Marth Tech: Shield Stop/Pivot
Description / How To Perform
Pressing shield during a dash causes you to stop instantly in place. Ending a dash like this by using a Shield-Stop is useful beyond just for blocking attacks. For example, you can Shield-Stop to turn yourself around quickly during a Dash Dance, and follow-up with a quick Short Hop aerial attack. Doing a short hop like this allows you to jump straight up rather than in the direction you were previously dashing, effectively ending your momentum. This offers new versatility to your spacing on the ground, especially when combined with different aerial drifts.
