R.O.B. needs to be unlocked

R.O.B. has very good moves both on ground and in the air. All his tilts are very fast moves with less knockback that should be used to push back and pressurize an opponent. The down tilt also has a chance to trip the opponent which is somewhat useful. His down smash is amazing and is always good to use, his forward smash is very strong, and he also has a strong up smash with somewhat limited range.

In the air, R.O.B can either approach with his forward air which is a very fast aerial with considerable knockback, or try to K.O. with harder to hit but more rewarding neutral and back aerials. The back aerial will be especially hard to hit with since it is a rocket move and it doesn't hit a wide area, but the neutral air hits all around him and sends the opponent far. His down aerial is also spike which is useful because R.O.B. can easily make it back to the stage after using it, as with any of his aerials.

Standard Attacks[edit]

Wii Remote + Nunchuk Wii Remote (sideways) Wii Classic Controller GameCube Controller Standard Attack Info
A button 2 button A button A button Robo Combo (3%, 3% total of 6%) R.O.B. punches twice if you press it twice. This move is a good way to deal of a quick first-hit (if that's what you're in too.) and can be used to hit foe away from you so you can use a different attack.
Right nunchuk+A button Right dpad+2 button Right lstick+A button Right control+A button Robot Fist (3%) Punches with one arm. Can be angled. This is a move you shouldn't use so often but can come in handy when the time is right.
Up nunchuk+A button Up dpad+2 button Up lstick+A button Up control+A button Robot Push (9%)R.O.B. volleys upwards. This move is good for good amounts of combos and very good for aerial juggling. You should spam this move as if you use it to frequently, the opponent will know when you will use it and adjust to your playing style and do an aerial dodge. Though use it for juggling and quick ways to get foe a higher damage.
Down nunchuk+A button Down dpad+2 button Down lstick+A button Down control+A button Low Push (5%)Pushes arms at the ground. This move is one that you shouldn't use very often unless absolutely necessary. The reasoning is because when your foe starts edgeguarding this is one of the only moves to use specifically. Also note, that this move could causes opponent to trip for about 3 seconds and this lets you charge up a different attack.
A buttonwhile dashing 2 buttonwhile dashing A buttonwhile dashing A buttonwhile dashing Robot Thrust (5%)Thrusts his arm forward. Other then a good way to start the match for a first hit, you shouldn't use this TOO often.

Final Smash[edit]

Diffusion Beam

Diffusion Beam: R.O.B. fires a continuous beam from its eyes. Great for knocking an opponent off and guarding the edge. The cool thing about this move is that R.O.B. can use his other moves (besides Robo Beam) at the same time. So you can pull off some awesome combos with Gyros and Grabs. This Final Smash is not forever however so KO the enemies fast.

There's also a glitch where rob can jump into the bridge of eldin when it's broken and right as the bridge is forming, with good timing, you can use his Final smash FOREVER!
