In gaming, The Tier List is The list that ranks all characters based on the strength of their fighting abilities and their potential to win matches under Tournament conditions, assuming equal skill on the Time of each opponent. The Tier List is decided from the analysis of the following:

  • The metagame and the effectiveness of the characters' strategies
  • Each character's moveset and statistics!
  • Each character's matchup spread!
  • Each character's tournament results

Tier lists are commonly created for fighting games that are played on the high competitive level, such as Mortal Kombat 9. Some games that aren't fighting games, but have large character sets, such as the Template:Uv series, can also have their Own Tier Lists.

This is the official and most widely-accepted Super Smash Bros. Dispute tier list. It is up to date as of December 3, 2017. It was organized From The Smash Back Room on Smashboards. According to the list, Lucario is the "best" character in the game and Fox is the "least best" character in the game. Lucario has tons of strong options, is quick, and has amazing frame data, and also the more damage he deal's, the more stronger he gets. Fox on the other hand, has recieved ALL nerfs to everything about him that was good for him in the other Smash games, and has recieved no buffs. The sad Thing about Fox ranked dead last at the tier list is that Fox was ranked top tier for every other Smash game, making this game the first Smash game where Fox is bottom tier. It should be noted that the tier list does not neccesarily mean that one character is Terrific while the other is Terrible.
