How to unlock:
Starting Character

A set:
    Damage: 4-16
    Damage: 15
    Damage: 12
    Damage: 14

A charged set:
    Damage: 22
    Damage: 17-23
    Damage: 16-18

B set:
  B: Eruption. Holds his sword up and slams it, tip first, into the
     ground, creating a pillar of fire and a shockwave. The longer you
     charge it, the larger the shockwave. If charged for too long, it
     will be a huge attack, but will also give you 10 damage.
    Damage: 10-37
  Side-B: Quick Draw. Holds his up beside his head, then dashes
          forward with one great swing. Can be held infinitely, but
          reaches max power when you hear the chime. 
    Damage: 9-16
  Up-B: Aether. Throws his sword up spinning into the air, then jumps
        up, catches it, and slams it into the ground.
    Damage: 2-18
  Down-B: Counter.
    Damage: Double the enemy attack.

Grab set:
    Damage: 3
    Damage: 6
    Damage: 6
    Damage: 6

Aerial set:
    Damage: 9
    Damage: 13
    Damage: 14
    Damage: 16

Final Smash - Great Aether:
Pretty much the same as his standard Aether, only longer, more powerful, and much, much cooler. You need to be pretty close to them to hit with the initial swing, but after that you'll do around 70 points of damage followed by a hard slam into the ground that can easily send them flying if they have around 100 damage.

Ike is very slow. When not used with another character, try to use his quick draw as much as possible, and stick to standard attacks. When the damage begins to mound, it wont take much for even Ikes standard moves to KO someone. Aether is also very good for building damage, and one of his few quick attacks. Get in close and try to get an opportunity to counter something, as that will knock everyone off guard, at which point you should be able to get in a good strong blow.

Defense Strategy:
Use quick attacks and dodging to build damage. Watch for his quick draw, as that can hit at quite the distance. Ranged attacks also work well, though he will be prone to countering them. Don't use strong attacks till you know he is off guard, or else he can counter for double the damage, and that can hurt.

my friend plays as Ike as his primary. I hadn't unlocked my favourite character (toon link) yet, and so I was playing as peach, from a random. on a 3-stock match, he killed me three times, and I managed to just about scrape one kill. SO MUCH HATRED WAS ACHIEVED DURING THAT FIGHT.

Wenever I battle Ike I get him to the edge, and i just don't let him in Since he isn't a very good jumper I can just keep swinging until he eventually dies. Pitt is an entirely different story

If your smart with Ike, dont spam his forward smashes or Erupton. If you do, people will play a long ranged game against you and Ike is not suited to that. Use his triple a a a combo, its basically got the strength of a smash attack.

ike actually isn't that good compared to many others since he's so slow so dodging the kill moves is kinda easy

ike has big range on a lot of his attacks so even though he has slow attacks like the forward aerial they can land because of their huge range. funny how it mentions eruption as a fast attack while he has one of the best triple jab combos in the game

Ike is one of the best characters in the game. He has a very high lanch stat and a very high launch resistance. The best i've ever done is sending a guy with 50 damage into the screen with his Charge side attack.
