Copypasta from the WFT Social OP

Hello Meta Knight Board Visitors!

And welcome to the Meta Knight Social/General Discussion Thread!​

This Thread Rules [WIP]
1. Every single Global Rule still applies here.
2. Deposit in this thread your random ideas, one-liner thoughts, what happened to you during the day, what is really grinding your gears, etc.
3. Because of that, there is no topic, so you do not need to be on-topic the whole time (ignoring others is rude though).
4. If you can avoid it, DO NOT MAKE A NEW THREAD. If the thought is short or you think it will not have much discussion, post it here.
4.1. Moderators may close threads and move discussions here.
5. If you do something that pleases the gods mods, You'll earn a golden star!. :D
6. Try to get along, we can remove the stars, too. >:C

Just an idea (or two), but if the OP is gonna be a compendium of MK players, why not gather FCs there too?

I know we all have them in our info boxes, but it still struck me as maybe a good thing to add to a list of players, who knows.

Maybe encouraging the optional addition to our profiles of the usual times one is active on Smash online. Matchmaking would be a neat function of the general gathering thread. Just some idle thoughts.

I'm pretty sure Kirby is a bad matchup for Meta Knight. Some of his attacks outrange his blade now, he's durable enough to withstand most of Meta Knight's kill attempts, and his Smash attacks and overall kill power is much stronger. If Kirby gets Meta's power, it's going to be hell since he can just keep hitting you with your own Mach Tornado.

But Mach Tornado is bad now, unless Kirby's has much less landing lag or something, you can stay grounded and punish.


Also, I think MK is bad in this game, he has nothing going on for him other than his 6 jumps...

Mach Tornado is good as a punisher or air-to-ground technique for someone rolling too much. I don't think Meta Knight is bad in this game at all. I heard someone say the same about Ike earlier.

nothing much!
games, video games, cool people
mean people, bad video games, taking things seriously
one; in 4th grade soccer
I like the idea of getting involved in certain communities but also kind of stand on sidelines.

Can we be like soul siblings or something?

We even match our social awkwardness!



On a bit more serious note, I feel OP could need a better formatting...

it could, but it's ok imo.

I'm sad this board is really quiet. I'm still having fun with Meta Knight, I'm even not losing! shame I haven't really found much else from what I've read here.

also maybe it's just coincidence with types of players but I swear everyone taunts at MK, it's like they're laughing at our fallen hero.

I noticed I'm just too used to Brawl's MK, and have some "automatic" responses to certain scenarios that don't work anymore due to speed and range.
I basically have to learn a new character (though forgetting Brawl's habits is difficult).

Other facts: I was top 10 on the all is brawl ladder for brawl at one point, and I beat several pr ranked people from norcal at the one offline event I went to.

I really enjoyed playing mk in brawl and I think he has some cool things he can do in this game as well. Does anyone mind if I write a guide on MK's grab game? I was messing around with it and its actually really cool. Also MK's forward throw does 3% against some character and 9% against others for some reason lol. Strange move.

btw if anyone wants to play just ask and I'll add

dude, do it. I had no idea about that with fthrow either, I just saw it did 3% on someone and was like "why is this even a move."

Also, I admire the strength needed to get WRs in mario kart. I am somewhat interested in speedrunning (kind of stopped once smash came out) and consider MK the most...intensive you can get, the precision is ridiculous.

Definitely feeling like learning a new character. I got more comfortable with his speed and are more cautious when picking my attacks.

Not that I am a superior high-level MK in this game, I consider my MK to be good though; we can play.

ggs guys

hope its less laggy another day

would anyone mind if i wrote a brief piece on how to juggle people

i feel like thats the core of mks game and an important part of every other character as well. Just to go over some simple options rather than always jumping at them and using an attack

Greetings, I’m making a new clan named TMT (The Money Team)

We have our emblem already and three members. We are currently recruiting members. I want the best smashers of every character (only a really good player per character ((example: Since I play Ganondorf, if you main Ganondorf you cannot join))) So if anyone is interested PM me and I will test you guys as I am the leader of the crew. Ign: Brad. Hope to make a good and fun crew as we hone our skills for improvement and reach to be the best :)!

