Lucario uses Extreme Speed as its up special move. When activated, Lucario performs a quick dash. Moving in different directions alters which directions Lucario will move. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, this move did no damage and moved at a set distance. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, in addition to doing damage, when Lucario builds up more aura, the move travels farther and does more damage.
