SSBM Statistics: Average Fall Speeds

Character fall speeds for Super Smash Bros. Melee.

New: For All Stats -> SSBM Statistics Master List

Average Fall Speed

This table shows the average fall speed for each character in meters per second, and feet per second. I tested average fall speed by putting each character 8.1 meters off the ground (The maximum height of Fox's Up+B) and recording the time it takes to reach the ground.

The character with the fastest fall speed is Falco. The character with the slowest fall speed is Jigglypuff.

    “The character with the fastest fall speed is Falcon.”

    But he’s only ranked #2 here. (51.29)
    Did you mean Falco, without the [n]? (54.83)
