Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters Tier List | ProGuides
In the Super Smash Bros Ultimate community, tier lists exist to show the
competitive viability of every character. Tier lists are largely opinion
based and can vary based on how much you weigh results vs theoretical
viability, but you’ll still see many similar trends amongst many lists.
Our tier list is based on opinions and insights from numerous Smash
Ultimate professional players, and how these characters perform in each
update. This list is updated when there is a general consensus that a
certain character has either fallen out of favor, or come to greater
strengths than they previously had.
How our tier list was calculated:
The position of each character is calculated based on numerous factors
about said character, such as:
The character’s performance in lan tournament play
The character’s performance in comparison to other characters with
respect to matchups
The character’s overall performance on the current legal stage list and
The character’s individual attributes, strengths, weaknesses, and
After careful consideration of each of these 4 points, we placed
characters in their according tiers. One important thing to consider about
our tier list, is that it is not ordered within each tier. It is commonly
conceived that one character may be at the top of a tier among other
characters, while just not quite reaching the tier above. However we
believe that it’s much more fair to place characters in the same tiers,
not in order because they fall under the same tier for multiple reasons.
There are a few special considerations for characters in the game here on
our list. For Pokemon Trainer, we have Squirtle Ivysaur and Charizard here
to recognize each character and to provide unique information on each on
our character pages. However for our tier list, we consider them all
equivalent as one character. Each Pokemon serves a special role, so we
consider the overall strategy for using all three in each applicable
matchup, and you’ll never see this group move apart from each other.
Additionally for Mii Fighters, we consider the potential option of every
available special move and how they can affect matchups, and find the
comfortable average of where to place them on our tier list - regardless
of what special set they run.
It’s also important to consider how influential each of the 4 points is in
deciding our tier list. For us, tournament play and results is one of our
largest factors. If a certain character in any meta of the game is having
success across the board it will largely influence their placement on our
tier list. We believe that tournament play is a very important influencer
in how a character places on a tier list, because that’s where the
characters are tested to their upper limits and truly define success or
Match up strength and versatility is also another important factor on our
list. If a certain character has the ability to win a larger number of
match ups across the board than another character does, this will largely
impact their placement on our list as it typically signifies a greater
rate of success in tournaments. The matchups a character is good at can
also come into play. Joker is an extremely common and strong character, so
fighters that have an easier time against Joker will be considered much
stronger than characters who are good against Little Mac, one of the worst
characters in the game. It’s generally a stronger trait to excel in fewer
matchups against meta-relevant top tier characters rather than stomping a
slew of bottom tier characters.
We understand that tier lists might not reflect exactly what you may think
of a certain character, and all characters do have the potential to win
sets against another character in the right player's hands. However, when
making a tier list we have to look at consistent placement of these
characters in tournaments, and overall every aspect of the game. We
carefully took into consideration each of the four points listed above
into each character's placement on our tier list, and separated them based
on each strength point put together.
