Final Smash Crystal Flash


Zero Suit Samus is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. The most feared bounty hunter of the Galactic Federation without her Power Suit, you'd probably think that she would be very vulnerable when she's in her Zero Suit. However, she is equipped with her Paralyzer and Plasma Whip, both weapons with the power to shock and immobilize her enemies. So yeah, she's pretty much fine even without her armor.

Changes

Notice New taunt, which is her standard taunt.

Notice New victory poses, both vocal-wise and animation-wise.

Nerf ZSS no longer has her Jet Boots, this means she loses her good K.Oing potential from Super Smash Bros. for 3DS / Wii U. This also means she retains her Super Smash Bros. Brawl moveset.

Buff New down aerial, which is no longer a stall-and-fall and is a stomp that spikes opponents and bounces ZSS when it connects.

Buff New Final Smash, Crystal Flash, which deals more damage than her previous Final Smash and is a trapping Final Smash.
