Overview
Ridley (リドリー)Ridorī is a newcomer added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With the characterization of monstrous and sadistic attacks, he brings terror and a unique goofiness to Ultimate. Much like his personality, he uses patience and opportunity to play around his opponents. Simply acting must have sadistic intent, as it cannot be taken for granted. As a genius in his craft, he uses intricate fundamentals to crucially time and position an attack to punish an opponent's strategy. Picking each attack carefully depending on the damage inflicted on the prey he chooses. A level of prowess befitting only to thee Cunning God of Death.

A fighter with an great advantage state synergized by his amazingly strong-disjointed tools. Ridley can use hurtbox shifting on many of his attacks to create surprise reversals from incoming threats. Ledgetrapping is a vital asset, as attacks such as Forward Tilt, Up Smash, and Neutral Aerial can cover most or even all options at ledge, extending his advantage further still. Also having plenty moves that two-frame, making coming back to stage a nightmare for the opponent. With his multiple double jumps and far-reaching recovery options, Wing Blitz and Space Pirate Rush, he has the ability to go deep off-stage for extensive edgeguards.

A true video game boss, Ridley has laggy attacks that all hit in linear directions — additionally having a huge hurtbox — as his attacks can be easily scuffed out. With the combination of predictability in his approaches, mainly using his tail attacks (Neutral Aerial, Forward Tilt, and Down Tilt) to approach. Playing defensive can be very volatile as he folds to shield pressure for having below average, compared to typical fighter, out of shield options. This also applies to his recovery options, which have subpar startup, making him a sitting target for easy edgeguards. And if a successful recovery occurs, that's still half the battle.

Having the correct understanding of the fighter is crucial. Able to hone in Ridley’s high damage yield and disjointed attack range can lead into an exceptional advantage other fighters can hardly rival. A simple fighter that takes much to master is great for those who are willing to invest time into learning an unconventional character that has a kit centered around tedious poking tools and brutal punishes.

Summary
Ridley has the mixed stats of a heavyweight and a superheavyweight. A distance demon with scary damage output and amazing evasion, but suffers being a big body with the weight of a heavy.
Pros Cons
  • Wall of Tails: Use disjointed tail attacks that cover long distances to wall out an opponent's approach.
  • Explosive Evasion: Devious hurtbox shifting on many attacks, multiple double jumps, and long reaching attacks creates an uncanny topnotch punish game.
  • Consistent Slaughter: Almost every attack having disastrous damage output and intense launch power creates a fighter who can kill in any situation they may be in.
  • Ledgetrapper Pioneer: Force an uncomfortable disadvantage with attacks that cover every option near ledge diminishing resets in matches.
  • Edgeguarding Expert: Master two-framing with many attacks that can catch almost any opponent's recovery as well as exploiting many recoveries with a great offstage game taking stocks early and consistently.
  • Sadistic Strategist: Deceptively hard to master for having unorthodoxly lack luster options necessitating creative layers to gameplans where most players don't have to think about.
  • High Precision: Having committal attacks that mainly reach in only cardinal directions requires impeccable positioning and timing.
  • Pressured on Shield: Lacking out of shield options with the fastest being frame 11. Attacks safe on shield allow opponents to abuse hit and runs or aggressive mix-ups.
  • Glass Canon: Likely to take a lot of damage for being easy to combo as a large body and a higher chance on dying because of his weight compared to his superheavyweight counterparts.
  • Exploitable Recovery: Susceptible to easy edgeguards offstage because of telegraphed and long startup recovery options that'll most likely lead to a lost of a stock.
Note: ★Ridley's size is a pro and a con. Hurtbox shifting may allow him to evade attacks or sometimes fall out of combos... Or be more reliably comboed or attacked.
A Superheavy?!
With Ridley's big size similar to superheavyweights like Bowser and King K. Rool, it is safe to guest that Ridley weighs like a superheavy? No, he's actually a heavyweight! Weighing at 107 Ridley compared to the heaviest superheavy in the game with 135 Bowser and the lightest superheavy at 112 Piranha Plant. Fun fact, 107 Ridley weighs lighter than 108 Samus / Dark Samus! Ridley has a mixture of stats that a similar to the likes of a heavy but as well as a superheavy:
  • Superheavy Traits
    • Spotdodge & Rolls
    • Ledge Options
    • High Endlag
    • Unsafe on Shield
    • Grab Attributes
    • Size
  • Heavy Traits
    • Weight
    • Gravity
    • Hard Landing
    • Airdodge

