Elegant's playstyle remains mostly the same from SSB4 to SSBU, and is highly characterized through his potent punish game, his quick movement, and unpredictable choices in neutral. He has a mastery of Luigi's combos and recovery, making use of his powerful grab and combo game, and offsetting the character's exploitable recovery by recovering in different and unusual ways. Due to the amount of combo starters Luigi has, Elegant uses these to frame trap and DI mixup his opponents, doing massive amounts of damage and potentially pulling a zero-to-death combo.
Elegant was also well known for his ability to button mash efficiently. This skill was especially evident in his ability to spike opponents with Luigi Cyclone in SSB4, which is only possible if the player mashes enough to make Luigi rise and prevent the attack's final hitbox from connecting. As Elegant was proficient as this technique, his edge guarding ability was on point, allowing him to gimp players at low percentages and make comebacks off of a single neutral win. Additionally, he would make great use of Luigi Cyclone to mix up his recovery, as his proficiency in mashing allowed him to gain significant height from the move. Although these effects were removed in Ultimate, effectively worsening the move by taking out its ability to gimp and removing its recovery potential, Elegant makes use of Luigi Cylone's newly added trait of having invincibility frames within the startup of the move to combo break his opponents, kill off the top of the stage, brute force his way through an opponent, or cover the ledge. Elegant also makes use of Luigi's newly added tether to create space between him and his opponent, start combos, and edgeguard.
Elegant is also known for his upper body shake he does before sets, which he has dubbed the, "Elegant Shake" which he claims gets rid of nerves he may have before a set.
