Galaxy Fight

God
1) G. Done: Can dodge damn near anything. His Back+C throw is the easiest infinite ever

Top
2) Juri: Fast and she has a plethora of comboes which could end with a stunned opponent
3) Musafar: Excellent damage and his throws can lead to easy juggles
4) Rolf: Hella easy comboes which rack up damage, jet pack double jump is dirty

Mid
5) Alvan: Nice keep away, but piss poor reach without projectiles and he’s screwed if someone closes in on him.
6) Roomi: Fast moves and good comboes, but she lacks versatility and her moves have the longest recovery times in the game, excellent pursuit capabilities

Low
7) Kazuma: Like Rolf without the jet pack and his projectile takes too damn long to execute, but he’s fast and has the 2nd best combo potential behind Juri
8) Gunter: Way too easily punishable and his special moves have long recovery times

Breakers Revenge ( by Buktooth )

S class:
Saizo (best normal moveset for both ground and air, best fireball, best jump in, best cross up, every random button links and combos, gets an insane number of random dizzies for no reason. only missing a reversal)

Sho (easy infinite, fast and cancellable overhead, crazy good reversal, big damage, dive kick and run, most well-rounded character)

A Class:
Tia (toned down sho. worse in almost every way, but still really good. only things she does better than sho are fireball fights and throws)

Condor (plays more like 3s chun/ken than anything else; huge priority, range and damage, and pretty much everything is confirmable into super. the super is an everything-in-one move, and he’s the only good character that has a throw game. would be ranked higher, but loses for free to saizo)

Dao Long (another all-around character. big damage, everything combos into super, NO CHARGE TIME. ground normals are a little crappy, so all you’re really doing is sonic booms)

B Class:
Rila (good normal moves, really fast jump, good reversal. combos and supers are blah)

C Class:
Maherl (has some really good tools like the “hop kick” and super throw, but no big damage combos, and no anti-air at all)
Alsion III (decent, but has too much trouble keeping out the top tiers)

D Class:
Pielle (the combo meter is lying to you when it says jab jab into rekkas combos. it’s blockable. decent offense with pogo and overhead butt, but no good confirmable combos. anti-air is also really spotty)

Ninja Masters

S Class
Goemon, Kasumi, Natsume.
(c’est à celui qui aura l’infini le plus facile à placer….)

S: Torao ( too good – has a parry, instant damaging chains, his escape dash attacks combo, easy damaging desp. moves one of which guard crushes – kind of like a better Gato from KOF XI )
A: Harry Ness, Roche ( both have VERY damaging bnbs with or without meter )
B: Haiji Mibu, Yuiren, Yuiran, Taro ( Haiji has good ass chains and super armor move backed rushdown, but he has problems with Harry, Torao and Rossi – Yuiren and Yuiran have a cancellable parry but that’s all they can rely on to chain to combos – Yuiran seems to be a much better character because her multitude of throw setups means she doesn’t have to rely on hit confirms – Taro has really good tick damage but he’s a big target )
C: Cool ( not very good….relies on throwing slow Black Darts on wakeup and only one good bnb …. charge characters just don’t work very well in this kind of system methinks )

Shaq Fu

( SNES ) ( by 4649/ChibitaJr )
God: Sett Ra, Beast
Good: Mephis, Rajah
Okay: Shaq, Voodoo
Sucks: Kaori

Genesis Shaq Fu tier list:

High – Beast/Colonel
High/Mid – Sett Ra/Kaori/Rajah/Diesel
Mid – Voodoo/Mephis/Leotsu/Nezu
Mid/Low – Auroch/Shaq

Kaori does shitty damage, has only one really useful move ( the three hit autocombo into backdash teleport, which strangely enough is a lot like Beast’s) and a bunch of unsafe stuff ( tornado has mad startup as does her claw fireball, which can also be shielded, divekick is only good against jumpers. her whole game revolves around hit and run essentially, which in this game does not help against Beast and Sett who each can kill you in two or three mistakes, believe it or not.
EDIT: the little bomb of light she throws is kind of useful as well, but doesn’t mean much.

to elaborate on the tiers a little:

Sett has a stupidly good mummy-wrapping geyser move that hits exactly where you’re standing out of the floor ( like Guilty Gear Eddie drills without the skill ), a fireball he can repeatedly cancel into itself, a ridiculously safe psycho crusher / dash type move he can cancel into itself endlessly on block ( and you can’t jump it, nothing beats it on startup when coming out of blockstun from it, all you can do is pray ) and the best normals in the game, arguably. Plus his teleport shift has crazy invincibility for some reason, forward and backward versions.

