Feint Jump (反転キック) is one of the Mii Brawler's Down Special Moves. The Mii Brawler backflips into the air, and based on the direction the player inputs, the Mii will descend, foot outstretched. The Mii Brawler has invincibility frames when backflipping, making this a good evasive or spacing technique.
In Ultimate, it was nerfed overall. It lost the ability to ledge-cancel, and travels a more downward angle, hurting it's recovery potential. However, it gained a new attack: If the brawler is near an enemy after jumping, it automatically does a meteor-smashing stomp.
- Excellent dodging/evading move
- Invincibility frames during the flip
- Great for flanking opponents and then attacking with the kick
- Good attack on the edge
- Recovery move
- The kick can be influenced to go in different directions
- Overuse can make it predictable
The Feint Jump is an excellent move for players that like to play it a bit safer while still maintaining a great deal of options. The flip has invincibility frames making the move a good tool for dodging enemy attacks; a projectile that is heading towards Mii Brawler can be easily avoided by flipping over it with the Feint Jump. The kick attack that follows is a great addition to the move as it moves Mii Brawler forwards and can be directed left or right; directing it towards the stage is a great way to recover. The kick will also make for a good surprise attack on pursuing opponents or flanking opponents by flipping over them and then attacking them with the kick. On the edge, the move can be used to flip off the edge as an opponent climbs up onto the edge; press the attack button to kick back towards the stage and hit the opponent that just climbed up. The move has very few weaknesses, the only one being that spamming it will render Mii Brawler's movements more predictable since the flip will always land in relatively the same position.
