Mario Tennis Aces is a Mario based tennis game that was released in 2018 for the Nintendo Switch. It has a few Mario themed courses and Mario themed characters to play as, but it still remains mostly similar to other Mario sports games. As such, there are some Mario Tennis Aces tier lists out there that rank the playable characters from worst to best. This article will be going over my personal Mario Tennis Aces Tier list, which ranks the playable characters from worst to best according to their individual strengths and weaknesses on court.
Tier one: Mario
Mario is the worst Mario in Mario Tennis Aces. Mario has a terrible serve and weak groundstrokes, making him one of the weakest characters on the court with no clear strengths to speak of. Mario is only a tiered one because he’s playable right from the start, but I don’t recommend playing as Mario unless you’re just starting Mario Tennis Aces and need a way to get used to Mario’s gameplay.
Tier two: Peach
Peach has a weak serve and groundstrokes, but her defensive shots are some of the strongest in Mario Tennis Aces. She also has one of Mario Tennis Aces’ more useful special moves in her Orange Shot that can allow Peach to return shots Mario may have normally lost. Peach’s slow movement on the court makes her a difficult character to use, but she can be strong if you know how to play well defensively.
Tier three: Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong is one of Mario Tennis Aces’ stronger characters with some good defensive skills and a decent service that will allow Mario to win a lot of points. Mario can also use Donkey Kong’s Giant Punch which Mario can hit the ball back at an opponent from far away, but Mario will need time to charge up before he is able to execute this move again.
Tier four: Daisy
Daisy has one of Mario Tennis Aces’ best serves and groundstrokes, but Mario won’t be able to use her power shots too much. Mario can also get a speed boost in Daisy’s Flower Shot which will help Mario return the ball even faster than normal and allow for easy points against his opponents.
Tier five: Waluigi
Waluigi is one of Mario Tennis Aces’ best offensive characters. Mario can use Waluigi’s Wicked Slice, which Mario will need to charge up before he is able to execute it again. Mario should also try using Waluigi’s Stutter Shot and Clear Shot if they are available during a match
Tier six: Yoshi
Mario Tennis Aces’ tier list places Yoshi in sixth place in Mario Tennis Aces. Mario will have a hard time returning shots with Yoshi, but Mario can use his power shot to help Mario clear the net for an easy point
Tier seven: Wario
Wario is one of Mario’s best offensive characters in Mario Tennis Aces. Mario should be cautious if they are playing against someone who has a Wario in Mario Tennis Aces. Mario will need to use his power shot or a drop shot if they want any chance of returning the ball and winning with Mario
Tier eight: Waluigi
Waluigi is Mario’s most defensive character in Mario Tennis Aces. Mario should use Waluigi if they want to win with a point by not giving the other player any chance of returning Mario’s power shots
Tier nine: Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong can be one of Mario’s best characters when it comes to Mario Tennis Aces which Mario should always keep in mind. Mario can use Donkey Kong to make a powerful shot that will clear the net with Mario’s power shots and if Mario has an easy chance of returning it, then they’ll win
Tier ten: Wario-Man
Wario-man is one of Mario’s most offensive characters when it comes to Mario Tennis Aces and Mario should always keep in mind. Mario can use Wario-man if they want a quick shot that will clear the net with Mario’s power shots and if Mario has an easy chance of returning it, then they’ll win
