Can someone tell me how to chose between Melee Link's two tipes of jab? User:Firewario user talk:Firewario 9th April 2009 23:24 (UTC)

Weak attack[edit]

I might be wrong, but I think I can recall it being called "Weak attack" somewhere officially. Anyone else recognising it? – SmiddleT 07:22, 3 July 2011 (EDT)

In Melee, you got a bonus called "Wimpy KO" for KOing someone with a "weak attack", which was referring to KOing someone with your jab. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 07:45, 3 July 2011 (EDT)
That's weird, I could've sworn that I've heard it somewhere more notable... – SmiddleT 18:49, 3 July 2011 (EDT)

Meta Knight and notable neutrals[edit]

I just noticed that below the Brawl neutral aerials, there is a section about metaknight's infinite jab. It's not an infinite jab, the animation shows 10 slashes and You can keep it going if you hold the attack button. That's just a consecutive jab!

Also, I noticed that on some other articles, such as forward aerial, there is a section on notable attacks. Do we need that here?75.85.64.155 12:39, 26 January 2014 (EST)

MK's jab is an infinite in all its technical aspects, so that's how we should probably treat it.
I'm not sure we need a section on notable jabs (are there really any?). Toomai Glittershine ??? The Frivolous 12:46, 26 January 2014 (EST)
Ike's jab is most definitely notable, especially in vBrawl. — Jigglypuff the Magic Dragon (talk) Jigglypuff the Magic Dragon sig.png 14:45, 26 January 2014 (EST)

"Standard attack"[edit]

I thought "standard attack" referred to any ground-based A move, to distinguish them from special attacks. Am I mistaken? – Smiddle 05:31, 9 October 2015 (EDT)

I think it officially refers to a jab, but I have heard it used to describe tilts before. Not specials or smashes though. SerpentKing (talk) 05:34, 9 October 2015 (EDT)
Officially, it means a jab. Unofficially, it means any attack you can do with the A button (i.e. jab, tilts, smashes and aerials). Zyrac (talk) 05:49, 9 October 2015 (EDT)
