Bowser[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff His up aerial, dash, and crouching animation have 10% armor. He will tank attacks that deal less than 10% damage during these instances and be unflinchable.
  • Change Has a flame effect added to his forward smash, forward aerial (when sweetspotted), up aerial, forward throw, and pummel.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dash attack has armor until frame 28 and propels Bowser farther, giving it more reach.
  • Change Down tilt is now two separate inputs. The first hit is significantly weaker, but leaves Bowser less vulnerable if it misses. The first hit also has a chance of tripping the opponent.
  • Buff Up tilt modified to hit in front of Bowser.
  • Buff Vacuum effect added to the charging of his forward smash.
  • Buff Armor on his forward smash on frames 12 to 41 (including charge), with forward and backward dodge cancels, simulating Focus Attack.
  • Buff Fully charged forward smash ignores shields.
  • Buff Up smash has an earthquake hitbox at the end, similarly to King Dedede's side smash.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Grabs now have invincibility on startup. Pressing the special move button within the first few frames of a grab cancels it into a pivot grab.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Aerials all have less landing lag, and neutral aerial has its landing lag completely removed.

Special moves[edit]

  • Change Fire Breath removed, now replaced with Royal Rampage on the ground and Galactic Crusher in the air.
    • Buff Royal Rampage: Bowser performs a running bear grab. Bowser will gain armor from frames (6→64) and walk forward until he either grabs an opponent or after 3 stomps. Grabbing the opponent results in an alternate grab state with alternate throws.
      • Buff Forward throw: Bowser spins around and then throws the foe forward.
      • Buff Back throw: Bowser grinds the opponent on the ground with his shell. A powerful horizontal finisher.
      • Buff Up throw: Bowser jumps into the air and performs a piledriver. Useful for KOs.
      • Buff Down throw: Bowser slams the opponent on the ground. The opponent can tech the move like with Mr. Game & Watch's down throw.
    • Buff Galactic Crusher: When Neutral B is used in the air, Bowser spins around in the air and gains armor. If a foe is in range, they will be grabbed and piledriven into the ground, resulting in a powerful explosion and massive knockback.
  • Buff Flying Slam is quicker and buries foes.
  • Buff Whirling Fortress gains significantly increased vertical height when used for recovery. On the ground, Whirling Fortress is a multi-hitting attack after the initial hitbox.
  • Buff Bowser Boost: Bowser Bomb's grounded startup can be canceled into a jump or an aerial.

Captain Falcon[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Air speed now carries momentum from his dash ala Melee.
  • Change All of his attacks involving his knee (Gentleman, Knee Smash, and pummel) have electrical effects, increased hitlag, and play the "Yes!" SFX (when hit cleanly in the case of the Gentleman and Knee Smash).

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff The Gentleman has much greater knockback. The rapid jabs after the Gentleman are performed by hitting the grab button instead of the attack button for the third jab hit.
  • Buff Up tilt can now meteor smash at his heel.
  • Buff Captain Falcon slides further when Forward Smash is used, giving it more reach.
  • Buff Up smash has greater range and no longer has SDI.
  • Buff First kick of down smash produces higher trajectory knockback, while the second kick produces lower trajectory knockback, being a semi-spike.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff A clean Knee Smash is stronger and can be done on any part of its initial hitbox.
  • Buff Down aerial always meteor smashes.
  • Buff All aerials have their landing lag halved, essentially granting Captain Falcon automatically L-canceled aerials.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff All grabs are faster and have longer reach.
    • Change A successful grab is accompanied by his "Come on!" SFX.
  • Change Captain Falcon now will now say his "Yes!" for every successful pummel.
  • Buff Forward throw is much stronger, being able to reliably KO under 150%.
  • Buff Back throw is now a meteor smash.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Falcon Punch hits foes up to four times with massive knockback on the final hit, gives Captain Falcon forward momentum, and can instantly break shields if not perfect shielded.
    • Buff Additionally, the move can be charged up on the ground and stored by holding the special button for a few seconds. If the button is let go too soon or mashed, he will be stunned briefly. The stored punch can be unleashed at will, and though it’s not as strong as a full 4-hit punch, it’s much quicker.
    • Change Falcon Punch has drastically increased hitlag.
  • Buff Falcon Dive's grab is much stronger if it lands, and hitboxes have been added to end of the animation when he flips if Captain Falcon fails to grab an opponent.
    • Nerf If the grab lands, the animation is stalled out significantly longer while Captain Falcon says "Show me your moves!", giving an opponent more time to DI or tech the explosion should he or she be near a wall.
  • Buff Raptor Boost no longer makes Captain Falcon helpless, and it covers more ground, making it effective for recovery. Grounded Raptor Boost ends with the uppercut animation instead of the falling down animation, even when it misses, making it more difficult to punish a whiffed Raptor Boost. An airborne Raptor Boost can be cancelled near a wall into a wall jump.
  • Buff Falcon Kick is a multi-hitting attack, and restores his midair jump when used in the air. Grounded Falcon Kick also travels further, and is jump cancelable near the end of the move for follow up combos.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change His side taunt has a vacuum effect, covering a huge area in front of him.
  • Buff The salute on his down taunt can damage for 1%.
  • Change He now quietly says “yes” during his up taunt.

Ground attacks[edit]

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Fire Spin: Neutral aerial has additional flame effects, sweetspot is enlarged, and speed is increased.
  • Buff Heat Wave: Forward aerial's range on the flames is increased, all hitboxes cause flinching, and the final hit causes better knockback.
  • Buff Down aerial can now be buffered into a down smash by executing the move just before landing.

