Tier lists are one way to look at how characters stack up, but actual usage rates at competitive events can sometimes tell a different story. Fighting game enthusiast Koga compiled a handy chart that speaks with pure data. It displays each character in Street Fighter V and counts how may times they’ve been picked, or used as a counter-pick, in Capcom Pro Tour events.

Ken edges out Necalli by a single choice, with Karin and Nash hot on their trail. The characters with the least representation are Zangief, Alex, Guile, and Rashid, with the gadget-loving fighter not seeing any top 8 performances as of the end of May.