  • Far 1 / Far 2 are separate hitboxes that overlap each other that serve two different purposes. Far 1 hitbox is meant to send the opponent back towards Ridley so he can more easily follow up into Jab 2 as the hitbox has more priority and can only hit fighter hurtboxes compared to their overlapping hitbox Far 2, which is to interact with anything besides a fighter, like items or stage elements.
  • Transitions to Jab 2 on frames 6 to 30 (can buffer with the attack button). If attack button is held, transitions to Jab 2 on frame 16 if hitbox didn't interact with a hurtbox.
  • For some reason, when transitioning into Jab 2 when you are still on a frame that is considered a total frame, there is a 1 frame delay (meaning if Jab 1 transitions on frames 6 to 23 it'll take 1 frame before going into Jab 2).
  • Hitbox priority goes close, midway, far 1, and then far 2.

Ridley's quickest move in his toolkit. An amazing get-off-me tool that can get him out of many hard pressured situations. If the opponent is close by, whether from a successful parry or a low hitting attack like Neutral Aerial, it's a great option to use if the player doesn't know what to do! Use the jab sequence from Jab 1 into gentleman or Rapid Jab to lead into a specific purpose depending on what is wanted. This attack is notably great for jablocking into almost every move Ridley has, most notably Forward Smash starting at mid percent.

  • Transitions to Jab 3 (can buffer with the attack button) on frames 9 to 30 and Rapid Jab on frames 9 to 11. If attack button is held, transitions to Jab 3 on frame 18 if hitbox didn't interact with a hurtbox.
  • Input the attack button four or more total times to get rapid jab (buffer before frame 9 or input attack on frames 9 to 11).
  • For some reason, has a 1 frame delay when transitioning to Jab 3 on a frame still considered total frames of Jab 2 (frames 6 to 26).
  • Hitbox priority goes close, midway, and then far.

A mediocre Jab 2 that's only justifiably used to transition into Jab 3 or Rapid Jab. Stopping the jab sequence after Jab 2 can be used as a mix up into a defensive or offensive option, though it has a lot of shield disadvantage, so use it sparingly. Not recommended to use Jab 2 on jablocks as it won’t true combo into any hard punishes that Ridley has, like Forward Smash.

  • Hitbox priority goes close then far.

A strong attack that has respectable knockback. At low percentages, it can lead into a force tech scenarios on stages with platforms. Use this as a way to extend combos. It'll most likely kill near ledge a little after the opponent gains max rage. Use this as a mix up in corner pressure scenarios to confirm a stock that may otherwise be hard to get.

  • Research what rapid jab does to Bowser Tough Guy and Kazuya Tough Body.
  • Is active frame 4 and then every 3 frames there is 1 active frame. (example: 4 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = active frame 19 for consecutive hit six).
    • Hits minimum of six times before being able to transition to Rapid Jab Finisher and transitions 2 frames after a hitbox is active; Frame 21 being the earliest transition frame.
  • Hitbox priority goes close, midway, and then far.

A great way to rack up damage at low percentages if committed to the jab sequence. Fighters who have short roll distances may not be able to roll through it when pressured on shield making reversals from a roll a little bit harder. Though not as practical — but is less committal for having the transcendent property — Rapid Jab can be used to catch attacks that do not snap to ledge right away like Chrom's Soaring Slash.

Hitbox 13.5% 12-13 39 42 -15 to -14 -
  • This move can grab items immediately upon using the move, allowing Ridley to dash far and attack while also grabbing an item directly in front of him before leaping forward.

