|Super Smash Bros. Hassle|
|Official Debut||Dark Souls (2011)|
|Final Smash||Wrath Of The Gods|
Solaire of Astora is a character in Dark Souls. Solaire is first found just in front of the bridge that leads to Undead Parish, gazing at the sun. Speaking to him here will give the player the White Sign Soapstone and allow Solaire to be summoned to fight the Bell Gargoyles as a Gold Phantom.
In the Super Smash Bros. Hassle tier list, Solaire is ranked at 2ND. Solaire is one of the strongest characters in the entire game, as well as having a lot of finishers. He is a heavyweight, making him difficult to KO. He also has amazing ground game and can kill under 90% damage. He also has strong KO and aerial options, such as his up aerial, and side smash. Solaire also has low lag on some of his attacks, like his back aerial, and forward air. Solaire also has decent edgeguarding, and a surprisingly great recovery for a heavyweight, and he can combo you multiple times. He can also sweetspot the edge pretty decently, and he also has amazing throws, such as down throw being used as a punish option, as well as amazing frame data. Despite all of these pros, he does have some cons. He is kinda slow, both on ground and attack-wise. He also has a large hitbox, making it easy to hit him. Solaire also has one of the worst chaingrabs out of the entire game. However, all of his pros greatly outweigh his cons, and he has been seen as a very viable character in both competitive play and casual play and he has seen amazing tournament results.
