Something that is so superlative that it cannot be described by any traditional ranking system. It is A++, 11/10, six stars, and three thumbs up. In rare cases, something can be so exemplary that it becomes SS or even SSS-rank.

Many people have wondered what the S stands for. Special? Super? Schwarzenegger? No one knows for sure.

Comes from Japanese video games, like the Devil May Cry series, where A-rank just wasn't good enough.
1. The atom bomb S-Ranked Hiroshima.

2. The Spartans S-Ranked the battle of Thermopylae. (Even though they lost)

3. Michael Phelps scored an S-Rank combo on the 2008 Olympics.

A perfection in a subject. Flawless in whatever it is your doing. Getting a higher percentage or always at the top 100% rate.
Getting an A+ rank is commonly obtained by getting a 95% - 100%

Getting an S rank is obtained by getting 100% or more (usually by bonus)
