I found this method while messing in training mode. I figured that the system does not need a 540 in order to do a Gigas, but 2 270s. I thought: “Well, maybe if I do a 270 in one direction, and then the other in reverse…”, and surprise, it works! So it makes a lot of tricks like the one in the thread title a lot easier to do. Try this:
Giant Palm Bomber, any strength (Buffer the first 270 from up to back to down to towards somewhat late, my point of reference is when the clap actually hits, so that you get to down or down-towards just as the clap ends), then when you end at towards, hold towards for a bit for the walk, then do the other 270 from towards to down to back to up, then punch. Not hard to do, but I haven’t thought other uses for this. The argument behind this being an easier way is that you only press up at the beginning and at the end of the sequence for Gigas, instead of mid-way, which may cause undesired jumps, so basically, it can be used with anything -> walk -> Gigas. Hope this helps all of the other Hugo players around here!