Beast is equally stupid, having a painful autocombo into teleport-runaway move, a flame breath move than when hitting meaty does INSANE damage, and a ridiculously good roar move that creates a flash that will hit you WHEREVER YOU ARE ON THE SCREEN. i’m not sure who thought he was fair….

Mephis has the best zoning game outside of Sett, what with throwing lightning all over the place, off the screen, and a big ass range on his jumping FP.

Rajah’s HCB+P (spinny swords) is good for forcing people to make mistakes and zoning, and his thunderclap ( f,qcf+p) stops a LOT of stuff. he has Chun-Li lightning legs for some reason ( b+hk ) should someone try and rush him down

Voodoo can repeatedly cancel Eagles into each other if you’re fast (hcf+p) for some odd glitchy reason or other. combine this with voodoo doll for a good zoning game, even though she has little else.

Shaq has…..well, good normals and that stupidly slow spinny blade.

Mai-Otome: Otome Butoushi for PS2 (JP) ( written by I think maybe HeartNana? )

S: Natsuki
A: Miyu, Mai, Arika Ultimate
B: Nina, Lena
C: Nao, Shizuru, Haruka, Arika
D: Akane, Shiho, Nina Ultimate
F: Cat Mikoto

S:

natsuki – she is without doubt the best character in the game. she is the only character in the game whose close strong actually combos from close weak chain. once she caps the combo with close strong (which blows the opponent away), she can start rapid-firing her ridiculously fast far weak. there is actually a long recovery after far weak x 3, but the game allows you to break your combo sequence by pressing guard. and since guarding has next to no recovery in this game, natsuki can keep on doing far weak x 2 > guard > far weak x 2 > guard > … over and over again. the highest combo i’ve had with her is 28 hits. all of this, of course, fills up her super meter really fast as well. she also turns out to have a very good far strong, which tracks very well and also allows her to reset into her close combo.

A:

miyu – she has a close weak x 4 combo that stuns and launches the opponent, which she can follow up with far weak x 2 or strong (alyssa). her far weak is very fast, although not nearly as fast compared to natsuki or nina’s. she also has excellent health, and her super is extremely powerful.

mai – mai’s attacks are relatively slow but they do TONS of damage. her far strong is especially devastating, since they track very well. mai pretty much needs to rely on whiff punishments due to lack of effective combos, but still fares extremely well with most of the cast.

arika ultimate – arika ultimate is very well rounded and has decent combo options both in close range and far range. she doesn’t have any real weakness, and her super is the strongest in the game.

B:

similar to A tier, except that their damage options are not as good. furix thinks nina belongs in A tier just for her ability to fill up her super meter really fast, though.

C:

nao has a decent combo in the distance, but that’s about it. shizuru have a far strong that is relatively fast, and reels the opponent in her range, but other than that she is nothing special. haruka have very powerful attacks, similar to mai, except she has trouble landing most of them since she is very slow. arika just feels crippled compared to her ultimate version, and also has trouble filling up her super bar.

D:

all lack decent combos, and their strongs (both close and far) are way too slow and unreliable. nina ultimate is the worst of the bunch, but is saved from dropping to garbage tier because cat mikoto is just horrible.

F:

cat mikoto is a joke character. worst health, worst damage output in the game.

EHRGEIZ

Tier 1: Matsuda, Tifa

Star Wars Episode III Revenge Of The Sith Versus Mode ( i think Higher Jin wrote these )

Top:

Cin Drallig
General Grievous (Both have attacks that are immune to sabre shunting. Sabre shunting is basically parrying except you can just mash it out and it’ll still work.)

