Zelda is 18th on the tier list, in the F tier. Zelda's positive attributes include an effective killer with her Lightning Kick, as well as powerful attacks with transcendent priority. Additionally, Zelda has a somewhat long recovery, though it has few options that allow it to be extended. Zelda's primary weakness is her poor movement, due to having the lowest dash speed in the game, slow falling, and air speed, resulting in a short, slow wavedash. Zelda also lacks effective combos due to her high knockback moves, preventing her from easily racking up damage; Zelda's throwing ability is also very disappointing, with a poor chaingrabbing ability. This contributes to Zelda having poor matchups against others, though she does have a few even matchups against those higher than her, such as the Ice Climbers.
