FADV|Packz has released a tier list for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. Characters are grouped into the S, A+, A, B+, and B tier categories.

As it is common with many other tier lists, Akuma is seen at the very top of the list. Akuma has dominated Street Fighter 5's meta since his release in Season 2.

Seth appears to be the second strongest character right now. This no doubt has something to do with his ability to change his jump arc on a whim and then get pressure if the opponent blocks. Packz has previously commented that Seth would probably be dominating offline Capcom Pro Tour events if not for the tournament cancellations in 2020.

Rashid, Cammy, and Urien can also be located in the S tier category. Notably, Rashid, and Cammy have received numerous nerfs up to this point but still appear to be very strong.

Fighters like G, Zeku, Kolin, M. Bison, Poison, Ibuki, Menat, and R. Mika are listed as being A+ characters. More fighters appear in this category of Packz's tier list than any other.

Sakura, Cody, Zangief, Ken, Kage, Birdie, and Falke have been placed in A tier. Meanwhile, Lucia, Gill, Ed, and Juri can be found in the B+ category.

The five weakest characters in the game according to Packz are Alex, F.A.N.G, Nash, Ryu, and Sagat.
