Comes out instantly. Covers half of final destination. Very few recovery frames. Interrupts literally everything. Has a very real smash potential at 100+ HP. It makes playing against villager infuriating, especially since he can pocket any projectile. I’ve been playing smash since 64 and it’s by far the most frustrating thing I’ve ever experienced.
I used to love playing as Samus, even though she’s garbage tier, but the character is ruined playing against my friend who uses Villager. I switched to C. Falcon with more success, but that goddamn pea shooter just makes every game a frustrating, uphill battle. It’s like playing Cammy without her projectile-avoiding moves against wave after wave of Sagat. Even if I choose to high jump to approach, he can either short hop backwards to hit me, or just use his crazy hitbox fireworks upsmash.
I can’t take it any more. It makes me want to quit playing. There’s got to be some huge weakness, or flaw, or SOMETHING that makes the move anything but the most easily spammed game-killer in the entire series.
