A new Reddit poll by u/ritmica now reveals who players think are the easiest characters to play in Smash Bros Ultimate. Of course, every player will be different, but here’s an idea of who are the easiest characters in Smash Ultimate.

Easiest Characters in Smash Bros Ultimate Results
The poll shows some interesting results. Overall, King K Rool, Cloud, and Ike are considered the easiest to play whereas Ice Climbers, Ken, Ryu, and Pokemon Trainer are the most difficult.
The pay-off for some characters is better than others. For instance, Peach and Daisy are hard characters to master, but they’re also top tier characters for those who learn them well. Characters like Ken, Ryu, and Pokemon Trainer are also more well-suited to specialists.
This gives some idea on who are the best Smash Bros Ultimate Characters for beginners. But with more characters buffs and nerfs likely to come, things could change with Version 3.0.0.
