Tips for King K. Rool

  • King K rool has the most golden belly
    54
    4
  • Your crown and cannon (side b and neutral b) have great synergy. Spam the crown to hit them from behind and trap them between the crown and your bullets. Also, abuse your super armor on down smash
    24
    2
  • K. Rool’s down-throw is good, but his up-throw deals 20% damage, the most damaging throw in the game. At low %, you can follow up with an up-tilt or aerial, which is useful if below a high platform.
    24
    4
  • The best way to beat King K Rool is to stay out of his effective range and force him to approach. He's pretty slow and his specials don't have nearly enough range to zone you out. Play Patiently.
    13
    2
  • Nair is a strong edgeguarding tool, allowing you to gimp characters with short or linear recoveries fairly easily thanks to its armor and low launch angle. (Ex Marios, most FE characters, Cloud)
    14
    3
  • He do be kinda thicc doe
    11
    2
  • Lore them in to the suck and cuck and cheese 3 stocks
    10
    1
  • spam nair till its almost broken it has super armor and its fast.
    8
    0
  • You gotta play KRool when you play K. Rool
    8
    0
  • If you're under the stage against Ivy, you better delay your Up B (hopefully one will screw up) or you're so screwed, he'll DAir you and kill you off "skill"
    5
    0
  • If you manage to get a shield break on your opponent, my favorite way to kill them is by performing this combo at roughly 100%. Push them to the edge, crown-a-rang AWAY, Jump*2, B-Air as they get hit.
    5
    0
  • His throws are your most reliable kill options, especially down throw. Follow up with an Ftilt or Utilt, or read when they'll pop out with an Uair or Usmash.
    5
    0
  • Watch many K. Rool montages, it helps trust me
    6
    1
  • Did you look up “krool” on twitter too?
    5
    0
  • When playing against Snake, MANY like to go high when recovering so if you think you can catch one (and/or read it's airdodge), go for an Up B and steer it as well to kill one up the top
    5
    0
  • Hope your Up Tilt hits, if it whiffs or misses you're getting punished

  • King K. Rool is the best heavy. The most commonly used gimp is the SUCC & CUCC. The easiest way to start it is by Grabbing ledge, then jump up twice, Neutral B, SUCC your opponent to Stage Spike them

  • Focusing too much on his specials in neutral leaves you open, use them in advantage states. Use them sparingly while aggressively trading damage using your quick armored moves like ftilt and nair.

  • DTilt can shift K. Rool's hurtbox (massive) to avoid low level ledge getup attacks and also punish

  • Forward Air is big (disjoint) and also a kill move at decent percent, also has little landing lag, abuse as much as you can

  • Use your crown carefully, losing it puts him in major disadvantage, also picking it up has a good chunk of lag unless cancelled by any other move, you can also slide with picking it up

  • Up Air is a nice kill move somewhat close to the blastzone, be aware of its endlag and use to recover better, using that immediately out if hitstun will make Rool fall with the hitbox active to escape

  • The only way to really style as the krok is by hitting your opponent into a floating cannon ball or comboing off returning crown. It'll take some labbing but its hella satisfying.

  • K. Rool's neutral is his crown, grabs and tilts. You have to know your spacing well to land the crown and tilts without being punished for it.

  • Blunderbuss at ledge can be beaten by a getup attack, if you predict neutral getup or getup attack, go for Down Smash before you find out what the opponent does

  • Down Tilt buries more than Down Throw so go for that when you need to secure a kill, also a nice 2-framing move, Forward Throw at 0 leads to some combos (Dash Attack/Jab), Down Smash can 2f too

  • At the ledge, Up Smash is a nice option to cover many ZSS mains using Down B to recover over Up B or read ledge jumps if you time the 6th frame of the main hit, its hella satisfying to get it trust me

  • Throwing Crown backwards can make a hazard for recoveries or gimp terrible ones, be sure to get it back quickly when you do and read their option to punish their attempts.

  • If you can position yourself and perfectly time the frame of the main hit of Up Smash, you can punish a ledge jump -> NAir! I tried on B&K.

  • Throwing Crown backwards can help with recovery as it gives a decent momentum boost, just don't be stuck in the startup animation/endlag of the move

  • KKR's belly armor was recently buffed hard to avoid most one-shots so try to use it more often, Crown armor was also buffed to tank most projectiles and a Arsene BAir, try to use it at times as well

  • K. Rool has an infinite. To perform this infinite, you first down throw, jab, then once the opponent mashed out, you re-grab and repeat the process. This is the only thing that makes him viable.

  • K.rool counters non-fast characters, characters with no projectiles, characters with projectiles that get shat by crown. His counter is speedy characters that rush him down like Pichu or Fox.

  • K. Rool's counter is so bad it's not even worth using. Use your belly armor instead to prevent smash attacks but not to much or else you get punished hard.

  • Your crown and cannon (side b and neutral b) have great synergy. Spam the crown to hit them from behind and trap them between the crown and your bullets. Also, abuse your super armor on down smash

  • K. Rool’s down-throw is good, but his up-throw deals 20% damage, the most damaging throw in the game. At low %, you can follow up with an up-tilt or aerial, which is useful if below a high platform.

  • The best way to beat King K Rool is to stay out of his effective range and force him to approach. He's pretty slow and his specials don't have nearly enough range to zone you out. Play Patiently.

  • Nair is a strong edgeguarding tool, allowing you to gimp characters with short or linear recoveries fairly easily thanks to its armor and low launch angle. (Ex Marios, most FE characters, Cloud)
