Talk:Skull Bash

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

I think the part where it says it can hit the opponent backwards is not that important! Like, Falcon's knee can do that also, but it's not in the article! Doc King (talk) 17:23, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Are you sure it has the right meaning? This flips the opponent when they are facing the player.--MegaTron1XD:p 17:26, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
(edit conflict)How is it not important? This page describes the attack and its properties, one of which is sometimes knocking the opponent backwards. Should we also not mention that this attack does damage, because Falcon's Knee also does that? Also, +1 to Tooomai's exclamation point comment.

Ok, C. Hawk, first of all, don't get off topic about my exclamation points and second of all, don't nick pick everything I do cause ppl aren't perfect you know! I'm just saying that I think that statement is a little too stubbish to be in there! If you think that it should be there, then we should put in more info about it! Doc King (talk) 17:47, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

First of all, why is Doc King using exclamation points so much recently? It's extremely annoying. Second of all, any hitbox - unless it's specially coded not to do so - will send targets away from the attacker, no matter what side they're on. Directional attacks like Skull Bash seem like they should only hit people in the direction Pikachu's moving, but it doesn't have to unless coded to do so. So it's generally not important.

That's what I'm saying! I didn't make that edit, an IP did! Doc King (talk) 17:35, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
So we should delete that part! Doc King (talk) 17:35, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
OK, I'm not at my Wii to test this, but if "backwards" means towards the side that Pikachu came from, then yes, it should be mentioned as that is different from what the norm would be. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 17:37, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
Well, any attack can do this and It's not really a big issue to his attack! I just think it's not important to Pika or Pichu! Doc King (talk) 17:41, August 13, 2010 (UTC)
The problem here is that there are two expected results: the casual player expects to be hit in whatever direction Pikachu's moving because that makes sense, but the technical player expects to be hit the opposite direction Pikachu's moving if the "back" of the attack connects because that's how hitboxes work.

The mention of Skull Bash sending enemies "backwards" should be removed, it's not a unique trait at all. Any hitbox with horizontal knockback can send an opponent the opposite direction the player is facing depending on what side of the hitbox they are hit by. There are attacks that are more likely to do this, such as Ike's f-smash, Falco's f-smash, etc. But this is not an unique trait of Skull Bash and therefore it is completely unnecessary to mention normal game physics in the article.

Recover move[edit]

I even used this move to get back on the stage as a recovery move. It worked on Melee and Brawl. Thats why i used it to recover when Pikachu and Pichu when up high and left or right i jumped without going a bit lower and using the Quick Attack move. I simply jump and use that move to get back. Thats why i found that way to recover.--75.142.67.97 19:06, 14 December 2011 (EST)
