The world's top Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player releases his hypest characters tier list

He might have a slight bias towards sword characters

Although we haven't gotten to see as much of him this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, it's still probably safe to call T1|MkLeo the best Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player in the world given his dominating performances last year with Joker, and he also has some interesting opinions about the game.

MkLeo recently released a new tier list for Smash Ultimate, but instead of ranking characters by their strength, he stacks them based on how hype they are to watch in tournaments and high-level matches.

The top of the list probably will look a bit familiar to you if you've watched Leo play in the past since most of his characters like Marth, Cloud and Joker are high up there though Lucina is surprisingly a few tiers lower.

It's also a bit funny to see both Ken and Terry in the "hype" category while Ryu is further down in just the "ok" side with Min Min, Pikachu and the Links.

After moving almost exclusively to online this year, it's easy to see why Leo would put Sonic in the "No" category with his lamer hit and run playstyle, but he also includes some more popular characters like Captain Falcon and Luigi.

To make this lower part of the list, the reigning EVO champion states that the fighter must usually not have a lot of combo options or ability, and he says that Falcon is still pretty much doing the same things since Melee.

MkLeo breaks down all of his decisions in the video you can check out below though there is some NSFW language present. The tiers unfortunately don't seem to include Sephiroth either, but he does appear to be having a good time with the new DLC so far too.
