In Super Smash Bros., the weapon was composed of a long pink blade of energy and had extremely long reach. The Beam Sword can also be thrown as an excellent projectile weapon for moderate damage. A thrown Beam Sword would also knock the foe back quite a ways.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Beam Sword has a purple hue and its blade is shorter. However, the length of the blade changes depending on who picked the weapon up. The size also changes according to the strength of the attack – a Smash Attack gives the blade its maximum length. Throwing the Beam Sword results in minimal damage in this game, as well as a severely reduced knockback.
The Beam Sword returns in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where it takes on a new bluish-white hue; in this game, however, when used with a smash attack, the sword extends, allowing for the weapon to have a longer range.
Beam Swords reappear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with a new design. The blade has a shape most similar to that of Super Smash Bros. Melee, as well as graduated colors of red and blue. Unlike in Melee and Brawl, the length of the blade is constant between characters.
The Beam Sword reappears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, retaining its appearance from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.
