Jump: Similar to Shulk’s jump.
Crouch: Alm rests his sword on the ground facing down.

Weapon of Choice: The Royal Sword, which Alm received after defeating Desaix in his fortress, unsure of its purpose. He carries it in his left hand.

Special Moves
B : Curved Shot / Heavy Draw
  • With the shield out, Alm can angle his bow and arrow in a 70o angle as he charges his shot (12%, OK knockback)
  • With the shield put away, pressing B has Alm fire a somewhat slow shot that can’t be angled (13%, OK knockback; .2% recoil). When B is held, Alm fires a much quicker and more powerful shot that can break a shield (19%, medium knockback; 1.4% recoil)
B + Forwards : Shove / Double Lion
  • With the shield out, Alm pushes a gust of wind forward on the ground that pushes opponents away and deals no damage. In the air, this moves Alm forward a fair distance.
  • With the shield put away, Alm does two arc slashes with each press of B (8% per slash, OK knockback; .9% recoil per slash)
B + Up : Crosswise Cut / Deicide
  • With the shield out, Alm jabs upward once, about the height of Ike’s Aether (12%, OK knockback), and can do a 360 spin slash to either the left or right (9%, OK knockback)
  • With the shield put away, Alm jumps slightly higher, and then slams down on the ground at the apex of the jump as flames erupt in front of him (22%, medium knockback; 2.6% recoil)
B + Down : Defensive / Windsweep
  • With the shield out, Alm halves the damage taken from attacks for one hit. He can also reflect projectiles when B is let go just when a projectile connects.
  • With the shield put away, Alm charges his sword for a powerful, two-handed upward slash that uses the wind to push opponents away (29%, far knockback; 3.7% recoil)

Final Smash: Scendscale; “This is how it’s done!” A symbol glows on Alm’s left hand, as he slashes downward with a powered-up Royal Sword that extends to a huge blue sword-like beam (39%, devastating knockback). It can hit multiple opponents at once.

Gimmick: Shield; Alm can put his shield away or take it out by holding the Shield button and pressing B. His specials change depending on whether or not the shield is out, but putting it away causes his other specials to cause recoil damage.
  • Minor detail; A lot of his attacks (mainly his Shield-less specials) show a blue flame erupting around them

1: “All right.” Alm loosely mimics his animation for before his Double Lion.
2: “You can’t touch me!” Alm points his sword straight forward.
1+2: “Here’s what I can really do!” Alm mimics the pose he makes before unleashing Scendscale.

1: “I’ll never yield!” Alm’s Fighter and Hero victory animation from Echoes, added with the tossing of his shield.
2: “This is my strength” Alm’s Conqueror victory animation from Echoes.
3: “See what you get?” Alm’s victory animation from Echoes after defeating enemies with a Bow.

Applause: Alm claps.
Icon: The Fire Emblem series icon
Boxing Ring Title: Hero from Ram Village
K.O. Scream: “Gah!” “No…”
Star K.O.: “Not when we were so clooooose…!”
