The Geno Beam is a special attack that Geno starts with in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is a straightforward beam attack that hits one enemy. Timing it right will increase the amount of damage dealt. According to the instructions, to time it correctly, a player must press and hold button and then release when the third star on the star meter appears. It requires 3 Flower Points.
It is one of the few moves in the game that does not add a sound effect when the player timed hit is done right, however, Geno will "jump" quite high into the air when the timed hit is done correctly agaisnt airborne enemies.
