Mario's younger brother, Luigi.
Luigi Needs to be unlocked.

The King of Second Bananas has appeared as his veteran self in the latest Smash Bros. Edition, with one crazy final Smash.

Luigi's Green Missile and Super Jump Punch are keys to most of his advanced tactics. After his downward throw and the Luigi Cyclone, he can follow up with with aerial attacks that can lead to Green Missile and Super Jump Punch. Make sure your opponent thinks you're always going for an aerial attack, and they'll do anything to avoid it. This is where you catch them with a Green Missile or a Super Jump Punch immediately after they evade.

It only takes three perfect Super Jump Punches to KO most characters – fewer in some cases – and it is significantly more powerful than any of his Smash attacks. As soon as you see a character with 75% damage or more, try your hardest to hit them with it. If they're in a huge mob of people, jump into the battle and shield, dodge, or roll until you see a chance where you can KO them before your opponents do. The Super Jump Punch is very fast at executing and will execute faster than any other attack that powerful in the entire game. Making it one of (if not the) most dangerous moves in the game.

Special Attacks[edit]

Wii Remote + Nunchuk Wii Remote (sideways) Wii Classic Controller GameCube Controller Special Attack Info
B button 1 button B button B button Fireball Unlike Mario's fireballs these are not affected by gravity, making it near impossible to hit opponents that aren't on the same latitude as Luigi with it.
Right nunchuk+B button Right dpad+1 button Right lstick+B button Right control+B button Green Missile Has a 1 in 8 chance of misfiring, launching Luigi a much greater distance. Used for recovering great horizontal lengths. Often recommended over his Super Jump Punch for recovery.
Up nunchuk+B button Up dpad+1 button Up lstick+B button Up control+B button Super Jump Punch Luigi always lands on his head. Using this standing right next to an opponent results in much greater damage and knockback. It is easily Luigi's deadliest KO move, being able to KO at around 50% when sweetspotted. However, it leaves Luigi very vulnerable if it misses. Use with caution.
Down nunchuk+B button Down dpad+1 button Down lstick+B button Down control+B button Luigi Cyclone Luigi spins around, damaging enemies in the process. At the end of the attack, the enemies are flung into the air. Follow this attack with an aerial attack. Also, if you repeat pressing B mid-spin, your jump will increase in height like a third jump. Which is best if done in slow motion.

Final Smash[edit]

Luigi's Final Smash,Negative Zone

Negative Zone: Luigi dances around and projects a circular field around himself that inflicts random status effects on any opponent that enters it. Those effects are:

  1. Drastically reduced attack power.
  2. Greater launch distance when hit.
  3. Increased likelihood of slipping.
  4. Steady increase in damage percentage.
  5. Flower growth on head.
  6. Dizziness.
  7. Uncontrollable taunting.
  8. Sudden sleepiness.
  9. Decreased movement speed.

During the attack, enemies are left weak and exposed to Luigi's attacks. Recommended attacks include Luigi's Super Fire Punch and charged smash attacks. But pretty much anything (even his Down Taunt!) has the potential to be lethal.
