a missleg transition executed as a swingthrough

The most common confusion for missleg comes in combos that have swingthrough like motions in them.  This trend is increasingly popular, and still widely misunderstood in terms of terminology.  Because the direction of flip must change, the in-air leg doesn’t always have a defined change in its line.  This somewhat breaks the norm for missleg, but because the overall function of the combination is more in-line with a typical missleg, and does not follow the parameter of conservation of flip in a swingthrough, it can be understood to be a missleg that acts like a swingthrough, such as in the example above.  Notice the similarity to a more well understood missleg situation, such as webster missleg GMS from a previous page.  The flip and travel are reversed.
