I like KKR out of most characters, but sometimes there are situations where he doesn't work.

Which character best pairs with King K. Rool, preferably the kind that offsets his weaknesses, and/or is different enough in all moves and attacks?

King K. gets blown out by speedy characters, so someone adept at dealing with them would work.

That said, I'm not sure who all are the good characters at anti-rushdown.

Not sure it means anything, but I play Simon and Dedede along with K.Rool.

Dedede has similar problems to K.Rool, but Simon isn't combo fodder like the other two fatasses granted he falls offstage like one if you let people chuck you off.

I do have some trouble against rush-down characters, but sometimes my counter makes them regret their aggression. Still, it sounds like I need a character that punishes aggression.

I'm not too sure about Simon though, he's like... the king of spamming-AHEM, zoning, but I find it easy to rush him down if I just block as I make my steps towards him.

I do use Dedede... or at least I started to, but I find him to pair better with Bowser.

I'll keep experimenting, but maybe someone can beat me to it.

That's not helpful.

Disjointed hitbox users (swordusers) are good to punish rush down opponents. They can’t get up close well when they got a sword in the way.

I would go Lucina, cloud or Ike if you like any of them.

Also I main K. Rool too. But my other main characters are Pichu, Yoshi, and Snake actually (no sword user even though I play pretty well with most of them).

You can try to use Snake as your anti-rush down character, but be aware as though it’s hard to get to Snake, once they do it’s hard to get out of

I believe that getting hard to Snake is the idea for anti-rush, right? My Snake will be hard if I succeed, that's for sure.
