—Description from Ultimate's Move List

Slash Launcher (ランチャースラッシュ, Launcher Slash), known as Surging Slash in the PAL version of Super Smash Bros. 4 and as Gale Stab (疾風突き) in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, is one of three side special moves for the Mii Swordfighter.

Overview[edit]

When used, the Mii begins charging. Once the move is released, the Swordfighter lunges forward, striking any enemies he/she happens to collide with. The move is very similar to Ike's custom move Close Combat.

As Gale Stab in Ultimate, the move's animation is changed from a sword swipe to a lunging stab. Compared to its previous counterpart, it now starts faster and deals more damage at full charge, though it now slows down towards its conclusion, and has been deprived of its ability to sweetspot ledges after hitting an opponent.

Customization[edit]

Special Move customization was added in Super Smash Bros. 4. These are the variations:

1. Airborne Assault 2. Slash Launcher 3. Chakram
