Mii Gunner and Yoshi aside, Olimar’s Figure Player might just win the award for “most improved in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“! Back in Super Smash Bros. 4, Olimar was stuck somewhere between the mid- and low-tiers. Now he’s a solid high-tier, mainly thanks to the many moveset and AI buffs he enjoyed during the transition between games. By all accounts, though, Olimar’s position in our metagame could be even higher. He’s still really underrepresented (as many fighters are), so we hope this guide might encourage some of you to train up a strong Olimar amiibo! Let’s get started, then.
A complete summary of Olimar’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.
