In the Metroid Prime Trilogy and Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Samus Aran and the Federation Marines are able to perform a Strafe/Dash[1] to avoid attacks from enemies. A Strafe/Dash is performed by locking onto an enemy or scan target and pressing B. Samus or the Marine then strafes either left or right. It can be done repetitively.

Notably, in Metroid Prime a Strafe/Dash can be used to get the Space Jump Boots early. The Strafe/Dash is a precursor to the SenseMove.

Nintendo LandEdit

Samus Aran's Gunship has a form of Dash attack. By clicking the GamePad control stick, the Gunship will charge forward. There is a short cooldown period, represented by a small meter onscreen. This Dash is used as a means of propulsion, and must be performed to begin training exercises.
