Diddy kong does not need many changes to make him balanced, (patch 1.0.6 and 1.0.8 took care of that) but i do have a couple of changes to make


Gravity: 0.105 -> 0.11
Down tilt FAF: 19 -> 21
Monkey flip startup lag: 19 frames -> 21 frames
Banana peel FAF: 40 -> 43

P.S i am currently unable to do the Corrin patch notes, as i need her hitbox size data.

Not sure why you would want to change dash attack. D-tilt's higher base knockback would make it combo into itself easier at lower percentages, which is unnecessary.

The higher base knockback on down tilt would slightly worsen it's combo potential, and dash attack is one of the best dash attacks in the game.

dash attack sucks lol. and the bkb increase would probably be a buff vs fastfallers since it's easier to followup without them jabbing at low %

You really aren't qualified or knowledgable enough to talk about diddy.

His dash attack is definitely one of the worst in the game.

If the first hit doesnt connect, opponents can fall out, and even if the first hit does connect they can mash out. Its not safe on shield, has very few followups past 40% with optimal di, it deals 6 damage if all hits connect.

Dash attack > Uair is about all youre gonna get at any percent and thats literally a 12 damage combo which is very underwhelming.


That "nerf" to diddy's dtilt is really more of a buff. It makes comboing at low percents easier which is the only weakness of downtilt. Also Dtilt>Usmash has such a large window that it works, this wouldnt stop it from being a kill confirm

in what universe does increasing base knockback help a move to combo? Maybe in Melee but not in SSB4.

At around 0%-20% dtilt does not have enough knockback/hitstun to combo into anything. Increasing the base knockback would make it so that it could combo for a earlier percent window, as well as not removing kill confirms
