    Title says it all, you don't have to rank all of them, you just have to give your two pence of which characters are stronger/weaker than others and why. All attributes will be taken into consideration (power, intelligence, speed, personality, strengths, weaknesses, wins, losses, e.t.c).

    For example, my nomination of the weakest smash character is Isabelle. She has no powers to speak of, and is known to be very pacifistic (or at least from what I know anyway, I've never played an Animal Crossing game), so that would put her at rank 71.

    For second, I nominate Pichu, simply because it's a very undeveloped Pokémon and hurts itself with its own electric attacks.

    For third, I vote Piranha Plant. While it does have fire and poison attacks, and some variants have spikes, they can easily be defeated by nothing more than a punch (as seen in Mario 64 and Galaxy)

    So with that in mind the rankings would be:

    #69 - Piranha Plant
    #70 - Pichu
    #71 - Isabelle

    I will post a ranking that will be subject to change/editing by me, the more people post their opinions of these characters. Will help me in this meaningless task?

    Here's the Ranking Thus Far:
    1. N/A
    2. Palutena
    3. Cloud
    4. Rosalina
    5. Bowser
    6. Donkey Kong
    7. Mario
    8. Luigi
    9. Wario
    10. Snake
    11. Little Mac
    12. Ivysaur
    13. Squirtle
    14. Jigglypuff
    15. R.O.B
    16. Olimar
    17. Alph
    18. Piranha Plant
    19. Wii Fit Trainer
    20. Duck Hunt Duo
    21. Pichu
    22. Mr. Game & Watch
    23. Villager
    24. Isabelle

    From what I can tell, this is from ingame canon and not from how good they are in Smash. If that's the case, these are some of the top characters that I would consider for strongest:
    Kirby, Palutena, Bayonetta, and Shulk (at the end of Xenoblade). Robin can be considered really strong if you consider what he/she actually is ingame as well (which I'd a major spoiler for FE) Spoiler below:
    Robin is Grima, an enormous dragon that ends the world in the future of Fire emblem Awakening

    I'm not too familiar with final fantasy 7, but Cloud takes down Sephiroth who is pretty much in God form. That has to count for something.

    Another thing to consider is putting Pokémon lower on the list as well. They only make other Pokémon faint, and killing isnt a thing in the anime or the games (the manga seems a little different, but I can't confirm).

    Duck Hunt, Villager, the Miis, Wii Fit Trainer, ROB, Dr. Mario, and Little Mac all belong beneath Piranha Plant and Pichu. The above characters have no canon abilities that are notable in the slightest (except little mac, that's up for interpretation as to how strong he is.)

    Hope this helps!

    Little Mac has beaten Mike Tyson and Donkey Kong in boxing matches. Bare in mind Donkey is strong enough to punch a moon out of orbit. Let's not forget Mac's Giga Mac form, which is more enhanced, and considering that piranha plants in certain games can be beaten in one punch, I'd imagine he could handle quite a good number of them.

    I agree with on Villager though. Where would you think he'd rank?

    I almost forgot another candidate for the weakest: Olimar.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he actually the size of a coin (some smash character's sizes aren't meant to scale their actual size)? Not to mention, the enemies he struggles against are more or less equal to a piranha plant. Where would that rank him?

    EDIT: As for R.O.B, I think we should put him above Olimar, considering he can hover and shoot lasers. There was also a giant R.O.B in the Subspace Emissary that was able to fend off and kill hundreds of pikmin that were climbing all over it, while on the over hand, it was taken out in one hit by Captain Falcon's falcon punch.

    So is this including any and all forms of a character? If so, add Sonic to the top of the list as well, his forms get super strong. Then you'd have to take into account all of Ganon's many forms, such as Calamity Ganon.

    Olimar controls Pikmin, though. While he is small, the Pikmin have unique capabilities that put him above the group of those who have no abilities. I'd say he is above that group, but about in the range of Pichu and Piranha Plant.

    As for Villager, maybe slightly above Isabelle. Villager has some handy tools that we never see Isabelle obtain. He still isn't a threat in the slightest, though.

    Also near the top should be Rosalina, with the ability to create entire universes. And I say put Duck Hunt around the same as Pichu, because it’s two characters, but neither has extraordinary abilities. As for Little Mac, if he can beat DK in a boxing match, he is either faster than DK, stronger than DK, or bulkier than DK. DK scales to Mario, who has the durability to survive Black Holes, the strength to lift entire castles and break stone on a regular basis, and the speed to dodge lasers. So I’d put all three, as well as anyone who can even hold their own against Mario, in the upper middle of the list.

    Does anybody else think Ganondorf is the most powerful smash character? He possesses the triforce of power, can only be killed by holy weapons (the Twilight Princess version survived being impaled with a weapon designed to kill him) and even if you do kill him, he'll just reincarnate as an alternate version of himself.

    EDIT: Also, I think Snake is stronger than Little Mac, given his combat and military experience.

    I agree that Ganondorf is higher up, not quite top though. Maybe top five. I disagree with the Snake comment though. Snake has lethal weapons and military experience sure, and against an ordinary boxer, that would be enough. But Little Mac beat DK. And DK easily beats Snake.
