Meta Knight has a really good move set, disjointed hit boxes, and frame 2 moves. His neutral game involves his fair, bair, nair, side b, neutral b, down b, d tilt, and f tilt. He has all of these great options and not to mention an outstanding recovery with 5 jumps. So why is he midtier? One word. Damage. MK doesn't know how to give damage. He has great kill options like f smash, up smash, and up b. He can never use them though because he can never get his opponent to kill percent. I find it taking at least a minute to get my opponent to 50%. Seriously, look up his attack stats. Most of his attacks do under 5 damage and even though he can string aerials together very well, his combos can only reach around 15%. Also he lost his greatest tool of all. His neutral b. It used to be a multihit attack that got easy stage control and pressured shields with easy. Meta Knight is a really fun character to use, and it's a shame to see him go from a tier of his own in brawl to a low midtier in ultimate.
