Some of those matchups are disputed at length, but I do suppose some pro Smashers disagree and put Kirby at a whopping ... 24th.
Doesn't matter to me.  At least he's above Mr. Intentionally Weak Joke.

Tier list is probably wildly inaccurate, don't trust any lists you see until several months after release.

and just don't obsess about those dang things either, exactly my point that people put waaaaay too much weight in that *bleep*

mac can still whoop your ass especially if you have matchup inexperience, you wouldn't do well to underestimate any character by competent players really

none of you are ultra competitive schlubs either, so tier lists don't apply whatever, and tier lists are complete moot in items high time match 8 player stage morph team battle friendly fire

but kirby is still terrible in melee, and game & watch feels outright busted in the wrong way like with his nonexistent shield and some moves being unable to be l-canceled

in the matches i play in, idk, your character's viability in 1v1 tournaments won't magically grant him an extra shield against 7 other fighters, Deoxy's Hyper Beam, Kyogre's hydro pump, exploding blast boxes, and a dead yellow devil. all at once.

Pichu is not Mr. Intentionally Weak Joke in Ultimate.

no one is, really, but it's pretty sad that in melee bowser and kirby rival pichu in terms of top class weakness too; nothing about bowser feels right in melee, so he's not fun in casual play either

Very inaccurate when you realize that King K. Rool, Charizard, and Mr. Game & Watch are considered to be very terrible. And yes, you really have to separate the Pokemon Trainer's Pokemon this time.

I like tier lists because they provide relatively accurate rankings for the general consensus of the competitive Smash community even if they aren't to be taken as scientific law. Of course, the older a game is, the more accurate its tier list is. Also, tier lists don't mean much for 80 - 90% of Smash players since character superiority really only matters at very high levels of play. I like looking at tier lists because they're interesting even though mean nothing for my gameplay.

Also I'm pleased that some of my mains such as Young Link and Ness happen to be high tier in most current Ultimate tier lists (of course, them being high-tier does not affect whether or not they are my mains).

Image posters of newcomers should also include Assist Trophy characters of the game the newcomer is first playable in. Fighters are guaranteed to be included with the newcomer like a welcoming ceremony, so I figured that Assist Trophy characters could feasibly be included too.

Thank you for reading.

I guess they're perceived as "good" but all Smash Ultimate tier lists you currently see are inaccurate, so take any you see on the Internet with a grain of salt.

I don't know if this opinion is necessarily unpopular but I hope Olimar gets nerfed or at the very least everyone in the cast gets buffed in hopes that dealing with Olimar is easier because dealing with that little dude is annoying as hell.
play smash ultimate it's really good

git gud

I hate nerfs because instead of making more characters viable, it just stops characters from being viable. Unless a character is OP there shouldn't be any nerfs, and in this case both Olimar and Inkling require a lot of skill to learn, and at their best are just powerful, not overpowered. So that brings me back to first thing I said:

Get Good

Learn the match-up, practise against them in arenas and offline, but don't call for nerfs just because you can't beat the character.

If anything I'd like to see some buffs to characters who are bad such as Little Mac and King K. Rool.
