Wait... isn't Lucas supposed to be a mid tier in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? How does Tanakasu91 make the character look so sick?

Lucas in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is generally regarded as a mid tier character when it comes to competitive play. Ness is considered to be the superior Earthbound rep as he has significantly better tournament results than Lucas.

If you're someone who doesn't think that Lucas is that much of a threat in Super smash Bros. Ultimate's current meta, then you should probably check out this clip that was uploaded by Tanakasu91.

Thanks to his rope snake, Lucas has access to to a very useful Z-Air. Although it doesn't have as much range as other Z-Airs, it can be used to combo into itself several times if the controlling player's execution is on point.

Tanakasu91's clip ended up showcasing them using Lucas' Z-Air, neutral air, and down air to initiate some absolutely devastating sequences. Needless to say, the damage percentages of opponents ended up skyrocketing once Tanakasu91 was able to land a hit.

While it's certainly true that not all of these sequences are necessarily true combos, it's clear that Tanakasu91 will really destroy anyone that might be sleeping on Lucas.

Check out the clip below to see what Tanakasu91 is able to do with this supposed mid tier:
