Find level nines impossible in Smash 4? Luigi shows you how to beat them!

Mewtwo was included in this, but this video was made before the other DLC characters were released, so they had to be done in a separate video. To see that DLC addendum, go watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is6taKZo010

For those skeptical of these being level nines go, view this video, which shows all the replay data for these matches (and accompanying clips), that show they are level nines https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xunf5xiKasA

For the Melee edition of this, see this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwDngBhmQXY

For the Project M edition, go watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfXhIbfKRVw

Also be sure to follow PL's Twitch http://twitch.tv/pastimelegends and Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/pastimelegends . Without Pastime Legends' support, I wouldn't have been able to get the new computer that made creating this video possible.

To cover a few common "debunk' attempts that I constantly see:

*"These aren't level 9s!"

See the prior linked video in the description showing the replay data for all the matches.

*"This was done in Training mode! He's controlling the CPUs!"

Why are there so many people that don't know how Training mode works? If this was done in Training, there wouldn't be any match starts, stock counts, match ends, timers, nor replays. Seriously, if you're going to try "debunking" this video, please learn how Training works before making an ass of yourself in the comments.

*"Luigi jumped against Wario when he got knocked off the stage!"

See that spring on Windy Hill Zone? You touch it, it bounces you automatically, nevermind the fact Luigi went way higher than he would with any jump and the very obvious spring sound that plays upon touching it.

*"Level 9 CPUs read inputs! If you don't do anything, they don't know what to do!"

Not an accusation, but it's a common explanation for this video that I see people keep passing around, that is completely bullshit. First, the AI does not "read your inputs", it's a stupid myth from the Brawl days that has been debunked over and over, AI just have frame-perfect reactions. Second, doing nothing doesn't "screw up" the AI, they fight just as competently (or incompetently) as before. What makes this video possible is simply the AI having terrible stage awareness, the act of doing nothing itself has no impact on the AI's play.
