The Ice Climbers wiki last edited by jbn566 on 09/23/13 03:13PM View full history

Overview

 
Popo and Nana are originally from the video game Ice Climber for the NES.
  

Special Appearances

 
The characters have recently been brought back through cameos in the Super Smash Bros. series. They came as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl
 
The player controls both but only directly controls Popo (blue male) while Nana (pink female) mimics the players actions. Many strategies such as de-synchronizing can split up their movements so you could have direct control over both and have both of them attack one right after the other for double the damage.

Only hits done to Popo count to the players hit percentage. Hits to Nana do not count but Nana could be knocked off the edge separately. Knocking Nana out does not count as a KO or a loss of stock but could severely hinder the players ability. Without Nana the player cannot do the triple jump. 
 
Often without Nana or if you need more horizontal distance you could press to the side and tap b a lot to go higher and spin to the side, you can do this alone or with Nana, her presence does not affect this move. A common strategy in VS games is to go and try to focus on knocking out Nana to hinder the other character from recoveries, chain grabbing, and de-synchronizing.
