I've seen a lot of Beta tier listings online for the new Super Smash Bros. What I found was that some were a lot more accurate than others, so me and a couple others found a few tier listings and using them and our own experience, made a tier list with somewhat generalized categories. We're calling it the "Height Ranking", since the tiers are based off height instead of letter grades. The characters are listed within sub-categories. They are NOT IN ORDER within those categories thus giving only a general bias of how good a character is in a competitive scenario. This is unofficial and will continue to be updated as more and more official (and otherwise) tier listings are released. Here are the sub-categories and their meaning.

TIERS
Top Tier: Highest tier.
Very High Tier: Not quite top tier, but still extremely good.
High Tier: Fighters that aren't top tier material, but are still well above average.
Mid-High Tier: Above average.
Mid Tier: Average.
Mid-Low Tier: Not bad, but not as good for a competitive scenario as those ranked higher.
Low Tier: Not horrible. Still usable for battling outside of home, but it should be more challenging to win.
Very Low Tier: Chances are you will seldom find these go far in an official tournament.
Bottom Tier: Lowest tier.
TBD: To be decided, for characters that cannot be ranked at this time.

Okay, Here's where we ranked the fighters:

Top:
Diddy Kong
Sheik
Zero Suit Samus
Rosalina & Luma
Yoshi
Sonic
Lucario

Very High:
Captain Falcon
Greninja
Pikachu
Fox
Villager
Mario
Ness

High:
Shulk
Robin
Marth
Link
Pit
Peach

Mid-High:
Lucina
Duck Hunt
Dark Pit
Toon Link
Bowser Jr
Falco

Mid:
Bowser
ROB
Mega Man
Olimar
Jigglypuff
Luigi

Mid-Low:
Wario
King Dedede
Pac-Man
Mii Brawler

Low:
Little Mac
Palutena
Ike
Kirby

Very Low:
Samus
Zelda
Mr. Game and Watch
Meta Knight
Mii Gunner
Ganondorf

Bottom:
Donkey Kong
Dr. Mario
Charizard
Wii Fit Trainer
Mii Swordfighter

TBD:
Mewtwo

This is just what we decided, take this with a grain of salt! Any character can be good if you're skilled with them! If you like the Height Ranking method, please use it to spread it's popularity! I'll keep updating the list, you can comment, but we may not use your ideas. The best way you can put in your opinion is by making your own tiers and commenting a link!

The tier lists we looked at for a general idea of where fighters were placed for this list were:

Lucario in top??
Trishkebac0n (2015-03-19 18:24:04)
Throughout the other tier rankings we looked at, Lucario was consistently given an extremely high ranking, so he was put in the "Top Tier". Captain Falcon was also going to be Top at one point, but he didn't have as high of an overall ranking and thus was given a lower rank. Usually Yoshi, Sonic and Lucario are in a lower tier, but they were boosted due to being consistently within a top tier ratio. As I said in the thing, take this with a grain of salt, I didn't take tournament statistics to make this

WiiGi's R.O.B has appeared. Mid tier'd apparently, but I think otherwise.
