Which characters are the most popular for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate so far? Usage stats for Kumite in Tennessee, Valhalla 2, and Smash Conference

Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • January 6, 2019 at 7:39 p.m. PST

We had three major events host Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments this weekend. These events are Kumite in Tennessee, Valhalla 2, and Smash Conference United

The meta for this month old game is already beginning to develop. Events like these are starting to help us understand which players and characters are going to be dominant throughout the game's lifespan.

orKsGP|Glutonny ended up taking Valhalla 2 with his disgustingly good Wario. FOX|MKLeo proved at the Smash Conference that we should really like Ike. Finally, the competition just wasn't able to keep up with Typo|Sonido's Sonic at Kumite in Tennessee.

Outside of their performances, which other characters are helping competitors bring their best performance? Also, which fighters aren't seeing much representation yet?

This is an extremely diverse cast. After all, there are 74 different combatants to choose from. There's someone available to represent just about everyone.

Hit the jump to check out the top 64 character usage stats for the Smash Conference, the top 32 character usage stats for Valhalla 2, and the top 8 character usage stats for Kumite in Tennessee.

Numbers listed in parenthesis represent alternate or back-up characters used during the event.
