A gameplay element, usually an individual attack or playable character, is considered broken when it is the optimal course of action in a variety of situations and overshadows other gameplay elements, to the point where a broken strategy, for example, may be deemed as "unfair" and become banned competitively.
A common example of a broken element is Meta Knight as he appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where his attributes — more specifically, his gliding ability and extremely low frame data — make him competitively stronger than every other character; strong enough to cause the entire game's metagame to revolve around him.
In Super Smash Flash 2, there are currently no elements that are widely considered to be broken, albeit that was not always the case. In Super Smash Flash, due to every character being able to deal enormous amount of damage and knockback in a short time, while possessing similar recovery options and character archetypes, it is hard to deem a specific element as broken.

- Version 0.9.0.1956 is where Samus was considered broken due in part to her not having a hurtbox when she perform her down special move, Bomb. Even though Samus had little to hardly any KO ability; her using that move made her untouchable, gave her to many options and she could spam the move as much as the player desired.
- Version 0.9.0.2011 is where Sonic was considered broken due to his side special move, Light Dash. The properties that make Sonic broken, like Samus, is based entirely on one single move. Light dash has a lot of priority in the move, being able to cancel out most other attacks, can be followed up with different aerials and it can abused. All a player has to do is short hop light dash, then follow up with Sonic's neutral aerial. The attack can be auto-cancelled, allowing Sonic to follow up with any move after knocking the opponent down, due to Sonic being able to repeat this same tactic and having great follow up options is what makes him broken.
