Super Smash Bros. How To Play: Items

The Smash Ball and a range of brand-new items.

 

 

 

All kinds of items appear during Smash battles. The item roster is the same for the 3DS and Wii U versions. Knowing how to use each item will definitely be an advantage on the battlefield!

 

Smash Ball

 

The Smash Ball is a mysterious sphere that floats around the stage. It will break once it takes enough damage. The player who delivers the last hit will be able to use a powerful move called a Final Smash, but only once.

 

entry5-1

 

Fire Bar

 

The Fire Bar from the Super Mario series has been transformed into an attack item! Hit an enemy with one of these and he or she will take damage, but every time you do so, the length of the weapon gets reduced little by little.

 

entry5-2

 

Steel Diver

 

This is a projectile weapon in the shape of an advanced submarine. It fires small, hard-to-see torpedoes that initially move slowly before speeding up.

 

entry5-3

 

Fairy Bottle

 

Picking up this item will heal 100 points of damage for a player–as long as the player was already over 100%. If a player doesn’t have enough damage, the Fairy Bottle has no effect, so the item’s usefulness depends greatly on the situation.

 

entry5-4

 

Super Leaf

 

Picking up this item will cause your fighter to sprout raccoon ears and a tail.

 

entry5-5

 

Beehive

 

Grab this and chuck it at an opponent. If it hits, the bees will swarm around your enemy and sting him or her for damage. However, if you hit one on the ground, the hive will shatter and the bees will come after you! Be careful around these things!

 

entry5-6

 

Home-Run Bat

 

With this item you can unleash a series of ultra-powerful smash attacks. Even if your opponent is at 0% damage, a good hit with this can launch them way off the stage. Swing away!

 

entry5-7

 

Bullet Bill

 

Use this item to transform into Bullet Bill and shoot straight at the enemy. Your Circle Pad or Control Stick input at the moment you trigger the item will determine your launch direction, after which you’ll fly in a straight line.

 

entry5-8

 

Cucco

 

Once it takes enough damage, a Cucco becomes enraged and calls its feathered friends in for backup, attacking the last player that struck it. As you’re intently attacking an opponent, be careful not to inadvertently hit a Cucco!

 

entry5-9

 

Daybreak

 

This sacred device comes in three parts. Gather them all to assemble the weapon and begin firing high-powered beams that ignore fighters’ shields!
