The Rocket Belt is one of the several flight modes available in the Pilotwings series which also appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When equipped, it allows players to continuously fly as long as the jump button is held down, similar to R.O.B.'s Robo Burner move. If the player flies for too long, however, the player is unable to fly for a short time; in that case, instead of blue flame, black smokes come out from the vent of the Rocket Belt. After the Rocket Belt is used up, it flies straight into the air, which can also hit and carry opponents with it.

This item is basically two jet engines with a belt connecting them. If you pick it up, you'll be able to soar through the air. It has a limited amount of fuel, but it can recharge when you're on the ground. It's especially helpful for returning to the stage when you've been launched. An item made up of two jet engines fitted to a belt. Equip it, then press the jump button or hold Up while in mid-air to fly. The jets don't last forever, so you have to touch down after a bit, but you can charge them up on the ground and blast right off again! Very manoeuvrable and great for making tactical recoveries.

Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.
