Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been out for almost a month now and fans have voted on the best and worst characters in the game.
Actually, it gets a little more complicated than that. We’re talking tier lists, which is every gamer’s favorite reference to make sure they’re not playing at a disadvantage.
Nintendo didn’t release any official data to create this tier list but does reveal certain elements like speed and weight. So users over at the /r/SmashBros subreddit joined together and created a tier list based on votes with over 14,000 users input on who’s the best character in SSBU.
This is the largest and most accurate unofficial tier list released for SSBU to date based on the sheer number of votes:
The list is split into different levels with high, mid, and low tier each with their own subdivisions. The top tier has only one character, and that’s Pikachu.
However, the user who created the list states that Pikachu didn’t reach the quota of votes set out beforehand to be considered top tier, but rather just had the most votes overall compared to the other characters.
Bowser Jr. was the least popular character and considered garbage, with the majority determining that he’s the least powerful character in the entire game. He’s the lowest tier possible.

In other news, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX recently revealed that he’s enjoying the game and that his favorite character s Zero Suit Samus.
