Basic Techniques[edit]

Standard Attacks[edit]

Button(s) Description/notes
A button A quick punch.
A button A button Two quick punches.
A button A button A button Two punches then he strikes with his knee.
Arcade-Modifier-Tap.png A button Same as the above combo but he punches rapidly after the knee.
Forward + A button Kick out in front of him.
Dash + A button Rams into you with his shoulder.
Down control + A button Kneels down and "trips" you with a ground kick.
Up control + A button Brings his foot above his head and slams it down onto the ground.
Smash Forward + A button Thrusts his elbow forward, sending the opponent away in flames. When holding an item, he will send them upward instead (see Advanced Techniques).
Smash Down control + A button He brings his foot behind him, then strongly kicks fowrard, then behind him.
Smash Up control + A button He ducks then kicks twice above his head. Usually the first kick is weak putting the enemy in perfect position for the second kick. If the opponent is far from him and gets hit with just the foot, it'll send him flying.
A button (Lying down) Does a handstand, then does the splits while upside down attacking both in front of him and behind him at the same time, then flips back onto his feet.
A button (Hanging of Edge) Captain Falcon jumps back onto the edge, then does a quick kick.

Aerial Attacks[edit]

Button(s) Description/notes
A button He kicks out in front of him twice.
Forward + A button He rams his knee in front of him. If your timing is off, it'll be very weak. If you connect just as he executes it, it'll be very strong and the enemy will get sent flying at a low trajectory. And he gets electrocuted.
Backwards + A button He swings his fist behind him.
Down control + A button He rams his feet downward sending opponents downward. If the opponent is on the ground, they will bounce off of the floor into the air.
Up control + A button He does a backflip in the air, attacking with his feet.

Special Attacks[edit]

Button(s) Attack Image Description/notes
B button Falcon Punch Melee-FalconPunch.png He charges up this punch for a little less than a second then unleashes a fiery attack that sends opponents flying quite far, even with the slightest damage. Also, as he does the punch, there's a large falcon in flames that you can see. It's possible to KO an opponent with 0% damage.
Up control + B button Falcon Dive Melee-FalconDive.png He jumps into the air, attempting to grab an enemy. If he does then he attacks then causes an explosion, sending you away, in flames, might I add. If you've double jumped and you get hit, you can double jump again. If you connect with this move you can repeat it.
Down control + B button Falcon Kick Melee-FalconKick.png On the ground, he slides across the ground with a "fire forcefield" in front of him. In the air, he dives downward in the same fashion.
Left control (Right control) + B button Raptor Boost Melee-RaptorBoost.png On the ground, he charges forward for a short distance, and when he connects, he sends the opponent upward, in flames again. An aerial Raptor Boost will send the opponent downward, but be careful, because you'll lose all attacking ability, as if you used an Up control + B button.


Button(s) Description/notes
Down control He throws the opponent on the ground. Follow up with a Raptor Boost.
Forward He punches the opponent up into the air. Many moves can follow this.
Up control He throws the opponent. Follow up with a forward aerial if the opponent is at a high enough percent.
Backwards He kicks the opponent from behind himself. On the edge, you can follow up with a meteor smash.

Advanced Techniques[edit]

Double Double Jump[edit]

Double jump, then do a Falcon Kick. Afterwards you can Double jump again. Since he loses a lot of height after the kick, only use it if you are hit away from the stage on a high trajectory.

Melee Weapon Smash[edit]

When Falcon smashes with a melee item, he thrusts it forward and jams it up. The upward jam will launch weak enough enemies up. Using the homerun bat ends in a star KO. He also launces a barrage of stars (about five or six) with the star rod.

Raptor Boost Kick[edit]

Immediately after using the raptor boost on a foe, use his up smash attack as they are coming down, sometimes you can juggle your opponent with his up smash. Note, this only works if you are on the ground with his raptor boost and are hitting them up.

Meteor Smash[edit]

Now this strategy is to use the meteor smash to eliminate your opponent. Before trying, make sure your foe has at least 120% damage count. If you use this in a bonus timed match or in classic/all-star mode, you can get about 400% everytime you do this. Now there are multiple ways to start but only one way to wrap it up. You can

  • B button + Right control or B button + Left control then Down control + A button either near the edge or the far left/right side of the screen (because if you do it in the middle then they will hit the platform).
  • Throw Up control and time a double jump to where they are near and you have enough time to use the Down control + A button without them escaping. It sounds hard but it is very easy.
  • Last but not least use your crouch A button attack and time your jump to be close and have enough time to hit with your Down control + A button.
