This is a tier list for 1v1. Post your tier list structures, and arguments for which character should be "X" tier along with your explaination as to why.
I will update this regularly.
Keep in mind that this is not an "official" tier list. Simply the community's input, mixed with what I've personally seen in the game to this point. This is motly based on character potential.
Keep the input coming
After using everybody, heres what I think.
Kratos - S Tier and we all know why.....
Fat Princess - B Tier. She actually can do some real work in the right hands. Her supers are decent, and she can combo very easily. People just don't use her enough, but FP is a great character.
Cole - C Tier (Not because his name starts with C ) Cole is just meh. He looked so good in the trailer and just seemed like an amazing character to use. But in reality, he is difficult to chain long combos with, has a half good moveset, and has some okay supers
Heihachi - B Tier. Kinda like FP, he is very underrated. Being one of the only legitimate "fighters" in the game, he can seriously be a challenge. His AP gain is good, and his attacks all are great. He only really suffers from having quite limited range considering he only uses his fists and feet.
Toro - Haven't used Toro that much and haven't played him that much. I would put him around the B or C area, but I'm probably poorly judging him.
PaRappa - B Tier. Great combos. His AP gain is fairly good if you can use him right. Only issue.. his level 1 is difficult to land. Other than that, Parappa is good. I would put him in A, but hes way too underused to really be considered an A tier.
Radec - C Tier. Radec is not really too underpowered, its just that he really lacks a variety when it comes to range. Most of his attacks suck at close range and excel at a distance. He really only is good for spamming. Never seen a single Radec that didn't try to spam the sniper all game.
Big Daddy - C Tier. Slow, bad Level 1, and not many great combos. Big Daddy is mediocre, imo. Those that I have seen using him usually spam the ground pound move he has.
Nathan Drake - B Tier. As expected, Nate didn't dissapoint. He has some very good moves and easy to learn combos. All round, I generally like him. His horrible level 1 is all that holds him back to me..
Sweet Tooth - A Tier (surprisingly). I think Sweet Tooth is a baus. He has a nice variety of strong moves, and decent supers. Ih the right hands, he'll own
Sly - A Tier. Nice moves, somewhat spammy. But the one thing that brings him so high up is his teleport move. Its spammy as **bleep**, and extremely annoying. I wish you could at least see his player arrow but he stays invincible while in the mode. It would divide the annoyingness of that move by over 9000.
Jak - D Tier. Underpowered (horribly). Hard combos, not many useful moves, slow AP gain. Nuff said.
Sackboy - B Tier. Hes decent. Not good when it comes to plain old usefulness. Hes more of a staller tbh. Hard to learn but great combos.
Dante - S Tier. I say Dante is one of the best in the entire game. He has fast AP gain, nice combos, and amazing supers. If it weren't for the sheer OPness of Kratos and Raiden, he would be the most overused character.
Ratchet - B Tier. Meh. Okay combos, great AP gain, and awesome supers. Even though he seems to be a bit of a spammer.
Spike - B Tier. GREAT SUPERS. Hard to get, but nice combos. Decent AP gain.
Evil Cole - B Tier. He is definitely better than good Cole, imo. Better moves, even though he has worst supers. Somewhat spammy, but still okay.
Raiden - S Tier, and we all know why
Nariko - A Tier. 2 words, Female Kratos. Only thing that keeps her from going to the S is her mediorce supers
Sir Dan - C Tier. He is slow, has hard combos, and a mediocre level 1. His other supers are nice and he has decent AP gain
These were all based on my experiences.

This is based on 2v2/FFA for me.. Not enough experience with 1v1 to think about that yet.
