Super Smash Brothers is one of the most popular video game franchises of all time, and it’s not hard to see why. The fighter game involves characters from multiple iconic franchises.

Players from all levels of experience can have a great time with the game. Newer players can enjoy it chaotically, but it can also be very technical and skillful when veterans compete.

So, let’s take a look at the four most enjoyable characters to play as in Super Smash Brothers. As a reminder, this list is completely subjective

King Dedede, at first glance, may not seem like a super enjoyable character to use, but this heavyweight penguin can be a blast. His hammer is extremely satisfying to use, and some of his attacks utilize his massive body to inflict major damage on his foes.

His abilities allow him to swallow projectiles and simply spit them back out at his foes. He can also launch spiky projectiles of his own that hit his targets with a satisfying thud. He’s easy to use, fun, and not a bad option at all to take into games online.

#3 Most Fun Super Smash Fighter to Play: Incineroar

Incineroar, one of the starter Pokémon from Sun and Moon, is an absolute delight to play. He is a newer addition to the franchise, added in Ultimate, but it’s a perfect fit. They may not be the most versatile fighter but mashing together combos with them feels amazing.

Incineroar lives up to his title in Super Smash Brothers. It often acts like a villain from the WWE. With a flashy move set, it truly feels like you’re roleplaying as a wrestler when using Incineroar.

#2 Most Fun Super Smash Fighter to Play: Solid Snake

Solid Snake, the legendary character from the Metal Gear series, may, at first glance may seem like more of a tactical, calculated fighter. However, he is one of the most satisfying characters to play with on all skill levels. His massive arsenal of explosives and various weapons can demolish foes from all distances.

The best part about Snake is that playing well with him often empowers the player. Whether it’s setting an explosive trap, or using a rocket launcher from afar, or just straight up bombarding.

#1 Most Fun Super Smash Fighter to Play: Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong, one of the oldest video characters of all time, also happens to be insanely fun in Super Smash Brothers. Is he the best choice? Probably not. But if you’re just looking to have a good time? You’d be hard-pressed to find a character more fun than Donkey Kong.

So many of his attacks and movements just radiate entertainment. Whether it’s rolling towards his opponents, headbutting them straight into the ground, or his simple taunts, it’s just so enjoyable.

And some of the ways he can finish opponents are truly wild. For instance, Donkey Kong’s grab attack allows him to pick up and carry opponents around for a short while. It’s possible to carry them right off the map or chuck them at the bottom stage for some hilarious knockouts.

New or casual players just looking to have a good time shouldn’t hesitate to select Donkey Kong.
