10 signs you're the worst kind of Super Smash Bros player

Sure, you could button bash your way through Super Smash Bros. if you really wanted. But the most irksome players of Nintendo's classic brawler - the ones you wanted to throttle with a controller cable - would detect a weakness in your play style and incorporate what could be seen as some pretty cheap shots.

Exploiting stage gimmicks - like taking Mushroom Kingdom's floating platforms out of play or planting Motion-Sensor Bombs on the sole acid-proof platform in Planet Zebes - wouldn't typically cause debate, but certain tactics came with the caveat that your comrades would think less of you and your triumphs for implementing them on the regular.

Respect and bragging rights were everything in Super Smash Bros., and if you're guilty of the following behaviours outlined by Nintendo veteran Jose Cardoso, best you don't challenge your mates to another game any time soon.
