Professor originates from the Test Subject series. In the first two games he simply watches the tests progress, which is where he gets most of his taunts from. In the third installment, Test Subject Complete, Professor becomes playable for the first time but is completely unarmed and vulnerable until he acquires the Rex209 mechsuit which he uses for his Super Attack. It isn't until Test Subject Arena 2 that he gets a weapon of his own, the Clipboard. The clipboard is unique in that it is the only weapon in the game without a ranged attack and must be used as a melee attack. However the clipboard did have a special ability to reflect projectiles which can be seen in his down special.
- Super Armor frames on his side and up special moves and his up smash
- Projectile that homes in on targets, Proton Targeting
- Possesses a projectile reflector move, Clipboard Reflect
- Smash attacks are excellent kill moves
- Good air and ground game, possessing attacks with excellent range, disjointed hitboxes, and typically fast
- Neutral aerial is excellent for starting combos
- Kill moves: forward tilt, up smash, forward smash, down smash, up aerial, down aerial, forward aerial, up throw, Proton Flurry
- Moves slowly on the ground
- Low jump height
- Poor throws
- Some aerials have higher ending lag
Professor possesses a solid jab; it comes out fast, jab locks, and is a rapid jab. However, the hitboxes on the punches are small and do not extend very far, making it unsafe on shield even at max range. The kick attack on the third hit of the jab will cause enough shield pushback when spaced to avoid being punished.
Forward tilt is an excellent spacing tool. It has good range and is disjointed. It is also a kill move, and can be set up into by punishing a tech roll or roll. Due to its large hitbox, it can be pivoted while retreating to punish a pursuing opponent. Up tilt is a fast move, and works as an anti-air and combo starter. It sends opponents into the air above Professor to follow-up with an aerial. It starts behind the Professor and moves to the front, so it can punish rolls behind Professor if timed correctly. Professor's down tilt has low range, but if the Professor's hand hits the opponent and not the rest of his arm, it will trip the opponent.