Second:
Count Dooku (force lightning glitch to do big damage, invincible side step, and quickest light strike in the game)
Anakin Skywalker (force lightning glitch to do big damage, more damaging comboes than dooku, and PSYCHO CRUSHER super)

Middle:
Mace Windu
Obi Wan

Bottom:
Darth Vader
Obi Wan (Old)

Joke Tier:
Serra Ketto (She can be punished for missed throw attempts; since she does a huge flip if she misses. Everyone else basically has like a SPD missed throw animation. Her attacks are really slow and predictable. Oh and she has a really hard time comboing her critical strike which means she does dick for damage.)

SVC Chaos SNK VS Capcom
 ( i think Return Of Shiki and Buktooth wrote this )

RotB Iori is right under Zero and Geese (DAMN HELL INSANE SPEED, COMBOABILITY…FIRST REKKA OF HIS IS INVINCIBLE!!! )

It’s almost impossible to tier SvC because there are just so many layers of brokenness.

Zero is at the very top with Geese because of his infinites, but even WITHOUT his infinites:

Pros:
-Small size combined with high jump, triangle jump, great foot speed (basically exactly like Choi)
-Some of the best poking normals in any fighter
-CYBER ELVES…can heal when he knocks you down or call out projectile assists to lock you down or turn you into a helpless Met
-UNBLOCKABLE Blowfish Cyber Elves (the bombs). Sets up obvious traps
-Dash super is very fast, invincible during slide, and CAN HIT LOW
-Mix-up game is insane
-Buster shot (uncharged) is weak but has virtually no recovery
-Low recovery on just about all his (uncharged) specials, really
-Can charge all his specials…not really useful but it gives his more variety
-Exceed is an UNBLOCKABLE PROJECTILE that does decent damage, ups his speed, attack, defense, HEALS and slows down the timer (so he can make a comeback)
-Shield Boomerang does stupid things to big characters

Cons:
-Sometimes small size limits his range
-Can’t take hits
-Can only use 3 of each Cyber Elf per MATCH (if he had unlimited use of Cyber Elves he would be the most broken character in fighting game history, period)
-Demands above-average execution and strategy (he isn’t as easy to use as Geese)

Here’s my tiers:

GOD–
Zero (See above)
Geese (Has no flaws, does too much damage, controls space, infinites)

Near GOD–
RotB Iori (Unfathomable speed, invincibility, combos that HURT)

Top (in no particular order)–
Goenitz (the premiere zoning and runaway character)
Demitri (zoning, combos, invincibility)
Violent Ken (rushdown, ridiculous combos)
Guile (Invincible supers and flash kick, sonic booms)
Tessa (Zoning, glitch-ness, unblockable traps)
Terry (Can combo out the ass, rushdown)

Upper (in no blah blah)–
Kim
Iori
Kyo
Mai
Mr. Karate
Chun-Li
Ryu
Sagat

Upper-Mid–
Earthquake
Choi
Mars People
Dhalsim
Shiki
Ryo
Akuma

Lower-Mid–
Vega (Claw)
Balrog (Boxer)
Ken
Kasumi
Genjuro
Dan

Low–
M. Bison (Dictator)

Practicing Dummy–
Hugo

zero had perfect zoning game; lagless fireballs to make them jump into anti air twirly spear (or tigerknee twirly spear into infinite if you were fancy), crazy range on low D which was really fast AND unable to be punished with GCFS

when you do get in, zero can GCFS into throw, then make you get up into unblockable bomb, then infinite you off of that

people mentioned most of the good geese points, but also he can just build up to level 3 really quickly and get into maximum mode, and then from there he can do like 60% chip or something with 3 raging storms which you can’t do anything about. from there he just has to build one more meter (with kara cancel low C into reppuken, only takes like 3 seconds and is hard to deal with) and he’s back in maximum mode raging storming you again

chun can super through fireballs for a ton of damage, and the ability to get through projectile keepaway is a total must-have in this game. her no-meter combo does a crapload of damage (low B’s, df+B xx spinning bird kick, link dp+K), she can combo her exceed off of like anything, and buffering moves into her command throw is like one of the only ways to fight GCFS in this game. anti-air low D works fine, anti-air df+B xx spinning bird kick into dp+k is even better

