Over the years, Steve has become quite a controversial character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. There’s been a number of discussions about potentially banning Steve from competitive play due to the character’s domination within the meta thanks to players like ZETA|acola and 26R|Onin.
Recently, the second best Steve user in the world, Onin, released a match up chart for Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. What’s interesting about this match up chart is that it indicates quite a few losing match ups for the Minecraft rep.
According to Onin, Steve’s worst match ups are against Shulk, Zero Suit Samus, Sonic, and Pokémon Trainer. Onin has indicated with his match up chart that Steve “hard loses” to these characters.
Steve also apparently has losing match ups to Cloud, Sephiroth, Sora, Pyra & Myhthra, and Olimar. After that, Steve only has 11 match ups Onin considers to be even.
Against the rest of the roster, Steve has either winning or “hard winning” match ups. Indeed, tournament results definitely indicate that Steve is a top tier contender in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s competitive scene.
Still, it is interesting to see that Steve, a character that some people have wanted to ban, has losing match ups. Check it all out in the match up chart below:
