Guide last updated on

Below you'll find tier rankings for old versions of the Street Fighter 4 series of games, including arcade and console releases of vanilla.

These rankings have been compiled from various people and places. They're simply an opinion about how the characters stack up against each other, they're not entirely reflective of how the match ups and characters stack up with one another.

October 2010 Tier Rankings for Super Street Fighter IV

You'll find a chart below showing roughly who would win how many games out of 10 if two high-level players of equal skill played against each other using the characters shown.

For example, M. Bison (Dictator) would win 6 games out of 10 against Crimson Viper. And Sagat would win 7 games out of 10 against Zangief.

Note: All of the names below are based off of the American release of the game. Balrog is the Boxer, Vega is Claw and so on.
