother to find it so I picked the first bottom-tier character I could find, Isabelle.Don't say a character is bad just because you can't play them - Rageg_

This site is doo doo and should stub their toe

Most unoriginal moveset. Half of it she never did in-game. - LittleAwesomeApple

Isabelle main here :)

She's pretty good honestly, not as good as Villager, but still a decently good character. - Drawbox

The Contenders

11 Cloud

I don't really like this guy. I'm sorry

Should have been Black Mage - Smash64

That "god-tier" is why a lot of people hate him. And really, he's just a very lucky overpowered emo kid, not that great a character in any medium.

He wasn't on a Nintendo system before, his game was a hot sell for the original PLAYSTATION, and him being god-tier is actually a turn off for many.

12 R.O.B.

Actually rob is pretty buffed, I'm not even joking, just use his spinning attack. - myusernameisthis

R.O.B. is not a video game character. Literally the worst idea for a smash fighter. Dora the Explorer would make a better smash fighter. - Smash64

He’s ok I guess - Thisisamerica

13 Daisy 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. more.

Don't really care for Daisy as a character, but in reality, she's actually one of the best characters. - Drawbox

Why was she added instead of Waluigi? So Sakurai could piss off fans by giving them hope, and then quickly taking it away from them. What a dick! - Smash64

Being the damsel-in-distress for one game is not doing much. Even in Smash, she is barely different than Peach. - LittleAwesomeApple

Yes easily the worst peach is already a bad character now we have the same bad character with a annoying voice still better than pichu - Dvafan2


But some people do not like every Mario character. Some people tend to hate some more than others. What is wrong with that? - LittleAwesomeApple

14 Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

He is very bad

Don't you dare talk crap about my favorite fighter! - Smash64

He's not that bad actually... - Qryzx


15 Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

overrated. - myusernameisthis

16 Olimar Olimar is a fictional character from Nintendo's Pikmin video game series created by Shigeru Miyamoto.

Why isn't he higher on this list?

Olimar has always been trash

Olimar sucks so bad, his moveset it trash and all he does is throw veggies at people then say: “come back! ” His final smash is only good if the ship hits the opponent. Concluding: Olimar sucks.

My argument on Why I main this guy (some is just butthurt for the pikmin series) Why does everyone think the pikmin are veggies? Do you even care that olimar has fire AND electric attacks? Are you to dumb to give him a chance? - Scarytar44

17 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.

He only survived Galeem because Sakurai wanted us to start with the weakest character in the game and unlock stronger ones as we go. Take that, Kirby mains! Boom roasted!

I don't really care for the Kirby franchise, but in Smash, Kirby was nerfed horribly. - Drawbox

Kirby is trash

I hope Kirby is good and buffed this time around - Dvafan2

18 Young Link

Just a clone of Link - DumbWays2DieFan

19 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.
20 Incineroar Incineroar, known in Japan as Gaogaen, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He is a wannabe Sumo Wrestler.

Can't stress enough how bad this one is. Worst final evo starter.

Literal trash - Smash64

Brain dead character

21 Ivysaur

Pokemon trainer should be Bulbasaur, Wartortle, and Charizard. The Bulbasaur line gets more hate as it evolves. So it makes sense to put the first evolution in smash. - Smash64

He always says "Ivy" shut up - DumbWays2DieFan

22 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.

Maybe you only added him on the because your a Legend if Zelda Fan.

