Wolf's Side B is an attack that mainly allows him to come back on the field and is difficult to use in the neutral since it has a huge end lag during which Wolf will simply fall. It is besides one of the best way to commit suicide with the character. However, the Side B can also be used to inflict heavy damages or even to spike the enemy since Wolf will inflict a lot of damages and throw the enemy downward if he manages to end his attack at the place where his opponent is.
It’s a fast projectile that allows you to safely poke your opponent in order to deal some damages or to reduce the opponent's shield. On top of that, when you have the advantage, it is particularly useful because it will force the enemy to approach, as the Neutral B is superior than most of the game's projectiles.
It's probably the most useful move in Wolf's arsenal because it has everything you'd expect from a good tool in neutral: the range that makes it safe, great damages and a good frame data. Finally, at low percentages, the move also allows you to start a lot of combos or to put your enemy into interesting situations for you.
It is an excellent tool in edgeguard or when you get in disadvantage. The move has a good hitbox that allows you to push back an opponent who is too getting close, or to get out of disadvantageous situations. Finally, let's not forget that it is also a low percentage combo tool.
It is simply one of the best smash attacks in the game. The move is an excellent punishment tool because it has an excellent range and a very correct killpower. It's one of Wolf's best options to get rid of an enemy. Besides, you should not hesitate to use it to kill if your enemy misspaces one of his attacks on your shield or to cover a jump or a roll.