An attack with high knockback growth and decent damage that can lead to early stocks near ledge. Also, an unreactable strong burst option that could hit opponents from far away that otherwise wouldn't be possible by Forward Tilt or Down Tilt. It also helps that during the Dash attack animation, Ridley gets a momentum shift putting his hurtbox heavily forward, allowing for skewed interactions to happen in Ridley's favor. The momentum shift gives a long reach that can be used to put a hitbox past ledge to catch opponents trying to grab ledge from above the stage. Dash attack also catch high ledge hangs or two-frame. The attack also sends the opponent into tumble starting at 0%. Combined with the fact that Dash Attack is unreactable, it can create bad DI that can catch opponents lacking, putting them in forced tech chase scenarios from it.

Sweetspot 13.0% 10-11 32 361 -10 to -9 -
  • Hitbox priority goes sourspot hitboxes (middle then close) then sweetspot hitbox (far).

One of Ridley’s most important moves in general with the move’s sweetspot being one of Ridley’s greatest poke tools due it’s high range, power, and relative safety on shield. Each angle of the move also serves a critical purpose in Ridley’s gameplan outside of its role as a kill move. Angled straight is a great grounded poke tool in neutral. Ridley notably leans back before thrusting his tail forward, allowing him to shift his own hurtbox and dodge attacks. While this move’s sweetspot has respectable kill power, the sourspot has very poor knockback scaling that can send the opponent far but only kills at really high percents. The sweetspot on the tip of Ridley’s tail has a small overlap with sourspot, causing hits with the base of Ridley’s tail tip to often register as a sourspot hit. It is recommended that Ridley players visualize the sweetspot being the upper half of Ridley’s tail tip to land the sweetspot better.

Amazing two framing tool that gimp any recovery and make those who have a hard time getting back to stage suffering. The move is also deceptively large inside Ridley with a big sourspot allowing it to catch mis-spaced rolls. This is particularly useful for ledgetrapping when the opponent tries to roll from ledge through Ridley only to be sent back out.

  • Hitbox priority goes sourspot 1 (close-top), then sweetspot (middle), then sourspot 2 and 3 (far-middle and far-topleft), and then coverage sourspot (close-bottom). Easy way visualize hitbox priority is to imagine a flipped "Γ" shape going from the bottom to top across the right wing.

Up tilt is a good anti-air when the opponent is directly above Ridley and is hard to deal with as it hits high and a large portion of the wing is disjointed. This is especially apparent when the opponent is on a platform above Ridley, allowing him to pressure the opponent to jump which can then be read by a full hop aerial depending on positioning.

Despite Up Tilt’s strength in covering directly above Ridley, this move can be somewhat poor in covering diagonally in front of him. The move is frame 8, but starts behind him and takes a couple frames to reach diagonally in front of him at frame 11. This limits its use as an anti-air on reaction to characters attempting to jump in on Ridley diagonally to start a combo, something that which is unfortunately a common scenario. It can be more useful against opponents jumping in if Ridley turns around before doing it, but risks being slower to input and exposes Ridley’s back towards the opponent where his already poor out of shield game is at its weakest.

At very early percentages, it doesn’t immediately true combo into Ridley’s aerials, and requires a bit of percent before follow-ups become guaranteed. Landing an Up Tilt on a grounded opponent at mid-percents allows Ridley to combo into other moves including Up Air which can serve as a kill confirm (insert chart here for Utilt Uair kill confirm chart). Has intangibility on Ridley’s head and arm on frames 8 and 9 to help it anti-air better but comes up very rarely and does not help the anti-air weaknesses explained above.

Sweetspot 9.0% 9-11 30 80 -12 to -10 -
  • Hitbox priority goes sourspot hitbox (close) then sweetspot hitbox (far).

Down Tilt has extremely long reach and can be used to poke and stuff out grounded approaches from very far away, making this one of Ridley’s best neutral tools on the ground, especially after a dash back pivot.

