Is Banjo-Kazooie's side special unstoppable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? There may be a solution

Banjo-Kazooie is the latest new fighter to be made available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As a result, the majority of the competitive scene has been grinding the newcomer to see his viability.

All the lab work has resulted in the unanimous fact — his side special is extremely good. It may be unsafe on block, and punishable at low percents, but it is undeniably a very good move.

It's hit invincible, but not grab invincible essentially. It quite literally beats all attacks or trades with them outright.

Final smashes, armored attacks, super armored attacks, it does not matter. That side B is coming whether you want it to or not. There is one way to beat it though.

Grabs are a fundamental part of Smash. People who shield too much are punished with grabs normally. They also start combos, and they are an important tool in the meta. They also beat Banjo-Kazooie's side B.

What do you think of the move? Is it over-powered?
