Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing Medium Punch, followed by forward and Heavy Punch in succession during mid-jump, Poison performs a backhanded slap. If the initial attack hits, she follows up with a horizontal lash with her whip in midair that knocks her opponent to the ground. 

Tactics[edit | edit source]


This attack is one of Poison's aerial target combos, including her Slap & Smash. The first hit is also one of her primary air-to-air moves. It has a fairly quick startup and decent range for a Jumping Medium normal. The first attack also puts her opponent in a juggle state, allowing Poison to finish the target combo with her second attack that's visually the same as her Whiplash. This target combo sends them back almost fullscreen, which is further than her Slap & Smash target combo. Even though Poison doesn't get much follow-ups from that distance, it pushes them back to where she can zone out her opponent with her long-range special attacks.
