Update: iDom has now released a video going over his carried tier list picks, which you can check out in the story below.

Everyone here should at least know XSET|iDom as the Capcom Cup 2019 champion for Street Fighter 5, but he's been competing across many major fighting games from the past decade too with success.

The top player and rising New York City scene leader recently put together a sillier tier list idea ranking how much his main characters have "carried" him across Street Fighter 5, Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Mortal Kombat X, Mortal Kombat 11, Injustice, Guilty Gear Strive, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Granblue Fantasy Versus.

For those who may not be aware, people like to claim a fighter can carry a player to success if their strengths more than make up for any deficiencies on the one behind the controller.

Between his most notable SF5 mains, iDom believes he was the one who carried Laura to the top and not the other way around while Poison may have carried him a little bit — though not as much work she put in for him in USF4.

There's only 3 other characters iDom puts as completely carrying him on their backs being Dante and Dormammu in MvCI, who both are / were disgustingly powerful, as well as another former undisputed top tier in Ferry for GBVS.

And then iDom has a handful of characters he tried to carry to success but just wasn't happening including Cody in SF4 and Fused Zamasu from DBFZ.

Many of these picks would likely line up pretty similarly on a tier list for their overall power levels too, but it's still interesting to get some input from a pro who's tried a bunch of different characters and games at tournaments over the years.

You can check out iDom's full carried tier list below, and let us know in the comments if you feel like any of your favorite characters put in extra work to bring in the wins because we all probably have a few.
