Tips for Kirby

  • Don't spam specials like Down-B/Up-B. Even though Kirby is a very forgiving beginner friendly character, overly relying on these specials promotes bad habits. Don't spam his specials.
    27
    3
  • Abuse Down Tilt. Learn to abuse crouch. Also abuse up tilt.
    14
    2
  • Don't worry about falling; Instead play aggressive to wall characters with bad recovery.
    7
    0
  • Don't get desperate! If you don't have a neutral-B ability for a while, don't sweat it. If your opponent sees you trying to get their ability, they'll punish you hard.
    7
    2
  • Weak hits of f-air combo into f-smash. Use f-air close to ground, land before strong hit, and then f-smash. There is also a Kirby tutorial I recommend checking out by Juggleboy on YT

  • At low percents, Downthrow - Fair is a true combo, and at mid percents, multiple fairs can combo into each other, so use this on poor recovery characters to carry them off stage.

    7
  • Inhale offstage is a great tool, but people will hate you for doing it. Works great on alot of bad recovery characters, or if kirby has all of his jumps, a back-air stage spike to kill slow recoveries

  • Kirbys biggest weakness is his range, especially against swordsmen. A trick to do decent damage while keeping yourself safe is to Up+Special with the tip of your blade while your target is midair.

  • Don’t waste up and down throws if they won’t finish the stock, as they will get stale and deal less damage and knockback. Instead, use down throw to rack up damage.

  • Forward Tilt is almost always a better alternative to jab.

  • Watch the smashers Poyo and Komota. They are considered the 2 best Kirby players in the world.

  • Heavies at 0% percent can get chain grabbed by forward throwing into fair and follow up with a grab into another fair or dair

  • kirby is just plain annoying when you or someone else spams with it. players that spam with Kirby are just dumb. they try to act good but in reality there not. just play with more agile characters.

  • Unlike SSB4, Alot of kirby's copy abilities are pure garbage due to mechanic changes. Mario's is useless (1-frame jump to fireball is not as floaty) for example, but there are many others too.

  • Kirby May Be Able To Take An Easy Stock with Kirbicide but you may have had an advantage and you just brought both damage to 0 and it can be anyones game.
