I'm a Mr. Game and Watch kind of guy. He is definitely a character that works with "The best defense is a good offense." He is the lightest character in the game (tied with squirtle) but thanks to his up-b and midair down-a he has incredible air control and speed. His attacks have little-to-no lag time before or after using his moves, and with their ludicrously high priority he can usually attack straight through anything that would hit him. On top of this, the technique bucket breaking, using his down-b to negate all momentum, can be used to counteract his light weight by stopping himself from being launched. Another plus is that most people don't use G&W, meaning that when I go up against someone for the first time they usually don't know what to expect for the first round or two.
