SSBU/Tier Lists

From Dragdown

Stop! Read me first!

The tier lists on this page are subjective in nature, and are the products of their individual authors. You can only trust a tier list as much as you trust its author.

Tier lists reflect the understanding on relative character strength at the time that they are written. Metas can develop and characters can change after a tier list is made.

Tier lists usually do not account for character difficulty, but that can sometimes be a factor depending on the author. Depending on your goals and how competitive you are, tier lists may or may not be entirely irrelevant.
