@JackEatsSparrows The sprite of the Masked man used in Smash Ultimate is from a sprite sheet created on DeviantArt to compare his work with the Masked Man sprite from Mother 3. It is a slightly modified version of the one in Mother 3 and the sprite that is made transparent and mostly cut out in Smash is the one that was created by the artist.

Uhmmm giga Bowser.. ... Just how. I got Curry Charizard in like 4 tries. I'm on my 30th with gb... Can't get anywhere

That's just a slight edit of an official sprite. To be honest they could argue they changed the same four pixels on their own by accident and that would be possible.

@NEStalgia if I can beat him as Jigglypuff, you can do it.

If you want to rack up some extra damage to start off with, try equipping some damaging effect or item, like a ray gun or curry.

Using Primal Groudon should help too.

@Delibheel i have Curry. Tried the whole roster. I'm on my 60 somthingth try. Barely get him to 1/3 health. Can't even damage him more than 15% with puff.... It's infuriating. Hours of trying again and again. I need get 2 attacks in, he gets like 4 grabs.

@NEStalgia try quipping a level 99 primal groudon, he gives fire resistance and has a respectable power level.

Then try to play it safe with a good jumper so you can go around him. If you notice he's charging his up smash while you're above him then dodge immediately out of danger.

Use aereals and ranged attacks and go in and out so you don't stay close to him for too long.

Don't rush it, go bit by bit.

If you have a spirit that gives a bottled fairy, you can also try to equip it and use special moves so you don't throw the bottle by accident. It will automatically cure you once you hit 100% damage.

I pretty much played the entire adventure mode as Simon/Richter and I never noticed you can hold down A (or whatever your neutral attack is assigned to) to make him hold out his whip, then you can control it with the left analog stick. It's kinda fun to make a spiral of death.

Okay, video is up...just a small profanity warning at the very beginning. It's not a very big deal, though. (it's just text, lol)

@Delibheel I did manage to finally beat him. It took over an hour and well over 60 tries It was awful. Almost made me just walk away from the game. I don't have any LV99 spirits yet. Not far on a few of them, 70's or so, but no 99s. I ended up doing it with Capt. Falcon (which is funny since I never use him), Rabid Mario (only one slot but jump up (superstar)), and some other support spirit with jump up (superstar.) I usually rely on the auto select for spirits up to a point....this time it never suggested fire resist. And kept suggesting Yarn Yoshi (weight down) which seems odd considering the spike up attack. Basically smash attacks, even flicks seemed to do twice the damage of even Falcon Punch or any tilt special. So I'd get one or two smash's in, then jump high to avoid whatever attack (and luckily went off the level and hung on the edge a while with 2 fire attacks.) That was painful. Glad it's over but it leaves me afraid of whats to come.

Also, how DO you play Jigglypuff? I can damage nothing significantly...the tilt specials all seem impossible to use. Sing works sometimes but sleep still never seems to do anything.

@JackEatsSparrows So GS shipped my wireless GCN. The same day I ordered a wireless GCN from Target since that wasn't going to arrive. They will arrive on the same day. Ugh. Maybe I should scalp it, they're up to $140 on Amazon. My wired PowerA GCN got me through giga bowser (and didn't break at the abuse....) So I'm sold...though the pro really is nicer in most ways. I never noticed how floppy the sticks are until I tried the GCN. Great for shooters and 3rd party action games though. GCN will have to be for Smash and Bayo3

@NEStalgia you can level up your spirits by feeding them in the spirits menu.

Jigglypuff is an all around easy character to use. Specially effective against large fighters.

During regular non boss battles, Rest (down B) is your easy kill button. You NEED to make direct contact with your enemy for this attack to do anything. Just being next to them is not enough, try to jump into the enemy.

Landing a Rest will launch your opponent, usually killing them instantly when around 60-so%, but even before that it will give them the flower status, which constantly damages them. You will remain asleep for like a second or two after using it, so it's important to use it wisely and time things correctly, because you can be easily punished for misusing it. Large enemies have larger hitboxes, which means landing a Rest is easier on them.

