Similarity to Teching

I think this page should be deleted; the concept is very similar to teching. I'm not going to do it cuz I usually get in trouble, but if anyone agrees with me, I think it should be deleted.Solid Snack 01:34, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

I thought momentum canceling was where you canceled your momentum via an aerial? Shade487z 01:21, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

True, but he stated that it was done via an air dodge, therefore it is identical to teching overall.Solid Snack 01:34, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Air dodging along an object ≠ wall tech. This stays, at least for now. Miles (talk) 02:10, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
If it helps, I was playing friendlies with my friend and instead of being knocked out by Fox's F-smash, I tripped and fell. I was pressing the shield button too... Blue Ninjakoopa 02:16, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok, just clarifying.Solid Snack 02:16, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Stub Removal

I removed the stub on this page since I added both the Vertical and Horizontal Momentum canceling charts. I also gave more information on momentum canceling in the paragraphs preceding the charts. Omega Tyrant (talk) 12:26, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Name Change

Shouldn't this technique and article be called "Momentum Negation"? Only in the case of DK's Spinning Kong and Game & Watch's Oil Panic is there truly momentum canceling. With other methods, players are just negating momentum, not canceling it. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS 10:55, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

It doesn't really matter what it "should" be called, since this is what people call it, and there's no known official term. Toomai Glittershine Toomai The Stats Guy 11:51, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
Ok then, just clarifying. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS 21:07, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

Spinnning Kong

Stop adding that Spinning Kong negates vertical momentum when it clearly does not. Final Destination's ceiling is not too low for the bair to not be completed fast enough. In my testing, DK was easily able to complete his bair and perform the Spinning Kong before he was Star KOd. But guess, he was KOd at 171%, the same exact percentage as with no controller input. If the bair was truly too slow, how come Mr. Game & Watch nair, a slower aerial, is able to be completed and allow Oil Panic to experience better results than the basic vertical momentum cancelling method? Simply put, DK's bair is not too slow and Final Destination's ceiling is not too low, Spinning Kong simply doesn't negate vertical momentum. Also, you again failed to provide any actual statistics. Don't try to refute my testing because you believe you saw Spinning Kong keep you from getting Star KOd without providing any statistics. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS 13:38, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry that's not true. If I could make videos, I'd make it clearly showing it. It is EXTREMELY clear that it does help vertically. I wasn't wrong. With you forcing me to show stats. OK I'll say this. Link's Utilt in Japes with no DI, just Momentum Canceling KO DK in Training mode at 194%. Same but using Up b helps until 200%. With an even higher ceiling (in Custom Stages) the difference becomes ridiculously clear. If DK had Meta Knight's Up Air, he could easily survive in FD vertically longer, but without a such fast aerial, it's just too late when he can move in FD. Firewario (talk) 20:42, June 20, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I tested it again and you were right. I'm sorry for the way I treated you, I done this testing long ago and I did test it, but I believe I tested it at the percentage which he dies at while using basic vertical momentum cancelling. I admit I was bias against you dut to your failure to respond to previous conflicts between us. In testing, he survived up to 179% in Final Destination from Olimar's dair. Even though it does negate vertical momentum, it is impractical for vertical momentum cancelling as he can survive up to 185% using the basic method. On a final note, don't ever call my information fake again, if you believe you find a fault in it, bring up on the talk page first. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS 21:31, June 20, 2010 (UTC)

I didn't mean bad by calling it fake by any means (just an alternative way of saying "it's not true") but if it didn't stop vertical momentum then you could have thought that DIing up would be a terrible idea, which it isn't, and it is a better idea than not DIing at all because that decreases the distance DK travels thus he has less time of pulling off the Bair+Up b.