Psychic Force 2012

Top- Wong, Emilio (Both are tied for the rank of number one)

Lower Top- Burn, Kieth

High- Setsuna, Patty

Middle- Might, Gudeath, Carlos, Genshin, Regina

Low- Wendy

Bottom- Gates

Ok let me explain my tier placings a little bit. Wong is just a monster. To be blunt, he’s just a flat out cheater. He has incredible defensive capabilites along with awesome mindgame potential. To sum up Wong in a sentence. Teleporting is gay. He can combo his golden sword straight into another one if the first caused a wall bounce then do the second part of the move where he calles all the smaller swords to impale his opponent. Yes the combo is plausible in a real match. It’s all about mindgames with Wong and he can pull it off. If a Wong player nails this combo it can take nearly half your life bar.

His long range strong attack is another great mindgame tool. Throw it in another direction then cause it to reappear behind your opponent. A very nice trick. You can’t spam it, but it will keep them guessing. His split image teleport is great when you want to dodge techniques, but not suffer from barrier hit stun. He can also buffer his psychic attacks from his teleports, so its possible to throw out a golden sword almost immediately after you teleport.

He also has a teleport that he can do after he gets knocked back. He can do this from anything. Even a throw! So you could throw him, he telpeorts instead of doing a retreat barrier and then he combos you. Or he could just mindgame you and and dash away. When you try to rush him or dash away he sticks a golden sword down your throat. By the way, that sword does great damge and has fairly quick start up time. I’m pretty sure it’s safe on block too, meaning if your opponent uses a barrier to defend themselves they can’t retaliate fast enough because Wong can just defend himself or push his attack. By the way. HE CAN FREEZE TIME!!! So if you only have a little bit of health left he just hyper chrage then time freeze. Then you can kiss your ass good bye when he grabs you. So you are forced to stay on him, which plays right into his hands.

Primal Rage ( by hanzo hasashi @ MKK )

Upper Tier

Chaos
Talon

Mid tier

Diablo
Sauron
Armadon
Blizzard

Low Tier

Vertigo

Fighting Masters ( by genocide – rare megadrive fighter! )

God – is Valgasu (the boss)

I’d also put Dio (the plant) and Grinder (the robot) with Uppercut and Rotundo ( top tier ).

SLAUGHTER SPORT (aka Tongue of the Fatman, Mondu’s Fight Palace):

Top – Braniac/Robo Chic, Buff/Stump
Mid – Mondu, Weezil/Guano, Ramses/El Toro, MC Fire/Rex, Bonopart/Skinny, Spidra/Webra
Low – Sheba/Edwina

Mondu – Could go in the Top as well, as you can kill your opponent with one hit (actually a bounce). But because of his size makes him easy to hit, and the recovery time for his bounce is slow.

COSMIC CARNAGE: (aka Cyber Brawl)

Top – Naruto, Cylic, Talmac
Mid – Zena-Lan, Yug, Tyr, Deamon
Low – Naja

CC is also the 1st fighter to have a Groove system, by letting you select the armor type….

Survival Arts ( JoshTheFunkDoc I think wrote this )

Top tier = Hiryuu
High = Viper, Tasha
Mid = Gunner
Low = the rest

Hiryuu has an invincible dash that he can cancel straight into his DP – press d/b,u+Short (as that version is safe against most characters). The dash can also cross up (even in the corner!), giving him an insane left/right mixup. Not only that, but he has the slowest-moving projectile ever, AND great anti-air with the DP and j.roundhouse – thus, once you toss a shuriken, the opponent is forced to just try to block you. He can walljump, and jump 5 or 6 times, and j.roundhouse is a good crossup for when they’re about to block a shuriken. He may even be able to use his dash as a reversal, I’m not sure. He beats everyone, period.

