Hey all you Sheik mains out there. Now, I've kinda noticed that if you were to watch any top level pro players play Sheik on stream and what-not, they will not use a tag (name entry, handle, etc.) due to the name still being visible from the Up-B poof. However, you WILL see lower level Sheik players who are not aware of this, play with a tag because they aren't aware of it. Professional players will take advantage of this.

What do you guys think? Do you personally use a tag? Or Not? Thanks for reading my post. :teemo:

I do on my own setup because 20XX TE makes tags disappear with sheik, zelda, and mewtwo's up b. But I never use one in tournament.

The only Sheiks I've ever seen use a tag in bracket are Swedish Delight and KDJ

I think every decent Sheik player knows about this, it often comes down to preference because it doesn't reeeally matter that much. I personally love to use a tag but yeah, generally not in bracket.
