Belay is a Special Move performed by the Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It was done by pressing Up+. Popo/Nana throws their partner up into the air, allowing them to use a belay to pull Popo/Nana upwards. It is also able to damage anyone who gets in the way of the attack. The attack is far less effective if only Popo/Nana is in the battle, where the solo Ice Climber performs only a little hop, and has no effect when used on the ground. Both Ice Climbers are put into a helpless state once the move finishes.
