One of the best players in the world shares his thoughts on the current character rankings.

Raito Japan Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 9.0.1 Tier List

Raito single-handedly made Duck Hunt a tournament threat back in the days of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The defensive Japanese pro upset top player after player like ZeRo in his first major North American tournament. Fast forward to Ultimate and Raito remains one of the best in the world.

His signature can setups and tricky Wild Gunman, frisbee combos frequently turn heads on Twitter. Raito is one of those people that makes his unpopular character look not only fun to watch, but also play.

The meticulous nature of his playstyle is a result of vast experience and analysis. Compare Japan's SSBU meta to American tier lists and you'll immediately notice major differences because of varied character specialists and approaches to the game across both regions.

The Duck Hunt main explains his high/top tier character placements.
