Tips for Link

  • Link's bomb works as a psychological zoning option: place it where you don't want your opponent to be. This strategy is best against enemies with powerful and predictable projectiles.

  • A zoning Link is easily punishable with an aggressive push and punish game. If he spawns a bomb, charge at him. If he throws a boomerang, use your shield to cancel it back at him (or reflect it).
    7
    0
  • Since Link's bomb blows up if it comes into contact with fire, throwing it onto recoveries that have such properties is a good strategy. (Fox, Falco...)
    6
    0
  • While walking, Link still has his Hylian Shield pulled up. This means you can freely press forward against enemy projectiles as long as you aren't running.

  • Links dair has invincibility at tip of the sword to the hilt, and if it hits a projectile he will bounce toward the opp,great for riding projectiles to advance towards zoners like UI Goku vs Kefla

  • link's bomb is a powerful tool to condition shield or punish not shielding so mix it up! Bomb throw into grab is even a combo at mid percents.

  • Dont shield that often because if you want to escape you cant upB and ur bomb is punishable or with my main Sheik can blow your bomb with her bomb which means you Will probably die AT 70%
