Falco (SSBM)/Up aerial
Falco kicks above himself whilst extending his tail upwards. This move has two hits, and is somewhat weaker than Fox's up aerial. The move is rarely used against fastfallers as a KO move because of this, though it is sometimes used as a powerful combo tool to lead into other moves, especially his Down aerial. It is more effective as a KO move against floaties, as it can be used as an alternative to his shine to Star KO on stages with low ceilings, such as Yoshi's Story and Pokémon Stadium. It can be used as a followup to shine against many characters. Falco can use it to techchase fastfallers on a platform above him, because of its tall second hitbox (Falco can short hop and stay below the platform when doing this). It can also situationally be used as a followup to an up throw, depending on the opponent's DI.
