Advanced techniques

Here are some techniques that will help you improve as a player. Some are more useful than others, but all are generally signs of an advanced, tournament level, player. Some of these moves don't even appear to be real moves, but are instead ways of manipulating the games physics & controls.

  • L-canceling

A technique to speed the recovery of an aerial attack. To perform, Press L, R or Z when landing from an aerial attack. To be more precise, when you see puffs of dust surrounding the character.

Used so you can attack instantly after an aerial attack. Very useful with, for example, Link's Down+A aerial which has a long recovery time.

  • Wave-dashing

A technique that lets you glide and attack at the same time. Very difficult to master. Point your control stick diagonally without moving. Then jump, and immediately press L or R. This will make you glide across the ground in clouds of dust.

Used for showing off. Seriously? It's great for hit-and-run tactics. Wave-dashing is as fast as running or even faster with some characters. You can wave dash forward, attack with a fast move and wave-dash backward without fear of retaliation most of the time. You can also edge-hog (more on that later) immediately by wave-dashing off the ledge.

  • Triangle-jumping

A delayed wave-dash which moves you with less horizontal distance. Like the wave-dash, jump then quickly air-dodge into the ground. Unlike the wave-dash, a triangle jump is performed after your feet leave the ground. Controls more accurately than wave-dashing.

  • Edge-hogging

Hogging a ledge. Jump backwards to a ledge and you will hang from it. Another method is wave-dashing into the ledge.

Purpose is to prevent foes from grabbing it so that they fall to their demise.

  • Shield-grabbing

Grab while your shield is on. While shielding, press A and you'll instantly grab. If you're being aerial attacked, your opponent must use L-cancel or you can just shield and grab. Shield grabbing is more efficient than normal grabbing with the Z-button.

  • Short-hopping

A low jump. The easy way is to tap the X or Y button light and fast. Forget the other method. You can use an aerial attack faster than in a normal jump. Very useful with, for example, Marth's aerial A. It's also used for comboing.

  • Dash-canceling

Stop while dashing. Press Down when you dash to slow or completely stop movement. To fake out dashing and surprise your foe. Not that useful.

  • Crouch-canceling

Crouch to receive less damage and knockback. Press Down when being hit. Protect yourself from being hit off the stage. Useful with lighter characters.

  • Dash-dancing

Dashing in either direction. Quickly tap the control stick left and right. Useful if your airborne opponent is trying to avoid you.

  • Standing dash-grab

Grabbing in a standing position while running. While running, press Up then immediately Z. It's faster than a normal grab since you're grabbing in a standing position instead of a lower position.


Short hop, fast fall, L-Cancel. Use the directions above to do a short hop, followed by your aerial attack of choice, a fast fall (hitting down to make your character drop rapidly in free fall), and L-Cancel to recover from any recovery time your aerial attack may have. The ultimate, most efficient way to utilize the short hop aerial attack.

A series of videos was also created in 2006 to help aspiring players learn these professional techniques with ease.