Grabs and Throws[edit]

  • Buff Down throw produces an explosion at the end, along with more knockback and damage.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Neutral special changed to Blast Burn, which launches a powerful fireball instead of a light flame.
  • Buff Rock Smash is now Stealth Rock, which is moved to down special. It functions similarly to its original move, but the remaining shards stay out, making it a useful edgeguarding and neutral tool. Additionally, it can be B-Reversed and now interruptible during start-up lag by performing a shield, a grab, or an air dodge.
  • Buff Side special changed to Dragon Rush, which hurls Charizard forward, creating a whirlwind effect around it. Can be used multiple times in the air.
  • Change Final Smash changed to Blast Burn Blitz, which causes Charizard to use a non-angled Blast Burn ten times.

Diddy Kong[edit]

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Change Knockback on forward and down tilts are now set, and are extremely weak.
  • Buff Dash attack transitions into a neutral aerial immediately upon going off the ledge.

  • Buff Monkey Flip given armor.
  • Buff Monkey Flip grab reworked:
    • Buff Pressing the jump button makes Diddy push himself forward, knocking the opponent backwards.
    • Buff Pressing A or B makes Diddy smack the opponent and propel both of them upwards.
  • Buff Jetpack can be fired by holding the shield button when charging Rocketbarrel Boost and only explodes in contact with a wall or after 90 frames. Diddy cannot use Rocketbarrel Boost again until the move ends.
  • Buff Rocketbarrel Boost is attack cancellable, doesn't render Diddy Kong helpless, and cancels into Monkey Flip. Diddy can use his double jump after his up special.
  • Buff Banana Hoard: Can pull an additional Banana Peel when two are on the ground already. Doing so causes him to perform his up taunt, and obtaining another banana. He also pulls the first two bananas much faster. Cannot pull additional banana peels while in the air.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change Has two side taunts. A light D-Pad press makes Diddy do a quick, silent laugh, while a harder press performs his original side taunt.
  • Change When using down taunt, confetti will appear and the audience will cheer.

Donkey Kong[edit]

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dash attack sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.
  • Buff Forward smash produces a wind effect.
  • Buff Donkey Kong slides much farther when doing a running up smash.

Aerial attacks[edit]

Throws/other attacks[edit]

  • Buff Barrel Blast: DK now moves around much further when throwing Barrels in the air.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff 'Giant Punch charges twice as fast when Donkey Kong is on the ground, and it no longer leaves him helpless if used when airborne. Holding the special button when unleashing a fully charged punch sends him forward giving the move more reach.
  • Buff Headbutt's startup is cancelable into anything, which can be used to halt his aerial momentum.
  • Buff Spinning Kong gives Donkey Kong significantly more vertical distance.
  • Buff Barrel Pull: Hand Slap pulls out a Barrel if the special move button is held. The Barrels will disappear quickly and no longer explode. The move is also faster and has significantly larger hitboxes.
  • Change What Barrel?!: Performing Hand Slap/Barrel Pull in the air has DK do his down taunt animation in the air. It can also be interrupted at any time by any attack.

Falco[edit]

Aesthetics[edit]

  • Change New Star KO scream: Falco now says "You aren’t worth the trouble!" which is also a voice clip from one of his victory poses.
  • Change Name stylized as Falco Lombardi.

  • Buff Down aerial always meteor smashes when landed.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Fire Bird travels much farther with much greater momentum, now showing off blue flames.
    • Buff Falco also conserves the momentum for a short period of time after the fire.

Fox[edit]

Aesthetics[edit]

  • Buff Wavedash: As in Melee, air dodging diagonally into the ground allows Fox to retain his momentum, improving mobility and combo ability.
  • Change Can slide off ledges by crouching while walking or dashing.
  • Buff Dash speed, walking speed, falling speed, and air speed increased.
  • Change Traction significantly reduced, allowing for a longer wavedash at the cost of the normal effects of higher traction.

  • Change Fire Fox now hits at the autolink angle and has darker flame graphics.
    • Buff If driven into a wall, Fire Fox can be cancelled into a wall jump if timed properly. Fox will also retain his midair jump if not already used.

  • Buff Reflector now locks fallen opponents and has its Melee SFX.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change Fire Taunt: Pressing B after he says "Here I come!" in his up taunt will execute Fire Fox.

Ganondorf[edit]

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Neutral attack and up smash have drastically faster start-up and ending lag.
  • Buff Dark Quake: Up tilt has less start-up, damaging hitboxes dealing 1% per tick on the vacuum, and now produces a near-full screen earthquake hitbox dealing 20% damage.
  • Change The earthquake hitbox of up tilt produces a darkness effect rather than a flame effect.
  • Buff Dash attack has armor. Additionally, holding A during the dash will cause Ganondorf to perform a low knockback Gerudo Dragon, creating follow-ups at the cost of the armor.
  • Buff Forward smash produces a large, darkness explosion, drastically increasing the size of its hitbox. It has an additional, weak hitbox added before the primary hitbox, and the primary hitbox now produces vertical knockback, like Ganondorf's forward smash did in Melee.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Neutral aerial goes from first kick to second kick extremely quickly, and the first kick has less knockback, making combining easier..
  • Buff Forward aerial is faster and produces a darkness effect..

