With characters like Olimar, Peach, and Pichu nerfed in the latest patch — version 3.1.0 — for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the meta has been developing in interesting ways. Although FOX|MkLeo is basically the only player that's pushing success with this character right now, Joker appears to be among the top echelon right now.

A notable Super Smash Bros. 4 and Ultimate player, Dyr, has released his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list for version 3.1.0 of the game. Although he was a Diddy Kong player in Smash 4, he's been maining Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In his recently unveiled list, Dyr states Joker as the game's current best fighter. Dyr's video on the subject explains his opinions as to why this is.

According to Dyr, Joker has access to the best projectile in the game, which is the gun, insane kill power which gets further supplemented by Arsene, setups, combos, and "basically everything that you'd want in a character."

After Joker, Snake is painted as being the second strongest character in the game. Other characters found in the top tier category — who are able to win majors without intense bracket luck — include Zero Suit Samus, Pokémon Trainer, Palutena, R.O.B., Pikachu, Roy, Greninja, Peach, Wolf, and Olimar.

The high tiers are made up of some very interesting choices. Simon Belmont, Incineroar, Diddy Kong, Cloud Stife, Bowser, Ness, Wario, Lucina, Pichu, Inkling, and a number of others are found here.

Fighters like Pac-Man, Mega Man, Ridley, Mr. Game and Watch, Piranha Plant, Wii Fit Trainer, Ryu, Ice Climbers, Meta Knight, and more are said to be able to get very far in a bracket based on player skill. In other words, these are labeled as mid tiers by Dyr.

Not too many combatants occupy the low tier group. Those that do include Sonic, Ganondorf, Sheik, Bayonetta, Link, Lucario, Villager, and more. To get far in the bracket with these fighters, they'd have to be entirely carried by the player's skill.

Luckily, the bottom tier category is the smallest grouping of all. Zelda, Isabelle, King K. Rool, Jigglypuff, Kirby, and Little Mac are located here.

Be advised that there is some NSFW language in the video ahead.
