Sonic Match-up Chart for Smash 4

It’s not often that we get to see a tier list of this nature. What we have here is a chart, that specifies how one character performs against the rest of the cast (in a very general manner mind you).

This list was put together by Wesley ‘Circa 6WX’ Alexander, one of the premier Smash 4 players from America. The list sorts out the characters from those who do well against Sonic to those who don’t.

He’s even made little categorizations for the characters and you can find it all in tabular format below and also the original JPEG from his Twitter post.
