Genesect is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Madness, having both strength and speed on its side. Interestingly, it puts projectiles in its cannon for later use, firing the projectile from its cannon (Such as the Super Scope or Fire Flower).

Special Moves

  • B: Metal Claw: Genesect swipes in the air with his claws, doing weak damage but Genesect gains ground.
  • Side: Flame Charge: Genesect runs to the side, burning nearby enemies. It leaves a burning effect.
  • Up: Flight Mode: Genesect turns into its Flight Mode and flys into the air before returning to his normal form.
  • Down: Magnet Bomb: Genesect releases a bomb from his back. It sticks onto foes and the ground and explodes after five seconds, dealing heavy damage. The bomb cannot be passed around. If on the ground and someone steps on it, the bomb explodes.
  • Final Smash: Techno Blast: Genesect goes onto the upper left or upper right corner of the screen (whichever is closer) and releases a huge beam of energy from its cannon. The beam can be aimed around when it is fired. The Normal Drive is balanced, Burn allows burning damage but less knockback, Douse deals more knockback, Chill freezes enemies in their tracks, and Shock deals electric damage.


  • Up: A red ball of energy forms on the top of Genesect's cannon before retracting back into the cannon.
  • Down: Genesect swipes its claws in the air quickly.
  • Side: Genesect's eyes flash a different color and changes its plate (Normal, Burn, Douse, Chill, Shock, in that order).


Genesect flys around in its Flight Mode before crashing to the stage in a cloud of dust.

Pit Conversation

  • Pit: Fine, tell me about this guy then.
  • Hades: Ah, Genesect. An ancient predator reborn as a mechinal puppet... What a laughing stock.
  • Pit: You shouldn't disrespect him like that, Hades.
  • Hades: And what are you going to do about it, Pitty?
  • Pit: ...
  • Hades: I have you there. Now, Genesect can store projectiles in his cannon, so keep an eye out.

Trophy Description

Genesect is the result of Team Plasma modifying an ancient predator. It is driven by instinct and is a deadly threat. The cannon on its back allows it to defend itself from foes. It is unknown what Genesect once was, but some say it came from the Kanto region.
