Super Dragon

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Super Dragon is Yoshi's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. It is based on Yoshi's shell-based abilities in Super Mario World. Upon activating the Final Smash, Yoshi will turn into a Winged Yoshi, allowing him to freely fly around the stage. Yoshi can ram into opponents to damage them, as well as exhale fire either as a continuous stream (which occurs when the attack button is not pressed), or in the form of a large Fireball (which occurs every time the attack button is pressed). In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Fireball explodes on contact with an opponent, whereas it pierces opponents in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. In this form, Yoshi cannot be KO'd by passing the blast lines, and he cannot be damaged. After some time has passed, Yoshi will return to normal.

Appears in:
Wii Super Smash Bros. Brawl
How to unlock: Clear All-Star Mode with Yoshi.
Yoshi with wings on his back that give him the power to fly freely across the sky. In this state, he can spew giant fireballs. He is more mobile and powerful, but the inertia makes movement quirky, so it takes some skill to master flight. Yoshi returns to a normal state after a set period of time has passed.

Wings sprout from Yoshi's back and he transforms into a super-cool dragon! While transformed, Yoshi is invincible and will constantly breathe fire. He can also ram into foes and shoot fireballs at them. The fireballs are great for launching foes and most powerful when used at close range. (American English)
A pair of wings appear on Yoshi's back, turning him into an angelic dragon. While the Final Smash is active, he can fly freely through the air, and is invincible to boot. He constantly breathes fire, can ram into opponents, and can also shoot fireballs that deal a lot of damage and have great launching power, especially at close range. (British English)
