Little Mac Has the Lowest Win Ratio in Super Smash Bros.

Wasn’t he supposed to be one of the most powerful fighters on the roster?

There’s one thing that I hear about Super Smash Bros. for 3DS more than anything else: Little Mac is overpowered. While it’s true that Little Mac has incredible power on the ground, his awful recovery and terrible air attacks really lowers his overall capabilities. This disadvantage is probably very effective, as Super Smash Bros. producer Masahiro Sakurai revealed in Famitsu that Mac has a drastically lower win ratio online compared to other fighters! Check out the full statement below:

For Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the individual character win ratios lined up nicely in a staircase format, but [for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS] one fighter has a significantly low ratio. It’s Little Mac.

Little Mac is a fighter with very pronounced strengths and weaknesses. While he has an enhanced dodge and megaton-level punch for aggressive play, he has very weak jump power and a simple back throw along with a follow-up attack prove to be crippling. It appears that the biggest reason for his low win ratio is because people fall under the assumption that ‘Little Mac is strong!’ and all rush to use him only to get pummeled in return. He gives the impression of being able to win easier than other fighters which leads to more people using him, but in reality, he’s a difficult character to actually continuously win with.

Maybe he isn’t as overpowered as people think! Despite this, Sakurai said that he doesn’t plan on averaging the statistics of every character because he believes that would create a worse gaming experience. Even though we’ll probably never find this out, I’d love to hear who’s averaging the most wins online too!
