I've been working on a video that shows the moves visually of what Cyphus explained in his guide. It also includes details and instructions on how to perform them and a few things of my own in there. I finally finished it and the video is below. The video is a total of 10:40 minutes of nothing but demonstrations and information on how to perform certain moves with Doctor Mario. This video is meant for people with basic knowledge of the advanced tactic's terms (you can watch it anyways too :)). My two brothers DaShizWiz and KeepSpeedN helped me as being my opponent and whatnot but all of these demonstrations are performed by me. Enjoy. I hope you learn something >_>':

NOTE: Please watch the entire video!!

Doctor Mario Demonstrations performed by: SmashMac

Playing the opponent: DaShizWiz and KeepSpeedN

Explainations for each move are from Cyphus
Check out his
"Not to be taken Orally" Doc. Guide v5.0

hahah. dude that was awesome. I'll admit better than i thought. lol ^^

I love the music. and i like how you worded everything out before showing cuz i was thinking that someone wanting to learn doc can just Pause it right there and take notes, haha.

The chain grabbing scenes were nice, and i LOVE when it goes "STOP"....*DOC PUNCH* Hammer time" XD too sexy.

i think this should be stickied, personally, its very useful for starting docs and even ones w/ experience to see how things should look.


PTP FTW!!

Wow, that's pretty impressive Smashmac. Probably one of the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow instructional vids I've yet seen. Props to you; this should be a godsend for anyone trying to pick up Doc.

The only thing I thought was weird was that you were doing d-throw chaingrabs on Falcon and Fox; they've got to be at around 90+ % for that to work comfortably, I think. . .I thought u-throws usually work a lot better.

You should have put in some Captain Jack shffl'd u-airs -> up-angled f-smash combos; that combo sequence is hot stuff. :chuckle: Good job on the vid, though. Very nice.

So. Cal, where da playas play
this vid is effing great, but i cant seem to be able to double jump after a SH bair or WD from a SH bair either, do u have to l-cancel or sumthing?

also when i am ledge jumping with pills or any airs he doesnt cancel and grab the ledge, is there sumthing im missing here? o.o this is frustrating

In both cases, you're not doing b-air or firing the Pills/executing aerials fast enough.

To SHABAWD properly, you have to short hop, and do the b-air as fast as possible while you're rising. . .basically, slide your right thumb from the jump button to the A button ASAP. Same goes with edge-cancelled Pills/aerials.

Thanks guys :). Lolz to maelstrom that would've been cool. Maelstrom beat me to answering your question h0l1c XD. Oh yea Maelstrom, it was at high percents that I was doing the d-throw's on Fox and CF btw :). Good stuff.

Holy **** SmashMac, that video was awesome. It looked professional and everyhting was explained very well. I even learned some new stuff. I wish this video was around when I first started playing Doc, LOL.
Good stuff man, Props to you and your bros for helping you out. Oh yea, and finally you got some good music. LOL. We have to record some doc dittos and stuff when I practice with you guys again.

Pretty sure the dthrow chains start at like 70% on the FFers. anyways... I'll edit this after I watch it.

Okay. Really nice. Though I have a few suggestions in case you wanted to maybe update it slighty and release a final version. Though this one was pretty **** good.

- Add drillgrabbing
- Perfect wavedashing
- Explain that Dair shouldn't be FFed/ Don't FF fair as soon as you can.
- If you wanted to be more in depth, try to add some rough %s for the chainthrows
- Try to edit out the clips of you not getting something.
- PILL RUSH/ staggering pills!
- Maybe some dthrows to fair
- Jab -> grab/dsmash
- Explain how to jc grabs
- The fact that you can actually sweetspot farther out from the edge than most things hit -- using his snap.

Some of the things I listed of course aren't as good. But at least add in pill rush if you ever intend to update it :O

Either way... nice.

Thanks Gea for all of your advice on a "possible" update (Maybe someday I'll make a part 2 lolz) and your comments :). Thanks to everyone else as well :chuckle:

Great video man. It helps out alot to see these things performed visually instead of just reading it. Very nice job. I don't see how the thing could've been done better, besides probably naming the certain percentages at which u can chainthrow oppenets. Still a fine piece a work. Keep it up.

I know a lot of people want this to be stickied in the Doc forum, but the problem is that this thread itself is for a video and thus belongs in the Video Discussion forum. So, I will be moving it there. But to provide a little compensation, Cyphus's guide already includes links to this thread, and I added a little note in the title to point it out.

Awesome, I'm just starting to pick up Doc because he's pretty cool if you don't abuse that ghei cape. This'll help me get better with him, thanks.

Wow. This vid is gold. You pretty much accomplished what the "advanced how to play" topic has taken months to do, and based it on a character.

Really great stuff $Mac.

Apply the MegaVitamin tricks to your opponent. Isn't that pretty much pill-rushing :confused:. You're going to perform the moves according to how you play, regardless. There are not really specific ways of performing sequences of pill-rushing. Everyone pill-rushes differently, whether it be place-boing, Decoy Vitamins or etc.. Use you're own creativity and just apply what you know for now ;) (not trying to sound like a douche bag).

If infact in the future I do make some sort of update, I'll be sure to add in pill-rushing :chuckle: for those who would like to see it. Thanks for the advice on that ;).

I can't get it. FileFront is being gay. Just let me know when it's on Google Video or You Tube.

Since people are wanting Percentages for CG'ing and whatnot and Pill rushing, I've decided that I will make an update soon. For now, please learn from and watch the current version ^^.
