Ivysaur about to attack a Smash Ball

A Final Smash (Japanese: 最後の切りふだ Final Trump) is the most powerful move available to playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Each has their own personal Final Smash, which is activated by obtaining a Smash Ball. Due to the nature of the Final Smash, Smash Balls are a unique item in that they must be attacked several times to obtain them and then they can still be stolen by attacking the player who possesses it.

Volt Tackle

Volt Tackle (Japanese: ボルテッカー Voltteccer) is Pikachu's Final Smash. A ball of blue energy surrounds Pikachu. Pikachu can then fly through the air, hitting and heavily damaging its opponents. The player may also press the standard attack button to increase the mass of the energy ball, causing more damage to be inflicted at the cost of the attack becoming harder to control.

Triple Finish

Triple Finish

Triple Finish (Japanese: さんみいったい Trinity) is Pokémon Trainer's Final Smash. Whichever of the three Pokémon is sent out at the time will be able to attack and break the Smash Ball. As soon as this has been done, and the Final Smash has been activated using the Special attack button, Pokémon Trainer will send out the other two Pokémon, and the three will group together to perform their moves. As the move is readying to be fired, a Generation IV-styled text box will appear at the bottom of the screen stating, "Take that! Triple Finish!" At this time, Charizard uses Fire Blast, Squirtle uses Hydro Pump, and Ivysaur uses SolarBeam.

When the move connects, the text box will change to state, "It's super effective!", a reference to dialog displayed in the main series games.

Aura Storm (Japanese: はどうのあらし Wave Storm) is Lucario's Final Smash. Lucario jumps up into the air and uses aura to unleash a powerful beam attack. The beam can be controlled by tilting the Control Stick. Lucario can also slightly damage opponents if it comes into contact with them while jumping up at the start of the Final Smash.

Puff Up

Puff Up (Japanese: おおきくなる Grow) is Jigglypuff's Final Smash. It inflates itself until it fills the stage and then deflates. Anyone touching Jigglypuff when it reaches its maximum size will be sent flying.

A glitch has been discovered that allows Jigglypuff to remain this size on certain stages such as Bridge of Eldin, though Jigglypuff will be sent offscreen for a KO if it moves around too much.


  • Only Pikachu and Pokémon Trainer's three individual Final Smashes are actual moves, and all of them have 120 power in the games.
  • Charizard uses Fire Blast six times during Triple Finish. In the main games, this would require at least one PP Up.
  • Although Volt Tackle deals recoil damage in the main series games, Pikachu takes no damage from using it.
  • Volt Tackle's appearance and behavior is derived from its namesake, Pulseman's Voltteccer.
