It's always a good day in my book when we get to post about Ultra Street Fighter 4, and that's exactly the case today thanks to Mr. Justin Wong.

The renowned fighting game competitor has made splashes in more than a few individual scenes and was certainly one of the most notable USF4 players in all of America. He's developed a tier list for the final version of the game, and we're taking a look at it now.

To be fair, Justin hasn't exactly garnered the most stellar reputation when it comes to online tier lists in recent times. We're not at all questioning his fighting game knowledge, however, as he's been getting a good bit of attention for ordering things like fast-food restaurants and pop culture collections of sorts.

With that said, t's been a while since we've focused on Street Fighter 4 but some of these calls here might be a little questionable. Wong puts Elena as the number one character in the game, and while there's certainly a case to be made for her being a particularly useful fighter, is she really the best overall?

Those that remember the final days of USF4 recall just how often we'd see Elena pop up in tournament thanks to her unique ability to heal herself. She had some particularly good match ups, but often served as more of a secondary or pocket character instead of being a main.

Her versatility here does put her in discussions for the game's most notable fighters, and perhaps that includes best overall. See how Justin ordered the rest of the 44-fighter roster by clicking the image below. You can hear all of his explanations via the full video.
