Advanced techniques mainly differ from standard techniques in that their presence was not discovered or expected by the game's designers. This often manifests itself in the form of advanced techniques being results of oversights or glitches, such as wavedashing and momentum cancelling. A strong or properly-applied advanced technique can radically alter a character's metagame - for example, the short hop fast fall l-cancel provides a significant speed boost to a player's aerial assault and helps to patch up holes in slower characters' offenses. Certain characters rely heavily on their specific advanced techniques, such as the Ice Climbers' chain grabs and desynching techniques, and Fox's waveshine combos in Melee. Reliance of these "exploits" to shape top-level metagames is a common source of discontent among new and casual players.
