The cape is only as useful as about every other move. Used right its a good move. Used wrong and its usefulness goes poof.

Most important thing about using the cape is being unpredictable with it. If you ALWAYS use it, people expect it and start doing things to avoid being screwed by it like using Up-Bs to recover in reverse or straight up. Also will use B-airs instead of F-air so you're hit when you turn them around.

Be unpredictable, and it can be an evil tool instead of just a minor hindrance.

You do realize that if someone like squirtle or Marth Up-B the other way while Mario fakes a cape they're dead right?
That's a 50-50 chance instakill.
If I predict Mario's cape with an reverse Up-B, I hit him with a dolphin slash, probably do 13% damage or something, If I fail on my prediction and Mario doesn't cape I die.
"Every other move" doesn't have that massive of a killing potential.

There is 6 frams of lag even on green level. So what its 2 frams for shielding so add 6 more making it 8. Jumping from 2 to 8 you can feel a big diffrents.

So true. Personally Ijust can't get out of the habit of pressing R at the last possible moment I see an attack. That pretty much screws me up right, there.

@ Iclim; We still haven't had those Marth dittos D:

I think you can send your Wii to Nintendo and they'll clean it or at least make sure you can play Brawl on it.



Signature goes here!

Haven't been here in a long time. Over 350 posts long, I'm pretty sure that's the longest I've ever been away from these boards. Tennis has pretty much taken over my life :P.

Feinting it follows under using it right. Sometimes not using the move is just as good as using it.

Plus with both characters you mentioned, FLUDD + Edgehog alone is usually enough for Mario to gimp them. You can also change the main direction both those moves travel in. Holding straight up results in very little horizontal movement for both (Up+Back for Waterfall).

Bad recoveries are bad no matter what you're against~ The only 2 Characters completely screwed by using Up-B in reverse should be Peach and Kirby, both of which are the only characters that can't grab the ledge during their Up-B while turned away (Which annoys the living hell out of me). Tethers can be turned around while the tether is reaching out, but why bother when edge hogging them is easy as is.

If the cape were as good as everyone thought, wouldn't Mario be higher in any tier list? I've noticed Shea doesn't really try to cape me anymore and usually just goes for a spike instead.~

Oh, I forgot to mention I ninjad my nephews Wii for the time being whilst mine is in need of repair. Luckily I had a save file on an SD card so my code should stay the same. It might not but it should~

Fun games all. Sorry I had to run Twilit, I had something to do and I wanted one more match.

Your Samus is an interesting matchup.



I think my nephews Wii lags more then mine... or maybe its just my imagination :x

I know that first match against Truck was just horrid on my end. Dedede seemed to have a mind of his own and liked to do things I didn't tell him to do ; ;
