Right before the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo gave us a look at the first DLC character which was… Piranha Plant from Mario. Which was a character NOBODY asked for, but ironically he is actually pretty good in the game.
He’s quick and agile, despite the terracotta clay keeping his vines in. Some of his moves aren’t super useful. Like this dark cloud (poison?) is pretty avoidable. I usually would use it to make someone run away scared.
Same with the long reach attack. A bit tricky to aim and even if it hits, it’s not a game-changer.
His recover is really excellent, He basically can fly anywhere and everywhere. It also does a little damage to anyone caught in your path.
His Final Smash is Petey Piranha. I was thinking he was going to transform as the giant piranha plant, but you can stay and fight while his “big brother” takes care of everyone.
Not the greatest final smash, but Petey Piranha has helped me out a good number of times.
When Kirby takes his power, he gets the ability to throw this spiky ball. For both fighters, it’s pretty good to use. Especially in team battles as it’s harder for your opponents to see and dodge.
I did a bit better than I expected with him. We all might complain when our favorites aren’t in the game, but I can’t complain when a character is good.
