'Make Incineroar good Nintendo' — Mew2King on fighters that need buffs, Armada hopes Falco and others get buffed in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

There are several worthy candidates — could nerfs to other fighters be more viable?

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is as fluid a fighting game as one can remember. With more DLC than most other games, balance patches are consistently incoming.

With a guaranteed three more characters in Ultimate as DLC, that means at least three more balance patches. Many players have hopes for particular fighters to receive buffs as a result of the balance patches.

Alliance|Armada is one of the true legends in Smash Bros. history. His winning and respected tenure makes for a very strong reputation when it comes to competitive play.

With Banjo-Kazooie incoming, a new patch will hit with it. Armada recaps the fighters he would like to see improved. His choices were Corrin, Pit, Ridley, Captain Falcon, and surprisingly Falco.

FOX| Mew2King and MVG|Salem are widely respected as competitors. A long time Smash Bros. pro, Mew2King is another of the true legends of Smash, having been number one at some point across Melee and Brawl while achieving top results in both Smash 4 and Ultimate. When they talk, people tend to listen.

Incineroar, Jigglypuff, Kirby, Marth, Little Mac, Donkey Kong, Isabelle, Mii Brawler, Bowser Jr. and Ridley are the MVG choices for improvements. It's an extensive list, but certainly in the realm of reason after the reasons are stated.

With an incoming patch, make sure to look at the Super Smash Bros. tier list. Are there some on there who aren't in the proper position? Who, and why do you think so?

Who are you hoping gets buffed and nerfed in the incoming patch? Are you hopeful your main gets better?
