Does Luigi have any guaranteed or possible up-b kill confirms? I know the 0-to-death combo works but I want some neutral matchups kill confirms. Since the shield to up-b got nerfed I was wondering if they were any other ways to get a guaranteed UP-B that's not from the 0-to-death combo or parrying.

And how do you guys play luigi against spacies in ultimate? do you guys just bait them by doing a dash dance and waiting for them to mess up for the grab?

2019 YEAR OF THE LUIGI.

If you guys have any other good luigi tech share it!

Dthrow down b and dthrow bair are back, dthrow nair is also good, up b can be used but it can be risky. I think dthrow dair is a kill confirm at ledge.

If you launch someone in the air and down b float while still up they can die at 80% and up
100% is near guaruntee
Today I was checking somethings with heavies and if you up tilt down air it can lead to an up B
But if you down air twice (which is harder to do) then it’s near guarunteed (works around 50% to 60%) For lights I haven’t tested it yet

True, zero to death is very powerful but I tend to avoid those combos as they are not guaranteed against super good players as they mix their DI. What I do (usually) when I get the first grab at 0% is D-throw , f-air , fast fall n-air to up-tilt and read the DI for a down b cyclone it usually stacks up around 50% which is pretty good in my opinion for the regular neutral game. A lot of people tend to underestimate Luigi's edgeguard game but i think it's incredible powerful if you know what you are doing, F-air comes out really fast and during off-stage play it pushes opponents away making it harder for them to recover, so is D-air. If you don't want to risk it Cyclone at ledge is extremely safe and powerful since it has like 5 frames of invincibility. If luigi's backair was as fast as melee luigi his matchup against spacies wouldn't be as bad in my opinion since it was a pretty big hitbox

I did some messing around and you can get an up-b kill against spacies at around 100% with this. Down Tilt -> jab reset -> up-b. Im not sure if it always works but it did in training mode with high cpu shuffling. Just make sure that the opponent is tripped to pull it off.

EDIT: Lol sorry i forgot it only works if your opponent does normal get up which is highly unlikely, but u never know when it might be useful. Maybe you could potentially get a tech chase afterwards? Ill update this post if i find anything new.
