1-Introduction
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Hello everyone, and welcome to my Roy FAQ. My name is 
Funkytoad, and I'm an avid gamer. I very much enjoy Super 
Smash Bros Melee, and have "mastered" Roy. Now I shall pass 
on my knowledge to you ^_^ I'll be holding your hand through 
everything that you could ever want to do with Roy...except 
that...get your mind out of the gutter!

///////////
2-Controls
\\\\\\\\\\\

Analog Stick-The round appendage protruding from the left 
side of your controller. Ya can't miss it-Moves Roy. If you 
hold left or right, Roy will move in that direction. If you 
tap it left or right and hold it, Roy will dash in that 
direction. If you hold down, Roy will duck. If you press up, 
Roy will jump. You can do one jump off the ground, and one 
in mid-air.

D-Pad-The four directional arrows right below the Analog 
Stick-Pressing up on the D-Pad will make Roy do his taunt.

Start-The small circular button in the middle of your 
controller-Pauses the game. When the game is paused, this 
unpauses it.

A-Large green button-Attacks. Depending on what directions 
you combine this with, you can do many different attacks.

B-Small red button-Uses special attacks. Roy has 4 special 
attacks;B, Forward+B, Up+b, and Down+B.

X and Y-Gray buttons above and beside A-Jump. If you hold 
the button, you'll jump high. If you tap the button very 
lightly, you'll do a tiny jump. You can jump once on the 
ground, and once in mid-air.

C Stick-Yellow analog stick below B-Used for smash attacks. 
If you tilt it left or right, Roy will do his forward smash 
in that direction. If you tilt it up or down, he'll do 
either his up smash or his down smash.

L and R-Grey analog buttons on the shoulders of the 
controller-Holding down L or R will put up your shield. 
Since these are analog buttons, the strength of the shield 
can vary, depending on how far you hold the button in.

Z-Purple button in front of R-Grabs the opponent. Once 
you've grabbed them, you can throw them in any direction or 
knee him.

////////////////
3-Unlocking Roy
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
In order to unlock Roy, you must first unlock Marth. To 
unlock Marth, you must play with all of the original 14 
characters, in any mode. It's easiest to just play one VS 
match with each of them. After playing with the 14th 
character, Marth will challenge you. Defeat him, and you'll 
unlock him. If you lose, simply play another VS match, and 
he will challenge you again. Now, go to either Classic mode, 
or Adventure mode and beat it with Marth on any difficulty, 
with and stock, without using a continue. Now Roy will 
challenge you. Defeat him, and he will be unlocked. If you 
lose, you must beat Classic or Adventure again, without 
continuing.

///////////
4-Why Roy?
\\\\\\\\\\\
Why would one want to play as Roy? Let me list the 
advantages and disadvantages:

Advantages:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
-Excellent range
-Fairly quick on his feet
-Powerful
-Very good in one on one matches

Disadvantages:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
-No projectiles
-Weak throws
-No meteor attacks **
-Crappy aerial fighter

As we can see, his advantages far out-weigh his 
disadvantages. Fighting against a very good player with 
projectiles can be a bit of a problem, but he can overcome 
them with a little craftiness. As for the weak throws, the 
solution is just don't throw....it's not a vital part of 
winning a match by any means. Meteor attacks are always 
nice, but he really doesn't need them. He can Edge Guard 
much better than someone like Mario who -does- have a meteor 
attack, so don't stress over this. Yes, he is a very crappy 
aerial fighter...the only time you should even think of 
using a mid-air attack, is when you've been popped up there 
by your opponent. So in conclusion, stay on the ground, and 
this won't affect your fighting in the least.

**Something to note, I've received emails from at least 10 
people now, telling me that Roy does indeed have a meteor 
attack. In his Double Edge Dance, if you do up+B for the 
third hit, it will smack the opponent straight down, and 
thus is a meteor attack! I've tested this, and it is 
absolutely true. Keep in mind that the Roy Rule applies;it 
will only smash them down if you hit them with the middle of 
the blade. 

AlphaZ44550@aol.com has informed me of something that I had 
noticed before, but never really thought much of. Sometimes 
when you do Roy's up+A smash, the enemy will be sent 
straight down. This is when the enemy is hit with the middle 
of the blade. I've confirmed this quite a few times, and it 
does work. I don't know when this would be useful, but it is 
indeed another Meteor Smash. w00t, Roy is getting better all 
the time!


Ahah! So now we see that one of Roy's disadvantages can be 
stricken from the list! Honestly everyone, this guy can own 
everyone and their mother. If you're having trouble chosing 
which character you'd like to use, and "master" so to speak, 
I highly recommend Roy.

///////////////
5-The Roy Rule
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Alright....before we really get into anything, I must state 
the Roy rule...that is, something that you should always 
keep in mind. It affects pretty much all of Roy's attacks, 
as as such, it's something good to take in. Roy's blade has 
much more effect when you hit the opponent with the middle 
of it. This goes for absolutely any attack where you're 
attacking with your sword. You can tell by the difference in 
the sound, whether you're hitting with the middle or not. 
When you hit with the tip, you make a *smack* sound, like 
you're hitting a punching bag with a baseball bat. Learn to 
make the middle of the blade connect, instead of the tip, 
and you'll fare much better.

//////////

Double Edge Dance:This move is a combo move that has many 
possibilities. It is up to a 4 hit combo. The first attack 
is always the same, while the others can differ. The 2nd 
attack can either be forward or up, and the 3rd and 4th 
attacks can be forward, up, or down. I'm going to list these 
hits with a description and their maximum damage.

F=Forward
U=Up
D=Down

F1*Forward Slash*5
F2*Forward Stab*5
F3*Forward Swipe*6
F3*Forward Smash*7
U2*Upward Swipe*3
U3*Downward Swipe*8  **
U4*Jumping Downward Smash*7
D3*Downward Slice*7
D4*Low Multi-Stab*9

**This attack is a meteor attack. If you hit the opponent 
with it (with the middle of the blade) they will be sent 
straight down. I really like to use this, as it doesn't send 
them flying, and so they're in perfect position to be hit 
with any of the three great finishing attacks of Double Edge 
Dance

///////////////////
7-Attack Breakdown
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
In this section I'm going to completely break down all of 
Roy's Smash Attacks, and Special Attacks, so that you know 
what's going on with them...and stuff.

NOTE:All of the names of the smash attacks, are false names 
that I've given to them for sake of reference.

_____________
Smash Attacks
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Forward+A Smash:Cross Slash
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This is basically Roy's pinnacle attack, and a lot of 
strategy is based around this move. The range of the attack 
is very awesome, and so you can beat your foes down without 
them coming close to you. Quite useful indeed. It also deals 
a very respectable amount of damage. On your first use, it 
deals between 20 and 27 damage, depending on how much you 
charge it up. Even when the damage has gone to its very 
minimum, you still deal bewteen 13 and 18 damage, which is 
quite good. Once you've used it enough times for the damage 
to be minimized, they'll have enough damage to die rather 
quickly anyhow. Another great thing about this move is that 
it smashes your opponent quite far. This is an excellent 
move for edge guarding (though it is not quite as good of an 
edge guarding move as Flare Blade). ALSO, the move hits a 
large area, not just in front of you, but can hit enemies 
that are above you as well, providing they aren't behind 
you, obviously =P All in all, I rate this to be Roy's best 
move, and pretty much the beat all end all move of the 
entire game. Seriously.

Up+A Smash:Skyward Thrust
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This is a pretty good attack that can somewhat hide Roy's 
completel aerial suckage, as it has some pretty good upward 
range. This one is a beast for damage, if you charge it up. 
Otherwise it's still decent. On your first attack, you'll do 
19 to 39(!!) damage, depending on charge. This is a 5 hit 
attack btw, you need to hit with all 5 for the full damage. 
At minimum damage though, it only does 9-13 damage, so don't 
overuse it, or else it will become shite. Not really much 
else to say about this move. Oh yeah, it -is- a meteor 
attack, if you follow the Roy Rule and hit with the middle 
of the blade, but this is so hard to exploit that it's not 
even worth knowing. Moving on......=P

Down+A Smash:Clean Sweep
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Meh, this attack would be good, if it weren't so bloody 
slow. Honestly, any good player will have you halfway to 
hell by the time Roy starts to slash with his bloody sword. 
Don't waste your time on this move, seriously. Unless of 
course the situation really calls for it, and I'm not sure 
when it would.....meh. 

_______________
Special Attacks
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
B:Flare Blade
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This is quite the powerful attack, in its own right. It's 
the 3rd most powerful attack in the game when fully charged 
(the top 2 being conditional [roy's counter, and G&W's 
bucket]). The first time using it, the move does 6-50(!!) 
damage, depending on how long you charge. If you charge it 
up all the way, you'll get a big explosion, and damage 
yourself 10%. However, it's an almost definite KO. When the 
damage is minimized, the attack is completel karp though, 
doing from 4 to 29 damage. This attack is quite good in the 
sense that it launches them far, even if it only does 5 or 6 
damage. This is an extremely useful edge guarding move, and 
my most preferred one. A good situation for using this move 
is when you get a Bellossom, and the enemy is trapped by 
it's sleep powder. Charge it up all the way, they aren't 
going anywhere ;)

Forward+B:Double Edge Dance
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This move is detailed earlier....pretty much the same as 
before....*yawn*.....Well, you can use this move for help 
returning to the stage...but only use the first hit of it. 
You can use it a few times, but pause for a moment, so that 
you don't do the whole combo, and fall to your death like an 
idiot =P

Up+B:Blazer
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
An interesting move; this is Roy's main recovery move. Roy 
flies upward in a slash. This move is somewhat reminiscent 
of Shooooooryuken!, except that Roy is holding a sword =P. 
This is a multi hit attack. It doesn't do much damage, but 
it still packs quite the punch if you follow the Roy Rule, 
and hit the enemy with the middle of your blade. This is a 
great move for when you're in a one player mode, fighting a 
ton of weak enemies, as it will usually kill them in one 
hit. Also, if you hold forward right as you hit up+B, or 
well, a tiny bit after, you'll get more horizontal distance, 
if that's what you're after. A fairly good move, with nice 
recovery properties, all in all.

Down+B:Counter
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
When Roy uses this move, he gets into a Kung Fu stance, and 
flashes. During the time that he flashes, if anyone hits him 
with ANY attack, he'll counter it and do 1.5 times the 
damage. Very useful indeed! This is a good way of letting 
projectiles pass by you as well :) I like using this move on 
power characters, like Ganondorf and Captain Falcon, as it 
will put a big hurt on them. Generally countering a Warlock 
Punch is a one hit kill, unless you're in a large level. 
Whee....stuff.


All of the attack summaries below are those of my good buddy 
Buckwheatz Revenge. Kudos to Buckwheat ^_^
____________________________________________________________
__
Roy

Forward+B Double Edge Dance

Roy (shows pretty rainbow colors O_o;;; as he) executes a 4 
hit combo. The key to this is that you time your B button 
taps just right so he executes each of his 4 hits on the 
enemy(I usually wait until the full swing of the past blade 
sweep is completed). If you hit an enemy with the 4th swing, 
they will burn up. The swings can even be aimed. This gives 
it the following uses:

1.	can be started in the air and continued when Roy hits 
the ground, gaining him horizontal distance to get back to 
an edge, making it an EXCELLENT edgeguarding defense tool! 
^_^
2.	can be used as well to edgeguard because it has 
excellent range and the duration of the combo (should you 
choose to use all 4 swipes). 
3.	is an excellent comboer, the moves come out one after 
the other, getting your opponent caught in it. When used on 
an opponent at low damage, this is damage % racking. When 
used on an opponent at high damage, can KO an opponent. 
4.	because you can aim the swipes, this can be used in a 
variety of ways to KO. You can aim up to juggle an opponent, 
or down to spike them, or keep it simple and just go 
straight forward in a combo with it. Many options are 
available. It is VERY hard for an opponent to predict which 
way you will swipe because Roy also has good speed while 
using this. Before the opponent can react, they are caught 
in the combo! ^_^

************************************************

*activates work of art skillz*

Legend: #'s = column number and step of the swipe, R = Roy, 
X = direction of sword swipe; can hit either up, down, or 
forward.

Columns:
....1....2....3....4	- Number of B button tap.
-------------------------------------------
..........X....X....X	- Direction UP
R..X....X....X....X	- Direction FORWARD (or unaimed, default 
if you just tap B alone)
................X....X	- Direction DOWN

This shows the variety Roy has when using his B moves alone. 
If the fourth hit is directed down,, he goes into a short 
infinite-hit-like combo. This is not all though. After you 
use the first B, you can also use the A button, or any other 
A move such as smash, etc. Allowing a greater chance for 
combos!

*ends art skillz*

************************************************
More on Forward+B

The first hit is always the same. It can't be pointed up or 
down, because otherwise you'd use B Up or B Down. o_o After 
the first hit though, you can work wonders. Many thanks to 
Aerodude for supplying this table.

2nd hit(upward)- knocks opponent into the air, ready to be 
comboed.
2nd hit(forward)- a continuation of the straight forward 
combo. It stuns, and inflicts 5%.

3rd hit(upward)- a spike. A very useful tool when 
edgeguarding.
3rd hit(forward)- a forceful move that can clear.
3rd hit(downward)- sets on fire, and builds up damage. It 
can get up to 15% damage at one time. Is a sweeping move, so 
it can hit the smallest characters, even Pichu.

4th hit(upward)- a strengthened and widely ranged move, it 
send the opponent less vertically than horizontally, so it's 
a good KO move and excellent finisher to the combo.
4th hit(forward)- a good KO move. It's similar to his 
Forward Smash.
4th hit(downward)- an infinite combo. It hits 5 times 
altogether, but Roy, unlike Marth, throws in some fire, to 
inflict an extra 4% with each hit. So, it can get up to 25%, 
even without any of the other hits. !O_O!

That's all I have to say there. It can also be used to get 
back to the edge. Keep using the first hit and hold down the 
direction of the ledge you are returning to. This makes it a 
good edgeguarding defense move!  ^_^

************************************************

Roy

Up-B Blazer

Roy does a flaming sword uppercut! This move is very useful 
in combos. It hits your enemy with a continuous flame 
attack. It is also one of Roy's comeback move (the Forward+A 
helps too!). The closer you are to your target, the more 
damage dealt. This move can also be aimed! Hit B and 
diagonally up and forward, and he trades some vertical 
height for some horizontal distance! It is possible to use 
this move for juggling too. One special function of this 
move is its ability to KO. When you Up+B near an opponent, 
it is possible just after it is executed to aim Roy in the 
opposite direction. This will not only steer Roy away from a 
cliff if he happens to be near an edge with the opponent, 
but it knocks the opponent sky high! Some light opponents 
can be KOed at low percents. It is possible to kill an 
opponent at 0% with this technique. Thanks to Acidfreeze for 
a lot of these ideas.

X = Opponent(heights opponents will travel vary according to 
method of Up+B aiming).
R1 = Roy hitting opponent with a normal Up+B, Roy will head 
just a bit forward in the air.
R2 = Roy hits the opponent aiming the Up+B in the direction 
away from his opponent just after it's executed, this will 
cause Roy also to jump backwards away from his opponent, and 
possibly, away from an edge too.

The height in which the opponent will be send is greatly 
increased while doing this trick, and this KOs most lighter 
enemies at damages as low as 0‰!!!!!!!!!!! @m@zing1111!

Legend: R = Roy, ^ = direction in which Roy travels when he 
uses his Up+B. Diagram 1 is when Roy does his normal Up+B, 
non directed. Diagaram 2 is what happens to the uppercut 
when you press diagonal up while using the Up+B to direct 
it.

D1 is normal. Good vertical distance will be covered. D2 is 
a bit different. You will get more horizontal distance than 
normal... suggested that this is done when you are returning 
to a ledge, that little bit can help!

*end art skillz*

************************************************

Roy

B Flare Blade

Roy does an overhead sword swing from behind him chopping 
towards the front. This B move when tapped or lightly 
pressed, can unleash a quick sword slash that sets your 
opponent aflame. It is not as forceful as the Forward+A 
Smash, but Roy's B move can be charged as well by holding 
the B button. This move can be charged pretty much anywhere, 
even when Roy is falling he can charge this! You can release 
the charged attack anytime as well, making it hard for an 
opponent to predict what you are doing next. The opponent 
gets burned up as well after they are hit by any degree of 
charging from the Flare Blade. Anyway, charge this move to 
maximum and Roy will create a mini explosion, causing 10% 
damage to himself, and sending an opponent (that is within 
range) flying for about 50% damage. Most likely, if an 
opponent is hit by this move fully charged, they will be 
KO'd. You can start the charging anywhere you want, and even 
is flexible because you can start the charge in the air and 
keep the same charge when you hit the ground. When charged, 
this B move of Roy's is deadly powerful, and is 
exceptionally useful when edgeguarding. If used edgeguarding 
and this move is fully charged up, I can guarantee a KO, 
just as long as you hit with it! (which is not hard with the 
range of Roy being quite long o_O)

************************************************

Roy

Down+B Counter

Roy stands still and absorbs the attack of his opponent with 
his sword. The opponent is temporarily stunned along with 
Roy as he blocks and absorbs the attack, and dishes back an 
attack to the opponent for damage! This move is very useful 
in that you can counter many close range moves with this, 
and Roy can counter moves while in the air as well! When you 
time this move just right, it will be hard for an opponent 
to touch you with one of their moves, because Roy will not 
be harmed, and retort an attack right back at an opponent, 
free of charge! A great tool when used as edgeguarding 
defense. Sorta like Falcon's Up+B, because time will 
temporarily "halt" for the 2 characters involved in this 
move. ^_^


************************************************
Roy

Aerial Back+A

Roy's Air Back+A puts him in the direction his back is 
turned to, allowing him to get right into attacks, combos, 
or whatever you want to do. Recovery speed is a key point 
here, and because Roy turns in the direction of his 
opponent, he cuts the time normal characters have to do 
which is landing, then turning in the direction of his 
opponent.

************************************************

Roy

Running

Basically Roy bends his knees and gets down low to the 
ground as he sprints. Because he gets so low to the ground, 
some attacks (mainly projectiles) will miss him. When he 
sprints close to an opponent he can immediately slash his 
opponent with his sword, by pressing A while running 
(lengthy description for a Running+A O_o;-). Getting low to 
the ground will avoid many attacks and allow Roy the 
opportunity to start out effective combos by using his 
Running+A attack! 

************************************************
Roy

Power

Many of Roy's moves have great power. His B Flare Blade can 
be charged and released wherever he see fitted. This allows 
a variety in it's power as well. Whether fully charged or 
not, this move has power. Roy's Forward+B has power as well. 
Some of the final hits of his combo have the power to KO an 
opponent, and this isn't hard to do seeing that Roy moves in 
a forward motion towards his opponent while performing this 
move. All of Roy's smash moves are equally good in power, if 
not better. The fact that he uses a sword grants him extra 
range over other many other characters. Having that little 
bit of range makes his opponents all that much easier to KO, 
and makes him deadly on the battlefield when his opponent is 
at high damage.

************************************************

Roy

Combos

Roy has many moves which can easily be comboed with. 
Probably the most powerful comboing tool Roy has is his 
Forward+B Double Edge Dance. This move allows Roy to flow in 
and out of combos, as he can easily stop his Forward+B at 
any time and for example throw in either a B (Flare Blade) 
or a quick Forward+A Smash by using the C-stick forward. 
Here is a list of some of the combos I have discovered while 
using Roy.

Roy Combos

~Double Edge Dance
Roy's standard Forward+B can be executed in a variety of 
combinations up to 27 possible moves! The following diagram 
will help you understand how many combos Roy has at his 
disposal with this move.

Note: regarding the 2nd slash of the combo, you cannot aim a 
down slash, there is only an option to aim forward or up on 
the 2nd slash. A forward aimed slash in my diagram is 
displayed as simply "B", because if you don't aim the move 
and just tap B, by default it will execute the 4 Forward+B 
combinations.


*end art skillz*

All this mess adds up to 27 possible combinations for this 
move. Needless to say this attack is unpredictable. Using a 
variety of directions with this move makes it hard for an 
opponent to get out of this combo. You can KO most of the 
time with the last moves (4th step) of the combo in that 
they pack the most force, and the force makes a great cap 
after racking up damage with the earlier hits of the combo.

