In gaming, a tier list ranks all characters based on the strength of their fighting abilities and their potential to win matches under tournament conditions, assuming equal skill on the part of each player. In this case, a tier list is created via theorycrafting and viewing what goes on in the videos.
This is the current tier list made by Thaddeus Crews, made three years after the previous tier list. Haruhi lost her position of top tier to Ib, now ranking 4th in the S tier, while Nicolas Cage was shifted down to A+ tier. Ib gained her own tier at the top of the list. In addition, Dr. Wily was no longer a Best tier character, but is still a low-tiered character overall. Don Ramon, Scanty & Kneesocks, and Panty & Stocking each got the highest rises on the tier list, moving up three places, followed by Hitler, who rose up two. This is the first tier list where Mama Luigi ranks above the Irate Gamer, and where Frollo ranks above both Street Fighter characters.
