Lip's Stick (リップステッキ, Lip Stick) is an item from the puzzle game Panel de Pon (released only in Japan), and is wielded by the main character, Lip. It appears as a usable item in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. 4.
In the Super Smash Bros. series
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Lip's Stick is classified as a battering item with a very helpful side effect; when a character is struck by the item, inflicting characters with the flower status. Tilt and smash attacks cause the item to release "dust" that has the same effect of flower growth, at the cost of dealing less damage and knockback than the flower itself. Repeated use of the item, as well as tilts and smashes with the item, cause the flower to grow bigger, making it last longer, and, thus, deal more damage. The item, however, has a limited amount of dust with which to grow flowers; once the dust runs out, the item can no longer attack from a range, though the player can still use it as a battering item. Furthermore, the dust that is released from the item is considered a projectile, and as a result, can be reflected and absorbed.
This magical stick was used by the character Lip in the Japanese game Panel De Pon, which was later released as Tetris Attack in the United States. Lip's Stick causes a flower to sprout from an enemy's head, inflicting damage as it grows. Quickly tap the Control Stick back and forth to get a flower off of your head.
The Flower effect caused by Lip's Stick is available as a modifier in the game's Special Brawl.
An item that causes a damage-dealing flower to bloom on people's heads. If you find yourself with a flower on your noggin, start rattling the Control Stick back and forth to shake it off. Some characters can pull off having flower-covered heads in style, while others clearly cannot.
Lip's Stick returns as an item in Super Smash Bros. 4, acting as it did in both Melee and Brawl. Furthermore, the "Flower" modifier is still present in the game's Special Smash. The damage it deals is now classified as a magic attack, creating sparkly effects with each hit.
Lip's Stick originates from the Japanese puzzle game Panel de Pon, which was released overseas as Tetris Attack with its characters replaced by characters from Yoshi's Island. The protagonist of Panel de Pon is the flower fairy Lip, who is seen holding the Lip's Stick (referred to in-game as simply はなの つえ "flower wand") on the title screen and in the background of puzzles.
In the Vs. Mode of Panel de Pon, if the player manages to get a combo or clear four or more blocks at the same time, a symbol flies over to the opponent's side, immediately followed by the appearance of a "garbage" block. If the player is playing as Lip, the main character, she visibly waves her flower wand at the opponent when this occurs, and the symbol and garbage block are flower-themed. The flower's continued-damage property in Smash may be a reference to how garbage blocks interfere with the opponent's gameplay.
