Making his/her debut in Super Smash Bros. 4, Wii Fit Trainer is a peculiar character that sports a unique play-style that might take a while to get use to.

Strategy and Analysis

The most important thing to know about Wii Fit Trainer is the small hit boxes of his/her moves. With such a small hit box  – Wii Fit Trainer requires precision when going for an attack. Therefore, it is equally important to understand the hit boxes of Wii Fit Trainers moves. As a general rule of thumb, the Hit Boxes are located at the foot and hand of Wii Fit Trainer. So you will want to to space and time your moves so that the hand and feet meet the opponents hurt box.

For example, Wii Fit Trainer forward air has two hit boxes one located the tip of the arm and the second at the tip of the leg, demonstrated by the image below. And by the way the hitting the opponent with the feet will meteor spike opponent.

Unfortunately, as a result of Wii Fit Trainers small Hit boxes, the fighters ground and aerial games are way below par. Therefore, it is very difficult for Wii Fit Trainer to approach and maintain pressure in battles. I personally adopt an attrition play-style – utilizing Wii Fit Trainers speed and nimbleness to gradually deal damage on the opponent and then, when at high percentage go for the kill… Essentially, adopting a hit-and-run policy. My go to moves are Back-Air, Neutral Air, Jab, Forward-Air and an accurate grab game to deal damage.

Thankfully, dealing damage is assisted with Deep Breathing, which grants Wii Fit Trainer more damage per move and causes additional hit stun (still discovering the affects). Once at a high percentage – generally when the percentage is over 100-  your goal is to KO the opponent with  a fully charged Sun Salutation. Forward-Smash is indeed a powerful killing move, but it is fairly hard to connect and is highly punishable if you happen to miss. Up-Smash is a good killing move at stages with platforms (like Battlefield) and so is Back-Air.

Your best chance of hitting with the Sun Salutation is firing the projectile at a falling mid-air enemy. Generally, a falling enemy (who has used up their second jump) only has one method of avoiding the attack, which is air dodging. Baiting the air dodge and fishing for an opening will increase the chances of hitting with a powerful Sun Salutation.

Wii Fit Trainer has 3 moves that can Meteor Smash, but unfortunately they aren’t reliable for a KO. In case you want to try, Wii Fit Trainers Forward-Air (the leg hit box), Down-Air and Header (the headbutt motion) can meteor smash.

You can cancel Wii Fit Trainer’s Header by pressing R before the fighter butts the Volleyball. The dropped ball can be propelled forward by Down-Smash, but the damage is negligible and is impractical in battle situations.
