Target All

Tidal Wave is a move used by Sushie in Paper Mario. This attack costs Mario six Flower Points and can be used once Sushie is Ultra Rank. It is an all-range attack in which Sushie bounces across the screen in many directions, hitting all enemies with water. Fire enemies are more susceptible to this attack and take greater damage from it. The action command involves pressing either A, B, or C-Down when shown on the screen as many times as possible within a time limit; failing to press any buttons results in no damage. It is an effective attack during the second half of the battle with Lava Piranha when he and his Lava Buds are cloaked in flames.
