Up special move
Up special moves are usually the main aspect of a character's recovery (except for Jigglypuff's Sing); using them typically covers the most vertical distance (and sometimes horizontal distance) out of any of the character's abilities, but renders the character helpless. Most up specials are designed to damage and disrupt opponents going for an edgeguard. As with up smashes, up specials can be used out of shield, where some of them (such as Whirling Fortress) are highly effective.
