  • Palutena's counter is a good way to stop Chrom, Link, and similar characters from recovering below the stage ledge when they use their Up-B recovery. More so, if you are facing towards the stage.

  • @ low% fair into grab is your best friend. Down throw into any aerial depending on DI. People tend to AirD towards you to get out of Dthrow-Fair. Nair is a free edgeguard against most of the cast.
