Neutral Attack Combo

Mii Swordfighter has a three hit neutral attack combo. The first two hits deal 3 damage each to enemies while the last hit deals 5 damage to enemies. This sword slash attack has good range and can easily attack through enemy attacks which have lower reach. The landing speed is however slower than most combos but the decent range pretty much makes up for it.

Dash Attack

During the swipe, Mii Swordfighter will come to a stop and then land the attack. The landing speed also is slower than most fighters. This is not an ideal attack for most situations.

Tilt Attacks

The attack starts from the front and goes all the way to the back. Enemies hit are sent flying in the air above Mii Swordfighter allowing you to follow up with follow up attacks.

Down Tilt

Smash Attacks

Down Smash

This attack deals 12-16.8 damage at the front and 15-21 damage to enemies at the back. The back hit is more powerful than the front one. This powerful dual side sword slash can clear the area around Mii Swordfighter easily if you need some space for yourself.

Special Attacks

Just like the Mii Brawler and Mii Gunner, you have the ability to pick all four special attacks for Mii Swordfighter as well. Each slot has three choices to choose from. We have detailed all of the available special attacks in each slot so you can easily decide the best one for your build.

Neutral Special Slot

You can pick one from the following three attacks for this slot.

Neutral Special 1 – Gale Strike

This attack deals 13 damage to enemies. Mii Swordfighter will spin and generate a tornado. He will then send it ahead in a long path. As it travels down, it will hit and damage all enemies that come in contact with it. You can launch multiple tornados at the same time making it a very decent attack to choose.

Neutral Special 2 – Shuriken of Light

This attack deals 6.5 damage to enemies. This is a basic projectile attack. Mii Swordfighter will throw his small blade star at the enemies in a straight line ahead. Unlike most attacks, the more distance it travels, higher its damage becomes. It has the least damage right after throwing it so stick to long range if you want to deal some damage with it.

Neutral Special 3 – Blurring Blade

This attack deals 0.8×5, 8-1.9×5 and 19.2 damage to enemies. You can charge this attack to deal more damage to enemies. During this attack, Mii Swordfighter will slash the area in front of his rapidly. The final hit packs the highest punch and it is aimed upward which sends enemies flying.

You can either pick for the fastest combo of this attack or simply hold down the button to charge up the damage to maximum and then release to land an attack which has more power and knockback. You can land this attack both on the ground and the air.

Side Special Slot

For this slot, you can pick one from the following three attacks.

Side Special 1 – Airborne Assault

This attack deals 12 damage to enemies. Mii Swordfighter will roll either left or right depending on your input. During this roll if he comes in contact with an enemy, he will bounce off the enemy after landing a powerful hit. In some situations, you can also use this attack for recovering from off the stage.

Side Special 2 – Gale Stab

This attack deals 8-18.5 damage to enemies. For this attack, Mii Swordfighter will rush at the enemies in his front and land a powerful sword stab. You can also use this attack to recover from off the stage.

You can perform this attack in the air but you should know that the recovery time from this attack is absolutely insane and you will not be able to do anything else until you land on a solid surface. This attack is more suited for ground combat. On the ground you can charge the attack to increase its damage by holding the button.

Side Special 3 – Chakram

This attack deals 1.1×4 damage with Tilt and 8 damage with Snap. This attack has two possible ways to land it. You can use it as a tilt move or the much faster snap move. The tilt attack is much slower but for a smash move, this deals solid damage and it much faster as well.

To switch between the two attack modes, simply input the attack like you do for a tilt attack or a smash attack but press the special attack button instead of the normal attack button. Tilt attack has short range while the smash version is good for long range attacks.

Up Special Slot

For this special attack slot, you can pick one attack from the following three attacks.

Up Special 1 – Stone Scabbard

This three hit combo attack deals 4, 3 and 4 damage to enemies. Mii Swordfighter will jump in the air and then lunge down at the enemies to perform a powerful attack. During both phases, enemies hit by the sword will take damage. You can also use this attack as a recovery move. However make sure that you reach a platform during the ascension otherwise the second phase of attack will take you to the bottom of the screen.

Up Special 2 – Skyward Slash Dash

This special attack deals 2.2, 3×5 and 4 damage to enemies. You can land this attack in any direction you want using the control stick. Before this attack Mii Swordfighter will twirl the sword on the ground and then lunge upwards for a strong multi-hit combo.

Use the control stick to choose a direction for the attack. You will need to set the direction before the attack starts otherwise Mii Swordfighter will launch at the default angle.

Up Special 3 – Hero’s Spin

This attack deals 14 damage if performed on the ground and 3, 2×3 and 5 damage if performed in the air. If you perform this attack in the air, you will not be able to perform any other attack or move until you land back on the stage. This is a very unique attack because it is completely different based on where the attack is performed.

If the attack is performed on the ground, Mii Swordfighter will spin four times and hits enemies around him once with his sword while spinning. In the air, Mii Swordfighter will spin five times and land a combo attack to enemies caught in the attack. You can use this attack as a recovery tool as well.

Down Special Slot

You can opt for one of the following three attacks for this special attack slot.

Down Special 1 – Blade Counter

This attack deals 8-29.4 damage to enemies. This is only a counter move and damage will only be dealt to enemies if someone connects with an attack while you are in this stance. Also the damage sent back to enemies depend on the power of the attack countered. The counterattack hit always faces upwards and enemies are sent flying above Mii Swordfighter.

The damage on the other hand is variable and depends on the strength of the attack connected to Mii Swordfighter during this block phase. You can also use this move in the air allowing you to counter moves in the air. You can use to prevent enemies from recovering as well as their ledge attacks will be countered.

Down Special 2 – Reversal Slash

This attack deals 6 damage to enemies. Enemies hit by this attack will be facing the opposite direction after getting hit. This attack has short range and low damage but it is excellent for confusing enemies. As you land the attack, enemy direction will be changed suddenly and the change of controls will give you an added bonus to land more attacks in their confusion.

Down Special 3 – Power Thrust

This attack can be performed in the air or the ground. If performed in the air, this attack becomes a two hit combo attack and deals 13 and 7 damage to enemies. On the ground, this attack is a single powerful hit that delivers 15 damage to enemies. In the air, this attack is a diving stab attack where additional damage is dealt to enemies when they smash on the ground.

On the ground, Mii Swordfighter will lunge at the enemies with his sword extended in one powerful stab attack. This attack can pierce through multiple enemies but the damage reduces as you travel further. Also maximum damage is inflicted at the tip of the sword.

Final Smash – Final Edge

For the Final Smash, Mii Swordfighter will launch a number of energy projectile in front which go in different directions across the whole stage. This attack is one of those attacks that offer the most stage coverage in the entire game so you can use it safely from the corner of the stage.
