Active Input is something unique to Scythe and can give you an edge on players specially ones that don’t know about this unique feature. Active Input is when you input something while in the middle of a move to get a different outcome. Most of them have ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ versions. Here are the moves that have active input.

Side Light – For the soft version let go of your directional key in time before the attack ends. Hold it for the hard version.

Down Light – Same as Side Light, let go for the soft, hold it for the hard version.

Neutral Air – For the soft version, hold the opposite key of where you’re facing. If you let go you do the hard version.

Down Air – This one doesn’t have soft or hard versions, instead it just changes which direction you throw your opponent. So hold the direction you want to throw an enemy when doing it.

Edge Guarding

The best way to edge guard with the Scythe is using the Down Light, the hard version of it. It has enough distance to keep you safe as well as hit the enemy when you time and aim it right. Mix it up by dashing and using Neutral Light + Side Air or Recovery if they go up high.


One of the things the Scythe has is its near instant ground pound move. Unlike other weapons where it does a short animation usually downwards and locks you into it, the Scythe doesn’t have that problem. You can easily do a ground pound and jump back up or follow up with something else quickly without waiting for the animation to end.

Side Air + Neutral Air loop – The most common and loop you’ll get with Scythe, almost everyone knows how to use this.

Soft Side Light + Neutral Light + Soft Neutral Air + Hard Down Light – A much more complex combo and takes a bit harder to master.
