Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is here! The game may have only been released on October 5, but players are already weighing up which character goes where on their tier lists. However, whilst players are divided as to which fighters take the top spot, there's one thing they all agree on... Patrick Star sucks.

The dim-witted starfish may be one of the most loved characters in the classic TV series, but it seems that this SpongeBob SquarePants icon just doesn't match up to the rest of the fighters in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

Why Do Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Players Hate Patrick?

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl players have already been ranking their favourite characters based on their moves and mechanics. Whereas his fellow Bikini Bottom pals, SpongeBob and Sandy Cheeks, have been averaging in the middle of the charts, sadly, Patrick Star, is often the one who is sat alone at the bottom. It's nothing to do with the character himself it seems, but compared to the rest of the fighters on offer, Patrick just doesn't have the best combat skills to square-up to his opponents. 

Three All-Star players, Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma, Adam “Armada” Lindgren and, William “Leffen” Hjelte all claimed Patrick is the "worst" character of the game. James "VoiD" Makekau-Tyson, went as far to say "with the utmost certainty" that "Patrick is the suck champ" of the game. Whereas Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman had some more positive things to say about Patrick, the squishy starfish was, again, placed at the bottom of his list. 

Hungrybox went on to explain why: "Maybe he's not bad but compared to everyone else he just sucks". Armada, also, said that though Patrick's 'Bowser-Side' was cool "he was very slow [and] seemed to have the worst punishes in the game". Leffen said Patrick is "almost intentionally a meme". This would make sense as the game's developer, GameMill Entertainment have already shown it can be meta by including a SpongeBob meme in All-Star. 

Which Is The Best Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Fighter?

So far, players have been pretty sure that Patrick Star is the "worst" character of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. However, which fighter takes the crown for the best of the Nickelodeon best is still up for debate. Hungrybox claims: "Catdog and April are the two best characters in the game". Whereas, Armada said that Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a contender for the top spot. Of course, this could change as new characters could be made available in future downloads.

Nickelodeon fans have been hyped-up for All-Star ever since its announcement in July, 2021. You can check out the list of all the playable characters of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, as of writing, here

Poor Patrick Star. He may play a "mean belly" but that's no match for Leonardo's fast flurry of attacks. Although, he will always be the king of jellyfishing and Krabby Patty eating in our eyes.
