what are greninjas fastest options for punishing OoS? For in front and behind, if possible. Can’t seem to find greninja frame data anywhere :/

You can try short hop nair/fair; sometimes the timing is just right so they drop shield or spot dodge too early and get hit. This also allows you to try and read their roll if they go for that option.

Bair if they're behind you and not a small char.

Jab, as mentioned by Chainz.

If they hit your shield with a slightly laggy move, tilts can work.

If they hit you with a very laggy move, smash attacks can work.

In many cases you will probably be better off just escaping with a roll/jump and resetting to neutral, Greninja's oos options aren't the best.

Just don't use your shield. At all.

Greninja's OOS options have been notoriously bad ever since Smash4, and the shield changes of Ultimate only worsened them further. Your mobility is your best defense when playing Greninja. If your opponent launches a strong move with too big of a hitbox to avoid it, just use the new and improved Substitute instead of your shield.
