Reversal Slash (逆転スラッシュ, Reverse Slash), known as Reflect Spin in the PAL version of SSB4, is one of three down special moves for the Mii Swordfighter.

Overview[edit]

When used, the Swordfighter performs a single rainbow-colored slash that flip enemies around as well as reflect projectiles. When used in the air, the Swordfighter gains a small boost in height, making this move a carbon copy of Mario's Cape.

In Ultimate, any projectiles successfully knocked back by this move deal more damage, and the reflecting hitbox lasts longer than both its previous version and Mario's Cape, though its damaging hitbox now starts at a later point during the move's execution.

Instructional quote[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Like Cape and Super Sheet, Reversal Slash can be used on a taunting character to make them face the other way in manners that are otherwise impossible. In SSB4, this only happens to characters who do not always face the screen regardless of their direction.
