A complete compendium for Super Smash Brothers Melee


Short hop
The act of pressing the jump button and letting go before the character leaves the ground. This will result in a jump that is lower than a normal jump.


Samus is a very linear character, as many of her hitboxes only extend out in straight lines. Although Samus is one of the slowest characters in the game, her defense and control of the pace in the match allow her to be a viable defensive character. Samus can control wide ranges of space by using missile cancelling-- and can control close range with her up-b and tilts.
