Japan SSBM Rank 2018 is a power ranking in the vein of SSBMRank that lists Japan's 50 best Super Smash Bros. Melee players. It was created by Falpan, one of the point calculators of the previous rankings, and posted on his blog on January 13th, 2019.

The ranking was calculated based on a point system. A Smasher's ranking at a tournament would be awarded points using the following formula:

((800 - (ranking / number of tournament participants) × 800) + top 4 bonus points) × tournament weight

The top 4 bonus points were given as follows:

  • 1st place: 400 points
  • 2nd place: 200 points
  • 3rd place: 80 points
  • 4th place: 30 points

Tournament weight was determined by the number of top players attending the tournament based on the Japan SSBM Rank 2017. Exceptions included SFAT, Shunsuke and Sheik who were all treated as top 10 players.

  • Rank 1-10: 9 points
  • Rank 11-30: 3 points
  • Rank 31-50: 1 point

The total number of points determined the multiplier used for the tournament's weight.


The following tournaments were considered for the ranking:

Smashers who participated in at least three tournaments were considered for the ranking.

A Smasher's top 5 point scores would be added together to determine their point total, which was then compared to that of other Smashers. In the case that a player had less than 5 point scores, the formula: total × 5 / number of participations was used. This point system was used to determine the top 50 and to rank places 11 through 50. The top 10 players were re-ranked based on their results in sets against other top 10 players. The re-ranking was based off of the previous years' rules, but the exact details were not given. The matchup chart below lists the players in order of points gained, while the top 50 ranking shows the new order after re-ranking.
