While it was neat for Sakurai (the series’ creator) to put Miis as Smash Fighters in Smash 4, I’m not exactly thrilled to see their return in Ultimate. I think they were all one fighter last time, but they separated them in three different classes for Ultimate.
The best thing about the Mii fighters, and Mii Brawler in general is the Mii costumes. Some of them are funny like a bear or a maid, while others can be from other Nintendo games. Like Ribbon Girl (above) and Spring Man from Arms (one of my favorites), Toad and Yoshi from Mario, and even Samus from Metroid and Link from Zelda
Mii Brawler is pretty good at hand-to-hand combat, but his combos are a bit lacking. Some of that power is a little wasted, I just felt too slow and clunky a lot of times.
Mii Brawler’s biggest flaw is their recover. If Mii Brawler is even knocked sort-of-far away from the stage, they’re toast. I lost too many matches because of this.
Their final smash Omega Blitz is okay, a little easy to miss. They basically catch an opponent and pummel them in the air and crash them down to the ground at the end.
When Kirby takes Mii Brawler’s power, he gets to toss a heavy iron ball. This was actually a really useful power, and came in handy during team battles were two opponents couldn’t dodge them as easily as it is during one-vs-one.
But I just stunk with Mii Brawler. Maybe not the lowest tier of all the Smash Ultimate fighters, but I like Mii Brawler the least. I’ve seen a few good Mii Brawler players online, but I never got too nervous when facing one. Now I know why.
