R.O.B. is a complicate character to master: it has some good ranged attacks (Robo Bream and Gyro) but it can spam them. However, it has quite strong melee moves fast too like his Arm Rotor. R.O.B.'s smashes are quite weak, except for its up smash. R.O.B. was also nerfed in recoveries: in fact its up B launches him straight up without controlling it.

Special moves

  • Up: Robo Rocket. R.O.B. raises its arms up and flies up. Customization: High-Speed Rocket/Robo Burner.
  • Down: Gyro. R.O.B. charges a gyroscope for some moments, then it shoots it. A fully charged Gyro inflicts 11% of damage while shot and 18% when thrown. Customization: Fire Gyro/Slip Gyro,
  • Final Smash: Diffusion Beam. R.O.B. starts shooting a laser from its eyes for 25 seconds. R.O.B. can move freely and use each attack with the exception of Robo Beam. Diffusion Beam has two different lasers: a weak laser without knockback and a rare strong one with great knockback.
