Super Smash Bros. is an incredible crossover fighting series that has been around since 1999. With every iteration, Nintendo has seemingly only bolstered the highly popular franchise with new features and interesting characters. Well, fans of the series are now deeply entrenched within the franchise’s latest installment.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch has a wonderful lineup of incredible characters to choose from. While many players are happy that the title features such an inclusive lineup, many players are consistently stumped when it comes to choosing a character to play. If you are having a tough time finding a character that’s right for you, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Check out our tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s roster down below.

Tier List Descriptions

  • 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.

Hunter Boyce is a writer, which probably seems pretty obvious with "author" prominently displayed. He mostly writes about video games. However, he was previously a mixed martial arts news writer. When not writing about people pelting each other in the face or about leveling up in the latest RPG, he tends to spend his time as a web producer in Atlanta. You can shout all of your MMA and video game related quandaries at him at @SomthinClever on Twitter. Feel free to make your demands to him in ALL CAPS. He loves that.
