Too lazy to read the signs in front of the castle to learn the controls? Press Z in the air.

Press Z in the air.

That depends on what is going on. If you are in a dive position, then you can not dynamically do a ground pound. But if you're in a basic falling position, then you can press Z while in the air to pound the ground; do this when closer to the ground to take little (or hopefully zero) damage.

Most often, you can single jump and then press Z to ground pound. Double jumps and triple jumps can also end up with a ground pound. When it comes to battling the Big Boos, I crouch then backwards somersault (jump button) to gain enough height when the Big Boo comes close enough, then ground pound to hit the Big Boo.

Strange, it looks like some of Chrisjh0223's post got cut off. Can you re-post that Chris?

There you go Buzsaw. ^_^

Your post is still getting cut off. Hmm, I'll probably have to get some help on this issue.

Problem solved. ZIMM's overly large URL was causing the problem; since that was modded you'll see fine now.
