SSBM: The Knee

Author Comments


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.



I remember watching this when it came out, and I thought, "Huh, cool." And because of this movie I was able to finally beat Giga Bowser, and if ANYONE paid ANY attention at all, you'd learn that "The Knee" is quite possible one of the most powerful mid-air moves in SSB. It has the capability to knock out opponents in two to three hits, it's no noob move, it's no cheat move, just 'cause you can't pull off doesn't mean it's not a good move...
By the way Afro-Ninja, if you happen to have brawl, give me your friend code, I can give you a good match.


You should make an updated version for brawl, because ive noticed that the knee is just a little bit slower and the technique for saving your self with a knee doesnt necessarily work. Just a suggestion. Phenominal work though, and it would be a pleasure to fight you in Brawl someday. Keep up the kneeing.


if only he was in brawl

nice vid

after seeing this, me and my friend started using captain falcon in order to try the move, and it really works well!
i still prefer mario though, captain falcon jumps weird.

i clearly need to use this against my bro

Very impressive(both move and explanation). Though my brother came and watch the last half, he said that such a move was stupid and not worth replacing all of your other moves with "the knee". He was also expecting you to say something to the effect of "the knee" is no match for the power of a "Chuck Norris Roundhouse Kick". But what does he know?
