Alright, I had seen this happen in my game before, but I didn't know exactly what happened. A few days ago, I stumbled upon this video ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=ObVM9tO5cgY) and watched it a few times. I went into practice mode and figured it out after a few tries.

At first, I wasn't using the C-stick to smash (which is harder, but let's you charge the whole way), but I was able to do it very easily using the c-stick.

I ahven't had too much time to test it, but it might be possible to link other moves from the attack instead of just the up-smash. Also, there might be a way to do it without hitting someone (not sure of this though..).

So...can anyone think of a good name?

Dude... Snake slides a LONG way when he does this. Its almost like a wavedash... I wonder what other potential this may have.

Do any other characters have a dashing attack similar to Snake's?

. . .So it's basically like Sonic's running-into-Up-smash where he runs and upsmashs well sliding to a stop.
....WTF are you talking about? Snake was dash attacking and near the end, he stopped his dash attack animation and went into an UP smash. What you're saying is Sonic just running and up smashing, so what you just said is not relevant to what Snake just did.

P.S.

This is really helpful considering Snake is going to be one of my mains.

I wasn't able to perform it with the other smash attacks, but that could also be because of the postioning of my c-stick.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention this. It also works on shields (you'll slide right through the opponent).

Once again, this was found over a week (maybe 2) ago with Falco.
To be fair, it does have very different properties and applications for Snake than it does with Falco. But I agree that it is the same technique. Perhaps more characters can use this, all with their own unique results?

Yes, I have seen this video, HOWEVER..

Besides the move having different properties than Falco's, it doesn't appear that many of the characters in the game can do this (Dash attack cancelling).

I still laugh every time I see the name "DLX-hit cancel" :laugh:

to the OP: Can you describe what you actually have to do to have snake slide like that?
Dash, press A and hit the opponent. As you hit the opponent, smash up. Because of the way Snake's dash + Up smash works, the momentum from his dash will be kept while he is charging his upsmash.

It's different from dashing into an up-smash because Snake actually hits with the dash attack, then automatically into an up-smash WITH the speed of a dash.

I think it's pretty darn awesome and will be extremely useful. If other characters have this, besides Falco, theirs are all going to have different effects and uses.

Seriously, please, this trend of calling every little thing that pops up an "advanced technique" is getting really old, really fast.

This doesn't even look practical, outside of some extremely specific circumstances. It looks quite a bit like any other character canceling their dash with their up smash (which everyone can do), but because Snake cancels the beginning of his dash attack he retains the quick momentum he builds up from it.

Also, not very advanced.

Absolutely not. This is DLX Cancelling according to the advanced tech list. You cancel your dash animation and begin a wavedash when doing your upsmash. This only works however when the dash attack hits the opponent. The video on the tech list shows Falco upsmashing right after a dash attack. The reason he doesn't go as far is because his UpSmash has a much shorter animation than Snake pulling out a mortar, setting it, launching it, then picking it back up.

Does it work when the opponent blocks. Test it. This could be good to avoid shield grabs.

Edit- also isnt this the hyphen smash found with falco. He could immediately cancel his Dash attack into up smash. My guess is everyone has something similar to this. Maybe not from the same move though.
