Daisy (SSBU)/Forward aerial
Also known as Crown Knuckle (クラウンナックル), Daisy grabs the crown off her head and strikes with it in a vertical arc with red and turquoise magic sparkles emerging from the crown.
Forward aerial has the slowest startup out of all her aerial attacks. However, it is her strongest aerial if Daisy hits the opponent with the sweetspot hitbox. Her arm possesses a sourspot that deals 1% less damage, and KOs much later. Forward aerial has the second least landing lag, overshadowed by her neutral and up aerial.
Daisy can edgeguard opponents by performing a forward aerial. Due to Daisy extending her arm, ground-floated forward aerial or short hop forward aerial is safe on shield when Daisy drifts away. Daisy can whiff punish opponents with forward aerial. However, the opponent can avoid the attack by shielding, rolling away or counterattacking.
Daisy can finish her combos with a forward aerial to mix up her combo finishers with dash attack or grab. Daisy can kill confirm an opponent from a forward aerial from a down tilt or the 2 frame punishing down tilt. Forward aerial can kill confirm from down aerial. Forward aerial can kill confirm from a thrown turnip. However, if the opponent can reflect the turnip, there are possibilities that the turnip hits Daisy, Daisy clanks the turnip or Daisy recatches the turnip and hits the opponent.
