Negative Zone is Luigi's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is rather a bizarre Final Smash, in which after Luigi uses it, he starts dancing around in a strange way, while Arabian-style music plays. A large greenish circle appears on the stage, which has a fairly large radius. Everything in the circle is altered to look like an inverted image, hence the name. Any opponents caught in the circle can be affected by a variety of effects, such as uncontrollable taunting, falling asleep, and even constant tripping. Even airborne opponents are affected by this move, which can easily stop from recovering.
Opponents can escape the circle and possibly avoid the effects after leaving the circle. They are affected while the circle is still on the stage, and will stay affected a little bit after the circle disappears. Luigi is not affected by this move in any way, except for being slightly slowed down. The effects wear off after a while, after the circle starts to shrink.
The effects include the following:
- Drastically reduced attack power
- Greater launch distance when hit
- Increased likelihood of slipping
- Steady increase in damage percentage
- Flower growth on head
- Uncontrollable taunting
- Sudden sleepiness
- Decreased movement speed
- Tumbling midair (the player cannot use their midair jump)
The move is original in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Its name refers to the fact that every color viewed through the bubble is changed into its negative color, although it is stated in Luigi's Final Smash trophy that Negative Zone is fueled by Luigi's dislike of being in Mario's shadow.
