Even though I really like Shulk, and his down air, I feel as if it's only satisfying whenever you combo into it

:ultfalcon:'s is definitely the best and most satisfying spike.

It may not be the most satisfying but :ultzelda:'s is underrated. I love getting that sweetspot.

I think :ultpit: and :ultmarth: deserve honorable mentions for their sweetspots as well. Pit's may be weak but even if it doesn't kill he can still go deep enough for a follow up spike, and Marth's tippers are always satisfying when you can get them to land.

Ganondorf and Mario come to mind immediately. Mega Man's is also pretty solid because you get to watch the fist go down and hit them.

I think Ganondorf, Mario, DK (Fair), and K. Rool (Bair) have the meatiest spikes. Ganondorf has the electric freeze-frames to give it that extra punch, and the others just have the perfect "dunk" animations. Honorable mention to Dedede Dair, which has an animation that looks like it should be meaty, but the blunt hammer hit sound effect kind of neuters it.

Landing Pit's and Ike's spikes is satisfying in that it's inordinately difficult to actually land those things with their small, precise spike sweetspots. (Conversely, spikes that are too easy to land like Ivysaur or Kirby Dair are proportionately less hype.)

And of course, not much beats landing a suicidal stall and fall Dair spike offstage.

I will never not love stage spikes caused by hydrant dropped off the side to hit low recovering enemies. It's legit the greatest thing in my life.
