Simon Belmont | Smash Ultimate | Guide & Combos

Simon Guide Introduction

Simon is an echo of his brother Richter, and his moveset is virtually identical. That being said, his main draw lays in his powerful B moves that can cover multiple angles while edge-guarding combined with his long-range whip that keeps swordsmen at bay.

Simon Combos

Richter's bread and butter combos rely mainly on his Holy Water (Down + B) and/or his Down Aerial to knock them up.

Finishers include any of his standard whip attacks or Up + B when they're higher up on the stage.

One crazy combo includes:
  • Holy Water (Down + B)
  • Jump + Cross (side + B)
  • Down Aerial
  • Down Aerial
  • Up + B

Other bread and butter combos include:
  • Down Air + Neutral Air
  • Holy Water + Forward Smash
  • Down Air + Up B

Simon Tips

  • Simon's side aerial whips can be angled either up, to the side, or downwards with aerial forward + A and back + A.
    • This effectively gives you six different attacks with forward and back aerial, and gives you 9 total aerial options with A.
  • Simon can grab the ledge with his side + A in the air, and the range is deceptively long. You can't be too close though.
  • Forward Tilt and Holy Water are your bread and butter zoning tools with a few Axes and Crosses mixed in.