Ignores shields. An aerial Warlock Punch is interruptible if it hits.
    • Buff Gandouken: Holding the special move button while using Warlock Punch fires a ranged wave of fire that travels slowly, hits multiple times, and can be shielded.
  • Buff Flame Choke covers much more distance at a faster speed when used on the ground, and no longer makes Ganondorf helpless if he goes offstage using it or when he uses it in the air. The grounded version has less ending lag when landed. The airborne version has much more forward momentum when landed as well as burying opponents upon landing on the ground.
    • Buff Devil's Fine Print: Pressing A during the grab of the air version executes an explosive throw akin to Dark Dive with vertical knockback, instead of causing both Ganondorf and the grabbed opponent to plummet downward. It is also worth mentioning that if canceled 1 frame before hitting the blast zone, Ganondorf will not die, but the opponent will.
  • Buff Ganryuken: Dark Dive throw is drastically stronger and spikes opponents, making it extremely risky to edge-guard. Uppercut hitbox at the end of Dark Dive has also undergone a drastic increase in power and hitlag, dealing 26% damage and being capable of KOing under 60%.
  • Change Laughing SFX added to when Ganondorf releases the opponent after a successful Dark Dive or aerial Flame Choke's explosive throw.
  • Change Dark Dive's throw now produces a darkness effect rather than a flame effect, and the uppercut shows claw effects.
  • Buff Airborne Wizard's Foot always spikes, buries grounded opponents, and restores Ganondorf's midair jump. Grounded Wizard's Foot is drastically stronger, KOing under 100%, and travels at a faster rate. It also has brief invincibility on frame 6, excluding Ganondorf's arm and shoulder.

Ice Climbers[edit]

Attributes[edit]

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Change Both Climbers can now meteor smash with their forward aerial.
  • Buff Icicle Drop: Down aerial now attacks with icicles that freeze foes on-contact, with stronger, horizontal knockback. The Climbers now have horizontal control when using the move, while also falling at a slower speed when using it.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Nerf Ice-Grip Nana: Infinite chain throws are no longer possible, as the partner cannot grab (they will freeze upon release instead).

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Ice Shot increases in size over time when traversing the ground instead of decreasing.
  • Buff Squall Hammer can cancel into any grab input. In the air, the leader can cancel Squall Hammer into an aerial, but the partner cannot.
  • Buff Belay now has hitboxes on both Climbers for the entirety of the non-helpless portion. When a solo climber uses the move, Belay gives much more horizontal and vertical distance when recovering.
    • Buff To-Tether Forever: As long as the partner Climber has not been KO'd, using Belay or Squall Hammer will bring them back.
  • Buff Slippery Blizzard: It is now possible to glide along the ground while using Blizzard.
    • Nerf Blizzard no longer freezes.
    • Buff Nana’s Blizzard can be canceled into another attack.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Wind effect added to forward smash, as well as when charging one.
  • Buff Sourspot removed from forward smash.
  • Buff Dash Attack cancels on hit.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Neutral aerial has significantly less aerial ending lag, no longer resulting in accidental SDs when Ike is pushed off stage when trying to jab or shield.
  • Buff Ike Copter: Up aerial propels Ike upwards slightly when the attack button is held.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Pummel speed has been drastically increased.
  • Buff Knockback on up throw has been drastically increased, becoming capable of KOing under 150%.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff The charging of Eruption can be cancelled by shielding or air dodging, and doing so will store a fully charged eruption. It can additionally be charged indefinitely, but Ike will slowly take damage if he holds it for too long.
    • Change Ike’s Eruption now emits blue flames.
  • Buff Quick Draw can be canceled by any input (including another Quick Draw), no longer makes Ike helpless, and can be used multiple times while airborne without landing.
  • Buff Aether has radically more knockback growth, and the final hit will heal Ike by 4% if landed.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change "I fight for my friends!" plays for his side taunt. “Prepare yourself!” now plays when Eruption is fully charged.

Ivysaur[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Up smash, up aerial, and down aerial have additional hitboxes added that cause varying effects. Up smash sourspots stuns opponents similar to the paralyzer effect, up aerial sweetspots causes a flower effect, and down aerial sweetspots puts opponents to sleep. Based on Stun Spore, Poison Powder and Sleep Powder respectively.
  • Buff Stamina has been removed.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Back aerial does almost three times the damage, dealing 11% when both hits connect instead of 4%.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Forward, back, and up throw are all drastically stronger, KOing well under 150%.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff Ivycopter: Ivysaur spins its leaves during Bullet Seed, producing additional hitboxes on its side. This also causes it to behave like a helicopter when used in the air, slightly pushing Ivysaur upward if the B button is held, and allowing it to move from side to side at will, greatly aiding its recovery. However, the helicopter effect only occurs once per being airborne, and Ivysaur must land after using Bullet Seed for the helicopter effect to take effect again while airborne. If used on the ground, Ivysaur can still move left and right, but does not float up. Aerial version cancels into up special and air dodge.
  • Buff Critical Hit: Razor Leaf deals twice as much damage. At the very end of a leaf's lifespan, it becomes a critical Razor Leaf that instead deals four times as much damage, with high knockback and hitlag.
  • Buff Vine Whip sends Ivysaur upwards if used after a jump, does not make it helpless, and can be used multiple times while airborne.
  • Change Down special changed to Giga Drain, which acts as a grab that heals Ivysaur while damaging opponents.
  • Change Final Smash changed to Solar Beam, which has a wide frontal range and can KO opponents effectively.

