The Marth Killer is a technique in Super Smash Bros. Melee that can be used to edge-hog a recovering Marth. It involves using the light shield on the edge of the stage, facing towards the center, and is most easily performed by rolling towards the ledge, holding Z, and pointing the shield downwards. As Marth attempts to grab the ledge with the Dolphin Slash, the edge guarding character is knocked onto the ledge and the Marth falls to his death. This technique can be performed by any character when their shield is large enough to avoid getting shield stabbed.
