Welcome to Exion’s official Raid Boss tier list! Raid Bosses haven’t always been a thing — the term first popped up in 2020 after being coined by the popular YouTuber Choctopus. Since then, the phrase “Raid Boss” has come to refer to Figure players who have been specifically to take on human opponents. As you might expect, some characters do this job better than others. That being said, every fighter – even the ones ranked dead last – is wholly capable of utterly crushing a human player who doesn’t know what they’re doing. With that in mind, the best Raid Bosses listed here are the ones that are least exploitable by skilled Smashers.
This list is different from our competitive tier lists in many ways. For one, it’s almost entirely subjective — if we were to collect data on how each Raid Boss performs against other Raid Bosses, then we’d just wind up with another competitive tier list. Instead, we’re trying to rank how well each character performs against human opponents, and that tends to boil down to personal opinion. As such, you’ll want to take this list with a grain of salt (moreso than our competitive list, which is created via tournament data collection):
Tier List Details & Explanation
This list is absolutely subject to change, though it likely won’t receive as many updates as our competitive list — this is because the Raid Boss list is, as mentioned before, mostly rooted in opinion. Please note that a good chunk of the fighters placed toward the bottom of the list are ranked as such due to easily-exploitable recoveries. This means you’ll have to teach them to remain on stage at all costs.
