Smoke Balls in SSBB

Smoke Balls in SSBB

Cough. Hack. Sakurai has revealed a new item in Super Smash Bros Brawl. It's called the smoke ball.

This item deals no damage to fighters, and is merely for fun effect. When it hits something, the smoke ball begins releasing colored clouds of smoky goodness.


I'll take this home for my cat.


Wario, is that you?


Is there any wind in space?


They're coming in!

It looks like a golf ball.

Looks cool but I doubt it'd be that helpful.

This looks like a new way to strategize and play. Pretty cool. I just expected more after a three day wait.

Looking at the enviroment the ball is used, I've found out what the other adventure mode will be: space balls.

I don't think it would be useful in battling another player, but it would probably work on a com.

I have to disagree. It may not be the most useful item in the world, but judging from the range of the effect, it looks like it would be effective in masking YOUR OWN attacks (especially ranged ones). Imagine a Samus Blast just flying out of a cloud of smoke unexpectedly! Part of avoiding attacks is seeing it begin. This item may help land a few of those big strikes! On the other hand, confusing your enemy by throwing it where they are.. not so much.

The smoke ball may be useful in battle I think.

I hope this doesn't have a similar effect to Togepi blacking out the screen. That was the worst; it didn't help anybody. Still, the idea is neat. I like that part of it.

This is just like that invisible machine in ssbm, maybe they won't have it any more. I sometimes hated it because I can't see myself.

I agree with Crimson Hawk, only in reverse. Computer players will most likely "see" right through any diversionary tactics, such as the Smoke Ball or the Nintendog. A human player, on the other hand, relies on a clear screen for their strategies. If their view is blocked, they may not be able to repel your attack, or even know you're attacking until it's too late. Of course, distance attacks shatter everything I just said.

I remember in like Silver, Gold, and Crystal versions of Pokemon, they had Smoke Balls. I don't remember what they were for though.

It's cool, but it doesn't compare to awesome updates last week.

Its main purpose is probably for wi-fi. It'll be just like the nintendogs who block he opponents screen. Set it off and your opponents screen will be smoky but yours won't, giving you an advantage.

Kamehameha X, that's just what I was thinking. No one would know where you are, you pop out of the cloud, blast fully charged, and BAM! They'd never know it was coming.

Crimson Hawk said:

True Kamehameha X, you make a very persuasive argument. I agree with your statement.

In the third pic, you can still see the Pink wonder through the smoke. Unless the smoke is opaque, it's kind of useless. If it is meant to be used tactically, then the smoke is apparently dissipating.

I know! You can use the smoke ball to hide the fact you're about to do your special attack. Just imagine Mario's firestorm coming right out of a cloud of harmless smoke, and don't even get me started on Samus's special. Because once they see you're about to do a special other players will do everything they can to take as less damage as possible. On the other hand hitting unsuspecting players will maximize the damage. So I believe that this can be a critical item in quite a number of situations.

I'm not too crazy about this but I like the colors.
