Blade Counter (カウンター, Counter) is one of three down special moves for the Mii Swordfighter. True to its name, it is a counterattack. The Mii Swordfighter will lean back and hold its sword in reverse grip upon activating, and if hit with an attack while in this pose, retaliate with a slash of the weapon. The move does 1.25x the damage of the attack that hits the Swordfighter, with a minimum of 8% damage.

Overview

Strengths:

  • Counters enemy attacks
  • Multiplies damage of enemy attack into the counter-attack
  • Good for interrupting enemy combos or edge-guard attempts

Weaknesses:

  • Can be punished by a grab
  • Overuse of the move can lead to being easy to predict and punish

Blade Counter is a great move for players that like having a defensive option that can help them to escape from a sticky situation. The counter-attack will result in Mii Swordfighter taking no damage from the enemy attack, multiplying the damage of the enemy attack, and then placing this damage into the counter-attack; powerful enemy attacks make for devastating counter-attacks. The move is also great for escaping an enemy combo by interrupting it with a counter of their next attack or for foiling edge-guard attempts by countering an enemy down aerial. The Blade Counter is weak to grabs since they cannot be countered, and overuse of the move can make it all too obvious to an opponent that Mii Swordfighter is going to counter again, allowing them to punish accordingly.
