This article is about the move from Mario Tennis Aces. For Duck Hunt's standard special move in the Super Smash Bros. series, see Duck Hunt § Trick Shot.
Mario performs his Trick Shot.

The Trick Shot is a move introduced in Mario Tennis Aces. When used, it increases the player's energy significantly, but is a risky maneuver. If the player struggles, they may waste their energy, or lose a point. Each character has their forward/backward Trick Shot and their side Trick Shot.


There are two ways the player can perform the Trick Shot:

  1. Hitting the ball whilst using Right Stick.
  2. Pressing the Single Joy-Con Top Button/X Button twice whilst moving in the direction the player wants to go.
