Jigglypuff, known in Japan as Purin, is an unlockable character in Super Smash Bros. Melee from the Pokémon series, making a return from the original. Jigglypuff retains most of its moves from the past game, though with some modifications. Jigglypuff is 3rd place on the tier list, due to its incredible recovery, which is one of the best in the game, an extremely dangerous edgeguarding technique of the wall of pain, a powerful KO move that can easily be comboed into, and an overall great aerial game and metagame. Its floatiness also makes it the only character in the top tier who cannot be easily chaingrabbed, which is also aided by its small size. Regardless, Jigglypuff still has a slew of problems; its combination of being light and floaty makes it easier to KO than other characters, and it has a rather short wavedash, though the latter point is relatively moot since Jigglypuff spends most of its time in the air. Jigglypuff's options on the ground are also limited, because of its poor range and a lack of a projectile.
