In SSB: Melee, Peach has an especially strong attack in the form of her down smash ("The Meat Grinder"), which as the wiki mentions, can deal 64.96% damage if all the hits land. When all the hits are landed, the opponent is effectively trapped in the down smash, taking huge amounts of damage, and often ending up being spit out in a random direction with great force. With this in mind:
How can I maximize my chances of landing all of these hits?
I've noticed that it is much easier to land all the hits against larger, heavier characters like Bowser or Ganondorf (probably because they cannot escape the attacks, and because they are more vulnerable to being hit by all the hit boxes). But how can I maximize my chances of landing all of the hits against smaller characters too? Is there a strategy that helps? Or is it more about timing and practice? Is it even possible to land all the hits against smaller, lighter characters like Pichu or Kirby?
