KJS|Maister has been a very notable Mr. Game and Watch player since Super Smash Bros. 4. He's often recognized as the best Mr. Game and Watch player in the world.

Since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was first released, he's been advocating that Mr. Game and Watch has been severely underrated in the game's meta.

Recently, Maister released a "pre-EVO match up chart" for his main character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Taking the chart at face value, it does give off the impression that Mr. Game and Watch is one of the stronger playable fighters right now.

According to Maister, Mr. Game and Watch only suffers from five bad match ups against Zero Suit Samus, Palutena, Ike, Chrom, and Lucina. The 2D icon might also possibly have troubling matches against Cloud and Olimar.

In terms of positive match ups, Mr. Game and Watch apparently has advantages against 47 different characters. This number extends to 49 if you include the unlisted Echo Fighters.

There's a possibility that the character might also beat Luigi, Duck Hunt, Peach / Daisy, Simon / Richter, and Shulk. At worst, these battles are supposedly even for him.

Interestingly enough, some of these advantages are against high tiers and top tiers. Those included in this category are Snake, Mega Man, Ken, R.O.B., Bowser, and more.

Not surprisingly, Mr. Game and Watch has particularly strong advantages (+2) against some of the weaker characters right now. Piranha Plant, King K. Rool, Little Mac, and Dr. Mario are a few examples.

Mr. Game and Watch also has match ups that are declared to be even against twelve fighters. Not too bad.
