Peach Bomber (ピーチボンバー, Peach Bomber) is Peach's side special move.

Overview[edit]

She lunges her butt towards her opponents after a stationary twirl and blasts them with a powerful explosion. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the explosion has flame effects, but in Brawl and Smash 4, it is filled with hearts.

Using the Peach Bomber on most walls in the game will cause Peach to rise upward a tad. This can help with recovery on stages with vertical walls, such as Yoshi's Story and Fourside. The technique can also be used to stall a match, as Peach can continue to bomb the walls, keeping her alive and out of range from most other characters who would be KO'd if they were to try to go and attack her. Use of the technique in this fashion is banned in most tournaments.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it has been altered visually to have a heart-shaped explosion when the attack connects, rather than a normal explosion. This version of the attack covers more distance than in Melee. Also, it can no longer be used to bomb walls for vertical height gain. However, if a wall is destructible, such as those in Shadow Moses Island, Peach can still rise a tad upward. There is also more start-up lag. It can be used for recovery since it covers horizontal distance in both games. The move now auto-sweetspots the ledge as well.

In Super Smash Bros. 4, the move has a faster start-up than in both previous games, as Peach executes the attack almost immediately without twirling first. It can also hit shields. However, it only deals 10% damage (rather than 15% in Brawl), and has much more end lag, limiting its recovery potential. The move now leaves a trail of hearts. Its ability to rise on a wall is retained from Melee, to an extent.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the move deals 12% damage and more knockback, and can deplete half of a foe's shield; it also has less startup and ending lag. The move's range can be extended by using a smash input when performing it.

Daisy Bomber[edit]

Daisy Bomber (デイジーボンバー, Daisy Bomber) is Daisy's variant of the move. It is functionally identical to Peach Bomber, but has yellow flower particles and extra petals instead of pink heart ones. As with Peach Bomber, the move's range can be extended with a smash input and deals considerable shield damage. Unlike Peach, Daisy has an energetic smile when performing the move, which is most notable in game finishers and close ups.

Customization[edit]

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

1. Peach Bomber 2. Flower Bomber 3. Flying Peach Bomber

"Jump sideways and deliver a powerful hip bash." "A hip bash that plants flowers on enemies' heads. If you miss, you're left open to attacks." "Rise into the air and deliver a hip bash. Harder to land, but it's more powerful."
  1. Peach Bomber: Default.
  2. Flower Bomber: The move has a shorter startup time, and when landed applies a flower to the opponent, which slightly increases the move's overall damage potential (10% -> 12%) despite the attack itself dealing reduced damage (10% -> 4%). However the dash is shorter, and as a result of the move's lower initial damage, is much weaker knockback wise, lacking the ability to KO at relevant percents. Additionally the opponent can mash to make the flower fall off much sooner, potentially reducing the move's damage potential below that of the default.
  3. Flying Peach Bomber: Flies upwards at an angle, and deals 2% more damage on hit, however has somewhat increased ending lag in the air. The move also deals slightly more knockback, killing earlier, despite reduced knockback growth. Since it travels slightly higher, it can be used as a means to recover, however the end lag of the move proves to be detrimental, as it causes Peach to fall downward significantly. However, it has almost no ending lag if she lands on the stage. This customization adds fire effects and damage, similar to its Melee counterpart.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite the description in Brawl's manual, the move is not boosted by Explosives Attack stickers; instead it is boosted by Body Attack stickers.
  • By using only this move alone, it is possible to defeat Petey Piranha without ever getting hit or touching the ground (aside from when the battle starts).
  • Throughout the Smash games (Melee to Ultimate), in-game descriptions have had Peach/Daisy Bomber described as a hip bash. However, the princesses are actually striking with their buttocks.
