SSBM Statistics: Short Hop Heights

The original Super Smash Bros. Melee statistics thread by Mew2King has started to show its age. His data were sourced in 2003, so that’s no surprise.

I will provide updated statistics featuring more accurate measurements of heights and distances. My methodology will focus on the coordinates system in order to get highly accurate rankings of each character.

I am now in the process of updating these data. I am now able to convert coordinate values into meters , thanks to the Homerun Contest scale. So, now I will use that for all other data that relies on the X-axis.

New: For All Stats -> SSBM Statistics Master List

Short Hop Height

This table measures the height of each character's short hop. A short hop is a light press of the X or Y-button. The table is in descending order with the highest short hop on top.

The character with the highest short hop is Samus. The character with the lowest short hop is Jigglypuff.

    If you’re planning on expanding the Melee stats section it’d be interesting to see the full hop heights and the difference between full and short. I know the difference for Samus is fairly small.

      Yes, I’m currently completing the Melee stats it character by character. So I’ll post it all up once every character is complete. The full stats will include wavedash distance, full hop height, All B-special distances, etc.

      Good idea to specify the difference between full and short. I’ll most likely add that.
