Main article, Soaking
Characters like Ganondorf and Wolf can use the water to their advantage. Considering their Meteor smashes frequently can cause them to fall faster and difficult to recover from, they are somewhat used to cause early K.Os. pinning opponents to the water and repeatedly using their meteor smashes will eventually drown the opponent. Why this is useful is because the water mechanism is to lift all players to the surface, the heavier the slower, you can keep floating back upward so if you miss you can try again. Eventually you will push the opponent so far down they will be K.Od. The key is to keep the opponent at sea, hence the term "Soaking".
