Here are 10 characters that already push the limits of fair and fun that, if they’re to return for a new round of bro smashing, could use an adjustment or two, or at least a limiter.
How did I know who the number one choice was? I mean he was banned from competitions and was recently announced so I would think that he'd be balanced. Some of these characters aren't even confirmed for the roster either.
IMO, the worries over broken characters due to custom move adjustments are a non-issue. I mean, think about it; you can't use custom moves in public online matches, only with friends, and with tournaments, you just KNOW that the competitive community is going to do EXHAUSTIVE AND INSANELY EXTENSIVE research into what will and won't be viable, if they even allow custom moves in tourneys at all. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of them use custom moves to readjust some vanilla characters to make them more fair, if they turn out to be another case of Meta-knightis. We just need to give the competitive community time to experiment and see what's viable before we go panicking over this and calling for nerfs and Fixes left and right.
10. Pit 9. Sonic 8. Fox/Falco 7. Ike 6. Pikachu 5. Ice Climbers... 4. Wolf 3. Sheik 2. Snake 1. Metaknight I disagree with most of this list. Pikachu is pretty hard to play. Fox / Falco are fast but have no final smash attack and are very weak in terms of attack. Do i even need to say anything for ice climbers? Ike is very slow so he is balanced. I agree wit the rest though. Honestly i consider Brawl to be a VERY balanced game.
Pit is pretty balanced. Especially in SSB4 with the gliding mechanic being cut.
I was just copying the list so people dont have to view it because Its only 1 per page
I don't play competitively, but I don't think any of those characters are OP except Meta Knight.
Sonic is not OP. His final smash was OP, though, and it is fixed in this new Smash Bros as the lenght of his final Smash was cut.
Melee > Project M > Brawl > N64 version. Having played the new one, it'll likely be somewhere between Melee and Brawl. Tier lists exist to show the different levels each characters are rated at. Sonic is not OP.
Reading the title I immediately thought Meta Knight as number 1.