Stage Strategies

Icicle Moutain
Use the Up+B Blazer move to aid in your upward progress. 
When the screen scrolling slows down, use Roy's combos such 
as his Forward+B Double Edge Dance and Smash attacks to hit 
your opponent out of screen for kills. Send them up if you 
want, but a more effective option would be to send them 
horizontally.

Princesss Peach's Castle
At the center pillar, use the Up+B Blazer to catch an 
opponent above you off guard. Same applies if you happen to 
be above an opponent on one of the many appearing platforms. 
On the flat spaces, use smash attacks and Roy's Forward+B 
Double Edge Dance. Try to lure your opponent over to the 
Bullet Bill when it is about to explode, and use Roy's quick 
jumping and the Up+B to escape the explosion. Use 
edgeguarding tactics on the ramps of the roof on either side 
of the castle. 

Rainbow Cruise
Use the Forward+B to get opponents caught in a combo and 
even get a kill by using edgeguarding techniques off the 
platforms, carpets, the boat, and other obstacles. Try using 
it in the air going to a platform also, you can go right 
into the other 3 moves. This is a big help for edgeguarding 
defense. Use Up+B when fit also. Opponents will be above you 
quite often.

Kongo Jungle
Use the Up+B and Air dodging to it's full advantages. Also 
execute the B+Forwards quite often. Use the little island as 
a steak-out post and prepare Roy for a Up+B to an opponent 
jumping over to it or smash them with the c-stick quick 
smash. Continue to Up+B your opponent to higher platforms, 
as this is a good juggling tactic because the Blazer move is 
so fast.

Jungle Japes
Use the Down+A c-stick quick smash here to edgeguard 
opponents who are trying to get back to the main or side 
platforms. Same applies with the Forward Smash. Forward+B is 
a necessity here. Use it frequently as you chase your 
opponent across the platforms. Of course, use it in the air 
to start the combo off, as it will catch your opponent off 
guard. Don't forget to throw in a Down+B in the air too, 
it'll stun your opponent and give them a retort for damage%!

(Termina) Great Bay
Use the Running+A move on the main flat platform. It's 
really quick and will set up for 
combos. If you are below the main platform on either side, 
and an opponent is above 
you, use a Up+B on them to knock them away, cause damage, 
and gain access to the 
main platform. B+Forward is a good idea to use when 
edgeguarding and use it often on 
the main platform. Smash your opponents against the 
underneath of the main platform 
should they decide to join you on either the floating 
platform or the one just before the 
turtle. They will deflect off the bottom of the main 
platform into the deep waters below. 
The balloon serves as an escape from your opponent as you 
can fall back down on them 
from it and use a Down+B to block the attack as well as 
retort it back on them.

Hyrule Temple
Use Up+B on opponents above on platforms. Use the wide space 
to charge a B Flare 
Blade move and lay a powerful blade blow on your opponent. 
Charge the B move as well 
while edgeguarding on any of the ledges. The Forward+B is 
definitely a useful tool to 
have here. It should be used in open areas, in the air, 
getting back to a ledge, and more. 
Running+A is also a useful move to use in the flat areas. 
You can KO easiest of the time 
by sending the opponents up and out of the stage by using an 
Up+A Smash. It'll also 
set them on fire. 

Yoshi's Story
Use the little floating cloud to the left and right of the 
main platform to surprise your
Opponents. If they are edgeguarding from the main platform, 
try Up+Bing them when the 
cloud moves down to a lower elevation. Use Forward+B and 
your Smash moves a lot for 
KO's. Up+B opponents above you on the 3 platforms. Also the 
Up+A Smash can go 
through the lower of the 2 platforms, so use that to Roy's 
advantage.

Yoshi's Island
Pipes and slope are good places to "aim high" when using 
Roy's Forward+B on it. Use 
smashes to both knock your opponents up or horizontally out 
of the level. B+Up is useful 
when an opponent is above you on either the pipe or the 
slope. Also you can B+Up 
through the spinning Yellow blocks and hit your opponent 
should they happen to be up 
there.

Fountain of Dreams
Make excellent use of Roy's Forward+B on the flat platforms 
as well on the main 
platform. The sinking platforms you can use as a diversion 
and you can drop below the 
platform and Up+B your opponent. It's a rather small level, 
so edgeguarding will be very 
necessary. Charge Roy's B Flare Blade when he's 
edgeguarding, as you'll be able to 
charge while your opponent is out over the edge, trying to 
get back.

Green Greens
Opponents on the 2 platforms in the center of the stage are 
prime targets for an Up+B. 
With a Forward+A Smash, you can clear all the blocks away 
with Roy's range. You can 
spike an enemy into the pit once all the blocks are cleared 
with Roy's Air Down+A. 
Edgeguarding is a key factor here too as Roy. Forward+A 
Smash and charge the B Flare 
Blade when edgeguarding. 

Corneria
Spike an enemy off the head end of the ship with Roy's Air 
Down+A and put them in 
range for the Great Fox Cannon! It can do about 280% damage 
and r0x0rz your opponent 
with massive force! You can also Up+A Smash or simple Up+A 
your opponent into the 
laser paths of both the horizontally traveling ships as well 
as the ships who shoot at the 
mid section  of the level from the background. Standard 
edgeguarding, use Forward+B, 
B, and Forward+A Smash. They have great range. When going up 
on the fin of the great 
fox, aim the Forward+B upwards to hit the opponents above 
you on the slope. Also use 
the arwings as a temporary escape platform to get out of an 
opponents juggle. (Juggling 
defense factor.)

Venom
Use the multiple platforms as an opponent is perched above 
you for an Up+B. on the
 wing tips(ends), use Forward+B to edgeguard. Forward+A 
Smashes and B's work well 
too. Aim the Forward+B to adjust and hit opponents who 
happen to be on the 
anatomically curved slopes of the wings and ship. 

Flat Zone
The little disappearing / re-appearing platforms set up 
opponents for Up+B's by Roy 
from below. The flat areas prove to be a great place to 
execute Roy's Forward+B 
combos, and use the range and speed of the Running+A. 
Edgeguarding is a bit different 
here, it's a bit easier in that there will be an instant 
death once anyone reaches a certain 
point off screen. This makes it easy for Roy, simply get an 
opponent as far to the borders 
of the board as you can, and use one of his vastly ranged 
and powerful moves to knock 
them out of bounds and off stage. Power moves of Roy's 
include the B(charge when 
possible), Forward+A Smash, Up+A Smash, Down+A Smash, and 
the Up+B Blazer. 
Blazer can KO if you aim away from an opponent as it will 
knock an enemy more than 
twice as high as they would originally go! Using that tactic 
you can KO an opponent at 
anything as low as 0%. ^_^

R.O.Y vs Super Samus Squad
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
NGCGameMaster:
Forward-B Attack 

Samus- Her forward-b move is just a missle. I doesnt have any type of 
combo with it. It leaves Samus open for attack from behind so she can 
get hit. It sometimes doesnt even hit the opponent that shes aiming at 
just making it a waste of time. The missle can be deflected easily 
because it is so slow, just a tap on the A button makes it explode 
causing no damage to the opposing player. Her missle also has a delay 
time before it shoots.

Roy- For Roy's forward-b move it has all types of combos. It can vary 
from 3-15 damage. In the middle of the attacks he can perform different 
varities of attacks, such as: an upward attack, forward, or downward. Of 
what i know there is 27 different combinations of Roy's foward-b attack, 
all varying in distance and power. Depending on what type of combo you 
choose it can vary in distance you hit your opponent. During the process 
of the combos it can deflect mid-air objects without Roy taking damage. 
It also has the ability to rack up damage easily.

I am in favor of Roy here.

Buckwheatz Return:

General Opening

Roy is a character whose sword gives largely ranged attacks and a big 
advantage. Samus has shorter ranged non-projectile attacks, and Roy has 
a definite edge over her when in the areas of range, comboing, and 
speed. Let me take Roy and Samus' B moves. Roy's Forward+B Double Edge 
Dance attack can be executed on the spot, and comboed as he can hit the 
opponent up to four times let alone just that move. It has good range, 
speed, is a good edgeguarding move and many other aspects. Samus's 
Forward+B Missile is slow to come out. You can't really combo with it 
like Roy's Forward+B because it is a projectile. It can be rolled, 
dodged, or shielded to avoid at your own convenience because, it is 
traveling towards Roy as an object outside Samus' body, so essentially, 
it is weaker and less useful than some of Samus' other non-projectile 
attacks she'd have to move in close to Roy to do damage. Just keep in 
mind that Roy's sword can cover more area than a standard non-projectile 
attack because of its range, and this prevents Samus come very close 
with the majority of her non-projectile moves. Roy's speed, range, 
combos, short recovery time, speedy jumping, as well as many other 
aspects I will show give him a definite advantage over Samus.

General "B" move arguement

Roy's Flare Blade has more power than Samus' charge shot. Flare Blade 
can reach up to 50% fully charged, while Samus' projectile only gets up 
to 28% fully charged. Samus' damages on her Charge Shots will decrease 
dramatically downwards from 28% upon further uses (overusing it). Given 
this information, Roy's Flare Blade is more likely to KO an opponent 
than Samus' Charge Shot. 

Flare Blade isn't badly ranged either for a stationary non-projectile 
attack. Samus' Charge Shot is a projectile. Roy has the option to evade 
the projectile as well. He can mid-air dodge, roll, or shield to avoid 
the giant ball of energy. Probably a more suitable option for Roy though 
would be to Down+B Counter the flying projectile. Of course, you should 
be close up to Samus for the sake of the Down+B Counter swipe hitting 
her, but this move will deflect charge shot away, as well as cause Roy 
to counter swipe at Samus for 1.5x more damage than the charged shot 
would have caused if it hit Roy.

ONE MORE THING!!! General "B" move arguement

Samus can't charge the Charge Shot while she's in midair. She can only 
release a shot (which will be a weak 3% damage hit unless you've charged 
prior to the jump). Roy can charge Flare Blade in the air. He can also 
release it when he wants. He can continue his charge on Flare Blade even 
after he hits the ground.

Raydude:

running

roy can definetly run faster then samus and has a much less chance of 
getting hit while running. Roy bends down really low when he's running 
so any high attacks would miss him but samus stands up strait making it 
real easy to hit her when she's running.

Buckwheatz Return:

Counter regarding Smash attacks... (?_?)

"Overall: samus' smashes are fast and easy to pull off, they make good 
combo moves and send the opponent very far even at the lowest power." 

Some evidence? Maybe a specific move? You aren't proving or debating 
anything by just saying "they're powerful". I can do that too. Specify a 
move please. I can simply say all of Roy's Smashes have great speed, 
have great power, are great edgeguarders, etc... that makes no sense, 
see where I'm coming from?

"roys smashes are slow and take time to pull off. yes, they have range, 
but samus can dodge the smash and counter with one of her own."

Specific info? They are not slow. You are making incorrect general 
statements about Roy's Smashes. The Down+A Smash comes out instantly, 
and hits on both sides of Roy. The Up+A Smash Samus goes in an arc over 
Samus' head, so they'll hit opponents above them at the same time 
anyway. Roy's reaches greater heights as it has more range. The 
Forward+A Smash has a second of delay time, but the range the move 
achieves will make that delay insignificant. What smash would you dodge? 
I can't use all the smashes at once! I'll be more specific in a bit. ^_^ 

Counter regarding Forward+A Smash

"> smash: samus' forward smash is undoubtedly one of the fastest, if not 
the fastest, forward smashes in the game. it can be executed quickly, 
can be aimed, and has great throwing distance
roys forward smash, while having range, is slow and has an even slower 
cooldown. samus can dodge or roll around it with ease and use her own 
smash as a counter"

Samus' Forward+A Smash gets 19%, which is some 8% less than Roy's 
Forward+A Smash. Samus' is low ranged, and much less than Roy's so his 
can reach longer distances than Samus'. This makes Roy's Forward+A Smash 
a better edgeguarder right off the bat. Roy's Smash having great power 
is also a plus of this move, as it DOES have more power and can KO 
opponents easier than Samus' can.

To avoid Samus' forward+A smash, Roy has many options. Probably the best 
would be Roy's Down+B Counter. It will put the damage right back at 
samus for 1.5x the damage it would cause Roy! [B][C][D][E].

<§olution rovider> uses Systems for Success.

§ystem ƒor §uccess
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a key for my evasive System for Success. To make things easy, to 
avoid a situation, Roy can use a variety of evasive moves. Wherever you 
see the letters in brackets in my counter posts, look back to my key, 
pretty much I was looking to save some typing and save the refs some 
reading, so I used a system! To make it simple, the ref can just copy my 
system to a sheet of paper, or something they can write on at their own 
disposal, otherwise, you'll have to keep coming back to this post! >_<.
[A] = Use a midair dodge
[B] = Use a roll
[C] = Use the shield
[D] = Use Roy's Down+B (Counter)
[E] = Use the ground dodge

Rolling

Speed is the same on both of their rolls. Samus' roll goes farther than 
Roy's, but it is slower to finish than Roy's roll. Because of this, Roy 
can put up his shield sooner than Samus after completing the roll. When 
Roy is shielding Samus is still in the ball shape completing her roll. 
This leaves her vulnerable that extra few seconds that Roy is safe. ^_^

Funkytoad:

lets roll baby!

samus:

sure samus's roll may be slower than roy, but its very compact and its 
GOOD that it goes slow. it can go under a dancing blade and have time to 
shield. it also goes very far.
No, it really isn't a good thing that it's so slow. If roy's in the 
middle of a double edge dance, he'd be either at the first or second hit 
when you roll (no roy player would start up a DED aiming to hit you with 
only the third or fourth hit). At this point Roy stops the combo, and 
hits the C stick for a quick forward smash. At this point, he runs after 
your flying corpse, hits you with a running A attack to pop you up, then 
hits with a mid-air Flare Blade. You see what kind of trouble samus' 
sloooow roll starts up? By the time she's out, roy can be LONG done any 
of his attacks, and smashing you very far.

roy: 

roy's may be faster, but it dosent go that far back. therefor roy 
couldnt continueously evade a barradge of smash missles and charge 
shots. while samus's can get under and away enought to not get hit by 
roys attacks
Duh, you don't want it to go extremely far, that's a bad thing. The 
further your dumb roll goes, the more time the opponent has for setting 
up an attack. Roy's roll is quick, so when samus is attacking, or trying 
to grab, or whatever, roy rolls behind, and hits with either a forward+A 
smash, or starts up a double edge dance.

Up+B Moves:

Roy:Blazer. This move is so useful, it's not even funny. It's multi 
hit(though not as multi hit as screw attack), and it pops the enemy up 
like nothing. Not only does it get very respectable vertical distance, 
if you hold forward with up, he'll get some nice horizontal distance as 
well, ideal for returning to the level. This move is a great finish to a 
combo, or even a middle move. Roy falls much faster than samus, so if he 
hits her with a Blazer up high, he can fast fall, and have a smash set 
up for when she lands. It also does 13% if you connect with every hit, 
more than samus.

Samus:Screw Attack. This move is multi hit as well, and hits more times 
than Roy's Blazer. However, each hit does less damage, and this move has 
a hard time doing it's max 12%. While roy's blazer traps the enemy quite 
well, samus' is a hit or miss. If the enemy does get trapped, they're 
trapped for good, but if you hit them the wrong way, you're doing very 
little damage. This move also has pithy horizontal recovery. Plus, after 
samus uses this, she's got to fall back to the ground before doing 
anything, and since she falls so slowly, roy can be on the ground owning 
her when she gets there.


Edge Guarding

Roy:Roy is an -extremely- great edge guarder. He has many moves with 
which to guard. First we have Flare Blade, my personal edge guarding 
choice. This thing takes a long time to charge up, yes, but if samus is 
far away, and coming back to the level, you can nail her just as she 
gets back with a 31% or 36% Flare Blade, that will hammer her out of the 
arena. If she decides to drop down an grapple to the ledge, roy simply 
ends the move, moves back a bit, and starts to charge a forward+A smash, 
our second edge guarding move. This has excellent range, and can hit a 
returning foe that is still quite a ways from the ledge. Not only this, 
but it executes quickly, and you can quickly begin charging another one, 
or a flare blade. Thirdly we have double edge dance. Whomever says Roy 
doesn't have a smash attack is sadly mistaken. The third hit is a smash 
attack if you do up+B. This hit smashes them straight down, and is 
perfect for edge guarding. This is a much better meteor attack than most 
others, because it doesn't involve jumping off, and risking your life.

Samus: What can samus do to edge guard? Fire missles and plasma shots. 
That's really about it. Since the first hit of double edge dance is a 
large part of Roy's recovery anyhow, he can just rid himself of these 
projectiles, -while- returning. Samus doesn't have any edge guarding 
capability whatsoever with her forward smash, roy will be well into his 
blazer before he comes into range of that less than stellar move.

Power

Roy:Roy is a powerhouse, simply put. You can be fighting against 
someone, and get hit seven or eight times in a row, and then make it up 
with two smash attacks. Roy's forward attack can do up to 27%, and with 
no charge, can do 20%, more than samus' forward smash when fully 
charged. Flare blade is THE most powerful move in the game, short of a 
game&watch bucket, or Roy countering a very powerful move (ooh, roy 
possesses two of the 3 most powerful attacks ;).) Roy's upward smash 
also deals more than 20 damage, and so does his downward smash. Also, in 
terms of launching power, Blazer can launch them VERY far into the sky, 
at 0% simply by hitting them with the lower-middle of the blade.

Samus:Meh, she has a few powerful attacks, such as her smash missiles, 
and her up+A smash, but her up+A smash has a hard time connecting with 
every hit anyhow. For the most part, samus doesn't often break 20% with 
attacks. She simply cannot beat roy in this section, no questions asked.

The further your dumb roll goes, the more time the opponent has for 
setting up an attack.

yea my dumb roll does go far, no the opponet wont have time to set up an 
attack unless its a running A due to how far away ill be.

Perhaps you should go turn on your gamecube, and check the range on 
roy's forward smash. But then, a running A works too. Roy can set up a 
combo/juggle right there.....is that a selling point for samus' roll? 
No.

Sexiness

Roy:Roy is pretty damn sexy if you ask me (no I'm not like that, but 
trying to get in touch with my feminine side ;) ). Not only does he have 
dashing good looks, but he's a brave hero. He goes out and fights 
baddies for the good of the people. He's courageous, selfless, and 
noble. Not to mention that he's of regal blood. One of his winning pose 
voices translates to "For those I must protect, I cannot lose!". This 
shows that he cares for his loved ones very much. I don't know about you 
guys, but a lot of my female friends think that bravery, and courage, 
and nobility, etc, are pretty sexy stuff.

Samus:As I caressed the cold metal suit, and inserted my finger into her 
plasma gun, I knew that this night was going to be magical....
Seen many Harlequin's with this scene? No, because it just doesn't work. 
Samus is very much a tomboy. There is nothing at all sexy about a metal 
suit of armor, and weapons galore. Underneath that, she must be REALLY 
REALLY sweaty imo....ick. If samus had a costume without the suit, she'd 
probably be pretty damn sexy, but as it stands, she doesn't, so she's 
simply about as sexy as a robot.

forward+b moves

Oh, and I have something to say about samus' "great" smash missiles. Any 
good player won't even try to dodge them, but rather Power Shield them 
back, taking out two missiles at a time. If you mess up the power 
shield, you still get a regular shield. Double edge dance -cannot- be 
power shielded, and if you try to regular shield it, you're gonna have a 
broken shield pretty damn fast.

juggling defense...

Samus:

welp, its hard for most characters to defend a juggle, but then there's 
samus. she has the bombs thatll stop and stun as long as roy isnt 
releasing an attack (thats why you use the bombs high up) even if he is 
it forces him to take another attack to charge which is a waste of time. 
she can also (if she times it right) use a down A spike.

Roy:

Roy lacks one thing in this game: projectiles. roy has basicly no 
defense while juggling and he can ethier jump away or try a down a 
areail. not too much for roy to do here...

