    Diddy in 3.5 (Diddy Ain't Dead)

    I've really been favoring up air, now that you mention it. I liken it to the way Falcon carries people off stage with him. And speaking of bananas and ledges, I'm also a fan of shooting peanuts so that their angle takes them just past the ledge and knocks people off when they invincibility has...

    Diddy in 3.5 (Diddy Ain't Dead)

    I feel like Diddy's kill moves get way more hate than they deserve. 3.0 fair killed way earlier than it should have been, and it's still an effective kill move now, albeit at higher percents. I've only ever used f-smash for hard reads and banana punishes, I've never had any of the DI or CC...

    It seems like if you cancel it in the air right as you hit the ground, the cool down animation auto-cancels.

    Diddy in 3.5 (Diddy Ain't Dead)

    It's not something that's been super explored yet, at least not by any of the Diddy's you usually see on stream. But I'm pretty sure that any neutral B that can be charged (Lucario, Samus, Mewtwo, etc) can be canceled in this way. On a side note, popgun-canceled grabs are literally my...

    So canceling gives you a little more height, or is it just where his body is from the animation? I might consider going to Yoshi's more often if I could reliably chase to that top platform. Sorry, @SpiderMad said I can't tell you.

    Diddy in 3.5 (Diddy Ain't Dead)

    So, in the lab today I discovered that you can popgun cancel into a nair or upair during a shorthop. The timing seems somewhat tight, but I was able to get to about a 70% success rate within 15 minutes of discovering it, so I think it's pretty manageable. I think that popgun cancels and...

    Diddy in 3.5 (Diddy Ain't Dead)

    Oof, those Diddy nerfs hurt. My overall thoughts so far: I'm surprised by how little I'm bothered by the loss of the second banana, I feel like Diddy's movement and the peanuts still make his neutral game really solid. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my throws, through...

    Swanky's Sideshow: Diddy Kong Video Arkive and Kritique Thread

    Another note about side-b on stage, you can waveland out of it when the animation ends. If you're above the stage and can't get to the ledge, you can try a shortened side-b into a waveland as a mix up. Ice had people try to punish the full length side-b in this scenario and open themselves up...

    Advice on tilts

    If you press up on the control stick before the air dodge animation starts, it burns your second jump. It's avoidable, but the timing is very strict, and I had a lot of instances where I was sure I had the timing right but burned my jump anyway. I like tap jump off and L set to jump, which...

    Character/Main advice

    Floaty, disjoints, spacing, good against spacies...I'd say you're describing MewTwo.

    Kong Kollege: Diddy Kong Tactical Discussion

    What are you guys doing to follow up d-throws at lower percents? I feel like if they DI correctly, the best I can really hope for is a regrab. Poor DI can lead to nair and other aerials.

    Nah, you just need to know how to play it. Against characters like Ivy that like to force approaches, you can leverage your superior mobility and projectile game to force them to approach. This is my go-to strategy against Ivy, Zelda, and Peach.

    Diddy's Bananas

    This is probably the worst reason I've ever heard to nerf something. But I guess it's been a couple weeks since one of these threads was opened, so we were due for a new one.

    Kong Kollege: Diddy Kong Tactical Discussion

    Got reported on Netplay last night for hacking bananas so that my opponent couldn't pick them up. I've been misled all my life, clearly bananas are full of salt, not potassium.
