He's more than okay at edgeguarding. He doesn't have a lot of good "kill confirms", though-- Kart Spin, F-smash, B-Air, Jab-Combo, F-Air, Hammer Smack after Up-B, are his "main" kill moves. But for edgeguarding, he has so many good and safe options.Other than jab combo at the edge after 100% and back throw I have a hard time killing with jr. He's okay at edgeguarding though.
That sucks, I can't believe he had more kill confirms in the previous game and he was awful. (Still mained Larry though <3)He's more than okay at edgeguarding.

1) If they come in low, walk off the stage and up-b drop the car on them.
2) Cannonball wall if they come in horizontally (Chrom).
3) F-air follow-ups / chases
4) Throw mechakoopa horizontally.
5) Throw mechakoopa down.
6) F-Smash (angled if needed)
So 6 totally "safe" edge-guarding strategies is kind of amazing.
It's pretty much an instant hit confirm and probably much harder online than offline, also having tap jump on helps makes it easier cuz you can just hit Up to jump cancel it as soon as you hit then B to do it.How do people kart, Up B, hammer kill confirm? It is so difficult to react online. When you hit with the kart, you have only a few frames to react and Up B to hammer. To get everything to connect, you almost have to assume that the kart will hit and just follow through with Up B.
I noticed this about Jr. in Ultimate... didn't kart always have tap jump on in Smash 4? I distinctively remember having tap jump disabled, but the Jr. kart was special in that if you tapped Up, it will jump you out of kart regardless if you had tap jump on or not. Honestly I prefer being able to tap jump out of kart, as the motion feels smooth and natural to me (during kart only, not anywhere else).also having tap jump on helps makes it easier cuz you can just hit Up to jump cancel it as soon as you hit then B to do it.
