Unleashing a unique Super power Attack
Final Smashes are recurring attacks in The Legend of Zelda series.
A Final Smash is an elaborate and powerful attack that can be used after grabbing an object called a Smash Ball, but can only be used once per Smash Ball. While performing a Final Smash, many characters gain auras around their body and the background darkens.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Link and Toon Link share their Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Triforce Slash. Princess Zelda and Sheik both use the Light Arrows. Ganondorf transforms into Ganon, resembling Ganon's appearance from Twilight Princess.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U
Link and Toon Link use the Triforce Slash once more in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Princess Zelda and her alter ego, Sheik, use the Light Arrows. Ganondorf transforms into Ganon, once again resembling the Ganon from Twilight Princess.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Link, Zelda, and Sheik receive new Final Smashes that are better suited for them. In reference to Link being from Breath of the Wild, his new Final Smash is the Ancient Bow and Arrow where Link fires a straight-forward arrow at his opponents. Zelda's new Final Smash is known as the Triforce of Wisdom where she casts a sealing Magic that pulls nearby enemies into the Triangle grip dealing damage. If a fighter's percentage is 100 or higher, it is an automatic defeat. Ganondorf's Final Smash is still similar to previous incarnations but instead of turning into the Dark Beast Ganon from Twilight Princess, he now transforms into the beast form from Ocarina of Time. Toon Link continues to use the Triforce Slash for his Final Smash as well as Young Link and Sheik's new Final Smash is called the Sheikah Dance where she rushes at the opponent, upon catching one, a Sheikah symbol will flash on the target before a series of slashes occur.
Easy Final Smash
An Easy Final Smash, also known as a Pity Final Smash, randomly occurs when a fighter has been KO'd a numerous amount of times and have respawned on stage with the ability to perform a Final Smash. Usually, in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, a fighter would have to be at least 5 points behind the fighter in the lead. If a Smash Ball is on the battlefield already or if a fighter already obtained one, an Easy Final Smash will not occur.
Final Smash Meter
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there is a new rule added called Final Smash Meter where fighters can charge a meter until it is full to unleash a weaker version of their Final Smash. The Meter can be charged by dealing and taking damage. With this rule, it is possible for more than one fighter to have their Final Smash abilities at the ready to be activated, however, each Final Smash must happen one at a time. When a fighter claims a Smash Ball, it will instantly fill up the meter and reset after being used.
