Button mashing on hypers

hey, this may be a stupid question, but i was under the impression that you could mash buttons on some hypers (like proton cannon) and get extra hits. at least i thought this was the case in MVC2. the problem is i’ve been activating the X factor by accident by doing this. is button mashing not necessary or is there some technique to it (like just hit the 3 attack buttons but not the rest)?

Mashing has no effect in mvc3.

Doesn’t mashing affect Haggar’s Punch Hyper?
