Leffen unveils his version 7.0 tier list for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, shares thoughts on newcomer Byleth

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has gotten a bit of a shakeup recently as a new character and some balance tweaks have players pulling out magnifying glasses once again and investigating where their game is precisely at.

Community figure TSM|Leffen has offered his two cents via a new tier list video wherein he orders all of Ultimate's roster in terms of overall strength and gives his early thoughts on the brand new Byleth.

We've been hearing that Ultimate's ninth Fire Emblem character isn't all that impressive yet. A lot of opinions have placed Byleth in the lower tiers and after a thorough breakdown our own Adaptive Trigger has concluded that they're the weakest of all DLC in Fighters Pass 1.

"Overall, I get the sense that Byleth is a low tier character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Perhaps on the lower end of mid tier at best. I do believe that Byleth is the weakest of all the DLC released so far — even compared to Piranha Plant," states Trigger. It seems Leffen feels a similar way as he too places Byleth in the low-mid tier category. He speaks specifically on Byleth at the 58:20 mark, if you're interested.

If you'd like a detailed explanation as to the placings of each and every fighter on the list, you can check out the full video which is just over an hour in length. If you'd rather cut right to the chase and see the end result, simply click on the thumbnail below.

As always, we'd love to hear your opinions and feedback on Leffen's list, so please chime in to the comments with your thoughts. Obviously Byleth is the hot topic right now, and so if you disagree with Leffen's placing of them we'd be happy to hear why.
