A complete summary of Mii Brawler’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
Mii Brawler’s best equipment setup balances Attack and Defense (+60 Attack / +60 Defense / 0 Speed). In terms of bonus effects, Improved trade-off attack, Lifesteal, and Improved escapability are essential.
Mii Brawler benefits from the Burning Dropkick and Foot Flurry custom moves. The former doubles as a helpful recovery move, while the latter strikes multiple times and can catch opponents off-guard.
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, down tilt, and neutral special (Shot Put). The Mii Brawler’s neutral attack is about average in terms of speed and power. Keep in mind that large Mii Brawlers should not use their jab; the finisher suffers from immense ending lag. Forward tilt is both faster and stronger, and is a good neutral option for any size of Mii. Down tilt launches opponents upward and can lead into another tilt attack at low percentages. Shot Put is the Mii Brawler’s only projectile, and is best used from a distance or off-stage.
- Main KO moves: forward smash and up smash (Cartwheel Kick). Forward smash is the strongest KO move in the Mii Brawler’s arsenal; however, its heavy ending lag leaves it vulnerable. Up smash is faster, but has less range, and works well as a catch-all aerial punish.
