Mewtwo is ranked 20th on the current tier list, in the F tier. While initially deemed the worst character in the game, the changing metagame of Melee caused Mewtwo to experience a rise of six places. Mewtwo's good attributes include a long, safe, and difficult to counter recovery, a rather good chaingrabbing ability, an ability to perform mindgames, a decent combo ability, and among the best throws in the game. However, Mewtwo suffers from an unusual combination of being a large target and a lightweight; this, combined with its floatiness and long periods of hitstun cause it to be easy to KO. Additionally, its up throw, which happens to be Mewtwo's primary finisher, changes in effectiveness depending on the falling speed of its opponent.
