Oppose Deletion - Kperfekt Talk Is Cheap... But I Am Not. 15:59, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Give an actual reason as to why the article shouldn't be deleted instead of just saying "oppose deletion". Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 16:12, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Oppose - This is a unique property of Falcon's hitboxes, and while it has not seen widespread implementation it's generated enough discussion and relevance to be given it's own article. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 17:02, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

What? Marth's dair also needs to be sweetspotted to spike, but it doesn't have an article. It could easily be merged with Falcon's SSBM page. Sir Anon the great 23:40, August 2, 2010 (UTC)
First, it doesn't have it's own name, nor has it created discussion to the point of creating notability as you never intend not to sweet spot it. Two, it could be merged, but then it would require a sub-sub-subsection, and I would rather avoid a redirect linking to that low of a section. We're after accessibility of information and redirect and create that low of a section for a rather commonly discussed term/technique is not helping that goal.

Oppose While this is not the only spike hitbox in the game, it has generated more discussion than any other specific hitbox in Melee (to my knowledge) and has become notable enough as to earn its own nickname. The Knee has an article because of its notability and similar to The Knee article, the information here would be more suitable in its own article instead of being on Captain Falcon's SSBM page.

"The Knee has an article because of its notability and similar to The Knee article". what? The knee article IS the knee article.--MegaTron1XD:p 03:27, August 3, 2010 (UTC)
Um, did you not read the rest of the sentence afterward? I am saying that this article is similar to the Knee Smash article as the information would be more suitable in its own article instead of being on Captain Falcon's SSBM page. Read the entire sentence properly before trying to misconstrue what I said. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 10:58, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose- Unique property, notable, and everything OT said.--MegaTron1XD:p 03:27, August 3, 2010 (UTC)

I vote to keep this because it's a good discovery for a good move choice, like the Ken Combo. Doc King (talk) 13:15, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

This article should be kept. As previously stated, the move has generated enough discussion to warrant its own article. Techniques like this, such as The Knee, do need their own article because someone searching for the move itself will more than likely go straight for the move, and not the character who uses it.

Deletion: The Sequel[edit]

To preface this, I understand that we have previously voted to save this same page from deletion as seen above, but that was six years ago. Since then, as clearly stated in the article itself, I don't believe this property, in the one game it's appeared, has seen the use that warrants an entire page dedicated to it. All the SmashBoards discussions cited are from time far gone, and given the minuscule impact it's actually made, I'd say we should come back to this page and delete it for real this time, maybe relocate a truncated description of this property to the relevant moveset table on the Captain Falcon page.

Highly duplicative of Captain Falcon (SSBM)/Down aerial. Implies a separate page just for one of the hitboxes isn't very useful. Merging this to the /Down aerial page, and leaving a redirect here, sounds like a good idea. ライケン Rigel Kent (talk) 00:33, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

Oppose Just because you don't believe this property doesn't mean it is warranted a deletion. While this made a little impact, it still generated enough discussion to warrant its own article. There were still some comments about landing Nipple Spike. Very situational, but doable. I searched it up by Google & smashboard; it still it has some decent results (this could be the similar case for Space Animal Slayer). Not sure for merging though. Luigi540 (talk) 03:34, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

Merge with Captain Falcon's down aerial moveset page. When deletion was first brought up, moveset subpages were not around, but nowadays, they are. That page seems like a perfect place to store this information. Actually, after thinking about it, the information already on that page makes this page a little redundant. John John3637881 Signature.png PK SMAAAASH!! 10:49, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

My input doesn't count for much but as per John's argument I am now definitely more in favor of merging this article with the one about Falcon's down air. I actually forgot about those pages until now. Sorry about that. Nymbaresigicon.png Nymbare and his talk 11:09, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

Yep, merge with his Melee dair page, especially since this property is unique to the Melee version of the move. Miles (talk) 13:21, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

Don't Delete, but Merge It's better to merge than to delete. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 13:58, 26 July 2016 (EDT)

Decidedly neutral One one end, I think the trick is a notable one and should be covered, but on the other, a redir to Captain Falcon (SSBM)/Down aerial will work just as well. Serpent SKSig.png King 22:09, 26 July 2016 (EDT)
