We're only one week out from EVO 2019 where Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the headlining event, and we're already seeing another massive major going on this weekend with almost 3,000 players for the ever-popular title.

Finals day at Super Smash Con 2019 is currently going down, and we've gone ahead and collected the full character usage statistics for the top 128 competitors in Ultimate plus the top 64 of Melee which also had almost 1,000 players turn up.

Although he was 13th most popular at EVO, Snake continues the trend of dominating the upper brackets at tournaments with just under 10 percent of all top 128 either playing the super soldier or using him as a secondary which is kinda wild for a game with almost 80 fighters.

Pokémon Trainer and Wolf also continue their upwards trends though a character that used to top these charts almost every week has fallen off quite a bit. There was only one Pichu that made it to the upper part of the tournament, so those previous nerfs have apparently caught up with them big time.

As for Melee, it's no surprise to see Fox to have more than double the amount of players in second place being Peach with one quarter of top 64 using the most well-rounded fighter in the nearly 20-year-old game. Only two Captain Falcon's managed to crack top 64, but impressively both of them are sitting in top 8 with n0ne and HLC|S2J.

With 2,700 players making the trip for Ultimate, players had to go at least 5-2 to make it up to top 128 while Melee competitors had to reach at least 4-2 for top 64. You can check out the full Smash Con character breakdown below.
