Inkling

You'll find Inkling dominating most smash ultimate tier lists. Powerful throw combinations and the ink mechanic is highly overpowered.

Pichu

Pichu

Pichu currently plays like a low-cost Pikachu. It's probably safer to take Pikachu instead.

Sheik

Sheik

Sheik has amazing combos and frame data but lacks damage. If a buff was given to damage output, Sheik could easily be a top tier character.

Cloud

Cloud

Gained some more consistency with a buff to his recovery.

Marth

Marth

A less consistent and powerful version of Lucina.

King K Rool

King K Rool

Easily punishable and is known to be one of the weakest heavy characters. Relies on gimmicky moves and becomes predictable very quickly.

Kirby

Kirby

Lack in speed and range makes Kirby drop off the radar heavily compared to other characters in the same category.

Bot Tier

Dr. Mario
Dr. Mario
Lucario
Lucario
Ganondorf
Ganondorf
Little Mac
Little Mac
Little Mac

Little Mac

Doesn't have many options in the current meta. Any other ground character will surpass Little Mac in terms of dynamic and usability. Is in need of a desperate buff/rework
