Final Smash Rabbid Rabbits/Moskito

Rayman makes his first appearance as a playable character to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super 5mash Bros. 5. Rayman comes from the aptly named Rayman franchise. He is the fourth confirmed Third Party character to be included in Super Smash Bros. 5 and the first Ubisoft character. He utilizes various moves and power ups from his games. His disjointed body gives him incredible reach in terms of his physical attacks as well as utilize projectiles. However, his speed is somewhat lacking as his defensive capabilities. His light weight allows him to be knocked further than others around his height. His appearance is reflective of both his retro and recent appearances.


Rayman is mid-range in terms of power and speed but lacks defense thus making Rayman a rather easy character to hit. His main strength results in his ability to each opponents with his fists and feet from a long range. This results in incredible physical reach outside of projectiles. Many of his attacks increases the reach depending on much the standard or special button was held down but doesn't affect the move itself or the damage output. Rayman is good at pressuring opponents from afar while keeping opponents at bay.
