List of all possible character states (ie DownDamage, DownWait)?


Smash Cadet
Nov 20, 2011
I've been searching forums and using Google for about 30 minutes now and can't seem to find a comprehensive list of all the possible character states and when they happen and what they do. As I listed in the title as an example, DownDamage or DownWait.

Other examples include AttackAir and LandingFallSpecial.

I'm interested in what situations each state happens. Framedata that generally applies to all characters would be nice as well.

Has anyone made a list like this?

Those are just the global ones. Specials have their own list, which obviously varies by character.

Also, this is essentially a list of animations, not actual action states. There is some overlap between action states and animations that accompany those states. But it gives a general sense of what those states are.

So aside from up b (which will put you in FallSpecial), other special moves will put you in different states depending on the character/move?
