A character, in the artistic point of view, refers to the person or other being that is part of a narrative work. There exists numerous characters in the McLeodGaming media, filling different roles according to the work play.
In the Super Smash Flash series, characters can be sorted into playable and non-playable, which distinguishes whether characters can be used or not.
A playable character is the one whose actions are directly controlled by a player. They can be divided into starter and unlockable, which distinguishes whether characters can be played right away, or whether they need to be unlocked.
This is a list of the playable characters in the Super Smash Flash series. Shaded cells denote unlockable characters.
These characters were part of the original roster for Super Smash Flash 2 that was scrapped during the game's development reboot. While some of them were removed entirely from the roster, it is unknown whether the rest will be in the game, which means this list should absolutely not be taken as a confirmation of their status as playable characters.
The following are considered non-playable characters, those who cannot be controlled by the player. These include boss characters (which also includes mini-bosses) and enemy teams. Item characters, characters released from Assist Trophies, Pokémon released from Poké Balls, regular enemies, and background characters also fit in this category but due to they coming in great numbers, they are not listed below. As many elements for SSF2 are still unknown, some could have been scrapped long ago, even if there was a confirmation in the past.
