A power rankings, often shortened to PR, is a list that ranks 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.

Super Smash Bros.[edit]

Not many places in the world used to hold a power ranking panel similar to that of other Smash games. In recent years with the popularity of Smash 64 growing this has changed however and most regions in the US and Canada now have their own Power Rankings.

Global[edit]

  • 64 League Rankings is a global ranking, but only lists players who attended a tournament in North America, omitting lots of Japanese and South American top players.

Brawl[edit]

Since Brawl's release, a lot of separate power rankings have been released for Melee and Brawl. Since 2014, however, mostly due to the release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Brawl's tournament scene has drastically decreased, and most rankings have been discontinued.
