Crawldashing; what is it? Crawldashing is basically a psuedo-backwards wavedash resulting from a dash and a crawl. It's been around forever in Minus, but I've never heard anyone mention it until recently. It's especially pronounced with Shiek. After messing around as Zamus for a few rounds with my friends, I noticed that I was sliding backwards, like a wavedash, when I tried crouching while moving forward. With experimentation I've found that it's caused by canceling from a dash into a backwards crawl for a moment, then releasing the stick to neutral or crouching. How to - Dash>crouch>crawl backwards briefly>Stand* *Stand can be replaced with anything that isn't crawling - jumping, attacking, etc. The timing is different per character. I think it's easiest to perform as Luigi/Ivy. Out of all the crawling characters, 2/3 can crawldash... but out of those crawldashers, only about half may be practical. So, I've made a list based on how useful each character's crawldash is. Shiek - The standout example of this tech. If you do it just right, she goes back a distance rivaling her DACUS! I might be crazy, but she may only get this additional boost when she's facing right - I literally was unable to do it facing left. Oh, and I think she can moonwalk with this. Luigi - The only other character that crawldashes further backwards from the point where he started dashing. Thanks to Luigi's low friction, he slides back a good distance greater than every other character, barring Shiek. His reverse crawl momentum seems to decelerate at a slower rate than everyone else's too, so crawling backwards after a dash could be a legit alternative (maybe). Also, it looks funny. - These characters have smaller or less practical crawldashes. In terms of utility, they range from somewhat useful to debatable use. In general order of distance/usefulness; Zamus Diddy Ivysaur Yoshi Snake Squirtle Pikachu - None. Despite being able to crawl, these characters can't crawldash or travel almost no distance backwards when doing so. Bowser Lucario Rob Wario Thoughts?
