Smash Bros pro Abadango has created a new Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List based on his current impressions of the game. We now know every character to appear in the launch roster of Smash Bros Ultimate, and many have been nerfed or buffed since the previous demo version.

New Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List by Abadango

Abadango made it clear that the new Smash Ultimate tier list was based on his current impressions. Tiers from top to bottom roughly translate to “Seems Strong”, “Seems Ok”, “Seems Weak”, and “Not Sure Yet”.

New Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List by Abadango

Strong – Pikachu, Olimar, Diddy Kong, Inkling, Link, Marth, Corrin, Lucina, Roy, Meta Knight, Sonic, Zelda, Bayonetta, Sheik, Ryu/Ken

There are some interesting rankings. Pikachu and Olimar are all the way at the top and Bayonetta is still top tier. Ken is two tiers below Ryu, while Ivysaur is a tier below other Pokemon Trainer characters.

Mew2King also gave his input.

Comparing to the Smash Bros Ultimate Demo Tier List

ZeRo, ESAM, Mew2King, and Salem previously showed their own Smash Bros Ultimate Demo Tier Lists after E3 and EVO 2018.

Naturally, things are a little different now. Players have been able to try many more characters, and a lot have had significant changes since the demo.

Pikachu, Bayonetta, Marth, and Sheik have been considered consistently strong in all Tier Lists. Meanwhile, it seems like Samus and Kirby are amongst the weakest.

A lot can change when pros discover how to utilize characters, but it’s interesting to see where everyone ranks.
