What it is

Anti-air involves opposing attacks from the air. In fighting games, this involves intercepting the opponent’s jumps. Moves particularly attuned to this are known as anti-air moves.


Within this definition, anti-air generally refers to ground-to-air, as opposed to air-to-air. The general idea is to drop an opponent in midair from the ground.
