Final Smash Mega Lucario/Aura Storm

Lucario makes its third appearance as a playable character to the Super Smash Bros. franchise in Super 5mash Bros. 5. Lucario utilizes powerful Aura techniques to smash around enemies and the most damage he gets; the stronger his attacks become. His Aura mechanics from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS largely remain the same without much changes. Aesthetically, Lucario's appearance is based off his Pokken Tournament model.

The combo only happens if it connects with an opponent.
Custom 1 Speedy Close Combat 2% (hit 1), 7% (combo clean) 5% (combo late) 5% (hit 2) Lucario dashes forward with its foot extended out but won't launch into the attack but Lucario will just pass through.

Custom 1 Hi Jump Dash 0% Lucario doesn't perform any kicks but it has enhanced horizontal and vertical recovery. The better the Aura, the higher Lucario goes.
Custom 2 Hi Spinning Jump Kick 3.5% (per hit) Lucario jumps and performs 5 rotations while kicking. It does more damage but has has shorter recovery distance.
Down Special Flash Cannon 15% (base) Lucario gathers all of his Aura and releases it in one very damaging but laggy blast. The less amount of Aura (less amount of damage it has), the faster and weaker it is. The more damage Lucario has, the more powerful and bigger it will be. However, it halves the damage done by Aura attacks and weakens it for a duration of time.
Custom 1 Conscious Flash Cannon 12% (base) The damage it does has been decreased as well as knockback but the attack doesn't half the damage of Aura attacks but only by a 3/4th's.
Custom 2 Berserker Flash Cannon 20% It does much more damage but not only does but instead of weakening the Aura attacks, it sets it to 0% thus meaning Lucario at 150% does the Aura damage of a Lucario at 0% damage.
