This thread is for all the ROB users out there who'd like to give some tricks,tips,glitches, and techniques about R.O.B. i'll definetly be posting:)

Spike: His spike is one of the best. It is virtually impossible to recover from unless you are a flying character. Be aware of a glitch when spiking pit. If you Spike him in the air while he is doing his shield and you are at a high enough percent, it will send you upwards most likely Resulting in a KO.

Glide Toss: Check out this video for a better understanding:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDtdmdkzaro Basically, you have an item in your hand, you sidestep while throwing and you throw the item super-fast and cover insane ground. This can be done the same way when throwing it upwards as well. Ypu can then grab your opponent or side-a them for a fancy little combo.

Laser Control: When using your laser, you can actually change the direction it goes.For example, if your opponent is in the air, hit your special button and lightly press your analog stick down right after hitting the special button.

Infinite Final Smash: Check out this video for a better understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXnh8Qfst7Y On the Bridge of Elden Stage, get ROB in his final smash form(glowing rob) as the bridge starts to reform, hit your special button and activate the fianl smash. This trick is extremly hard to perform but the video above should clear some things up. I suggest you try this on practice mode first :)

I do believe you're looking for something like this: http://smashboards.com/threads/rob-community-guide-last-updated-july-22nd.234286/

It's a sticky in the ROB forums. It hasn't been updated in a while but it's formatted really nicely and has a huge amount of info in there. The ROB Q&A thread is another really good thread if you're looking for more specific advice.


Also, for future references, please don't multi-post. It's an intractable offense and giving/receiving infractions is no fun. I've merged all your post in this thread in to 1 post for you already but please keep that in mind in the future.
