I realise that some of the animations are missing (mainly ledge options) and some of the gifs are a bit messily done (blue lines and hitboxes outside of image). I'll be going over this and rehauling it all sometime. I don't have access to AR over Christmas, so I'll probably have it done by sometime in January.

If you have requests to see specific frames, or animations I'll do what I can.

Nice gifs. Now there are finally some pics of the hitbox of the claw where you actually can distinguish between grabboxes and normal hitboxes.

Bowser's grab is barely longer ranged than pichu's grab. I'm glad bowser has so many moves with a little bit of inv. frames. up-B is like the greatest oos option since ice climber's grab.

But dsmash has blue hitbubbles on it looong after the hitboxes are over; they last almost right up to when he emerges from his shell. Not only that, no invincibility frames are listed under the move's GIF like they are for other moves that actually have invincibility. Also, grounded Whirling Fortress only has invincibility on startup for frames 1-4 (as stated under the GIF), but the GIF, itself, shows blue hitbubbles for a LOT longer than 4 frames. Finally, aerial Whirling Fortress also shows blue hitbubbles for a long period of time, but no invincibility is stated for the move. If blue hitbubbles really signify invincibility, then what is with all this inconsistency?

Ask Seikend.


Yellow Hurbox = normal
Blue Hurtbox = intangible/invincible (attacks pass through it) does not take damage or knockback.
Green Hurtbox = invulnerable (attacks clank) does not take damage or knockback.

I'm going to guess those are where his appendages are that are normally out, but "inside of his shell" during dsmash

I think the green hitboxes are projectile reflection boxes. They're on the space animals' reflactors, the Marios' capes, Mewtwo's Confusion, and Zelda's Nayru's Love.

Those are hitboxes, hurtboxes are the characters meat itself, as in the part that gets damaged when hit. The only green hurtboxes that exist naturally in melee are Yoshi's initial shielding animation (the parry), getting a starman, and respawning after dieing.

Bowser's hurtbox on his second jump becomes much smaller. It would be fun to update this thread. :o
