My tier of fighter favorism as of the end of 2020.

This is Smash fan NinTylo (which means my real name is Tyler, and I put part of my name in the very middle of Nintendo). I'm a person for anime and a lot video gaming in general.

Most of my page is gonna be a W.I.P. based on more of Ultimate's DLC having yet to be fully released.

My Custom Classic Mode: NinTylo Mains

My adversaries (if Classic Mode was customizable like Stage Builder) consist of my Top Five Mains. The Mii Fighters represent me and my favorite costumes. The penultimate battle is against a giant Yoshi, who's been my main since Melee (much less 64). The boss of my route is Rathalos based on my love of dragons no matter the type (besides wyverns).

My Classic Mode Scores

Bold marks my main, favorite route, and highest score, while Italics mark my worst choice, despised route, and lowest score. In the Fighter # section however, Bold marks the Original 8 (who are playable from the start), while Italics mark the original four unlockables in 64 onward. As for the underlining of the scores, (with a few small exceptions here and there) they're scores I won't bother changing with the characters enlisted - unless I have a change of mind every so often.

My Classic Mode tier scores as of 12/20/20.

The tier photo below will be updated with differed scores as with my rankings below after every newer DLC fighter I complete Classic Mode with...

Trivial Theories/Statements

  • If I had a dollar for everyone who's highest Classic Mode scores comes from Yoshi (my main) or sometimes Piranha Plant, I'd be filthy stinkin' rich - at least if no one can figure out how to rack up more than enough points with Mega Man.
  • If you combine Piranha Plant's scoring (Over 600,000 with a perfect) with Rathalos and how high I could seriously score with Wolf and his playable opponents (Over 700,000 - a slightly higher score than Yoshi before his bonus game and boss), then it adds up to a higher Classic Mode score than Yoshi.
    • And Mega Man has now officially proven that, despite fighting Galleom for his penultimate round, and not being QUITE as remarkable as Yoshi or any other character who can score EVERY point in the bonus game - whereas Mega Man at best only has to sacrifice ONE block like the tall one that falls slowly at the beginning that's higher at falling down than the other two - he and, to an major extent, Piranha Plant are able to surpass Yoshi.
  • Trying to reach 9.9 difficulty, all while getting perfects on all six rounds against playable characters are the likeliest when it comes mainly to Wii Fit Trainer (if not her boss - Master Hand/Crazy Hand).
  • As of Patch 9.0.0, it's a complete guarantee that your lowest 9.9 score in Classic Mode will come from Steve.
    • This is based around A) his opponents' low stamina limits in most of his rounds, B) the AI teammates in his second round interfering with your chances of scoring high, and C) like Jigglypuff, Bayonetta, and Terry, he doesn't have a unique boss and instead fights a giant Ridley in the final round (along with two Endermans of himself via his alternate costumes).
  • Try thinking of my Classic Mode score tier list as a Grade Point Average rating system for something like middle school (or even high school) as an example:
  • Smash Ultimate Classic Mode GPA Tier Comparison FANMADE.png

    • Less than 1.8 Million: Stuck behind a grade being below average - Steve.
    • 1.85 Million: Can graduate on time with their class(es) with a little Special Ed - Mario & Jigglypuff. (Both barely)
    • 1.9 Million: Average enough but still need to keep up the pace in order to graduate on time with their class(es) - Dark Pit and (barely) Rosalina & Luma.
    • 1.95 Million: Will officially graduate on time with their class(es) - Lucina and (barely) R.O.B.
    • 2 Million: 3.25 GPA in their class(es) - Ness and (barely) Pokemon Trainer.
    • 2.05 Million: Perfect 4.0 GPA - Ridley and (barely) Lucas.
    • 2.1 Million: Can skip a grade ahead of their class(es) - Wii Fit Trainer and (barely) Peach.
    • 2.15 Million: Can skip THREE grades ahead of their class(es) - Bowser, King K. Rool and (barely) Marth.
    • 2.2 Million: Can go to college early - Wolf and Wario.
    • 2.25 or 2.3 Million: Can graduate from college SUPER early - Yoshi and Piranha Plant
    • 2.4 MILLION or more: Can graduate college SUPER early with incredible honors like a Doctoral's Degree - Mega Man
  • Yoshi has my favorite Classic Mode route based on not only his boss, but also the theme of his route being themed around my favorite class of the Animal Kingdom: Reptiles.
    • Conversely, Byleth has the worst route I've ever had the displeasure of completing, because you and most of your opponents are limited to only 100 STAMINA, and for that matter, his route is all about unfairly screwing you over. (ESPECIALLY since we're all used to PERCENTAGE in Classic Mode, NOT STAMINA!)
      • If I can't count stamina routes though, then my overall worst is Toon Link's no thanks to the HORRENDOUSLY unhelpful AI teammates who sometimes screw you over by accident, not to mention you and your teammates have weak attacks while every opponent has MUCH stronger attacks and are next to IMPOSSIBLE to launch off the screen. (Not to mention you're totally outnumbered in the first and fifth rounds each)
  • I've gotten perfects on every boss at 9.0 difficulty or higher (minus Dracula via his second form at least), but I'd say unless you're REALLY lucky and strongly skilled no less, chances are you're NOT gonna get a perfect on the hands if you don't use a character primarily with a counterattack special. (Cause I have yet to master both hands)
    • Sure, I got a perfect on the hands with Diddy Kong, but to be fair, that isn't really saying much based on having an AI partner for backup (like Donkey Kong).
    • For characters that score the highest on both hands (with or without a perfect)? At a whopping 390,000 with his spam-attacking with his bike, Wario.
