Mega Man's standard and special moves use weapons copied from the bosses he's fought throughout the Mega Man series, so he has more projectiles than any other fighter. His Final Smash now features Proto Man and Bass!
Very versatile projectile game, making him a powerful zoning character.
Short stature gives him small hurtboxes.
Capable of wall jumping.
Neutral Attack, Forward Tilt and Neutral Aerial have high priority, being able to stop many attacks and projectiles.
Forward Tilt allows him to move while shooting Mega Buster.
Up and Down Tilts are good for spacing and dealing with close-combat.
Forward Smash has very good range.
Good variety of multi-hit and single hit moves.
All his Aerial Attacks are very fast and are disjointed hitboxes, with some also having transcending priority. Back Aerial is notable for being his fastest and strongest aerial attack, while Up Aerial has powerful windboxes allied with multi-hitboxes strong enough to kill opponents at low percentages near the upper blast line.
His Down Aerial is a powerful ranged Meteor Smash.
Good at edge-guarding and counter edge-guarding.
Good vertical recovery.
Using Jump Cancel Throw is extremely effective with Metal Blade.
Lack of a proper Sex Kick Neutral Air for spacing.
Not very good against fast characters that can pressure him or interrupt his projectiles.
Few moves with KO Power aside his Smash Attacks and Up Tilt.
Limited horizontal recovery, also quite predictable.
Requires some proper spacing in order to be effective.
All Smash Attacks have high ending lag.
Neutral Attack, Forward Tilt, Neutral Aerial, Up Aerial and Forward Smash can be reflected, negated, or absorbed. This, along with his other ranged specials, makes Mega Man the character with the highest number of attacks that can be be used against him or completely nullified, giving Mega Man a huge disadvantage against these kind of opponents.
