King Dedede Guide Introduction

One of Smash Ultimate's largest heavyweights, King Dedede's iconic hammer moves leave players with an incredibly satisfying feeling. He's extremely beginner friendly, and his Gordo throws can punish newer players exceedingly well until they get the timing of knocking them back.

King Dedede Combos

For a heavyweight, King Dedede has a ton of reliable combos that can really put some hurt into opponents with just a few hits. Here are a couple of his bread and butter combos:
  • Up Throw + Up Air
  • Neutral Air + Back Air
  • Neutral Air + Up Tilt
  • Back Air (Weak Hit) + Up Tilt

King Dedede Tips

  • His off-stage edge-guarding is incredibly good, especially against characters that recover vertically. Use his Forward Air to knock enemies farther and recover using his numerous jumps and huge Up + B range.
  • Spamming Gordo is typically a good move, just be careful that you don't get hit by your own moves if they knock Gordo back at you.

He's not very fast, but he's one of few heavyweight fighters with great recovery. Apparently, a defeat by Kirby inspired him to train hard to learn a move called Hovering, which allows him to float after taking a deep breath.
