Meta Knight (SSB4)/Forward tilt

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki


Meta Knight slashes twice horizontally, and finishes with an upwards slash. This move's good range, fast start-up and endlag, and high base knockback make it a potent spacing option. With three separate slashes, it functions much like a jab. As such, the first two hits can be used to lead into other moves, most notably Shuttle Loop for a KO. This, however, isn't guaranteed, and works only as a mix-up. The move's trajectory can be used to set-up edgeguards, and starts KOing at the ledge at about 160%.
