Helicopter Kick (昇天スピンキック, Ascending Spin Kick) is one of the three up special moves of the Mii Brawler.


When used, the Brawler will spin-kick diagonally above themselves and hit multiple times. The move provides moderate horizontal and small vertical recovery, and the kicks have good range that lead into a powerful finisher, which can serve as a horizontal KO move. It deals 18% damage if all the kicks hit. Despite its inferior recovery in comparison to the Brawler's other up specials, it is the most commonly used due to its damage racking potential combined with its ability to be quickly used out of shield, as well as being easily able to combo out of a down throw and KOing at low percents when used near edges.

In Ultimate, the move's upward momentum while used on the ground has been greatly improved, but its knockback has been nerfed, thus removing its ability to cause early KOs.
