Jigglypuff is a playable character, but it must be unlocked by clearing the 1-Player mode with any character. Jigglypuff has one of the best recoveries in the game and can use its low-power aerial attacks to combo larger and heavier opponents easily, but it also the lightest character and thus very easy to knock off the stage; this results in competitive players determining it to be the 8th-most viable character in the game. Jigglypuff shares the {{st|Saffron City}} stage with {{SSB|Pikachu}}.

Jigglypuff is currently 5th on ''Melee'''s tier list, meaning it consistently achieves very strong tournament results. It has a combination of attributes - fast aerial movement, quick and strong aerial attacks, and multiple jumps - that allow it to dominate aerial combat, while Rest can end an opponent's stock at shockingly early percentages and can be comboed into with little chance of escape for many of the fast-falling characters faced in tournament play. On the other hand, many such characters find it easy to KO Jigglypuff due to its light weight.

Despite retaining most of its aerial combat prowess from ''Melee'', Jigglypuff has dropped to the bottom of ''Brawl'''s tier list and sits in third-last place (36th), being deemed unviable for competitive success. Aside from Rest having been reduced significantly in power, the different physics of the game result in Jigglypuff's strategy of multiple aerials strung together both harder to pull off and less rewarding to execute.

Artwork of Jigglypuff from Super Smash Bros.

Jigglypuff is a playable character, but it must be unlocked by clearing the 1-Player mode with any character. Jigglypuff has one of the best recoveries in the game and can use its low-power aerial attacks to combo larger and heavier opponents easily, but it also the lightest character and thus very easy to knock off the stage. Jigglypuff shares the Saffron City stage with Pikachu.

Jigglypuff's moves are Pound, a basic move when the B-button is pressed, Sing which causes opponents to fall asleep, is the Up-B move, and Rest will send a foe flying if they are close enough, but if it misses, Jigglypuff is very vulnerable. This is Jigglypuff's Down-B move.

Description

The Balloon PKMN with the big, round eyes. It sings a soothing melody, sending those that hear it to sleep. When mad, it puffs itself up. As a Balloon PKMN, its body is light, weak, and easy to knock away.

Trophy Information

Classic Mode

This Balloon Pokémon invites its opponents in close with its big, round eyes and then puts them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. It puffs itself up when angry, and while it may look adorable, it's not to be trifled with; it knows several powerful techniques. Jigglypuff evolves into Wigglytuff after exposure to a Moon Stone.

Adventure Mode

Jigglypuff's normal attacks are weak, and because of its light weight it's easily sent flying. However, with its incredible midair agility, it seems to dance when airborne. Rollout is a powerful speed attack, but players must be careful not to fly off the edge. Pound does serious damage, and it can also help as a recovery move.

All-Star Mode

Jigglypuff can put its enemies to sleep if they are in range of its Sing attack, although the attack does not work on airborne foes. Rest puts Jigglypuff into a deep sleep, but at the instant it drops off, an intense energy force radiates out of the exact center of its body. If this force comes in contact with an enemy, look out! Rest is Jigglypuff's wild card.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Jigglypuff appears again in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and must be unlocked. The player can unlock Jigglypuff through the Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary, which Jigglypuff plays no major role in. Like the other characters, Jigglypuff receives a Final Smash this time around. It is called "Puff Up" and it makes Jigglypuff grow to a giant state, knocking out players that come too close to it. After a short amount of time, Jigglypuff shrinks back down to normal size.

Role in "The Subspace Emissary"

Jigglypuff, like Wolf and Toon Link, has no real role in the Subspace Emissary. After the player defeats Tabuu, Jigglypuff becomes unlockable by going halfway through the "The Swamp" area to find a secret door. Through that door, Jigglypuff appears dancing on the Pokémon Stadium 2. The player then must defeat Jigglypuff in battle to unlock it.

Codec information (on Shadow Moses Island)

  • Solid Snake: "Aw, there's a big eyeball walking around here..."
  • Roy Campbell: "That's just Jigglypuff."
  • Solid Snake: "Jigglypuff? That some kind of marshmallow?"
  • Roy Campbell: "Jigglypuff is a balloon-shaped Pokémon. It may be light and puffy and full of air, but its Sleep ability is devastating."
  • Solid Snake: "Sleep...? What's so devastating about it going to sleep?"
  • Roy Campbell: "The instant it falls asleep, there's a huge buildup of energy in its center of gravity. If it hits you, it's lights out for sure."
  • Solid Snake: "So it puts a lot of energy into sleeping? Sounds pretty irresponsible if you ask me."
  • Roy Campbell: "Takes all kinds, Snake. Especially here in 'Brawl.'"

Trophy information

Classic Mode

A Balloon Pokémon. It invites opponents in close with its big, round eyes, then puts them to sleep with a calming song. The secret to the song's unfailing efficacy is Jigglypuff's ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate opponents who touch it. It uses a Moon Stone to evolve into Wigglytuff.

All-Star Mode

Jigglypuff's Final Smash. It wills its body to get bigger and bigger and bigger. It can't move, and it can't attack--all it can do is get bigger while everyone else looks on. However, it's invulnerable, and it overpowers all attacks to gradually push its opponents off the screen. It's a very simple technique, but how it's used determines its effectiveness.

Trivia

  • Jigglypuff is the only character to keep its original voice track through all three games.
  • Because many of Jigglypuff's alternate costumes are feminine in nature—and having a gender ratio of one male to three females with no gender differences—many believe Jigglypuff to be female. However, this is not confirmed.
  • In one of Jigglypuff's palette swaps in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, its hat bears resemblance to Leaf's hat.
