Luigi (Japanese: ルイージ, Ruīji) is an unlockable character in Melee. Luigi's moveset is markedly similar to that of Mario, though his attacks often differ in knockback and trajectory. Per his physics in previous Nintendo games, Luigi is a floaty character with a high jump and low traction. As a result of his low traction, Luigi can lay claim to the longest wavedash in the game, which allows him to slide across the stage in lengthy bursts at speeds nearly as fast as Captain Falcon's dash. Luigi is also well-known for his powerful aerial attacks and the hit-or-miss nature of his Super Jump Punch and Green Missile. (read further...)
