FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, LITTLE MAC IS BAD, BUT NOT SO BAD THAT HIS BEST MATCHUP IS MOSTLY EVEN. THIS IS ONE OF GANONDORF'S WORST MATCHUPS IN THE GAME, AND LET ME EXPLAIN WHY.

Little Mac possess massive speed, and great damage input, 2 things that Ganondorf specifically struggles with big time. Little Mac has been nerfed slightly, and Ganondorf buffed, but he is still going to be pummeled around by the opponent. Most of Little Mac's moves either come out faster or are stronger. Ganon's fastest moves come out on frame 7. Little Mac's jab comes out on frame 1. Little Mac's counter has invincibilty on frames 4-5, and counterattacks frames 5-27, so the move is fairly easy to connect, and Ganondorf's strength will turn against him. Up-B out of shield only takes 3 frames delay, so Ganondorf can't put proper pressure on shields like he normally can.

I do want to be fair to Ganondorf however. A lot of Ganondorf's moves are now harder to punish than Smash4, and his new powerful smash attacks can easily catch an unsuspecting Little Mac off guard. A missed or even unlucky neutral special with 231 total frames at full charge, 123 being the charging animation. Ganon's Warlock Punch comes out on frame 70, meaning in this case at least, Ganon has WAY better framedata (I looked this up at https://ultimateframedata.com/little_..., and https://ultimateframedata.com/ganondo..., go ahead and factcheck me)

All in all, even though Ganondorf is a much more formidable foe than smash4, I still think it's Little Mac 6/Ganondorf 4.

I think Ganondorf is worse than Little Mac and the single worst character in Ultimate.

Ganoncide was nerfed and Ganon's up smash is easier to punish now. Yes Little Mac's jab and counter are faster than Ganon's entire moveset. Both characters lack projectiles so either fighter has to approach and Ganondorf's high damage output can make Little Mac's counter kill early and Ganondorf's aerials are not too hard for Mac to punish, however flame choke ignores Little Mac's super armor smash attacks.

Yeah I say this is Little Mac's best matchup overall.

Ganondorf 4 / Little Mac 6
