Was wondering what were your personal bad habits with mario are. I feel like Mario is an interesting character when it comes to getting in on your opponent that when I start to find a way that works for me, i use it to a point where I feel like im just aimlessly spamming. and after a match ill be thinking about how much of his moveset i dont use and should start practicing.

for one i depend on back air way too much and have to get used to getting in while facing my opponent for grab mixups. it gets to a point where im just wailing out back airs for no reason.

i dont get my opponent in the air enough such as with his down tilt in order to get combos with his up-airs. i feel like mario is a character that you should focus on knocking the opponent upwards to rack up damage and i gotta start doing that.

thats just two of my examples, curious what you would consider ur bad habits are with him also

Mario is not my main, as I play him solely for fun sometimes, but some of the bad habits I have is that I commit too much towards up air combos and leave myself wide open. I always have the habit of going for more uairs after I land the first one, which any opponent can easy read it and get an easy punish for me.

Other habits include using cape as a stall offstage at the wrong time, and utilizing the same moves instead of mixing it up.

i cape stall too. a lot. and when i do it offstage sometimes the opponent i guess is TOO close and the cape contact noise will sound but i still get killed for it. if that makes sense

Love me some Mario from time to time, i used to play him in a lot back in sm4sh.

However... That's the problem... sometimes i still think he has his godly up-tilts, and then i get pulled back into the harsh reality when none of them connects and i get punished hard for waving my arms in the air like an utter buffon.

I definitely have a bad habit of using FLUUD in the most inopportune situations. Can't seem to keep my patience in using it.
