Final Smash Inazuma Lightning

Takamaru stars as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros 5. Similarly to Little Mac in Smash 4, Takamaru appeared as an Assist Trophy before becoming a playable character in the next game. Sakurai also stated shortly after the release of Smash 4 that Takamaru was cut from the roster of that game. He aesthetically looks as he did in Smash 4. Takamaru is a character that uses many tricks and swift attacks in order to defeat opponents. This includes his ability to go invisible, which allows him to surprise his opponents.

Up Special Rising Sun Takamaru’s katana lights on fire and then Takamaru performs an upward somersault. When using this moving Takamaru moves so fast that he looks like a ball of fire, like the sun. This moves acts similarly to Samus’s screw attack. Rising Flip – Takamaru perform a somersault which propels him high into the air. This move does no damage however.
