|Final Smash||Zero Laser|
Samus is a returning playable character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. Samus is the most feared and respected intergalactic bounty hunter of the Galactic Federation, who constantly saves her home planet, Zebes, and other planets from threats, like the Space Pirates leaded by Ridley.
Samus retains her Super Smash Bros. Melee SFXs for when she jumps, and when she uses her Charge Shot, Missiles and Screw Attack.
Samus can now crawl via Morph Ball like her previous roll animation, giving her a drastically smaller hurtbox, and has gained a new crawl attack based off of the Boost Ball from Metroid Prime. In addition, Samus remains in Morph Ball mode when she stops crawling while the crouching button is held and can even plant bombs on the ground.
Samus can now swap between flame and ice beam types with side taunt; this affects her down tilt, side smash, up smash, Bombs, forward aerial, Charge Shot, and Missiles, giving her a new variety of attacks.
Samus can now tap the attack button during her forward smash to release a flame burst, akin to SSB3DS/WU.
Samus retains her Super Smash Bros. Brawl neutral aerial, which is weaker than her former neutral aerial.
Samus's down aerial is slightly faster, making it easier for the move to connect.
Charge Shot can be charged in midair by holding down the special button.
New down special, Melee Counter from Metroid: Samus Returns. It acts like a counter and deals more damage.
- The move cannot be used for bomb recoveries.
- Samus can crawl, and can do two crawl attacks.