On the contrary good buddy, Roy has a little thing called Counter He 
simply counters at the last second, and the juggler all of a sudden 
becomes the juglee! Great how that works, eh? Samus however has crappy 
little bombs. If you're high in the air, they'll explode before they hit 
the juggler. If you're low enough taht the bomb would actually hit them, 
chances are they're attacking you at that point anyhow ;p

Buckwheatz Return:

Roy

Power

Many of Roy's moves have great power. His B Flare Blade can be charged 
and released wherever he see fitted. This allows a variety in it's power 
as well. Whether fully charged or not, this move has power. Roy's 
Forward+B has power as well. Some of the final hits of his combo have 
the power to KO an opponent, and this isn't hard to do seeing that Roy 
moves in a forward motion towards his opponent while performing this 
move. All of Roy's smash moves are equally good in power, if not better. 
The fact that he uses a sword grants him extra range over other many 
other characters. Having that little bit of range makes his opponents 
all that much easier to KO, and makes him deadly on the battlefield when 
his opponent is at high damage.

Running

Roy

Basically Roy bends his knees and gets down low to the ground as he 
sprints. Because he gets so low to the ground, some attacks (mainly 
projectiles) will miss him. When he sprints close to an opponent he can 
immediately slash his opponent with his sword, by pressing A while 
running (lengthy description for a Running+A O_o;). Getting low to the 
ground will avoid many attacks and allow Roy the opportunity to start 
out effective combos by using his Running+A attack! 

Samus
Samus wears all of her gear. That must be what slows her down, because 
she runs straight standing up! When she is running, she is actually 
increasing the area you can hit her, as opposed to Roy, because Roy 
crouches down and sprints close to the ground, hence reducing the area 
you can hit him. Roy is a faster runner than Samus as well. Running will 
affect the transition into the Running+A move, so if you have a fast 
sprinter like Roy, you will make out well with the Running+A.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Running+A

The Running+A move is directly linked to how fast a character can run. 
Because Roy is such a good sprinter, I'd say he wins over Samus in this 
category, because she is slower, but I have a bit more information 
before I get off this subject. Samus' Running+A gets 13%, acts as a 
battering ram, and will push the opponent forward. Samus also has 
recovery time after the shoulder charge she does. Now lets take a look 
at the aspects of Roy's Running+A. Roy's Running+A will pop the opponent 
up into the air for 12% damage. Roy has no recovery time after the move, 
so he can move directly after he slashes the opponent with his sword. 
With this, Roy can set up for great combos after the Running+A. Also, 
the move pops the opponent up into a prime place to juggle them as well. 
Samus' is not made for juggling, or comboing, as it will not only knock 
the opponent out of range, but Samus needs to recover after the 
Running+A attack.

Funkytoad:

forward+b moves

Oh, and I have something to say about samus' "great" smash missiles. Any 
good player won't even try to dodge them, but rather Power Shield them 
back, taking out two missiles at a time. If you mess up the power 
shield, you still get a regular shield. Double edge dance -cannot- be 
power shielded, and if you try to regular shield it, you're gonna have a 
broken shield pretty damn fast.

Any good player isn't naive enough to think they can consistantly pull 
of power shield.And most likely you will just get hit with them.Double 
edge dance is useless as a comboer because the first hit often knocks 
opponents out of range of the second hit, getting all 4 hits is very 
rare.Also samus can just roll behind him.

Here's an idea, let's start using facts. The first hit of double edge 
dance pulls the opponent toward you. Getting four hits in is simple, use 
forward, forward, up, down. You get in 30+ damage if you do it right, 
and it's not very hard to pull off. Also, once it's started, it's not 
easy to escape from.

And btw, I can Power Shield about 50% of the time ;p Most good players 
can power shield at least semi consistantly.

Secondly, the battle armor is just a external piece of equipment, it in 
no way makes her any less attractive underneath it.If you've ever beaten 
super metroid in under 3 hours you'd know that she is very sexy because 
other than the chozo suit all she wears is a bikini.

Last time I checked, we were debating about a game called Super Smash 
Brothers Melee, not Super Metroid...am I at the wrong board?

Dodging

Roy:Roy is quite the good player for dodging. His rolling dodge is 
quick, and effective, and can allow him to dodge an attack, and quickly 
retaliate with a smash attack, or a double edge dance. His down+A dodge 
is just like anyone elses, not much to say about this... His mid-air 
dodge is also just the same as everyone else's....however he can fall 
quite fast, compared to samus, so after a mid-air dodge, you can fall 
fast, when the opponent would jump, looking to combo you. If you make it 
down before them, you can start attacking. His up+B move is quite the 
effective move for dodging, especially given its optional horizontal 
capabilites. In a complicated level, such as Infinite Glacier, you can 
dodge things very well with this, then recover and attack.

Samus:Samus has basically the same dodging properties as Roy, save for 
two things. One, Her rolling dodge is SLOW and LONG as hell, and you 
aren't even invulnerable during it. This gives opponents an opportunity 
to smash you. Also, her up+B move cannot go horizontally, and thus 
limits dodging capabilities.

Comboing

Roy:Roy is a very effective comboer. A lot of this comboing talent comes 
from his forward+B move, Double Edge Dance. This is -the- ultimate 
comboing move. It starts off with two hits, that pull the enemy towards 
you, then you can smack them straight into the floor, then finish with a 
down+B, for some quick damaging stabs. There are also tons of other 
possibilities for this move, and lots of them are very effective. Roy is 
not limited to this move for combos however. My favourite combo is a 
forward+A smash, then a running+A hit, a mid-air flare blade, then 
hopefully they're off the edge, and you can just edge guard with either 
Flare Blade or your forward+A smash.

Samus:Samus doesn't really have much for the way of combos....her up+B 
move would be good, if it didn't force her to fall helplessly, and 
slowly to the ground after you use it. Her up+A smash would also be 
good, if it could actually connect with every hit on a semi-consistant 
basis.

Buckwheatz Return:

Counter regarding Down+A Smash

"\/smash: samus' \/smash has an excellent radius, and is executed very 
quickly. it can be used as a crowd clearer as it sends opponents 
flying."

It isn't as powerful as Roy's. Roy's power propels the opponent higher 
up into the air, and Roy can recover from his backslash and continue 
with a juggle or combo.

"the back is slightly less powerful but is equally useful in combos"

Samus' Down+A Smash I find hard to juggle with. This is because there is 
delay time after she hits the opponent. Roy's Down+A Smash has more 
power than Samus', so he can make up for the back end slash by knocking 
his opponent into the air for a longer amount of time than Samus can. 
Roy's Down+A Smash can also useful for combos, but does more damage at 
28%. This move of Samus' has less range than Roy's. This means that it 
is a less useful edgeguarder.

"roys \/smash also has a good radius, but isnt executed nearly as fast."

You are mistaken. It comes out instantly, but it hits once on each side.

"there is a pause between the forward and backward hit, leaving him more 
open to attacks from behind."

Yes, but this move has power, more than Samus' too. It will knock the 
opponent high enough in the air for Roy to recover from the backslash 
and start up a nifty juggle or combo. This means he won't be attacked 
from behind. Even should the opponent happen to be in back of Roy, the 
backslash would take care of them in a jiffy.

"while being a good crowd clearer, samus can get about 1.5 \/smashes in 
for every one of his (assuming they are not interrupted)"

Even so, it does have some delay time afterwards that may give her 
trouble because her Down Smash isn't as powerful as Roy's and won't send 
them as high in the air. Roy's range is greater than Samus' too on the 
Down+A Smash, so there is a certain distance that you won't be able to 
hit Roy, but Roy will be able to hit Samus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Down+A Smash

Roy
Does excellent damage for a Down+A Smash at 28%. Has great power. It 
will pop an opponent into the air allowing a juggle or combo. It has 
great range, and it makes a great edgeguarding tool for opponents who 
hang just below the edge. 

Here is an image portraying the range of Roy's Down+A Smash:

R = Roy
X = Areas the Down+A Smash will hit an opponent.

Samus
This move is harder to combo or juggle with than Roy's. It's not as 
powerful, nor does it do more damage than Roy's Down+A Smash. It gets 
21%. It has less range than Roy's, so I wouldn't recommend it as a more 
useful edgeguarder. It can also be avoided in a variety of ways. Most of 
the reason it is easy to dodge is because it lacks range. [B][C][D][E].

I also have an image for this move as well:

As a comparison of both images, I hope you now see that Roy's Down+A 
Smash gets better range and therefore is better edgeguarder than Samus' 
Down+A Smash.

Counter regarding Up+A Smash

"^smash: samus' ^smash has a wide radius of fire and hits several times. 
it has not ko power,"

You must mean wide arc. I have no problems with the arc, but it's low 
range is where Roy gets you. It lacks the high reach that Roy can get 
with his sword, as Samus' only travels in a small semi circle above her 
head and is vulnerable to attack from below. If you don't hit with all 
the explosion attacks, it won't be as powerful nor will it be as 
damaging as you say. 

"but its good for using on enemies above you on platforms"

Nope. It is short ranged, and won't hit opponents as high as you think. 
As I said before, it doesn't get range. It makes more of an arc than it 
gets height on the explosion attacks.

"roys ^smash has a very narrow attack radius." 

Even if it doesn't have an arc (which the normal Up+A covers anyways), 
it reaches higher than Samus'. I will give a visual now.

==========================

R = Roy
S = Samus
X = Areas the Up+A Smash will hit an opponent.

Even if the arc is a bit less, that extra range gives Roy the advantage 
to hit the opponent multiple times, and makes Roy's Up+A Smash better 
for juggling.

"it is also slow and easily dodged. "

Ain't as slow as you think. In the time Samus completes her scorching 
circle, Roy already has his sword out to hit the opponent. To hit an 
opponent above and in the rear of Samus takes more time than it takes 
for Roy to juggle an opponent with his. Roy's is easy to dodge? So is 
Samus'. All you have to do is execute an air dodge in back of Samus, 
Down+B counter, or shield the attack.

"while doing a lot of damage"

This will only do the full 29% if it carries the opponent through all 
the explosions. An opponent above in front or above in back of her will 
only get caught in the first couple of explosions, only doing 3% each 
hit. 

"and having excellent juggling power,"

Ahem. This move doesn't have the range of Roy's. It neither has the 
power to even lift the opponent to a decent juggling height until after 
50% damage. Roy's is better for it's power and range, damage isn't 
always everthing.

"samus can counter this with a bomb , drop off to the side of roy, and 
start himin a combo that he cant break thru"

That bomb you are talking about, is Samus' Down+B. It explodes after a 
certain height. Not only that, all Roy has to do is attack the bomb with 
his sword on an Up+A, and it will explode, neutralizing Samus' attack. 
After the Up+A attack, Roy can roll away from Samus.

Up+A Smash

Roy
Does 22% damage, trapping an opponent in a multiple hit flaming sword 
attack. It has great range, as it can juggle opponents who are just out 
of range of the normal Up+A. Because he holds his sword in the air for a 
second, it proves to be useful for many juggling purposes. The sword 
travels a good distance upwards above Roy's head.

Samus
This move is gonna hit for 29% on the first hit and drop down every 
other use. The arc is only over Samus' head, but it doesn't get good 
distance either. The flames will only travel in a line close around 
Samus' head. It's not near the range Roy's Up+A Smash. It isn't near as 
good a juggler as Roy's is either for that reason of lower range and 
height. It may not even do a full 29%, because Samus needs to hit with 
all the hits. Because every opponent will be directly above Samus, it is 
very likely they will miss the entire arc, and only be hit with a couple 
explosions, only dealing 3% a hit.

Medeus:

Samus's flamethrower is the perfect juggling attack.

How can you say that? No matter where the enemy is standing with Roy, 
he'll always push them into the air with considerable force. That means 
if you're standing beside us, we can use the Up Smash and you'll follow 
the flames. Seriously though, for all practical purposes, Roy's Up Smash 
stomps Samus' flame thrower for juggling abilities.

as enemys are falling down, samus unleashes a firey arc that goes above 
her head doing up to 30%.

But all of the hits hardly even connect...

since roys blade just goes up and not all around like samus's does.

It goes all around his sword down to his feet. Even Samus can't do that. 

both are a very quick attack, give off about same dammage, but samus's 
has a quicker recovery time cus she just puts her flame off, while roy 
still holds his blade up a bit afterwards.... also samus's covers a bit 
more space compared to roys.

If you've ever played as Ness you'll know that his Down Smash starts 
back and goes to front, but that isn't the point: Samus' Up Smash starts 
in front of her and it travels to the back of her head. Keep in mind 
that Roy's Up Smash hits all around his body, at ALL TIMES. So, if you 
were standing behind Samus, there would be more time to escape; that 
isn't the case with Roy however.

- Counter for *Rolling*

samus:

sure samus's roll may be slower than roy, but its very compact and its 
GOOD that it goes slow. it can go under a dancing blade and have time to 
shield. it also goes very far.

No, no, silly goose! Being slow is never a *good* thing! That's like 
saying it's bad to be fast, and it's not. Please don't say that again...

Getting under Roy's Double-edge Dance isn't as easy as you make it 
sound. For starters, with eighteen different combinations, using the one 
aimed down would work wonders. Besides that, the first slash hits people 
on the ground. However, I won't lie: if you were close enough to Roy, 
you could roll under it, but that would be totally forgetting the speed 
of the move. Roy lashes out with his sword... and that's about all you 
know. Those fists were fast as lightning, HUA!

roy: 

roy's may be faster, but it dosent go that far back. therefor roy 
couldnt continueously evade a barradge of smash missles and charge 
shots. while samus's can get under and away enought to not get hit by 
roys attacks.

Rolling once and then jumping soundly evades the missiles. You don't 
have to roll incessantly to dodge anything; throwing things together as 
a mix gives one the best results.

Silverhomer17:

a while ago, earlier in this topic, it was said that about the plain B 
attack that:

samus: this baby can be charged and released at any time. it cant do as 
much as roys B and doesnt have the one hit KO power ethier, but who the 
hells gonna go underneath Roys blade and say hmmm i feel like taking a 
hit today... anyway, samus's cannon does anywhere from 3%-27% and can go 
great distances without goin out. Its best used in the air or close 
range. overall a great attack from far or close up...

Roy's Fire Blade:

Yesh this attack is tight if you could pull it off aginst a human 
player. it has the one hit KOness and kwel effects. only prob is if you 
are gonna play witha a long ranged character like samus (or any human) 
you are only hurting yourself... speaking of hurting yourself, if roy 
releases this attack at or around full blast, he takes 10% dammage. not 
that good for an attack that most likely wont make contact

i don't know about you guys, but when i am fighting level 9 comps, or 
even friends, they will be sent off of the edge sooner or later. while 
they start to jump back, Roy can charge his b shot a little ways in from 
the ledge. the comp/friend graps on to the edge and pulls himself up, 
while you are waiting with a fully charged b attack, sending them off 
the screen. 

now, lets compare the edge gaurding factor of it. Roy's B attack doesn't 
take hardly any time to pull off if you tap the button. and the only way 
you would need a short amount of time to attack would be if the comp 
didn't go far at all. if the comp/friend is off for two seconds, roy's 
blade can do as much as 25 damage. correct me if i am wrong here, but 
that would be almost equal to a fully charged attack by samus, which 
takes roughly 3-3 and 1/2 seconds. if the oppenent is off for 4 seconds 
(how long it takes roy to fully charge) then a full attack can be pulled 
off, giving them 50 percent damage, and you a point for killing them, 
even if they were at 2% damage. a samus fully charged would be equal to 
about 4 seconds and would only do 28% damage and not instant kill. (i 
know you are probably saying, "Hey, silverhomer, didn't you say it takes 
3 seconds to charge?" well, not only do you have to fully charge it, but 
you have to hit the b button again to release it!)

another GREAT edge gaurding quality of roy's would be his dancing blade 
(forward smash B). if an opponent is hanging on to the edge, you can do 
his dancing blade, and the first attack should knock them off of the 
cliff (if not, just do his second forward b). samus's forward b smash 
would send a missle straight, not coming anywhere near your opponent, 
also leaving samus open to an attack that the opponent can do to get up. 
this is also a good way to get the hangman's KO bonus.

Psgamer02:

~~~~Roy in General~~~~

Roy uses a sword, I don't know which brand it is or anything fancy, I 
bet you could ask the Marth clan if you wanted to find out ^_^, anyhow, 
he extends his arm full length on a regular basis to attain the maximum 
possible range. With a big heavy sword comes spectacular priority.

His size is just below average, he is by no means tiny, but crouching 
cuts his height in half, making him a small target.

His moves advocate a sort of defensive/offensive style. He can stun you, 
but at the same time, prevent your attacking him with his range and 
speed, so he tends to take little damage, while simultaneously doing 
much damage to any enemy he may have. 

He is an all or none sort of character, just not taken to say...mewtwo 
extremes. He is fairly light, but his speed and power let his opponents 
take damage easily, but at the same time as killing the opponent easily 
with his power, his own vulnerability is accentuated by his weight and 
size.

~~~Roy pertaining to the game~~~

Power>
Roy has a lot of power behind him. Moves like Forward smash(20%), 
B(50%), Up Smash(16%), and Down Smash(19%) are the backbone of his 
power, and they serve him well. Anyone of these moves can deal out the 
damage as well as KO the opponent. His power isn't limited to these KO 
moves. He has the ability to heavily damage the opponent with His 
Forward B(20%) and Dash A(12%). All this makes for a surprisingly 
powerful character.

Speed>
There is no doubt of Roy's speed. His regular A, Up and B, Forward and 
B, Aerial moves and Smashes all have above average speed. Sacrificing 
power does not attain the speed he has. His power is retained, and his 
moves achieve a perfect balance in quickness and force. His roll is 
extremely fast, and his shield is also quick to defend him. His grabs 
also have this quickness. He grapples the opponent with a speed not 
usually seen in characters with his power. This all accounted for, he is 
a character near the top in all facets of speed.

Range>
Roy's range is his biggest asset. He has a severe lack of poor range 
moves. This is due to the very nature of his attacks. With his sword, he 
can out-range even the most deadly attacks, thus rendering them useless. 
All his A and B moves save one use this incredible sword, and that move 
(Down and B), is not an offensive move.

Arc>(range sub-category) 
His sword provides a bounty of arc. Only 5 of 25 moves don't use the 
slashing motion for the main attack (Down A, Smash Down A, Down B, 
Regular Aerial A, and Up Smash A). All other moves use to full length of 
the sword to cover as much area as possible in the attack. His arc is 
second to none.

Priority>
His attacks provide much priority. Priority is the ability to cancel or 
go through the opponents attacks. Many Roy's moves have this ability 
(Smash A moves including; Up, Down, and Forward, B, Forward + B, and Up 
+ B). Combined with Down and B (which is impossible to go through, 
literally) and you have a character that has the ability to go right 
through your attacks and turn your attack into a weakness. 

go ahead and analyze those b moves ppl (which i know a lot are about to 
right now) ill analyze SMASHES.
*ahem*
Overall: samus' smashes are fast and easy to pull off, they make good 
combo moves and send the opponent very far even at the lowest power.
roys smashes are slow and take time to pull off. yes, they have range, 
but samus can dodge the smash and counter with one of her own.

-Samus's smashes have some of the worst range in the game.

-Overall, samus has less power than Roy, especially in A moves. So if 
Samus can "Send the opponent very far even at the lowest power" Roy 
should be able to kill them no?

-Samus's slow Roll can never out-speed Roys A moves.

> smash: samus' forward smash is undoubtedly one of the fastest, if not 
the fastest, forward smashes in the game. it can be executed quickly, 
can be aimed, and has great throwing distance
roys forward smash, while having range, is slow and has an even slower 
cooldown. samus can dodge or roll around it with ease and use her own 
smash as a counter

-Marth is fastest, although samus does have speed, her awefull range and 
general stabbing motion limit its use to extremely close fighting

-Not a good edguarder due to the bad range and Hit area.

-Again, her slow roll isn't faster enough to beat Roy's Smash, which is 
quite fast, but slightly slower than Samus's.

-Roy has insane range, and more power than Samus's. It also happens to 
do more damage.

^smash: samus' ^smash has a wide radius of fire and hits several times. 
it has not ko power, but its good for using on enemies above you on 
platforms
roys ^smash has a very narrow attack radius. it is also slow and easily 
dodged. while doing a lot of damage and having excellent juggling power, 
samus can counter this with a bomb , drop off to the side of roy, and 
start himin a combo that he cant break thru

-Same speed on the start up.

-Roy can potentially hit opponents on the ground and behind him, 
something samus cant do. Roy definatly wins in the range department 
also.

-Roy's move has much better KO power.

