Super Smash Bros. Melee Character Grab Ranges.
It is important to remember that this table displays grab range as defined by me. I define it as the distance from which one character can grab another, and I measure from where the character is standing (essentially the mid-point/back legs).
This leads to seemingly mystifying results. For example, Bowser has a ‘terrible’ grab; however, in the table Bowser’s grab range is ranked as the 6th farthest. Bowser’s grab range is high because I measure from where the character is standing. Bowser happens to lean forward a significant amount, thus raising his perceived range.
At first glance, one may wonder why I did not change my measuring methodology. However, I feel change is not needed. He still doesn’t beat Marth 😉
