Attributes Edit

Midbus is ranked 8th in the tier list in the A tier. Similar to Petey, Midbus has some surprisingly decent combos for a heavyweight. He also has among the most quantitative approach options in the game. He could use his air spin, his dash attack, or his amazing Body Slam, which is not only a good attack but has a lingering hitbox and can even combo into itself and fast fall any time during the move. It also slides upon landing, which can make it useful on platforms. He's also home to the strongest normal attack in the game. His charged uppercut can be decent for setups (not juggling for obvious reasons) and dealsa great 11 damage. His Cannonball projectile is hit or miss. On the one hand, it can bounce off of walls and up to 3 can be thrown. On the other hand, the angle is too high for flat stages like Galaxy Island or Mushroom Plains. He's also the second slowest character, and unlike Bowser who has amazing camping skills to back it up, he can have a hard time keeping up with the other characters when he isn't attacking, which make his combos less effective than they should be, because his fist smash is actually really fast and can combo into itself. His large hitbox also makes him an easy target for combos and he plays really offensively, which depending on the character Midbus is facing, that can lead to some disadvantageous situations. Nevertheless, Midbus is a potential top tier, but needs more mobility and/or better spacing to make it any higher.
