How to beat Giga Bowser in Smash Ultimate — here are the tips you need to take down one of the most dangerous enemies in the game. Giga Bowser's greatest assets are his monstrous strength and enormous size, but they come with drawbacks. Here's how to exploit them.

Giga Bowser may have formidable range, but he's also quite slow. One strategy to defeat him is to evade his attacks while damaging him with projectiles from long range. Characters like Fox and Yoshi can accomplish this with lasers and eggs, respectively.

If you do decide to get in close, attack conservatively. Committing to an attack at the wrong moment will give Giga Bowser the chance he needs to land one of his lumbering strikes. Keep your attack strings short and sweet, picking up a little damage and getting out before that giant fist comes rolling 'round.

Look out for those big attacks. If you position yourself just inside their range and dodge out when he starts the animation, you should find yourself a little bit of time to deal extra damage while he recovers.

Stick to this safe gameplay style, and you'll knock Giga Bowser down to size in no time.
