Talk:Sex kick

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

term?[edit]

Who created the term, "sex kick?" I'm just curious. Anyways, that's the kind of info that would also be useful on this page. AnujSuper9 06:45, March 1, 2007 (GMT)

Matt Deezie, I think. Smiddle ( TalkConts ) 15:16, March 1, 2007 (GMT)

Somebody fact-check me on the SSB sex kicks. MaskedMarth (t c) 15:27, March 1, 2007 (GMT)

Um, why exactly is it called a "Sex Kick"? Can you please explain THAT. - Pokemon DP

Well...it remains extended after the initial thrust... --RJM Talk 11:56, January 6, 2008 (EST)

I believe a sex kick picture would help. Zmario 10:17, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I have a snapshot of Samus's, but I can't upload it (Unless someone helps me. [If I put the SD Card in there are all ".bin" files])12.74.209.165 23:26, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

I think Ill add what moves for each char are sex kicks...if someone thinks they should be organized better by all means change it User:KoRoBeNiKi

I still find the name confusing. "Sex kick"? Remains extended after the initial thrust? That sounds like some nerd desperately trying to fit a sexual link to anything in the world. Isn't there a better explanation? Has anyone asked? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 08:40, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

In this case, it's not a matter of whether or not it's a particularly "good" name, but it's one that has become widely used throughout the community and popular usage will often dictate the "official" name for something that doesn't have an official name otherwise. --RJM Talk 14:12, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm aware that it's the name used. I was talking about why the person who gave it that name, gave it that name. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 11:14, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

We don't know, we aren't the person who coined the term. - Hatake91 (talk) 00:19, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

No one's ever asked him, huh? Zixor (talk) 03:21, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Couldn't it have been called something like "duration kick"? Blue Ninjakoopa 03:26, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
It could have been except that it's not, so deal with it. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 04:15, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Dude, srsly. Take a chill pill >:U Blue Ninjakoopa 04:17, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Do we have to call it that? I mean I have never heard this term used and dont undersand how it is a "popular name". Anyway, I dont mind this page that much but Do we have to link all the pages to this “kick”? I mean some people may find i innaporpriate or offensive, myself included.--Qim1 (talk) 00:50, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

I think it's short for "sexy kick", not anything offensive. 98.117.158.220 21:00, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
  • It's referencing "sex", which definitely makes it inappropriate for half the population. Has anyone ever considered that there might be minors on this page, not knowing what it means and stumbling onto this page? How old do you expect the viewers to be? This is a wiki about a game people! --Qim1 (talk) 21:03, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Where in he world do you get half the population from? And how is sex offensive? We are not a bunch of puritans here. Just statistically speaking, more than half the people who visit this site have probably had sex based on their age (granted, it's a site about video games, so who knows...:-P), and most of the rest have at least thought about it to the point that it's not offensive to think about people having sex. If you don't like it, go to church, not SmashWiki. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 00:31, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
It's got SEX in the name, so, yeah, it's referencing it (though, how???). -Zixor (talk) 22:40, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe it has to do with the number 6, 'cause "sex" is a prefix for six. e.g. sextillion - User:SmashPichu2SmashPichu2 (talk) 19:13, 9 May 2011 (EDT)
It's unnecessary to comment on a discussion that's a year old. MegaTron1XD:p 19:55, 9 May 2011 (EDT)

Deletion[edit]

Now that I think about it, this page should be deleted. Here's my reasons:

  1. It's not helpful. It's not a tecnique or anything
  2. We might as well have articles of "headbutt" or "punch".
  3. There's no official name. I mean, sure, the current name is popular, but it's not official. Unlike L cancelling, which is as simple as you can go, "sex kick" is a made up name that has nothing to do with the thing.

There, I think it should be deleted immediatly. 98.117.158.220 20:42, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

  1. It is a common term, and people may be confused when they see it in places(such as SWF guides), so we have it if people need to look it up.
  2. Explain that logic please.
  3. There's no official name for Wavedashing either, should we delete that? There are a lot of unofficial terms here, should all those be deleted?Smoreking(T) (c) 00:31, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
It's just a term for a type of attack. We don't need an article for a kind of kick. Also, wavedashing actually has to do with what the action is. "sex kick" does not. And I've never heard the term of SmashBoards. Besides, Fan games arn't allowed an article, regardless of how popular they are. 98.117.158.220 01:13, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
Are you serious? Really, are you serious? You've "never heard the term of [sic] SmasherBoards." SmashBoards is a website. Basically, it's the biggest forum on Smash Bros, where they have the SBR and other things. If you don't know what that is, you need to learn before you edit again. This is the term for the attack. People involved in the smash community know this. We didn't make it up. It is not our job to dumb down the website to you, it's your job to know/learn enough to understand and edit it. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 00:25, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Oops, that was a typo. I meant I never heard it on smashboards. 98.111.95.78 01:55, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Go ask. Or, if you don't want to be flamed for being a n00b, take my word for it. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 05:48, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
You realize that I am 98.177.158.220? My IP changed a month ago. See my talk page. 98.111.95.78 16:54, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Yes. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 17:25, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think it should be deleted because I only thought that Captain Falcon could do it.----Supersonicman

Great post. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 00:25, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • I agree with the deletion of this page.--Qim1 (talk) 20:56, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Any chance you'd like to explain? Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 00:25, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

-Absolutely no way this page will be deleted. -Zixor (talk) 22:40, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

BNK [E|T|C] 00:09, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

I agree on the deletion of this article. The reasons listed on the top are correct IMO, it's not a technique it's just a category of attacks. Headbutt and punch is also a category of attacks. Sex kick is hardly even used as a term anymore, the usually just use the attack name (Nair,Bair,etc.). If it does get used then it should be posted in the section of the guide where they tell what means what.--Moneypony (talk) 23:23, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