Name: DiggersBoy (Carter, Diggers, The Pimp, either work, really)
Location: Bay Area in California. I like to call it the Bae Area.
Talents: Um... I'm Silver 3 in League? I play a lot of games with hopes of hitting competitive with it, although I only use what I deem are "unpopular", "underdeveloped", or just plain "crap" to win. MK falls in "underdeveloped", I feel he could be better if we actually try to develop him.
Likes: Playing underused characters. I ran Specs Machamp at the recent San Jose VGC. I main AP Alistar in League. I can only use the SSG in CS:GO. Things like that. I like Project M, I main the Dorf in that game. I don't have a Melee disc, or else I would be playing that game too.
Dislikes: Playing really popular characters. I never ran Mega Kangaskhan. I don't even know what's meta in League. I barely use AWP and never AK. I never liked Brawl Meta Knight. Actually, I never liked Brawl competitively. Before I knew about competitive Smash, I liked it just fine. I also don't like lag in general. 3DS connection lag, Smash 4 lag, League of Legends Lag, etc. Also, Fiora.
Goals: Get good. Simple goal, yet a lot of meaning.
Other facts: I like practicality. If someone does something in a very complex manner, and I can do it with 90% less work, they'll look like an idiot. So, practicality over all.


I like Drill Rush a lot. It could probably used in a lot of mixups. Meta Knight's current mix-up game revolves around dashing way too much. Priority should be to find movement options on this character. If I was playing against a Meta Knight, I would just run away every time he dashes. Boom, there goes Meta Knight's approach game.

Shoutout to a guy in For Glory I fought named Katakiri for showing me what a good Metaknight looks like. Gave my Bowser a hell of a time, and I'm finally convinced that he isn't completely worthless now.

Good God.
I do believe there's a difference between picking underused/underpowered characters
and bringing squirtguns to a warzone
But Godspeed if that thing actually managed to put a dent in anything that wasn't a Luvdisc

I believe meta knight is still viable, but i really hope he gets a patch sometime in the near future(increased range on his down and up air and down tilt) I love playing as meta, he's definitely one of my mains but his range really pisses me off sometimes. The fact that all his specials are easily punished now was a good enough nerf. His range DIDNOT need to get nerfed.

Going to go ahead and shamelessly advertise my tourney, because I don't have a Meta Knight yet. There are much more players still available, so non-Meta Knight players are welcome as well. Link in signature.

252+ SpA Choice Specs Machamp Focus Blast vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Mega Kangaskhan: 218-258 (120.4 - 142.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252 Atk Parental Bond Mega Kangaskhan Return vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Machamp: 153-181 (77.6 - 91.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 Atk Parental Bond Mega Kangaskhan Sucker Punch vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Machamp: 40-48 (20.3 - 24.3%) -- guaranteed 5HKO

252 Atk Parental Bond Mega Kangaskhan Power-Up Punch vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Machamp: 42-49 (21.3 - 24.8%) -- guaranteed 5HKO


One shots one of the biggest threats in the game and survives all of it's attacks in a 1v1. Plus the fact that it is a special Machamp plays heavy mindgames with the opponent because they would try to switch in a primarily defensive pokemon such as Ferrothorn before getting shot down with this

252+ SpA Choice Specs Machamp Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Ferrothorn: 236-280 (130.3 - 154.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

I signed up, but can't actually make the tourney date, as I'm on vacation. However, if it gets moved, then I'm all in for it.

The fact that all his specials are easily punished now was a good enough nerf. His range DIDNOT need to get nerfed.
I think the biggest thing range-wise that needs to be buffed for MK is his Upsmash. MK's Uptilt has hitboxes to his sides, why can't his Upsmash, as well?

The range actually bothers me less than I thought it would. I think the only time that I got mad at the range nerfs was when my fair range was miscalculated and I didn't hit the other guy charging his Fsmash :'(
However, the range nerfs affect me a lot in the long run, because it kills a lot of my options (For example, Upsmash)
