Gunship FS lasers

First-person view

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Zero Suit Samus has a new Final Smash known as Gunship (Starship in Japanese). Due to the removal of character transformations in Samus and other characters, Samus and Zero Suit Samus are now separate characters that cannot transform mid-match. Though suited Samus keeps her Zero Laser without the disadvantage of shredding her Power Suit, Zero Suit Samus' Power Suit Samus attack from Super Smash Bros. Brawl is rendered moot. In her new Final Smash, she jumps up into her Gunship (taking its Metroid: Other M appearance), which flies offscreen and resurfaces in first-person view. Samus can then fire twin lasers at enemies for a short period of time. The Gunship is also part of Samus' entrance, which in Brawl was her standing up out of her crumbling Power Suit.

The attack bears similarities to Snake's Grenade Launcher Final Smash in Brawl, as well as the Dragoon item in Brawl and the fourth game.


"Samus's spaceship carries her through space and serves as her base of operations during her missions. Zero Suit Samus will call down and board her Gunship with her Final Smash. Once she's in the pilot's seat, she has a short time to unleash up to five powerful shots from the ship's weapons. Foes aren't safe even hiding off-screen!"
