That makes sense. I was aware of her being able to reach such tall characters with the first active hit frame behind her, but was skeptical that it would lead into the same footstool opportunity due to different (less) base knockback then the old, latest active hit frame method. If anybody ever cares to produce video evidence of it being inescapable, I would love to see it, but I'll take your word that it's possible under the right conditions.Yes, the infinite still works against a very limited number of characters. Umeki uploaded a vid of him infiniting 1.1.5 Bayonetta a long time ago, but he has deleted the video, likely in the fear of the infinite being removed. There's an image on the internet somewhere showing what characters can be infinited and what characters cannot. Only characters that are tall enough to get hit by the side hits of the first hit (Bayo, Bowser, Ganondorf etc.) can be infinited.
As far as I know pretty much everyone has given up on the infinite though.