Mario is the best character

23 Dr Mario

Literally a missing echo fighter that could have been a Mario costume. - DaisyandRosalina

Dr mario is my main Shut up about him! :( - Xomanxy

24 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.
25 Toon Link

At least he's not a total clone like Young link, and actually represents something. - Smash64

Huge clone of Link and Young Link, represents the worst Zelda Game, don't you ever call Young Link a clone!
(echo fighter) Toon Link is a huge clone who replaced Young Link in the past, but Young Link is back, Toon Link should be higher on the list as he has poor strength and a predictable recovery and was nerfed horribly which he deserves

26 Villager
27 Mr.Game & Watch
28 Piranha Plant

Only trolls love it (yes, it's an "it"- deal)


So? Smash isn't only about fan service, this is just something the developers wanted to do - GabrieltheGamer

29 King K. Rool King K. Rool is a fictional anthropomorphic crocodile and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Donkey Kong video game franchise, as well as the archenemy of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

Hasn't been in a game for years. Why was he so highly requested? - Smash64

Are you serious he's a literal brain-dead character - Drawbox

30 Kawaii

This isn't even a real character - GabrieltheGamer

31 Richter

We didn't need Richter. Not only was Uppercut and Grand Cross ONLY used by him, but the only difference between him and Simon is the colour of the Holy Water. We should have gotten Alucard like originally intended.

32 Ridley 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 more.

What are you talking about he’s op

Why did you idiots want him in Smash? Why? - Smash64

33 Robin

So low tier. And despite that, PEOPLE STILL USE HIM. NERF HIM. - Mattblue66

34 Pit
35 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.

Still obnoxiously overpowered. And I still have zero interest in her X rated Lovecraftian shoot-em-up game.

Who actually cares about Bayonetta? - DumbWays2DieFan

My T.V. is lucky I haven't thrown my controller through the screen even time I fell victim to her still-awful counter and Final Smash.

36 Greninja Greninja is a Water/Dark type Pokemon introduced in Gen 6. It is the evolved form of Frogadier and the final evolve form of the water starter Froakie. Aside from the usual Torrent ability all Water starters have (Which raises the power of its Water moves), it also the the ability Protean, which changes more.

It's between greninja, game&watch, mega man, and ice climbers for the absolute worst character. They all suck!

37 Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

The original obnoxiously overpowered third party character

Should not have come back. Samurai should have ignored Kojima's whining and not put him in Brawl if you're gonna throw "everyone is here" at me.

Lol no as of right now he's considered the best character - Drawbox

38 Roy
39 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.

Uh, @smash64? Yoshi has the yoshi's Island series, dumbass. Plus, I am a Yoshi main.

For the last time Nintendo, Yoshi is not a separate franchise. Useless character. - Smash64

Bro this character so gay though legit IT had to call its whole nuclear and extended family just to run over me it's so annying. I hope Yoshi burns in the deep pits of hell

Tell that to Bradware @smash64 - Mattblue66

40 Wario 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.

He so dumb and if I click on him by mistake I will let the fighter just kill me and when he farts it is just a death wish when you are in the air

41 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.

She wastes space in almost every Mario spinoff - DumbWays2DieFan

42 Link Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.
43 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.
44 Byleth

Very disappointing. Who asked for this?
Byleth plays the same as every other Fire Emblem character.

It is apparently mediocre

45 Marth Marth is a fictional character from the Fire Emblem series, developed by Intelligent Systems and owned by Nintendo. He is the protagonist and Lord class character in the first and the third games in the series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, more.


46 Samus Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

But she is considered the sexyiest charter

47 Luigi Luigi is a fictional character featured in video games and related media released by Nintendo. Created by prominent game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Luigi is portrayed as the slightly younger but taller fraternal twin brother of Nintendo's mascot Mario, and appears in many games throughout the Mario more.

You stink

48 Inkling Girl
49 Palutena Palutena is a character from Kid Icarus (1987), Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters (1991), and Kid Icarus: Uprising (2012). She is also a playable character in Super Smash Brothers for 3DS and WiiU (2014), and in Super Smash Brothers: Ultimate (2018). She is the goddess of light and ruler of Angel Land, more.

You dummy palutena is my 2nd favorite!

50 Mega Man Mega Man, known as Rockman in Japan, is the title character and the protagonist of the Mega Man series by Capcom.

I personally think Mega Man is extremely weak. - Transformers234