This page will not be deleted. Period. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 02:25, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
You're the Boss, C-Hawk. Let's archive this discussion now. 98.111.95.78 02:47, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. That said, I will detail the reasons for this. First, unlike headbut etc. the term Sex Kick is not self-referential. You don't "get" what a Sex Kick is like you do a headbut or drop-kick. Second, the properties of the attack are not immediately obvious by the animation. It is not intuitive that the hit box remains on an extended foot, so documenting that is by definition a priority of this wiki. Third, a wide enough range of moves that have these properties exist to merit discussion of the group of attacks. Therefore, we need some way to categorize them, and Sex Kick is already a term used for them. Fourth, even if the term has fallen out of vogue in current usage, that does not mean that the term is not and has not been used enough to merit mention on this wiki. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 15:59, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
My recent edits to most of the character article's moveset descriptions and combo terminology usually link here. This article's purpose is pretty important regardless of whatever reasons, so no opposes here. --HavocReaper'48 02:53, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Meaning[edit]

Okay, so, no one seems to want to deal with this properly, so I'll make this quite clear: Unless it can be explained, the term sex kick's lack of meaning will be pointed out in the article. -End of story. Zixor (talk) 20:44, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Uh, it's fine the way it is, it's slang. Also, an admin needs to seriously protect Sex Kick and this talk page- didn't we have enough debate already?! --HavocReaper'48 20:50, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
  1. Terms do not have to have meaning, implicit or explicit. Take tech as an example, the average non-smasher will think it's just a short form for "technique".
  2. I believe the term does have an explicit meaning. But since it's "explicit" in another way as well, it's hardly appropriate to menion it in the article.
Toomai Glittershine Toomai.png eXemplary Logic 21:11, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
I haven't put the explanation in not only because of what Toomai said, but also because it's bloody obvious. And yes, as Toomai, the explanation would have to go into more detail than I would be comfortable with providing on this wiki. PenguinofDeath 22:19, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
  1. Tech does have a meaning.
  2. Things need to be explained as well as they can be, or else recognized as having no explicit reasoning.

-Zixor (talk) 01:42, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

We know why it's called "Sex Kick". It's just too embarrasing to explain it. 98.111.95.78 02:09, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Hooray, I think we have a solution -Zixor (talk) 18:13, April 28, 2010 (UTC) (penis)

No, it's lesbian sex. There, I said it. 98.111.95.78 23:24, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

I can't take it anymore[edit]

I am really sorry to revive this old argument, but after reading the talk page, I just can't understand what makes the "sex kick" so important compared to other moves? It'd be like making an article for Rapid-Hit Neutral Combos. Plus the name is a bit... y'know. 76.117.12.143 18:50, 23 June 2011 (EDT)

If you read the argument, you would see this is a notable term within the Smash community. And the fact remains it's a notable hitbox property that many attacks share. Also, we have an article for neutral combos. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 21:24, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
Well, what about other moves with special properties? I can't think of any at the moment, aside from Ness and Lucas's side-smash, but I read on another talk page (I think it was Knee Smash) that it doesn't get a page because it doesn't have an official name. But then again, neither does this, so... what's the standard for this? 76.117.12.143 17:01, 28 June 2011 (EDT)
Moves with official names get articles, like Knee Smash and Lightning Kick, as do things with highly-common names in the community, such as sex kick, Ken combo, wavedash, etc. Miles (talk) 17:18, 28 June 2011 (EDT)
So because Ness's bat hasn't been given a name, we can't give it one? Plenty of wikis create terms for things that end up becoming the official term, and the fact that it reflects projectiles seems pretty notable. And before you say it would end up a stub, we already have hundreds of stubs on this wiki that I don't see being deleted, so why not create something like [Ness's Bat] or something? 76.117.12.143 22:18, 29 June 2011 (EDT)
The fact that it reflects projectiles is already covered by Ness (SSBM), Ness (SSBB), and reflector. Miles (talk) 22:21, 29 June 2011 (EDT)
Info is already in the articles. ..... Win PikachuHeadSSBB.png 22:34, 29 June 2011 (EDT)
The simple fact is, Ness' bat does not have notability within the Smash community. You don't see it getting memetic mutations, being the subject of combo videos, or having large discussions about it. And when it comes to stubs, they don't get deleted as they have room for expansion. However, if an article subject cannot get larger than a few sentences while still remaining relevant, and its relevant information is already covered on other appropriate pages, an article for that subject is pointless (such articles that got removed for this reason were Kojima Productions, and Bucket Braking). On the Wiki, we do not want duplicate information being thrown around, especially into a bunch of single paragraph long articles. It just confuses the reader, while giving them nothing. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 02:57, 30 June 2011 (EDT)
Also, for you trying to use sex kick's existence as an article to justify an article for Ness' bat, keep in mind sex kick is a hitbox property, shared by a large amount of attacks, while Ness' bat is a single attack with a special hitbox property. And you know what? We have an article for that htibox property that Ness' bat has. So as you can see, an article for the sex kick property is irrelevant to Ness' bat getting an article.

Why aren't certain moves counted?[edit]

I'm not sure I fully understand what counts as a sex kick. If the move doesn't require an actual kicking animation, why is Kirby's Melee/Brawl/4 nair not considered such? What about Villager's nair? Pac-Man's? These moves have long duration one-hit gradually weakening hitboxes that start off strong, as well as having very little startup or landing lag, and similar hitbox placement throughout. Does the spinning animation make it no longer count? FirstaLasto 19:55, 8 January 2015 (EST)
