Power

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
SSB4-3 Icon.png

Powers are a customization option in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS that can only be used in Smash Run. They are like a simplified form of Brawl's stickers - each power grants an effect to the user, limited by the character's weight and speed. The primary difference between powers and stickers is that while sticker effects are passive and always-on, powers have limited uses and must be activated by tapping them on the touch screen.

While customizing, Powers can be given "favorite" status. When selecting powers randomly, or playing as a random fighter with customization turned on, only favorite powers will be chosen unless all favorite powers have already been selected.

Trophy description[edit]

Power trophy in for 3DS.
North America In Smash Run, you'll sometimes see a yellow bag emblazoned with a question mark. Enemies occasionally drop them when defeated, or you can pick them up in treasure chests. Inside you'll find custom goodies, but you'll have to wait until the end of the run to find out what you've picked up!
Europe In Smash Run, you'll often see yellow bags emblazoned with a question mark. Enemies sometimes drop them when you defeat them, or you can pick them up in treasure chests. There are special Powers inside that you can use in Smash Run later, but you'll have to wait until you clear the current game to find out what you picked up!

Trivia[edit]

  • The Power Bomb and Shinespark powers are references to the abilities of the same name from the Metroid series. Power Bombs can be dropped to deal massive damage to enemies and destroy particular structures, while the Shinespark allows Samus to boost in any direction at high speed.
  • There is a glitch where, if one uses the Devil's Pact power, they can be stuck with the outline for the remainder of Smash Run.
