Special Custom Set A

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Straight Lunge 14%/12%/9% (uncharged ground), 25%/20% (fully charged ground), 10%/7% (uncharged air), 15% (fully charged air), 35% (KO ground), 13% (KO air) A chargeable, dashing punch. If the Power Meter is fully charged, turns into the KO Uppercut instead. This attack has powerful super armor and high endlag when fully charged.
Custom 1 Flaming Straight Lunge 1.5%/3% (uncharged ground loop/last), 1.8%/6% (fully charged ground loop/last), 1.2%/3% (uncharged air loop/last), 1.4%/5% (fully charged air loop/last), 35% (KO ground), 13% (KO air) Charges faster and deals multiple hits. It also inflicts fire damage.

Side Special Jolt Haymaker 14% A lunging overhand punch similar in appearance to a Superman punch. It propels Mac quite a distance and can dodge any projectile while he is in the air. When used in the air, its distance and speed are much shorter and slower, respectively. It is advised not to use this attack around the edge of a stage, since it sends him into helplessness.
Custom 1 Grounding Blow 9% Has a much higher leap compared to the Jolt Haymaker and buries opponents into the ground if done on land. While in air, it will result in a meteor smash if it connects with an opponent. It has great vertical height that is compensated by its lack of horizontal movement, making it a better recovery somewhat. It is also much safer to use near the edge due to the movement.
Custom 2 Guard Breaker 18% Distance and speed are much shorter and slower, respectively. However, it is unblockable and powerful.
Up Special Rising Uppercut 1% (loop), 3% (last) A corkscrewing vertical punch. When used on the ground, it goes much higher, moves more horizontally and deals more damage. Conversely, it is worse overall when used in the air.
Custom 1 Tornado Uppercut 3%/4% Travels farther, but does less damage and knockback. A gust of wind shoves back opponents on the ground. The aerial version's distance is comparable to the Rising Uppercut's ground distance.
Custom 2 Rising Smash 16% (hit 1), 4% (hit 2) Does much more damage and knockback, but travels even less far and has a lot of start up and ending lag.
Down Special Slip Counter 1.3x (min 10%) Dodges backward to avoid a hit, then counterattacks with an invincible uppercut. In the air, this can be used to either give him a better recovery or hinder him due to its slide and the direction his opponent is at.
Custom 1 Compact Counter 1.3x (min 4%) Less damage and knockback, but is faster overall and also provides him with a faster recovery overall as well. Can be used to initiate follow-ups.
Custom 2 Dash Counter 1.3x (min 7%) Dashes forwards upon countering, giving him a far better recovery than before if used in the air.
