Team Healer (チーム回復だま, Team Recovery Ball) is an item introduced to the Super Smash Bros. series in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. 4.


The Team Healer will only appear in Team Battles, provided the Item Switch settings allow for it. A player that grabs the sphere can heal a teammate by throwing the item at their character (as such, the player cannot use the item on themselves). However, if it hits an opponent instead, it will either deal 8%Super Smash Bros. Brawl/9%Super Smash Bros. 4 damage with medium knockback or have a 25% chance to heal them by 11%Super Smash Bros. Brawl/7%Super Smash Bros. 4. Oddly, the same also applies if it hits a teammate while Team Attack is on. The amount allies are healed is 0.3× their current damage. In Brawl, allies are healed an extra amount based on how fast the Team Healer is moving following the formula 7.6 + 3s where s is the speed of the Team Healer; a point-blank smash up-thrown (speed of 4.1) Team Healer will heal and extra 19.9%, point-blank smash forward-throw (3.64) is 18.52%, and a Team Healer that is falling at its maximum fall speed (1.5) is 12.1%. Unlike other healing items in Brawl, if eaten it will have no effect, though in SSB4 it will heal 1% as other non-healing items do. The Ice Climbers are capable of using the item on each other as teammates.

In Stamina matches, the amount healed is a little more than the equivalent percentage due to rounding in a different direction.


In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Team Healer
A healing item. Hit a teammate with this item in Team Battle to reduce your ally's accumulated damage. You can throw it at an enemy, but the damage inflicted will be minimal, so you're better off using it to help your friends. This item will not react if attacked. Oh, and one more thing--you can't reduce your own damage by tossing the item up and letting it hit you. Sorry.

Team Healer
Ntsc An item exclusive to team battles. If you throw it at injured teammates, it will reduce the damage they've taken so far. It can be used against your foes as well, dealing a little bit of damage, but it can sometimes heal them, too. That's the last thing you want!
Pal This item only appears in Team Battles. Throw it to a teammate to reduce their accumulated damage. Alternatively, you can throw it at an opponent. But since it only does a small amount of damage and there's a chance it'll actually heal them instead, why would you bother doing a thing like that...?

  • In Brawl, Team Healers can do damage and knockback to characters with invincibility (they will miss intangible players), such as that created by the Super Star.
  • The item's trophy is labelled "Team Recovery Ball" when listed on a Subspace Emissary level completion screen.
  • The item can also appear in battles without teammates. As long as the game mode is set to Team Battle, and the Item Switch settings allow it, this item can appear in a match.
  • The Team Healer and Spring are the only items in Smash 4 not to be present in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    • The Team Healer's absence in Ultimate is possibly due to the Healing Sprout, a new item in that game, having a similar function.
