A whole new section for Brawl?Awesome!
This thread is gonna be for Ike strats,combos,matchups or whatever.
Lets start with the basics.
**A simple jab.Hold it down when you aren’t near an opponent to throw rapid jabs.
**A jab and a kick.The kick comes out pretty fast and combos.
**Attack,Attack,Attack or hold Attack at close range(16%)
**The combo ends with Ike bringing Ragnell down on top of your opponents head.All 3 hits combo
A powerful tilt with great knockback.Comes out a bit slow so use at a distance so you can cover yourself.
**Pops the enemy in the air when it hits further away from Ike and knocks them back if the enemy is closeup.Comes out at about the same pace as Forward tilt so again give yourself some space or find a good opening.
**Up tilt (up close 9%,in the sword 12%)
**Ike jumps up with the sword sideways to pop the opponent in the air.Comes out pretty fast and ends fast too.This is a nice move to use.
Forward Smash (15%-30%)
Whoa.This has some serious knockback to it!
Ike winds up with Ragnell with a really heavy slash.Be warned though it’s start up is sloooooooow.
In a 1v1 match it may be harder to land but in FFA and teams use this to clean up and steal some kills.
Ike swings Ragnell over his head in an arc hiitting anything above,behind and directly in front of him.Without charging this actually comes out at a decent pace.It does have a lot of recovery though.Like Forward smash this really shines in FFA.Nice on maps like BattleField where someone may be right above you.
**Down Smash(Front swipe 13%-18%,back swipe 16%-22%)
**Ike sweeps his sword in front of him and behind him.It pops the opponent up and back.
**Special:Eruption (HEAT END) (10%-37%)
**Ike plunges his blade into the ground(or…air?)unleashing a pillar of flames.He has super armor when he stabs downward,so use that to your advantage.
**Up+special:Aether(around 19% up close varies otherwise)
**Ike throws Ragnell up flying into the air,jumps up and slams it down.If the opponent is in striking distance Ike will launch them up.How much damage the sword twirls do is dependent on how close you are though.You can also steer Ike forwards and backwards in the air a bit.Use this to catch people that try and move away from the attack or to help you recover.
**Ike enters a stance and any physical attack that hits him prompts a counter attack.The stronger the attack,the stronger the counter
**Ike sweeps across to land a slash.You can press Special again to cancel the attack before you reach your opponent.This move is also pivotal in his recovery as Aether doesn’t have much in the way of horizontal movement.Keep in mind that if this is done in open air you will end up in the Falling state like any other character whiffing an Up+special.
Neutral Air Attack(9%)
Ike makes a semi circular arc below himself.When you land from this move you recover FAST.Covers a lot of space too.Definitely a must for Ike players
Forward Air Attack(13%)
Another Semi circular arc slash from Ike.This time covering the space above and below him slightly.Does decent damage and knocksback.Has to recover on landing though.Watch when you use it!
Back air attack(14%)
Ike faces backwards and slashes his opponent. Fast,strong and little recovery.Definitely definitely a must for Ike players.
Down Air Attack(16%)**
Ike thrusts the ragnell downwards.Comes out decently enough but has recovery once he lands.The blades tip will meteor smash,anywhere else and they pop up.
Great Aether(ERUPTING BURNING FINGERRRRRRRR)(varies)
**Ike tosses his sword at the opponent and combos the hell out of them culminating in a downward slash into an explosion.
Unfortunately this isn’t exactly a guaranteed KO,but it does more damage the more people get caught in it so aim for as many victims as possible.
I only posted the basic of the basic stuff now but still…It may help someone.
Now go forth and fight for your friends.**
