A proposal has decided this article shall be merged with Meta Knight. (discuss)

Drill Rush (originally known under the name "Triple Dash"[1]) is Meta Knight's side special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. It is based on the move of the same name when Kirby obtains the Master ability in Kirby & The Amazing Mirror.

Meta Knight flies forward in a spinning motion, continuously hitting any opponents in his path for the move's duration. While Meta Knight is moving, the player can change his trajectory by tilting the Control Stick or Circle Pad. If the attack ends in the air, Meta Knight is left in a helpless state, unable to use another move until he lands. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, hitting a surface while Meta Knight is in motion causes him to bounce off of it, automatically ending the move.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, Drill Rush is given two customizable variants:

The first variant is High-Speed Drill, which increases the speed and the distance of the move, but it deals less knockback than Drill Rush, and its trajectory can't be altered either.

The second variant is Shieldbreaker Drill, which delivers greater damage to shields, but it deals less knockback overall, and does not travel as far as the other Drill Rush variants.
