A way used by stupid people to define how good a character in a game is, usually used in the Super Smash Bros series of games. Someone using a top-tier character who is then beaten by a low-tier character will immeditely go into super whine mode and claim that the low-tier character 'cheated', because there's no way he/she could have won without cheating. This is bullshit.
Short definiton: A measurement of the cheapness of a character in a game. More cheapness= higher tier.
Player 1: *Chooses Fox*
Player 2: *Chooses Kirby*
Player 1: LOL Kirby is low-tier you're gonna get owned
The winner is.... KIRBY
Player 1: OMG U FUCKING CHEATER THERES NO WAY A KIRBY COULD BEAT A FOX!!!!shiftone
Player 2: Dude... Stop whining, you got owned.
A ranking system used in many games for diffrent charactes, or sometimes in a social order. they tend to go from Top to Bottom. Sometimes they will be ordered by number, but the problem with this is that it is hard to determine if 1. is the top or bottom tier. Selecting a bottom tier character in a video game is basically having lost at the select screen
Shiek's insane combo ability, needles, and speed make her Top Tier.
A enormously fat person. So fat it is Disgusting. From the original word, Fartnockatier.
"Tier!" "Tier" "You are a Tier!"
