I've known about this for a while now, but I thought I'd post it. It is particularly good against players that do not tech or miss them frequently. It is a good way to get into their head. Most of all, I just find it funny.

I know it isn't a jab lock. It creates more of a reset but I don't know what you'd call that. And although I executed it a bit late in the video, it still works depending on how thathey land.

That wasn't a jab lock. It was executed too late based on how diddy kong was able to get up attack.

Also you don't need to make a new thread every time for this.

Still, this isn't really a reliable setup. Pill is a laggy move and nair will also jab lock or cover the tech in place option.

Also jab resets and locks are the same thing. True infinite locks are only possible in brawl while in melee it can only happen once and that's why it's called a reset.

I never said it was reliable. I said it was funny and worked against bad players. Someone didn't read my post.

Here's my combo that works on bad players

up-throw -> fair -> cape -> up-smash -> f-smash -> taunt

but that doesn't mean it needs a thread
