Pikachu can excel in any playstyle, defensive or offense and wins most match-ups.
Peach and Daisy are one of the best melee fighters in this smash ultimate tier list with their rapid tilts and juggling combos.
Joker has some incredible close range and melee attacks and when filling up your gauge you can zone your opponent with ease.
You'll find Inkling dominating most smash ultimate tier lists. Powerful throw combinations and the ink mechanic is highly overpowered.
Incredible mid-air control and is one of the best sword fighters in this smash ultimate tier list.
Incredible kill potential, especially when stacking purples.
Pichu currently plays like a low-cost Pikachu. It's probably safer to take Pikachu instead.
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.
Gained some more consistency with a buff to his recovery.
A less consistent and powerful version of Lucina.
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.
Lack in speed and range makes Kirby drop off the radar heavily compared to other characters in the same category.
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
