The Nostalgia Critic

A man who spends his time recapping bad movies of recent decades to show that the 80's and 90's weren't perfect.

Character Division: Celebrity

  • Boss Subtitles
  • Catch-Phrase: "Hello I'm the Nostalgia Critic."
  • Chuck Norris: Was summoned by his original Final Smash.
  • Flipping the Bird: Performs this gesture in his neutral air attack.
  • Large Ham
  • Limit Break: American Idol. It was later changed to Critical Rage.
  • Nerf: Received a few:
    • Down-B, "EXPLAIN!", doesn't increase in power with the Critic's damage. The damaging flames resulting from this attack last for only 2 seconds, instead of 4.
    • In his up-B, "Mako Miracle", Mako only damages an opponent when the Critic lets him go.
    • American Idol does only 50% per touch, although Chincherrinas states that it's still broken as hell. It was later changed to Critical Rage, nerfing him further.
  • The Power of Hate: His rage powers his explosion attacks.
  • The Rival: To AVGN
  • Sarcastic Clapping: His losing animation.
  • Shock and Awe: His side smash has him shoot lightning from his hands.
  • Standard Status Effects: ELEPHANT! can cause effects similar to Luigi's Negative Zone. It even breaks shields.

  • Trigger Happy: His standard B move.


The proud and mighty king of Sparta, out to keep the Persians from conquering his city.

Character Division: YouTube Poop

Dr. Robotnik

Sonic the Hedgehog's arch nemesis, only a sillier version of himself. He floats around in his Eggmobile.

Character Division: YouTube Poop

The Irate Gamer

The most hated internet reviewer of all. Everything he does is an inferior copy of someone else's, or just something that backfires on him. Usually both.

Character Division: Celebrity

  • Affectionate Parody: Of joke characters, maybe. Chincherrinas said this on the moveset video:
    "You guys need to stop being so unidimensional and start seeing this in another way: joke characters are awesome. Dan is my main in SFIV."
  • Amusing Injuries: All over the place.
  • Boss Subtitles
  • Butt-Monkey: The man can't even taunt or go through victory animation without something happening to him.
  • Ditto Fighter: His moveset consists of cloned versions of official Smash characters' special moves, but with the twist that they're all hilariously underpowered versions of the originals. Fitting, given the accusations that Bores' reviewing style is similar to the Nerd's.
    • Plagiarism is basically a weaker version of Kirby's Inhale, as mentioned below.
    • Escape Bike is Wario's Wario Bike that falls over when it crashes into anything, along with damaging himself.
    • It's hard to say what The Same Explosion Effect is a clone of, but it's close to Fire Fox/Bird/Wolf that barely travels any distance and damages himself.
    • Convenient Mirror is Pit's Mirror Shield that reflects projectiles at half the speed and power and breaks apart when struck with a direct attack.
    • The Borean is Peach's Peach Blossom if it lacked the healing peaches and if it was cancellable.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: "Somebody call 9-1-1, because I was ROB-bed!"
  • Joke Character: Chincherrinas confirmed that he only made the Irate Gamer a joke character due to his liking towards them.
    • Lethal Joke Character: It's hinted that his charged attack where he transforms into a bus, while being laggy and short in reach, it's actually very powerful.
  • Limit Break: The Borean
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Only reflects projectiles, and his shield can break by a physical attack, which will not regenerate until he loses a stock.
  • Power Copying: With a twist. Like Kirby, he copies the standard B move of other characters, but unlike Kirby, he executes them in a very underpowered manner (Ex: AVGN fires F-Bombs that travel straight, while IG shoots a firecracker that travels in a small arc).
  • Special Effect Failure: Invoked and played for laughs. His recovery move involves propelling himself in the air with a stock explosion effect.
  • Standard Status Effects: Like with Mama Luigi's Side B, Gamer's Final Smash puts people to sleep (naturally to fill in the Take That! nature of his moveset video, the Final Smash is a showing of one of Gamer's videos).
  • Weak, but Skilled: In the words of Otacon "He may be a weakling, but he's got a powerful ability that has made him an internet force to be reckoned with".

Claude Frollo

A perverted and arrogant judge from Paris who is simultaneously religious and Satanic. He's mastered power over fire.

Character Division: YouTube Poop

Pressing A on a pic will enable player absorption, but if pic is not in any sort of cool-down. The absorption of a player will cause that player to be ejected from one of the other two paintings, 3 sec. before pic can absorb anything. The absorption of a player will also remove effect from that pic, wait 1 sec. before the other 2 pics can be selected to absorb players, 3 sec. for previous pic."
  • Portal Picture: Fisherman
  • Security Cling: In one of her winning poses she clings unto Garry.
  • The Stoic: Doesn't speak much, even for a little kid.

Best Hercules

There would be a description here, but he...really doesn't have the time right now. He is a rather..odd version of Hercules from a particularly So Bad, It's Good Hercules animated film.

Character Division: Cult

  • Annoying Arrows: Annoying for him in this case. The arrows he fires travel slowly in an odd arc.
  • Attack Reflector: His down special pulls out a mirror, which reflects projectiles at thrice the speed and strength. The only catch to this is that it takes a really long time to get it out.

  • Butt-Monkey
  • Fake Ultimate Hero

  • In a Single Bound: He leaps high in the air during his up special move. After that, he celebrates for two seconds.

    • Lethal Joke Character: Chincherrinas hinted in the Facebook Page that there's a way to make him playable and that he'd show it if Best Herc won the poll for the next Classic Mode.
  • Limit Break: OK Charge!
  • Running Gag: Celebrating.

  • Badass in a Nice Suit
  • Bilingual Bonus: All his voice clips are in Spanish.

Don Ramón

A very lazy man who takes on any odd job he can to pay his perpetual debt of 14-months of rent. Being the victim of so much slapstick has prepared him for the Lawl warriors.

Toon Dr. Wily

The main villain of the Mega Man series, only the hammier animated version.

Character Division: YouTube Poop

  • Boss Subtitles
  • Fragile Speedster: She's very fast, but she's fairly lightweight.

  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Currently, she and Kneesocks are the only female characters who are affected by horniness.

"Weird Al" Yankovic

The famous musician that's known for writing parodies of popular songs.

Character Division: Celebrity

  • Bus Fu: Subverted—his down B summons a bus, but it doesn't damage anyone while approaching to Al. Instead, it traps opponents inside while Al plays his accordion to unleash the bus's atmosphere, damaging them.
