Tier B (13)

Meta Knight is a starter character in Super Smash Flash. He shares a slot with Kirby, and can swap out at any time with his neutral attack. All of his attacks involve swinging his Galaxia sword around. He was confirmed to appear in this game just before the first Brawl trailer was released, making him one of two Brawl newcomers to make their debut in this game.

Meta Knight is ranked 13th on the tier list, solidly in the middle. Meta Knight has one of the best recoveries in game, with 5 midair jumps and a decent air speed. His attacks are all disjointed, giving him good reach and decent instant kill attacks. He also has the ability to switch out with Kirby, which can be used to escape pressure. He has a solid dash dance, making him one of the few characters in the game to be able to overcome the game's slippery physics.

Despite this, Meta Knight lacks a projectile, though he has less trouble dealing with them than Kirby. Due to his switching move, Meta Knight only possesses four moves that deal damage, which grants him less options than the other characters on average.

His cons are relatively minimal, but his strengths do not match the same level as the higher tiered characters, thus leaving him in the higher end of the mid tiers.
