Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's latest update is almost a month old now with players still diving deep into the various buffs added to the game along with its latest playable fighter in Min Min.

PG|ESAM recently put together his Version 8.0.0 tier list for Ultimate where he believes Min Min is likely one of the top tiers in the game.

Instead of starting at the top, ESAM begins his explanation video of his tiers from the very bottom where the longtime pro says Ganondorf continues to be the worst character in Ultimate and may be even worse now that other low tiers received buffs while he did not.

Yes he may hit like a truck, but ESAM states the Zelda boss only has a couple of good moves like neutral air and doesn't have any sort of neutral game in place to actually get those heavy attacks in.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum lies ESAM's own main, Pikachu, who he believes is the absolute best in the game right now stating that there's no better edge guarder in Ultimate while his own recovery is second best. The up air bridge combos also push the yellow mouse over the top considering they allow for nasty kill confirm set ups while keeping the opponent at disadvantage even if they do manage to get out.

As for the newest character in the game, Min Min, the 14th-ranked player in the world actually places her up in the middle of top tier by saying she unsurprisingly has perhaps the best neutral play in Ultimate on top of having combos she can confirm into without needing to be in the face of her opponent.

You can check out the completed tier list below along with ESAM's full explanation for his placements from his YouTube channel.
