My rankings #6 Super Smash Bros newcomers

Post by Gameguy1996 on Thu Nov 05, 2015 2:59 am

7 months ago I rated the Super Smash Bros Melee roster. This time I will only focus on the newcomers since it would drag on if I added the past characters again.

#15



Special moves

Neutral: Blaster 
Side: Wolf Flash
Up: Fire Wolf
Down: Reflector

By the time Wolf got unlocked I was pretty much done playing Brawl. Even though his specials where like Fox and Falco his Smash attacks where quite different and movement is taken from other fighters. If he returns to Smash 4 as DLC I hope at least one of his special moves are changed so that he stands out more.

Wolf is a pretty boring character, mostly a clone of Fox and Falco. I mean I like him as a character in Star Fox, but in Smash he was pretty pointless, and I'm glad they removed him in Smash 4.

Special Moves
Neutral: Homing Attack
Side: Spin Dash
Up: Spring Jump
Down Spin Charge:

Sonic had pretty bad KO power in Brawl and all his attacks feel the same for the most part. He was also a character I could never control right.

Special Moves

Standard: Pikmin Pluck
Side: Pikmin Throw
Up: Pikmin Chain
Down: Pikmin Order

I enjoyed the Pikmin series quite a bit. I could never play as Pikmin & Olimar the right way though since you always have to time the Pikmin just right.

Special moves

Neutral: Peanut Popgun
Side: Monkey Flip
Up: Rocketbarrel Boost
Down: Banana Peel

Even though Diddy is one of the best characters in Smash I could never use him right. His special moves also take a bit of skill to use.

Special moves

Neutral: Chomp
Side: Wario Bike
Up: Corkscrew
Down: Wario Waft

Even though Wario is based on his wacky WarioWare character I think it's for the best. His moves are some of the most unique in Brawl and if he was based more on Wario Land I feel like he would be at least a semi clone of Mario. I could never use most of his special moves outside of Wario Bike and Corkscrew though so he gets the number 11 spot.

Not a huge fan of any of the characters posted so far really. :p Although I do use Olimar occasionally in Smash 4, and he's certainly a more interesting character with the Pikmin.

Special moves

Neutral: Aura Sphere
Side: Force Palm
Up: Extreme Speed
Down: Double Team 

I enjoyed the ability Lucario brought to Smash Bros. He's the only character that gets stronger the more he gets damaged and it was nice to see Pokemon get a character from the 4th Gen. I could never use Lucario that while in Brawl though since his aura was week and his moves did not hit that hard.

#9



Special Moves
Neutral: Hero's Bow
Side: Boomerang
Up: Spin Attack
Down: Bomb

All though Toon Link is a semi clone he is less of a clone then Young Link. Toon's attacks don't do as much as regular Link and he's faster then him. I still like using the regular Link at the end of the day though.

Time for double updates since I have not updated in a few days.

#8



Special Moves

Neutral: Robo Beam
Side: Arm Rotor
Up: Robo Burner
Down: Gyro

R.O.B. is a character a never used much in Brawl even though he can be deadly if used right. I 
enjoyed him more for his role in Subspace really.

#7



Special moves 

Neutral: PK Freeze
Side: PK Fire
UP: PK Thunder
Down: PK Magnet 

Even though Lucas is a Ness clone in some ways he stands out in his own way. His Smash attacks are quite fun to use and he just feels more fun than Ness in Brawl at least.

#6


Special Moves

Neutral: Hand Grenade
Side: Remote Missile
Up: Cypher
Down: Grenade Launcher

Even though I never though Snake fit in that while. His moveset was pretty fun to use and he was one of the very few fun Brawl newcomers to use for matches. I'm fine with him being a one time character though.

#5



Special Moves

Neutral: Palutena's Arrow 
Side: Angel Wing
Up: Wings of Icarus
Down: Mirror Shield

I'm not sure how I feel about Pit in Brawl. On one hand his voice clips are pretty bad and his moveset could be better. On the the other hand they based him off of an old school game and he played a pretty big role in Subspace.

#4


Special Moves

Neutral: Mach Tornado
Side: Drill Rush
Up: Shuttle Loop
Down: Dimensional Cape

I never did get why people thought Meta Knight was so broken back in Brawl. I just used him since he was fun to use and he was way more enjoyable then King Dedede.

#3



You know Pokemon Trainer was a good idea on paper that just never worked out. It just sucks how the Pokemon run out of energy fast. I did enjoy using Squirtle and Charizard quite a bit though.

Love Pit and Meta Knight! They're some of my favorite character additions, not only because I love them as characters in their respective games, but they both have (oddly similar) cool movesets that are fun to pull off and are powerful.

I'm not entirely sure why Meta Knight is considered broken in Brawl but I think it has to do with his recovery, it seems a little ridiculous that he could go under stages with ease and recover from many situations off stage. Most things about him are good but I think he lacks some KO power, I haven't played Brawl in about a year so that's just from memory. I never followed competitive Brawl either but I do know many considered him broken. He feels significantly weaker in Smash 4 but I enjoy using him in that game.

Good list so far. My favorite Brawl newcomers were Toon Link, Wolf, R.O.B, and Meta Knight.
