- Movement speed heavily increased
- Mario has super-armor while crouching, allowing him to crouch-cancel.
Ground attacks Edit
- Forward smash's damage and kill-power have both been heavily increased.
- Up smash comes up significantly faster, and has no ending lag, allowing it to be used as a combo tool.
- Up tilt works similarly to how it does in Smash4, which lets it be a better combo tool.
Aerial attacks Edit
- Forward aerial is now much stronger and no longer has a sourspot.
- Down aerial now has no lag and can be cancelled into any move, including itself.
Throws/other attacks Edit
- Back throw's kill-power has been heavily increased, now reliably killing under 70%
- Up taunt now gives Mario a mushroom, growing him.
Special moves Edit
- [B] Fireballs are much stronger in both damage and knockback, and also spike offstage targets.
- [^B] Super-Jump-Punch now spikes offstage targets.
- F.L.U.D.D. no longer needs to be charged, as it is always at its maximum level. It now deals damage and deals higher knockback
