This faq contains character's who can easily defeat characters and additional stats. If you have any questions about this faq or anything else, please contact me at Justincase_8@hotmail.com Mario ***** As you should know Mario is pretty decent all-around. But Mario is no specialist at long range. If your close up Mario can fight pretty well. If you go long he has fireballs, but also that annoying cape move. No character is a weakness against a SKILLED Mario. cool move: cape someone to turn them around and punch them over and over. Dr. Mario ********* Dr. Mario is a pretty close character to Mario. He has only a few differences. He throws pills instead of fireballs, he wears a Dr.'s coat, and the one most people overlook, he is stronger, but slower. Although he is not much slower an exceptionally good spead character may defeat him with less difficulty than Mario. (spead characters are like Fox, and others. cool move: try repeatedly caping someone. Luigi ***** Luigi is also close to Mario. He has a lot more different moves than Dr. Mario has over Mario. Luigi can charge a side missle-like attack instead of cape. He has no real character weakness. cool move: try waiting for someone and doing up b. A very strong attack will be unleashed if your on the ground when they are near you. Bowser ****** We're finally off the people similar to Mario. Bowser is a slow and powerful character. His weight may also keep him alive through heavy damage. He has a bad long range attack until they get a little close. You can scorch them with fire. He is almost useless against a very fast character, therefore, Shiek, Fox, Pichu, and others like them are a weakness. cool move: try pressing right/left b and sometimes you will grab them and do tons of damage. Peach ***** Peach is a good close ranger. She has various weapons, frying pan, golf club, and other things. Unfortunately, she has a bad long range. Her long range is a vegetable that she throws. It does little damage, can be caught and thrown back, and is slow. She is very good in F-zero levels where she can float over cars. (hold y) Her weakness character is probably good all-around characters and pikachu, who can zap her when she's floating. Kirby ***** Kirby is a fun character because he can copy character's b button powers. If your him go for a Samus hat to make him the ultimate character. With the Samus hat he has two long range and plenty of close. His rock attack is very effective and he's good in mid-air with his spinning hammer. He is a little light is the only problem. His weakness character is pikachu who can zap him when he's trying to turn to a rock. (The rock move is a great shield, but be careful of grabs.) cool move: go over someone who is trying to get back to a ledge and rock until you hit, then puff back to the edge. Ice Climbers ************ These two are not horrible. One ice climber is the computer when you're separated and the computer cannot give you damage if it's hurt. They are mostly close-range but have a mild ice attack for long distance. Try not to lose your partner or you'll be weaker. A skilled long ranger can kill the ice climbers. cool move: try freezing someone and hitting them. (freeze-down b) Samus ***** Samus is the best long-rang fighter. She has missles, a chare beam, and a very long grab. She isn't horrible at close combat with punches and bombs. Samus's weakness is probably Fox or Falco, generally the fast reflectors. cool move: if you press foward b suddenly you can get a super missle. (not seaking, but stronger) Marth ***** One of the many best close range fighters. Marth has a charge sword attack. Marth has a fast combo move, and the most useful a counter attack. (down b) If anybody hits Marth in the middle of his counter move he will strike back taking no damage. He is faster and can swipe quicker than Roy. His weakness is long range, like Samus. cool move: try swiping people up and up repeatedly until they're off the top of the screen. Roy *** Roy is very similar with almost all the same moves as Marth. He is stronger using fire in his attacks, and is a little slower in combat than Marth. His weakness is the same as Marth's. (see above) cool move: charge all the way up (b) if you hit someone an explosion will appear killing the victim in one hit! This move will give you 10 damage. Link **** Link is a common favororite. He is good all-around (boomerang, arrows, bombs) and an excellent close-ranger. Link's spin attack is one of the best in the game. Doing the spin attack in the air is more effective because you can slice multiple times. Link's only weakness character is Kirby, because he can turn to a rock over Link in his mid-air spin. cool move: grab and throw someone up, then jump and press a up, it causes some useful damage. Young Link ********** Young Link is very close to Link with a few differences. Young Link's sword attacks are weaker, except for his spin attack which holds people in swiping over and over. His arrows are fire, and stronger than Link's. Young Link is also faster. But if you like to hit the enemy far away, don't use him. His weakness is Kirby for