Type 1: Up close specialists Bowser Avoid, Then Throw Donkey Kong Run up to the oppnent,pick him or her up with A and R or Z,Then Captian Falcon use the Control Stick to throw the opponent into the air.Your Ganondorf opponent won't be able to attack you while in your grip. Be sure to Ice Climbers avoid any projectiles or long-range attacks as you approach. Marth Roy Use Power Moves In a Crowd The heavy-hitting characters should use their strongest moves and Smash attacks when there are many opponents crowed in an area. It takes time to use the powerful attacks,especially if you charge them up first,but in the confusion generated by many opponents battling it out in a small area, it's unlikely that anyone will notice what you're doing until it's too late. This tactic would probably fail in a one-on-on battle. Type 2:The Balanced Bunch Mario Long-Range Attacks Dr. Mario Almost all Type 2 charecters have a long-range attack.Use the Luigi long-range attack as your main line of offense,then watch your Fox opponent's reaction to determine what you should do next. Falco Kirby Stay Alert Link Type 2 charecters are very well-rounded, but they are not as tough Young Link as type 1 characters,so you need to worry about your defense a bit Zelda/Shiek more. Always prepare yourself,and keep close watch on what your opponents are up to. Use Basic Moves A type-2's normal A-Button moves are important in battle.You can use them to keep up a constant,rapid attack against your enemies, which may stifle their attacks. Some kicks are relatively long-range for a normal attack and come in very handy against oncoming enemies. Type 3:Motion Masters Peach Keep Moving,Be Sneaky Samus You should move your Type 3 charecters around a lot so that they're Pikachu always the optimal distance from their opponents. Keep a close eye Pichu on your opponents,and when you can catch them off guard,launch a Mewtwo sneak attack. Many of the Type 3 charecters' mid range and long range attacks take a while to use and leave the characters vulnerable for a short time,so use them wisely. Type 4:The Pro Players Yoshi Jump Into The Fray, Blow Away Ness Yoshi Ness Jigglypuff and Mr Game & Watch all have maves that are Jigglpuff powerful but difficult to pull off. Your best chance for using the Mr. Game & Watch characters comes when there is lots of confusion on the battlefield. You shoud pick a moment, launch an attack and take out an opponent or two without anyone noticing your moves unil it is too late. Legal Stuff I'd like to thank Nintendo Power for writing the offical players guide book and for comeing up with the strategies. Please bear with me for any typos.