Viper is good mainly for his spin kicks (PP and KK). The KK is better in the air, as it can cross up and it hits on the way down, but the PP is way better on the ground. This move flies over low kicks and such, has priority over other pokes when spaced properly, and is safe. He also has a very good set of normals by this game’s standards. He is helped by stages with guns; every character has a long-ranged high/low with the gun (crouch shot, jump back shot), but Viper can cancel his shots into quick spin kicks to stay close and continue on offense. Can hold his own with anyone.

Tasha only has a few good moves – DP (highest priority, safe at the right range), j.fierce (almost unbeatable), and slide (safe at max range). She has no real bad matchups, not even Hiryuu – her DP can get out of his dash crossups and he can’t really beat j.fierce.

Gunner is a boring decent keepaway character – midair MP shot is nice (if it hits, follow up with roundhouse shot for chip), as is tiger knee’d air HP shot. He has a fighting chance vs. most everyone but completely dies to Hiryuu.

Hanna has one neat special which works kinda like Jax’s earthquake, but doesn’t need a charge and knocks down. Not much else though.

Many people who have played this game think Mongo is pretty cheap, as he is always the first opponent in 1P and he has some stuff that takes getting used to – mainly, a missile move that crosses up and can instant kill you by itself. Really though, he’s all gimmicks – it’s easy to hit him out of the missiles, and he can’t mix up sides with them either. If he had any decent normals, or any anti-air at all, he would be pretty good, but he doesn’t and isn’t.

Kane has a pretty good j.roundhouse. His rushes seem like good pokes/whiff punishers, but I’m not sure how safe they are. Nothing else interesting, really.

Santana has an 80% combo that you won’t get the chance to land. Again, j.roundhouse is very solid, as is low fierce for anti-air. hcf+P can punish Hiryuu’s DP for crazy damage, but he has so many other tools that you still lose this matchup.

Bloody Roar 4 ( by maybe emblemlord? )

God Tier: Uranus , Reiji, Nagi, Ryoho and Mana, Ryoho the dragon (This tier could be further divided but, they are all too damn good so w/e. I honestly think Reiji and Nagi are better then Uranus.)

Top Tier: Yugo, Shina, Xion, Uriko

High Tier: Shenlong, Long, Stun, Kohryu (Shenlong could be in top tier and Stun could be lower or higher. Both are debatable IMO. Not too sure on Kohryu, but it felt like a good place to put him.)

Mid Tier: Alice, Bakaryu, Jenny

Bottom: Gado (He sucks ass. Slow, and predictable. Very little mix-ups.)

One Must Fall 2097

God Tier
– Electra, its jump punch and low fierce have too much priority, and in Tournament Mode the low fierce is a one button infinite if your bot has enough arm speed and your pilot has enough agility. Its throw in Rehit mode is godlike, as well.

Top Tier
– Gargoyle, it has the only real SRK-type move in the game, can float, stop most anti-airs with its divebomb and if your execution is good it can “tigerknee” the Wing Charge for a Honda-like torpedo move with no recovery.
– Jaguar, Shoto principle basically. It has controllable projectiles in Hyper mode and its flip throw is one of the few moves that can beat Gargoyle’s SRK. It also has some pretty easy combos after its throw in Rehit mode.
– Katana, a fully invincible move, great agility and great priority, especially on its standing jab which not only serves as an anti-air but has the potential to get you dizzy in Rehit mode off of it.

Upper Tier
– Chronos (master of all time). It can’t be cornered and its normal move set is kind of Electra-lite, but its air game is not that great and its projectile is hard to get to work for you.
– Flail, dominating anti-air game and great damage, it’s like Zangief and Dhalsim put together; however, it’s a little hard to play with, especially when your pilot’s agility is low.
– Nova, really stupid trap and heavy moveset, but it’s pretty much the equivalent of a beatdown deck in Yu-Gi-Oh; if you don’t start winning early on, you’re probably not going to win, period.

Mid Tier
– Shredder, good pressure game and easy-to-manage normals, plus fun combos in the corner. Its throw is, frankly, crap, and its headbutt will kill you unless you do the shadow version.
– Thorn, a real powerhouse in terms of agility and priority if you get the hang of its awkward moves, but has a problem with safety and recovery time. It’s also notable for being able to beat every CPU opponent in the game with one move (jump back speed kick).
– Pyros, it’s basically a combo machine which has a hard time dealing with pressure. Its kicks (or, more appropriately, flame attacks) are REALLY slow.

