In-Game Info

"Mario is an all-rounded character and very easy to pick up for new players of the game. Mario is fairly strong, medium-weighted and overall, a balanced character. Mario can easily kill with his smash attacks, forward aerial and back throw. He can ledge trump with his aerials, his fireballs and his cape, which can make opponents turn around, trumping recovery options."

Advantages

  • Mario's kill confirms are his smash attacks, forward aerial, down aerial, back throw near the ledge and Firebrand at full charge.
  • Mario's forward aerial can meteor smash, leading to some easy kills.
  • Mario's side special, Cape, can flip opponents to the opposite direction, trumping opponents should they try to get back on stage.
  • Mario's Fireballs can be used for edgeguarding, as it can trump recoveries.
  • Mario can start a combo easily with his down throw to up tilt at low percents, especially on characters with a large hurtbox (ex. Bowser).
  • Mario's down smash can punish rolls.
  • Mario can wall jump.

Disadvantages

  • Mario's up special, Super Jump Punch, is easy to trump because of its linearity and doesn't travel far.
  • If opponents are smart, Mario's Cape capabilities can backfire.
  • Mario's grab range is very short, making it hard to grab opponents.
    • On top of that, Mario's range is relatively short, so disjointed range characters (like swordfighters, ex. Link) have an advantage against him.
  • Mario's Fireballs are easy to reflect/absorb due to their slow movement.
    • Mario's Fireballs are also very weak.

Moveset

Mario can crawl and wall jump.

Miscellaneous

Mario can cancel his side taunt via rolling, so his cap will be taken off until he does his side taunt again, in which he will simply put it back on. Also, if Mario performs his side special with his cap in hand, Mario will throw it forward similar to how he throws Cappy in Super Mario Odyssey. The cap stays in place for at least five seconds before disappearing, so Mario and other characters can jump on it.
