Availability Starter
Final Smash Puff Up
Tier D (36)

Jigglypuff is a veteran starter character from the Pokémon franchise. Unlike its traditional availability status in the Super Smash Bros. series and the original Super Smash Flash, where Jigglypuff has been mostly an unlockable character; its availability status in Super Smash Flash 2 is that of a starter character. According to developers, this change was made to appeal Jigglypuff's very early appearance in the game and because it is among their favorite characters on the game's roster. Its sprites are custom-made and based on its appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Its voice clips and moveset are directly taken from the same game.

Jigglypuff is currently ranked 31st on the tier list of C tier, a noticeable drop from 23rd of C+ tier last tier list and a huge drop from 2nd of S tier on last demo's tier list, causing Jigglypuff to have the second highest drop after Sonic. It has strong KO moves in its smash attacks, forward throw, and Rest. It has an amazing air game due to its high air speed; fast, high priority aerials that provide good spacing and edgeguarding tools; five jumps, which can be combined with its Pound to give it one of the best horizontal recoveries in the game; and its slow falling speed, which allows it to break out of juggles and remain in the air for extended periods of time.

However, Jigglypuff is the lightest and floatiest character in the game, which makes it very easy to KO in comparison to the other fighters, especially off the top of the screen. It also has problems with range, making it vulnerable to characters with disjointed hitboxes, like Lloyd, Mr. Game & Watch, Rayman and Meta Knight. Jigglypuff also has difficulties approaching, as it has problems dealing with projectiles while lacking a projectile itself. It also has a terrible ground game with a combination of poor ground mobility, short range, and slow speed in its attacks. As such, it currently resides in the middle of low-tier.

Jigglypuff has a small player base and an overall lackluster presentation online. The only notable competitive Jigglypuff player is Chaunch, who continually defies the tier list by placing high in tournaments. Although its strengths are apparent to make it good at fighting, its weaknesses drastically outnumber the aformentioned strengths, causing it to become a low-tier character.

Jigglypuff is notable for being a lightweight, floaty and very combo-oriented character. Jigglypuff has decent air speed, but when combined with its floatiness, great air control, five midair jumps and good priority in its aerials gives it a great air game. Jigglypuff has KO moves in all of its' smash attacks, forward throw at high percentages and Rest. Due to its five midair jumps, slow falling speed, good air speed and pound gives Jiggypuff one of the best recoveries in the game. This helps in Jigglypuff's great edgeguarding tactic in the wall of pain.

Jigglypuff has a decent grab and throw game, although it possesses one of the shortest grabs in the game. Up throw is Jigglypuff's best throw, where it can lead into combos at low percentages, and into a Rest against Captain Falcon and other highfallers. Forward throw is Jigglypuff's strongest throw, being able to kill most characters at around 100%. Back throw is good for setting up edge guards.

However, Jigglypuff is held back by numerous weaknesses. Jigglypuff is the most lightest and floatiest character in the game, which makes it beyond the worst character in terms of endurance and survivability, as this also causes her to get easily KO'd at around 35% by characters with powerful moves, throws or smash attacks, like Ganondorf, Mr. Game & Watch and Rayman. In addition, while most of her moves like forward smash and back aerial have great range, its overall range is terrible out of all other characters in the game; including lightweights. This is worsened by the fact that many of its moves like down smash, forward tilt and up tilt have underwhelming range for having great ranges. This allows characters with disjointed hitboxes to keep her at arm's length.

Jigglypuff also has difficult approaches, as projectiles can outnumber it while it lacks a projectile itself. Additionally, while forward throw is its strongest throw, none of her throws outside of forward throw tend to KO until higher precentages of damage. Due to these weaknesses, it is a somewhat lackluster in the neutral game and one of the most terrible characters in terms of fighting. Jigglypuff's greatest weakness is its shield. While Jigglypuff's shield shrinks at a slower rate, if Jigglypuff's shield is broken, it will be sent upward with enough force to Star KO it, which makes its shield game the worst in the game, and also allows several characters with potent shield breakers like Marth, Mr. Game & Watch and Rayman to easily outnumber it while using shield, also making it vunerable while using shield.

Jigglypuff is described as a "glass cannon", which is a character that possesses a potent offense while being very vunerable herself, but an extremely weak defense and can be easily KO'd due to its extremely light weight. It is held back by a weak approach and its short range in most of his attacks. While all of its aerial attacks can easily combo into Rest — an attack that can KO at almost all percentages —, it is extremely easy to KO both vertically and horizontally, due to its floatiness, combined with its lightweight status; she has the lowest weight value in the game, currently.

Changes from v0.9a

MG icon.svg Main article: Jigglypuff (Super Smash Flash 2)/Changelog

Due to being a top-tier character last demo, Jigglypuff has mostly received nerfs to its combo game and kill power. Jigglypuff benefits and is hindered by the low hitstun of the demo. Jigglypuff is much harder to combo than last demo, but has a hard time combo'ing itself, has less follow up options out of throws and has a harder time combo'ing into Rest. Jigglypuff's combo game is also hindered by its lower air speed. Jigglypuff also received lower invincibility frames to its rolls and air dodge, along with them being slower makes its defensive options more lackluster than before. With these changes, Jigglypuff is seen as a less effective character.


  • Neutral Jigglypuff has received a new idle animation.


  • Nerf Air speed was decreased.
  • Nerf Air dodge has less invincibility frames and the length of the animation remains the same as last demo, making it very punishable.
  • Nerf Roll is slower.
  • Nerf Due to shield's depleting faster makes Jigglypuff more susceptible to its shielding breaking and being KO'd.

Ground attacks

  • Nerf Forward tilt has more ending lag.
  • Nerf Down smash is weaker and has more ending lag.

Aerial attacks

  • Nerf Jigglypuff has less priority in its aerials.

Grab and throws

  • Nerf Up throw can no longer chain grab. Due to the decreased hitstun of the demo, its much harder to follow up with Rest.
  • Nerf Down throw can no longer chain grab.

Special moves

  • Buff Pound now has more priority.
  • Buff Rollout is stronger and deals vertical knockback.
    • Buff It deals more shield damage.
  • Nerf Rest is weaker, its hitbox is smaller and harder to combo into due to the decrease hitstun of the demo. It also has less priority, which makes it no longer able to be used as counterattack punish.
  • Buff Jigglypuff is able to combo an aerial Rollout into Rest.
    • Buff Performing an aerial uncharged Rollout into an opponent and using Rest before Jigglypuff lands will result in the ending lag of the move being canceled.

Jigglypuff clapping.

  • Jigglypuff alongside Naruto, Pichu, Lloyd, and Sandbag are the only characters that don't clap for the winner of a match.
  • In v0.9a, Jigglypuff had a different losing pose, where it claps for the winner. It was then updated to just looking at the screen while tilting its head like in the official Super Smash Bros. games.
  • Jigglypuff's purple costume resembles its shiny form.
  • Jigglypuff, along with Yoshi, Zero Suit Samus, Tails, Mr. Game & Watch, Mega Man, Rayman, and Luffy are the only characters so far who do not go into a helpless state under normal circumstances.
  • Jigglypuff's artwork is based on its up special move, Sing.
