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

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

Is... someone a Mortal Kombat fanboy?...

3 Horrible Newcomers, but only one good newcomer

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?

Inklings are one of the best newcomers, but some newcomers stink. Spring Man is the worst, Ever Oasis is an useless anime JRPG, Xenoblade Chronicles is for teens, Cash Banooca is made by Sony along with Cloud and Kratos, and Bomberman is the new Snake. If you want a better newcomer, go play as the Inklings. - Neinwott

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

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

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

Had it been rated T, Mai would have been in Terry's stage and gotten a Spirit battle. You know, instead of people wonder how or defending that *Bayonetta* "is for good boys and girls of all ages" yet Mai isn't.

Brawl was rated T. Why did/do all subsequent games have to be rated E10 (the "good boys and girls" rating apparently)? Furthermore, why are they still rated E10 when Bayonetta is in there (still effectively promoting her uncensored M RATED games, if you're going to throw that "she was toned down" argument)?

Yet Bayonetta is still there...

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

8 Bayonetta is still there, and no longer optional

And people seem to think they can get away with anything and everything simply because she's there

The recent decision to COMEPLETLY disallow Mai Shiranui (read: no Spirit, no cameo on Terry Bogard's stage, nothing), who's pretty tame compared to Bayo, just makes this worse.

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.

9 74 characters, and 66 need to be unlocked

Actually, as of this writing, there are 80 characters. 66 of which need to be unlocked and 6 of which are "unlocked" by paying real money.

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 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

The Newcomers

? Character choices for Spirit Battles

That is, the characters used to represent certain Spirits. Lerna (of the Nintendo Labo "Professor Riggs & Plaise & Lerna" Spirit) should have been Zero Suit Samus and Kammy Koopa should have been female Robin instead of both being Bayonetta. Iori Yagami should have been male Robin instead of Wolf. Ken or even Terry should have been Andy Bogard, not Fox. Incineroar and a shrunken Incineroar should have been the Sabrecub and Sabrecat, not Pikachu and Pichu.

? Still too many Pokemon

The Contenders

11 Undertale representation

A MII COSTUME should not overshadow the return of a much-requested game mode, the newest ACTUAL character (Banjo & Kazooie), or the announcement of the next actual character (Terry Bogard of "King of Fighters" fame). But because the costume in question is Sans, it does. Also nigh impossible to play online without encountering a "Mii Gunner" who turns out to be in the Sans outfit. UGH!

Now *another* overrated "indie" game with a toxic fandom is getting a Mii costume and song, *and* it's overshadowing the actual new character yet again!

And now Cuphead representation *groans*

It's a Mii costume, but still.

12 Boring trailers

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

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

One trailer. - Drawbox

13 Cloud is still there, and no longer optional

Terra should have been the Final Fantasy representative

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

14 Sonic is still there

And so are his fanboys

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

15 The custom stages and Mii Fighters some people make

Apparently people think that just because Bayonetta is in, they can get away with x-rated stages

You mean the sheer number of Sans Miis (including the Sans mask with other outfits), so many stages being recreations of Undertale locations, and overuse of Meglovania on custom stages whether they represent Undertale or not?

Many of those are hardly "for good boys and girls of all ages", and Nintendo is doing a bad job of enforcing that

So many memes and perverted

16 Being penalized for disconnecting "in the middle of a battle" online, even if it wasn't your fault or all that was left was the victory screen

So you got a bad connected. Still punished as if you had rage quit. You've already lost all your stocks or stamina, or it's sudden death and you're clearly not part of it. Clearly the battle is already over on your end. Still punished for quitting "mid-battle". My online suspension time is up to three hours because of this BS.

17 Rock Howard

He's not a Spirit YET, the other comment means. Dragon Quest gotta new Spirit long after Hero's release, so...

Mai's way more iconic than he'll ever be, yet he got into Smash Ultimate. At least he's not a Mii costume or spirit, but still.

This overrated Gary Stu who ruined "Fatal Fury", "King of Fighters", and "Capcom vs SNK" gets yet another opportunity to remind everyone he exists and we all must pretend he's "awesome". Even if it is just a background character.

99 out of 100 times I play on KoF Stadium, I see this abomination! And he's unkillable!

18 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

19 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).

20 Mii Fighters are now allowed in all online modes

Which equals a scary amount of Mii Gunners online just because of the Sans skin.

Online is going to be Cuphead H-e-double-hockey-sticks

Not just Sans, but also Hitler and Al-Qaeda terrorists. Reminders of why Miis hadn't been allowed in Sm4sh.

21 Krystal is just an Assist Trophy

As much as everyone wanted her and how hated Assist Trophies are, I'm shocked this is at 5he very bottom.

22 Still too many third-party characters

The Fighter's Pass has ben literally nothing *but* 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.

23 Not enough new female characters

There were four, or three and a half depending on how you look at: Daisy, Isabelle, Dark Samus, and Inkling (who like Robin or Villager can be either gender, though in Inkling's case the default is female). Still, I don't concern myself with "representation" or "diversity", so of anything this is the lreast of Smash Ultimate's problems.

With that "for good boys and girls" comment, what other female characters CAN they put in?

So far the only female DLC character we've gotten is Kazooie, and she's not even her own character.

Okay, what Tumblrina feminist put this here?

24 Wolf and Snake are back

Didn't miss either of them

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

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

I didn't even want them in SSB5

25 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.

26 No more Mii Fighters

If only it were true

27 Pichu is back
28 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

29 No Super Metroid Brinstar Stage

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

30 Corrin is still there, and no longer optional

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

31 Still too many Fire Emblem characters

And guess what DLC 5 is

32 Still too many Mario characters
33 No more Pac-Man

He is in the game. - Drawbox

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

34 Rosalina is still there
35 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.)

36 Shulk is still there, again!


37 Still too many clones

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

38 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!

39 World of Light
40 Everything was revealed before release
41 No new Kirby characters
42 Not enough Sonic characters
