  2. Ike is my best character. I've taken on my friends in 4-player match and won without losing a life, but you really have to understand the fact that everyone is best with different characters.

  7. It depends on how you play, actually. For me personally? Snake. But that's not important.
    According to the Tier List, Meta Knight is the best cheacter in the game(in case your wondering, it considers Marth to be about... the 7th or 8th best). Why? Great recovery, fast attacks, high priority, amazing edge gaurding game, and quick to rack up damage. But that doesn't mean he's the best for you or anyone else here. It means that the people that make it see Meta Knight as the character with the most potential in high-level proffesional play. Now if you ARE a high level proffesional... well, we'll see about that.(and even then, playing style still factors in)

    Essentially, to figure who's best for you, you'll have to look into a bunch of them and see which you can do best with on the field. Though remember that some will take a lot of practice to master. If you like to fight people from a distance or play a hit and run game, then use someone who can such as Snake or Pit. If you like to be in people's faces and attempt to destroy them, use somone who can do that, like Marth, Meta Knight, or even Captain Falcon.
    See what I mean?
    Now, you seem to already play as marth(me also thinks you've taken to much advice from the Prima Strategy Guide, but remember that that guide was written long before most of the advanced techniques used today were developed. Just a hunch I had since that's the only place I know saying Marth is the best) and that's all just fine =D

  8. In response to your new details... I have a tendancy to think that you simply do much better with marth than any other character simply because you've practiced with the most and know his techniques and style -_-
    And that's just fine for you. But that doesn't actually mean he's the best character ever.

  9. First if all, I believe Marth is a really good character, but he is not the best. I personally prefer (the air) snake, but I really suggest that you try many different characters with different playstyles, so that you may develop an overall strategy and can very easily adapt to certain situations.

    Secondly, each character excels, just in differing areas. (eg, Falco has the best projectiles, Diddy has the best infinites, MK has the best aerials and recovery, D3 has the best grabs, Snake has the best tilts...). I suggest you try a rounded charcter, such as sTink or ROB, and take note of what moves you do most and use characters that best use those moves. Like the bomb/gyro a lot? Try diddy. Like approaching from the air? Marth and MK are for you.
    After learning multiple characters, it is best to collaborate them into a unique playstyle that emphasises your character's strong points.

    Take an example I know very well: myself. I learnt (in order) Link, Pit, Ike, ROB, Ness, sTink, Marth, Diddy and Snake. By using one, you can adapt it to another character. If I didn't use sTink''s boomerang, I wouldn't be able to use ROB's laser. If I didn't use Diddy's bananas, I wouldn't glide toss with ROB or Snake. If I didn't use Snake I wouldn't use Ike's or Marth's tilts so much. If I didn't arrow spam with pit, I wouldn't grenade spam with snake. If I didn't Bair with Ness I wouldn't with Pit or Ike. If I didn't counter with Marth I wouldn't have countered with Ike. Get the picture? In addition, some setups that you use on some characters may have a similar counterpart on others. I wouldn't have used Ike's Bthrow to short hop Dair if I didn't figure out sTink's similar combo. I wouldn't spotdodge Short hop Dair counter with snake if I didn't Short hop Double Fair approach with Marth.

    In conclusion, (wow it's like an essay) there shouldn't be one character that you use well, but should develop multiple characters in order to combine their seperate playstyles into a form that works best for you.

    And, if you choose to heed my advice, take note that you WILL be beaten quite a bit, but you will soon end up better. If you have played Disgaea, it is kind of like Transmigration: You change your star mage into a prism mage knowing that they will go back to level one, but know that when they reach where they are now, they will be much more powerful.

  10. I say Ike is one of the best characters. He has great smahes and attacks. His final smash awesome.

  11. 1st of all, I compleatly agree w/ ShiningDraco. It does depend on ur strategy &, how much practice u've had w/ each character. However, that's as far as I'll go with that subject, concidering u clearly already have a favorite character: Marth.

    Since it seems all u're asking 4 is people's opinions, I'll give u mine.

    My favorite character is PIT. I think everything about him is cool (his moves, how he's dressed, the fact that he is a fighting angel) heck, even his weapon is pretty cool (turns from a bow in2 2 small swords).Now, I can understand how ShiningDraco said that Pit is used 4 hit-&-run strategy cause he get's great air, but that's not how I use him at all! Pit is great 4 attcking! Even though his strength is not super strong, he can easily rack up HP very fast! And when his victum's HP is high enough, Pit has strong attacks both in air & on ground 2 finish his opponent off! Even when Pit is far away, he can still hit u w/ his arrow! Not only does Pit have great attack moves, but he also has great defense moves 2! He can reflect projectiles which can b used between different attacks, making it unpredictable. And of course, he can dodge just like any character can, although u don't have 2 as much because Pit's move's tend 2 dodge a lot of moves already. Other great ability/moves Pit has r... Speed. He may not b the fastest, but he's fast enough 2 attack or defend in a pinch. Pit has 4 jumps: most characters have only 2. He has a fast recovery when hit. Pit's up & B move can practicly go anywhere (it's the highest airborn smash move in the game!) & can b used 4 reaching high places (even most self-made stages!) & dodging . Pit has an air move that is NEVER ENDING (just as long as u: keep moving the stick up & down, don't hit any walls, don't switch directions, or obviously, don't get hit)! I also like Pit, bcause he gives me a lot of options (example: should I jump, dodge, use up+B, reflect, or use this other move 2 aviod this person's attack) Last of all, when I think of how far PIT can go, or who is the best character, I think of this: on the Zelda TEMPLE stage, I can fly from the far right side of the screen (on the top of the 3 small places to jump), 2 the far left side, all the way back 2 the place I started WITHOUT TOUCHING THE FLOOR ONCE!!! I'd like 2 c another character do that!

