Tips for Ness

  • if you press side b enough maybe you can get mother 3 to the west
  • Ness' PSI Magnet (down-b) can absorb all projectile explosions, including ALL of Snake's projectiles.
  • When your opponent is recovering, it’s a good idea to stand at the ledge, face away, and down smash so that the yo-yo can hang over the ledge. Makes it harder for most characters to grab the ledge.
  • Ness is a very good character in this game. He heavily counters Pikachu, a strong top tier, as well as snake. Ness gets countered by speed sword users and physical projectiles.
  • Make sure to practice recovering with Ness as he can be tricky to recover with. Recovering low always seems to be the better option in most cases as well.
  • If you double jump, hold down-forward, and use PSI Magnet in quick succession, then Ness gets boosted forwards while using magnet. This is useful for movement, combos, combo breaking, and recovery.
  • PK Thunder is a really good edge guarding tool against offstage characters without projectile absorbing moves
  • Pk thunder to recover can be very tricky. In smash ultimate, ness was blessed with one of the best air dodges of the game, as he travels more distance with it. Use it to avoid pk thunder recovery
  • PK Fire can catcb opponents that are hanging on the ledge.
  • Use the tail of your PK Thunder to stop opponents that want to get back on stage.
  • An offstage PK Thunder can launch an opponent into your upair or nair, but be prepared to capitalize.
  • Play smart. Your opponent will expect aggression, when Ness requires a mixture of aggression and mind-games. Use your int stat for both psi and your game play. Combos come from unexpected places.
  • Forward Air and Up Air are multi-hit attacks, so fast falling with them can lead into a grab, Down Tilts, or can even be a kill setup, such as back throw or forward tilt.
  • When you're up against another Ness or Lucas, and they're off stage and trying to recover, you can get rid of their PK Thunder by slamming your own into theirs, or you could just absorb it with down B
  • PSI magnet might not absorb physical projectiles, but Ness’ baseball bat can reflect them.
  • When using up or down smash to ledge guard, be careful of characters with a hitbox in their recovery. Chrom, Ike, and Roy are a few who can simply hit you through the yo yo.
  • pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire pk fire OKAY
  • When your opponent is at kill percentage, make them approach you closer to the ledge so you can back throw them to oblivion. Don't go chasing people in the middle or the opposite side of the stage
  • Powerful grabs, powerful projectiles, and powerful in the air makes Ness a threat. Great edgeguarder and ledgetrapper. He just struggles against swords or anyone that can outrange him.
  • Great Combo: PK Fire, Down Throw, F-air, (2 F-air sometimes), then PK Thunder At low percents you can: PK Fire, Back Throw, Dash attack At high percents, Back Throw kills
  • Mix-Up your recovery since Ness has a very good double-jump and when the opponent tries to spike you, inmediately activate PK Thunder to combo into PK Thunder 2 and kill him at 23%+
  • be sure to either be aggressive or defensive, going in between is not the best idea because Ness does better going all in or waiting for an opening to do heavy damage then get out.
  • Ness zero to death combo: PK Fire, down throw, jump, forward air, (precise timing needed or else opponents can air dodge) jump, immediately cancel second jump with psi magnet to stun, then down air.
  • Down throw fare train is the way to go
  • You could PK Thunder again after you PK Thunder Tackle a wall so that helps with recovery *Could be used with Japanese only Mother Boi too
  • use magnet for mixups and learn how to use it when double jump canceling
  • Practice using the down b even in neutral game. It's a really good option to approach your opponent since you are entirely covered by your attack's hitbox. You can even combo after your move lands !
  • When it comes to Ness against heavyweights like Donkey Kong, Forward Air is a monster as you can hit so many in a row before having to land. I once defeated a Donkey Kong with 5 forward airs in a row.
  • 2 players are required. Set your opponent up between you two and use your down-b. The opponent will take damage from both players moves.
  • Be careful when recovering against a character with a reflected / absorber, as they can consume your PK Thunder or counter your tackle.
  • side b into side smash works strangely well, even when they aren't hit by the first.
  • PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK THUDER uWWaAAHH *Crack* *Electricty Sounds* ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok o AHHHHH PK THUNDER uWWaAAHH *Crack* GAME.
  • beware of up air as it is dumb and can combo into itself many times over
  • Don’t pk fire spam. It doesn’t help you.