-On average, Roy does more damage, Unless the opponent is caught in 
front of samus, and right next to her, there is no way to do the full 
damage, which is like 21%. Roy on the other hand, Can do 15+ damage 
almost all the time

\/smash: samus' \/smash has an excellent radius, and is executed very 
quickly. it can be used as a crowd clearer as it sends opponents flying. 
the back is slightly less powerful but is equally useful in combos
roys \/smash also has a good radius, but isnt executed nearly as fast. 
there is a pause between the forward and backward hit, leaving him more 
open to attacks from behind. while being a good crowd clearer, samus can 
get about 1.5 \/smashes in for every one of his (assuming they are not 
interrupted)

-Roys power is not even touched by Samus's spin move. He has much better 
range, power, and damage. Samus takes home the speed trophy. The way I 
see it, if Roy connects with this move, samus takes masses of damage and 
could be killed. The good range makes it so Samus can be out of range 
for her Down A, and yet Roy can still hit her with his move. If samus 
manages to get close enough to hit Roy with hers, it will do minimal 
damage, and not KO roy, the trajectory also limits Combing. Roys Down A 
automatically sets up an Up A smash for much more damage, but that's 
only if it doesn't kill Samus.


ets GET DOWN! o_o;;

B move: Samus's Charge cannon vs. Roys Fire Blade

Samus's charge cannon:

ahh yes the signature charge shot... this baby can be charged and 
released at any time. it cant do as much as roys B and doesnt have the 
one hit KO power ethier, but who the hells gonna go underneath Roys 
blade and say hmmm i feel like taking a hit today... anyway, samus's 
cannon does anywhere from 3%-27% and can go great distances without goin 
out. Its best used in the air or close range. overall a great attack 
from far or close up...

-Roy can easily do 27% damage, just while falling through the air and 
charging. Samus can't even Charge in the Air =(

-From far away, it can be easily Sheilded or Jumped over. It flys too 
slow to be usefull from a long ways.

-Roy's move releases way faster, and starts charging faster too =(

Roy - For Roy's forward-b move it has all types of combos. It can vary 
from 3-15 damage. In the middle of the attacks he can perform different 
varities of attacks, such as: an upward attack, forward, or downward. Of 
what i know there is 27 different combinations of Roy's foward-b attack, 
all varying in distance and power. Depending on what type of combo you 
choose it can vary in distance you hit your opponent. During the process 
of the combos it can deflect mid-air objects without Roy taking damage. 
It also has the ability to rack up damage easily.
Often, these combo moves are too powerful to pull off on an opponent all 
at once, making the combo rather ineffective. these do send opponents 
flying, but are easily avoided. Samus can roll around them. OR she could 
just stick to her own >B which is a ranged attack, and keep roy at a 
distance. Roys >B, while having good damage, distance, and somewhat 
useful as a recovery, only hits in one direction, is slow, and hard to 
pull out of if you make a mistake. while doing this samus could easily 
meteor you right down to infinity, or up to the sky, depending on where 
you are.

-What? Meteor on the stage who? Well lemme try to explain why this move 
is about 5 times better than a missle.

-WAY faster, lasts longer, more powerfull, more damage, more uses, 
recovery ability, superfast start up and recovery time, stuns for 
longer, can be used over and over due to the speed, hard to see coming, 
hard to jump over, hard to shield, good range for the speed it has, KO 
ability, Good trajectory, Combo potential, many options as the move is 
played out, ect.

Are those good enough reasons? How about these pertaining to Samus ->

-Easy to see coming, slow start up, slow finnish, lack of Combo ability, 
no power, poor hit area, less options, and useless. I would like to 
compare this move to a misquito...irritating but not dangerous.

ok >B time!

Samus's missle Vs. Roys Dancing Blade

Samus's missle:

now some may say that these are weak and cant go to far before dying 
welp.... if you knew when to use them youd know why they are good. The 
homing missle is weak thats true but its true purpose is to stop charges 
and combo attacks such as Roys B and Roys >B. the homing missle can also 
be used while your opponet is flying off the stage. it can cancel a jump 
and set up for another smash missle to be sent. speaking of smash 
missle, the super missle (as it is called in super metroid), is best 
used abit closer but not that close as to get hit by an attack. This 
fools the player into thinking its an >A smash and they back away only 
to be hit by it. the super missle is at its best when the opponet is in 
the air as well. if you can hit them with a super missle in air, theres 
an 80% chance they arent making it back. The homing missle does 4% and 
the super missle does 15-17%.

-I don't think that roy has long range charges and combos =/

-It allows Roy to use another recovery move

-Easy to see coming, hence easy to avoid/cancel/shield/dodge

Roys dancing blade:

This attack is also pretty good if you know how to use it. the part i 
always find tricky though is hitting them with the last hit. i can 
always get 3 and that gets me around 12%... anyway, you of course can 
only use this on ground. it does a fair amount of damage but normally 
when you aim up or forward on the third slash, it sends them too far 
away to start comboing away. due to samus's long jumps in the air, she 
can eaisly evade the slashes. its a nice attack and the color changes 
are good its just lacking the options samus has.

-Nope, It can be used in the Air just as effectively. It is almost more 
usefull in the Air. Super-fast disruption, combo killing, stunning, it 
can even lift people off the ground into the combo. 

-Lets Roy hover in the Air, this makes it harder to time Missiles, it 
also lets him get much more recovery distance.

Pros for Samus's >B:

longer range
a nice amount of dammage
is THE perfect edge guarder

-It only allows Roy to gain more distance on recovery if used for 
edgeguarding.

-Less than Roy for damage =(

-Long range = Easy to see coming





Cons:

it has a big recovery time afterwards so you are hopin they get caught 
in it.
it dosent send them that far unless you hit them with all 4 attacks.
cant use anywhere except ground.

-Yeah, such long recovery that it can only be used 3 times in the Air 
before Ory gets back down from his jump -_-;;

-The third attack can easily KO, and by that time the damage is already 
more than Samus's move..

-In the Air is even more effective, as I already explained 

Roy's Fire Blade:

Yesh this attack is tight if you could pull it off aginst a human 
player. it has the one hit KOness and kwel effects. only prob is if you 
are gonna play witha a long ranged character like samus (or any human) 
you are only hurting yourself... speaking of hurting yourself, if roy 
releases this attack at or around full blast, he takes 10% dammage. not 
that good for an attack that most likely wont make contact.

-lol, you can release it before it hits Roy you know. Roy can travel 
while charging too, he can fly through the Air and charge, then release 
as he arrives, basically making it a transportable move, and giving it 
range.

Pros for samus B:

Good damage for a standard B attack
Can be shot at anytime
can go across just about any stage without dissapearing
medium KO power

-Slow

-easy to see it coming

-Has to be charged to the max to be usefull




Cons:

Short range
long chargeup
he hurts himself if charged all da way

-Can also be released at anytime, but his releases much faster, 
furthering it usefulness in a realy fight.

-Can be used in the Air, momentum makes it mobile

-Releasable near the end without major Power\damage loss.

Samus- Her forward-b move is just a missle. I doesnt have any type of 
combo with it. It leaves Samus open for attack from behind so she can 
get hit. It sometimes doesnt even hit the opponent that shes aiming at 
just making it a waste of time. The missle can be deflected easily 
because it is so slow, just a tap on the A button makes it explode 
causing no damage to the opposing player. Her missle also has a delay 
time before it shoots.
Samus' forward-b is TWO missles. one is a homing missle the other is a 
powerful smash attack. this smash attack is ranged, farther than roys 
smash attack could ever range, and can be fired in the air unlike other 
smashes. this has great comboing potential, in that four or five super 
misles coming at you is impossible to avoid at once, even by jumping (a 
good samus player wouldnt fire that many in a situation where u could 
just jump outta it). by throwing you in the air, you would be only able 
to jump around them, and you only have three jumps (counting the dodge) 
that arent even that good anyway. super missles make great kos.
the homing missle is good for disrupting attacks. often the super missle 
is hard to pull off accurately in midair, this is where the homing 
missle comes in. if someone is coming back to the edge, be they abve or 
below, you can fire a missle to home in on their sorry arses to rack up 
damage and waste their jump (if its their normal jump then they just 
wasted it on a homing missle). while htis missle does a small amount of 
damage it can easily put you opponent on his/her toes.

-Range comes with projectiles, but so does Less damage, power, speed, 
ect.

-a simple Sheild or air dodge nullifys slow moving homing missles.

-Roys Up and B, that super fast Fire dragon move can easily be used just 
before the missle hits, and it can then be used again, only furthering 
our recovery. Talk about a backfire

On the contrary, Roy's forward smash can do up to 27% damage, and 
samus's can only go up to 20%, which is a huge difference. And how can 
samus's smash be "aimed"? it has extreamly bad arc, and its power is 
only minimal compared to roy. Roy swings down at a 45 degree angle, and 
has incredible range compared to samus's poor smash. Samus's smash cant 
even be used for edge guarding, since it barley covers any distance. And 
how would you be able to roll around a smash attack from roy? Roy's 
smash goes down in about .3 seconds, and the reaction time for a human 
being isnt even that much. so you would have to be pretty amazing to 
roll out of the way of something like that. plus, Samus's roll is 
extreamly slow, so even if Samus did somehow managed to evade Roy's 
smash, Roy could easily turn around and prepare another one as Samus 
recovers from the slow roll. Samus's forward smash is insanely 
inaccurate, not to mention weak, and short ranged, making it obsolete 
compared to Roy.
Samus' smash can be aimed up, down, or forward depending on how you tilt 
the joystick. this was an attribute that, sadly, didnt carry over for 
most characters from the original. it allows you to hit an opponent low 
for easier defending, high if they have decent damage on them, and just 
straight forward. Roys smash only hits high, being hit high allows you 
to recover more easily. and, you dont necessarily have to roll, you can 
dodge it too. Scenario: roy does a >smash, samus dodges, roy readies 
another smash while at the same time samus unloads a fully charged beam 
on him. the beam hits roy right before or at the same time he hits 
samus, sending him flying and leaving samus unharmed. if he hits the 
beam it cancels it out and leaves him stunned for a second. a second is 
a long time, and plenty of time to begin a combo or just to toss roy 
away and keep him away with projectiles. samus' smash seems accurate, 
but thats because its short ranged. its main use is just to knock 
enemies away from her.

-Yeah, all that scenario is BS. Unless samus uses her roll before or at 
the same time as Roy's smash, she will be hit. Can you send me that book 
quick, yeah that one entitled "psychic powers for beginners" -_-;

-Roy dominates the Power, arc, range, priority, edge-guarding, and 
combo-ability, Samus takes the "Hit guys who are right next to you a 
slight distance away" trophy.

Samus's Up Smash does crap damage, and barley hits that far at all. 
Roy's packs a punch, does a bunch of damage, and is excellent for 
starting a juggling combos. How could she counter this attack with a 
bomb, if the attack sends samus so far into the air that the bomb will 
eather dissappear before it hits Roy, or Roy will obviously move out of 
the way, or even better, Roy will just meet Samus in mid air with an A 
or Up+A or Up+B to continue a juggling combo. You can't always count on 
samus's Up+A on hitting Roy with every flame, and with its poor power, 
Roy can easily recover and follow up with a Down+B if the samus decides 
to continue attacking, or maybe with a double-edged dance.
like i said, with a bomb. if i see roy using this move then i can use a 
bomb while close to him and then move off to the side, out of harms way. 
this will obviously disrupt the attack. also, it is very very slow, as i 
also said. this move can only be pulled off while samus is high above 
roy, so she cant use her meteor to disrupt it. if you tried to use this 
move while samus almost on top of you, she could meteor you right into 
the sky with no problem. and, roy has a long cooldown time for this 
move, and samus can just hit him while he recovers, making "movng out of 
the way" very difficult.

-If you have to "see" one of roy's moves to react, you probly got hit by 
the time you got to the word "see"

-Does anyone know which attack we are talking about here?

-We don't use Counter unless the attack is started, or we expect an 
attack, as in a Combo/Juggle.

Fortunatly, Roy's Down Smash has even better radius, not to mention 
better it can do up to 28% Damage!!!! Samus's can only do up to 21%, AND 
the backward hit is weaker than the forwards hit, making the attack even 
weaker. That is a huge damage difference, making Roy's attack much more 
rounded out and better. Roy's also packs more of a punch, as it can Star 
KO someone easily. And unless you didn't notice, Samus's Down Smash also 
has a pause between the forward/backward hit.

like i said, samus' smash is faster. she can get off 1.5 of her smashes 
for his one. the pause in samus' smash is very short, while roys is a 
long one and leaves him open even to samus' forward smash. he swings, 
pauses, swings again. samus spins around with her foot. the only pause 
is while her foot is facing away or torward the camera, and that one is 
short. roys cant clear crowds well because his is too slow. samus sends 
her opponent behind her, which is a good thing because her back+a in the 
air is extremely powerful, and faster than anything roy can pull off 
while he flies from her smash.

-Speed = Samus, Everything else is owned by Roy

-The trajectory is no competition. Behind samus and you are limited to 1 
move, With Roy, being straight above him, he can uses a plethora of good 
solid Aerial moves.

Samus- Her forward-b move is just a missle. I doesnt have any type of 
combo with it. It leaves Samus open for attack from behind so she can 
get hit. It sometimes doesnt even hit the opponent that shes aiming at 
just making it a waste of time. The missle can be deflected easily 
because it is so slow, just a tap on the A button makes it explode 
causing no damage to the opposing player. Her missle also has a delay 
time before it shoots.

Kids these days. They can't stick with the truth. Let us analyze this 
shall we? Okay first of all the missile has many types of combos. Have 
you ever seen somebody getting held up in the air with missiles? The 
missiles don't leave Samus open for attack. This is a one on one battle, 
you won't have the time to run forward, and dodge the missile. The 
missiles have short startup time, and the usefulness of a long distance 
powerful attack is something that Roy will never achieve. You can never 
assume that Samus's moves are a waste of time. Ask previous clans, 
they'll tell you. If the missile misses you, either by you dodging or 
side stepping, I'll already have a second missile coming your way. You 
think the missiles are slow? Let's see Roy countdown attack...that takes 
beyond too long to catch someone off gaurd. Samus's missiles have good 
speed, great range, and excellent power. Roy's Forward B attack is 
hardly useful in one on one matches. Trust me, I know two people who use 
him, and never win against me. Roy's attack does about 15% damage if 
you're lucky, and it takes about 3 hits to do so. Samus's attack, on the 
other hand, has distance, homing capabilities, powerful attack power, 
unrivaled edge guarding capabilities, and deadly comboing abilities, all 
in exchange for 3% damage. All in all, Samus's move is better. ROy's 
attack may look good, but it's all flashy colors, and no noticeable 
potential against a player in the SSS.

-The speed of the missles, both in the air and the start up/recovery 
time, prevent any such Trap of death, or line of missles. The speed of 
them is simply to much to form a string of these and be effective.

-LOL, I like how you think that This move is better because you beat 
your friends with Samus.

-First of all, I already told the truth about this move. Lets go over it 
again, shall we? =P

a. It is by far faster than the missle, it can be used 3 times in the 
Air before Roys hits the ground again, samus gets 1 off =(
b. More damage, more power
c. Can be used for disruption, lift, quick attacks, damage, KO's, 
comboing, recovery, ect.

-Are we all fully aware now that Dancing Blade > Missile?

the grab and running throw:

samus:

Samus has the longest ranged grab in the game even without the 3× 
capibility. i have no problem executing this feat and can do it in about 
2 trys. after that, you can throw you grab pretty far and to retrive 
your prize catch, just press the A button. if he dosent like the bait, 
home in on him with L. this is much better then Roy's simple grab and 
throw which i shall add, dosent send them that far. all of her throws do 
7% by the way...

-Super slow, so slow in fact that Roy can grab samus 3 times before her 
grab gets to him.

-All of her grabs save one completely nullify any chance of a combo by 
throwing them on the ground. Then she has to Recover herself and go over 
there. By then, there is no chance to Combo.
-------------------------------------------

Samus's running throw also is the longest ranged running grab/throw in 
the game. its great to use when you are back from the person abit and 
they are recovering from a move (i.e. Roys flare blade) it does 7% and 
is probally the best running throw in the game.

-Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range 
Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range 
Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range Range.

-Roy runs Immensely faster than Samus, 

-She has to hunch over, wind up, and throw that thing, Roy simply 
extends his arm and he has got them. 

roy:

Roy's grab is a pretty good throw but its just like most other 
characters grabs and is a bit weaker when he throws than most throws in 
distance. id say roys best throw would be the ^ throw for juggling and 
such (samus has a trump card for that ^_^)but otherwise its just a 
normal grab.

-His Down Grab is the perfect combo setter. He tosses them in the Air a 
slight distance, stunned. This is the perfect set up for a Smash, 
Running A, B, just about anything.

Roys running grab/throw is also pretty normal. samus really takes the 
cake in the multi function grappling beam. roys running throw has a 
averadge recovery time allowing samus to try to get a quick running A in 
there...

-Faster in every way, samus's throw is so slow, that a person can see it 
coming and roll back out of the way. You will be done rolling with just 
enough time to walk up and Smack Samus as she recovers from the huge 
slow grappling beam of Gargantuas.

Pros for Samus's Grab:

longest range
with 3× ability on, you can home in
good damage

-Immensely slow, almost impossible to hit with unless the opponent isn't 
ready for it.



Cons:

recovery time is a bit more than usual
its range is microscopic compared to samus grappling beam

-What? His grab is slow? I don't get it, you have the slowest grab in 
the game >_>

-His quick speed allows him to actually use his in a fight, as a roll 
would take too long to dodge it, and shielding is ineffective.

Pros for Samus running grab

best range for running grab
throw does ok amount dammage
is great to break up combo attempts

-Extremely slow running.

-How does Samus Run at roy as he is already doing a Combo? The combo 
would most likey be over by then, if a person had a low enough IQ to 
combo mid-air =/



Cons:

the range once again isnt great compared to samus's which gives him a 
greater chance of missing leaving him open.

-Samus's massive range = Disadvantage

a. Its so damn slow, it is nearly ineffective
b. The slow recovery time allows Roy to run circles around Samus
c. Samus is defenseless if she misses
d. A simple roll will negate this Gigantic grab.

eather way, the attack still does poor damage, and when i was messing 
around with it, it seemed like it was dealing the same amount of 
knockback power if you hit high, low, or straight. Roy doesn't need to 
aim his attack, is it swings at an arc and hits all in front of him. In 
your scenario how did Samus get the fully charged beam? Any idiot 
wouldn't let Samus stand somewhere and charge, and with Roy's high 
running speed, he could easily catch Samus if she tried to Run and 
charge somewhere. And if you do happen to charge the beam all the way 
and unleash it at the same time Roy smashes, the attack will cancel out, 
as you mentioned, but roy wont be the only one stunned for a moment. 
Samus has just as long of a cool-down time as the time to cancel out an 
attack is, so we would be even. Another thing is when you're aiming 
samus's smash, you have to aim it before you can charge it. So it's 
still an inaccurate attack because it only hits in one spot, and is hard 
to be trajected into the right location of an enemy at the last moment. 
For Roy, he only needs to smash forward, and it slices anything infront 
of him diagonally and infront of him directly, AND a short ways away 
from him.

if youve ever played the original all samus did as a cp was just roll 
around and charge. samus can build up this way, by saving the charge. 
and, samus can charge while roy is dying, recovering, and if he messes 
up (messing up on any move is a great time to charge for samus) like say 
for example he gets a >B combo started but misses on the first hit. lets 
say the human playing him, by reflex, hits b again, this gives samus a 
chance to charge while he follies in his combo.
an ur right, my bad, samus does indeed recover as long as a cancel 
recoil, but she can still roll away faster than he can get another 
attack off afterwards

-So you are going to charge while Roy's Forward B move Recovers eh?

a. His Forward B move has almost no recovery time.
b. This move is so fast that by the time samus rolls away and starts 
charging, Roy is there and waiting.
c. If you don't believe "b," try it yourself.



aiight lets do the ^A smash

Samus's flamethrower vs. Roy's firey blade thing

Samus:

Samus's flamethrower is the perfect juggling attack. as enemys are 
falling down, samus unleashes a firey arc that goes above her head doing 
up to 30%. since roys blade just goes up and not all around like samus's 
does. both are a very quick attack, give off about same dammage, but 
samus's has a quicker recovery time cus she just puts her flame off, 
while roy still holds his blade up a bit afterwards.... also samus's 
covers a bit more space compared to roys.

a. Nope, Roy has better hit area

Roy:
.....***
...***
....*()*
...*<|>*
-----/\----

Samus:
....****
...*.()*
...-<|>
-----/\----

-No way in hell Samus's move ever pulls off the full damage. The 
opponent has to be right in front of Samus, and not moving, and standing 
upright.

