Judge (known as Judgment in Super Smash Bros. Melee) is Mr. Game & Watch's side special move in the Super Smash Bros. series. When used, Mr. Game & Watch will attack with his hammer and hold up a digital display with random number (ranging from 1 to 9) on it. Each number has a different effect on the victim(s) and possibly Mr. Game & Watch himself. The effects associated with numbers follows:
Custom variants of Judge appear in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U:
Extreme Judge only picks numbers 1 and 9. Getting a 1 causes Mr. Game & Watch to take 5% damage, while a 9 delivers a high knockback attack, but the attack offers less knockback than getting a 9 with the default Judge.
Chain Judge removes all the extra effects that are used with the default Judge. The attack instead deals hits equal to the number that's picked, with higher numbers offering stronger knockback with their final hits.