Unfortunately, the move’s sweetspot at the end of Ridley’s tail does not have great knockback and props the opponent straight up, making any true follow-ups at all percents impossible. Despite its lack of true follow ups, sweetspot Down Tilt at low percentages is a good way to check how your opponent reacts to being hit as it gives the opponent limited frames to act before Ridley can close the gap. If Ridley discovers the opponent tends to airdodge in this scenario, it can be used to read or bait an airdodge before following up with another attack, grab, or even Skewer if reading a neutral airdodge at the right distance. Keep in mind however that the opponent jumping away prevents any kind of follow up but can then be used to chase down their landing or reposition.

You're a crackhead. One of Ridley’s scariest moves as it has no sourspots and has a lot of power while also being slightly faster than most heavy smash attacks in the same power range. Due to it's animation, it is very good at whiff punishing after a dash back or simply timing it to dodge the opponent jumping in. Positioning this move properly at ledge so that the bottom of this move’s hitbox touches ledge allows it to be a nasty 2-framing option that can end the opponent’s stock at mid percents. The top this move’s hitbox has the opposite effect in the sense that it actually hits relatively high making this move difficult to short hop over.

Due to its hitbox, its recommended that players reverse up smash to catch opponents in front of them as the start of the hitbox is slightly lower. This isn’t perfect however and some characters in landing animations, especially small characters can still bypass this move if they land in time. Ridley’s entire leg is a disjoint during this move making it one of his best, albeit slow anti-airs that can challenge anything directly above him. This move has extremely long range above Ridley, essentially creating a semi-circle of hitbox that, when positioned properly, allow Ridley to cover entire platforms with proper timing to add more percent or kill off of a mistech.

  • Charge hold on frame 3. Max charge is reached frame 60 of hold and can be held up to 180 frames. Max charge has a 1.4x damage multiplier.

This move has an absolutely massive hitbox hitting nearly 1 Ridley away on both sides alongside hitting deep below Ridley and somewhat above the ground to not make it entirely useless against opponents on the ground. This of course makes it a strong 2framing option with its 4 frames of hit detection, although the move’s slow speed can hinder it as the charge of the move happens frame 2, requiring the user to let go 22 frames ahead of time. A whiffed down smash at ledge is also much more easily punished. It’s recommended that this move be reserved for covering opponents attempting to recover high to ledge or as a “checkmate” move after a ledge regrab. Unsurprisingly, this move’s large hop can jump over and high profile low hitting moves making it a premier option for dodging get up attacks after mistechs or a skewer. In the corner with proper timing this move can even cover every option.

On most competitive stages, Down Smash can cover the entire platform which can allow near guaranteed followups after a mistech/skewer. This can also be a niche bait option for players underneath Ridley who try to hit from below with an aerial only for Ridley to hop over their move during down smash’s start up and slam down for hard hit capable of occasionally stealing stocks around 90-100%.

  • Grabs ledge on frame 64+.

  • Earliest you can autocancel short hop fast fall nair is frame 23. Short hop, full hop, and full hop fast fall nair will always autocancel nair.

The move Ridley is most known for, it’s disjointed going nearly all around Ridley who is already pretty massive himself. Autocancels towards the end of the move and serves a plethora of uses in all parts of Ridley’s gameplay as a space-control option from neutral, a common combo move, and a hard to avoid edgeguard move. The back hit of Nair is important for setting up combos at low percents while also putting the opponent in a really scary position at mid percents offstage as it can link into BAir for an early KO

Despite this move’s strengths, it has its fair share of weaknesses. Firstly, while this move is -8 on shield at best, this is at the beginning of the move making it more punishable as Ridley won’t have time to autocancel. Never use NAir rising against an opponent on shield. Like with Up Tilt, NAir also takes time to reach diagonally in front of Ridley at frame 12 making it not perfect for instantly stuffing aerial approaches from a short hop.

An interesting multi-tail stab attacks that does very high damage for one move alongside having high base knockback. However, it does not have good knockback scaling making this move not very good for actually killing. The first hit of fair when landing can always combo into Jab, making it good for racking up some damage at low percents. It is also the starter of one of Ridley’s kill confirms at high percent by linking FAir 1 into Jab 1 > Jab 2 > Jab 3.

