HERE'S THE OFFICIAL UPTHROW UPAIR LIST.


No rage - from the center of FD - DI away - mashing jump - fresh upthrow - fresh upair.


Percentages starting from when upthrow up air starts killing until when it stops being a 50/50.


Bayonetta: 134 - 159%- use instant double jump.

Bowser Jr: 130 - 219% - use delayed double jump.

Captain Falcon: 141 - 251% use delayed double jump.

Cloud : 133 - 206% - use instant double jump.

Cloud - Limit: 140 - 247% - use delayed double jump.

Corrin: 138 - 148% - use instant double jump.

DDD: 156 - 303% - use very delayed double jump. double jump at the peak of your full hop from around 260 - 303%.

Donkey Kong: 144 - 232% - from 144% to about 185% double jump just below the peak of your full hop. then use instant double jump.

Ike: 144 - 212% - use instant double jump.

Little Mac: 123 - 212% - use very delayed double jump until around 180% to eat their double jump, then start using instant/slightly delayed double jump.

Lucario: 140 - 204% - use instant double jump until about 175%, then use delayed double jump afterwards.

Mega Man: 141 - 169% - use instant double jump. the double jump timing for megaman is fast and really strict.

Mewtwo: 100 - 178% - use a really delayed double jump until 170%, then use your double jump a bit earlier until 178.

Roy: 135 - 182% - use instant double jump. only works on no DI and DI in.

Shulk - Jump: 139 - 238%. use instant double jump.

Shulk - Shield: 212 - 362% use slightly delayed double jump until about 250%, then use instant double jump until 362%.

Could you explain how different instant vs delayed DJ are? Also why do you is there a need to delay your DJ in order to catch the jump option?

yeah i had a turbo controller mashing jump ~once per frame. also instant double jump will leave your jump indication ring basically on the ground, delayed would be timing your double jump slightly later. i believe Simi is working on making gifs to visualize the different timings.

Why does this work?
Is it the proportion of weight and Fall speed? Is it how big they are?

I would say it's either heavies or Fastfallers if there wasn't Mewtwo...

I thought it was determined that UpThrow > UpAir was not a true 50/50. Is this the full list of characters it works on? Also, has this been tested with DI?
Sorry for all the questions, im just a little skeptical about this actually working.

The docs say that a dthrow 50/50 is a work in progress do we currently know of any characters where it works? Or is that just there as an idea for if its found?

I think the Sheik Discord had a list of characters it looked like it could work on or rather they were getting some success on.
