Following Frosbite 2018’s top 8 where Bayonetta made multiple appearances, the Smash 4 community has taken up its torches and pitchforks to go on a bit of a witch hunt. Despite her being able to kill off a single touch, Bayonetta is not unbeatable — as many pro Bayonetta players will attest to. While her combos may look inescapable, careful use of SDI will have you popping out of her combos and living to fight another day.
In order to show people exactly how to escape Bayonetta’s combos, Rush Hour Smash’s Keitaro has drafted in the help of Phoenix1’s Tweek and top Corrin main Cosmos for an hour long anti-Bayonetta masterclass. This guide will tell you exactly how to SDI/DI out of Bayonetta combos, as well as potential follow-ups you should look for if you manage to escape.
At least if you now face a Bayonetta in bracket, you’ll be better equipped to deal with her nonsense.
