Marth Tech: Standup Powershield
Description / How To Perform
A Powershield is triggered when an attack's hitbox is inside your Shield-Sphere when your shield is raised, but before it collides with your character's hurtbox. Marth and Sheik are both tall characters that crouch very low to the ground, and shielding while crouching instantly forces your character to standing height. This gives them a large area of space above them that can be powershielded while standing up from crouch, whilst keeping their hurtbox relatively protected.
Usefulness: (Generally Useful)
Standup Powershields are extremely useful against Falco lasers. With enough consistancy you can punish laser approaches, reduce his general pressure, and frustrate him into using unsafe appproaches.
