Samus returns yet again to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super Smash Bros 5. Samus remains mostly the same from the last game with a few slight changes. Aesthetically she looks like a mix between her look in Other M and the Prime Series.
Changes from SSB4
Samus’s up special has been nerfed
Her dash attack is now stronger
Her standard special now does more knockback but slightly less damage
Specials and Final Smash
Samus charges up a powerful beam which she can shoot across the screen.
Charge Burst – Samus instead of shooting the beam concentrates it into a single blast which does more damage but has significantly smaller range.
Samus fires a missile which homes in on opponents. However if the move is imputed like a smash attack a stronger missile which doesn’t home in will be shot.
Ice Missile – Samus shoots a missile that does not home in and freezes opponents. However the move does less damage.
Samus uses a screw attack which makes her spin into a ball upwards.
Screw rush- Samus performs a screw attack diagonally upwards that doesn’t go as high but does more damage.
Samus morphs into a ball and drops a small bomb. If she is hit by the explosion it will propel her upwards.
Power Bomb – A bomb that when placed takes longer to explode but is more powerful and has a significantly bigger blast radius.
Samus fires a powerful laser. She can control which direction it fires by pressing up or down.
