  • Tier S — These characters are highly popular picks among players. If you are looking to gain an advantage over your opponents, you will likely want to pick among these figures.
  • Tier A — These characters are still quite popular choices. Largely considered to be quite effective, each of these characters will likely be beneficial in a variety of scenarios.
  • Tier B — These characters are average. Common picks among players, these characters are generally well balanced and still quite effective in the hands of a skilled player.
  • Tier C — These characters are less popular picks. Not quite as well rounded as other characters, these figures will require a skilled player in order to be used effectively.
  • Tier D — These characters are the least popular picks among players. Generally believed to be less effective than their counterparts, it is perhaps best to avoid these characters in favor of others.

    bro what the hell is this tier list. Ike above Wolf, Fox, Pikachu, Snake, Palutena…. do you even play this game? also why are Peach and Daisy so far apart? They’re literally the exact same fighter. This tier list is laughable.
