I can use all the characters with ease.

But like everyone else, I had problems with Ness and Lucas. But I used them a lot so I eventually got use to them. Now they're easier to use and that sometimes gives me the upper hand. =]

I would say Snake. He's definitely one of the best characters, but is hard to get a handle on. Most characters are easy to adapt to because their moves are similar in many respects, but Snake is pretty unique. He's either really good or really bad depending on your experience using him, you can't just rely on your raw ability.

I'm going with Pit, he's hard to control sometimes, to be honest.

Generally, I believe the characters that are considered to have the sharpest learning curve are:

Snake because you need to keep control of the field very well and stop attackers with your myraid of projectiles. Lots of ATs too...

Ness and Lucas because they have a huge amount of ATs, need to avoid grabs like the plague, and you need excellent control of PK Thunder(more important with Ness).

Fox is also up there to play at a high level because he needs to be played faster than any other character. He also suffers from small hitboxes and needs to avoid grabs well and that requires good measurements on the player's part.

Ice Climbers because of desyncing and chaingrab stuff.

Diddy because...Well, I'm not sure. Many people say he's hard to play but I don't know why.

I find all the heavy characters to be rather difficult to use, with the exception of Donkey Kong, but he doesn't even really play like a heavy.
And of course Snake has to be in this list because his moves break the bounds of traditional SSB play.

I agree with Avocado. I can't use heavy characters like Ike because they're just so unbelievably slow. People can easily grab you before you do a simple smash attack.

Relying on smashes never works with Ike. He's all about using his aerials, f-tilt, and jabs with good spacing. Those attacks come out pretty fast, have great range, and therefore are hard for your opponent to get past if you space them correctly.

Ike's probably one of the harder characters to use, but to me Snake is really the only one I can never get a grasp on. He's one of the top characters according to most, yet he's probably the character I do worst with haha. He's just too different.

I think ROB is really hard to use. His moves are similar and his Final Smash is kind of boring.
I am also really uncomfortable playing with the Ice Climbers because the
sister/brother always dies before me and I end up weak and jumping off the screen just to respawn my annoying sibling.
