Tier A+ (13)


Gooey is a character who debuted in the Kirby series. He is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Crusade.


Gooey is currently ranked 13th (A+ tier) in the tier list. Gooey is considered one of the best characters in the game due to his good range, power, reliable chain grab (and one of the, if not the, best chain grabs in the game), good Meteor Smash, solid projectile (with the possibly the best priority in the game due to it being almost indestructible as not even a fully charged Charge Shot from Samus is strong enough enough to destroy it), good air game, good edge-guarding game, variety of attacks with disjointed hitboxes, ground advantages and an excellent jab. Consequently, Gooey is a lightweight character; therefore, he has poor recovery which significantly overshadows his performance on the stage.
