Special Move Breakdowns

Bow and Arrows

Shoots an arrow (two at once if one is picked up off the ground). Can be charged by holding the button.

Charging increases damage, distance, and speed. Can be used to gimp opponents recoveries, to stop an opponent's approach, for zoning, or to pressure opponents from afar.

Link performing the move Bow and Arrows.

Boomerang

Throws a boomerang diagonally. The control stick can be flicked for extra power and distance.

Launches opponents vertically while moving forward, and towards Link on the return with a weaker knock back. Can be used for combos, or defensively to cover risky options.

Spin Attack

Strikes opponents while spinning. Acts as a jump if used in midair.

A powerful attack on the ground when charged, or a reliable out-of-shield option that can KO at higher percentages. The aerial version can kill near the edges, and is a reliable vertical recovery, tho
