Ike is a heavy fighter so of course, he attacks slowly. He carries the long-range Ragnell sword, which is a powerful weapon but a bit slow. his attacks are powerful but they take a long recovery time, which is one of his biggest weaknesses. You will need to make sure that after starting an attack you will need to make sure that it is the land of your enemies.
His neutral attack set hits three times. The first two attacks will deal 2.5 damage while the last deals 5 damage while throwing enemies away from him. Ike will initiate this attack with a punch, followed by a kick, and then finish the combo with a powerful sword strike. This will knock the enemy back.
This is a much faster attack and also has a low recovery time. You can use the attack to land some quick attacks on your enemies. If someone misses an attack on you, this is the perfect way to respond to some attacks on them.
His Dash’s attacks will deal 14 damage to enemies. This is a solid stacking attack that deals damage, and it also launches enemies into the air for them to perform a follow-on attack. This attack’s damage is good but if you miss, you will get some combos on yourself right away because you can’t counter anything until you get back to normal.
His Ledge’s attacks will deal 10 damage, while his basic attacks will deal 7 damage.
