My least favorite is Gaspard De Vole.
One, the translation of his name is Gaspard Of Rat.
Two, he is weak and dies too much.
Three, he doesn't critical much.

My second least favorite is Louis Le Bisque
One, he doesn't hit for good damage, usually like 29 for me
Two, he spawns too much
Three, he makes a weird noise when he hits

-Too cool for you-

I agree about Gaspard, but I don't know about Louis Le Bisque become I am a swashbuckler lol. But either way
Gaspard has terrible health, damage, critical rate, dodge and accuracy... yes he is terrible

All Swashbucklers have terrible health, I don't see how that's much of an argument. And every swashbuckler has the same base dodge and accuracy, if not, different by one point or two. I honestly like Milo and Gaspard because they do a large amount of damage each turn :D

My least favorite companions would have to be Kan Po ( I just never really trained him that much and I don't want to... ), Batacuda, and Old Scratch. I just can't stand it when Old Scratch fizzles almost EVERY SINGLE turn!

Old Scratch is awful, I know. But Kan Po??? Despite his AWFUL health amount, he can get enemies within a few hits! I've seen him!

I don't really dislike any of them, but the one at the bottom of my roster is Jane Canary, she just dosn't seem to ever do anything special.
My least favorite companion is the batcuda because he is not very good in battle and hits for a total of 456 damage at his 62 level

Monquistador Crossbowman, Monquistador Explorer, Crab Hermit, and Nurse Quinn. Honestly, I wish I never did the side quests for Quinn or Hermit...

Mine would have to be the crazy monquistan crossbowman you can get after fighting gortez. His attack simple, he just looks weird (yes I know he is insane but still), and he is one of the only people on my crew who has never gotten a single promo

I would have to say my least favorite is Billy The Kid.
The Billygoat Gunslinger.

I'm just not a fan of goats for some reason.

He seems to draw attention to quickly and dies just as fast.
I have promoted Billy the kid on my level 65 buccaneer, and with the right epics I must say he is an excellent companion!

It's a true fact that the water mole slingman is the worst companion in the game, if you think about it. he's absolutely horrible. Here's why: reason no. 1: unlike most companions, he only gets 13 talents! I know this isn't huge but if you think about it, the better companions get 16 and the worse only get 13, which is kind of proof that he's not good. reason no. 2: he only gets one epic! he's the only companion with one epic and no promotion! however, before promotions, the very worst companion is *shivers* the monquistador crossbowman! only one epic: return fire. 13 talents at max level. however, he promotes and he can get overwatch, which is a good epic. everything I said about this companion goes the same for the crazed crossbowman. for me, currently, the best are a tie between zeena, kan po/keisuke yagi, and el toro. that is, if you train them all right.

For me its Bonnie, yeah sure in the beginning of the game she's cool and all, but later on she becomes SO SQUISHY

As a privateer I have to focus on her whenever we're in a battle and she gets in because usually in a couple hits she dies. The other complaint... she does soo little damage compared to my other companions ( I tried to train here equally, but when I did.. she still didn't do any good damage.)

So for me... any companion is better then Bonnie for now

My least favorite compainion should be in between the Crab Hermit, ( of course because I don't like his moves for some reason ) Old Scratch, ( he's too week for me and he has less health than my other compainions ) and Milo Graytail. ( just too weak )

Been reading these past comments on your opinions, and I gotta say, it's nice to see each others variety of choices. I've been thinking, could you guys be more specific as to why ya dont like a companion? Some I've seen are "too weak" or "low health" and sometimes, they are just common things that go for all companions in the same class. For example, I dont like my watermole slingman because he lacks epics. I think everyone can agree on that. If KI makes those smaller companions better next update, hopefully they'll be used more, because I think many of those "useless" companions have a ton of potential in them.

Well I keep Old Scratch dead until I can put him to sleep. Wait! isn't he already dead? Oh well I'll just put him to sleep then. I only leveled him up to max on my first pirate and found his misses annoying his minions are a good distraction for about one round. Don't like the mole witchdoctor either but he is way better than Scratch imho so I tend to use him more. The only witchdoctor I do like is the Mooshu pig one or the Snake lady both are great but come late in the game.
Now I'm not against Witchdoctors I have a level 65 one I really enjoyed playing but the companion ones I get I mostly keep asleep.

I hate Kan Po. I upgraded him twice and he STILL dies every time. I also dont liek milo graytail. he rarely hits. - wicked scarlet, lvl 42 witchdoctor
If you hate Kan Po, then you must have trained him badly. As of now he is one of the best companions. Wanna make him awesome? Here's how: when you promote him at lvl 13, give him relentless rank 2. Remember to give him lots of dodge, accuracy, damage, and agility. When you promote him again at level 46, give him riposte 2. Keep giving him accuracy, dodge, agility, and damage. ( you're level 42 so you obviously haven't really upgraded him twice ) at lvl 65 he should have 4 accuracy, dodge, damage, and agility points trained for his talents. Remember in PVE ( not PVP ) to make him use walk in shadows really early, usually the first round of the battle. Then do his guaranteed epic hit, it does tons of damage He never dies for me since he dodges almost every hit, unless he's battling a musketeer but then his agility and heal protect him so he still doesn't die.
(remember, higher agility scores less to enemies with higher agility, so Kan Po/Keisuke Yagi use their high agility to take less damage from a musketeer's high agility. He also gets Rally, the owl healing spell once you finish his 2nd promotion, just like Wing Chun does) I recommend taking my advice, if you do you're gonna love Kan Po.

- Helpful Brian Hawkins, lvl 63 One of many proud captains of the real Kan Po.
Happy pirating!

I'd rather have Milo Gray tails on both my Swashbuckler and Buccaneer than HIM. (All my other pirates picked all the orphanages except for the Armada one)

Say WHAT?!?! Mormo isn't weak at all! Have you even seen what he can do after all his promotions?!

Ah, got to be nice. If you think Mormo isn't good you must have trained him badly. For my Witchdoctor, Mormo is one of my top companions, and is a huge power player. He's very useful in a jam, and he can be pretty dangerous in pvp.

As for my least favorite companion, I'd say.........Bones McGee and Sky Snake.

Jul 20, 2013
My least favorite companions are the sky creatures ( Sky Snake, Batacuta, etc.) I do not like them because they do not upgrade, they are VERY weak, and they are like a MAGNET to players, because my opponents ALWAYS attack them first. whenever I get the chance, I use a sleep button on them.

The one and only, Silver Hunter Hawkins Lv. 39 Witchdocter (also look at my favorite companion slot when you get the chance)

You guys are crazy...Crab Hermit Colin is my Favorite companion and my first mate...he comes with a crab crawlie that takes agro for me every fight keeping everyone couple that with old scratch with his skeleton...and those boots that also summon a skeleton and the enemy just picks on the pets all fight and leaves me alone

Dec 31, 2008
My least favorite is Louis Le Bisque. When you first get him as your third companion. He doesn't do a lot of damage even with critical hits. I haven't gotten him to his second promotion yet so my opinion might change when he does get promoted. I've seen some people with him in PvP do some major damage with his new ability with his second promotion to crab harpooner. In conclusion, Louis just doesn't do enough damage compared to my other companions until possibly his second promotion.
