If your main could only use five attacks, what would they be?

Recommended Posts

Blatantly stolen from a thread on /r/smashbros, but I think that their rules (three moves, including grab/throws) are too limiting.

Rules:
Your main (or other character) can use:
- Five (5) attacks of your choice.
- Grab.
- One throw of your choice. If you want another throw, it counts as one of your five attacks.
- Defensive options (shield, rolls, spotdodge, airdodge) are free.
- Any movement you can do with only jump and the control stick is allowed, obviously.

Keep in mind you may wish to have a recovery (which gives characters like Yoshi and Jigglypuff a slight edge). Tethers (zairs) count as grabs.

[spoiler=Example]Link (SSB4):

Attacks:

- Bomb

- Utilt

- Bair or Nair

- Spin Attack

- Jab

Throw:

- Dthrow

Depending on matchup I might swap something out for Uair.

People always avoid my nair or fair with Uthrow, Dthrow is better for follow ups. Maybe it works better at lower %? I find dthrow more reliable overall.

Rosalina

- UAir

- UAir Gravitational Pull

- UAir Jab

- UAir FSmash

- UAir USmash

- DThrow

Why do Rosalina like this move? It seems like an easy version of powershielding and unlike powershielding, you can't punish afterwards. Not to mention you also have a Luma to absorb projectiles for you. Has niche uses like steal Ness's recovery, but is it worth a move slot? I'm genuinely curious.

are footstools classified as given movement? nair to foostool at 0 is a confirm to kill ness and some others.

given that you can perform a footstool by pressing "jump" I'd say so

I'll let them slide for Project M as well, even if they aren't done with "jump"

also I'm surprised melee fox is lacking vertical kill tools

he doesn't need them, shine spike and bair gimp everything. nair sets up for shield pressure and combos into bair and itself, and lasers are icing on the cake. firefox just for the invincibility stall which he doesn't even need on yoshi's story.

Lucas

Attacks:

-Pk Fire (Side Special)

-Pk Thunder (Up Special)

-Nair

-Bair

-Fair

Throw:

In this case, if I were to only use Fire, Thunder, Nair, Bair, and Fair, Bthrow would probably work better.

But I'll say Dthrow
