SPECIAL TRAITS/TRIVIA:

--The true winner of the Smash 4 Fighter Ballot (remember Bayonetta was only described as the European winner).

--Can crawl.

--Winning stamina battles gets Sora a special fade-to-white win screen.

--Jab, f-tilt, Nair, & Fair all have 3-hit combos.

--Magic cycles between Firaga, Thundaga, & Blizzaga.

--Fireaga can be spammed until it stops.

--Each shard of Blizzaga counts as a separate projectile.

--Dair is the Hurricane Blast ability from Final Mix.

--Up throw is based on Blow-Off from Dream Drop Distance, back throws on Merge from Final Mix, & down throw on Fail-Safe from KH2.

--Aerial Sweep can chain into Sonic Blade, but not vice versa.


He's actually not very strong & has unusually short reach for a swordie; those combos are pretty important.

But after all these years, the full fighter roster is complete! Just got one boss entry & one minion entry left.


And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
