A forward aerial (前空中攻撃, Front/Forward midair attack; commonly abbreviated as Fair or f-air, and referred to as AttackAirF internally) is an aerial attack that is performed in midair by pressing the attack button and tilting the control stick in the direction the character is facing. Its official term varies between titles; it is known as a front midair attack in Super Smash Bros. Melee, a front air attack in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. 4, and a forward air attack in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Forward aerials are usually not as strong as back aerials, though they have larger hitboxes most of the time, making them useful for edgeguarding.
