Luigi

Everything about Luigi in Super Smash Bros. makes him out to be the doofiest character ever created. I mean, look at that pose. He'd fall over if it weren't for that hunk of plastic cradling his nether-regions. Still, you can't help but love the guy.

Captain Falcon

Captain Falcon may not have had a proper racing game of his own in over ten years, but he's made a name for himself in the fight club circuits with his signature Falcon Punches and Kicks. Hey, at least he gets to unlock a costume in Mario Kart 8. That's something, right?

Pit

It seems a bit silly that someone with wings can't actually fly without the special power granted by Palutena, but that's just how life goes for Pit. Oh, and your Pit amiibo won't be able to fly either, no matter how many times you chuck him off a building.

Little Mac

At 5' 7'' and 107 pounds (yikes!), Little Mac's diminutive stature may not seem like it's enough to take on the likes of Bowser and Ganondorf, let alone his own rivals like Soda Popinski and Bald Bull. But what he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in moxie, as he's able to put the hurt on even the toughest of foes.
