Together, Rosalina and Luma possess a highly defensive gameplay for their class and can be difficult to approach. Rosalina in particular can invalidate projectile attacks while Luma can shield Rosalina by taking hits in her place without suffering from status effects or Rosalina's damage percent being affected. Rosalina can also control how far away Luma can get from her using her standard special attack, and pull in objects and disable weapons with her Gravitational Pull move. When they work together, they can even put pressure on opponents and attack their foes when they are vulnerable. Their shared KO potential is also impressive due to Luma's power and the disjoined hitboxes for the range of Rosalina's moves. Their respective movesets are also fast and boast utility. Rosalina herself also has strong air mobility. In terms of weaknesses though, Rosalina has terrible endurance due to her height and weight making her easy to sent flying, and her air speed is only about average. Also, Rosalina loses many of her benefits and a few of her moves if Luma is taken out, as Rosalina herself possesses low attack power and short-ranged attacks. Also, while Luma is hard to KO, it can be rendered inactive when hit or pushed in certain ways. Also, Rosalina's recovery is rather linear and susceptible to attacks.
Each version of the game also comes with their own Trophies of Rosalina:
