An offline tier list of the best characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate (SSBU). Find out which characters are top tier in Smash Ultimate Ver. 12.0.0, and learn the best characters for playing competitively in Smash Ultimate, as well as extensive guides on how to play each character.
We currently have ranked Kazuya Mishima in the A Tier (High Tier), although this rating may go up or down as this character's meta develops, and depending on the kind of results we see with them in tournaments.
Kazuya’s moves themselves all do heavy damage, and on top of that, he has several moves for closing out stocks. With a huge list of command inputs needed to utilize his full kit, one of the biggest drawbacks to Kazuya is his sheer complexity.
Due to a short first jump and short range on most moves, Kazuya will also struggle against characters with swords, as well as fast characters capable of camping him out.
Note: Characters are ordered within each tier.
Explanation of tiers:
S = Top Tier
A+ = Nearly Top Tier
A = High Tier
B = High Mid Tier
C = Mid Tier
D = Low Tier
E = Bottom Tier
No Items, Fox only... you know the rest.
The tier lists were both made with the following rules in consideration:
|・1 on 1 / 3 Stock
・Tournament viable stages only (Battlefield, Final Destination, etc.)
Additionally, the tier list shown here is based on Smash Ultimate offline. Since some characters are affected by the online environment more than others, see our Online Tier List to see how we ranked characters there.
Through playing the game for hundreds of hours as and against the full roster, we considered strengths and weaknesses when putting together our tier list. Additionally, we thought hard about each character's matchup spread, and characters with a higher number of winning matchups were ranked more favorably.
While it was not our top criteria, we did observe statistical data showing the win rates and tournament results of characters in offline competitions. Since this data can be seen as somewhat objective evidence of a character's power, we looked closely at this data and matched it with our own findings.

Shulk does have the speed option, so that’s a good choice.
Or, you can use spirits that increase speed.
Is there any Mario character matchups here?
Or Yoshi character matchups?
Thank you so much!
