Final Smash - Galaxia Darkness:
Swings his cape out. If the cape hits an opponent, the screen will turn back for a second, then everything will reappear and giant slash will be drawn diagonally from where you opponent was. 40 set damage and a high probability of a KO. Can hit multiple opponents if they are in the same area.

Meta Knight has to rely on shear damage to get by, as his attacks don't pack a punch at all. Try to master his Dimensional Cape, as it's easy to get people off guard with. You can also spam his Mach Tornado for high damage, but beware it's weak point: at an angle coming in from the top. If you get a chance, his standard moveset and smash attacks are extremely fast, so use them at close range.

Defense Strategy:
Meta Knight can be really annoying, but not really deadly. There's not much you can do about most of his attacks, but you can hit him from a distance. Most of his regular moves wont stun you for long either, giving you a slight chance. His smash attacks also leave him open from the rear.

From Forum:

Here are some extra comments from the members of our forums for Meta Knight...

Kirby's rvial and an honourable warrior. Meta Knight is skilled with his sword, which he can use at incredibly fast speeds. His wings allow him to glide back to the arena if knocked off and are conceiled behind a cape, which he can use to shield behind and blend in to the environment. His battleship, the Halberd, is his most prised asset.

Final Smash: Galaxia Darkness. Meta Knight swings his cape forward. If an opponent is caught in it, the screen goes black and stops for a few seconds before Meta Knight delivers a devastating blow that does huge damage and knockback. The Smash Ball is wasted if the cape doesn't connect with anyone.

He was banned, he has too many good attacks and recoveries, not to mention his extreme speed. For pros, speed>power.

I have to admit mk's mach tornado is good but it has an easy counter just sidestep before it hits you and then do your fastest attack on him do to the small gap when mk has to pause

Meta Knight is good for is flight advantage and his annoying mach tornado and when it attacks with normal A it covers both front and back but attacking meta knight right after he stops attacking it was easy to give some damage with quick moves after that.
... or the player who is controlling meta knight really sucks. :P

yeah and and have any of you thought if you keep doing that your opponent will create new strategy's and counter back? seriously people its not like facing a computer. you guys need to think more and not think you've already won the whole match because you're playing as the top ranked character. IDIOTS.

you should all know that if you spam his mach tornado the damage will decrease and meta knight doesn't deal that much damage in the first place

Keep them locked with the Mach Tornado or the standard A attack (which hits in front AND behind) until the damage is fairly high. Then get them into the air with a smash attack an up-B, which launches better than most of his moves. Along with that, he is almost impossible to knock off the stage, and some have figured out how to glide FOREVER with him. I don't even know HOW to grab and I use him better than any other character. Seriously, one of the better players in the game (along with his killer good looks).

Meta knight is unstoppable when used right! (in my hands) haha

suggestions for MK users: abuse his areals, tornado, and shuttle loop(UP B)

no matter how many times these moves are used, they are unpredictable when timed well.
MK's only weakness is his light weight, so try to rack up the damage and KO before getting hit too much

Th makers of SSBB probably made him a starting character so people would know he was in the game and buy it,simple as advertising.He's probably the only thing keeping the Kirby series alive.
