The SSBBRank is a power ranking that rates the top professional players in the international tournament scene for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Compiled by the community platform and crew CLASH Tournaments, SSBBRank was first created at the end of 2014, as a response to the SSBMRank formulated by Melee It On Me two years prior. SSBBRank 2014 only included players that had taken part in at least one American tournament beginning with Apex 2013, as many of the panelists resided in the United States. As a result, some notable, international players that did not travel to the United States during this time period were absent from the rankings, such as Nietono, Edge, and Choco.

Owing to the release of Smash 4 in 2014 and the subsequent dormancy of the Brawl tournament scene, successive, annual lists were not created for the SSBBRank until 2017. In 2017, a new set of rankings for the 2016 and 2017 season of tournaments was released as compiled by the Brawl Bois (now Brawl Central) community. This iteration only featured 20 top players due to the scene's major decrease in size compared to 2014. Also unlike the 2014 iteration, international players were featured on the list regardless of them attending an American tournament or not. After this, Brawl Central would continue to produce rankings. The 2018-2019 SSBBRank came out in early 2020, covering the years after the 2016-2017 ranking and using the same methodology. In 2022, Brawl Central released the 2020-2022 SSBBRank, which cut down the number of ranked players to 15 and didn't include international players, like the original 2014 ranking. This ranking had different panelists and used a different methodology compared to the previous Brawl Central rankings. The following year -- 2023 SSBBRank -- not only saw the ranking's first-ever single-year ranking, but it also reverted several changes made to the 2020-2022 rankings, which includes reintroducing international players to the list and reverting the number of ranked players to 20.
