Didn't see it in Player-1's ledge tricks video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jop-jFg19DY so I thought I'd share it with you guys. It is done by dash sliding towards the ledge. As soon as you stop sliding, press down b. You will automatically fall off the ledge and the banana will hit the corner of the ledge. You can then jump and grab the banana, jump and insta-throw it up or just let it fall.

It seems like this would also be a good technique to edge guard characters with a tether recovery and in the Ditto.

It's better if you don't dash attack, though. sliding instead of dash attacking makes it so you that you end up closer to the banana when you fall off the stage. I didn't see you catch the banana once with the dash attack to banana pluck against the ledge. the fact that you can do this while turning around was new to me though so thanks for that

It would have made a lot more sense to make a video of the slide banana pluck instead of the dash attack banana pluck seeing as how it is a hell of a lot more useful (that is unless you didn't know about it)

The fact that you can actually grab the banana after plucking it makes the slide variation more useful. Pretty much everything the dash attack pluck can do, the slide pluck can do better

That seems like something important, though. It's probably one of the safest ways to pluck out bananas. Also, you caught the banana in the turn around demonstration so why not the regular one?

Cool it with the arguing about P1's videos and just discuss the technique so I don't have to lock this

I will say this is a nice trick and use it from time to time, and I hadn't thought about using it against tether recoveries before (not that many people who have them hang on their tether for very long, but still).

Actual, I told you guys about these in 2009, because a French friend of mine, Nash, discovered them.
Just to sum it up, you can fall of the edge by pressing down B after :
-a dash attack
-a dash stop
-crawling (backwards or forward, doesn't matter as long as it's towards the ledge)
-glide tossing (the toss can be either direction, the glide has to be owards the ledge)
-Not sure and no wii to test atm, but most probably running usmash.

Depending if you press down and B at the same time or down first, the banana will either land on the stage, or will bump on the edge, damaging a ledged opponent, or ready to be z catched.

The glide toss one was told to be the most useful at the time, but this technique was doomed to be a part of diddy's enormeous 'book of useless AT'.

I didn't know about the possibility of turning around, tho. That's neat.

Then we should rename that book the 'Extremely long book of useless Diddy ATs that get rediscovered every year'. Deal ?

Btw, why is Ingulit so incredibly super awesome?

Well, since you asked, I do have fun moderator powers that I only ever use for the powers of good

And that would be an amazing book actually, it could be an annual release (or whenever a new tier list comes out, because that seems to always spark fun "new" AT threads)