-Roys move can hit in back of Him, and it last longer in all the hit 
areas.



Pros for samus:

good range
great combo abilities
nice dammageness

-it can potentially do more damage, but in extreme circumstances.

-Can't combo as well as Roy, due to the trajectory as it hits near the 
end. It doesn't have good power and it hits behind her, making the 
opponent recover at the same speed as you, and they also end up right 
behind you, no room for combos.



Cons:

slower recovery time than samus's
covers less than samus's does

-It recovers slower, but it also lasts longer, making it easy to be hit, 
even if you air guard to disrupt timing.

-"covers less area" ß----Blatant Lie

lets do edge gaurding defense

Samus:

well besides the fact samus falls slow allowing her to hover over Roy, 
and the apparent grab on ledge and roll, she has her friend, THE 
GRAPPLING BEAM!!!!1! this can hang on to ledges with ease and pull 
herself to the ledge and/or get into the air, overall, a varity of 
options.

-The slow speed allows for a longer charge from Flare Blade, which also 
hits above Roy.

Roy:

The only real thing roy can do is grab on the ledge. unless hes way up, 
he falls too fast to hover over samus's range. without the grappling 
beam or hook shot and whatnot, roy falls short on the defense area

-His up and B move hits samus behind him, turning the tables on the 
edgeguarding.

-Not to mention his insanely fast Air moves and Forward B, allowing him 
to recovery easily. 

-Aimable Up and B allows for dodging Moves.

stage strat:
Stage: Fourside
Samus definitely wins this one. In a one on on, roy would have to jump 
all the way across the course and samus would have plenty of time to 
charge her beam. the small holes make easier recovery for roy, who has 
sheer vertical recovery power in his ^B, but even better for samus, who 
can jump from wall to wall, making it all but impossible to ko her down 
there, esp. since roy has no meteor attack. Not to mention her wall jump 
can allow her to dodge attacks quite easily by jumping off the center 
building. The ufo is slippery, and a battle on it would not be easy for 
roy, who would be a sitting duck for samus' missles. There are plenty of 
areas samus can just hide to charge up her beam while roy chases her 
down, and with her superior jumping she can easily outmaneuvar him.

-the staggered platforms jack the range of Samus's projectiles, making 
it easier for Roy to jump around and attack without being in the hit 
area of Samus.

-Flare blade thrives on Momentum...the UFO only adds range to the most 
powerful move in the game.

-lol, out-maneuver Roy in the AIR? With Samus!!!!?!?! You have got to be 
kidding me, please tell me you are kidding. Roy jumps way faster, runs 
way faster, falls way faster, attacks way faster, I don't see any out-
maneuvering there.

lets roll baby!

samus:

sure samus's roll may be slower than roy, but its very compact and its 
GOOD that it goes slow. it can go under a dancing blade and have time to 
shield. it also goes very far.

-Heh, I know I sure would like to have a super-predictable and slow 
moving roll -_-;;

roy: 

roy's may be faster, but it dosent go that far back. therefor roy 
couldnt continueously evade a barradge of smash missles and charge 
shots. while samus's can get under and away enought to not get hit by 
roys attacks.

-Roy gets nearly the same distance in much less time.

-Both characters are invincible during this time, so size doesn't 
matter.

Stage strat:
Stage: Brinstar Depths
One thing to say before i get started: this course was made for samus. 
It was made to accomodate her style of close-range fighting and aerial 
maneuvaring by giving her many many chances to use the wall jump. The 
rotating of the course is hazardous for roy who doesnt have as good 
aerial maneuvaring as samus. samus can easily just jump from platform to 
platform while roy would have to land on each platform or use dodges 
constantly. the many obstacles jutting from the surface allow samus to 
use her long legs and make use of her ^a which doesnt get much use 
against roy. It may seem, though, that her projectiles dont get as much 
use. But on the contrary, her missles and charge shot are at their 
fullest potential as edgeguarders. Being that there are no ledges to 
grab onto, samus can easily knok you away and keep you away with the 
missles and beam. which brings me to my next point, samus can use her 
grapple beam as a recovery, better than any other course in the game. 
The only other characters who can do this are link and y. link, and they 
arent in this argument. but the grapple beam/hookshot compensates for 
the lack of a ledge by allowing samus to literally grab onto the edge of 
the course and pull herself in, unlike roy who, once out, has little 
chance of recovery.

-LOL, how does samus's slow jumping and falling compute to Good Air 
maneuverability?

-The many obstacles are in roy's favor by shielding him from projectiles 
and letting his fast, ranged, physical attacks hit easily.

-Roy, at this stage, is at a huge advantage. His general quickness 
allows him to jump over obstacles and attack much faster than Samus.

-Roy can use his speedy recovery to get back before the slow 
moving/jumping samus can get to where he is going to land.

Stage strat:
Stage: poke floats
Again, the lack of ledges to grab onto puts samus at an advantage, 
recovery wise. Also, samus' long roll comes in hand here as she can 
easily evade many of roys attacks as he moves into position. The 
pokemon's movement makes it an obstacle course for roys limited jumping, 
while samus moves through this course at ease. Another one where samus 
excels.

-Nope, samus's slow jumping puts her at a disadvantage when It comes 
time to scamper to the float. Also, Roy's 

-Roys quick jumping and recovery time allows him to always get to the 
next float, while samus's general slow attacks put her in jeopardy.

edge gaurding offense

Samus:

Samus has a varity on things to use in air. she has projectiles such as 
the missles and the charge shot covers alot and can basicly kill if you 
are in the air. the smash missle if you can time it, can take away a 
jump. she can also use her >A smash or down A smash to get him eaisly.

-Down A hits upward, letting Roy recover.

-Forward A has too short of a range, Roy could easily let back and grab 
the edge.

-All Samus's projectiles allow Roy another Recover move, furthering his 
recovery. The Chrage shot also takes too long to charge as roy is in the 
Air, and the "release anytime" thing is hard to time because of its slow 
start up time.

Roy: 

roy has a couple of attacks up his sleeve too just nat as many or as 
useful as samus's. he has the >A smash, the down A smash, and the B. 
these attacks are good but cant stop him in midair.

-?

-Flare blade is The best edge guarder in the game, ill explain in short 
here, and in pepth later.

a. He can Instantly release it at anytime
b. Samus's slowness in the Air only allows a more powerfull charge when 
samus gets back.
c. Very powerfull, almost guarantees a kill if it hits.
d. It covers all the area in front of, and above roy, and hits forward 
always.

The further your dumb roll goes, the more time the opponent has for 
setting up an attack.

yea my dumb roll does go far, no the opponet wont have time to set up an 
attack unless its a running A due to how far away ill be.

Is there something wrong with hitting Samus with a Running A everytime 
she rolls?

juggling defense...

Samus:

welp, its hard for most characters to defend a juggle, but then there's 
samus. she has the bombs thatll stop and stun as long as roy isnt 
releasing an attack (thats why you use the bombs high up) even if he is 
it forces him to take another attack to charge which is a waste of time. 
she can also (if she times it right) use a down A spike.

-Bombs, when released, start falling above Samus, not exactly a shield 
of defense =(

-Her spike is feasible, but hard to time and last much less time that 
say, Roys Up and A smash.

Roy:

Roy lacks one thing in this game: projectiles. roy has basicly no 
defense while juggling and he can ethier jump away or try a down a 
areail. not too much for roy to do here...

-How do Projectiles Prevent Juggling?

-His Dancing blade is very fast, lifts him up, catches the enemy, 
disrupts timing.

-His speed in the Air is a huge advantage. His fast Jump, Up B, and 
Dancing blade can prevent most juggles.

Buckwheatz Return:

Counter regarding B

"B move: Samus's Charge cannon vs. Roys Fire Blade

Samus's charge cannon:

ahh yes the signature charge shot... this baby can be charged and 
released at any time. it cant do as much as roys B and doesnt have the 
one hit KO power ethier, but who the hells gonna go underneath Roys 
blade and say hmmm i feel like taking a hit today..."

First of all, who would use this move out in the open? This move is best 
used for edgeguarding, and timing and patience is a big key on Roy's 
part. It can be charged in the air, and continued even when Roy hits the 
ground, unlike Samus, who can do neither with her Charge Shot.

"anyway, samus's cannon does anywhere from 3%-27% and can go great 
distances without goin out."

But, it can be avoided by a shield, roll, or even countered with Roy's 
Down+B.

"Its best used in the air or close range. overall a great attack from 
far or close up..."

In the air it cannot be charged though. Samus doesn't have the options 
that Roy has with his Flare Blade, making Charge Shot quite predictable. 
Not to mention it travels in a straight, easy to dodge path across the 
screen. We want you to use it up close. This way you are in range for 
Roy's counter strike with the Down+B, when we both deflect your shot 
away, and do 1.5x the damage of the shot back at you after the shot is 
fired and while you are stunned.

"Roy's Fire Blade:

Yesh this attack is tight if you could pull it off aginst a human 
player. it has the one hit KOness and kwel effects. only prob is if you 
are gonna play witha a long ranged character like samus (or any human) 
you are only hurting yourself..."

Whats so wrong with playing against long range characters? We can 
counter as well as dodge projectiles. It's not hard especially with 
projectiles as slow moving and predictable as Samus' Forward+B and B. We 
can release Flare Blade when we want, reset ourselves, and continue to 
charge when edgeguarding. 

"speaking of hurting yourself, if roy releases this attack at or around 
full blast, he takes 10% dammage. not that good for an attack that most 
likely wont make contact."

It's gonna do 10% to Roy when it's FULLY charged up. This is also gonna 
do 50% to the opponent, as well as hit them with a mega powerful blow 
that can KO opponents from the center of normal size stages. Samus' is 
less power and less damage, as well as a slow and predictable 
projectile, so that can't really compare. It isn't always necessary to 
charge this attack up fully either. Roy has the option to charge Flare 
Blade and release at any point both on the ground and in midair. This is 
something Samus's Charge Shot can't do. As I have said before too, it is 
more likely to KO someone at full force with this move while 
edgeguarding, because the option is there always to release and reset 
your position according to your opponents edgeguarding defense moves.

Con't Counter regarding B

"Pros for samus B:

Good damage for a standard B attack
Can be shot at anytime
can go across just about any stage without dissapearing
medium KO power"

28% is standard. Roy's is above standard then because of it's 
possibilities to do 50% and KO an opponent. Roy's Flare blade can he 
thrown out anytime as well as charged at any time, but Samus is 
restricted to ground charging only. She cannot charge her shot once she 
is in midair, she can only release it. It can be dodged, countered, or 
shielded against too. As I said the first paragraph, if this is at 
Medium KO power, Roy's is VERY close to max KO power.

"Cons:

well it takes abit to charge..."

Charge shot can't be charged in the air either, like Roy's Flare blade.

"Pros for roys B:

one hit KO dammage and a good close range attack"

No, it's not a good close range attack. It is a well ranged non-
projectile attack. It's range is by far BETTER than many of Samus' non-
projectile attacks.

"Cons:

Short range
long chargeup
he hurts himself if charged all da way"

Puh, I commented on the "short" range. What are you comparing this to? 
Samus' projectile attacks? That isn't fair, because this Flare Blade of 
Roy's is a non-projectile attack. Being a well ranged non-projectile 
attack, this move can beat out many of Samus' non-projectile attacks. 
The lo0Ong chargeup? How about Samus? Her's takes a while too, and she 
is limited to charge this one on the ground. Roy can charge Flare Blade 
in the air, as well as continue his charge when he hits the ground. When 
charged up all the way, yes, Roy does 10% damage on himself. But look at 
what he is producing! A powerful long ranged non-projectile attack that 
does 50% damage on an opponent as well as possessing the ability to KO 
opponents with this attack alone!!! By all means, I consider the KO 
worth the trade for a measly 10% scratch to Roy.

oh, i have something for the up b/third jump!

i will use mario in my example.

say you come back from being thrown or hit off the edge, and you are 
right below the platform, and still have your up b. here is a model

X= mario
Y= Roy/Samus
___= surface

___X___
\........../
.\......../ Y

okay, mario is trying to hit you with a fireball while you come up. Roy 
has a VERY fast third jump the is very hard to hit with a fireball of 
mario's. (great timing would be needed) while samus on the other hand is 
very slow and can be predicted from a mile away. I think that Roy will 
deal more damage with his up b than samus

~~~A moves~~~

His Aerial move-set leaves something to be desired in the power 
department, but they generally have the speed for disruption, the power 
to kill and the range for usefulness.

His Smash "A" move set is awesome. Tons of Priority, Range and power, 
not to mention the above par speed and you get Roy's Smash Set, one of 
the best in the game.

Roy's standing "A" non-smashes are his strongest point. The superb speed 
and range make them some of the most disruptive and best combo starting 
moves there are. The enemy attacks with a Smash or B move, you use 
regular "A" that's a fairly basic scenario, so lets elaborate. Roy's 
slash does 2 things, it goes faster than most moves, and it has a better 
range than most moves. It will hit you, and your move is worthless if it 
is cancelled, so roy has the upper hand on a stunned and un-attacking 
opponent. Simply follow up with a Smash forward, and they have just 
taken 25 % and possibly been killed. Regular "A" moves are critical to 
Roy's success on the ground.

Running speed is great, so that only adds to the usefulness his running 
"A" move. This area is fairly specific, so I will explain it all in a 
separate post..

~~~~Air A~~~~

Roy

Check out this sweet diagram to help explain the use of this move....
...........\...()..<A
.............\<|>
..............-/\--------
.................
.....()..<B
....<|>
-----/\-

"Person" A is Roy, "Person" B is the opponent....that is, if you couldn't 
already tell.

This move is most effective at any stage with platforms, (25 of 29 
stages do have platforms)...you simply jump from any area where the 
heights of your character and the opponent are different. This height 
difference gives ample time to get the sword swinging.

Shields don't fully cover a character unless the shield has been raised 
during the exact instant of the attack, and the erratic swinging action 
of this move prevents accurate timing for the opponent to raise a 
shield. It will be quite easy to hit the enemy in the area where the 
shield doesn't protect, either near the bottom or near the top of the 
character. 


-It can do either 4, 8 or 12 damage. The first slash does 4, the second 
is 8, and if you are falling with them, It can do the 12%. This is 
obviously very good for an aerial "A" move. 

-It has spectacular range because Roy fully extends his arm and Sword to 
get a bounty of distance.

-It has good start up time, and the recovery is the same amount of time 
as a jump, which is very little. His legs can still land on the ground 
while he swings the sword with his arms; this lets him recover much 
faster than normal character would.

-Samus does a base 10%, which is more than Roy

-Samus's move is much slower on the recovery and start up beacuse she 
has to use her legs to land on, which means she has to extend her foot, 
then to land on it she has to pull it in, Roy has no such problem.

-It doesnt last nearly as long as Roy, and due to her slow speed in the 
Air, it is very predicatable to see coming. (air Guard)

Buckwheatz Return:

Up+A

Roy
Roy will swing his sword in an arc, doing 9% to any opponents in its 
path. This move has power, as it can pop up an opponent into the air 
either for starting a juggling combo, or maintaining a juggle. Whether 
it be from the ground, or from midair, if an opponent is hit, they will 
be sent back into the air. Wherever in the arc that Roy hits his 
opponent with this move, they will be sent flying into the air. Roy's 
arc covers a very wide range above his head, as well as covering around 
his entire body, as he hits opponents on either side next to him. The 
wide and ranged arc makes Roy's Up+A very useful in juggling opponents, 
as it has a large hit area. Now for an image:

============================
........................................................
........................................................
R = Roy
x = Areas the Up+A will hit an opponent.

As you can see from this image, Roy has quite a wide hitting arc with 
this move. From the ground, Roy can hit an opponent on either side of 
him. There are arrows showing that the opponent who is hit by this will 
be sent up into the air. Roy can set up excellent juggles from there.

Up+A (Con't ^_^;;)

Samus
Samus does a heel drop doing 13%. Although doing a BIT more damage than 
Roy's Up+A, it has little use and little power. It does an arc, but it's 
not like Roy's where you can predict exactly what direction your 
opponent is heading. It hits at odd angles, so it won't be able to set 
up opponents for juggles. Because of it's many directions it will send 
the opponent, it's hard and confusing to predict where your opponent 
will go Hence that is another reason why this move can't juggle. It can 
in one place, pop the opponent up for a juggle, but the place is a very 
limited one, being below Samus' legs. Even this place though, is hard to 
hit at, and most likely you will hit the opponent at the frontwards 
angle, doing some damage to them, but sending them nowhere. Lets go to 
the image:

..................Sxx................................
===========x================
........................................................
........................................................
S = Samus
x = Areas the Up+A will hit an opponent.

Samus' Up+A as you can see is quite complex. If an opponent is in the 
air when she first starts off the heel drop, or if they are in mid air 
next to her, they will be sent a small distance away. If they are at 
even level with Samus, the heel drop will send them NOWHERE! Yes, 
nowhere. The opponent will simply stay in place. The reason being this 
move lacks power. The ONLY way Samus could ever get an opponent into the 
air with this move is if they are below Samus. The only real time this 
can happen is if an opponent is stunned lying flat on the ground. But 
how often will that happen, that a Roy player would just watch a Samus 
player kick them up into the air? Hardly ever. There is a nifty ground 
counter move, as well as ground roll out of that stunned position that 
is available to Roy for escape. Because of all this, it ain't too hot of 
a juggler. Not near as good a juggler Roy's Up+A is at least.

Let me clarify a bit for you there, Nate.

Up-B Blazer

Roy

Roy does a flaming sword uppercut! This move is very useful in combos. 
It hits your enemy with a continuous flame attack. It is also one of 
Roy's comeback move (the Forward+A helps too!). The closer you are to 
your target, the more damage dealt. This move can also be aimed! Hit B 
and diagonally up and forward, and he trades some vertical height for 
some horizontal distance! It is possible to use this move for juggling 
too. One special function of this move is its ability to KO. When you 
Up+B near an opponent, it is possible just after it is executed to aim 
Roy in the opposite direction. This will not only steer Roy away from a 
cliff if he happens to be near an edge with the opponent, but it knocks 
the opponent sky high! Some light opponents can be KOed at low percents. 
It is possible to kill an opponent at 0% with this technique. Thanks to 
Acidfreeze for a lot of these ideas.

actually, samus cannot jump that high with her up B attack, Roy can jump 
higher, so there is the first thing. second, samus cannot jump 
horrizontally except when she stops spinning. so, her jump would look

Buckwheatz Revenge:

Forward+B Double Edge Dance

Roy
Roy (shows pretty rainbow colors O_o;;; as he) executes a 4 hit combo. 
The key to this is that you time your B button taps just right so he 
executes each of his 4 hits on the enemy(I usually wait until the full 
swing of the past blade sweep is completed). If you hit an enemy with 
the 4th swing, they will burn up. The swings can even be aimed. This 
gives it the following uses:

1. can be started in the air and continued when Roy hits the ground, 
gaining him horizontal distance to get back to an edge, making it an 
EXCELLENT edgeguarding defense tool! ^_^
2. can be used as well to edgeguard because it has excellent range and 
the duration of the combo (should you choose to use all 4 swipes). 
3. is an excellent comboer, the moves come out one after the other, 
getting your opponent caught in it. When used on an opponent at low 
damage, this is damage % racking. When used on an opponent at high 
damage, can KO an opponent. 
4. because you can aim the swipes, this can be used in a variety of ways 
to KO. You can aim up to juggle an opponent, or down to spike them, or 
keep it simple and just go straight forward in a combo with it. Many 
options are available. It is VERY hard for an opponent to predict which 
way you will swipe because Roy also has good speed while using this. 
Before the opponent can react, they are caught in the combo! ^_^

************************************************

*activates work of art skillz*

Legend: #'s = column number and step of the swipe, R = Roy, X = 
direction of sword swipe; can hit either up, down, or forward.

Columns:

-------------------------------------------
..........X....X....X - Direction UP
R..X....X....X....X - Direction FORWARD (or unaimed, default if you just tap B 
alone)
................X....X - Direction DOWN

This shows the variety Roy has when using his B moves alone. If the 
fourth hit is directed down,, he goes into a short infinite-hit-like 
combo. This is not all though. After you use the first B, you can also 
use the A button, or any other A move such as smash, etc. Allowing a 
greater chance for combos!

