You don't? Ok, let's take Ness's dtilt for example. Do the move once, and after the attack there are frames that just show him returning to normal stance, correct? Well do try the attack again. The IASA frames are the frames of the attack where instead of using those frames that return him to his original stance, they are interrupted by a new attack. Basically, it's just a way to do stuff faster but cutting out unnecessary frames. Shade487z/SeniorSombra! 18:00, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

I would say this should go back to "Interruptible As Soon As frames" as the acronym that's almost always used for it becomes more evident ("IASA frames"). Miles (talk) 11:40, 28 December 2010 (EST)

Just because the acronym is in caps doesn't mean the phrase is in caps (ASAP).MegaTron1XD:p 11:42, 28 December 2010 (EST)


Marked as a stub because "selective IASA" needs expansion. Shark (talk) 16:44, 25 November 2011 (EST)

What kind of expansion? I don't see what else could be added that wasn't said earlier in the article, other than examples of it. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 17:00, 25 November 2011 (EST)

Support Far too many meta-game words thrown around on this wiki. The new title helps put our vocabulary into English. --Havoc48 >:D!!! 12:15, 4 November 2012 (EST)
Support The article title is strange for a specific group of frames, interruptibility can make more sense. --RoyboyX Talk 12:19, 4 November 2012 (EST)
Support "Interruptibility" is just a weird and confusing title to have. Air Conditioner AC.png Goo goo g'joob. 12:36, 4 November 2012 (EST)

I would rather see it moved to IASA frames, as that's what the concept is called, and is a less cluttered jumble of words. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 12:43, 4 November 2012 (EST)

I agree with Toast; It would make things a lot easier to link to. Thherefore, I support Toast's idea. DarkFox01, ETC. 13:23, 4 November 2012 (EST)
On second thought, IASA frames does work. Support rename to IASA frames. --RoyboyX Talk 13:25, 4 November 2012 (EST)
(edit conflict) I don't care what we move it to, as long as it works and it's not here. This seems to work the best, so support. Air Conditioner AC.png Goo goo g'joob. 13:28, 4 November 2012 (EST)

Keep IASA is a far more common name in the community. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 13:26, 4 November 2012 (EST)

Would you support a rename to IASA frames? --RoyboyX Talk 13:27, 4 November 2012 (EST)
No, I think the title is better as is than as an abbreviation. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 13:27, 4 November 2012 (EST)
IASA frames seems fine to me. I think I've heard it way more than the currect title, too.--Wolfsig.png PSIWolf The one and only! 13:29, 4 November 2012 (EST)
IASA is an abbreviation of the current title. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 13:31, 4 November 2012 (EST)
Compare to the page SHFFL redirects to. Mr. AnonAnon.pngtalk 13:31, 4 November 2012 (EST)
SHFFL includes every word in the abbreviation, IASA frames misses out the last word, so an abbreviation is more appropriate here. "Interruptible as soon as frames" just looks like an incomplete sentence, Short hop fast-fall l-cancel looks fine, barring the lowercase L. I would, BTW, support capitalizing that L, as it's named after the capitalized L button. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 13:38, 4 November 2012 (EST)

Rename to IASA frames as it will be shorter. Dots The Doom NintenNESsprite.png 13:36, 4 November 2012 (EST)

Move it, I don't know why I let this discussion happen: As I understand it, the term "IASA frames" is falling out of favour with the community in preference to just using "interruptible" or the like. In addition, the term "IASA frames" is bulky, confusing, and not entirely correct; being interruptible is a property of the move, not the frames. Toomai Glittershine ???

FAF vs. IASA[edit]

This page should be turned into FAF and we should start a stub on IASA considering the two mean different but very similar things. GoldenJay 11:41:10, 19 February 2018 (MT)

I'd rather not make it easier for people to incorrectly believe the two terms mean different things. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Irrepressible 06:28, 20 February 2018 (EST)
