ROY - Fighter Tips & Featured Move Sets

ROY - Featured Video

Sword-arm Invulnerable when Using Up Smash Attack

Roy's up smash, Flame Sword, is an upward jab of his fiery balde. His sword arm is invulnerable during this, making the move good against air attacks.

Down Air Attack to Meteor Enemies in Air

If you can hit the foe with the full blade, this move has a meteor effect. It's powerful straight down, but aim carefully, because it lacks horizontal range.

Higher Damage Near Hilt of the Blade

Unlike Marth, Roy's attacks are more powerful the closer you get to the base of his blade. If you can get up close and personal with your opponent, you can deliver some powerful blows.
