With regular patches and players finding new ways to play characters, the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List is bound to change over time. Now the pros have had a full month to play the game, things look a little different from the Smash Ultimate Tier Lists of 2018. Here are some 2019 Smash Bros Ultimate Tier Lists from Leffen, ANTi, and Komorikiri.
Leffen Smash Bros Ultimate Tier Grid January 2019
Leffen has updated his tier list from 2018, and this time, he’s gone for a tier grid style. He posted his tier list in a YouTube video.
This format is popular in other fighting games. It allows him to assess the well-roundedness of characters as well as how good they seem right now.
That means that while characters like Pichu and Donkey Kong are great right now, they also have some flaws that can be exploited.
Leffen believes Peach is the character with the highest ceiling. Pokemon Trainer, Inkling, Yoshi, Pikachu, Cloud, Palutena, and Inkling are also ranked as strong, well-rounded fighters.

Komorikiri ranks characters by their skill level and potential, with the bottom category being “I Don’t Know”. He considers Daisy, Peach, Greninja, Chrom, and Olimar to be the very top characters.
