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. This move is very similar to the move Counter.


Slip Counter is an extremely useful move both in the center and at the ledge. If an opponent cornered Mac at the ledge and is going for a launching smash attack, Slip Counter is the way to go; just be sure not to let it loose too early and don't use it too often--throwing out counters all day will get Mac grabbed time and time again. It has a self-destruct risk if done in the air.