Jigglypuff[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Air speed increased.
  • Buff Self-Destruct: The size of Jigglypuff's shield has been greatly increased, being more than twice its original size. Upon its shield being broken, a massive explosion will accompany the shield jump, which will hit opponents right next to the explosion for 100% with extreme horizontal knockback, OHKOing any opponent caught directly in the explosion. Opponents a little further away will be hit for only 25% with dramatically less knockback. It will also put Jigglypuff into a Star KO every time.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Down tilt slides Jigglypuff forward a decent amount.
  • Buff Up smash has significantly less cooldown.
  • Buff Side smash travels farther.
  • Buff Down smash now drags nearby opponents in and traps them until the attack is released, sliding them across the stage or off of it.

  • Buff The last hit of down aerial has a chance to trip grounded opponents.
  • Buff Up aerial now links into itself, even leading to an early Rest if performed correctly.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Back throw now sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory, while the down throw is now a meteor smash.
  • Buff Up throw now sends opponents with less knockback and knockback growth, allowing more more follow-ups, even at higher percents.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff The range of Sing has been greatly increased
  • Buff Rollout can be interrupted by anything if it hits, including a true combo into Rest if timed properly. Also cancels into anything while it is turning around. Is able to be jump cancelled after it is launched in midair.
  • Buff Pound produces a spark at the end, which upon contact damages the opponent with an electrical effect with dramatic hitlag, while sending them on a semi-spike trajectory.
  • Buff Rest is much stronger and recovers damage at a moderate rate while Jigglypuff is asleep (10% when Rest connects, 15% during the sleeping portion if not interrupted.

Taunts[edit]

  • Buff Side taunt allows Jigglypuff to move while it is spinning, and if completed without interruption, it will use Secret Power, in which Jigglypuff gains a powerful explosive hitbox on its arm that deals 28% damage.
  • Buff Down taunt produces a windbox that blows foes away from it.

King Dedede[edit]

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dash attack propels Dedede forward much farther, enough to traverse an entire stage, while having the hitbox throughout.
  • Buff Forward smash creates a much larger earthquake hitbox that can reach to platforms Dedede isn't on, and trips opponents instead of knocking them upward.
  • Buff Down smash slides Dedede forward a far distance when used.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Back aerial, when sweetspotted, sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.
  • Buff Up and down aerials spin much faster.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Pivot grab has invincibility frames added.
  • Change Down throw knocks all opponents down, no longer being able to chain throw. However, it can be interrupted by a tilt after the damaging animation.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dedede's neutral special is now the "DDDecree", which allows him to command his Waddle Dees and Waddle Doos directly by using the Control Stick while holding B to make them jump, turn, or trip, or releasing B to make the Waddle Dees do a flip kick and the Waddle Doos use their beam.
    • Buff Consequently, Waddle Doos will never use their beam randomly, and Waddle Dees no longer lunge forward.
  • Buff For Waddle Dee Toss, Dedede can also throw minions vertically in the air. He can do a tilt throw that covers barely any distance, or a smash throw that can traverse the entire stage. Up to four minions can be on the stage at once per Dedede. Gordos will also not hit the minions, leaving only his opponents vulnerable.
  • Buff Waddle Dees can be launched at opponents when they are hit by Dedede.
  • Buff Dedede will not pick up and throw nearby minions, allowing him to attack freely.
  • Change Inhale has been remapped to be his down special, removing Jet Hammer in the process.

Kirby[edit]

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Jab can be interrupted at any time. Jab one and two have better range.
  • Buff Kirby now has two down tilts. Pressing down the button results in the normal tilt, while tapping it produces a sliding kick that propels Kirby backwards into the air on hit, akin to his normal sliding kick in the Kirby games.
  • Buff Kirby also has two dash attacks. Tapping the button produces the normal attack, while pressing it down results in Kirby shooting forward like a ball of fire (the Burning power in the Kirby games, which was also his dash attack in Melee). This alt dash attack sends him far, but doesn't send him offstage.
  • Buff Forward smash covers more distance, giving it more reach.
  • Buff Kirby can now slide left or right during his down smash if the analog stick is tilted in the respective direction.

    • Buff Chef cannot cause self-damage.
    • Buff Pikmin Pluck tosses Pikmin at a much faster rate.

  • Buff The first hit of Air Hammer can be cancelled into itself repeatedly by holding B.
  • Buff Final Cutter can move slightly farther horizontally. When on the ground, holding down on the control stick right before the jumping part of the move skips to the projectile-shooting part. It is also possible to cancel out of the move before the projectile-shooting part.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Pummel is stronger.

  • Buff Link's aerial Clawshot has less landing lag, letting it link into itself more.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff Hero's Bow is slightly stronger, and now randomly shoots normal or fire arrows. Normal arrows produce horizontal knockback, while fire arrows produce the same damage but with a fire effect and strong vertical knockback instead.
  • Buff When not smash thrown, Gale Boomerang covers less distance. When smash thrown, it travels twice as fast and far. It now produces damaging hitboxes during the apex of the throw and upon return, that flinch as well. The Gale Boomerang will also follow where Link goes upon return much more directly.
  • Buff Spin Attack gains significantly more vertical and horizontal distance when used for recovering, greatly increasing its recovery capabilities. The initial grounded strike and final airborne strike are also much stronger with noticeable hitlag. The SFX for Link’s up-smash plays instead when the move is used in the air. Grounded Spin Attack has also gained Great Spin property (charging it considerably increases range) and will break shield on max charge.
  • Buff Bombs can be thrown faster and further, while having much more knockback, giving them KOing capability. Link will start blinking after a period of time and will pull a Deku Nut when he attempts to a pull a bomb. Link also throws normal items faster, further, and stronger.

