Fishing Rod (つりざお, Fishing) is Isabelle's side special move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Overview[edit]

Isabelle pulls out a fishing rod and thrusts the line forward. She can use this move to grab faraway enemies (even while airborne) and throw them afterwards, or as a tether recovery. Upon capture, Isabelle is subsequently capable of throwing the opponent in multiple directions. If she misses the opponent, she can leave the fishing rod out until she inputs it again, potentially capturing the enemy. Uniquely for a grab, Fishing Rod can be blocked by a shield.

Origin[edit]

A villager fishing in Animal Crossing

This attack is based on the fishing rod item from the Animal Crossing series. The rod is used to catch fish from rivers and other bodies of water. In the original games, the player must wait for the shadow of a fish to bite their rod, and once that occurs, the player must react with a timely button press in order to properly catch the fish.

Although Isabelle is not typically associated with fishing in the Animal Crossing games, she and other characters can use a fishing rod in Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival (and its Desert Island Escape minigame, which was later added to Animal Crossing: New Leaf in an update).
