Tiers can shape the way players use these characters. Popular fighting games have different tiers based on skill sets and attributes. Notable games like Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, King of Fighter XIV and many more have tiers. Super Smash Bros Ultimate might have tier list based on how they’re used. In Street Fighter V, some player pick Guile, Kolin or Abigail which you can put in a tier list. Sometimes depending on the character you pick can be on the list. Back to Street Fighter V, Abigail is very strong but slow movement. Which tier will Abigail I think it will be D tier.
D tier is below C, B and A which is below average. Guile is C tier and he is a charge character. His Sonic Boom and Somersault give his average damage. Kolin is C tier as well with a cytokinesis moves. Those are three example of Street Fighter V but what about Tekken 7. Tekken 7 characters Jin Kazuma, King and Lucky Chole have tiers.
