Since January, the Smash Bros Ultimate Version 2.0.0 Patch has changed a lot of characters. We also now have a lot more information on which characters are the best competitively with the Genesis 6 results in the books. Now, two of the Top 8 from Genesis 6 have each made a new February 2019 Smash Ultimate Tier List. Here’s how they look.

MkLeo came 1st in Genesis 6 with Ike. However, interestingly, Ike is outside of his top 10 characters. Here’s his February 2019 Smash Ultimate Tier List. He also made a chart of Ike’s best matchups.

We now have a much better idea of who the best characters in Smash Bros Ultimate are. But with more tournaments to come in February and new DLC characters on the way, the tier lists could always be shaken up.
