Mii Swordfighter

Last Updated:

This fighter is based on a player's Mii and favors a sword in battle. Enjoy the extra reach the sword offers, but remember that it takes a bit longer for strikes to reach your opponent as a result. Customize your Mii with chargeable moves, counters, or projectile attacks.

Neutral Attack / Special Press the attack or special button only without using the Circle Pad.
Side Attack / Special Hold the circle pad to the left or right then press the attack / special buttons
Down Attack / Special Hold the circle pad down and press the attack / special buttons
Up Attack / Special Hold the circle pad up and press the attack / special buttons
Up/ Side / Down Smash Hold the circle pad to the corresponding direction and press the attack button at the same time. Smash attacks can be charged. It can be released prematurely or the character will release it after charging the move enough.
Dash Attack Tap left or right to dash then press the attack button.

Special Attacks

(These are the default Specials)

Gale Strike (Neutral Special)

The swordmaster spins around and releases a small whirlwind. This doesn't do that much damage but it can stop enemies on their tracks, giving you a window to follow up with combos.

Airborne Assault (Side Special)

The swordfighter spins around with the sword drawn, similar to a bladed wheel.

Stone Scabbard (Up Special)

The first upward slash takes the swordfighter to the air while knocking the opponent in mid-air. This is immediately followed up by a powerful slash to the ground.

Blade Counter (Down Special)

The swordfighter takes on a defensive stance that will allow him/her to counter any attack within the short time window.

Air Attacks

Neutral Air

The sword fighter cartwheels in mid-air, sword drawn.

Side Air (Front)

A flurry of quick sword thrusts.

Side Air (Back)

A backward slice

Up Air

A skyward thrust

Down Air

A spinning sword dive attack, capable of inflicting multiple hits and has a wider hitbox.

Final Smash

Final Edge

The swordfighter raises his/her sword which unleashes several crescents that damage and knockback enemies. It's better to do this near the edge to prevent any unfortunate opponents from recovering back to the stage.


The swordfighter has good reach and average speed. His/her main vertical recovery move would be the Stone Scabbard. However, just like the Brawler's Soaring Axe Kick, you should be near the edge or the move's follow up will send you plummeting to the void below. The Airborne Assault is a good horizontal recovery move because of the distance it can cover and can be used in mid-air. However, take note that using this move will render your swordfighter in a “fall” status and has the tendency to slide off the edges as well. Use this only when you're near the edge.


You're free to edit the Mii Swordfighter's movesets. The strategy will depend and change accordingly on the chosen specials for your Mii Swordfighter. Also, since you can change your Mii Swordfighter's equipment as well, you should take into consideration the stat bonuses and bonus effects your brawler can derive from those.
