    Instead of using vague terms like "top tier" and "high tier" it might be a good idea to be a bit more concrete, like top 5, top 10, top 15, top 20 etc. Mr. Game & Watch is clearly not top 5, yet it doesn't seem too implausible to put him somewhere in top 15. Is top 15 top tier? Could be argued...

    He mentioned in the video that Pikachu is probably 45:55 rather than 40:60, timestamped: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fowbBCOrDto&feature=youtu.be&t=4595 I don't 100% agree with everything but it seems like a fairly good MU chart overall. Mario in even is a spicy take.

    Isn't that the case for all potential top 3 character in this game, though? We're not really seeing people flocking to other potential top 3 characters (although, admittedly, more than Pikachu).

    Pikachu seems to be considered a top 3 character by many top players (see, for instance, Dabuz, Tweek, and ESAM), at least US top players. Also, more top players are considering Shulk a top 5-10 character, interestingly enough. With Cosmos switching to Pikachu we could start seeing more Pikachu...

    To be fair, Cosmos used to be a Pikachu main in Smash 4.

    I think it would be hard to design King K. Rool and Donkey Kong in ways to make them viable at top levels without also being toxic. I could see Ike being somewhat viable and not too toxic with a few buffs (even right now he's probably high-mid and somewhat decent). We know from Smash 4 that...

    Cosmos Corrin MU chart. People saying Corrin is good because Cosmos beat Dabuz, well... Apparently she wins versus Rosalina and goes even versus Olimar. If you look at the rest of the MU chart it's pretty clear that she's a bad character, with Big Disadvantage against some of the best characters...

    That's actually a combination of charts, the Public Tier list, and the PGR Tier list. If you look at just the charts (combined players' opinion and opponents' opinion) it looks like this: https://www.smashtierlist.com/f80cfb1b40d4882051b92c6fdc787e81993276ca309c1a450a3b2d2199c2a37e/ Some...

    It's his old Smash 4 main (before he switched to Corrin) so he should be able to pick up Pikachu fairly easily. Hard to tell if he'll actually stick to it, but he should be able to if he's dedicated enough.

    MkLeo made a tier list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1ISJS1nKQc Some notes: Top tier: Peach/Daisy the best, Pikachu #2, Joker #3, Wario #4, Zero Suit Samus #5, Pokémon Trianer #6, Mr. Game & Watch #7, Pac-Man #8, Palutena #9, Inkling #10, Mario #11, Lucina #12. In high tier, we see...

    The biggest nerf is probably the reduced knockback on nair, getting kills with nair will be much harder now, some calculations I've seen say it kills around 26% later, which is huge. She seems overall nerfed, with some nice (but not amazing or anything) buffs. My initial impression is that she's...

    You forgot Inkling, who is an incredibly strong and versatile character with busted moves, one of the best recoveries in the game, and who actually beats several other top tiers, while mostly losing to less common characters. One could make a case for Shulk as well, I suppose. I see him...

    He also could've jumped to the right instead of straight up, so yeah, this one is on ESAM. Overall having a hitbox is way better, most of the time you won't save people with Quick Attack unless you mess up.

    From what I've seen of Shulk, I think he's always been better than Lucina in this game, but people seem to have been reluctant to accept this because of Smash 4. For context, in Smash 4 Shulk was a mid tier with "potential". In Ultimate he's a top tier that's hard to master, so not many players...

    Maister has it as even, I think G&W might win still but I could see it being even, which I guess means Cosmos might actually bring out Corrin versus Maister at some point for the surprise factor.
