Effect on Player

Lets the player use their Final Smash.

The Smash Ball is an item found in the Super Smash Bros. series, first appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is a brightly colored, shining ball with the Smash Bros. logo on it.

During battles, the Smash Ball may appear at a random time and will begin flying around the stage. By attacking the Smash Ball and breaking it, the character that broke it will begin glowing and will be able to use their Final Smash. The amount of times needed to attack it differs each time it appears and is also dependent on the character's strength. If the players do not break it in time (or neglect it entirely), the Smash Ball will leave the stage. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the screen will flash and a gasp will sound when the Smash Ball appears, and the screen will dim slightly when the Smash Ball is collected.

If there are any Dragoon or Daybreak pieces on the stage, the Smash Ball will not appear, and vice versa. When a player is falling behind by a significant amount, they will act as if they have the Smash Ball when returning to the stage, called a Pity Final Smash. Additionally, the player can lose the Smash Ball if they are attacked enough times, which will have the Smash Ball begin flying around the stage again after being dropped.

Before the official announcement on Miiverse that Smash Balls would return, a Smash Ball is shown in the Villager's newcomer illustration.

This item can truly turn the tide of battle. Once broken open, a character's Final Smash will be unlocked. If your opponent collects this, you'd better brace yourself for a powerful special move. This item is pretty durable and floats around the stage, so timing and position are key.
