    Peach (mostly) specific technique : Landing with (A)SDI upon being hit airborne

    New to Sheik, question on which options I have for if the enemy is able to grab the ledge?

    Silly, Useless Sheik Tech that you all gotta learn how to do for giggles

    Here's why this happens: When you hit someone with a combo count > 5, your character starts getting pushed back 0.025 meleemeters/frame. This is why you need all 6 needles to set this up. So this would...