Taunts[edit]

  • Buff If one holds A during Link's Up Taunt, Link can perform the Mortal Draw, a fearsome attack that OHKOs any foe it connects with.

Lucario[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Nerf The Aura mechanic is mostly inactive, leaving Lucario at his initial power level.
  • Buff Air speed has been improved.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Down tilt is slightly stronger, and pushes Lucario back slightly.
  • Buff Dash attack propels Lucario farther, with much less ending lag.
  • Buff Up smash now has secondary, weaker hitboxes after the strong ones have disappeared giving the illusion that Lucario is vulnerable.
  • Buff Down smash now sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff All aerials except down aerial are much faster in start-up and ending lag.
  • Buff Neutral aerial now strikes twice, producing varying knockback trajectories, including one that sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.
  • Buff The first hit of the down aerial is now a meteor smash, and instead of halting momentum, it gives Lucario a slight boost upwards and whichever distance it is moving horizontally.
  • Change Pausing from down aerial is now shorter in duration.
  • Buff Up aerial is powerful KO option, being able to KO as low as 50%.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Pummel speed increased.
  • Buff Back throw now sends at a semi-spike trajectory.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff Aura Sphere is larger and stronger. Uncharged to barely charged Aura Spheres follow a zig zag trajectory.
  • Buff Force Palm now grabs foes in the air.
  • Buff ExtremeSpeed now has damaging hitboxes throughout the move, and knocks the enemy in the direction of movement. It can be interrupted by any aerial attack - doing so before the end of the move lets Lucario keep its momentum, allowing it to recover farther. ExtremeSpeed also no longer leaves Lucario helpless. It also now has virtually no start-up lag.
  • Change Double Team has become Focus Energy! Pressing and holding down-b, Lucario will calm himself and focus his aura. This boosts his power to 1.2x default, making his moves hit harder and do more damage. Down-B again will use Double team instantly, and grabbing someone with Force Palm will unleash Close Combat. Naturally, executing these moves will break his concentration and he will need to Focus Energy again in order to use them.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change Holding down an up taunt (or inputting the up/down/up combo, which is slightly quicker) will perform an Ultra Taunt, which creates powerful hitboxes all around Lucario that inflict 60% damage on his foes and 999% onto him. All of his attacks (except down-tilt) become immensely more powerful with much more knockback to boot. In this state his aura sphere is even stronger, and a fully charged sphere is a OHKO. This can be performed once per stock, and the buff only persists when at 999%.

Lucas[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Dashing speed has been improved.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Dash attack pushes Lucas much further, and has IASA frames added to all frames after hitboxes cede, essentially giving it no ending lag.
  • Buff Forward tilt can cancel into other moves.
  • Buff Down smash has been altered, to where the first two hits deal extremely weak vertical knockback with less damage, while the third hit is much stronger, and sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Up aerial now has a freezing hitbox.
  • Buff Neutral aerial now has more hitstun and less landing lag, allowing the user to follow up with more attacks.
  • Buff Forward Aerial is now stronger and slightly bigger.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Buff Lucas' grab aerial is attack cancelable on hit.
  • Change Lucas's down throw now sends opponents slightly behind him instead of above him.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff PK Freeze no longer leaves Lucas helpless when used while airborne. The PK Freeze projectile now explodes upon contacting ground or a wall, and will explode at the end of its trajectory if Lucas is hit before ending it, although the projectile will vanish at startup if Lucas is too close to a surface. The projectile itself now produces a paralyzer effect instead of freezing opponents. Lucas can also jump out of the animation, allowing him to move with the projectile.
  • Buff PK Fire gives Lucas a larger push back when used. Holding B (or tapping thrice) propels Lucas forward instead of backward. It is also a multi-hitting projectile that deals more damage.
  • Buff If Lucas strikes a wall/ceiling after hitting himself with the PK Thunder projectile, he will automatically use PK Thunder again, up to three consecutive times.
  • Buff PK Thunder can be interrupted by an air dodge. Doing so will not leave Lucas helpless.
  • Buff PSI Magnet can be canceled via jump, akin to how Fox's/Falco's Reflector could be in Melee, pulls close opponents towards Lucas, and has electric hitboxes dealing 2% damage per second. Releasing PSI Magnet unleashes a semispike hitbox in front of Lucas.

Taunts[edit]

  • Buff Up taunt hits nearby opponents for 1%, slightly flinching them.
  • Buff Down taunt can hit opponents for 5%.
  • Buff Side taunt will make Lucas pull out a Mr. Saturn.

Luigi[edit]

Aesthetics[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Dashing and air speed have been increased, while traction is decreased.
  • Buff Luigi's footstool jump now damages (for 12%), as well as burying grounded opponents, and meteor smashing airborne opponents with much more knockback, but still lesser than Mario's.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Down Tilt is significantly faster, being about twice as fast.
  • Buff Pressing the Shield button during the latter half of the Dash Attack makes Luigi do a "tripping attack" that spikes opponents.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Change Forward aerial is weaker, but sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.
  • Buff The meteor smash hitbox of down aerial now covers more of Luigi's body, making it much easier to meteor smash with.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Change Down throw sends opponents on a horizontal trajectory instead of vertically.

