Neutral

Not to be confused with being at neutral frames

Technical Definition-Situations in a match where neither player is at an advantage. Both players are close to mid screen (neither is in a corner) at a distance that is roughly equal in advantage for both characters. In these situations, players are said to be "playing neutral." When both players are in neutral, players often play footsies in order to land a hit on their opponent and start their offense. Players are often reset to neutral after certain situations in a match such as the start of a round or after teching a throw. Can also be used to describe an attribute held by a player or character. The strength of a player or character's neutral is is determined by how easily they are able to land a hit on their opponent in these situations. Sometimes referred to as "the neuch."

In Other Words-The neutral zone in hockey (also known as center ice) is the area of the ice between the blue lines (highlighted in pink in the diagram below). It is neither the attacking nor defending zone for either team.
