Samus Side Smash SSBB

Samus's Side Smash in Brawl.

The Side Smash is an attack used by all characters in the Super Smash Bros. series. It is a reasonably powerful attack that is directed forward, and achieved by holding certain buttons for a few seconds. Samus uses several different Side Smash attacks in her Varia and Zero Suits.

Samus's suited Side Smash, the "Super Jab", has her thrust her Arm Cannon forward, dealing quick knockback and between 12-15% damage. This is her suited Side Smash throughout the series in her suited form. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, a small blast of fire will emanate from the Arm Cannon during this attack. It can also be angled.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zero Suit Samus's Side Smash is a quick, rather weak slash with her Plasma Whip that deals 14% damage. In Super Smash Bros. 4, Zero Suit Samus's Side Smash is changed to accomodate her Jet Boots. In the new attack, Samus will spin around and kick, and then follow through with a second kick after the spin. The first kick deals 5% damage, and the second 11%. At high damage percentages, this attack is a reliable killer.
