When it comes to childhood memories, one of your favorites may be duking it out with our favourite Nintendo characters. Sure, we all had our favorite individual games such as Super Mario 64, but when the Nintendo 64 first released Super Smash Bros, we finally had a chance to pit the likes of Mario, Link and Pikachu against one another! Finally there was a level playing field to see who really was the system's most iconic figure. Not to mention it also bred a competitive nature in gamers who were supposed to be more passive, childish and relaxed compared to their PlayStation counterparts. Despite the lack of blood and gore, here was a title that charged the competitive juices and asked us to be ruthless! Nothing settled an argument better than a duel, but who are the most powerful characters in the series?
Deciding on a top ten was difficult, but that's the fun of the game. Power is a variable that can be in the eye of the beholder. The characters here are powerful in different ways, with traits that make them specifically rare in their ability to smash an opponent, defend arrays of attacks, recover from certain death and speed across the screen without sacrificing themselves. We all have our favourites but did yours make the cut?
9 Donkey Kong
4 Meta Knight
3 Captain Falcon
Link's arch nemesis uses the same physics as Captain Falcon, yet has a raw power that is unmatched in the series. A worthy holder of number 1 spot, the antagonist of The Legend of Zelda may be slow but his reach and strength make him a character to fear when chosen by opposition. Ganondorf's 'Warlock Punch' alone demonstrates great K.O. potential, and his aerial moves are ranked higher than any other selectable fighter (most capable of sending a player off the screen). Here is a heavyweight if ever there was a true claim to the title, a stylish and cunning villain that thrives on any challenge. The best method to conquering this mad man is to keep your distance, wear him down with projectiles and then risk getting close...good luck.