Has an extreme disjoint in front of Ridley that’s nigh-impossible to challenge from directly in front of him, but has a weakness in only hitting directly in front of him, meaning moves coming from diagonal angles can hit Ridley out of this move. This is especially apparent when trying to land with Fair as the opponent can hit Ridley’s foot that sticks out downward during this move before Ridley can hit the opponent.

  • Grabs ledge on frame 53+.
  • Hitbox priority goes close, middle, and then far.

This is one of Ridley’s most preferred methods of KOing the opponent as back air not only has extremely high range and power, but also has no sourspots at all. When it hits, it will always hit hard. The hitbox for this move is so large on Ridley’s thigh that it actually goes into his body and even a tiny bit in the front,allowing Ridley to directly land on top of the opponent and connect the hit rather than them being behind him. An example of this in use is short hopping, then at the apex of the short hop, input a fast fall and then land on top of the opponent. Fast falling can be tricky however since you risk canceling the move.

Despite its power, this move is not well suited to be used at low percents and can even be unsafe on hit at extremely low percents.

  • Grabs ledge on frame 51+.
  • Hitbox priority goes sourspot (close) then sweetspot (far).

Up Air has great kill power at its sweetspot making being directly above Ridley that much scarier in conjunction with up tilt and up smash. It is, however, somewhat narrow making it more suited to sniping the opponent out of the air with its long reach. It's high range can be deceptive due to Ridley shifting his body upwards a bit for the duration of the move somewhat similar to Wario’s Back Air.

  • Grabs ledge on frame 80+.
  • Hitbox priority goes meteor (far) then sourspot (close).

Although Down Air is actually an extremely strong spike knockback-wise that lasts 8 frames, the strangely small sweetspot inside the move’s sourspot causes the spike to be unreliable. Furthermore, at all percent Ridley has 0 true follow-ups from hitting a Down Air spike on stage as the end lag on the move is too high. If the opponent is directly below Ridley and/or is rising with a move or jump is when the sweetspot can actually hit from decently far up, but this is so exceedingly rare that purposefully going for it is a huge risk.This move’s high end lag on whiff and on shield as well as its poor shield damage makes it highly inadvisable to use this move on stage where the opponent can easily block and retaliate.

For all of Down Air’s flaws, it has 2 saving graces. The first is that the sourspot is actually decently strong and has respectable kill power at later percents especially when used offstage while the second is that this move is actually the fastest “stall and fall” type down air coming out at frame 12. It’s recommended that this move be used mainly offstage as an edgeguard option where the opponent cannot shield Down Air. Ridley can use this move after a full hop and still recover (except on Smashville and Yoshi’s Story, though Town & City is possible but with very tight timing). Ridley can also gain height and then use this move after jumping from a platform or alternatively jumping after jump releasing his Side Special. Ridley can use this move as a movement option after being sent very high in the air offstage to reposition and recover faster rather than float down slowly. Although fast, this option shouldn’t be overused as the opponent can simply wait around where Ridley ends up at the end of the move and punish

  • Max charge has roughly ~1.26x damage modifier (has an unknown formula so there is no proper way to calculate damage).

A fully charged plasma breath fires at a slightly further arc than other charge times. With proper positioning at ledge this lets ridley contest horizontal recoveries with non-full charge plasma breath while also being able to use full charge to go over ledge cover low without needing to reposition.

This move allows Ridley to cover a huge distance alongside a large disjoint (with the exception of Wing Blitz Down), making it difficult to contest from the direction the hitbox is coming from. This comes at the cost of having high startup and endlag as well as having only 4 angles to choose from.