  • :)
  • For Up and Down Smash Ness uses a yo-yo, if you hold your smash attack this yo-yo actually sits out and does a little bit of damage which is great for putting pressuring on the opponent's shield.
  • An optimal kill option for ness facing to the edge: djc magnet-upair fastfall dragdown-forward tilt, true combo, it kills mario about 110%, earlier than a stage-crossing back throw!
  • Short hop fair fast fall combos into itself on every heavy, when you reach the end of the stage go for a spike or a psi magnet into fair
  • PSI Magnet is a great tool for stunning and absorbing projectiles from characters like Snake, Lucas, or another Ness. It can also sometimes break combos.
  • I hate to say it, crybabies, but just DI out of PK Fire. It's only a good move at early percents and is pretty useless at later percents so watch out for the grab Ness will want on you.
  • Use a up speical but not to hit yourself for recovory but to cancel enemy recovory
  • Down throw into f-air works well and if the victim is heavy enough can chain into more f-airs
  • Varied toolkit = varied character representation, right? Very good character in this game, no matter how you slice it.
  • Ness forward air can combo with his down special and can combo oppenets until they fall in the void. Ness PK fire can combo better than Lucas even though Lucas is more hard hitting.
  • In doubles you can team wobble with another mess/Lucas by using PSI Magnet, just hold down b after trapping your opponent in a PK Fire
  • If your just landing on the ground or a platform for around 4 frames pk fire with shoot out in between diagonaly and horizontal.
  • A good way to damage your oponent is by side b. The next thing your gonna have to do is side b, after that side b. Finally after your openent is at a high % hit him with a side b and smash attack. ez
  • - Charging yoyo is great for catching people on ledge and doing massive shield damage. When used on shield, people will often drop it to avoid shieldbreak > pk flash, so you can land some hits too!
  • Haha PK FIRE ur *** and they ******* dead
  • Low-mid% combo: Side B to D Throw to Fair to Fair (sometimes to U air instead at slightly higher %)
  • remember that you can choose the direction that pk starstorm goes to get opponets offstage killed.
  • When landing above your opponent, you can mixup with pk thunder2 into the ground and immediately use it again. If both hits connect, it will instantly break you opponent's shield!
  • PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK THUDER uWWaAAHH *Crack* *Electricty Sounds* ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok o AHHHHH PK THUNDER uWWaAAHH *Crack* GAME.
  • PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK, FIRE
  • Ness mains eat glue, Crayola crayons, chips of drywall, you name it! It keeps those pesky thoughts away OKAY
  • ness more like bird ness lol hahahahahhahahahaha
  • Look, here’s a little tip against us Ness mains. Try to gimp our recovery by getting hit by our up bs while we’re going up. It shortens the range we travel.
  • spam PKFire just spam it alot even if it dont work
  • pk ******* fire ***** just spam that **** and your ******* golden
  • PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE
  • Pk go **** yourself, stop committing arson
  • Maybe if you scream "pk fire" like a little ***** you'll win faster.
  • PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE
  • If you pk fire someone, follow up quickly as they can get out if they mash hard enough. Seen this mistake comitted by multiple ness mains.
  • Make sure to not *** while playing ness, pressing so many buttons will cause erections
  • stop thinking and start mashing every buttons on your controller
  • PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK FIRE, PK FIRE
  • PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK FIRE PK
  • Honestly during these times, the black lives that play ness dont matter and shouldve been beaten up/arrested by the police already, because black people are stupid enough to play Ness.
  • press buttons as much and fast as you can
  • spammmmmmmm side B and up air to PK thunder until they die in the blast zone
  • GAY. Ness is f**king gay GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY GAY
  • if you press side b enough maybe you can get mother 3 to the west
  • Ness' PSI Magnet (down-b) can absorb all projectile explosions, including ALL of Snake's projectiles.
  • When your opponent is recovering, it’s a good idea to stand at the ledge, face away, and down smash so that the yo-yo can hang over the ledge. Makes it harder for most characters to grab the ledge.
  • Ness is a very good character in this game. He heavily counters Pikachu, a strong top tier, as well as snake. Ness gets countered by speed sword users and physical projectiles.
  • Make sure to practice recovering with Ness as he can be tricky to recover with. Recovering low always seems to be the better option in most cases as well.
