While Jigglypuff in the latest Smash entries isn’t quite up to par to the brokenness of Melee’s Jigglypuff, the balloon Pokémon is armed with quite a few tricks in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Compared to previous incarnations, Jigglypuff’s Sing special is more potent than its ever been in Ultimate. Up until now, this move was considered to be completely unviable and was almost never used since opponents tended to wake up before Jigglypuff was finished.
However, now it’s apparently possible for a player to force an opponent to sleep with Jigglypuff’s sing via a tech read and then… go to bed? 24K recently demonstrated the classic Sing to Rest combo for Jigglypuff with an added twist.
Upon forcing the opponent to tech roll on a platform, 24K was essentially able to score an unavoidable Sing. As he did this, he shouted out “Go to sleep!”
One might think that 24K was talking to his opponent, but it seems like he was also talking to himself. After confirmed that the opponent was sound asleep, 24K initiated a transition to the… “bed cam.” Yes, that’s apparently a thing that 24K planned for.
Amazingly, 24K had the opportunity to rest in real life while performing Jigglypuff’s guaranteed Rest KO against the opponent within the game itself. Based on how 24K’s eyes are closed, it seemed like he managed to land the combo without even looking at the screen.
At the very least, it looked like he positioned his hands and controller to block his view of the screen. Did 24K practice doing this combo without looking in preparation for this moment?
You really have to see it to believe it in the clip below:
