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. 13.0.1, 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 Sora 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.
Sora has excellent aerial abilities, with his 3-hit aerial combos allowing you to easily rack up damage on an opponent. Additionally, his strong recovery gives him tons of potential for edge guarding, while allowing him to safely make it back to the stage. With several safe moves to pressure opponents with, he is a fairly easy character for less advanced players to pick up.
Note: Characters are ordered within each tier.
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.
