Tips for King K. Rool

  • King K rool has the most golden belly
    8
    1
  • 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.
    6
    2
  • 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.
    3
    0
  • 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
    3
    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)
    4
    3
  • King K. Rool also has the smallest dick in smash ( yes smaller than peach)
    6
    5
  • 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.

  • Abuse his super armor until high dmge then run liek a puss and throw ledge camp with cannonballs and crown.
    0
    0
  • 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.
    0
    1
  • 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.
    0
    1
  • 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.

    2
  • King k fool is a gay boi and if you play him you are also gay
    2
    4
  • King K. Rool is a gay broken character that should not exist. (Still easy to beat though when you’re a Kirby main)
    2
    6
  • Spam neutral B from one side of the stage. When your opponent approaches, use up B to move to other side of stage.
