Super Smash Bros. Tips

Smash Advanced Techniques 3
Attack out of Shield:
You can Up-B or Usmash directly out of your shield. Most useful for characters without fast shield grabs, like Samus and Link.

Attack on the run:
You can Up-B or Usmash in the middle of a dash.

Jigglypuff's Rising Pound:
By holding up after the B input for pound, you can make Jigglypuff rise. This gives Jigglypuff substantial horizontal recovery.

Samus's Bomb Jump:
Samus can increase her horizontal recovery slightly by using her bomb in midair.
*Note* If Samus hasn't used her second jump, it is erased after using a bomb.

Mario and Luigi's Tornado Recovery:
Mashing B during their tornado moves (down-b) allows Mario and Luigi to gain height. Holding a direction will also cause them to move a bit diagonally. Improves vertical recovery and also horizontal recovery to some extent.

Changing direction in midair:
Some characters cannot turn around in midair with their up-b, like Samus. However, she can use her charge shot instead to turn around.

Pikachu's Extended Vertical Up-b:
Pikachu can extend his up-b : This variant allows Pikachu to do the extended up-b twice vertically.

Jab Cancel:
Pikachu, Mario, Ness, and Luigi can cancel their jabs using a throw. Useful for throw setups.
