Plasma Whip is Zero Suit Samus's side special move appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. When used, Samus shoots an energy whip forward that damages opponents nearby, the tip dealing the most damage. The body also pushes opponents toward the tip while the move is being used. The move can also be used as a tether recovery, having greater horizontal range but less vertical range than the Plasma Wire.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U the Plasma Whip has two custom variations. The first is Plasma Dash, which causes Samus to dash forward into enemies with her gun held out, damaging them and pushing them along; since the move no longer uses the whip, however, it cannot be used to grab edges. The second is Whip Lash, which can only hit at the end of the whip, and knocks opponents toward Zero Suit Samus when they are hit.