*ends art skillz*

More on Roy's Forward+B

The first hit is always the same. It can't be pointed up or down, 
because otherwise you'd use B Up or B Down. o_o After the first hit 
though, you can work wonders. Many thanks to Aerodude for supplying this 
table.

2nd hit(upward)- knocks opponent into the air, ready to be comboed.
2nd hit(forward)- a continuation of the straight forward combo. It 
stuns, and inflicts 5%.

3rd hit(upward)- a spike. A very useful tool when edgeguarding.
3rd hit(forward)- a forceful move that can clear.
3rd hit(downward)- sets on fire, and builds up damage. It can get up to 
15% damage at one time. Is a sweeping move, so it can hit the smallest 
characters, even Pichu.

4th hit(upward)- a strengthened and widely ranged move, it send the 
opponent less vertically than horizontally, so it's a good KO move and 
excellent finisher to the combo.
4th hit(forward)- a good KO move. It's similar to his Forward Smash.
4th hit(downward)- an infinite combo. It hits 5 times altogether, but 
Roy, unlike Marth, throws in some fire, to inflict an extra 4% with each 
hit. So, it can get up to 25%, even without any of the other hits. !O_O!

That's all I have to say there. It can also be used to get back to the 
edge. Keep using the first hit and hold down the direction of the ledge 
you are returning to. This makes it a good edgeguarding defense move! 
^_^

One last bit:

Down+B Counter

Roy
Roy stands still and absorbs the attack of his opponent with his sword. 
The opponent is temporarily stunned along with Roy as he blocks and 
absorbs the attack, and dishes back an attack to the opponent for 1.5x 
the damage! This move is very useful in that you can counter many close 
range moves with this, and Roy can counter moves while in the air as 
well! When you time this move just right, it will be hard for an 
opponent to touch you with one of their moves, because Roy will not be 
harmed, and retort an attack right back at an opponent, free of charge! 
A great tool when used as edgeguarding defense. It's sorta like Falcon's 
Up+B, because time will temporarily "halt" for Roy and the opposing 
character involved in this move. ^_^

Now that I have my information out, it's all counters for me from here 
on in!!!

But you have to face that direction to go that way =(

....$$$.....

Roy can go straight up, or to one side, with his Forwad B moves, 
horizontal recovery isnt a problem, hence, his mostly upward path is 
ideal for him.

I don't think I did this right, so I'll sum it up. Roy's attack has a 
more automatic movement range, it basically follows a path, where as 
samus has full control of her attack, until she hits the ground.

-Roy has all the horizontal recovery he needs through Forward B.

-Roys recovery is much much faster than samus's, it also has hit power 
at the end. Unlike samus who needs to have the enemy caught near the 
start to do much of anything, Roy can KO even just as they touch the tip 
at the very end.

DAMAGE
Samuses attack can do about 10, at a maximum of 12, whereas Roy does 7, 
at a maximum of 12. about tied, but samauses is still a lil better.

-Nope, that is is the enemy is caught in the entire thing. It is much 
easier to catch the opponent in Roys move because of the fast moving 
move, and the full length of the sword catches them and pulls them in. 
Samus balls up, and spins, this makes her hit area smaller them Roy's.

USEFULNESS

Roy:
-little use for recovery, as it gives roy little control.
-Not much for crowd clearing, as it tends to send the CPU the same 
distance, no matter how much damage.
-A good 12% damage, at times can be comboed
-Basically, only done for blatant damage.

-One of the best anti-edgeguarding moves, as it pulls the enemy toward 
the pit as he land on the stage. This turns the table on the situation.

-Fire effect for stunning beyond Samus's ablity

-Roy only needs Vertical Recovery as his Forward B move can be used 
multiple times to gain Forward motion, this lets sets up a lack of need 
for forward Recovery move motion.

Samus:
-Good for recovery, as you have control of samus while in air.
-serves as not only a jump, but also as an attack and crowd clearer, 
too.
-Gives good height and distance
-Pulls enemies in for longer attacks, then lets them fly!
-Quick pullof time
-A good 12% damage, and can be repeated and strung into combos

-Slow moving, easy to time the landing.

-Samus recovery slower than the opponent being hit, this negates chances 
for Combos.

-Damn, i have to check something.....Yup, i was correct. Roy has vastly 
superior vertical recovery.

-relitivly the same damage, although roy has power at the end of the 
move that samus need to build up throughout the spin.

Silverhomer17:

Looks:

Roy is a young looking guy, age 16-18. has prince status and a spiffy 
sword, with good armour.

Samus has some snazy armour, but physical appearence is unknown. Age is 
also unknown, and a lot of people think she is a he. 

jumping looks:

Roy: A fewfancy spins and sword tricks for his third attack.
Samus: No uniquety(is that a word??) does a few front spins in 2nd and 
3rd jump.

Winning poses:

Roy: Fancy sword handling skills and speaking in japanese.
Samus: Fires her gun and doesn't say a word.

Taunt:

Roy: spiffy sword art and a war cry that isn't annoying (like Capton 
Falcon).
Samus: Nothing original, same as in the first smash brothers game.

Psgamer02:

~~~~B moves in general~~~~

-Roy's B moves are mostly Fire elemental. 

Fire-

a. Stuns for much longer than a non-flaming move of the same sort. 
b. Generally does more damage than without flames.
c. Most of the time, flaming moves have sort of a hit area, like a real 
fire, you don't necessarily have to be in the fire to get hurt, 
generally just being near it will get you some lovin =)
d. Explosions and fire can be confusing, most often in multi-person 
play. It can be very difficult to recognize a flaming spot on the stage 
and hit it accurately with an item or projectile.

Multiusage- Roy's "B" moves are extremely multitasking. Forward "B" can 
be used for recovering and combos, but the immense speed of it is useful 
in combo disruption and cancellation. Also, His Counter is a completely 
Defensive move, it can potentially do more damage than any other move in 
the game, and if used correctly, it can and will save your butt many 
times over. Obviously his Up and B can be used for Getting out of a 
tight spot due to its speed, but the Aim ability of it makes it very 
useful in recovering, as you can mold it to your needs. Regular B just 
kills people, no diversity there =)

~~~~B Move Specifics~~~~

Roy's B
(6%-50%)Flare Blade is awesome for its downright versatility. It can't 
lose in the downright power section. The full amount of charge will do 
great damage, and with charging, comes power. It is unparalleled in KO 
power, and the most damaging B move in the game.

It releases very quickly, so it can be used in regular combat as well as 
situations where power in needed. It can be charged up any amount of 
time you need. You can sacrifice speed for all the power you will ever 
need, or simply use it to defend yourself by hitting the opponent away. 

It can also be used in the Air. You can use it like any other Air move, 
but the advantage is the timing and trajectory. You can release it at 
any time, and it hits the enemy straight away from Roy. This provides a 
trajectory not found in any many other moves. In the Air, your momentum 
carries you till you release the attack. This means that you can 
actually travel short distances before releasing. This only furthers the 
Aerial usefulness because a stationary charge move is obviously disrupt-
able, and this feature allows you to move, making it harder to stop this 
attack. Another advantage is the ability to come from above/the side 
with this attack. Just standing on the ground charging, like samus would 
easily be seen, and countered. But, a powerful, quick, ranged attack 
from above would be much harder to anticipate. 

Its arc covers all the area in front of Roy, and above him. Even 
slightly behind him is dangerous to opponents. Being right behind him is 
a very dangerous, as Roys sword gets stronger towards the hilt. Being 
right by Roy on either side is devastating. This move covers a 90-degree 
arc, meaning a simple turn of Roy makes him effectively shielded from 
above and the front. 90-Degrees + 90-Degrees=Protective barrier.

The range is spectacular, especially when fully charged. Un-charged, its 
swipe extends very far, and has only a slightly shorter range than Smash 
A. Charged, it is Roys most ranged move, extending much farther than 
almost all other physical attacks. In the Air, you can fall forward with 
the momentum Roy gets, and add even more range to this move. 

The priority this move has is also great. It can hit through near 
anything once it is charged. He can be hit while charging, but only from 
behind because he can simply release the sword at any time to ward off 
incoming attacks. Another useful tactic involves retreating. Jump 
backwards, and start charging, if they follow you into the air, use the 
Arc, Priority and Power to fend off all attacks. This effectively 
shields you in the air. 

It is a good edge-guarding move because it has no specific release time. 
If they are a long ways off, start charging. If they manage to get near, 
the "splash hit" from a powerful swipe will push them away with too much 
force to come back from. If they are only slightly off, you could simply 
tap the button to do a quick to medium slash and still come up with 
enough power to hit them to their deaths. The longer the opponent is off 
of the stage, the more air they lose. The longer they hang on the ledge, 
the more they risk of falling. No matter what, it's a waiting game, and 
the longer you delay it, the stronger Roy's B becomes, without 
sacrificing speed. 

Rolling
Roy has one of the better rolls in this game. He plants his hand on the 
ground, and then he whips his feet around this fulcrum in a very 
distracting manner. He flails around, as he is invincible. This makes 
his roll very unpredictable. 

The above average roll distance he achieves is also a strong plus. Roy 
has good range moves, especially on the ground. The advantage here is 
the fact that with these well-ranged moves, after he rolls around the 
opponent, he will be just out of their range, but his attacks, having a 
better range, will be able to hit with ease. 

On the other hand, samus's lack of fast and long ranges moves makes her 
Roll put her out of range to attack, but still in range for Roy.

This roll's speed is also a strong point. At approximately .6 seconds, 
it is one of the fastest in the game. With this speed of rolling, it is 
nearly impossible to react in time to counter this. Roy will be rolling 
behind you, and because of a thing called reaction time, you will not be 
able to counter an attack from the rear. The only solution is the 
shield. In a shielding situation, Roy can break your shield with his 
Smash A, or simply wait for you, (on the defending side), to act or 
react to the situation. In either case, Roy achieves the upper hand with 
this good roll. 

