The one-winged angel from Final Fantasy 7 finally arrives in SSBU, which can only mean one thing - balance changes. Find out who got buffs and nerfs in the latest update.

Version 10.0.1 patch notes & balance changes: Sephiroth is now playable in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Everything about the Sephiroth DLC in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is hype. We finally have more Final Fantasy songs after the disappointing 2 on Midgar, Northern Cave is an excellent homage to a classic, and the big bad even got his own limited-time boss fight for early access.

A lot of the consistent excitement during updates centers around patch notes and balance changes, especially for the more competitive crowd. Top tiers get nerfed and some even get better, while less viable low/mid-tier fighters receive some much-deserved boosts to frame data, damage, and other key attributes.

Learn which characters were the biggest winners and losers with the version 10.0.1 patch notes!
