***************************************************************************
Marth Need to Knows:





Tipping: This is a skill that only Marth can perform. Tipping is when you hits the opponent with the very "Tip" of Marth's Blade. It is something you must do to make your combos and attacks stronger and have more knock back. One strategy I find useful is at the beginning of a battle you can grab someone throw them forward and immdetatly follow up with a forward smash. This should get a good 29% if performed correctly. Remember this can only be done if the opponent has 0%.

Aerial Manuevering: Marth was born for air combat. When playing as Marth do not be afraid to jump offstage and kill your opponent. Most off Marth's killing his opponent happens offstage.


Countering: Down B is one (if not best) of the games best defensive moves if used correctly. This move can be used any where to get yourself out off a tight stop. Just remember not to make your countering to predictalbe or use will end losing very quickly. This move can be used very effectivlly for edgeguarding. Also this is a nice shield when facing projectile "spammers".

Shield Grab: This move is great for spacing the opponent and yourself. Marth can not be played to his full power in close combat. This is where shield grabbing is useful. Using this technique will reset your space between you and your opponent.

Invincible Dolphin Slash:

Dolphin Slash, Marth's Up B, happens to be a very unique move. During the first 4 frames of the attack, Marth is invincible. This not only serves to escape from combos early, but it helps against Chain Grabs too. Also like any Up B move, it can be used out of a Shield. When sweet spotted, this attack has very high knock back, so an opponent at high percent is in danger if they attempt to attack you at close quarters. It's a good move to use in a tight spot, and serves Marth well as one of his fastest moves. If you plan to use this however, make sure you hit with it, and hold down to fall onto the stage faster; it's cool down time is atrocious, and you'll likely get licked if you miss. - Ulevo

Chain Grabbing: Marth's Chain is not as unique as King Dedede or the Ice Climbers but it's a great way to get a couple damage in at the beginning of a match. Note that this chain grab can only be done at low % and also can only be done to few on the whole Brawl roster. This chain grab can step up numerous combo. You may follow it up with a Dancing Balde, F-air, or even D-air spike. Here is a list of the few who can get chain grabbed by Marth:

Falco

Captain Falcon

Fox

King Dedede

Ganondorf

Wolf

Sheik

Marth Counterpick Stage Advantages:

Battlefield


This is the Best neutral/counterpick stage for Marth. Marth and Battlefield equals almost absolute victory. Being a small stage with alot of room offstage marth can easily do anything he wants to his opponent. The platforms allow Marth to do his aerials with relative ease. If you don't now the opponent your going up against then this is the stage that will esae your troubles.

Delfino Plaza


This stage has countless tricks to help Marth easily overcome the opponent. Marth can trap, spike, and counter in so many place of this stage the opponent will be confused with themselves. An unlucky soul might even find themselves trapped in Marth Dtilt trap. Marth can also spike through the floor. Keep that in mind

Lylat Cruise


This stage is a perfect for Marth's playstyle. This stage helps Marth's tipping because of it's Stage Tilt effect. This stage may also help Marth escape unwanted projectiles flying at him. The stage Tilt effect also lowers the chance of survival for opponents with bad recoveries while it help Marth's survival chance of recovery.

Sweet guide so far! Love the pics, especially those of the stages. As I stated on your Ike guide, a bit more analysis on his moveset will be needed. Since Marth is relies heavily on his air game, you could do an analysis of that. I'm not too sure about this, but I've seen some chain-grabbing done with Marth before; perhaps you could discuss that as well (or at least which throws can start combos).

You forgot to mention Marth's Up-B. Also, provide some insight on how to recover using his Neutral B and Forward B.

Great work!
