ZeRo's third part of his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 2.1 list reveals the high tier characters

Earlier this week, Gonzalo "Tempo|ZeRo" Barrios had begun his tier list series for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 2.1. In part one, he talked about the bottom tier and the low tier characters. As for part two, he went over the 38 mid tier combatants.

ZeRo has released his third part out of four today. This time he's going over high tier fighters. While the second part in the series lasted over an hour, this third part will require a little over 45 minutes to hear all of ZeRo's opinions.

Remember that ZeRo is taking the time to order each tier category. In addition to this, ZeRo has detailed and interesting explanations as to why he placed each character the way that he did.

The smashers that managed to find their way into ZeRo's high tier category include Ike, Palutena, Sonic, PAC-MAN, Young Link, Snake, Mii Swordfighter, Roy, Chrom, Marth, Link, Mega Man, and more. In total, there are 21 characters in high tier.

You'll definitely want to tune back in tomorrow for the final part that will list out the top tiers in ZeRo's mind. There are currently 11 unmentioned choices.

Interestingly enough, Marth is the first (and likely only) character to be separated from their Echo Fighter. As a result, we should be expecting to see Lucina in the top tier group tomorrow.

Below is an image that recreates ZeRo's high tier rankings. After the jump, you can check out the video with time stamps for each discussed fighter.
