I love coming back and looking at this thread. I love how disjointed some of these moves are. <3

You all should be ashamed of yourselves... using a character with moves as safe as these... broke

He can't. The only way to "Bomb jump" is to just hold on to the bomb as it explodes on you after a up B. And the bomb fuse is long so it's situational.

There might be a way to try dropping the bomb then using Nair/Dair to hit it but that might just put one in a worse position.

Upwards Light Toss: 19 Frames total. On the 10th frame, the bomb hitbox is out and the item is in the air.
Upwards Smash Toss: 19 Frames total. On the 10th frame, the bomb hitbox is out and the item is in the air.

Fun Fact: If you shield roll all the way to the edge of a platform(having your back towards the edge), you can throw a bomb downwards without hitting yourself. However, if you face TOWARDS the ledge and throw a bomb downwards, you will hit yourself.

hey thx a lot for doing this. i would like you to investigate one thing with the boomerang if it isnt too much trouble. after throwing the boomerang there is a number of frames that if you get hit it disappears even though he has already thrown it out . it can get maybe a platforms distance away and if you get hit it during that time it disappears but id like to see how many frames it is.

Young link is so awesome. Who cares about how weak his attacks are? Much more agile, and strong chars are useless against him if you can't hit him. Besides, he has several kill moves :grin:

Anyone knows how many frames it takes for Young Link to Z-Drop the bomb while in the air? Also would love to know the frame count of each directional bomb throw, airborn and on the ground.

Could anyone point out to me where the meteor smash hit box is located on the down air? I was thinking it was just the middle and top hit boxes but I'm not sure.

The top hitbox is the meteor smash. It's really weird and hard to land. I suppose if you have a fox above you, then you can dair underneath him and let him fall onto the meteor, but actually getting a kill like that requires really difficult positioning and is really situational. Armada did it to hbox in CEO losers finals, I believe.

What I need to know is the difference between the other two hitboxes. I've been experimenting with dair in training mode and I know one kills earlier than the other but i can't tell which. At 62%, ground level bomb to down air at full hop height sometimes kills training mode puff at 62%, but sometimes doesn't come close. Can anyone explain all the hitboxes to me?

One of my questions was answered in a post in this thread, but the Z-Bomb Drop still remains a mystery to me.

Q__Q
It's instant. Takes 1 frame. Can aerial/dj immediately after.

If only he could DJLand
To be fair you could probably pull off similar stuff with him.

So I'm super confused by something.

This is the frame data I found on Y. Link's nair:

Total: 39
Hit: 4-27
IASA: 36
Auto cancel: <3 32>
Landlag: 15
Lcanceled: 7

--Initial hit--
Shield stun: 13
Shield hit lag: 6
Advantage: 0

--Sex Kick--
Shield stun: 9
Shield hit lag: 4





Isn't the shield advantage wrong? If you have 7 frames of landing lag and put them in shieldstun for 13 frames, if you're frame perfect (land nair the frame before you hit the ground) you should have a 6 frame advantage, right?

Sure, there's 6 frames of shield hit lag, but both characters suffer that.

These frame data threads are notoriously wrong when it comes to shield stuff. YL's clean nair does 7 frames of shield hitlag and 7 frames of shieldstun. If you land the frame after hitlag ends, your opponent will go through 7 frames of shieldstun at the exact same time that you have 7 frames of landing lag. You will both be actionable on the same frame and thus have an advantage of 0.

This thread lacks information (IASA data) and is FULL of incorrect data.

The following moves are 1 frame shorter in total than listed:
Dtilt - 39 frames (not 40)
Utilt - 29 frames (not 30)
Jab 2 - 21 frames (not 22)
Jab 3 - 49 frames (not 50)
Dash attack - 53 frames
Dair - 89 frames
Uair - 69 frames
Air tether - 59 frames
Airdodge - 49 frames
Back roll & Forward roll - 37 frames
Down b - 39 frames
Boomerang catch - 19 frames
Grounded and aerial up b - 79 frames
Standing grab - 84 frames
Dash grab - 94 frames
Arrow firing - 24 frames
Bair - 39 frames
Nair - 39 frames
Dsmash - 49 frames
Fsmash 1 - 49 frames
Fsmash 2 - 39 frames




Side b has no data on it for some reason, the boomerang is produced on frame 27 and the animation lasts 45 frames.
Aerial up b's hitbox data is also wrong on hit 2, it hits on frames 8-13, 16-20, 22-27, 31-37, 46-50 (2nd hitbox is listed as 16-21).
Grounded up b's hitbox data is wrong, it hits on frames 8-44, not 8-42.
Fair's hitbox is wrong, it hits on frames 14-33, not 14-32.
Dsmash hitbox 1 is wrong, it hits on frames 9-11, not 9-12.
Uair hitbox is wrong, it hits on frames 5-49, not 5-50.
Dair hitbox is wrong, it hits on frames 13-64, not 13-65.
