Upon using this move, Palutena summons a spherical explosion in front of her a set distance away (increased by a smash input in Ultimate). This explosion expands and engulfs any opponents trapped in it, causing steady damage and trapping opponents, similar to the Smart Bomb. It is unable to hit anyone directly in front of her, but if she is moving – falling or on a moving platform – the explosion will appear in relation to where she was when the button was pressed (indicated by a flash) instead of where she is when the explosion begins.
Special Move customisation was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:
Explosive Flame is an offensive power that Pit or a fighter can use in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is functionally similar to a Smart Bomb; when used, an explosion appears in front of the user, trapping any enemies and dealing damage. In Uprising, though, this explosion's center lies on the ground forming a hemispherical shape, and is much larger than its incarnation in Smash.
