Well, this is undoubtably going to be my last Smash Bros. Brawl update here, so I might as well take it while I can.
Today's update: Zero Suit Samus's special moves.
<Standard Special Move: Paralyzer>
Bzzzzzzzzzzt! I can?t get enough of this.
A personal protection device, the paralyzer stuns opponents. If you can charge it up for a bit, you can land additional attacks while your opponent is stunned.
But this is only self-defense at best. It does not have the power of an explosive attack. Where and when you use this is key.
What really brings out some characteristic Samus skills is when this gun transforms and releases a whip: the Plasma Whip.
<Side Special Move: Plasma Whip>
The flash at the tip of this short whip is quite powerful!
<Up Special: Plasma Wire>
Shoot it straight up to pull enemies toward you!
These two moves can be used to grab and hang from an edge. They can reach even if the ledge is pretty far away, so pay close attention to distance and timing and aim to dangle from the edge.
Pzzzzt! What a magnificent edge grab!
~Not a bad moveset, I suppose, though most of the specials deal with that plasma whip...
From the looks of it, the whip's sweetspot will be at the tip, kind of like how Marth's sword was most powerful when he hit an opponent with it at the very tip of it.
