Millions of players around the world are enjoying Nintendo's fast-paced fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch. With over 70 characters to choose from and a new global ranking system, veterans and new players alike are challenging tough CPUs or other human players across the globe.

Most fighters have a "main," a character they generally use when fighting, and two or three more that they enjoy using. As well as understanding your main's fighting style, speed, hit power, and other features, it's also important to understand other characters' strengths and weaknesses so you know how to beat them.


Playing online is fun, but it can also be incredibly annoying when you lose many times in a row, and an even bigger blow when you watch your hard-earned Global Smash Power (GSP) dwindle after a loss. Here are the top ten most annoying Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters to fight.

10. Pichu

This adorable Pokémon is a menace in Ultimate. His small stature makes him difficult to hit and he has a deadly grab-throw upwards-down B combo that wrecks you if you're at a high handicap.

Pichu used to be famous for how bad he was, but he's been seriously upgraded in the newest Smash installment. Does this look like the face of mercy?


9. Isabelle

This Animal Crossing character may be a picture of all that is pure in this world in her original game, but she can dominate the field in Smash with her irritating fishing hook and rocket bomb traps. You're lucky to get a hit in when Isabelle is laying ambushes and whipping you with her rod.


8. Inkling

This character from Splatoon is just obnoxious. She can throw bombs, roll you into the ground, and just be a general pain in the butt. The good news is that you can avoid most of Inkling's attacks by remaining aerial, but it's still irritating to be splashed with paint.


7. Snake

Snake, from the Metal Gear games, has homing bombs that can be deadly. Not only that, but he can move fast and ruin you while you're trying to hit him. I always groan when I find I'm about to fight Snake.


6. Ganondorf

I love this Legend of Zelda antagonist, but he is way overpowered. Nothing quite beats the level of annoying than dodging, jumping, and getting up his handicap with clever, quick attacks only for him to smack you into oblivion in four hits or fewer.


5. Captain Falcon

With the same moves as Ganondorf except faster moving, Captain Falcon has been an annoying character since the very first Super Smash Bros. game on Nintendo 64. Maybe it's his obnoxious voice, outfit, or falcon punch, but Captain Falcon will always be one of the series' most irritating dudes.


4. Ness

Also a character to have been part of the Super Smash selection since the original installment, this EarthBound character's voice, appearance, and moveset are enough to fly anybody into a rage. Every player has, at least once, suffered from Ness's incessant "PK-fire" attack.


3. Duck Hunt

I don't even fully understand this duck-and-dog combo, but I know I dread every battle with it. If there's any character that can annoyingly spam you with projectiles, Duck Hunt is it.


2. Mii Gunner

For some reason, Nintendo has now allowed players to let their Miis, famously from the Wii U console, to play as Smash characters, too, as a variety of different fighter types. The gunner, by far, is the most annoying. With the Mii's quick recoveries and several types of projectiles from grenades to a Samus-esque powered up blaster, you'll often end up spending the entire battle trying to dodge without getting an attack in edgeways.


1. Richter

This guy is new to the Smash series and easily the most annoying character of all time. Not only are most of his weapons projectiles, but they throw at different angles, making them almost impossible to be able to dodge. He can own the entire battlefield with his never-ending shurikens and throwing axes, making him incredibly difficult to beat.


Though Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is fun, it can be awful to be beaten by cheap combos and incessant projectiles. Which character do you feel is the most annoying to fight in this game?

Questions & Answers

  • Don't you hate the Young Link and Toon Link projectile spammers?

    I don’t think they’re annoying because their projectiles are easy to dodge and predict.

  • Do you think the Samus/Dark Samus grab combo is a cheap combo?

    Combos are the key to winning, and none of them are cheap if they work!

  • Have you heard of Daisy from Super Smash Brothers? I think she is annoying.

    Yes, I agree, she's pretty irritating! The noises she makes are annoying for sure.

  • Do you think Palutena is annoying? How much?

    Some of her moves are annoying, such as explosive flame, but I don’t find her annoying. She’s very beautiful and fun!

      You need to do some research on how to beat Bayonetta and avoid her combos (her combos are insane). I always struggle against Roy and Ness, so I completely understand where you're coming from.

      I dislike Bayonetta a lot because she is somewhat overpowered and lots of people online use her (at least in my experience). It's irritating to have to play against the same character over and over again. There is no way for me to improve against others.

      Hi Jason, they're annoying because they're annoying to play against. For example, getting PK-fire spammed is annoying whether you respect strong players or not.

      One thing I am finding hard to understand here is the use of "annoying". I understand your list is subjective, but are you saying you do not like these characters? Or is it simply that you have a hard time being them in online battles?

      Because honestly, I do not find any of the characters "annoying" in this sense. I enjoy them all, and I appreciate the skill and strategy of the players who work to perfect the play of their mains. The difference between a newb Richter and a pro Richter, for example, is like night and day. I can easily appreciate getting wrecked by someone who knocks my teeth out and hands them back to me. haha.

      But when it comes to newbies just spamming certain attacks over and over again, I point the finger at myself. If I cannot beat these players, then I am a scrub and need to retire from Smash. haha
