Meta Knight is no longer is a prime that once saw him banned from competitive play. He doesn't have an absurd recovery anymore, his weight is no longer heavy to the point of contending with ROB for difficulty and KOing, his speed has been reduced, and power taken.

Does this mean you should drop him? Of course not. Meta Knight can still be a very technical character that can setup with his down throw, something that Kirby is no longer capable of doing. Meta Knight's tilts are still as difficult as you could imagine, and his aerial game still benefits from a large amount of priority that his attacks contain.

Are his specials as good? No, but that doesn't mean they're bad. The top tier of Brawl has definitely been flipped upside down, but Meta Knight didn't drop as hard as Falco or Olimar had. Meta Knight should still be an option to keep in mind, especially since juggling is incredibly easy thanks to his u-air and multi jump capability.
