Power Ranking, often shortened to PR, are lists that rank the professional and competitive smashers in a particular region in order of perceived skill level. It can be for a state, country, or even the world. They are designed to showcase and honour skilled players, and to encourage competitors to improve. The judgement and presentation of each area's Power Rankings is usually determined by panels of active players in the region's community, who are familiar with each person's abilities. However, the accuracy of the rankings is limited to the knowledge and understanding of the people in these panels. Separate sets of Power Rankings exist for separate games in the Smash Bros. series; rarely do the same players ever appear on multiple lists.
Ontario is currently the only place in the world to hold a power ranking panel similar to that of other Smash games in North America. However, many of the top professionals of the four regions where Smash 64 is most popular in can be found below.
