Strange DoT clip I found

Found it last night while messing around. Once the angle is ready, you can shield turn 180 degrees and do it facing the opposite side as well. When you clip, you get this sort of boost. A few of the times I tried jump slashing and actually recoiled pretty far. Still messing around with it.

This clip was originally discovered in 2008 or earlier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71pCMO4eidk
In combination with angled sidehops, it led directly into the discovery of door of time skip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsOMC8X9unc
So it's a pretty important clip, and it's well known and used in pretty much every speedrun of the game that isn't any%

I run any% pretty often. I know about the whole DoT skip thing too.

I just thought this side hop clip was interesting because it's just one side hop and 100% consistent.

A similar setup is used to do reverse Door of Time skip as child. If you do it from the other side, you can jumpslash to prevent voiding out.
