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 and other human players across the globe.
Most fighters have a "main," a primary character they generally use when fighting, and two or three more that they also enjoy using from time to time. In addition to 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 Super Smash online is fun, but it can also be incredibly annoying when you lose many times in a row, and it can be an even bigger blow to watch your hard-earned Global Smash Power (GSP) dwindle after a loss. Here are the top 10 most annoying Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters to fight.
This Pikmin star has extremely annoying spammy moves that suck the fun out of any Smash battle. Why does anyone even use this irritating, bald little monster as their main anymore?
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.
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.
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.
I love this Legend of Zelda antagonist, but he is way overpowered. Nothing is quite as annoying as 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.
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 edgewise.
Lucina is an echo fighter of Marth, but somehow, everything about the female version of this Fire Emblem character is irritating. Her sword's reach is long, making it difficult for bigger, short-range characters, such as Donkey Kong and Ganondorf to hit her. From her obnoxious edge guarding to her infuriating counter move, she's easily the most annoying character in Smash.
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?

I easily think that sonic is on annoying character in the roster because he deals fast damage is hard to hit and cannot knock out enemy’s fast like banjo and kazooie also I know that ness is annoying but that cannot be confused with hate. Overall a good list but I don’t know why Lucina is in first place, heck ness should be there

Yes, Lucina is so annoying!
Succy on May 07, 2020:
Holy shit. Finally someone who agrees with Lucina being the most annoying character in smash. I absolutely HATE going against her back in Smash 4 due to most of the players being counter-happy little shitheads. They're hell to go up against.
Poppy (author) from Enoshima, Japan on May 07, 2020:
Yeah, it's an annoying move!

I hate PK fire

I've fought some amazing Ganons! I challenge you to fight MY Ganon :D
OlidBLAK on April 13, 2020:
Ganon is literally trash though, he's mega easy to beat.
Poppy (author) from Enoshima, Japan on April 06, 2020:
Yeah, he's pretty annoying!

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.
Professor Thip-Thap on September 08, 2019:
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
