What should I be doing as Ike? And what should I be doing against an aggressive Kirby? I heard that spacing Nair/Fair works well but when he is constantly in your face, that is kind of hard and when edge-guarding, my best option is a spaced Fair, F-tilt, or up-tilt or just let him back on. Beyond that, I don't really know what to do.

If kirby DIs the fthrow he can escape the Fair, but that's if he realizes it which is pretty easy to figure out the throw animation and DI it correctly. That being said if kirby doesn't realize this the mix up of fthrow + Fair and the throw that combo's into Uair for ike can offer nice mix up and early kills for Ike.

F-tilt will stop any dash attack spamming kirby in their tracks.

I would give Ike the advantage because of his sword and knockback, but kirby can combo the !@#$ out of ike and of course gimp him.
