A complete summary of Peach’s performance in Super Smash Bros. 4 can be found on the character’s information page. It includes strengths and weaknesses, AI quirks, and an archive of tournament representation and results.
Stats & Bonus Effects
Peach’s best equipment setup involves a balance between Attack and Defense (+60 Attack / +60 Defense / 0 Speed). In terms of bonus effects, Auto-heal capability, Lifesteal, and Improved escapability are essential.
Peach benefits from the Heavy Vegetable custom move. Hence its name, the projectile is heavier but stronger and with increased range. It gives Peach a more meaningful projectile that helps rack up damage faster.
An amiibo becomes strongest if it is mirror matched all the way to Level 50. This is done to teach the AI which moves to rely on; after reaching Level 50, it will use this training as a base and expand upon it with matchup experience. While training your amiibo, do not play aggressively or go off-stage; instead, remain grounded and keep the following moves in mind:
- Neutral options: jab, forward tilt, down tilt, neutral special (Toad), side special (Peach Bomber), and down special (Heavy Vegetable). Peach has many useful tools at her disposal. As mentioned earlier, her jab hits twice and can follow up into a down tilt to forward smash combo. Her neutral special, Toad, should be used against telegraphed attacks, while Peach Bomber serves as a decent mid-range approach option. Regardless of whether or not you equipped Heavy Vegetable, Peach’s down special is best used from afar. If you get lucky, you might even pluck a Mr. Saturn or Bob-omb!
- Main KO moves: forward smash and up smash (Ribbon Dance). Peach’s forward smash cycles through three different tools: a golf club, a frying pan, and a tennis racket. Be mindful of which weapon Peach will use when attacking with forward smash. Her golf club has increased range and diagonal knockback, her frying pan inflicts major damage, and her tennis racket launches enemies horizontally. Peach’s up smash is a useful aerial punish, and is most powerful when the center of her body connects with the opponent.
- Moves to avoid: down smash. Peach’s down smash isn’t bad, but it does lack range and knockback. As a result, her forward and up smashes are far superior.
