Melee Ledge

The ledge is a powerful tool in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Sets are won and lost based off devious ledge traps, missed ledge-dashes and split-second edge hogs. Seeing as ledge play is so integral to becoming a great Smash player, SSBM Tutorials is dedicating a two-part video series to keeping control of this tiny bit of stage.

This first episode is strictly about the basics, with narrator CDK telling players about the four essential rules of the ledge, as well as when to use certain get-up options. Every character has unique animations for their ledge jump, ledge roll, ledge attack and neutral ledge get-up, so make sure to learn the situations where a particular option is the most useful.

Expect the second episode of this ledge info bonanza to go live next week, with it explaining advanced techniques like ledge-dashing, Shino stalling, Sami stalling and more.
