Energy is an attack type in the Super Smash Bros. series that encompasses energy weapons such as energy shots and the Beam Sword. While the descriptions of absorbing attacks often mention that they can absorb energy-based attacks, whether an attack is absorbable is an entirely separate property to the Energy type.
Energy attacks are boosted by Energy Attack stickers in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's The Subspace Emissary, and the Support Spirit skills Energy Attack ↑ and Energy Shot Attack/Resistance ↑ as well as certain Spirit Battle conditions in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Energy attacks are resisted by the Support Spirit skills Energy Shot Resistance ↑ and Energy Shot Attack/Resistance ↑ in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
