Advantage

  • Buster is a very strong art in this matchup - Luigi is a very slippery character and buster attacks on shield have enough shield push that he has a hard time using out of shield punishes. 
  • Keep your distance! Luigi doesn't have any disjointed attacks besides a relatively low-priority fireball.