the same reason as Link. (see above) cool move: grab and throw someone up and throw a bomb to hit them, this can cause a lot of damage. Zelda ***** Zelda and Sheik are the same character, you just change into them. (down b) Zelda is a light character, which means it takes less damage to knock her off. She uses powerful attacks especially in mid-air. Try using a in different positions. Her weaknesses are powerful characters, like Roy, Falco, DK, ect. cool move: in mid-air press a up when someone's above you for a powerful explosion. Shiek ***** Shiek and Zelda are the same character (see above). Shiek is very fast. Her attacks aren't the strongest, but she's fast enough to get a lot in. She's good all-around, and can easily beat Bowser if skilled enough. Her weakness is Samus, because she is mostly close range and will have trouble getting to a skilled Samus. cool move: grab someone and throw them up, hit a up to do a twist attack. Repeat over and over to accumulate a lot of damage. Fox *** Fox is also a very fast character like Shiek that can get a lot of hits in. Fox's blaster doesn't keep the enemy back, so don't use him if you don't like that. Fox is weaker than Falco, but he's faster and his fire fox goes farther than Falco's fire bird. Fox's weakness is probably Falco, a stronger version of him. cool move: do your reflector move when your next to someone to get some distance. Falco ***** Falco is a stronger version of Fox. Although Falco's fire bird doesn't go very far compared to Fox's. His blaster however, is stronger and can keep the enemy back. Falco's weakness is no one. He can be defeated but he's good all around. cool move: reflect a shot from another Falco or Fox, and have them reflect the same blast going back and fourth. D.K. **** D.K. is a heavier and stronger character than others. Although he isn't as slow as Bowser he is a little lighter and a big target. He can charge a punch and kill off light characters in a heartbeat. He's especially good in large groups where he do spinning kong (up b) or slap attack. (down b) His weakness is the good old Samus for him being slow, a big target, and no long-range. cool move: grab someone and leap off an edge, this is good if you have like two lives and they have one, grab and jump until you die with the for the win. (don't do to Kirby or Jigglypuff, who can float back up!) Pikachu ******* Pikachu is very fast like Fox. It uses electrical attacks and its best move is probably thunder jolt (down b). It can kill Kirby easily because it can just zap him when he's flying. Pikachu is good all-around, but stronger characters like D.K. and Bowser are its weakness. cool move: get someone against a wall and hit them a lot. Then do thunder jolt and send them flying! Pichu ***** Pichu is a little faster and stronger than Pikachu. Pichu however has a bad side- effect. It gets hurt from using its electrical attacks. Because of this you shouldn't use Pichu in stamina mode. Pichu's weakness is Gannondorf and Captain Falcon who are strong enough to kill it when it's weak from its attacks. cool move: try skull bash (over b) and then thunder jolt. Captain Falcon ************** Captain Falcon is the ultimate close-range character next to Marth, Roy, and Gannondorf. He is fast and powerful especially his falcon punch move. (b)He can beat almost anyone in clost range. His weakness is Samus, he has no long-range. cool move: get over someone then do (down b) and then (up b). Gannondorf ********** Gannondorf is one of the strongest players in the game. He is stronger, but slower than Captain Falcon. Although he's so strong, he has many weaknesses. For one, he is easily defeated by a skilled speedster. He is also defeated by skilled long- rangers. I think if you had to pick one weakness character it would be Falco. cool move: try jumping into the air below someone and kick them up and up. Jigglypuff ********** A lot of people see Jigglypuff as a weak puff-ball. But if your good with it you can send enemies flying with down b. If you miss it could be fatal. Jigglypuff also has a good grab when it throws opponents higher than anyone else. It's not the best, but it is often underestimated. It's weakness are strong characters. (Gannondorf, Bowser, D.K., ect.) cool move: do down b on someone and then keep kicking in mid-air. Ness **** Ness is a good all around character. He has two pretty good long-range attacks and a few close-range. His baseball bat can send enemies flying a long way and his yoyo is effective in many directions. He can also gain hp when you press down b from long range shots. Ness's weakness is Kirby who has the great ability to rock but Kirby is only a little more effective. cool move: grab someone, throw and then use your yoyo to cause lots of damage. Mr. Game and Watch ****************** Mr. Game and Watch are very strong and a little on the slow side. He has one long range attack but it's pretty weak. His foward A attacks are very good though. His up b goes far and is pretty powerful. His weakness is probably Falco or Samus. cool move: hit up b and then over b to cause a death if done enough times.