Special attacks[edit]

  • Buff Fireballs travel in a straight diagonal arc and bounce off the floor, akin to the superballs in Super Mario Land. When holding B, Luigi will use the Thunderhand from Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga instead, an electric move that deals a single powerful blow.
  • Buff Green Missile always results in a misfire when used. They can still be charged indefinitely, but won’t gain any extra distance. The attack's priority has been increased too, now passing projectiles and opponents. Also, Luigi can pull off a short-distanced misfire (uncharged missile distance) in a 1/8 chance. Is footstool cancelable.
  • Buff Super Jump Punch's sourspot is drastically stronger, being about a third as strong as a sweetspotted Super Jump Punch. Also has Green Fire GFX.
  • Nerf A sweetspotted Super Jump Punch is weaker.
  • Buff Luigi Cyclone can cancel into a neutral, tilt, or smash attack just before the final hit when used on the ground. It also has suction while in the air.
  • Buff Negative Zone can be jump canceled during the dance and will freeze opponents entirely instead of slow them down.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change Side taunt is now his gun fingers victory pose, which fires two fireballs.
  • Change Pressing the up taunt, down taunt, up taunt makes Luigi perform the Negative Zone dance as a taunt, during which the crowd cheers and confetti and fireworks appear.
  • Buff Down Taunt has invincibility frames right when Luigi kicks, making Taunt KOs safer.

Mario[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Air speed increased
  • Buff Mario's footstool jump now damages (for 16%), as well as burying grounded opponents, and is now the strongest meteor smash in the game.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Forward smash produces a larger explosion, with more power when sweetspotted.
  • Buff Mario has a new dash attack where he slides forward with his entire body, as he did in Super Mario 64, which can be followed with a hop attack by pressing A.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Forward aerial has fire graphics, is much stronger and no longer has a sourspot.
  • Buff Down aerial is able to be cancelled into a Footstool jump or aerial attacks, including itself. It can also be used to increase the height of any jump.
  • Buff Neutral aerial now is much more stronger on startup, and can kill certain characters around the 105% range.

Throws/other attacks[edit]

  • Buff Forward, back, and up throw are much stronger, with the latter two being able to reliably KO under 150%.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Start-up and ending lag on his Fireball are significantly shorter, allowing him to shoot them at a more rapid pace. Grounded Fireballs bounce less often and come out two at a time. In addition, if one holds B, instead of launching a Fireball, Mario will use the Firebrand move from Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, a burst of flame from his palm that deals multiple flame damage hits, allowing Mario to extend combos due to being attack cancelable on hit.
  • Buff By holding B, Super Jump Punch can be performed twice in succession, akin to Pikachu's Quick Attack, and the final hit is much stronger.
  • Buff F.L.U.D.D. is always fully charged. It now pulls opponents towards Mario and can be canceled into anything except Fireball, Super Jump Punch, another F.L.U.D.D., or a jump.
  • Buff Mario Finale can be jump canceled.

Taunts[edit]

  • Buff Up taunt has armor while Mario is giant.
  • Change Successfully completing a side taunt turns him metal. Holding shield during a side taunt will not turn Mario metal.

Marth[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Walking and dashing speed have been improved.
  • Change His sword's trails when swung now vary, from green with smash attacks and blue for his tilts and aerials, to purple with his specials.

Ground Attacks[edit]

  • Buff When the attack button is held, Marth will repeat his jab combo at a rapid pace.
  • Buff When angled upwards, Marth's forward smash slides him forward a fair distance. When angled downwards, it slides him backwards a fair distance. An unangled forward smash functions similarly to how it did in normal Brawl. The forward smash also has an additional hitbox added right before the tip, that is stronger than the normal hitbox, but is not as strong as the tipper hitbox.
  • Buff Up smash now has better hitboxes on the side of the attack.
  • Buff Down tilt sends Marth forward slightly. Non-tipped down tilt sends opponents on a weak vertical trajectory, similar to Roy's down tilt in Melee.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff All aerials are faster and stronger, more noticeably the tippers.
  • Buff Down aerial has a larger sweetspot, making it much easier to meteor smash with.

Grabs and throws[edit]

Specials[edit]

  • Buff Shield Breaker pushes Marth forwards further while grounded. When airborne, it produces much more forward momentum, and is interruptible by aerial attacks during its hitboxes duration and ending lag.

  • Change Dolphin Slash plays the SFX from Melee.
  • Buff Critical Hit has been sped up and cannot be sidestepped or air dodged. It has also been given a further increase in power, now matching that of Ganondorf's Brawl- Warlock Punch.

    • Change If Meta Knight stands idle after performing a forward smash, he will point his sword out like in his side taunt, accompanied by the "Huh" SFX in his up taunt.
  • Buff Up smash is faster, and deals 2% more damage.
  • Nerf Both hits of down smash deal less damage, 1% and 3% respectively.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Change Glide attack now produces horizontal knockback instead of vertical knockback.
  • Nerf Glide attack's damage has been halved.
  • Buff Neutral Air has decreased ending lag in the air, allowing for more followups.
  • Nerf Up air has more ending lag.

  • Buff Back Air has significantly increased knockback.

Grabs and throws[edit]

  • Change Up Throw is much slower, plays the "Come back when you can put up a fight" SFX, causes a large explosion, and deals 25% damage and heavy knockback to both the opponent and Meta Knight when Meta Knight lands, essentially being used as a kamikaze attack.
  • Buff Down throw produces vertical knockback instead of horizontal. This throw is now two hits. This throw cancels into Shuttle Loop when the special button is held, which can then be followed up with an additional attack
  • Buff Forward throw has lowered end lag allowing for easier follow ups.
  • Buff Back throw has increased knockback allowing it to be a respectable kill throw without taking deadly damage and knockback from Up throw.

