King K. Rool[edit]

  • Change Down throw has less base knockback, but more knockback growth. This allows buried opponents to easily escape at low percentage, but making it more difficult to escape at high percentage. Specifically, it is worse below 125%, and better above 125%.
    • Buff These changes can set up effective mix ups between grounded or aerial attacks, such as up aerial out of down throw at lower %s for damage, while making his KO confirms more varied and even more consistent.
    • Buff This makes up smash a much more consistent option from around 90% (KOing at 100% if the correct hitbox lands), catching opponents who mash out of the bury every time. This generates very useful 50/50s which can make opponents choose to not mash (as this makes it miss), allowing potential forward smash reads.
    • Buff Up aerial is also a valid KO option due to the changes if up smash isn't considered favorable. This makes it highly effective against frame perfect mashing.
    • Buff Up Tilt usually KOs out of Down Throw on middleweight characters from around 125%, which is where the bury begins to last longer. This makes it a more consistent option, as before it was very possible to mash out at 130%.
    • Nerf This makes Instant Dash Attack much riskier against perfect frame mashing than an up tilt which allowed them to easily escape under 125%.
    • Nerf This worsens Forward tilt, having to be angled up from around 110% onwards to hit many opponents as opposed of requiring 100%.
    • Nerf The infinite jab combo that worked at 200%+ has been removed, now having the opponent "bounce" on the 3rd loop.
  • Nerf Blunderbuss has a shorter windbox duration, being shortened to 2.5 seconds.
  • Bug fix Blunderbuss no longer turns opponents invisible when KOing at their last stock.
  • Nerf Propellerpack's horizontal hitbox is smaller, making it difficult to KO opponents straight to the upper blast zone and making it less safe when recovering. Most notably, it doesn't snap to the ledge as often as it used to.

  • Buff Incineroar can grab ledges faster after using up aerial (frame 58 → 56).
