Mr. Game & Watch's up aerial apparently goes on forever upon being reflected in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — Beefy Smash Doods Smash Review

Mr. Game & Watch's up aerial — based on the game known as Spitball Sparky — is perhaps one of the best aerials in the game when it comes to racking up damage and keeping opponents in disadvantage once you get them above you.

For better or worse, it can be a little tricky to take stocks using this move as it only travels far enough to hit enemies up to six times. Essentially, it's a completely different move compared to its Smash 4 iteration. It bears a lot of similarities to Mega Man's up aerial in this game.

Despite the limitation, it's actually possible to make the projectile travel infinitely. As demonstrated in the Beefy Smash Doods' latest video, all that's needed is a reflector.

In one of the clips highlighted by the Beefy Smash Doods, a Mr. Game & Watch user was fighting against their own character in a mirror match. The other player found themselves in a disadvantage situation as they were being juggled by Mr. Game & Watch's up aerial.

Using the down special, the opponent reflected the up aerial back down towards the original owner of the projectile. To counter, they also used their reflector to send it back up.

Funnily enough, the projectile lasted far longer than it is normally able to. A kill was eventually awarded as one of the G&W users found themselves going off the top.

Of course, there are plenty of other unique moments highlighted in the video that are worth checking out. If you didn't think the clip with Mr. Game & Watch's up aerial was impressive, something like the Captain Falcon combo that involved portals, barrels, and lava might be more up your alley...
