Special Custom Set B

Name Damage Description
Neutral Special Skull Hammer 32% (charged), 15% (uncharged), 12% (Toon Link) Toon Link can heave out the Skull Hammer by charging it. By releasing it the attack at its full power, it will do recoil damage to Toon Link. It has very high launch power and has a wide range of damage.
Custom 1 Erupting Skull Hammer 38% (charged), 22% (uncharged), 16% (Toon Link) Toon Link can swing the hammer which produces a large eruption that does fire damage with high knock back but does more to Toon Link.

Side Special Cane of Pacci 3% (trip), -1/2% (reflected Toon Link stabs the wand forward and causes the opponent to trip. It takes a good amount of precision to cause it to trip with a small window. It can also reflect back projectiles half the strength of the projectile reflected.
Custom 1 Sand Wand 8% Toon Link can fire out a sand barrier that launches opponents when summoned. It can also protect from attacks and projectiles to the extent that powerful attacks are blocked.
Custom 2 Whirlwind 0% When charged, it produces powerful gusts of winds that pushes away opponents. The wind speeds are stronger at the start rather than at the end as it lingers.
Up Special Deku Leaf 3% (gust), 6% (leaf) Toon Link uses a gust of wind that propels Toon Link upwards with the Deku Leaf. It will knock opponents up along wih Toon Link; putting them in a tumbling animation. The player can press the special button to cause the Deku Leaf to puff up; knocking opponents upwards.

Custom 2 Large Deku Leaf 3%, 10% (leaf) Toon Link propels himself upwards but at a less vertical distance. The Deku Leaf can puff up the leaf; causing more damage and knockback but resulting in it only three puffs and pushes Toon Link slightly downwards each time.
Down Special Iron Boots 15% (aerial) Toon Link dons on the Iron Boots which causes Toon Link to increase his weight for a period of time albeit at the cost of his speed, jump, and falling speed. However, his launch resistance causes him to be very resilient. While in midair, it will cause Toon Link to automatically fall down to the ground. Pressing down b after putting on the shoes will cause Toon Link to take them off. However, doing it 5 seconds after putting them will cause severe ending lag. The attack doesn't have much attack ability but putting it on the aerial can cause him to plummet; dealing damage. However, it can cause Toon Link to suicide if he is over the stage.
Custom 1 Magnetic Iron Boots 18% (aerial) The Iron Boots magnetize themselves to the stage, cementing Toon Link in which nullifies all knockback though weakens his defenses causing him to take more damage than usual. It does more damage when performed in the air.
