The Yoyo Glitch refers to a glitch done using Ness' yoyo in Melee. It can be used to attack or grab with near limitless range or attach certain single-hitbox attacks to Ness' body. The discovery of the glitch was a collaborative effort between VilNess, LonelyNess, and Dan smith, and was spurred on by an innocuous video of an unknown Japanese player accidentally dropping a yoyo hitbox.

Mechanics

Ness' up smash consists of 3 parts each with its own hitbox: outreaching, spinning, and swinging. The Yoyo Glitch drops the last hitbox of the up smash onto the ground and leaves it there until Ness dies or uses a non-projectile attack.

How to do it

  1. Use Ness' up smash and hit any opponent or destructible part of the stage with the outreaching part of the yoyo. Charge the yoyo very slightly before releasing.
  2. Make sure that, after the yoyo is released into its upward swing, it doesn't hit anything else.
