I'm getting pretty tired of responding to the comments, so let me clear some things up. I've been playing in international smash tournaments for about three years now. I don't claim to be a pro, or close, but in the very least I have a good understanding of the intricacies of this game.

I know what l-cancelling is, but I didn't find it necessary to ensure that all of my footage was integrated with it, because these aren't real matches. They are staged for the sake of footage.

These combos can be teched and DI'd out of. I know that. That doesn't mean the knee is any less effective or any bit of a 'noob move.' The point is that you juggle your opponent and knee them while they are in hitlag, therefore giving them no chance to respond.

I did not have to read the manual to figure out how to knee. It didn't not take me years to perfect. Please try to pick up on the humor and sarcasm, if only for a second.

If you feel the need to post about how good you are at this game and how easy you can beat me, please don't. I'm just going to be a dick and say it- I will beat you hands down. I don't care what you say. The people who trash-talk are the ones that suck the most.

oh, and also. Ganon can't do the knee.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

nice, but lacking

heh, decent move, but really nothing special IMO. each character has their own version of that kind of attack really, falcons is simply easier to execute on the fly. any player still on the ground can avoid it easily enough if they are still on the ground using the shield + -> move.

Until I saw this movie, I'd never known there was such power in The Knee to be harnessed. I really needed a decent air finisher when playing as Falcon, and this fixed me right up. Thanks, and if you discover any other interesting techniques, please don't hesitate to make a video like this showing how to use it.
One showing the proper usage of Mario's meteor smash might not be a bad idea... You'd be surprised how many people don't realized the untapped power that's there. ^_^

this = funny

SSBM on newgrounds is too good. The reason for the graphics score is because the only art is the word screens, but the video parts do look good. I got a zero-death quad knee off one time, but only cuz my bud was being lazy enough to let it happen.

but really, this shits funny

I'm going to be using the word "Knee" for awhile now. :(
Loved the movie.

I see nothing in the video that is impressive except your mastery of the Shffl. Any moderate player can dodge the combos easily. Continue making SSBM training videos and maybe one day you will make a decent one.

Wow, this flew right over your head didn't it? I realize not all of this stuff is practical and yes, a lot of it can be tech'd/DI'd out of. It's meant for humor
