you are the reason I don't write in the Matchup threads, you always write the same that I have in mind. you are too good I guess at being Ninja.I don't really wanna write up a guide for this matchup, it's also a pretty boring one. Don't let Lucario live long at high %'s, he can kill you very quickly and easily if you do, which is why Lucario can make ridiculous comebacks.
Don't fall for Fsmash spam, know when it's safe to punish it , learn its cool down time too. Powershield it for a very easy punish. Watch out for Aura Spheres when landing, Lucarios love to hit you with the big ones from across the stage while you recover and land. When Lucario is recovering, put a Dsmash near the edge and hold onto the ledge, it's almost guaranteed gimp or damage. Watch out for wall clinging though, or double jump to aerial attempt on you if the Lucario still has one.
When you're under Lucario while he's in the air, 9/10 times they'll do a Dair. You can punish it quite easily with a Bair in between. If you're waiting for Lucario to land, be careful of Dair to Nair combo. Punish the Nair instead of Dair. Watch out for Lucario's "chain grab" on Snake at really low percents. Don't fall for utilt spam from Lucario at low percents, just DI and jump out of it.
One trick I know a couple Lucarios do is to come down on Snake after a jump and do a predictable Dair, but then jump and Dair again to throw you off. Don't fall for that either. Lucario's roll is ridiculous fast, you'll have a hard time punishing them on reaction. Try to bait them or predict them, because most Lucarios spam roll.
I think I'll have to go with 55:45 Snake too.
Not only can Lucario barely get to snake to hit him, but when he does, he hits him like...once..for no damage. And you can uptilt his dair outta shield no biggie. He has no way to close distance like...at all. No kill set ups, and like everything he does is unsafe EXCEPT A SPACED FSMASH WOOHOO.Wow @ these 55:45 ratios. Snake DESTROYS lucario rofl. Lrn2powershield.
Rofl i love this kidYou can pretty much Pivot grab anything Lucario tries to do. His Fsmash has great disjoint but some start up and we can Ftilt on reaction which has more range,damage and manliness.
We can also camp him and Lucario has like no safe options to get in. 30:70 Snake
I felt like that from the beginning of the thread but i needed some back up lol
Best part of the post.Ftilt on reaction which has more range,damage and manliness.
yeah man we whoop dat poke ***.Snake is current;y being discussed in the Lucario Metagame IRC
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
