The Taunt

Today's topic is going to be a little more chill. We're going to talk about one of Thor's most fun moves.



His Mighty Speech is a pretty unique special move in that as you long as you hold down the H button, Thor will rapidly charge his Hyper meter gauge at the bottom of the screen. It is also unique in that he can cancel any of his special moves that end on the ground with this move. So if Thor shoots a projectile, for example, he can instantly cancel into his Mighty Speech. This has very little use in combos but it's there.

The Mighty Speech can only be cancelled in two ways. Either you can release the button which will make Thor put his hand down and go back to neutral stance or (since it's a special move), you can cancel it directly into a super such as his Mighty Punish command grab. This is the only way to remove all the lag from it but burning a super is kind of counter-intuitive to what the taunt was being used for. You'll get like +1000 style points though.
