A complete summary of Corrin’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
Corrin’s best equipment setup balances Attack, Defense, and Speed (+50 Attack / +60 Defense / +10 Speed). In terms of bonus effects, Improved launch ability, Lifesteal, and Improved escapability are essential. As with all downloadable fighters, Corrin does not have any custom moves.
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, up tilt, and down tilt. Corrin’s rapid jab is an extremely powerful damage-building move. Your primary option should be rapid jab, but at the same time, don’t doubt the power of Corrin’s tilts. All three of them knock their opponent upwards, and are great for juggling.
- Main KO moves: up smash (Vertical Dragon Fang Thrust), down smash (Yato Dragon Fang), and down special (Counter Surge). Corrin’s up smash and down smash attacks are his most consistent KO moves, with the former serving well as an aerial punish. In a pinch, his up and back aerials can net a quick kill, but as mentioned before, it’s best to set these two moves to low priority.
- Moves to avoid: neutral special (Dragon Fang Shot). Overall, Corrin’s moveset is solid in terms of power, speed, and viability. But Dragon Fang Shot is definitely one to avoid – Corrin often gets into the habit of spamming it and using it at inappropriate times.
