The official Japanese tier list is based on the Japanese metagame of competitive Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Similar to the European tier list, there are no differences in gameplay between the North American, European, and Japanese versions of the game. However, the metagame of Japan is radically different from that of America and Europe (especially the stage list, which is only composed of Final Destination, Smashville, and Battlefield), leading to significantly different tier results.

The list is current as of December 16, 2011.

Differences from the BBR tier list[edit]

There are many differences between the NTSC and Japanese tier lists due to a different metagame. Ganondorf is not dead last; Zelda is over twenty places higher (sharing her spot with Sheik, neither having individual placements); Pikachu is significantly lower; and Fox and Pit also both rose over eight places higher.

The following chart shows the change between each character' NTSC and Japanese tier placements, as well as their change in tier letter. As the NTSC and Japanese tier lists have different tier names and different numbers of places in the list (NTSC has 38, while Japanese has 36), this list does not show the exact change by percentile or number of tiers.