-Samus's roll is quite a bit slower =/

~~~Roy's Sexy~~~

Roy is by far the most attractive character in this game. 

His mannerisms

He shifts his weight from leg to leg, bouncing, bouncing, on his sweet-
ass boots. While he waits, he clinches his fist, then relaxes, then 
clinches his fist, almost like meditation. He holds his sword perfectly 
steady, waiting to spring at any time, upon an unsuspecting foe. He 
blinks very infrequently, keeping his eye upon the opponent at all 
times, again, waiting to spring into action.

His appearance

Roy has the best wardrobe selection....

He wears super-cool knee-high boots, with protection over his toes, a 
metal strap to prevent incapacitation in a running fight. He dons sword-
fighting gloves, with the fingers cut out so that he may be able to have 
better control of his steel handled sword. Also, fully armored shoulders 
are protected by a 3-piece pull over vest, which also protects his vital 
organs. His cape can flail around in the wind, as if he is a hero just 
arriving at the castle to save the maiden, and with that pimpin' scarf 
he wears, he will be irresistible to any lady. His cool headband keeps 
his dashing hair out of his eyes, and tight pants to show off his 
package. Roy has it all in his closet, making him definitely the best 
looking and sexiest.

Samus is a girl, but the metal suit thing is a bit of a turnoff =(


w00t! our clan really pwnz! Obviously whatever is dissing 
Roy or promoting samus is simply something copied from a 
post of someone from SSS, in order to counter it. Use your 
judgement to decide who wrote what =P

////////
8-Items
\\\\\\\\
Here are the items that could be used by Roy. This tells you 
the best way to use them.

FOOD*Eat it to recover a little health
MAXIM TOMATO*Eat it to recover 50 health
HEART CONTAINER*Eat it to recover 100 health
RAY GUN*Fires greene energy shots. This has 16 ammo. I 
generally just keep shooting my enemy back, until they're 
off the stage. Keep track of how much ammo you have, 
otherwise you might run out, and have the enemy come kill 
you while you're clicking your gun. When you're done with 
it, throw it at the enemy.
FIRE FLOWER*Shoots a constant stream of fire* Get close to 
the enemy, and start hitting them with it. When they go out 
of range, move a bit closer and keep firing until it runs 
out. This is good to use when the enemy is up against a 
wall, or off of an edge.Throw when done with it.
SUPER SCOPE*Fires balls of energy. This can be charged up by 
holding A. If the enemy is close, I rapidly hit A to deal 
damage, and push them back. If they're far away, I charge up 
a large shot to hit them with. Only enough ammo for 3 fully 
charged shots. Throw when done with it.
STAR ROD*A weapon that fires a projectile star when you use 
a smash attack. When you smash with this, Roy will hit with 
his sword, then this. I generally just keep the enemy back 
with the stars, and hopefully push them off the stage. This 
has 16 ammo. Throw when done with it.
LIP'S STICK*This is a weapon that will sprout a flower on 
the enemy's head when they are hit with it. The best 
strategy for this is to simply throw it at the enemy, to get 
a flower on them. If you have a flower on your head, you 
take 1 damage per second.
BEAM SWORD*This is an excellent weapon. Dashing at the enemy 
and using an attack will produce a long range attack that 
hits them back and does decent damage. Hit them to the edge, 
then smash them with it. When they're trying to come back, 
throw it at them, and they will fly away ^_^
HOMERUN BAT*This is by far my favourite weapon. The smash 
attack with it is a one hit KO. I just make a little 
distance between myself and the enemy, and smash them. Keep 
trying to smash. Even if you take 100 damage before smashing 
them out, it's worth it, because they're dead and you aren't 
:)
FAN*This item is a lot more useful than it seems. When 
tossed at the enemy, they fly straight up. This is good to 
do when the enemy is high in the air, as it has a good 
chance of sending them off the top of the screen. The normal 
attack can be executed very rapidly. Also, the smash attack 
with it will break a shield in one hit, which you can follow 
up with a fully charged Flare Blade
HAMMER*This beauty will have you running around like a mad-
man, swinging a massive hammer over your head. Seek out the 
enemy, and smash them out of the arena! Be wary though, as 
there is a chance of the head of the hammer falling off. If 
this happens, avoid the enemy, as you are completely 
useless, swinging a stick around that doesn't hit people.
GREEN SHELL*This will slide along the ground in the 
direction that it is hit or thrown. Use a smash attack on it 
to hit a far away enemy hard. Throwing it works too.
RED SHELL*Same deal as the green shell, except that it 
doesn't die. This one seeks out the closest player, and hits 
them. This can hurt you as well, but Roy can take advantage 
of this. Use your Counter, and it will send the shell back 
to attack a different player ^_^
FLIPPER*Ugh, I find this thing annoying and stupid. When you 
throw it, it will sit in the air, and bat back any one that 
hits it. Since it can hit you, I think it's really 
dumb......the only good use for this is to stick it on an 
edge that an enemy is trying to get back to....it makes it 
difficult to do so.
FREEZIE*Great item! Throw this at the enemy to send them 
flying into the air, encased in a block of ice! Position 
yourself where it's going to land, and start charging your 
flare blade. When they come out, release it. This is also 
good to throw at someone who is high on the screen, as it 
will send them off the top.
MR. SATURN*A funny little guy that will walk across the 
stage aimlessly.Good to throw at your enemy, as it will 
bounce back, and you can grab it and throw it again.
POKE BALL*When thrown, a random pokemon will come out of 
this. This is a very good item. Whenever you see one, always 
go for it, as you can never go wrong.Throwing it at the 
enemy is always good too (unless it's Fox or Falco, as they 
can reflect it, and make it their own).
BOB-OMB*This little guy will sit still for a few seconds, 
then walk along the stage. Anyone who touches it while it's 
walking will be blasted, and go flying. If you can get to it 
before it starts walking, grab it and throw it at the enemy. 
If not, just stand on the opposite side of it from the 
enemy, and it might walk into them.
MOTION-SENSOR BOMB*This will stick to any surface, and 
explode when someone touches it. Throw it at the enemy, and 
remember where it landed. Try to stay on the opposite side 
of your enemy, and hopefully they'll step on it.
SUPER MUSHROOM*This item makes you twice your normal size 
when you touch it! Take advantage of this, by using your 
forward+a smash over and over. Roy's sword will be 
ridiculously long, and they won't be able to get anywhere 
near you.
POISON MUSHROOM*This will reduce you to half your normal 
size.....you'll fly very far when hit...just dodge the enemy 
until you regrow to normal size.
STARMAN*This item will make you invincible when you touch 
it. Take this opportunity to own your opponent left and 
right with any attack you damn well please ^_^
PARASOL*A stupid umbrella that does crappy damage....and you 
can't even throw it far, because it just catches the air, 
and falls slowly....the only good thing about this would be 
that when holding it, you fall nice and slowly, which could 
help you get back to the level.
WARP STAR*A great item, that sends you flying up, and 
smashing back down. You can control the lateral movement of 
yourself, by pressing left or right on the analog stick. Aim 
to hit the enemy, and you'll send them flying.
METAL BOX*Makes you temporarily made of metal. This makes 
you jump lower, fall faster, and not go anywhere at all when 
attacked. Stay away from the edges when this is in effect.
BUNNY HOOD*A cool item that makes Roy look oh-so cute with 
bunny ears ^-^ You'll run twice as fast, and jump twice as 
high. Cool!
SCREW ATTACK*When you hold this, your jumps will have you spinning 
around, and will function like Samus' Up+B move. The best this to do 
with this, is get near the enemy, and jump. They'll get caught in your 
spinning. Do your double jump to take them even higher, then immediately 
do Blazer, to send them up, and hopefully off the top. 
AlphaZ44550@aol.com has informed me of something I overlooked. If the 
opponent is off the level, and you throw the screw attack at them, 
they'll be pretty much screwed...get it? ahah, ah....*cough*

BARREL CANNON*A big barrel with an arrow on it....when you 
throw it, it will roll down the stage, and when it touches 
someone, they'll get stuck in it. They then have to hit A to 
get fired out, hoepfully in the right direction....Don't use 
this unless the enemy is a fair distance away, because it's 
really heavy, and leaves you open.
CLOAKING DEVICE*This makes you pretty much invisible. This 
doesn't really do anything to computer opponents, but it 
will confound a human opponent. The best thing about it, is 
that you take no damage while invisible! Go for this 
whenever possible.

9-Trophy Descriptions
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Roy:The son of the lord of Pharae Principality, Roy was 
studying in Ostia when the Kingdom og Bern invaded League of 
Lycia. His father fell ill at this time, so Roy assumed 
leadership position of Pharae's armies. After his fateful 
meeting with the Princess Guinevere, his destiny became 
inexctricably linked with the fate of the entire continent.

Fire Emblem
Japan Only

Roy(smash)Red:While Roy's moves are well balanced, he's a 
little on the slow side, and doesn't excel at midair combat. 
His blade, the Sword of Seals gives him excellent reach, and 
makes his Double-Edge Dance slightly different than Marth's 
Dancing Blade. When it's fully charged, Roy's destructive 
Flare Blade delivers an instant KO.

B:Flare Blade
Smash B:Double-Edge Dance

Roy(smash)Blue:Roy's blade is different than Marth's; he 
does the most damage hitting with the center of his sword. 
So, a fearless advance into the arms of his for is Roy's 
best bet. Blazer is a bit slower than Marth's Dolphin Slash, 
but it's still a might attack that sets anyone is striker 
aflame. Roy's attack after using Counter differs slightly 
from Marth's.

Up & B:Blazer
Down & B:Counter

///////////////////
10-One Player Modes
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

_______
Classic
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Classic is a mode where you fight 7 battles against random 
opponents, and one Boss at the end. There are 3 bonus games 
amidst these battles as well.

Battle 1:You fight one random opponent here. Wait for them 
to come to you, and nail em with a forward+A smash. Keep 
doing this over and over. Even on Normal or higher, they 
shouldn't be able to do much of anything to you.

Battle 2:This is a team battle. You'll get one random 
partner, and you'll be fighting 2 random enemies. Again, 
just wait for them to come to you, and hit them with a 
forward+A smash. Try to keep yourself on the same side of 
both opponents. That is, try not to be in between the 
enemies.

Bonus 1:Break The Targets. See Break The Targets Section.

Battle 3:Same as Battle 1.

Battle 4:Wheeeee! In this battle, you get 2 random partners, 
to help you take out a random GIANT enemy! This is fun 
stuff! Go and get in his face! I like to use a forward, 
forward, up, down Double Edge Dance, as it racks up damage 
nicely, and they're so large that they're really easy to 
hit! When they have a fair amount of damage, over 100 or so, 
use your forward+A smash, or Flare Blade to KO them.

Bonus 2:In this bonus, you need to guide to trophies that 
fall into the cone in the middle. This is easy, and fun too 
^_^ When you see one, jump up and use your up+A in mid-air, 
and usually it will go right above the cone. No effort 
required! If it's too far away, it might require 2 of these 
attacks, but nothing spectacular.

Battle 5:Same as Battle 1.

Battle 6:In this battle you have to fight 10 of the same 
randomly selecter opponent. These enemies are extremely 
light, and will die to a blazer, or any smash, or Flare 
Blade in just one hit! Fun stuff :)

Bonus 3:Race to the finish! Your goal here is to make it as 
far as possible before the time runs out. Always make sure 
that you're dashing, and don't jump unnecessarily. When you 
get to the fork, take the bottom. You can take your time 
down there, and still make it to the final door. If you 
don't think you're gonna make it, you can always stop and 
the 3rd or 2nd last door, for a decent amount of points.

Battle 7:Metal melee! In this battle you will fight a 
randomly selecter metal opponent! This is really really 
easy....Treat this like any normal battle, and just keep 
using your forward smash. They can't take too many of these, 
and they can't recover worth crap.

Boss Battle:Master Hand! This battle is quite easy...Just 
use your up+A smash over and over. When he's about to 
attack, jump and do a mid-air dodge. If he's coming from the 
background, and going to slam you, hold up your shield when 
he's just about there. This is very very easy. If you're 
playing on Normal or higher, and get through to this batttle 
without using a continue, and do it fairly fast, Master 
Hand's counterpart, Crazy Hand will join the battle after 
Master Hand is below half HP. Take out master hand, then go 
beat down Crazy Hand the same you did for Master. Simple 
really.


NOTE:I highly recommend that if you're trying to get the No 
Damage Clear bonus, use Roy. I got it while going through 
Classic, without even trying. I already had the bonus, and 
at the moment I was just going for coins. Seriously, it's 
very easy. On very easy, a forward+A smash is usually all 
you'll need. For the multi man battle, Blazer is your best 
bet. In the target test and race to the finish, just finish 
right away. No sense in taking damage here, and screwing 
yourself over. For the Master Hand, do one attack (up+A 
smash works well), then retreat, and dodge has attack (I 
prefer mid-air dodges). Really, this is quite simple. Good 
luck ^_^

_________
Adventure
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Adventure is a mode where you go through stages, for each 
character. The themes are quite nice, and all in all, this 
is a very easy mode (though not as easy as classic ^_^).

Stage 1:Mushroom Kingdom:Easy. Just walk through the level, 
killing or avoiding Goombas and Koopas along the way. A 
little over halfway you'll fight a team of Yoshis. These 
will die extremely quick to Blazer. Now just make your way 
to the end of the level.
Fight:Mario and Peach:Siiimple. Just keep using your 
forward+A smash over and over. They won't be able to get 
anywhere near you.
NOTE:If you finish the first section of Mushroom Kingdom 
with the 2nd second digit being a 2, you'll fight Luigi 
rather than Mario. Just as easy.

Stage 2:Kongo Jungle:
Fight:Tiny DKs:In this match you fight 2 tiny DKs.....your 
forward+A smash will make short work of them.
Fight:Giant DK:Get onto the top middle platform, and just 
keep using your forward+A smash over and over. The damage 
will build up, and he'll die quite quickly.

Stage 3:Underground Maze:This is really easy....there are 6 
possible exits. 1 of them is real, and the other 5 are Link 
Battles. If you're on Normal or below, you might as well 
fight Link, because he's easy as hell. If you're going for 
the Crazy Hand trophy, I suggest skipping over any battles, 
but jumping completely over the platform. You'll know it's a 
battle when there is a Master Sword in the middle. The exit 
will be designated by a Triforce. There are 2 possible exits 
in the right hand side of the main cavern, and 4 on the 
right. These are easy to find. Be wary of Like Likes..these 
guys will eat you up, and can be very annoying on higher 
difficulties.
Fight:Zelda:Simple.....just use standard one on one tactics; 
forward+A over and over.

Stage 4:Brinstar:
Fight:Samus:Again, forward+A will make short work of 
Samus...once the lava is up, she'll die very easily, because 
she seems to think that it isn't really there.....yay ^_^
Escape from Brinstar:Uh oh....the planet you're on is about 
to explode....I can't see that being a good thing.....make 
your way up the platforms until you get to the top. This is 
really easy. Most often, a double jump will suffice to get 
to the next platform, but there are one or two gaps that 
will require Blazer. There's also a trophy in here 
someplace...might as well pick it up ^_^

Stage 5:Green Greens:
Fight:Kirby:This guy will often die in just one hit from 
forward+A smash. If not, keep at him, and he'll be toast 
quite quickly.
Fight:Kirby Team:You fight 15 random Kirbies, each with a 
different disguise. Blazer will own them like nothing. Feel 
free to use it liberally.
Optional Fight:Giant Kirby:If you beat Kirby, and the Kirby 
Team in a combined total of less than 1 minute, you'll fight 
Giant Kirby. Fight him just as you'd fight Kirby.

Stage 6:Corneria:
Fight:Fox:At the beginning, he won't even move. Walk up to 
him and smash him. Now he'll come at you. Smash him again, 
and walk to the edge he just flew off. If he comes back, 
smash him once more. If he ends up on top of the Great Fox's 
gun, just wait. As soon as it fired, he's a goner.
Fight:Fox or Falco:You'll fight either Fox or Falco here, 
randomly. This time, he'll be more eager to fight. Right at 
the beginning, charge up a forward+A smash, and hit him when 
he comes at you. Now just keep nailing him with 
these...he'll die quickly, especially with his wingmates 
shooting at him!

Stage 7:Pokemon Stadium:
Fight:Pokemon Team:You'll fight 12 random pokemon, picked 
between Pikachu, Pichu, and Jigglypuff. On lower 
difficulties, you can just smash the out easily. On Normal 
or higher, it might be a little harder, because of all of 
the Thunder coming at you.....go after pokeballs always, and 
you should make it through.

Stage 8:F-ZERO Grand Prix:In this mode, you just have to get 
to the end alive. Just dash, and when you see the 
exclamation mark, hop onto the nearest pink platform. After 
the gaps witht he pink platforms, you can stand on the 
track, and the racers will ramp over you. Easy stuff ^_^
Fight:Captain Falcon:Fight him just like you'd fight anyone 
else; forward+A smash. Make sure to be on your toes though, 
as his Raptor Boost can catch you offguard, and that will 
set you up for a combo, or a Falcon Dive.

Stage 9:Onett:
Fight:Team Ness:Here you have to fight 3 Nesses. On higher 
difficulties, these guys can be really really annoying. I 
like to stand on the power wires on the right side of the 
level, and just smash whomever comes near me. Once they're 
past 60% or so, charge up a Flare Blade, and let loose when 
anyone comes near you.

Stage 10:Icicle Mountain:All you need to do here is keep up 
with the level...if you need help with doing this, I suggest 
you taking up an easier hobby, such a knitting. The only 
thing to be wary of is falling off of the top of the screen. 
This will happen if you try to take things too fast. At the 
end, you have to fight 2 Ice Climbers. These guys will die 
to one forward+A smash on anything below Normal. On Normal 
and higher, I suggest you bring a Freezie with you through 
the level, and throw it at one of the ice climbers when you 
reach them. This will make things easier....picking up a 
pokeball along the way is smart too, but those are harder to 
find.

Stage 11:Battlefield:
Fight:Fighting Wire-Frame Team:These guys are ridiculously 
easy.....just keep using Blazer, and they'll be done in no 
time at all.
Fight:Metal Bros:Really easy...just keep using your 
forward+A smash over and over....really, that's all...on 
higher diffuculties, it'll take a lot of hits, but it's 
still the same strategy.

Stage 12:Final Destination
Fight:Bowser:This guy won't be a pushover like every other 
one on one opponent you've fought. This guy will take a 
beating before he dies. A good strategy is to start off with 
a few Double Edge Dances. I like forward, forward, up, down. 
Then you can smash him a few times, then charge up a flare 
blade while he's trying to recover. When he comes back, nail 
him, and he should die.
Optional Fight:Giga Bowser:*shudder* This guy isn't fun at 
all. He's twice as large as Bowser, and twice as ugly as me. 
Roy however, is quite small.......hold down, and keep press 
A...he will have a very hard time hitting you, and you'll 
keep dealing damage! When he's at 200% or so, smash him off, 
and then edge guard to the best of your ability.

________
All-Star
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Gawd this mode is easy....it's unlocked once you have every 
character....it pits you against them one by one, until 
you've defeated all of them....all you need to do is 
forward+A smash over and over and over.....the final match 
is against 25 Game&Watches...Blazer makes them dead very 
quick. Yay ^_^
Honestly, I don't have anything else to say about this 
mode...even on Hard, this is quite simple to do, especially 
with the 3 Heart Containers you're given....good luck!


**TIP** If you're going for high scores in Classic, 
Adventure, or All Star mode, and you have no sense of fair 
play, try this. Put the difficulty to Very Easy and set the 
stock to five. In the first match, just sit around holding 
R, continually breaking your shield over and over. Do this 
until about 20 seconds are left, then finish. For Adventure, 
you can just wait in a vacant area, but for Classic or 
Adventure, keep trying over and over until you get Hyrule 
Temple, that way, the opponent won't disturb you. The aim of 
this is to get a negative score. If you do, the game won't 
know what to think, and will give you 999,999,999 points!! 
Now you can finish the rest like regular, and then go drool 
over your mega score, and dazzle your friends! ^_^

___________
Event Match
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Event Match is a mode which has you completing certain 
objectives in a level...not necessarily just killing 
everything you see. I'm gonna walk you through every Event 
that Roy can participate it ^_^

Event 3:Bomb-Fest:You need to kill Samus and Link...the only 
items will be explosives. Grab any items you see, and chuck 
them at the enemies. This level will be over before you know 
it!

Event 4:Dino-wrangling:It's you against a Giant Yoshi! You 
have 3 lives, so this is really really easy. Just forward+A 
smash at every opportunity. Often he'll die on his own by 
using an Egg Roll, or Yoshi Bomb. Easy.

Event 6:Kirbys on Parade:You with one life, vs 3 tiny 
Kirbies with 2 lives apiece. Blazer will kill them in one 
hit, so I suggest you use it......this will be over before 
it begins.

Event 7:Pokémon Battle:You vs Pikachu, witht the only items 
being pokeballs. You can't physically harm Pikachu, so just 
grab any pokeballs you see, and throw them down. Easy match.

Event 8:Hot Date on Brinstar:You vs Samus, each with 3 
lives. You both strat with more than 100% damage done to 
you. One forward+A smash is all it takes to kill Samus each 
time, so do that, and this will be a piece of cake.

Event 9:Hide 'n' Sheik:You vs 2 Zeldas....with a catch. The 
KO only counts on them, if you KO them while they are in 
Sheik form. Do some Double Edge Dances to build up damage, 
then when they transform, use forward+A smash to kill them.

Event 10:All-Star Match 1:You against Mario, DK, Yoshi, 
Peach, and Bowser, one at a time. You have 2 lives. Each of 
these guys will die to one or 2 forward+A smashes...have at 
them!

Event 11:King of the Mountain:This level is the epitome of 
easy. You're on Infinite Glacier, with 2 Ice Climbers after 
you. All you need to do is survive for 1 minute and 3 
seconds. Just stay away from them, or better yet, use your 
forward+A smash to kill them!

Event 12:Seconds, Anyone?:One forward+A smash will do away 
with Falcon, in less than 2 seconds, giving you plenty of 
time to spare ^_^

Event 14:Trophy Tussle 1:This is a fight between you and 3 
random computer opponents. Everyone has 2 stock. You're 
fighting on top of a giant Goomba! One forward+A smash will 
take anyone out of you charge it a little bit. This is a 
really easy event, and you get the Goomba trophy for 
winning.

Event 15:Girl Power:This event has you pitted against Samus 
Peach and Zelda. You are tiny for this. Everyone has 2 
stock. Treat this like any other1 on 3 match. Don't get 
surrounded, and use forward+A smash liberally. If you're on 
the top platform with a girl that has high damage, use 
Blazer for a kill. Hang in there, and this should be fairly 
easy.

Event 20:All-Star Match 2:It's you against Samus, Link, 
Zelda, Falcon, and Fox, one at a time. You have 2 stock. 
These guys die pretty quickly, so just forward+A smash, and 
be done with them. Falcon is quick, so you have to be on 
your toes....Counter works well against his Raptor Boost.

Event 21:Ice Breaker:You vs 2 Ice Climbers....with a twist. 
You need to KO both Nanas but keep the Popos alive -_-;. The 
best thing to do is go to the first one, and grab. If you 
get Nana, toss left, and smash her off the stage. If you get 
popo, toss up, and then grab Nana, toss left, and smash off. 
Repeat the same strategy for the 2nd pair. Make sure not to 
dawdle though, as you only get one minute to complete this.

Event 22:Super Mario 128:You against 128(!!) Tiny Marios. 
Blazer is an easy way to kill these guys....make sure you 
don't die though...it's easier than you think ~_~

Event 23:Slippy's Invention:You against Fox and Falco, who 
are both invisible...this is just like any other 1 on 2 
match. Keep on forward+A smashing. They're relatively easy 
to see, so this shouldn't be a problem.

Event 24:The Yoshi Herd:You vs 30 Yoshis. You have to defeat 
them in 2 minutes or less. Blazer will kill each one of them 
in one hit. This should be easy. Be careful about the hold 
in the middle though....if you open it with Blazer, make 
sure you don't fall down it.

Event 26:Trophy Tussle 2:This event pits you against 3 
random computer foes. Everyone has 2 stock. You're fighting 
on top of a huge Entei!(god he's gorgeous)Ahem, one CPU 
player will always sit on the left side, and do nothing 
until you approach them. Take out the other 2 enemies first. 
Your forward+A smash will be useful, as will Flare Blade, 
and Double Edge Dance. Once they're done, Get close enough 
to the guy on the left to forward+A smash him, but not close 
enough to alert him. You can smash him, then just edge guard 
with Flare Blade. When he comes back, treat him like any 
other single opponent; forward+A smash.

Event 28:Puffballs Unite!:You against a bunch of Kirbies, 
each with a different ability....this is easy. One Blazer 
will usually kill one. If not, the 2nd one will for sure. 
Piece o' cake ;)

Event 30:All-Star Match 3:You vs Kirby, Pikachu, Ness, and 
Ice Climbers, one at a time. You have 2 lives. These guys 
are a little more intelligent, and harder to knock off than 
previous "All-Stars". Forward+A smashes are still the key 
though, as well as edge guarding with Flare Blade. Also 
remember that Rolling Dodges are your friend ^_^

Event 31:Mario Bros. Madness:To be quite honest, I don't 
know how this works....it's not based on KOs..I think it's a 
bonus match...so fight with style ;) A lot of KOs will get 
you the win...a good tip is to hold either A or B through 
the whole match, as that willget you 4000 points right 
there.....good luck ^_^

Event 37:Legendary Pokémon:This event pits you against 4 
Wireframes and a Jigglypuff. And the Wireframes are Giant! 
