Top 10 Worst Things About Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch

Today I'm talking about the top 10 reasons why Smash Bros Switch will fail.

The Top Ten

1 Made By HAL Laboratory, but not Bandai Namco

Look at me! I can see into the future and know if something that hasn't even come out yet is good! I'm a god! - Skullkid755

I feel like people only make these lists, because they just want attention.

HAL Laboratory has nonsense games like Kirby Star Allies, and JG's Adventure Resolution 4, The Power Plant of The Dead, and For Sparta. I hate HAL Laboratory games, but I love mature Nintendo games. Bandai Namco made some cool games like Tekken, Dark Souls, Soul Calibur, and Little Nightmares. - Neinwott

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that supposedly any opinion withheld by the creator of the list was objective fact. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Rip-off of Mortal Kombat

Uhhh, Did smash bros pretty much invent the "launch the player off the screen to win", street fighter is more of a health based fighting game, right?

"It has fighting, therefore, it's a rip-off of Mortal Kombat."

-The Mortal Kombat fanboy - TheDelBel

Other ripoffs including but not limited to: Street Fighter, Tekken, Pokken, Battletoads, Streets of Rage, Fatal Fury, Final Fight... *ahem* It's in the fighting genre. Konami didn't make up the fighting concept. - Brazencoronet17

Street fighter is a ripoff of Mortal Kombat because it has fighting in it. So your saying most fighting games are ripoffs?

3 Horrible Newcomers, but only one good newcomer

King K. Rool and Ken "Rool". But Isabelle and Daisy? What the heck? - Brazencoronet17

Daisy has no original move set and at least half of Isabelle's she never did in-game. - LittleAwesomeApple

F you King k Fing rool is the Fing best Thing Ever. And all of the new comers are fan favorites the only reason I agree is because WALLUIGI.

Dude, they only announced the Inklings so far as the recent newcomers. There hasn't been any news of other newcomers yet. Do your research, man. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Got any proof?

4 Terrible graphics

Terrible graphics? They've been getting better and better with each installment, pal. I would have to say the original Nintendo 64 game's graphics don't quite age well, but the graphics for later installments are much more improved. Same thing for Kirby too, bro. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Super Smash Bros. has horrible graphics more than Kirby. - Neinwott

Kirby stinks in everything, including graphics! Pfft, smash is superior. - Brazencoronet17

The game didn't even released yet and most the points on this list is obnoxious such as how it’s a rip off of this game or how this guy made this game which is retarded, most people are not even talking about the game, it’s mainly the newcomers that’s has potential to be in smash but they think that it isn’t welcomed in smash because they are owned by this company or they never played or heard of there respective games which is pretty biased. Also the Kirby franchise has been getter better and better with each new game, it’s one of Nintendo’s successful franchises that hasn’t had a bad game like Mario or the Legend of Zelda series.

5 Annoying AIs

Ha, I'm better than this boi and I can hardly kick a level 3 NPC - Brazencoronet17

I hate some AI's so much. - Neinwott

Aw, someone must really suck at playing video games so much if they can't even fight Lv1 CPU characters... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

6 Hard Challenges

Yep, someone must really suck at video games. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I always like to change that thing into easy. - Neinwott

7 Not T-Rated or M-Rated

Yet Bayonetta is still there...

Ahem, Brawl was T-rated... Even so, here's the thing: "T-Rated/M-Rated =/= Good Game" - ModernSpongeBobSucks

How do you know? It's not even out! - Drawbox

Super Smash Bros. is rated E10+, because it's boring as heck. - Neinwott

8 Too many characters with counter attacks

Let me guess. You have trouble trying to time counter attacks perfectly that you can't use these characters properly. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

We don't even know any characters yet other than Inkling, Mario and Link! - Drawbox

Aww, come on! Even though, there's Marth, Ike, Corrin, Little Mac, Mii Swordfighter, Shulk, JG Freestyle, Foxkloz, Alpha, Demonstrat Jr., and Bayonetta. But, there's two of these characters that have one, Lucario, Lloyd Irving, and Decidueye. - Neinwott

9 74 characters, and 66 need to be unlocked

This should be #1

Yeah, yeah, unlocking is half the fun or the only reason one would play at all yadda yadda. Can't we at least concede that there was no need to make THAT many characters have to be unlocked?

10 Bayonetta is still there, and no longer optional

Worse, the most recent software update seems to have de-nerfed her

And now there's even a big bald black male version of her as an Assist Trophy. Not to mention "spirits" from her series.

