8. Ray Gun

The Ray Gun appears in all three Super Smash Bros. games for good reasons. For characters like Captain Falcon and Donkey Kong who have no projectile attacks, the Ray Gun is a godsend. By using the Ray Gun wisely, these strong close ranged fighters can pressure their opponents from afar, forcing their opponents to approach them and make mistakes. The three incarnations of the Ray Gun differ drastically. The most notable difference is the ability to strafe while firing the Ray Gun in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This mechanic improved the usability of the Ray Gun to another level. Characters can now force their opponents to approach them while approaching their opponents!

If you can’t tell already, I love the Ray Gun. I have spent hours building custom stages in Brawl to simulate gun fights. I usually fill these stages with choke points and tunnels to promote abusing projectiles. Winning gun fights with superior manoeuvres and superior aim is just good old fun.
