Wolf and Inkling were the most prominent characters in the top 64 but neither of them made it into the top 8 — Glitch 6 SSBU character usage stats

The big Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament this weekend was Glitch 6. There were over 550 players who were entered into the singles event.

We'll be taking a look at the characters of the competitors that made it into the top 64 portion of the bracket. There are a total of 74 fighters in the roster right now. Which ones are the most prominent in the early stages of the meta?

Interestingly enough, Wolf was the combatant that appeared the most frequently in the top 64. Funnily enough, Wolf doesn't tend to be who people bring up during discussions about who the best character might be. Notably, no Wolf users made it into the top 8 or even the top 24 portion of the bracket.

While there were five people using Wolf as their primary fighter, four competitors were using Inkling with an additional user utilizing the Inkling as a backup character. There were also four users each for Palutena and Wario.

Unfortunately for fans of Greninja, Mega Man, Ryu, Ken, Wii Fit Trainer, King K. Rool, Pit, Dark Pit, Samus, Dark Samus, Ridley, Robin, Diddy Kong, and many more, there were plenty of characters that just couldn't make it into the top 64.

Still, it's nice to see that there's a diverse roster of characters that are being used at tournaments right now. Hit the jump to check out the character usage stats for Glitch 6.

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