Excellent combo game, many tilt attacks, aerials, and even special attacks usually combo into other aerials.
Up-Smash posseses a windbox that draws enemies closer.
Posesses a meteor smash: downward aerial.
Up-Special does not put him into helpless fall, meaning that he can further combo out of recovering, which further increases his combo game. He can also vertically air-dodge to gain extra height.
The spring from his Up-Special actually has a hitbox, which makes it useful for gimping opponents trying to recover. Furthermore, it does not count as a projectile, meaning it can be neither pocketed nor reflected.
Fastest dash speed in the game.
Can wall jump.
Incredibly lightweight, making him easy to K.O. before 100%.
Heavy reliance on combos, requiring them to rack up damage.
Few reliable kill moves, with his specials, again, there to increase enemy damage.
Fast dash speed makes him hard to control at times, and makes combos easy to mess up.
His Final Smash, Super Sonic, is rather easy to avoid and can easily be air-dodged through.