    My other characters I use r: Lucario, Lucas, Toon Link (Tink, that's perfect haha), Yoshi, Kirby, Jigglypuff, & Diddy Kong in that order. As u look at the characters I use, u'll realize that I like characters w/ good air distance in their jumps/moves.

    I hope this is helpful 2 u in some way.
    P.S. I wish Mewtwo was in this game (he was my favorite).

  12. My favorite charachters are: Toon Link, Wario, Snake, pokemon trainer, falco, lucas. In that order. You should try diferent play styles with diferent characters. And try to pick your character's strenghts, cuz your oponent will pick your weakness.

  13. my mains are snake, ike, and meta knight.

    IKE: because he may be slow, but his hits hit HARD. You just need proper timing, just like everything else in this game. HIs neutral combo is also fast and has decent knockback and his neutral b can ko most characters (especially lightweight ones) with a charged neutral b. His downside is that he lags after he uses his moves. Also, he fights for his friends and will have no sympathy if he defeats you. He also might tell you to prepare yourself before battle.

    SNAKE: Snake has many weapons that have high knockback, and is one of the tallest brawlers and heaviest, and fun character to use. He takes brawling to the tacticial side, and you have to anylyze your opponents by trying to lure them to your trap, and how aware they are. Snake also has the cyper, which is the third best recovery in the game, and his dash attack move fast and has high knockback also. And his taunts hurt characters. His cons are that he lags with all his air moves, and has slow walking speed.

    META KNIGHT: We all know him: #1 on the tier list, but just because he is doesn't mean you will be good with him as a person changing mains. Meta Knight has many fast damaging attacks and can evade very quickly. When you get knocked to the side of the stage, meta knight can use his shuttle loop to recover, if you know how to use it. His dimention cape is perfect for trick striking or both dodging an enemy. His cons are...well, hes small, so he has the same momentum as kirby, but if you know how to control him flying, you'll be fine.

  15. I really like toon link too, mostly because of his and Link's tapdown A, (i prefer toon because he's cuter ^_^)
    But my personal favorites are Snake and Ike, as well.. I can do SO many combos with snake, with his tapup A and his Explosive set, and then hit them with the tapright/left A. he's just so applicable in every situation.. Also, Ike's final smash is just amazing. Marth's IS a bit better in my opinion, but i usually play with no items anyway.

    I do like Marth's sword combo and his regular B hit. I like that they changed that between games. Every character has their own strengths.. It's a good Idea to try brawlin' some computers and watch them and what they do to you... It's a personal choice, but like I said, Snake and Ike are where it's at (for me :P).

    He is my best character because he has attacks that do damage and they are very quick. Hes fast and good for getting back on the stage when u fall off. He is also very good at dodging

  20. My character is Luigi and I can beat almost anyone because I know how to use him. but I personally feel that Marth could be really good because of his strength and speed. Also my friend who uses Marth always gives trouble. Although you as a player have to know Marth's weakness and strengths and if you can figure them out you could be unstoppable.

  23. Olimar can easily destroy a Marth player that is too reckless in attack and is overconfident. Although Marth has some range Olimar's range is farther and his attacks are more consistently powerful. Truth be told Olimar may not win a free for all with Marth participating, but any decent olimar player on a flat stage, or shadow moses would destroy Marth.

  26. I would normally choose Peach. (Why?) Because she is good at rescuing herself from both attacks and falldowns, her well-say side-kick heart ha-ja-attack is both effective and frustrating for the enemies, she can counter with her toad (it's a strong attack) but she is a bit slow. Otherwise I should use Pit for som good air combos. But Peach normal Up-kick-attack is strong as normal smash. her final smash is not the best but gives you a chance to recover yourself and smash out your enemies!

  28. I used to think that Olimar was the worst character ever, but my friend has extreme skills and was able to win with at least 3 more points than me every time. Then i tried Olimar. He's quick, small target, has the Pikmin which work as damage absorbers for most projectiles (it sacrifices the thrown pikmin but you can pluck them very fast), and has a Super guard which can absorb knockback, not damage.

  41. My favorite character is Falco. His jumping ability, projectiles, strong smash attacks, and reflector that doubles as a surprise attack make him my player of choice. However, I also like Marth, Olimar, R.O.B. (who not many people use), Ike, Sonic, and Lucas. For most it is because of speed, Lucas for absorbing, strong smashes, and great specials, R.O.B. for his power and projectiles, and Ike because you can finish enemies of quickly, plus he has a counter.
