Changes from Brawl to Super Lawl

Ridley became a playable character, in Brawl he was a boss in the Subspace Emissary.


Netrual B: Ridley Fireball

Ridley shoots a fireball. If used in the air, it goes diagonally downwards, and makes a light explosion upon contact, which does no damage, but it stuns the opponent. If you use it in the ground, it bounces like Marios Fireball, but it bounces higher and is bigger. You can rapid-fire shoot them by pressing the b button repeatedly. This can be done up to 10 fireballs until he automatically stops shooting.

Side B: Mega Gust

Ridley gusts his wings forward, like he does in the fight against him in SSBB. Ridley can do this in the air, and on the ground. It works like F.L.U.D.D. and Water Gun, only it can't be charged, and it lasts for about 1 second. It blows the opponent back the same as F.L.U.D.D. and Water Gun when they're half charged. The initial Flap of Ridley's wings will cause some damage, and knock the opponent into the gust.

Up B: Air Raid

Ridley does a Flying Grab/Throw. He first boosts forwards, claws outstretched, then he rises into the air, doing a wing uppercut. If the opponent is hit, Ridley throws the enemy downward under him, similar to Lucas' Air Grab, and then may perform another aerial (inluding Air Raid). If they arent hit, Ridley goes into his Glide.

Down B: Giant Fireball

Ridley shoots a large fireball. It can be charged to be bigger and more damaging. Ridley can also hold this charge in his mouth by stopping it, like Toon Lucario or Samus, and continue charging later. If fully charged, it should do about 26%. If used in the air, Ridley would shoot it diagonally downwards.

Final Smash: Ridley Finisher

Ridley jumps up to the sky, then rams into the opponent(s) from the background. If the opponent is near Ridley when he innitiates the attack, They become buried, almost guaranteeing a hit. If not, The attack is very easy to avoid. It almost guarantees a K.O. if it hits. The startup for the hit that buries opponents is very fast, at just 4 frames. Deals 10% with the first hit, and 40% with the second.

Up Taunt: *Jumps & Roars*

Side Taunt: *Roars*

Character Description

Ridley (リドリー) is a recurring dragon-like antagonist in the Metroid series. He is the leader of the Space Pirates' military, and is responsible for the death of Samus’ parents, which is why the two have such a bitter rivalry. Ridley may look like a mindless beast, but he is actually incredibly intelligent, as shown by his ability to command an army of Space Pirates, among other things. Ridley has appeared in just about every single Metroid game to date, and has been a major boss in them all. Ridley has been defeated many times by Samus, but he always seems to return, be it as a cyborg or as a clone of his former self.
