    Pin Clock why was reverse knee taken out again? I have no idea why this was taken out... it's a Melee thing sure, but it looks cool and also promotes good spacing with Falcon, rewarding players for being precise.

    Any chance it could be put back in?

    It's also a great DI mixup. It bothers me that this isn't in the game.

    Edit: What's even weirder is that I'm pretty sure the sour spot has a reverse hitbox too.

    Didn't even know there was a Reverse Knee? How is it normally executed? Is it present in Melee/PM?

    Well, since no one answered... a reverse knee isn't actually doing a knee backwards, but it's a phrase used to refer to when the knee sends your opponent opposite the direction Falcon is facing. For an example, go to 1:33 here, where Scar reverse knees the Marth after his up+b:

    If you are good at spacing knees, it's good for edgeguarding and also killing people earlier in combos [where in Minus your knee would always have to go in the direction you're facing, in Melee/PM you can space to make it send them backwards].

    Whoa that sounds nice. Seems like a reasonable thing to have without considering him to be OP. I feel like it would be easy to balance other characters who otherwise would be unable to cope with it regardless.

    It was removed for... I don't even know why. But it's not broken or anything, because if Falcon's knee would only kill one direction, he can almost always just opt to knee anyway then go edgeguard [or pick another aerial and if they DI wrong, that links into knee anyway]. I think some Falcon player hated reverse knees and asked for them to be removed and they were, but I seriously doubt it was a balance consideration... unless Pin Clock wants to say otherwise.
