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.


The most unique quality of Yoshi is his shield, which holds many properties that are unique to Yoshi-- such as its hitstun reduction, inability to jump out of shield, and parrying. Additionally, Yoshi does not have an up-b that helps his recovery. Instead this is balanced by his double jump reaching very high, as well as containing 'super armor', which means that attacks will damage Yoshi, but the hitstun and knockback are lessened VERY greatly depending on percentage.
