Sheik is a playable character in Super Smash Flash, and appears as a 2-in-1 character along Zelda via her Down Attack. She could be considered faster than Zelda.
Sheik is ranked 12th on the tier list. Sheik addresses some of Zelda's flaws, by giving her more speed, a bit more power, and a projectile. Whilst her recovery is still similar to Zelda, her projectile gives her a better defence against some characters. Unlike the official games, Nayru's Love deals damage, can be cancelled out of, and has the ability to instantly kill opponents. Other moves that have the instant-kill trait are Spin Kick and Stomp.
Unfortunately, Needle Storm has a slow firing rate, decreasing its utility. Her lack of disjoints also give her a hard time against characters that have them. Because of the way that Sheik is programmed, her attributes are not included alongside the other characters', leaving her data a mystery. As a result, she does not benefit from recent advances in the game's meta that stemmed from data mining.
Due to how well she addresses Zelda's flaws, she remains a force to be reckoned with, placing her in at the top of the mid tier.
