Super Smash Bros Ultimate is usually only seen for its competitive or casual scene. Not many people pay too much attention to the game besides that point. That is until Nintendo packaged the game with a robust story mode called World of Light. In this mode, you traverse through a gigantic map to save all of the heroes in the game. Each section of the map contains a boss character, with one boss, in particular, causing massive issues. This man is none other than Castlevania’s Dracula.
The fight is similar to Beast Ganon’s and Giga Bowser’s fight in the sense that they all have two different stages. The battle takes place in his throne room, but with no blast zones on the bottom. Dracula’s first stage has him in human form, where his weak point is directly on the head. For this part of the fight, ranged damage dealers are key. I recommend using anyone with above average projectiles, Link being a good choice.
None of Dracula’s moves do too much damage, but his attacks have a massive hitbox you need to avoid. While in the first stage, Dracula moves slowly with his moves having massive windup times. Once he starts using his fireballs, dash out of the way or shield through his barrage. Try and keep your distance, as he can make pillars of fire appear all around him. The moment he attacks, be prepared to counter or he will already be charging another hit.
Once you reach his second form, Dracula transforms into a beast. He can be hit on every part of his body from here on out, but the tradeoff is that he now hits much harder. If you have a fire resistant spirit, now is the time to pull it out. Continue to keep your distance and the fight should be over in a matter of minutes. Congratulations, you’ve beat a boss many people have had massive troubles with.