Low Tier
– Shadow. The only thing this robot has going for it is a lot of fancy-schmancy chain combos. Its shadows will kill you if they are blocked, its throw is complete and utter shit, and it has no pressure game to speak of. It has an easy infinite if your pilot’s agility is high, but you’ll never land it. (note: Shadow is slightly better in old versions because its shadow grab move can be used as an SRK; it hits on the way up. For unknown reasons, this was removed in v2.0.)

Eternal Fighter Zero

FFD’s top ten

1. Unknown
She can fight close and away, build meter fast, chips like a demon(no pun intended), and has a great unblockable move. There is nothing she can’t do IMO. I don’t like playing vs her, but I gotta recognize her potential.

2. Akane
When the game is in her pace, it’s over. Incredibly fast A attacks, awesome crossover, and none of her supers are useless.

3. Mio
Her lvl3 might be useless, but majority of her moves cover so much areas and she can get combos near everywhere on the screen. Has a lot of invincible moves too.

4. Shiori
I ain’t gonna lie, if I didn’t see the character’s potential I wouldn’t have played her. Grab leads damage in corners, A and B snowman are great rushing tools, and too many safe moves.

5. Mayu
I see her as less crazy but more annoying version of Akane. Rush super gets ’em to corner FROM corner, and one of 3 characters who have grabs that can be followed up without IC.

6. Makoto
Very good specials, even though normals are kind of bad IMO. Her supers are A class, too. She has almost as many ways of crossing over as Akane.

7. Misaki
Shitty lvl 3s, and she’s pretty slow generally, but man, when she got you with combos it hurts like hell. Her BS stuff like autoguard on C attacks, air fireball super or dish supers are REALLY BS, even though her weak stuff are pretty weak.

8. Misio
Incredible character that can do pretty much everything but runaway, IMO. Comboable grabs, fast overhead(when lightning charged), cool mid-field combos, and IMO one of the two best hidden lvl3s of the game. Her walking speed is pretty bad though.

9. Kano
The fastest meter building character. No useless super. Charge cancels. These are untapped potentials the way I see it. US needs a Kano specialist.

10. Mai
She’s one of the harder characters to pull OTG combos, so it works really well on her favor(cutting half the combos out). AWESOME B attacks, very good reversal(rdp+C), and one of the best hidden lvl3 supers of the game. She can do OTGs, and she can poke like hell. Often it’s easy to see her building opponent’s guard handicaps. Only problem I see with her is that she is kind of on the slower side.

linalys’s top ten

1. Misaki
All those japanese replays can’t be wrong, and watching them I don’t doubt it. Her rushdown has to be the safest in the game. People take throws willingly to avoid the combos and to let the guard bar cool down a bit. Combos last until 30% power, combos come off any real hit, and they all hurt.

2. Mio
Incredibly versatile.

3. Ikumi
An insanely fast and pretty mobile grappler? Ok. You have damaging combos too? Oh my. You have wakeup mixup options? To the top tier you go!

4. Sayuri
Quite possibly the most well rounded character in efz? Command grab check. Projectile check. Good normals check. Some form of overhead check. Unnecessary but nice to have high/low-all-in-one counter? check.

5. Mayu
Damage, high/low/left/right/grab mixup, damage, size, and damage.

6. Ayu
Damage, mixup options, good normals.

7. Kano
Damage in corner, projectiles for every occasion, charge cancel is pretty cool (if not the most useful thing), good range.

8. Shiori
Good normals, can switch between rushdown and keepaway sorta well enough to annoy the opponent into mistakes.

9. Mai
Maybe not top tier, but definitely at the very least mid tier and to have to choose 10/22 I’ll definitely head into mid tier territory. Bunny assists are cool, bunny will absorb a hit, I still think her overhead is one of the best in the game.

10. Unknown
Her abilities are mostly unknown to me, but I respect her from what little I’ve seen.
