Ability/ies See Moveset
Bugzzy is an unlockable newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Mash. He is a Kirby mid-boss that gives the Suplex or Backdrop ability when inhaled, depending on the game.

Bugzzy has powerful attacks with his pincer, and several with his wings. He also has punching and smacking attacks, as well as several kicking moves. For his special moves, especially his down specials, he releases beetles. He lacks speed and jumping height, due to him being a heavyweight.

How to unlock


Bugzzy is an extremely heavy character, giving him a great quality of knockback resistance. Despite his size, Bugzzy has decent recovery. With his Beetle Flight, he can quickly recover with excellent vertical range. Beetles Flight, is a slower, weaker version of this move with more height. Upwards Ram has a quicker, more powerful recovery with less height.

For power, Bugzzy can use either Bugzzy Ram or Bugzzy Fire Ram. Both have excellent power, and when combined with the mid-boss' size, is difficult to miss with. Bugzzy Ram can be charged for more power, making it one of Bugzzy's greatest attacks. A charged Bugzzy Ram also has excellent knockback. Like all of Bugzzy's moves, Bugzzy Ram cannot lead to combos, but its overall power means it is completely usable by itself.

As stated in the above sentence, none of Bugzzy's moves cannot participate in combos. This is due to the fact that Bugzzy's moves are either very slow, or very quick. After using one of his slow moves, Bugzzy will take a lot of frames to return to a state where he can attack again. After using a fast move, Bugzzy will dish out great knockback, meaning his opponent can easily recover before Bugzzy can reach him again.
