Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Due to its status as bottom tier in SSB4, Jigglypuff has been significantly buffed in the transition to Ultimate. Most notable direct changes are done to its aerial attacks - they have greatly reduced landing lag and endlag. This combined with improved airspeed allows Jigglypuff to flow its aerial attacks into another, significantly improving its damage output. In addition, some of its grounded moves are safer, Pound travels further than in SSB4 (although it still lacks in effectiveness compared to the versions in Melee and Brawl) and Rest gaining stronger knockback as well as it now being interruptible significantly earlier.
The biggest buffs to Jigglypuff, however, come from the reworked game mechanics in Ultimate. Changes to airdodges greatly improves Jigglypuff's ability to use its aerial kit much more efficiently, and notably regaining its strong edgeguarding capabilities. This combined with its improved aerials and mobility allows Jigglypuff to perform techniques like its renowned Wall of Pain more effectively. In addition, Jigglypuff arguably benefits the most from the weakening of the rage mechanic, which slightly improves Jigglypuff's otherwise abysmal endurance.
With all these changes, Jigglypuff is significantly more effective than in Brawl and SSB4, now becoming a proper glass cannon, although how viable it actually will be remains to be seen.
Classic Mode: All Original, All 64
Jigglypuff fights the cast of the original Super Smash Bros..
Note: Every stage plays a track from Super Smash Bros.. Due to Planet Zebes and Sector Z being the only N64 stages that didn't return, Samus and Fox had to be paired with Yoshi and Kirby respectively.
Role in World of Light
Although Jigglypuff does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, it was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
