A legendary Smash 64 combo contest player has begun doing the same in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — you have to see it to believe it

Super Smash Bros. 64 is well known for its combo heavy game plan. One of the best parts when the top Smash 64 fighters get together, is the combo contest.

The most intricate combos come out, some involving the stage, items, and more. It has remained a staple in the Smash 64 scene, never quite taking hold in the later Smash games. After PG|Prince Yoshi's clips that might change.

The amount of thought that goes into the Smash 64 combo contests makes my brain hurt even thinking about it. You have to labor to figure out what goes where which is difficult in itself.

Another part that has to be labbed out meticulously is figuring out the trajectory of your opponent in the combo. Do you want the sweet spot or sour spot of that move, or will it not bounce them up far enough?

On the other hand, deciding which items are ones you want to use is another headache. There are literally hundreds to choose from, so finding just the right one can be a pain.

Prince Yoshi has been doing this for several years, so of course he makes it look easy. His video is what happens when all those factors come together and make the perfect combo contest-type of combo.
