One of the top Smash 4 players in the world, MkLeo, has now made a Smash Ultimate Tier List. MkLeo orders his top 5 Smash Bros Ultimate characters and ranks the rest by different tier levels based on their strengths and weaknesses. Here’s MkLeo’s January 2019 Smash Ultimate Tier List.

Other Smash Bros Ultimate Tier Lists
It’s interesting to see how MkLeo’s Tier List compares with other pro players’ Smash Bros Ultimate Tier Lists.
The Smash Bros Ultimate Tier Lists from player to player are starting to look a lot more similar. Here’s ANTi’s tier list for comparison.
It seems there’s an almost universal agreement amongst pros that Daisy and Peach are the best Smash Bros Ultimate characters. Olimar, Inkling, and Lucina/Marth are also very highly rated on many tier lists.
Characters like Richter, Simon, Pichu, Palutena, and Link are also top characters in the opinion of many pro players.
Meanwhile, characters like Kirby, Little Mac, Bowser Jr., and Duck Hunt Duo are consistently rated low tier.
As time goes on, things will likely change as new patches introduce character changes and more tournaments show the abilities of Fighters.
