Tier lists have circulated the internet for as long as amiibo training has existed, and now, official ones are finally available. In Super Smash Bros. 4, heavyweight fighters like Bowser and Ganondorf ruled the metagame; in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the top-tier fighters are more diverse and cannot be categorized into a single description.
In Super Smash Bros. 4
In Super Smash Bros. 4, equipment was both allowed and encouraged; it was almost always included in the standard ruleset. Little Mac and Cloud were once banned from competitive play, but were later permitted under a strict set of restrictions. This tier list accounts for both of these restrictions; Little Mac and Cloud are still top-tier, but are not the best characters in the game. The list was last updated on June 25, 2019.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Spirits are seldom used in tournaments; the standard Ultimate ruleset encourages that Figure Players be left vanilla. The tier list below represents the vanilla metagame; however, an alternative list representing Spirits metagame can be found here (and does not account for any bans or restrictions on Super Armor or Slow Super Armor). These tier lists were last updated on August 8, 2019.
