For my best and worst, I’m mainly judging it based on how happy I was the character got added to the game and not how good they are in the game.
Best/Most Exciting/Favorite to Use: Pete
Pete is my favorite of the Mickey Mouse characters alongside Goofy mainly due to the fantastic and often hilarious voice work Jim Cummings provides to him, and I think he’s a character who more than earns his spot on the roster with being the primary enemy of Disney’s mascot, as well as the first Disney villain and oldest-made Disney character that the company still uses today and the average person would recognize. As a big Pete fan, I was ecstatic when he got added and thankfully, he’s also pretty good in the game with his high damage and reflect removal. Plus, his green skill and victory animations are two of my favorite animations in the game.
For the most part, I think this year was pretty solid in terms of either adding characters I like and/or characters that made sense to be in the game. Some honorable mentions for characters this year I also really liked are Bagheera, Kaa, Flik, Hopper, Pacha, and Quasimodo.
Worst/Most Surprising: Voyd
Let’s be honest, how many people were begging for this character to be added or really even remember this character in the first place? I’m sure she has her fans and I will give Voyd credit that she is an unusual character to see appear in the game, but that’s about all I can say. She adds an extra spot on the roster to a series that already has a ton of characters that I feel should have gone to a series with no/few characters, and I never really see anyone talk about her or use her in the game. Objectively, not a bad addition, but not one I’m a big fan of. Some other dishonorable mentions would be the Underminer, Duff Killigan, and Bellwether. The first two mostly fall into the same issues as her but are more memorable than her, and Bellwether is one of my least favorite Disney villains and not a character I personally enjoy.
