Slip Counter (スリッピングカウンター Surippingu Kauntā?, Slipping Counter) is Little Mac's Down Special Move. When his opponent attacks, Little Mac gets into a defensive position and returns with an uppercut, similar to every other counter moves.


Slip Counter is an extremely useful move both in the center and at the ledge. Slip Counter is one of the few defensive moves Little Mac has, also giving him a powerful offensive punch to intercept attacks. Occasionly, when Little Mac counters a strong move, such as Kirby's Hammer Flip, and Little Mac is too far away to land a hit, a glitch occurs and the opponent is sent flying in the opposite direction as though they were hit by the counter, often to their deaths. Like other counterattacks, Slip Counter ricochets almost the same amount of knockback and damage back to the opponent. It has a self-destruct risk if done in the air due to Little Mac sliding towards his opponents.
