Sephiroth was the third character announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s second Fighters Pass, and is the only antagonist to appear as downloadable content! His physical amiibo figure has a huge sword, so make sure you’ve got room to display it. In terms of in-game firepower, Sephiroth is kind of just okay, both as a competitive FP and as a Raid Boss. For more information on his metagame presence, feel free to refer to his corresponding wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

We usually start our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate veteran training guides by talking about the character’s performance in the previous title, Super Smash Bros. 4. Let’s continue that trend by stating that Cloud was insane in that game. He was one of two fighters to be completely banned from competitive play, though he was later allowed back under a set of strict equipment restrictions. Cloud isn’t quite as strong in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but he’s still pretty good — in fact, he’s at the higher end of mid-tier. Whether it’s as a tournament contender or a Raid Boss, Cloud’s got tons of potential. If you’d like to learn more about him, feel free to check out his wiki page. Otherwise, let’s jump right into today’s training!

At the time of writing, Sephiroth isn’t “officially” available to players just yet — to play as him before his release on December 22, you’ll have to beat the Sephiroth Challenge, which we detailed in our short guide. Unfortunately, it’s probably going to be a long time before we see a Sephiroth amiibo, but that won’t stop us from trying to predict what his presence might look like in our current metagame.
Sure, we’ll do one of these posts for Steve and Min Min, too, but they’re not very popular right now. We’ve got to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak, so today we’re talking about Sephiroth’s kit and what his Figure Player might be able to do with it. The short answer is that we think he’ll be mid-tier at the absolute worst, and top-tier at best. Let’s go into that in a bit more detail!
