BC|Mr. R has released his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tier list for version 6.1 of the game — 6.1.1 only added amiibo functionality, so there's been no balance adjustments since the 6.1.0 Terry Bogard freeze fix patch. Notably, Mr. R is considered to be one of the top Super Smash Bros. Ultimate competitors in Europe and the world.

Being that the next DLC challenger will be revealed on January 16, this will likely be one of the last version 6.1 tier lists released as we'll soon have access to update 7.0.0.

As always, feel free to draw comparisons to our community voted tier list section. It's also worth mentioning that Liquid|Dabuz also released his own tier list not too long ago.

All challengers have been grouped together in one of seven different categories. These groups are S+, S, A, B, C, D, and E tier. Please note that only the S+ and D tier categories are unordered.

According to Mr. R, the best fighters in the game right now are Peach, Pikachu, Palutena, Joker, and Wario. This tends to be fairly consistent with other player opinions and character results.

One of Mr. R's main characters, Snake, can be found in the S tier group that lies directly below S+. The characters that are also above him are Zero Suit Samus, Shulk, Pokémon Trainer, and Inkling. Mr. Game & Watch is also present here, but he's below Snake on this list.

Mr. R is also known for being one of the best Chrom users in the world. He appears to have Chrom located in the A tier group. Fighters like Lucina, R.O.B., Greninja, Mario, Sonic, Mega Man, Dark Samus, and Terry Bogard have been positioned here as well.

His last character that tends to show up in tournaments, Young Link, was placed in B tier. We see that Hero, Ken Masters, Ness, Duck Hunt, Rosalina & Luma, Wii Fit Trainer, Cloud, and Sheik were placed in this category too.

Despite dominance in the early meta by FOX|MkLeo, Ike can be found in C tier. He's there along with characters like Zelda, Pit, Piranha Plant, Banjo-Kazooie, Ridley, Bayonetta, and Little Mac.

Near the very bottom, Dr. Mario, Donkey Kong, Corrin, Isabelle, Jigglypuff, and King K. Rool are considered to be among the worst according to Mr. R. All by his lonesome self, Ganondorf is the only fighter that occupies E tier.

Unfortunately, characters like Mii Brawler, Mii Gunner, Mii Swordfighter, Robin, Mewtwo, and Ryu aren't popular enough for Mr. R to have an opinion on. As a result, these six were unranked.
