* {{Glass|Cannon}} [[LightningBruiser Bruiser]]: Falcon is a weird combination of the two. Ha has some of the most frighteningly fast and powerful moves, and a very strong endurance, especially vertically, but his high weight and fast falling speed make him incredibly susceptible to combos forcing him to play offensively in all cases. One tiny mistake can lead to a stock gone in the blink of an eye. In ''Brawl'' he doesn't really fall into either catagory due to the low gravity of the game and a reduction in his speed.

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: He's very fast, has some of the most powerful moves, and has one of the best endurances. Despite his nerf, Captain Falcon still fits the Lightning Bruiser build in ''Brawl'', though without the competitive success that's typical for a lightning bruiser.
* LightningFireJuxtaposition: Captain Falcon mostly uses fire for his elemental attacks, in contrast to the electrical attacks used by Zero Suit Samus, his rough DistaffCounterpart and [[TheRival rival]] through Event Matches.
