Yeah, this pretty much sums it all up. gonna send this to my friend who keeps arguing with me over this. I will offer though if your opponent knows how to outplay gannon and just knows how to deal with all his tools, and especially if they play a fast character, a sword character, or a campy type character, and they are good with this type of character and are not just trying to "counterpick", gannon just kinda losses y'know. (I pocket gannon so I'm no expert but anyways just my feedback) Great article though!

Thank you. As far as Ganondorf's match-ups go, I think his best methods to counter are to negate the strengths of his opponents by the simplest method possible-- staying out of attack range with every ounce of effort. I believe Ganondorf works at his best in any match-up when the focus is to take every opportunity to clear Ganondorf's space. I like to think of it as treating Ganondorf as a fragile and ranged character, even though he is not. Eventually the opponent will make some committment; some error in movement that causes them to come just close enough to be struck by Ganondorf without being in the right position to hit him first. Even Warlock Punch is an encapsulation of this mindset, though it is one of the hardest moves to line up.
Very good guide which explains some neutral game options and edge guarding stuff with Sheik. I learned some new stuff which I will apply to my play.
As a fellow Ganon Player. This is correct. The addiction of his play style is the chess level playing mind games needed. Arsenals of feints and bluffs, while messing with your fast fall speeds to build up patterns then interrupt them. Coupled with KO power and knowing your hit priority.

It's a high that few things can compare to...

Thank you for the response. It is difficult to submit a relevant resource using strictly Brawl experience from years ago.
Really tells a good way for dorf to be played and gives insight on how he should be approaching a match.

Try it. Only current players could determine whether the analysis is dusty or not.
Absolutely incredible work. Contains anything you would ever need to know in a well-organized way.
Super informative bro thanks a whole lot!
Really interesting information! Definitely a mixup I have rarely used myself. Not the most in-depth guide, but it is a very character-dependent strategy in itself.
Badly written and full of misinformation.
