About SSB World
SSB World is a community-driven database for Sm4sh. Our goal is to build the largest library of Smash 4 videos and players in order to help you advance your character skills, matchup knowledge and opponent knowledge. We want to help you get better at Sm4sh.
What Makes SSB World Better than YouTube Search?
All of our videos are fully tagged, recording the Players, Stages, Characters and Winners for each game in a set. This gives us the ability to find matchups that YouTube search often doesn't turn up. Want to watch Diddy Kong vs Sheik on Duck Hunt? No problem, videos are just a few clicks away. In addition to that, we can create aggregate statistics for the data we collect.
What Types of Videos are on SSB World?
We only allow competitive tournament matches of SSB4 Singles Sets. YouTube is full of low quality matches and For Glory battles. Our site keeps the quality high.
Any Tips for Beating Marth with Greninja?
Have you ever encountered a matchup based question like this? Our site hopes to help people answer that question by providing people with easy to navigate video matchups.
Does Anyone Know Who X is in My Pool?
Use our Player Database to search Competitive SSB Players and find videos of the players in your pool as well as data on what characters they use most frequently.
Who Are Some Good Dark Pit Mains?
As we build more data, we'll be able to share the top players who use characters for over 50% (75%, 90%, etc) of their tournament matches. A list of Top Player mains for every character, that dynamically adjusts as new data comes in.
Is SSB World the Best Sm4sh Data Source?
No. All of the data presented on our site is entirely based on Sm4sh VODs from tournaments that are uploaded to our site. We will never be perfect for player records nor do intend on replacing any existing Smash datasets, rankings or sites. We hope to complement those sites by delivering some unique stats such as "Who wins more on Dream Land 64 between Mario and Cloud" with some actual data driven numbers.
The more videos that get added to our site, the more reliable statistical insights the community will be able to get.
- Who usually wins between R.O.B. and Bowser Jr.?
- Which character has the best win percentage on Final Destination?
- What stages do my bracket opponents have the lowest winning percentage on?
- Which one of my secondary characters has the best win percentage against Bayonetta?
- The options are limitless.
