As I have already mentioned, the Super Smash Bros. franchise has brought in a lot of playable characters for us to use for fighting. However, there are a few characters who don't really meet our expectations; some are either boring, annoying, have bad move sets, or are from a game series you're just not a fan of. And now, it's time to look at the 10 characters from Super Smash Bros. I find myself using the least. As usual, these are my opinions, and some of these characters you might like, I just thought I'd like to prepare you for that.
But first. here are a few dishonourable mentions:
Alph from Pikmin
Ryu from Street Fighter
Young Link from Zelda
Sheik from Zelda
Shulk from Xenoblade
And now, onto the actual list. Ready... GO!
10: The Koopalings from Super Mario - Oh my God, these guys are EVERYWHERE! First, they're all made playable characters in Mario Kart 8, when there are a lot more interesting Mario characters they could have added, and now, they all make playable characters in Super Smash Bros. too. WHY?! In fact, there are so many of them, that they're not even in the roster, they're just model swaps for Bowser Jr. Don't get me wrong, Bowser Jr. may be a bit of a brat, but at least he actually poses a challenge. These guys, however, are a joke that have long overstayed their welcome.
9: Wii Fit Trainer from Wii Fit - I never could get into the Wii Fit game, which is why this woman (or man, depends on the model swap) makes the list. He or she aren't really that impressive when using them in competitive play, and those annoying taunts do my head in. If you like using them, that's fine, but Wii Fit just isn't my cup of tea really.
8: The Ice Climbers - These two are super annoying, whether they're taunting, jumping or using their special moves, and the fact that they are two characters doesn't make sense. I mean, isn't two against one against the rules? This one thing I could never understand about them is when the blue Ice Climber dies, the pink one dies too, but when the pink one dies, the blue one still lives. WHAT AM I MISSING HERE?! Thank goodness they didn't make it to Super Smash Bros. 4 because I cannot stand how annoying they are.
7: Dr. Mario - He's just Mario in doctor's clothing, that's all he is, nothing unique about him at all, except instead of launching fireballs, he launches capsules. Yeah, like I can totally tell the difference. I really don't understand why they brought him back for Super Smash Bros. 4. And that theme music... Good God, that theme music!
6: Ganondorf from Zelda - I've probably already mentioned this before, but I am not a fan of the Zelda franchise, so it's no surprise I'm not a fan of Ganondorf. When he made his first appearance in Melee, his move set was just a copy of Captain Falcon's, who is way cooler if you ask me. Another thing I can't stand about Ganondorf is how ridiculously slow he is! Yeah, Bowser is slow too, but he's part turtle/part dragon, so you'd expect him to be slow. Ganondorf may be the "King of Evil", but he's not the kind of character I would use.
5: Wolf O'Donnell from Star Fox - I'm sure this guy is a great villain in the Star Fox series, but in Super Smash Bros., he's... well... kind of boring. His move set is rather bland, and he doesn't even catch fire when using his up special move like Fox and Falco do, even though it's called "Fire Wolf". Wolf may be great in Star Fox, but in Super Smash Bros., not so much.
4: Dark Pit from Kid Icarus - I get that Dark Pit is supposed to be some evil copy of Pit in the games, but his being a Smash character doesn't really work out for me, as he's only Pit wearing black clothes. He even has the same move set as the original Pit, so there's nothing original about him really, that's why I don't find myself playing as him.
3: Wario from Super Mario - He's my least favourite character from Mario, so there's no surprise he's one of my least favourite Super Smash Bros. characters too. Not only is he an annoying fat jerk, but his move set doesn't make sense to me either. I mean, eating people and farting, that's just gross! Wario even highly resembles Mr. Rude, my least favourite Mr. Men character, as well as Peter Griffin, especially when you're playing as him wearing white clothes. If you like him, that's fine, we're all allowed to have different opinions, but Wario, for me, no thanks.
2: Toon Link from Zelda - Oh, for God's sake, HE'S JUST YOUNG LINK 2.0, EXCEPT EVEN MORE ANNOYING! They're not even trying to hide the fact he's the same character, they even have the same move set! I mean, WHAT THE F#CKING
?! I'm sure he appears in some Zelda game, but since I don't play Zelda, I'll never know. However, Toon Link is not a character I like using in battle.
1: Zelda - I can't stand Zelda; I never liked her, even when I got Super Smash Bros. Melee for my birthday all those years ago. She even shares the same name as someone my father cheated on my mother with, and that's saying something. I even hate her screaming when she's flying in the air, or falling off the edge, she is a pain to be fighting against. I hate Zelda, I hate her move set, I hate fighting her, I hate her name, I hate all the Zelda games, I... I... I just hate Zelda!
And there you have, my top 10 least favourite Super Smash Bros. characters. Let me know in the comments what YOUR least favourite Super Smash Bros. characters are (as well as let me know if there's a character in this list you think I gave too much of a bad rep to) and until next time, hurue!
I own nothing.