Never use it unless there's ground below you, because you will fall to your doom otherwise.

Sing (up B) is rather fun to use as long as you don't forget it's not a recovery move. The more damaged your enemy is, the longer it will stay asleep. This will be your chance to jump in with a Rest, or to charge a smash attack. This move is specially effective against single targets, and new character challengers are specially affected by it, for some reason they just really love walking into you.

Pound (side B) always does around 15%, has a relatively large hitbox, and can end up trapping your opponent for a while if you continually use it. You can also use it to extend your horizontal recovery a bit if you use it between jumps. It is very strong against shields.

Rollout (neutral B) is stronger this time around. Just charge it a bit and let go, you'll hit hard. You can also change directions while you roll. Just make sure you don't go flying off the stage, it's very easy to end up KO-ing yourself if you use it carelessly.

As for other moves, Jigglypuffs aereals are all rather good, and having so many jumps you will probably spend a lot of time airborne.

Don't overuse the shield, unlike other characters, Jigglypuff has a bad side effect if you break it's shield. If it breaks, you will very likely lose a life unless there's a hard roof above you.

@NEStalgia Now you have me wondering about that PowerA. Do you use the wireless one?
And you’re def gonna want to get some 99s when u unlock the gym, sort your spirits by Condition. Ones with a red arrow thing on the card level up faster.

Gigs Bowser is rough, but there are so many more nightmares to come in your future. Ness and Lucas also are good aerial fighters due the the float fall they have.

@ReaderRagfihs After the way this morning has gone, I’m definitely ready to smash things lol

@Delibheel That sounds like a very technical character. I've been trying to play everyone, but Yoshi, Pikachu, Lucario, Kirby seem to be my most used (so far.) Mii Swordfighter is cheat button for horde battles though.

One thing I chronically underuse is shield/dodge. I'm almost always offensive or evasive.....most matches I never even shield at all. I also very very very rarely attempt grabs. It's so risky.

@JackEatsSparrows Right now I have the wired one. Wireless arrives in a day or two (two of them, now, apparently.....thank's for your helpful order update information GameStop!)

There's mixed reports about the "feel" of the PowerAs. Some say it feels just like OEM, some say it feels a little off, and cramped. I do find it cramped, but I'm getting used to it now and don't mind, and I can't compare to OEM because I can't find my WiiU edition OEM & adapter, so that might be the legit original feel. The PowerA has the start/select/home/capture buttons though which is nice. The joysticks and buttons feel genuine though. Note the ZR/ZL (yes they have ZR and ZL are bigger and nicer than OEM, but are not analog so you need to depress down to the click to activate (a least on wired.) Some hate that, some don't mind. The wired one is also light....really light...there's nothing inside but an empty plastic housing and a tiny circuit board. Wireless gets batteries to add weight. Apparently it has motion control inside for other games, but no rumble.

Personally the Pro feels like a much more solid, premium piece of equipment, and fits more comfortably in the hand. Going from the plastic toy GCN/PowerA to the Pro feels like going from a Radio Flyer wagon to a Mercedes. BUT the button layout of GCN works so nice for Smash, and most importantly the stiffer sticks and octagonal gates can be helpful. I probably do as well with either, and I miss HD rumble and the solid feel of Pro with the GCN/PowerA, but it's really fun to play on

@ReaderRagfihs Everything jigglypuff SOUNDS like I'd love it. And yet I can't damage a thing with it

@NEStalgia Hmm. The trade off of rumble holds me back for now. I really like feedback in my controllers, and I’ve done Smash 4 with the WiiU pro anyway. Think I’ll just stick with Switch Pro awhile.
I typically play rush offense, too. I’ve gotten better at aerial dodging but that only came about after many panicked button presses.

On my birthday yesterday, I got Super Smash Bros Ultimate as a payment (Not a birthday present, mind you.) for November. And I am thinking of starting on Adventure Mode. I have a few questions about that mode.

If I rescue and unlock a fighter in Adventure Mode, will that fighter also be unlocked in the main game outside of Adventure mode?

@Alantor28

Yes. The opposite (unlocking in the main game) doesn't unlock in WoL, however.
