  • Forward smash - Anthony punches forwards with his cannon, which releases a small blast of ice.
  • Up smash - Anthony arcs five blasts overhead.
  • Down smash - Aims down and shoots his gun at the ground in front of him. Only hits in front. Low damage and delayed knockback, but freezes the target for a short time. Unique attack that can be followed up by a side smash, a grab or another move. The shot is a projectile.

Special Moves

  • Neutral special - Freeze Gun: Anthony fires a shot from his freeze gun, can freeze opponents at higher percentages.
  • Side special - Plasma Blast:
  • Up special - Ice Platform: Anthony shoots a blast of ice downwards to create a platform. This platform stays for 2 seconds however, and can only carry Anthony's weight. If another character stands on it with Anthony, it breaks. Only one platform can stay out at a time however. And when it's used on ground, it creates a layer on ice on the ground, which can trip opponents on impact and does 5% damage.
  • Down special - Flip Jump: A quick leaping dodge that can also strike enemies on descent.

Final Smash

  • Frozen Zero Laser: Anthony Higgs fires a huge beam of ice aacross the stage. The laser can be angled slightly up or slightly down, and the move will freeze the stage and opponents will be frozen at high percentages.
