Although Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's meta is particularly young, many might argue that FOX|MKLeo is the best player right now. This is difficult to contest considering that he recently won the most stacked event so far with 2,106 entrants — Genesis 6.

MKLeo has really demonstrated the potential of Ike and Lucina during major events. These two Fire Emblem characters are already being looked at as top tiers thanks to MKLeo's performance with them.

Recently, a tier list was released by MKLeo for patch 2.0.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Similar to the tier lists of other professional players, Peach and Daisy are seen as the strongest characters.

Note that MKLeo's top 17 combatants are arranged in a specific order while the rest of the tier list sees the remaining cast in unordered categories. According to MKLeo, Lucina is ranked at number four while Ike is the twelfth strongest in the game.

Other characters found at the top include Olimar, Wolf, Palutena, Pichu, Pikachu, Fox, Link, Inkling, Wario, Greninja, Mega Man, Snake, Chrom, and Roy. A keen observer might notice that MKLeo forgot to include Ridley to the list. He later clarified that Ridley is in the B+ group.

A match up chart for Ike was also released. It appears that MKLeo believes that Ike loses 14 match ups in the game (one of them being Squirtle from the Pokémon Trainer).

The list also indicates that 41 characters have a +1 or +2 disadvantage against Ike. If this ends up being accurate in the long run, then this means that Ike is a vastly improved fighter compared to his Brawl and Smash 4 incarnations.
