The world's best Fox competitor in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Moist|Light, has released a new tier list for version 13.0.1 of the game. Characters have been declared to be either top five, top tier, high tier, mid tier or low tier.

Based on how the bottom three categories are labeled as being "not ordered," this seems to indicate that the top 24 challengers have been purposely ordered on Light's tier list. If this is true, then it means that Light believes that his main character, Fox McCloud, is the 16th best character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

It's also indicated by Light that the top five fighters in the current meta are Joker, Pikachu, Aegis (Pyra & Mythra), Wolf and R.O.B. It's not too surprising to see Joker, Pikachu and Aegis so high on a typical competitor's tier list, but it's actually quite rare for Wolf and R.O.B. to be regarded as being this strong compared to other fighters.

Other combatants situated in top tier include Pokémon Trainer, Palutena, Roy, Lucina, Mario, Pac-Man, Snake, Zero Suit Samus, Byleth, Cloud, Inkling, Steve and a few others. The decision to include Byleth and Cloud in top tier was likely influenced by the success of T1|MkLeo and Spargo respectively at tournaments.

The weakest characters in the game are said to be Ganondorf, Dr. Mario, Little Mac and King K. Rool. It isn't too surprising to see any of these characters at the bottom, but King K. Rool is sometimes positioned in mid tier these days.
