In the Metroid Prime Trilogy and Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Samus Aran and the Federation Marines are able to perform a Strafe/Dash 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.
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.
