Luigi panic

Luigi in SSBDevastation

Mamma mia! Luigi is a starter character again in Super Smash Bros. Devastation! He appeared for the first time in Mario Bros., in the 1983, so he's fought in the last level of the All-Star Mode.


Luigi can be confused as a clone of Mario, but he's different: Luigi has a lower traction (worst in the game), an higher jump and a good ground approach with the longest wavedash in the game. Luigi's main flaw is his aerial approach: Luigi has a slow, floaty jump which makes harder to attack the opponents while jumping.

Ground attacks

  • Luigi has a new forward tilt: he throws a head butt forward. It's stronger and faster than his older forward tilt.
  • Up tilt throws the opponents backward if hits an opponent forward and vice versa.

  • Down smash is now a fall which hits both forward and backwards. It's slower than the old one but it's a better range.

Aerial attacks

  • Up aerial is now an head butt. It is worse for combo but it's a finisher.

Grab and throws

  • Luigi now pummels with ice instead using his head.
  • Forward and back throw have inverted knockback and forward one has a better knockback scaling, now being his stronger throw.

Special moves

  • Standard special is now Iceball. It's weaker but can freeze the opponent, if they have more than 20% of damage.
