List Rules This is not a tier list! Vote up your favorite characters you're most excited to play as (even if they're not a newcomer.)

Now that every character from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch has been revealed, let's rank them! This is a list of all characters in Smash Bros. Ultimate, including pictures and information about which game franchise they represent. The three newest entries were announced at the final Smash Direct in November 2018. They are Ken from Street Fighter, Incineroar from Pokemon Sun and Moon, and most surprising of all, Piranha Plant, from the Mario Universe. Who are all the new characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Including the three mentioned above, new entries include Daisy, Chrom, Dark Samus, Inkling, Isabelle, Simon Belmont, Richter, King K. Rool, and of course, Ridley.

It was announced that more fighters will come in the future, but who will the 6 DLC characters be in Smash Brothers Ultimate? Will it be Banjo and Kazooie, a Nintendo staple that now belongs to Microsoft? What about Geno, the fan favorite wizard from Super Mario RPG? We can speculate all we want, but we'll have to wait and see what Nintendo goes with when it comes to these 6 DLC fighters.

For now, vote up who you think is the best character in Smash Bros. Ultimate. This isn't a tier list, but rather a ranked list of who the favorite Smash Bros. Ultimate characters are. Now, check out the top Smash Ultimate players in the world, and see which characters they main!
