Wolf, Falco, and Peach were common in the top 64 of Defend the North's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event but only a lone Peach made it into the top 8

Over 400 competitors have been participating at Defend the North 2019's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event this weekend. Notable players include PG|Marss, Rogue|Light, eU|Samsora, T1|ANTi, Demise|Mr. E, SpS|LeoN, John Numbers, DA|Sinji, Liquid|Dabuz, and many more.

In order for someone to make top 64, about three or four victories would be necessary, depending on how they were seeded. Let's take a look at which combatants made an impact at this tournament by looking at the top 64 character usage stats for the event.

In total, there were eight users that fought as part of the Wolf pack. As a result, Wolf was the most popular fighter this time around.

Curiously, Falco was a common choice despite the fact that he's not often regarded as a top tier these days. Falco was used four times as a main and once as a secondary.

Peach also ended up making waves at the event. Not too surprising as she actually is looked at one of the game's stronger characters. For Peach, there were four competitors representing her.

Fox, Greninja, Pokémon Trainer, and Palutena were the most impactful after the other three.

Bowser, Fox, Olimar, Rosalina & Luma, Peach, Snake, Lucina, Zero Suit Samus, Palutena, Ryu, and Pac-Man can be found in the top eight. Interestingly enough, only Fox was a repeat character here, but that's because someone used him as a secondary.
