Character Description

Ness is a couragous 13-year old boy, as well as the silent protagonist from the fictional town of Onett, located in north-western Eagleand. His favorite food is salsbury steak and his favorite thing is Rockin' or Kiai. He posesses strong psychic powers called Psychokinesis, and in the year 199X, Ness utilizes his abilities to defeat a vengeful alien known as Giygas. Among many weapons, Ness wields slingshots, yo-yos, and most famous of all, Ness's signature baseball bat. Ness is also a master of psychic powers called PSI and knows multiple attacks based on them, like PK Flash, PK Shield, PK Rockin', Hypnosis, Lifeup, Paralysis and Teleportation. In the Super Smash Bros. series, Ness would borrow some attacks from his friends, Paula and Poo, such as PK Fire, PK Thunder, PSI Magnet and PK Starstorm.


Utilizing Ness to the full can be difficult. Ness uses three different projectiles in his Special moves with differing purposes. In general, his attacks have long range and decent knockback. Ness's Side Special, PK Fire, can combo well with other attacks, while his Up Special, PK Thunder, can trap opponents and deliver great knockback if used successfully. When using PK Thunder or PK Flash, it is very dangerous as it leaves Ness vulnurable to attacks since he cannot move. One of Ness's greatest advantages are his grabs and throws and his aerial game. Combining his grabbing and throwing with his projectiles, as well as his Smash attacks, Ness can become very fierce in battle. In addition, Ness's aerial game is very powerful and quick. All in all, despite Ness's size and weight (being a mediumweight), when used correctly, Ness can become a very dangerous foe.
