Flame, also known as fire, is a kind of effect in the Super Smash Bros. series that debuted in Super Smash Bros. Targets hit by flame attacks are momentarily set on fire, flashing red and orange, and in Ultimate, will appear visibly scorched.
In addition, flame attacks have several other effects:
Flame attacks are boosted by Flame Attack stickers in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's The Subspace Emissary and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate by the Primary Spirit skill Fire Attack ↑, the Support Spirit skill Fire & Explosion Attack ↑, as well as certain Spirit Battle conditions. Flame attacks are resisted by Flame Resist stickers in Brawl and the Spirit trait or skill Fire/Explosion Resist ↑ in Ultimate. These attacks also deal more damage to fighters equipped with a Primary Spirit with the trait Fire Weakness in Ultimate.
Flame is by far the most common "elemental" attack in the Super Smash Bros. series, with over half of Brawl's roster having access to at least one flame attack. Most explosive-type attacks use the flame effect.
