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.

Pretty huge amount of possibilities there. I laughed when you kept hitting the sandbag with the knee. You could get it pretty far like that! But, this is youtube material. After all, this IS the Flash portal.

yeah i agree with seymourglass26

its not that the knee isn't a good move but its not "industructable". its easily avoidable and if you ask me its a typical newb move that anyone can catch onto if they wanted to. But then again if you are a newb then i can see how one might get all excited over getting one of these off. Every character has got their own abused moves that can be made into a flash like this one but that doesn't mean they are unbeatable. Sry if i come off a little strong but i have been an ongoing SSBM fan waiting for brawl to come out and just wanted to set the record straight. I think if you were going for an accurate abused move/glitch you should try making one on wave dashing next time. although ive seen enough of those videos made before it really is something that can give a player an unbeatable edge if you perfected right. neways overall id say it wasn't a bad movie but it seems like this movie was more for your love of the knee then to entertain us, thats all.

I'm sorry, but I can't let this go.

I admit, it was a cute submission. I admit, it is a powerful move. I admit, you have good experience. HOWEVER. You openly telling us that you base everything you do on the knee... That's fine, it's up to you, but it may be one of the biggest mistakes you will ever make. These games are designed for the demonstration of skill through fast fingers on the controller, a keen eye, and knowledge of your opponent. I actually have a friend who has a love to use the very knee move you mentioned. I have suffered many KOs this way, but the more I lose, the stronger I get. I have eventually learned that the knee can be countered in enough ways to grant me victory, even if only sometimes. The reason I think this would be a big mistake on your part is the fact you are not trying anything new it seems. If you are, I'm sorry, it just really seems that way. Please just realize that basing all of (or nearly all of) your skill on ONE controller maneuver is actually considered a novice tactic. Like in the original SSB, when Fox's laser could stun, somebody positions themselves just right, and fires Fox's laser over and over, preventing our movement for a bit. They don't do ANYTHING else, and were eventually knocked down hard, because my friends and I just said "Screw This" and formed a temporary alliance until he was out of lives, or until he got the hint. I'm letting you know right now, this is a dangerous risk you are taking. Once SSB: Brawl comes out, there will probably be enough ways to counter the knee, or C. Falcon might not even be in there. I read your comment where you said-

"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'm not saying that. Even if I did, we wouldn't know the outcome until we played.
If you win, you proved a point. I have no problem with it, and I'm just gonna move on. If I won, I hope you understand that not expanding your tactics is a big risk.
I'm not going to laugh at you, or brag.

Peace out bud.
