this isnt trip? Well, everybody call this trip McWolf 20:27, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Yes, the more technical term for this is tripping. We need to move this. Knife (talk) 22:35, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Where is the official source for the name? And how is "Tripping" more technical than "Slipping"? --Garlic Man (talk)

It could technically be both I guess. With the banana peel, it is slipping obviously, but when the charcter falls on their own, I guess that it's tripping.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Do we even need this article? It's nothing notable, just a feature that would also fit in the game's article as well. We don't have articles for game modes, so why should we have articles for features? I suggest that this info is moved into the game article. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 22:16, 8 January 2010 (EST)

Break the Targets!, Subspace Emissary(in fact, it used to be part of the Brawl article, but was separated), Home-Run Contest, Multi-Man Brawl, etc. to name a few game mode articles from the SSB series. --Garlic Man (talk)
Then we have an inconsistency here, because everywhere else, game mode articles like those get merged into their respective game articles. Why should SSB get a special treatment? - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 23:55, 8 January 2010 (EST)
Technically, Home-Run Contest, Break the Targets and Multi-Man Brawl are more like minigames then modes. That brings up a question: which is more major? The minigames or the modes? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
The mini-game comment Reversinator made makes sense. Tulip Shooter and Flutter Challenge from YIDS have articles as well(Just like there is no "YIDS Mini-game mode" article, there is no "Stadium mode" article for Brawl; only the games within the game mode). And the Subspace Emissary was split because the Brawl article was simply becoming much too lengthy, IIRC. --Garlic Man (talk)
Sounds reasonable.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

I think it's called "Pratfalling" because I saw in the VS records called "Number of Pratfalls" and think it means "tripping". Eh, actually, what do you think? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

I don't think it is pratfalling because I remember seeing the exact same record in Melee.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Nah, pratfalling isn't in the VS record in Melee. It's a bonus. But Brawl has it. And I don't know what that means since it doesn't explain it. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
The page's name on SmashWiki is "Prat Falling". Just so you know. Toomai 19:05, 13 April 2010 (EDT)

Yes, prat falling is the correct term. Reshiram.pngSupermariofan14Zekrom.png

The correct and official term is "Pratfalling", my reference is the record screen!
I'm moving it if no one opposes? Young M. Luma Young Master Luma.png  •••  

Does the word "Pratfall" have any roots? - Bill-tendo 23:02, 15 April 2012 (EDT)
