Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

In For Glory mode online battles I am doing well until someone uses Little Mac. I can never beat Little Mac. Do you have any tips?

Games GuruWhat an awesome game! But there’s one issue. The thing about Little Mac is that he was programmed to be too powerful. This in depth video might help:

  1. When fighting little mac, you should stay in the air as long as possible, and use players like Kirby to attack from above.

  2. Use link or somebody with good balance of melee and ranged attacks.

  3. Just keep him in the air and you will be fine…Little Mac’s air game is the worst in the entirety of Smash

  4. little mac was programed to be o.p. so try BEING little mac

    You just have to get dark pit because he can fly and dodge attacks from little mac but don’t use a big chararacter like bowser and you can use kirby

  6. If you really wanna beat little mac, use a character that really packs a punch. Try somebody like Ike to start with. If he doesn’t work, keep using characters that attack with a high launch smash move. The key here is to use a character that can blow him off the screen before he can throw a fist.

  7. i have wii u smashbros hit mac when charging for xtreme hit

  8. Those were the days!

  9. There’s a Super Mario Maker stage coming out as DLC on 9/30.

    Use Kirbys side b and hold it

  12. Pff. Little Mac has poor recovery and is known for self-destructing via Jolt Haymaker. Lure the Mac to the edge; jump and fastfall onto him; grab; and u-throw and keep an air game, or f- or b- throw him off the ledge and f- or b- air and spike to prevent recovery.

    Little Mac being one of the only characters I play as, I can tell you, the only time when he is really powerful is when he uses a smash move. Hope I helped you!

  16. i am getting it

  17. linkisawesome500 // April 29, 2015 at 4:28 pm // Reply

    I recommended that use dodge and then quickly turn around and use a power attack

  18. I thought bowser jr. was only in the wii u version but i just unlocked him also for any future smash games ad at least two-three more sonic characters like silver or tails or knuckles but not shadow because he is already an assist trophy

  19. use long range attacks when his icon is red

  20. Awesomeness // March 8, 2015 at 6:45 am // Reply

    Which guy is your go to guy mine is link or Kirby

  21. Awesomeness // March 8, 2015 at 6:43 am // Reply

    Did you know that in super smash bros. brawl meta knight was the most overpowered player and he was banned from all tournaments?

  22. Older Link is the best!!

  23. game gura I have trouble beating samus on level 9 any tips?

  24. the secret character to beat little mac is……Diddy Kong

  25. little macs weakness is jumping try to take the battle in the air.

    • a very good way to beat little mac is to use a character that’s a little complex (not just a big frontal fighter) a character that can pull off lots of launching and less in damage (my pick is gerninja) or you could always become good as shulk

  26. If you use bowsers ground pound again you can beat little mac

    I BEAT A FOE IN CRUEL SMASH IN THE WII U VERSION. I’VE UNLOCKED ALL THE STAGES AND CHARACTERS IN THE WII U VERSION! Also I’m looking forward to the Mewtwo DLC.

    What I always do is if you have a remach then use little Mac against him.

  31. Vader 263834 // February 5, 2015 at 9:01 pm // Reply

    Actually, the Duck Hunt character is a trio, the duck, the dog, and the shooter in his
    smash attacks and his standard and side B moves.

  32. Vader 263834 // February 5, 2015 at 8:56 pm // Reply

    Really! Anyone who can’t beat Little Mac can’t play! Marth or Lucina can just use their
    side B and press up on the last three swings to hit him in the air!

    • So true my friend. Also, jumping when he’s about to use his super punch on you is good, because he is defenseless for a few seconds. I use that all of the time when i’m playing against him. Megaman is good too, because he can shoot his white thingies and stop him mid-punch.

  33. Im boss at super smash bros with toon link!

  34. coolguy19755 // January 28, 2015 at 8:53 am // Reply

    I also have the Wii U version.

    • Oh no! Little Mac is too strong to be beaten,unless you use one of the strongest characters like Bowser jr. and keep attacking him in air.>:]

    How do you beat Master Core on Intensity 9.0? It always depletes me of my 2 lives before I can kill it!

  36. Super Duper Fuuuuun!!!!!!!!!!! 😊😚

  37. use grabs a lot because he cant counter them and don’t let him take control of the match.

  38. I know how to beat little mac!!! Use greninja and keep using his down b attack untill he is at 75% or more then smash attack him off the stage. i won 20 battles are ready with greninja against him. To practace go to smash mode and use greninja to battle a lv 9 little mac a few times. Soon you will get used to his fighting style and be able to doge all of his moves. soon you will be a master with greninja!!! Hope this helped! 😀 😀 😀

    • I seen The pictures you guys posted on the website and I like the Mario that you guys posted on the website too

    Well Nintendo, once again you have surprised us.
    Majorly.
    Not a single leak predicted Rosalina, yet she made it in.
    No one expected Bowser Jr. either, but he got in, and so did the Koopalings.
    Everyone wanted Chrom, but we got Robin instead. At least Chrom is part of the Final Smash. Also, Lucina is pretty much a clone of Marth. Once again, a character no one expected.
    You decided to bring back Dr. Mario, but everyone wanted Roy. I thought you wanted to avoid putting clones in the game. Also, you have Dark Pit. Why?
    Of all the Pokemon to choose from, why Greninja? He’s cool and all, but it kinda seems like a random pick.
    Very interesting how you decided to promote an Assist Trophy to an actual playable character. The addition of Little Mac surprised me, but I enjoy it.
    Who would have expected the Duck Hunt dog to make it in? It is such a strange yet cool character.
    Thank you so much for keeping Sonic, as well as adding Mega Man and Pac-Man. The fans greatly appreciate it.
    So many of the stages are pixelated. You could’ve added a little more 3D art into some of them. Also, a lot of the stages are from previous Smash Bros. titles. We need more original stages.
    I’m so glad you gave more alternate skins to the characters. I especially love Wireframe Mac and Armorless Shulk.
    Oh, and speaking of Shulk, I’m glad you brought him in. Now people will show more likes towards Xenoblade Chronicles.
    Yes, Nintendo, you have made a lot of great contributions to this installment of the series, and some not so great. Just getting this game on a handheld console was a phenomenon.
    Here’s to you, Masahiro Sakurai.
    What a wonderful job your team did.

  41. super smash bros melee is mucho better then any of the other super smash bros games.

    • If you only have a gamecube, maybe. Wii U Smash is the best hands down. So much to do, and fantastic graphics make this game rock. Melee doesn’t have that. Melee is good, but not the best.

    The main thing i run into is that little mac has bad recoveries thats the only reason i dont use him

  43. The secret to Little Mac is that he fights best on the ground, but is a wimp in the air. Get him while he’s in the air.
