Here are the run speed rankings for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's entire roster

'You're too slow'

Thanks to the efforts of Kurogane Hammer, we now know the weight classes of the entire roster for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The website has also released information regarding the ground run speeds of the cast.

Just because a fighter is a heavy weight, it doesn't necessarily mean they are slow. The game's heaviest brawler, Bowser, isn't the slowest on the ground, for example.

For the third game in a row, Sonic is uncontested as the game's fastest runner. Interestingly enough, his speed actually got buffed. He went from having a speed value of 3.5 to 3.85 — a 10% increase.

Meanwhile, Sheik's speed has also seen quite the increase. This now makes her the fourth fastest in the game, pushing Fox down to fifth.

With the addition of Incineroar, Robin is no longer the slowest in the game. Now he's only the second slowest. Notably though, he is also receiving a speed increase.

There's also data for the Piranha Plant. Interestingly enough, it's even slower than Incineroar. Assuming this isn't just a placeholder stat, then it means that the Piranha Plant will be the slowest runner in the game.

You might be surprised to hear that Pikachu is actually faster than Pichu in this regard. Also, the secondary Ice Climber (referred to as Nana) is faster than the lead Ice Climber (Popo) to help keep them together more consistently.
