** Several others have just plain weird movesets. Mr VideoGame/GameAndWatch fights by pulling out random equipment from his own games, pulling out things like turtles, flags, buckets, keys and other mundane things. [[VideoGame/WarioLand Wario]] fights using a random assortment of wacky attacks and odd abilities, such as chewing on the opponent, punching them in the groin and ''farting''. Bowser Jr. fights in a literal clown car that's equipped with weapons like drills, wrecking balls, a cannon, a ''fork'', and the clown face sticking its tongue out. And then there's Duck Hunt, a trio composed by the dog, a duck, and the unseen hunter from ''VideoGame/DuckHunt'' who use exploding tin cans and clay targets, can summon 8-bit cowboys from thin air to fire at their opponents, and whose [[LimitBreak Final Smash]] involves their opponents getting caught in the middle of an 8-bit shoot-out between cowboys and gangsters.

A fighter who utilized comedy as a weapon. They may look wacky, have cartoonish attacks, and a goofy voice, but otherwise they play as well as any other fighter. This is not the JokeCharacter, as those are characters that are purposefully bad, nor is it the LethalJokeCharacter, which is when a Joke Character ultimately has some hidden utility. This is simply a character that just looks and acts silly without being a bad character.

** Luigi started out as a MovesetClone of Mario, but as DivergentCharacterEvolution took hold several of his attacks were redesigned or replaced to look silly. For instance, both Mario and Luigi have a jumping punch attack, but Luigi now lands on his head afterward.

* ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' has some pretty goofy cast members along side all the {{Badass}}es. VideoGame/FatPrincess (seen above smacking [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]]) is an obese DanceBattler that runs people down in her search for cake, [[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper PaRappa]] deflects projectiles by swinging his skateboard at them and raps for his ultimate attack, [[VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet Sackboy]] controls space by imagining a fan into existence, which he then uses to blow cake and jam at his enemies and Toro copies half the FightingGame pantheon's moves while replacing their KiAttacks with mochi rice cakes.

* ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament'' is a FightingGame using ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', so this would be expected... except said role is filled by probably the biggest UnexpectedCharacter: ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Chandelure]]'', the Luring Pokémon. It's not that strange ([[OurMonstersAreWeird by Pokémon standards mind you]), but it's still a ''chandelier'' in a FightingGame that isn't even a "unorthodox" type of game like ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''. Said 'mon is also considered one of the best characters in the roster, and in the hands of a skilled player veers on GameBreaker status.

* The Dancing Banana from ''VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}''. It looks and sounds like a joke character, but actually plays like a normal one. He does use [[EdibleAmmunition bananas as weapons]] while spouting "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" noises, though.
** There's also Dee Bee Kaw, who looks funny and utilizes some really silly attacks, but he also plays like a normal character and a pretty powerful one at that.

* The Blacker Baron of ''Main/AnarchyReigns'' is funny and prone to being the ButtMonkey, and likes to work in Michael Jackson dancing for some of his attacks. He also possesses one of the [[{{Shoryuken}} most damaging attacks in the entire game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MegaManPoweredUp'' lets you unlock RobotMaid Roll as a playable character. She fights using a broom, which you can swap out for even sillier melee weapons via DownloadableContent. Despite her silly weapons, the net results is that she plays very much like Zero does from ''VideoGame/MegamanX4'' onwards.

* [[NinjaMaid Shannon]] from ''[[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Ougon Musoukyouku]]'' is half this half BarrierWarrior, with her basic attacks involving attacking with cleaning implements, or doing things like [[{{Dojikko}} dropping a tea-set on the enemy after tripping]], and girly slaps and pushes, going so far as to even call [[TheBeastmaster seagulls]] to help her in combat. She's still as effective as any other character, and doesn't have any problem in going against [[WitchSpecies the witches]] or their [[{{Familiar}} familiars]].
