Tempo|ZeRo continues to put out content over on his YouTube channel that further breaks down the intricacies of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With 74 playable characters currently on the roster and more on the way, there is still a ton to dive into — especially when it comes to learning and understanding the game's meta.

In one of his most recent videos, the Super Smash Bros. 4 champion shares his thoughts on a character who had a very strong ground game in Smash on Wii U. If you're a fan of Little Mac, this analysis might not be what you want to hear (though it's important to check it out).

ZeRo's video is titled "The Worst Character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate," and right at the start he says, "I think Little Mac is most likely the worst character in the game."

It's not just doom and gloom, though, as ZeRo explains that he feels Mac has the most weaknesses in Smash Ultimate. From worse ground mobility (due to Perfect Pivot not being in Smash Bros. Ultimate) to taking most of his follow ups from down tilt, Mac saw several of his tools and set ups toned down or removed entirely.

But outside of the smaller changes, ZeRo notes three major disadvantages that Little Mac suffers from in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. You'll have to watch the video to see what those are, but one of them comes in the form of Mac's somehow worse recovery when knocked off the stage.

Below is a quick clip showing ZeRo's explanation of Little Mac's recovery in Smash Ultimate. For his full thoughts, be sure to check out the full video.
