Find out which Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters you should play based on your zodiac sign.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is a Water sign ruled by the Moon and represented by the Crab. Like Scorpio, Cancer can be perceived as quiet and withdrawn. However, Cancer is the type to get lost in deep thought. They’re also very mellow and while introverted, can get along with anyone. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Cancer will be looking to have fun by playing familiar characters.

For example, they may gravitate towards Luigi and Young Link as they remind them of their childhood. Of course, new characters may also appeal to them. If there’s a way to learn more about certain Smash mechanics, they’ll pick a character like Piranha Plant. While they have an easier time winning with their favorites, they can really surprise you by adjusting and adapting as needed.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and represented by the Lion. There’s no sign more sure of themselves than Leo, and this isn’t entirely without reason. They know their limits and they strive to better themselves whenever possible. Fiercely competitive, Leo comes to win and will get very frustrated if they feel they’re playing poorly.

Leo has incredible endurance, and will give it their all right until the end. Because of this, you don’t want to write Leo off even if it looks like they’re losing. Leo will often select characters like Wolf who are known for being reliable, but may also feel the urge to play characters like Wii Fit Trainer just to prove they can win no matter what.

To add to this, Leo will avoid playing characters others find overpowered. While they want to win, they also want to win fair and square.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is an Earth sign ruled by the planet Mercury and represented the Virgin. Not only are Virgo calm, they have a seemingly endless amount of patience. With a huge heart and a big smile, Virgo enjoy playing games in a group setting more than they may initially let on. Because of this, they may want to avoid winning too many matches even if they have the capacity to (which they do).

Above all else, they want to enjoy the company of others. Virgo are the people you want to go to for coaching, as they have a remarkable way of explaining things. Virgo will select characters they feel are fun, but reflect a certain strength as well. They won’t go easy on their opponents when pressed, so they rely on characters who can hold their ground.

Additionally, Virgo are master strategists, meaning they view the character they choose as a whole package.
