A listing of all terminology and lingo from Super Smash Bros. Y.

Directional Control

When launched, players may slightly control their trajectory via the left stick. This is useful for avoiding a KO, but may be used on larger stages to get away from an opponent when a player has a high percentage.

Hero Kick

A hero kick is an aerial attack in which a foot or arm remains extended for a few moments after the initial thrust. Properties of hero kicks include:

  • Single hit attack.
  • Stronger during first few frames, but weaker during later frames.
  • Almost no startup and landing lag.
  • Long hitbox duration.
  • Similar animation and hitbox placement throughout entire attack.
  • Almost always bad combo moves.

Hero kicks are renamed from their original unofficial name of "sex kicks".

Hitstun

Hitstun is a period of time after being hit by an attack that a character is unable to act outside of directional influence or teching.

Hitstun is an essential component of combos, as the basis of a combo is to have enemies trapped in hitstun while constantly being attacked. As a result, games that have more hitstun for equivalent knockback open up more potential combos.

Meteor Smash

An attack that has a specific knockback angle that sends opponents straight downward or at a largely downward angle. Meteor smashes are designed to be good at KOing opponents at low percentages, and as such most are difficult to pull off.

Wavedash

A technique performed by air dodging diagonally into the ground, causing the character to slide a short distance. While sliding, characters may perform neutral attacks while moving, making it a relatively useful technique.

While wavedashing in Melee had variable lengths depending on each character, all wavedash lengths in SSBY are equal.
