Who cares about Akuma? This Street Fighter 5 tier list ranks the power of NPCs in the game like Peter
I don’t want to hear about low tiers until Two P gets buffs
Street Fighter 5 closed out its main roster last year with 45 playable characters, but there’s also a large chunk more that you’re never actually allowed to control.
Fighting game content creator Big Yellow decided he wanted to give those NPC fighters their time to shine and put together a SF5 tier list focused on the Peters of the world.
To kick things off, Big Yellow explains his tiers are indeed based around each NPC’s fighting capabilities though he won’t be including boss characters like Shadow Lady or Master Ryu because they’re built for a much different purpose than the rest of the bot fighters.
There’s actually an F tier here with Two P, who you might recognize from the barrel bonus stage in SF5 as well as getting beat up in Lucia’s intro, since this Final Fight grunt is the only character whose attacks only do a whole 1 damage each — so he’d have to punch Zangief almost 1,100 times before the wrestler would go down.
If you want to know what an A+ tier NPC looks like, Juli is the first one to make that rank because not only does she have some of Cammy’s moves as a Doll, but also a special that works like Rashid’s Eagle Spike that can even combo into itself.
Those who want to know where the rest of the Dolls, Decapre, the Shadaloo grunts, and Peter show up should have some fun with Big Yellow’s full video below.
