Tips for Ridley

  • Your tail is technically a disjoint. This means that it has no hurt box. You essentially have a sword tail. Because of this, Nair, Fair, Ftilt, Dtilt, and rapid jab all are disjointed in some ways.
    9

  • Ridley has an incredible offstage presence. Don't be afraid to jump off stage and throw a few nairs or fairs out.
    6
    0
  • Side b if done from off stage to the ledge can grab opponents and place them under the stage. This is extremely effective for a 0 to death kill on a greedy player. Be sure to not spam this.
    5
    0
  • Remember to make sure you don't Pirates Rush too much (side-B) as it contains a lot of endlag resulting in an easy punish. N-air is your friend.
    3
    0
  • When using Up Special, note that it cannot perform the same way as Fox's. Facing forwards and right direction results in a slightly downwards thrust, backwards and left results in slightly up thrust
    3
    0
  • Ridley's down-b is already a pretty bad move, but especially against anyone with a counterattack (Lucario, FE chars, etc). A counterattack multiplier against Ridley's down-b can easily KO him at 0%.

    0
  • While you can play aggressively and do okay, your best option generally is more on the defensive side. Play safely using down tilt and forward tilt to keep your opponent off of you
    1
    0
  • Down-throw is a combo throw at low percents and a kill throw at super high percents. Use it at around 0-30% (depends on the character) and at 180+% (again, varies by character)

  • Ridley has some good edge-guarding options. Aside from spamming Neutral-B, you can meteor smash foes with D-air and Up-B (if aiming downwards). Be careful if you’re using them off the stage, though!
