Tips

 

LarcenTyler:

Reminder, if you are hit, you aren't out. Hold up and tap the A and B buttons repeatedly!

 

Also, remember that the barrel roll function was there to fulfill a meme before it even became one!

OK, seriously, it's not a barrel roll, it's a somersault. And it's there as an evasive tactic. Utilize it! Once you pick up the bomb, though, you can't use the somersault.
