This thread will describe the top 10 characters in Smash Ultimate with the most potential, whether it is to be much better than they were before, to have top tier potential, or both. There are three rules:
- No newcomers! It is not easy to place down the viability of a newcomer since that character has never been in a previous Smash game. The only exception will be the Echo Fighters of veterans (like Chrom, Daisy, and Dark Samus), even if that character's original counterpart is part of the E3 demo.
- It must be a character that isn't from the E3 demo. If that was so, then it would be too easy, as you slap on characters like Pokemon Trainer, Little Mac, Ike, Ganondorf, etc. You use information that you already know judging from existing footage or what we know of the game's engine.
- Using the Nintendo UK footage as evidence is acceptable. The Nintendo UK footage, which has gameplay footage of K. Rool, Chrom, and Dakr Samus, features a few notable changes from the E3 demo to it. This includes a less exaggerated Balloon Knockback, slightly less landing lag in directional airdodges (could make wavedashing a better movement option, but not to the same degree as in Melee), and less exaggerated smoke effect.
