Item List

Last Updated:
All of the available items in the game are listed in this page. They are arranged in alphabetical order.

Assist Trophy

Origin: Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Description: This allows players to temporarily summon random allies. Some of them directly attack other players while some use their Powers to produce beneficial effects to their summoner.

Back Shield

Origin: Kid Icarus: Uprising
Description: Deploys a shield that will protect the player from back attacks. The shield has a considerable damage tolerance before getting destroyed.

Banana Peel

Origin: Mario Kart
Description: Any player who steps on this or gets hit directly will fall over.

Beam Sword

Origin: Super Smash Bros.
Description: Like other battering weapons, this replaces your side attacks while equipped. It also has longer range compared to other battering weapons and can extend its reach even more using stronger attacks.


Origin: Animal Crossing
Description: When thrown to a fighter, these bees will continuously attack him/her, dealing constant but small amount of damage. If the beehive didn't hit any fighter, the bees will be on standby where the beehive is and will attack any player that makes contact with them.


Origin: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Description: As the item's in-game description goes, this a potent throwing item for unsuspecting, heavily damaged opponents. When this item hits them and they're unable to escape, they'll be carried offscreen for a quick KO.

Blast Box

Origin: Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Description: This item can be carried and thrown, similar to Containers but will explode once enough damage is dealt immediately. One thing though; hitting a Blast Box with a fire attack can make it detonate instantly. The explosion can also damage you so be careful not to get caught in the blast.


Origin: Super Mario Bros. 2
Description: Primarily, these guys can be thrown to opponents to cause direct, explosive damage. Be warned though; these guys will activate and explode automatically if you hold them too long. Leave them alone in the battlefield and they'll walk around, detonating on any fighter that makes contact with them.


Origin: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Description: When thrown, Bombchus will follow the surface where they landed and will explode until their fuse runs out or hits someone.


Origin: Super Mario Bros. 3
Description: As the description suggests, a good way of increasing its power is by throwing it, land a few hits on your target and catch it. Repeat until it degrades.

Boss Galaga

Origin: Galaga
Description: Any opponent who gets caught in its tractor beam will be whisked offscreen. The captured player can escape as long as they haven't sustained too much damage. You can also force players into the beam by smashing them and launching them towards the beam.

Bullet Bill

Origin: Super Mario Bros.
Description: This turns the user to a giant bullet that travels in a straight line and pummel anyone in its way. Players must be cautious when using this since they can't change direction while the bullet is traveling, which can take them offscreen. After using the bullet, users revert back to their original form and if they're too far from edge of the stage, they have a risk of falling to their KO.


Origin: Super Mario Bros.
Description: As the description says, once deployed on the air or the ground, anyone who touches it will bounce. Placing this near the edge of a stage and launching enemies to that direction sounds like a good deterrent.

Bunny Hood

Origin: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Description: With this equipped, the jump height of the user will be significantly increased.


Origin: N/A
Description: Containers may contain other items inside when destroyed. There's a small percentage that these containers will explode upon destruction as well. These can be picked up and thrown towards enemies. Like Helping items, the selected stage affects what containers you'll get.

Description: These guys will wander the stage and when attacked, they'll retaliate by gangbanging the attacker with a bunch of chickens.


Origin: Kid Icarus: Uprising

Deku Nuts

Origin: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Description: Anyone hit by these nuts will either be dazed or launched, depending if they're on the ground or in mid-air.

Dragoon Parts

Origin: Kirby Air Ride
Description: This is composed of three parts. Collecting all three will automatically activate the weapon. The user must aim carefully and the Dragoon will sweep down and hit where the cursor was placed.


Origin: Kid Icarus: Uprising
Description: When fired, the drill bit will keep pushing the enemy across the stage while dealing repeated damage. The handle will still be left behind so you can throw this to your opponents.

Fairy Bottle

Origin: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Description: This item can only be used by fighters with more than 100% damage. If your damage level is way lower than that, you can use the bottle as a throwable weapon. Otherwise, make sure to pick it up and throw it off stage to prevent your opponents from using it.

Fire Bar

Origin: Super Mario Bros.
Description: This weapon has average damage and reach but it grows shorter as it degrades. Once it is down to 2-3 fireballs, it is recommended to just throw it away.

Fire Flower

Origin: Super Mario Bros.
Description: This becomes a flamethrower when used. The fire does push enemies a bit but it doesn't burst one, continuous fire. You have to keep pressing the attack button for it to spew flames.


Origin: N/A
Description: One of the common recovery items you'll find. However, the amount of damage they heal varies per food item.

Origin: Donkey Kong
Description: Upon picking this up, the user will just keep smashing the hammer. They can control horizontal movement but they can't jump so be careful when using this near holes and edges of the stage.

Hocotate Bomb

Origin: Pikmin 2
Description: Aside from launching and returning to explode, any unfortunate player that gets caught by the rocket during the takeoff will be launched offscreen for a KO.
