This guy is super fast - this is the spirit of his games. And he is quite fast in SSBU as well. Will this speed be enough advantage to proclaim Captain Falcon one of the best characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate? Probably yes, but only if you really like this guy and want to choose him as your primary factor. After all, the preferences of players are rarely based on bare calculations. We have lots of emotions involved in this fundamental choice.
We talked about this character in more detail in our SSBU guide on moves of Captain Falcon. Here, let's take a look at his matchup chart.

We mentioned this in a similar post about Bowser, and it's worth repeating - SSBU matchup charts are never an ultimate truth on the strengths and weaknesses of game characters. All the fighting games are rather unpredictable, and the developers try to balance fighters to not make anyone too strong or too weak (this is true for Tekken 7 and Street Fighter 5 too). Also. lots of additional factors affect match results. It’s always better to choose the character you just like and then practice with them to improve your skills and master various tricks.
Our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Captain Falcon matchup chart may differ from your personal experience in the game - we all are different and have our own opinions. Improve your skills with our SSBU guide for beginners, practice a lot, and prove Captain Falcon can defeat anyone from the unfavorable groups (or your guy from the favorable groups can easily beat him).
Captain Falcon matchup charts still have a practical role - thanks to it, players roughly know when to activate all their power and when they can count on in-game advantages.
