Sheik

  • Forward smash:
    • Buff The first hit's closest hitbox launches at a higher angle (26° → 35°), and both it and the farthest hitbox have reduced set knockback (62/45 → 47/30), allowing it to connect more reliably into the second hit.
    • Buff The second hit has larger hitboxes (3.5u/4u → 4.8u/4.6u) with altered placements (X offset: -1.3u/5.2u → -1.6u/5.6u; Y offset: 0u → 1u/-0.1u), increasing its range.

  • Buff Down smash has less startup (frame 12 → 10), with its total duration reduced as well (FAF 46 → 44).
  • Buff Forward aerial has less startup (frame 10 → 7), with its total duration reduced as well (FAF 48 → 45). It also autocancels earlier as a result (frame 42 → 39). This makes it more reliable as an approach tool.
  • Buff Back aerial has more knockback scaling (100 → 105).