Specials[edit]

  • Change Mach Tornado knocks opponents outwards, lasts shorter, and can no longer be canceled into aerials. However, it has high base knockback that sends to the side, allowing the move to be a deadly edgeguarding tool that can corner carry and with no risk.
  • Buff Drill Rush is significantly quicker.
  • Buff Dimensional Cape is much stronger when used as an attack and has increased hitlag. Also, Infinite Dimensional Cape can no longer be used, but tilting the C-stick or pressing the button assigned to up-smash will make the Dimensional Cape go straight to the attack, having near-instantaneous startup if done so right at the beginning.
  • Nerf Shuttle Loop no longer includes the loop, instead leaving Meta Knight with the initial jump. As such, it also loses the glide and glide attack, leaving Meta Knight with only one (albeit the superior) glide.

Mewtwo[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Tail is drastically longer, akin to its Project M form. This significantly increases its range.
  • Nerf Double jump is shorter without a speed increase to compensate.
  • Buff Mewtwo can no longer double-jump cancel, improving its recovery. However, the benefits of Brawl-'s combo-heavy physics and Mewtwo's other changes compensate for its less effective combos out of a double jump.
  • Nerf The removal of wavedashing (except for Fox and Wolf) hinders Mewtwo's mobility.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff Jab is much faster and can be extended or stopped at any point in the multi-hit.

  • Buff Back throw is much faster.
  • Buff Up throw now deals damage as Mewtwo swirls the opponent, which also hits nearby enemies.
  • Change Down throw has slightly more knockback. While this removes Mewtwo's chaingrabs, it gives it access to more versatile and useful combos.

Specials[edit]

  • Buff Shadow Ball is stronger and passes through enemies.
  • Buff Confusion now has several smaller hits accompanying the big hit, making it do more damage and being able to hit nearby opponents.
  • Buff Teleport can be used twice, and no longer leaves Mewtwo helpless.
  • Buff Disable has been changed to Future Sight. Upon leaving the animation, Mewtwo leaves behind a ball of darkness that explodes on the spot with high damage after a few seconds. Using the move again before it explodes will instead set a new ball.

Taunts[edit]

  • Change Mewtwo’s taunt from Melee is now mapped to the down button.
  • Change His side taunt has him thrust his arm forward while sounding his cry from the Pokemon games.
  • Change His up taunt has him leap off the ground and curl up, falling asleep for a moment.

  • Buff Each hit on the jab combo deals more damage.
  • Buff Forward tilt, up tilt, forward smash, and up smash are faster in both start-up and ending lag.
  • Buff Forward smash has two varieties depending on if it is angled or not. Non-angled forward smash functions similarly to how it did in normal Brawl. An angled forward smash will create multiple smaller and weaker hitboxes instead of several strong ones, and will end with Mr. Game & Watch releasing a parachute while holding a match. The parachute contains a strong hitbox.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff If the attack button is held, his neutral aerial uses a parachute and functions similarly to how it did in Melee. If the attack button is just tapped, it'll be his neutral aerial from normal Brawl.
  • Buff Wind hitboxes on up aerial now cause slight damage and can be removed by not holding the A button.
  • Buff Down aerial always meteor smashes outside of the hitbox produced upon landing, can be made similar to its Melee incarnation when the attack button is held, and can be interrupted into a double jump or any special move after the hitbox cedes.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff The food from Chef produces vertical knockback and does fire damage and launches five projectiles at once. The pan is much stronger, but the projectiles are slightly weaker.
  • Buff Judge can be interrupted by any attack after 25 frames, and all results except for 9 have been significantly buffed, by having increased damage, and causing varying additional effects that temporarily incapacitate the opponent:
    • Buff 1 makes the opponent slide behind Mr. Game & Watch. Additionally, it only causes 1% of self-damage to Mr. Game & Watch, as opposed to 12% in normal Brawl.
    • Buff 2 produces a flower effect.
    • Buff 3 has dramatically increased hitlag.
    • Buff 4 puts the opponent to sleep.
    • Buff 5 buries the opponent.

The PK Flash projectile also explodes when it hits ground or a wall, and will explode at the end of its trajectory if Ness is hit before ending it. Additionally, the startup of PK Flash has set vertical knockback, which can be easily followed up with an uncharged PK Flash. It also travels a lot quicker and can be held for much longer.
  • Buff PK Fire has slightly less start-up and ending lag when fired. And when used in the air it can be jump canceled.
  • Buff Ness no longer becomes helpless if the projectile from PK Thunder fails to hit him. Using it for recovery gives him armor. It also has 5% light armor on startup and 10% on hold/loop.
  • Buff PSI Magnet produces a hitbox when initially used that causes light damage and vertical knockback. It can now also be cancelled via a jump, akin to Fox/Falco's reflector in Melee.

Ground attacks[edit]

  • Buff All tilts are considerably quicker.
    • Change Down tilt pushes Olimar forward a fair distance, piercing through foes.
  • Buff Forward smash and up smash distance increased.
  • Buff During down smash, Pikmin won't stop at the edge of a stage.

  • Buff Pikmin Throw is quicker and hurls Pikmin farther.
  • Buff Pikmin Order can now be canceled into anything, including itself. Deals 1% damage (non-flinching) to surrounding foes.

  • Change Down throw has additional heart sound effects, and Peach giggles when it is used, with the latter coming from unused files found in vanilla Brawl's files.
  • Buff "This is fun!" SFX played when forward throw is used, along with it being stalled during her saying it, and the forward throw is much more powerful, reliably KOing under 150%.

Stronger vegetables are color-coded: The redder they are, the stronger they are. Veggies can be plucked in the air.

