Link performing the Triforce Slash
|Use(s)||Unleash a Final Smash|
The Triforce Slash is Link's and Toon Link's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. While Toon Link retains this Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Link has a new Final Smash, which is based on Breath of the Wild: it involves him firing an Ancient Bow.
When Link or Toon Link pick up the Smash Ball, they gain the ability to unleash a Final Smash. When activated, the Triforce on the back of Link's hand glows, and if hits an opponent, it traps them as Link repeatedly slashes him or her with his Sword. Each strike deals 4% or 5% of damage depending on the range. During the fifteenth strike, all the opponents trapped in the attack but the primary target are ejected. The final seventeenth strike causes 18% of damage with a high knockback. The Triforce Slash can cause a total of 83% of damage in Brawl and 69% in the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U versions.
Although both Final Smashes deal the same amount of damage, the range and knockback of Toon Link's attack is shorter than Link's.

Triforce Slash (Link)
|Super Smash Bros. Brawl||Link with a Smash Ball, releasing his ultimate attack. Light flares from the Triforce symbol on the back of his hand and rushes out to meet the enemy he faces. The enemy gets trapped within the glittering Triforce, is quickly cut to shreds, and is launched by the last strike. The attack works on one enemy at a time, so it's best to go after the character in first place.||Clear All-Star Mode as Link|
Triforce Slash (Toon Link)
|Super Smash Bros. Brawl||Toon Link's Final Smash. Hit an enemy with the light emanating from the Triforce mark on his hand to initiate the move. The enemy will be trapped within the Triforce and be unable to move--Toon Link will then rush in close and carve up his foe at lightning speed. The final blow will break the Triforce prison and send the opponent off the screen.||Clear All-Star Mode as Toon Link|

|181||N/A||-||Link makes use of the Triforce of Courage to trap foes, and then he launches a 16-blow combo. The final, mighty blow has the power to launch opponentes of the stage. When Link prepares the attack, the ray of light he emits must strike a rival, or the attack will fail. Shielding will do nothing to stop this powerful attack.||Clear All-Star mode as Link|
|Triforce Slash (Link)|
|193||N/A||-||For Toon Link's Final Smash, a ray of light emanates from his hand, and whomever the light touches gets trapped in the Triforce. While they're defenseless, Toon Link strikes at foes repeatedly and then launches them a great distance. Just be sure to time the Final Smash well-if the ray of light doesn't touch anyone, nothing happens. At all.||Clear All-Star mode as Toon Link|