Players can hold down after using Wing Blitz Upwards in order to poke through the stage. Although one must be aware of how low they are when doing this as holding down for too long will make Ridley go past ledge and leave himself vulnerable if the move misses. Some characters can also bypass/trade with this move with a spike like Captain Falcon or Pyra, making poking from underneath the stage inadvisable versus those characters in most scenarios. A nice trick to optimize this technique is to stop holding down once the move actually connects/hits shield in order to use the hitstun to be able to grab ledge afterwards

When using Wing Blitz Forward to recover, remember that despite the hitbox in front of ridley being at a slight angle downward, his ledge grab box remains the same and allows Ridley to snap to ledge with the forward angle lower than what you would think. To snap to the ledge properly, act as if the move is heading straight horizontally rather than at an angle and line up the top of Ridley’s head to the ledge. A very low example (I’ll record an easier standalone sample clip another time -Zeta5)

  • Can grab ledge starting frame 40 onwards.
  • Goes into special fall starting frame 59. When in special fall, Ridley suffers landing lag and does not go into Wing Blitz's Downward Landing Attack.

Wing Blitz Down can be used above ledge and still snap as long as the player lets go of the down direction in time. This takes a bit of getting used to but is one of Ridley’s most dangerous edgeguards as this can gimp at low percents or just outright kill at low-mid percents depending on the stage.

  • Reversible frame 4 and Ridley turns around frame 5.
  • Ridley suffers only one frame of hitlag (or shieldlag) max.
  • The first hitbox (success hitbox) on Skewer leads into the throw attack the next frame.

A high risk, high reward special. Skewer does a staggering 69% in singles that can turn around games through sheer percent gain even if the Ridley player fails the follow up read. However, Ridley needs to space this move well such that it lands the sweet spot. VERY unsafe when shielded, and very easy to whiff punish. While slow at frame 30, this does not make the move totally unusable and can be very threatening when used in conjunction with b-reverses and wavebounces to shift Ridley around turning the move’s start up.

This move has a very small sourspot at the very tip of Ridley’s tail which causes seemingly sweetspot hits to fail. To counteract this, it’s important to visualize the move’s sweetspot being at the base half of the tip of Ridley’s tail in order to get the full hit, even if the actual hitbox is a little bit bigger.

Down Smash is a common follow up due to how it covers neutral getup, get up attack, and roll in, but the opponent can counterplay by delaying their option to use invincibility frames, or just roll away. It is recommended Ridley players take into account stage positioning when choosing a follow up, or take into account a small mental profile of their opponent before choosing an option.

If the opponent is high percent center stage when skewer finishes, they might be more inclined to roll out to avoid down smash to which Ridley can dash attack to get a kill. If Ridley hits a skewer as a reversal with the opponent center stage, they may choose to neutral get up/get up attack as to try and keep stage control to which down smash/forward smash(depending on the character) will work.

  • "Throw Release" is the frame that launches the opponent during a throw. "Forced Release" is when the throw is interrupted before completed.
  • Does not have hitlag.

Ridley’s most damaging throw which should be considered when raw damage is what you’re looking for. Has high base knockback but no combo potential at any percent, only acting as a frame trap to maybe land Uair at 0 which is still inadvisable. Can be used to get a kill at high percentages if on the top platform of battlefield/yoshi’s. At extremely high percents Dthrow actually kills earlier than Uthrow, but depending on the circumstances, especially if a skewer was involved, a Uthrow can be optimal to try and kill when Dthrow is too staled to KO.

  • "Throw Release" is the frame that launches the opponent during a throw. "Forced Release" is when the throw is interrupted before completed.
  • Does not have hitlag.

Ridley’s most useful throw being one of his main combo tools while actually also killing slightly before Upthrow at really high percents. Combos into Ftilt angled up, Fair, and Nair (frame perfect) at 0%. Between 5-20% short hop into Nair or Fair work with Bair opening up as well as an option.

Past 25% is short hop combos begin to break versus middleweights with proper DI out, but on heavier characters you can keep applying more damage. Around 40% is when full hops are required to combo into Nair/Fair/Bair although again proper DI out can break these links. Around 60-70% is where full hop Bair becomes very scary as improper DI in or no DI can lead to Bair sneaking a kill, especially on heavies around 80%