Good god! The catch,is that the only items are pokeballs, 
and the only pokemon that come out are legendary! Make sure 
you get them before Jigglypuff does, and this will be easy.

Event 38:Super Mario Bros 2:This pits you against Peach, 
Mario and Luigi. Everyone has 2 stock. The best way to 
handle this, is to get on one side, so that no one is behind 
you, and then just act like you're edge guarding. If you get 
surrounded, Rolling Dodges are a great help. Blazer is also 
good to get out of a sticky situation. Once you're down to 2 
enemies, it becomes really easy, and once there's only one 
left, it's all over. Forward+A smash is very useful.

Event 40:All-Star Match 4:You against Marth, Luigi, 
Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, and Game&Watch, one at a time. You have 
2 lives. This battle can be a bit tricky....for Marth, wait 
until he comes to you, and hit him with a forward+A smash. 
Rolling Dodges are great, because you can just roll behind 
him, and smash again. This is how I beat him, taking little 
damage. Luigi can be handles in the same manner. Watch out 
for the green missile, as that is executed quite quickly. 
Jigglypuff is ridiculously simple. Do one smash for about 
20%, then jump up on Squirtle's head. Start charging up a 
Flare Blade, and when jiggly comes to investigate, let 'er 
rip.RIP. Mewtwo can be dealt with in the same manner as 
Marth. Mewtwo is a really stupid opponent, and shouldn't be 
able to hit you at all. Game&Watch can be killed in the same 
was you killed Mewtwo, but he'll get in more 
attacks....fortunately, 2 or 3 smashes is all poor little 
G&W can handle.

Event 44:Mewtwo Strikes!:You vs Mewtwo and Zelda. Mewtwo 
won't appear until 15 seconds has gone by, so just dodge 
Zelda. Killing her only fails the event. When Mewtwo 
appears, be ready with a charged up forward+A smash. It 
starts on the left platform. After this, just focus on 
smashing it, and avoiding Zelda. Perhaps the first hard 
event you'll fight. Good luck!

Event 46:Fire Emblem Pride:My god this event is easy....I 
just played it to find out a good strategy for the guide, 
and beat it without losing a life, at 73% at the end. You 
are up against Roy and Marth. Ooh, a mirror match! Kinky ^_~ 
All you need to do is stand there, and when one gets close, 
start to charge a forward+A smash. When he comes in range, 
release it. Lather, rinse, and repeat. Seriously, it's 
nothing more than this. If you end up between them, roll to 
the side, and smash. Simple.

Event 47:Trophy Tussle 3:A battle atop Majora's Mask, 
against 3 randomly selecter computer opponents. Everyone has 
3 lives. This event is a bitch, because it isn't _AT ALL_ 
suited for forward+A smashes. I beat this by pure luck, 
using Blazer over and over. I suggest you do the same. If 
anyone has a better strategy, feel free to email me ^_^

Event 48:Pikachu and Pichu:These Pokémon are pals...but not 
with you! XD That cracks me up! Heh...anyhow, the strategy. 
This event is dumb....I don't like it at all, and I've only 
beaten it once. Use your forward+A smash over and over, 
hoping to connect. You only need to kill the 2 Pichus once, 
and you have 2 lives, but Pikachu is just so annoying, and 
the Pichus keep sending Thunder Jolts my way.....rack up as 
much damage as possible. When you die, get in a highly 
charged forward+A smash or Flare Blade, and hope they die. 
If not, maybe you'll get a lucky pokeball....*shrug*. Sorry, 
I really suck at this one.

Event 49:All-Star Match Deluxe:You against Dr Mario, Falco, 
Ganondorf, Roy, Young Link, and Pichu! Dear god!! You only 
get 2 bloody lives, and you have to complete this stupid 
task in a mere 4 minutes. ;_; For Dr Mario, start charding 
up a Flare Blade about 0.3 seconds into the match. When Dr 
Mario gets to you, let it go. This is an easy 36% every 
time. Now just forward+A smash him to death. Not -too- hard. 
Falco is all forward+A smashing, but he's really quick, so 
you need to be too....not fun. Pichu is simple. Forward+A 
smashes will do away with him quickly. Young Link will die 
the same way as Pichu, without much resistance. Now comes 
Roy. You want to get to him with 2 lives left. Deal as much 
damage as possible to him before you die. Forward+A smashes 
combined with Rolling Dodges are the way to go. You'll 
probably die to him. When you come back, get in a good hit, 
and then hope to finish him off before your damage gets too 
high....finally, we have Ganondorf. This guy doesn't mess 
around. You need to dodge as much as possible, and wait 
until you can catch offguard, then slam with a forward+A 
smash. Once you do that, catch up with him, and get him in a 
smash loop. Once he's off, he's simple to edge guard with 
Flare Blade.

Event 50:Final Destination Match:Treat this just like the 
Master Hand at the end of Classic mode and you'll do fine. 
It's no trouble at all dodging their attacks, and Roy's up+A 
smash does decent damage. Once one is gone, the other is 
toast. If you ask me, this event is pretty damn easy.

Event 51:The Showdown:Dun dun dun! All your hard work has 
paid off, and now you're at the final showdown! It's you 
against Ganondorf, Mewtwo and *drumroll* GIGA BOWSER! This 
guy is twice as large as regular Bowser, and twice as ugly 
as myself. Everyone has 3 lives. Forward+A is definately the 
way to go. Keep doing this over and over, using a Rolling 
Dodge when necessary. Once Giga Bowser is dead, the other 2 
are easy. Forward+A smashes will wear them down eventually. 
If you happen across a good item like a superscope or a 
pokeball, excellent, make it even easier. Edge guard with 
Flare Blade, and you can beat them down without too much 
trouble ^_^

Break The Targets
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
I'll just give you my best strategy for getting a good time 
on Roy's BtT.

1:Jump up and do an up+A in mid-air to the first target. 
Hold right, and do your 2nd jump onto the platform. When 
you're about to land, do a down+A to hit the one below you.
2:Use forward+B to hit the 2 targets beside you.
3:Double jump, and use Blazer to land on the small platform 
above you, hitting the target on it.
4:Do a small jump to land on the platform to your left, then 
jump up and forward+A the target in the air. Hold left and 
do your 2nd jump. Forward+B the next 2 targets, then fall 
down and Blazer the last 2.

Homerun Contest
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Grab the bat, and run up to the bag. Jump once, and at the 
peak of your jump, press
Z to drop the bat. Now press down+a to spike the bag down. 
Do three more of these drop/
spike combos, remembering to grab the bat in mid-air in 
between combos. Now as soon as
you can, press and hold B. You need to do a fully charged 
Flare Blade to the bag (you'll
know you did it by the explosion, and the 50% damage you'll 
deal to the bag). You need
to be very quick to do this. Good luck ^_^
GOAL=2200+

NOTE:If you'd like to add a few hundred feet to this, and 
are good at L-Cancels, try adding in a forward+B at the 
beginning for 5%. It's quite possible to make it in time, 
and it gives you that extra distance. Go for it! ^_^ If 
you're really insanely good, instead of adding a forward+B, 
just do 5 drop/spike combos....I personally haven't done 
this, but it would get you well over 3000 feet.......good 
luck! *shudder*


w00t, I got over 3000 with Roy yesterday! All you need to do 
is four bat drops, then catch the bat in mid-air again, jump 
over the bag, and drop the bat so that the bag flies left. 
As soon as you let go of the bat, start charging Flare 
Blade. If the bag is at at least 103% it will come back, and 
land right in front of you, so that you can blast it! Yay :) 
This is really simple :)

Multi-Man Melee
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
------------
10-Man Melee
------------
Roy's Blazer will make short works of these foes....self-
explanatory.

-------------
100-Man Melee
-------------
Same idea as 10 Man Melee........

--------------
3-Minute Melee
--------------
Just kill the enemies for 3 minutes...this should play out 
almost exactly like the 100-Man Melee match, but these guys 
are easier.

---------------
15-Minute Melee
---------------
This is tough...if you kill enemies left and right, the 
difficulty will become too high for you to handle for 15 
minutes...I suggest just dodging the dumb enemies. This can 
get really frustrating, when you hit a bob-omb with 15 
seconds left....:( Good luck.

-------------
Endless Melee
-------------
Err....Iono what to tell ya. Just kill as many guys as 
possible......Blazer is a good bet, and Rolling Dodges will 
be very useful when the enemies get harder...good luck!

-----------
Cruel Melee
-----------
*shudder* These are mega tough enemies....my high score is 7 
:( Just use Blazer, and hope they die. These guys will send 
you flying out of the arena faster than you can think. In 
cruel melee, you get the Mr. Resetti trophy if you can KO 5 
enemies. Roy is generally the best character for this, as 
his Blazer is one of the few attacks that can kill the cruel 
wire-frames in one hit, if done correctly.

Training
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This is where you can hone your skills, or try out new 
strategies. This is a good place to familiarize yourself 
with all of the items, or figure out what you can and cannot 
do (for example, with some extensive testing, I have found 
that Roy can indeed make it from the top right of Hyrule 
Temple to the bottom right, with some nifty maneuvering. Try 
it!). As a matter of fact, here is a list of fun things to 
try to do! I've done all of these, so don't think anything 
is impossible!

-Make it from the top-right of Hyrule Temple, to the bottom 
right, without items.
-Do 75% damage to an enemy in one hit.
-Perform an 8 hit combo.
-Hit a dummy computer opponent that is at 999% with a smash 
hit from the home-run bat, and have them survive.

Strategies
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Would you like to know some of my strategies....my deepest 
darkest secrets...? Well then you've come to the right place 
^_^ After reading this, you'll not only be better overall, 
but you'll be able to kick my ass, because you'll know what 
I'm gonna do before I do it!

One on One:One on One matches are quite simple for 
Roy....against a CPU opponent, even at level 9, Roy can own 
like no other. His forward+A smash has stellar range, and 
the computer shouldn't even be able to get near you. If a 
projectile comes your way, Counter is the way to go. Except 
for Fox's pesky laser...that should be dealt with by 
punishment of Double Edge Dance flogging =D Roy's Rolling 
Dodges are extremely useful when fighting a computer 
opponent, as they will continue to attack thin air, while 
you smash them with forward+A, or Flare Blade. 
Hmmmm....let's get into some strategies for Special Melees.

Camera Mode:Errrr..you can take some pretty nice pictures 
with Roy ^^ I personally like a fully charged Flare Blade or 
a Blazer ^_^

Stamina Mode:This mode should be treated just like any other 
match. Your forward+A smash does good damage, and should 
kill them soon enough.

Super Sudden Death:Jeezums...Roy isn't very good in this 
mode...if you can get beneath them, do a Blazer...otherwise, 
your best bet would either be a forward+A smash, or a 
dashing attack. Good luck.

Giant Melee:Omg..Roy is like, god when he's this large. His 
forward+A smash has massive range. Abuse this move even more 
than you did before!

Tiny Melee:Hmmmm....very much reduction of range...this puts 
you at a slight disadvantage...I suggest you use Double Edge 
Dance a lot, as well as Counter, because projectiles become 
a lot more abundant in this mode.

Invisible Melee:This might as well just be a regular 
match....my only suggestion is to do more Rolling Dodges, as 
some humans can be confounded by this ^_^

Fixed-Camera Mode:Err....this is just a regular 
match....whee.

Single-Button Mode:w00t! Roy owns this mode! Pretty much all 
projectiles are removed! Now you can completely own with 
your forward+A smash! w00t w00t!

Lightning Melee:This is pretty much just a regular 
match...though it's harder to charge things up, because they 
run out quicker, and people run at you faster etc....Rolling 
Dodges are very good, as well as Double Edge Dance.

Slo-Mo Melee:You can see pretty much everything coming, so 
there really isn't any excuse for taking much 
damage...forward+A smash is great, and if you can get them 
to the edge, there's no way they'll make it past a Slow Mo 
edge guarding Roy with a charging Flare Blade ^_^

______
Stages
ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Oooh.....29 stages....there sure is a lot to learn! Keep 
reading if you'd like to learn how to use each level to your 
advantage with Roy ^_^

Icicle Mountain:This level is just a big death trap, 
inspired from the classic NES title Ice Climbers. The level 
is always scrolling either up or down. It can be going 
either fast or slow. When it's going slow, you need to seek 
out the enemy, and smash them, or Double Edge Dance. The 
up+A smash is a good move to use on this level, as it may 
pop them up off the top of the screen. When the level picks 
up speed, just focus on staying alive. Roy can deal some 
good damage with Blazer while keeping up, if you plan things 
right.

Princess Peach's Castle:This is a stage inspired by good old 
Princess Peach's Castle in Mario 64. It's easy to ambush 
someone coming over the steeple with a Blazer. On a 
sidenote, every once in a while, a Bullet Bill will come and 
plow into the castle, then explode! Cool! If you're fighting 
a computer opponent, you'll see them move to one side, and 
just sit there until it leaves. This is a good opportunity 
to hit them with a down+A smash (they'll be on a lower part 
of the castle). As always, forward+A smash is very welcome. 
You can jump to the other side of the steeple, and wait for 
them to walk right into it ^_^

Rainbow Cruise:Hehe, this level is a lot of fun. You're 
fighting on the airship from Mario 64's 15th level. On here, 
you should just use standard fighting technique. After a 
little bit, the airship will crash into a platform, and 
"sink". You have to make your way onto the series of 
platforms, and battle there! The level is now scrolling. 
What I do is try to stay ahead of my opponent, and wait for 
them, always ready to smash. Beware of donut blocks, which 
will fall if you stand on them. Also at the end, when you 
loop back to the ship, make sure you don't get stuck when 
the screen scrolls down, and fly off the top (it's really 
embarrassing, trust me ;) ).

Kongo Jungle:A level taken out of Donkey Kong Country, this 
is one of my favourites ^_^ Your forward+A smash can often 
kill a foe in only a few hits, due to the small size of the 
level. Up+A smashes are also useful, when someone is coming 
to drop down on you. Beware of the KlapTrap in the river! 
He'll kill you very fast if you touch him. On a sidenote, 
the music in this level kicks ass! w00t w00t for DK Rap!

Jungle Japes:Another level taken from Donkey Kong Country. 
This level is rather bland IMO...there are more KlapTrap 
coming down the river....I like to sit on either the left or 
right side, and wait for someone to come, then nail them 
with a forward+A smash. The middle is dangerous, because 
they can come at you from above or below. The music 
definately isn't up to Donkey Kong par either.

Great Bay:A kinky level taken from Majora's Mask, involving 
a 40 year old gay elf, and a Turtle with trees growing out 
of his shell. If that doesn't turn you on, I don't know what 
will! Tingle, the aforementioned elf is always hanging from 
a balloon. This balloon acts as a platform until someone 
pops it. The turtle is a good place to fight....that is 
until it decides that it wants to leave, placing you in the 
middle of the bay... I suggest you stay off the turtle, and 
bat your enemies over onto it.I generally just stay on the 
middle platform, and act as if I'm edge guarding. Guys will 
die off the left side of the level with only a few smashes. 
Rolling Dodges are a big help in this level, for dodging 
enemies that like to grab onto the ledge, and attack on 
their way up, or even roll past you.

Hyrule Temple:My ultimate favourite level! This place is 
massive! It's inspired by something or other from Zelda, and 
it looks to be ruins, but I can't quite figure out 
where...oh well, this place is still awesome. You can stand 
pretty much anywhere, and just wait for someone to come walk 
into your forward+A smash. Also, if I'm above someone, I 
like to jump down and down+A them in the air, then L cancel, 
and roll to the side, where I follow up with a forward+A 
smash. Yay ^^ If you're fighting in the bottom section of 
the level, damage levels can reach upwards of 350%(!!) 
because you don't exit the level, you simply fly around like 
a pinball. If your damage gets above this, and you're in a 
Time match, just jump off the edge. Better than your 
opponent getting a KO ^_^

Yoshi's Story:A level taken from....you guessed it, Yoshi's 
Story! This level is really crappy if you ask me...it's 
really small, and really bland, and just reaks of bad 
design. Shyguys are flying around carrying food, so if you 
need a little health, take one out...other than that, jsut 
use standard tactits, for this standard level.

Yoshi's Island:This is Yoshi's good level, taken from Super 
Mario World for SNES. Rolling Dodges are everything in this. 
Dodge, smash, dodge, smash. This technique always works for 
me, whether it's against CPU or human. Throwing items is 
good too, especially when they're up on the hill to the 
right. It'll get bouncing around really good, and well, you 
never know what it might do =D Sitting on the very left of 
the stage is good too, because your forward+A smash can 
reach them when they're walking up the pipe.

Fountain of Dreams:A level taken from the Great Cave 
Offensive of Kirby's SuperStar, this level is basically just 
Yoshi's Story, with a pretty background. Standard techniques 
*yawn*

Green Greens:A stage taken from the very first Kirby game 
for gameboy, this is a lot more fun than Fountain of Dreams. 
The yellow blocks that fills the gaps in the stage are 
destroyed when hit by anything. There are also bomb blocks, 
that you must be wary of, as they will blast you out quite 
quick....a good strategy is to go to the right or left, and 
when they come for you, roll towards the middle, and smash 
them off. Then edge guard with Flare Blade.

Corneria:Another one of my favourite level, taken from Star 
Fox 64, and basically a shrunken version of SSB's Sector Z. 
This level is great for edge guarding, and a lot of fun! 
Smashing is the key as usual, and rolling dodges are quite 
useful. If you can get them cornered against the wall on the 
lower level, do a Double Edge Dance with the 4th hit being 
down+B for some good damage. Watch out for Arwings and 
Wolfen firing pot shots at you and the crew.

Venom:Another level taken from Star Fox 64, this is on the 
Great Fox again, but on the wings, rather than on the main 
body. Again, there are Arwings and Wolfen shooting at you. I 
like to wait on the opposite side of the ship, then 
forward+A smash them, or Blazer. Lol, one thing that I 
learned the hard way, is that when you're in a cave, you 
can't die off the side. I was edge guarding Falco in event 
49, and the bastard just kept bouncing back! After about 
300%, I just used Blazer, but this is something to keep in 
mind.

Flat Zone:Hehe, a cool little level, inspired from an old 
handheld game called Game&Watch. The level is 2D, so 3D Roy 
looks quite out of place :) Fighting is just regular 
tactics, as they can't go far at all on the sides before 
they die. Be sure to watch out for falling tools. These pack 
quite a punch, as I've died on more than one occasion to a 
bucket or a hammer. Occasionally a little fella will come 
and spill some oil on the floor, which will make you slip 
and slide. Not much of a big deal, but a cool effect ^_^

Brinstar:A level based on a planet you visit in Super 
Metroid, this beauty is quite a death trap. Lava will 
frequently rise, so I advise you stay on the top platform. 
The lava hurts a lot, and once you're in, you'll take a few 
hits before you come back, IF you come back. Otherwise, I 
like to stay on the left or right platform, and edge guard. 
Fun stuff :)

Brinstar Depths:An aesthetically amazing level, this was 
taken from Metroid as well. In the background, you'll see a 
large Kraid, a creature who will take a swipe at the entire 
level and rotate it!!1 Awesome! This is a great level! In 
any one on one match, I like to head to the small lone rock 
platform, and just stay there, edge guarding. If he rotates 
while you're there, you can get yourself stuck underneath 
the level, which can be the perfect place to kill time if 
you're in the lead of a Time match. Good luck ^^

Onett:A busy little town from Earthbound for the SNES, this 
is the first city you come across. Occasionally an 
exclamation mark will appear, and a car will zoom across the 
bottom of the level. Make sure not to get hit by this, as it 
has a good chance of killing you. The platforms in the 
middle will sometimes collapse, putting an interesting spin 
on things. Personally, I like sitting on the power wires on 
the right side of the level, and just edge guarding.

Fourside:The second city from Earthbound to make it to SSBM, 
this is the fourth city in the game for SNES. This level 
takes place atop skyscrapers, and a scaffolding that moves. 
Also, every once in a while a UFO will come for you to 
battle on. The surface is very slippery, so be wary. This is 
a great level for just sitting and waiting for people to 
come to you! Beware though, as they have a large skyscraper 
for a vantage point, and can throw items at you easily. Try 
catching them mid-air, then throwing them back! That'll show 
em ;) If you can, try to use your mid-air down+A to smash 
people down the gaps. Often they can't get back up ^_^

Mute City:This is a racetrack taken from the futuristic F-
ZERO circuit. You'll be travelling along the track on a 
platform, periodically stopping, to battle on the track. 
Beware of passing racers, as they can hurt you a lot 
(they're going over 400 kph after all). For this level, I 
just go AWOL, and run around dash-attacking people. It 
doesn't pay to use your forward+A smash here, unless you're 
edge guarding. The pace of this level is very fast, and you 
have to keep up with it.

Big Blue:A really awesome level, where you're fighting atop 
F-ZERO racers! You start on the Falcon Flyer, and can move 
to other racers that are passing below you. Since the racers 
are moving really fast, be careful not to touch the road. 
You'll be left behind. There are platforms that float around 
sometimes. I encourage you to fight on these, as they are 
much safer than the cars. I like the down+A mid-air attacks, 
to smash people right into the track, then get back to the 
cars with a lateral Blazer (hold left/right while doing it). 
Good luck, as this is what the level often comes down to!

Pokémon Stadium:A level inspired by Pokemon. This is a 
stadium that pokemon battles are held in. At first, the 
level is quite simple. Only 2 platforms, and not much 
special about it, other than the video screen in the 
background, that shows battle statistics. Once you wait a 
bit, the level changes to either a water, fire, or earth 
themed level. Kewlio! This is a level for standard tactics. 
Edge Guarding is useful, but if they have good recovery, it 
could be a while before they die, as the actual out of 
bounds area is quite far from the level. An item that lands 
on one of the floating platforms is best grabbed in mid-air, 
rather than jumping up and grabbing it. This can save time, 
and maybe even your life!

Poké Floats:Lol, a crazy level inspired by a ton of 
different pokemon! The CPU really sucks at this level, and 
will SD a lot. Always stay on your toes, and be wary of 
sudden change. If you get on one that looks like it's gonna 
stay for a little bit, hit the enemy with forward smashes, 
and Double Edge Dance. Otherwise, down+A in mid-air, and 
Blazer is always a good bet, when the level is changing. 
Hehehe, isn't Psyduck just soooo cyute!! Heh...Roy isn't the 
greatest for this level with is meager jumping abilities, 
but you should be able to pull it off ;)

Mushroom Kingdom:A level inspired by Super Mario Brothers 1! 
This is a cool level, that brings nostalgia to the air ^^ 
The bricks are destroyed in one hit, and the ? blocks 
produce items. The small gaps are a good place to die with a 
misplaced Blazer, or someone who decides to meteor smash you 
down there, so be wary. Other than that, it's just standard 
edge guarding, forward smashing, Double Edge Dancing fun :)

Mushroom Kingdom II:A level taken from Super Mario Brothers 
2, this level is kinda plain. The 2 gaps are easy to die in, 
but also easy to kill others in (dodging green missiles, and 
skull bashes is fuuuun!). I prefer to stay on one side, and 
just guard the edge. When Birdo comes to peg you off in the 
back of the head with eggs, move to the middle, and use 
rolling and smashing techniques.

Kongo Jungle:A stage from SSB, that is quite bland. The only 
excitement you'll get from this is jumping into the barrel 
cannon floating around the bottom. Something to note is that 
you can up up through the main level, which might save you 
as some point. I just stand on one side or the other 
charging a Flare Blade or forward+A smash. As always, 
rolling is a good idea.

Yoshi's Island:What the...*does a double-take* Is it just 
me, or is the only thing separating this from Yoshi's Story, 
the fact that this level has disappearing clouds...gawd, 
what a boring level... I suggest you smash your foes out to 
the right clouds. They've gotta come back sometime, and 
you'll be waiting as ye loyal edge guarder. Other than that, 
standard...*yawn*

Dream Land:Yet again we have another plain jane level. Other 
than the occasional wind blowing you to the side, this level 
is as basic as it gets. Standard tactics again (bet you're 
getting tired of hearing that ;p)

Battlefield: This is about as plain as they get. One thing 
to note is that from the main platform, you can hit people 
standing on the left and right platforms with your up+A 
smash. This often comes in handy. Standard tactics 
again....*sigh*

Final Destination:This is definately one of my favourite 
levels. It's so simple, and yet so great! This is perfect 
for just sitting back, dodging projectiles, and doing what 
Roy does best;his forward+A smash! That's all you need for 
this level, other than items, and Flare Blade for edge 
guarding. Plus it's got cool music and everything. Yay!

///////////////////
12-Words Of Wisdom
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
These are my final thoughts...and things that you should 
always remember when fighting as Roy:
-forward+A smash is ALWAYS a good idea. Period.
-Blazer is great for tiny enemies, or multi enemy matches.
-If you see an attack coming, or sense it for that matter,
roll past the person, and smash them from behind.
-always edge guard with Flare Blade
-don't be afraid to take risks...they often pay off
-drugs are bad, mmmhay?
-go check out Roy's 33rd sound clip in the sound test! It 
rocks! Yes, the best thing you'll ever do with Roy is listen 
to this! It's one of his victory speeches, and in english it 
means "For those that I must protect, I cannot lose!". 
Awesome, simply awesome!! =D
