The OrionRank was an algorithmic power rankings created by PGStats seeder Barnard's Loop and EazyFreezie for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and later Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It began in 2016, and was designed as an independent ranking meant to catalog 100 players a year, though often produces mid-season rankings with less players. It operated based on a TTS (Tournament Tiering Sheet) that took both national and regional rankings into account, and specialized in non-United States scene coverage.

Aside from national rankings, OrionRank has also ranked the best players in North America, Europe, and Japan. Regional rankings such as the aforementioned have been released following the release of every subsequent yearly ranking.

The rankings have consistently been popular in the community, and was even used by Guinness World Records in a blurb on Ultimate and MkLeo.[1]

Following the release of the 2022 iteration, the OrionRank was retired due to the workload of the project as well as the co-founders' focus on the LumiRank, with several features of OrionRank being added to the new ranking, including its points system, TTS, and regional rankings.[2]