Pichu[edit]

Attributes[edit]

  • Buff Pichu is significantly heavier (55 → 74).

  • Nerf Forward smash is significantly weaker (73 base, 89 growth → 69 base, 54 growth) and sends at the Sakurai angle.
    • Buff It is now a single hit that does 18% damage. When charged, it does 8% damage to Pichu but much more growth (54 → 74).

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Hitting the ground during its downward aerial causes an explosion (Zap Cannon). Boosted down aerial also meteor smashes and is a stall-then-fall.

Special moves[edit]

  • Buff Pichu's tapped neutral special is Nuzzle, which stuns opponents in front of Pichu at close range without self-damage. Pichu's held neutral special is Electro Ball, which causes Pichu to take self-damage but leave behind a sphere of electricity that can stop approaches. Electro Ball is an exception to the recoil feature, being weaker than Nuzzle.
  • Buff Pichu's tapped side special is Fling, a move that launches him forward, striking opponents at the beginning of the move. When held, side special becomes Wild Charge, which sends Pichu even farther and deals more damage at the expense of self-damage.
  • Buff Tapped up special is still Agility, but it does not damage Pichu or leave it helpless, and is one quick burst of distance that can be used up to three times in the air. Held up special is Volt Switch, which functions the same way but causes damage to both the opponent and Pichu.
  • Buff Tapped down special is Thunderbolt, which is weaker than Thunder but is faster and does not directly hit Pichu, thus removing the self-damage. Held down special is Discharge, which causes significant self-damage to Pichu, but is also much stronger, able to KO below 100% if sweetspotted.

  • Buff Skull Bash is much stronger with an electrical effect upon impact and covers much more range. If a fully-charged Skull Bash misses, however, Pikachu is likely to KO itself. On the upside, this can even KO at extremely low damage percentages and can OHKO most characters. The charge for Skull Bash can be shield canceled, but it will not retain the charge. It is granted 7% armor while charging Skull Bash. The angle and speed have been adjusted as well. It can also be wall jumped out of.
  • Buff Quick Attack meteor smashes opponents, and can now be used twice in the same direction.

Arrows fired upwards are much slower and smaller. Aerial charge animation can be cancelled near startup by pressing the shield button, which sends Pit tumbling.
  • Buff Angel Ring spins much faster, racking up damage much faster, and propels Pit further. It will also now propel Pit off ledges instead of stopping on the edge. Using Angel Ring in the air will instead make him execute a weaker glide attack. Holding the special button will make him soar horizontally after striking.
  • Buff Hitbox added to Wings of Icarus' startup. It can be used 3 times. The second can be canceled into the third.
  • Buff Mirror Shield is jump cancelable.

  • Buff Pressing Down on the Control Stick during Homing Attack's startup will execute the Bounce Attack, a rapid downward attack that bounces off the first thing Sonic hits. He will plummet to his death if there is nothing below him.
  • Buff The Spring projectile now meteor smashes. It also does not disappear after two bounces - it bounces on any floor it lands on until it is cancelled by an attack or Sonic uses another Spring.
  • Buff Spin Dash is replaced with Sonic Boost, a non-damaging instant ground or air dash faster than his dash that can be canceled into nearly anything.

  • Buff Down tilt is quicker and will stay active until a foe hits it or Wario does something else. Has an additional hitbox that is designed to hit rolling crates only.

Aerial attacks[edit]

  • Buff Forward aerial is weaker, but it can be quickly canceled into anything, giving Wario the opportunity to combo several forward aerials in succession.

  • Buff Corkscrew has been removed and replaced with a less powerful fully charged Wario Waft, granting Wario tons of height.
  • Nerf After 25 seconds, Wario may fart out a Rolling Crate. Attempting to fart out a crate prematurely will reset the cooldown and Wario will do a weak fart. Wario's attacks do less damage to rolling crates. Rolling crates are weaker and can be ducked through like platforms.

  • Buff Dash attack moves Wolf forward a good distance instead of halting all movement.
  • Buff Forward smash has two different functions depending if it's angled or not.

It can also be cancelled into a Melee air dodge on startup, allowing Wolf to wavedash when on the ground. If sweetspotted, holding B will produce horizontal knockback; otherwise, it will meteor smash. Is cancelable with a wall jump.
  • Buff Fire Wolf travels farther, and has significantly increased vertical knockback on the final hit, and has much less ending lag in the air, no longer killing all momentum upon finish. When connecting with the ground, Wolf can jump off the ground instead of entering endlag if the jump button is timed properly. When connecting with a wall, Wolf can wall jump.
    • Change If the final hit of Fire Wolf connects and the special move button is held, Wolf will howl like in his up taunt.
  • Buff Reflector knocks upwards when grounded and can be cancelled into any aerial airborne.

  • Buff When sweetspotted, the forward aerial is stronger, and has drastically increased hitlag.

  • Buff Egg Throw has a fire trail and produces a small explosion upon impact, with increased power. Eggs tossed also do not explode until impact with another character, damageable object, or wall/floor.
  • Buff Ground Pound has IASA frames. Can be interrupted into other moves, and doing so with the jump of the grounded version at specific frames will cause Yoshi to rise very high.

Zelda[edit]

If Zelda is hit while using Din's Fire, the fireball keeps heading in the same direction.
  • Buff Farore's Wind has no ending lag when used for recovery, no longer killing all momentum upon finish.

  • Change Forward throw knocks opponents down, no longer being able to chain throw them, while back throw sends opponents on a semi-spike trajectory.
