Pyra & Mythra were recently released as a two-in-one DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Ever since then, fans have been putting in time into figuring out the best way to play these two Xenoblade Chronicles 2 reps.

Shortly after their release, Mrbeecroft posted a clip of him going up against a level 9 computer using Mythra. It appears that the developers have programmed the A.I. to perform a specific combo under the right circumstances.

On top of one of the Battlefield platforms, the computer-controlled Mythra was able to punish the human player by using a down tilt. Rather than comboing into an aerial, the artificial intelligence instead opted to perform a footstool.

To ensure that they'd be able to reach the ground at roughly the same time as the opposing Mythra, the computer controlled character then used Mythra's directional air dodge to quickly descend back to the platform.

Following this, the A.I. then used Mythra's jab to jab lock the opponent. Landing the forward smash at this point was inescapable.

While it's true that Mrbeecroft could've teched the footstool, who could've possibly predicted this outcome?
