Any EKU students that play Super Smash Bros. should fear Andrew Mikkelson and his unforgiving “spike” strategy.
Each character in the game has a Meteor Attack or “spike”- an attack that can send enemies straight down if hit in mid-air. Mikkelson mainly uses Samus from the Metroid franchise, who’s Meteor Attack is swinging her arm cannon downwards.
Here’s a video showing various Samus spikes.
“My strategy with Samus is to get them off the side of the stage and hunt for the spike,” Mikkelson said.
Mikkelson has also practiced with other characters to keep his opponents guessing.
“I also play as Meta Knight in Brawl, and Ganondorf in Project M and Smash for Wii U.”
Mikkelson tends to focus on kicks and powerful Smash attacks with Ganondorf, the main villian of The Legend of Zelda, and incorporates a “hit-and-run” strategy with Meta Knight from the Kirby series, landing small, continuous hits while keeping out of range until he can land a powerful finishing blow.
