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[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

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.

The flower effect done by Lip's Stick can also be applied by a number of attacks, such as Crazy Hand's throw and Togepi's Leech Seed.

Trophy info[edit]

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.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Lip's Stick was first confirmed to return in Super Smash Bros. Brawl when it was shown in a Smash Bros. DOJO!! update concerning Munchlax. It behaves the same way in Brawl as it does in Melee.

The Flower effect caused by Lip's Stick is available as a modifier in the game's Special Brawl.

Lip's Stick cannot give a flower effect to members of the Fighting Alloy Team, although it still deals a considerable amount of knockback when used on them.

Trophy info[edit]

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.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

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.

Trophy info[edit]

Lip's Stick
North America With this wand in hand, a simple flick of the wrist will sprout a flower from a character's head. If you keep on flicking, the flower grows larger. The bigger the flower, the more nutrients it craves, dealing more and more damage to the host. Shake it off by running around real fast!
Europe With a wave of this wand, make a flower bloom on your opponent's head. A lovely big flower. One that gets bigger the more times you hit them. It must be absorbing nutrients from its host, since your rival's damage will slowly go up and up while it's there. If this ever happens to you, try to shake it off by running around!

Origin[edit]

The title screen of Panel de Pon featuring Lip holding a flower.

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.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Brawl, when Mario is afflicted by Lip's Stick and does his side taunt, the flower will be on Mario's Cap, but Mario will still get damaged.
  • In the PAL release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the trophy for Lip's Stick erroneously identifies it as originating in Panel de Pon's Western counterpart, Tetris Attack (where neither Lip nor her wand appeared).
  • In concept art for Kirby Super Star, a Flower copy ability for Kirby was considered which would have given him a bow (resembling Lip's) and, seemingly, the ability to cause a flower to grow from an enemy's head to damage them. This may have influenced the design of the Lip's Stick item in Smash, as Kirby Super Star was also directed by Smash director Masahiro Sakurai.