So (hypothetically) you were worried about Bayonetta being in "Smash 4". Then you realized she was only DLC and your kids don't play online anyway, so no problem. Now those same kids are begging for Smash Ultimate, but because they had to bring back LITERALLY EVERY PAST CHARACTER, that nasty (w)itch is in, not DLC, and apparently won't even need to be unlocked. Now what?

And she brought her lovechild with Mike Tyson as an Assist Trophy

The Newcomers

? Not enough Sonic characters

The Contenders

11 Boring trailers

This list's reasons are boring. YAWN. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yeah, because there are some of the most crappy trailers. - Neinwott

One trailer. - Drawbox

12 Go play any other Nintendo Switch Games

Or I can look forward to this Nintendo Switch game right here... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

"(blah blah blah) NOT THAT GOOD (blah blah blah) DON'T BUY THIS GAME (blah blah blah) SAVE YOUR MONEY (blah blah blah) THERE ARE SO MANY BETTER-OPTIMIZED GAMES OUT THERE" - xandermartin98

If you want a better Nintendo Switch games, go play JG's Adventure series, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Bayonetta 3, Breath of The Wild, Splatoon 2, Skyrim, PAYDAY 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, South Park Fractured But Whole, Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy (Cash Banooca M Saint Trilogy), Metroid Prime 4, and Dark Souls Remastered. But not Super Smash Bros Switch. - Neinwott

You didn't even put Sonic Mania or Super Mario Odyssey on your list. - Drawbox

13 Cloud is still there, and no longer optional

Most overrated video game character EVER! And he's from the first Final Fantasy game after Square and Nintendo parted ways.

14 Wolf and Snake are back

Didn't miss either of them

No, didn't misread the title of this list. Both of them should have just stayed gone.

A clone and someone who stuck out worse than a sore thumb were cut with good reason only for Nintendo to cave to their whiny fanboys and bring them back

I didn't even want them in SSB5

15 Sonic is still there

So the mascot of the company that had the biggest influence on Nintendo shouldn't be in the game? - Drawbox

16 The downloadable content

Everything about that last update was a giant Persona advertisement.

Which is going to all be overrated third party characters, I just know it

17 No Super Metroid Brinstar Stage

Can't we all have patience for future news? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

18 Corrin is still there, and no longer optional

Same as Bayonetta, don't play her if you don't want to. - Drawbox

19 Still too many third-party characters

And there are seriously people who only want it for the overrated, overpowered third-party characters. Some even saying they only want it for Joker, WHO IS DLC!

With more to come. Joker from Persona is definite, and Doomguy and Minecraft's Steve are all but 100% confirmed.

20 Still too many Fire Emblem characters

*Ahem* EVERYONE'S HERE! Deal with it - Brazencoronet17

21 Still too many Mario characters
22 No more Mii Fighters
23 No more Pac-Man

He is in the game. - Drawbox

Bandai Namco isn't involved this time, so their mascot won't be in.

24 Rosalina is still there
25 Possible risk of a poisonous competitive community.

I can hear them, the Melee'rs, the 4'ers. They're just going to complain how their "favorite" elements were changed and since Smash has an extremely active Smash community (excluding Brawl's and 64's), that's gonna taint the image of the game more. I honestly hope this game actually does well, and the community is only but a minor effect (like it should be.)

26 Shulk is still there, again!


27 Still too many clones

They are called echoes, and there are only seven, dang it. - Drawbox

28 Pichu is back
29 All anybody cares about is Snake's return

Nobody was cut from "Smash 4", whether that many people really missed them or not any and all characters cut from "Melee" and "Brawl" are back, there's still quite a few newcomers despite all that, but everybody's hung up on the fact that Snake's back.

Why does his presence suddenly make or break a Smash game nowadays? Curse you Kojima for constantly begging for his inclusion and curse you Sakurai for giving in!

Seems the response to every new character announcement is "yay someone else for Snake whale on" or "Snake can take him/her/them/xim out easily". Or replace Snake's name with Bayonetta's (why oh why did Nintendo bring him back and let her stay).

30 The "darker and edgier" turn it's taking

Did you not see all the reveal trailers where it now seems customary for a veteran character to get BRUTALLY KILLED?

Look what you started, Snake and B! tchonetta!

31 The story mode is a blatant "Infinity War" ripoff

At least the token "sole survivor" was a first party character. No sucking up to the third party developers here.

32 World of Light
33 Everything was revealed before release
34 No new Kirby characters
