Gavin “Tweek” Dempsey has played a good number of characters in his short time as a top Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player. Though he’s now known for his extremely strong Pokemon Trainer, Dempsey has also experimented with Chrom, Wario, Wolf, Ridley, Roy, and Young Link. Judging by his latest tier list, we may soon see him pick up even more characters.
In particular, it’s surprising to see Dempsey place Mario in his “Broken” tier. As we saw just a few weeks ago in Inktivate’s aggregated Smash Ultimate tier list, the general consensus is that Mario is good but not great. On average, Mario doesn’t even fall inside the top 20 characters. Dempsey, however, places him inside the top 8. This suggests that Dempsey has been studying the plumber and believes that he knows something about the character that others may not. You can see the full list below.

We’ll have to watch both overall tournament results and Dempsey’s character choices in the upcoming weeks to see whether Mario deserves his high rating. In the meantime, support Dempsey by following him on Twitter here and on Twitch here.
