Aerial Sweep (エリアルスイープ, Aerial Sweep) is Sora's up special move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


Sora jumps upwards as he performs a series of spinning slashes, dealing multiple hits and damage, while saying either "Yeah!" or "Back off!" It is similar to Link's Spin Attack, with key differences being that Sora will always leap from the ground when using it, and his direction can be influenced left or right during ascent. It is best used as a K.O. finisher and can cancel into Sonic Blade at the peak of the rise, though the opposite action of canceling Sonic Blade into Aerial Sweep is impossible.

Data-Sora executing the move in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded

Aerial Sweep is a combat ability introduced in Kingdom Hearts, which allows him to attack aerial targets with a rising, spinning slash. In the game, Sora will learn the move if he is at level 30 with the Dream Sword, level 60 with the Dream Shield, or level 27 with the Dream Rod (Level 60, 84 and 36 in the Final Mix version). It costs 2 AP to equip. While the function remains the same, its method of learning differs in later games. In the original Kingdom Hearts, it only dealt a single hit, but later games gave the attack multiple hits, which is reflected in Smash.
