SSBM/Kirby

From SuperCombo Wiki


Introduction

A returning member of Smash Brothers, Kirby is a character in all three games of the Super Smash Bros. series. Although tier-wise he was the third-to-top character in original beaten only by Pikachu and Fox, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, he became severely nerfed.

Currently, Kirby is ranked in the G tier in 25th/26th place (tied with Pichu). Among Kirby's best attributes includes his relatively long recovery, the ability to perform Kirbycide and a rather good edgeguard game, especially when combined with his Fence of Pain. Additionally, Kirby has a very good defensive game, due to his small size. However, Kirby's overall power has been strongly nerfed from the previous game. A majority of his attacks are considerably weaker and have smaller sweetspots. Kirby also has awful approach options, due to a poor SHFFL and the lack of a good projectile and went from having one of the best combo abilities in SSB64 to one of the worst in Melee . This, combined with a rather predictable recovery and a ease of being comboed because of his poor hitstun leads to Kirby to have generally abysmal matchups against other characters.
