An up aerial (上空中攻撃, Up/above/upper midair attack; commonly abbreviated as Uair or u-air, and referred to as AttackAirHi internally) is an aerial attack that is performed in midair by pressing the attack button and tilting the control stick upward. Its official term varies between titles; it is known as an up midair attack in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and an up air attack from Super Smash Bros. Brawl onward. Many up aerials are flip kicks, which have a wide coverage above the user. They also tend to launch the opponent at a predominantly upward angle, making them crucial for juggling. A lot of up aerials have a landing animation involving the character falling on their back and having to get back up.
