Hello forumers. I have grouped all of the Prince of Tennis and New Prince of Tennis moves and techs into different ranks. These are from BOTH ANIME AND MANGA. Please comment on any mistakes and if you think a move shouldn't be that rank just say it. I will take any opinion into account.
Note: At the moment, all ranks are ordered.
* The player cannot usually use the technique and certain requirements must be met to do so

Firstly, D and E Tier seem kinda useless, I'd suggest to remove them.
Now regarding the actual moves:
-Why is In so high, it can seal one move which isn't very common anyway.
-Yips should be higher, probably above/below or in between Hyakuren and Saiki.
-Hecatoncheires no Monban should be highest of the counters, Hoshi Hanabi is stronger, granted, but also rather situational.
-Laser Beam (Yagyuu) and Koori no Sekai should be higher.
I'm lazy and leave it at that for now.
-Shadow is efficient because it doesn't sap away energy and can be pulled out at anytime.
-It's effective because it can defeat high-level moves (not necessarily has to defeat a lot).
-It's a difficult move which a lot of people can't do.
Rank SS ordered.

For In see below. Regarding Hoshi Hanabi, it can only be used after a cord ball, whereas Hecatoncheires can be used from any position. Furhtermore there probably wouldn't be many opponents that have just enough spin to make that cord ball happen after Heca. To make it short, Hoshi Hanabi is too situational to be in SS imo.
Finally, Illusion. I think it stands to drop as we came to the conclusion that Niou doesn't really copy a player, but just pretends to do so, I'll elaborate when needed.
-it can defeat one high-level move, an extremly rare one at that
-that shouldn't be a criteria imo; imagine a very complicated technique that actually doesn't do much though, with this criteria it'd get a boost but it's still bad; it's your list though, so do as you wish (and put the criteria into the OP)

1. I think it is important to see the Ranks D and E move list so that we can better justify them.
2. Bible Tennis is not a move, right? It's a method of game play.
Still, I like the list.
Personally, I think neither should be in SS though.
Southern Cross is way better than the position it's currently in. It's an almost guaranteed 1 hit killer against players non top tier players.

Somehow, I'm kind of predicting that there is also another high school player who can break Teni Muhou no Kiwami. Or if not, a player who can also use it.
i wonder what Fuji's next counters look like? He's like the best character in the game for me.
For me though, I think the Nezumihana Beat should go down one level. We weren't able to see much from that one, I guess.

What else... Angel Mode should probably go up a bit. Angel!Akaya should be 2nd court material.
Hoshi Hanabi is rather situational, I know. I'm not sure about this one. Hoshi Hanabi works when Hecatatoncheires is returned. Heca is a strong move on it's own and so is Hoshi Hanabi. I guess since Hoshi Hanabi is an 'in case' move I'll push Hecatoncheires up.
No, In and Closed Eyes can't break out of Yips. You even said it yourself, it "heightens" other senses - Yips kills those senses.
