Meta Knight (SSBB)/Down special

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki


The attacking hitbox after reappearing.

This move is known as the Dimensional Cape. It involves Meta Knight disappearing into his cape and reappearing a ways further in any direction, depending on which direction the Control Stick is held. If the attack button is held when he reappears, he will slash the opponent with moderate knockback. Competitively, this move is sparingly used offensively, due to the slash being extremely slow and punishable compared to Meta Knight's other options, as well as the fact that the move always sends Meta Knight into helpless state when used in midair. The move is primarily used as a recovery move at certain angles from the edge, and can cover decent distance relatively quickly.
