Samus's Screw Attack in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The Screw Attack is an upgrade from the Metroid series that appears as one of Samus's special moves throughout the Super Smash Bros. series. As her up special move, Samus quickly somersaults into the air, surrounded by an electrical field that continuously damages any opponents caught in it.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, this move has two unlockable custom variations. The first is Screw Rush, which quickly sends Samus diagonally up rather than directly up and deals more damage. The second variant is Apex Screw Attack, which only deals damage at the beginning and peak of the jump.

A Screw Attack item also appears in each installment, though it is somewhat different from this move.
