Welcome to the guide of Mario's fludd.....
I'll try my best to help you fellow plumbers on how to use the fludd effectively.
What keep most mario mains from reaching their full potential is learning to use fludd.
This isn't 2008 anymore guys, fludd is good for many things, like spacing, FIHL,
defense and edge-guarding.
So with that said, I'll breakdown every fludd tactical move I've learn so far.
Fludd cancel/buffer: Fludd buffering during every match is a must for mario, charge it up
How to perform fludd buffering: Just simply fludd and shield to cancel.
Video Example: (Click here to watch) If you watch how Flameleon does it at 0:05 and again at 0:08
You can also do it just how he did it, if you like to be flashly. xD
Fludd ledge cancel attack: When your opponent is on the ledge, use the fludd. Chances are he'll
try to attack you if you're close enough to him which will push him off the ledge, setting you up for
an edge-guarding k.o.
Video Example:(Click here to watch) If you watch at 2:56, Flameleon quickly pulls out his
fludd canceling Vato's ledge attack, which puts Vato_Break in a bad situation.
Fludd KO: Fludd ko is when an opponent is on stage performing a certain move and
you push him over the ledge with your fludd. This move can result in your opponet
either losing all their jumps or the opponent being too laggy to recover.
Video Example: (Click here to watch) This video will show you how it's done. Big thanks to Fire!
for making the video.
FIHL (Fludd induced hit lag): FIHL is a move where you can use your fludd to slow down
your opponent's aerial approach making him/her lag on one frame.
Let's take Marth as an example. Marth has only two approaching aerial moves,
which is Fair & Nair, use your fludd to stop Marth dead in his tracks, then counter attack.
Video Example: (Click here to watch) Start watching from 1:07, It'll breakdown full examples.
Fludd Recovery: Fludd recovery is a situational move, yet risky. This move will take some time to
practice in order to get good at.
"If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary"
Video Example: (Click here to watch) Start watching the video at 3:49, ED will show you how it's done.
Remember, fludd is a gimping tool that can mess up your opponent's momentum and camping.
