Tips for Roy

  • A skilled Roy can beat any Marth.
    37
    2
  • Do not always land with aerials. Your sweet spot is at the hilt and will be easily countered by shield > grab. Once the opponent is conditioned to shield, land with grab. Then mixup.
    24
    2
  • Master the Jab > Bair combo, it is your most reliable kill option
    20
    1
  • Never stop moving. Do no approach with shield or grab. Pressure shields with jabs and down tilt. Bait and punish with Flare Blade.
    16
    0
  • When an opponent is shielding, stagger when you click the attacks of his side B to either make opponent drop shield, or be able to make an escape
    15
    1
  • crouch cancel ftilt is better than dash attack because it leaves you less vulnerable. practice it in training mode a lot so you don't accidentally dash attack while going for kills.

  • Watch Izaw's Art of Roy video. It's definitely worth it, he explains neutral very thoroughly in a short manner. However, though he explains the common neutral, you can change him up to your own style

    0
  • Roys advantage state is f****** oppressive. His combo game is great, he can get alot out of downthrow follups and reads, is an amazing techchaser. Go shmoovin around, find an opening and go FIRE
    7
    0
  • Use sliding forward tilt, c-stick set on tilt, quickly move your direction from one side to the other simultaneously flicking the c-stick
    2

  • Fight them ghost's bruh you'll just win
    2
    0
  • If you're going to use forward finisher on side b, work in some up variants on hits 2 and 3 or just 3, depending on the character. This will help the finisher hit the sweetspot.
    3
    1
  • Roy is kinetic. Move those feet and attack, mix-up with grabs and jab. Against low-mid level players who roll towards center stage from the ledge, position yourself so you can neutral b or side smash.

  • If you hit his side B use it as forward-forward-up-forward to maximize the chance of hitting the strong hitbox which kills very early
    2
    1
  • Roy is a bait-and-punish type of character. His job is to overwhelm and pressure his opponent without leaving himself too open for punishment. Look for openings and almost always fight up-close.
    3
    2
  • Be patient. Roy might be a rushdown swordie but spamming everything doesn't achieve much. Learn to tomahawk and mix-up. side b kills at about 75% from the ledge if done with the forward finisher.
    1
    0
  • After a D-Throw, you can follow up with about 2-3 FAirs, if not more. D-Tilt at ledge can mess up a lot of recoveries with the sourspot.

  • Roy is literally the most Unga Bunga character on the roster... you're good
    2
    6
  • When using his side b, use the up one bc it combos better with nair and fair.
