The Drill is an item appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When used, the player fires the drill bit as a projectile. The drill flies across the screen, damaging and carrying any fighters that get caught in its path along with it to potentially off-screen and KO them. The projectile can only be used one time; after that, the weapon's base can be thrown at other fighters.

You only get one shot, but if that shot hits enemies, it will drill into them, doing continuous damage and carrying them back. Don't forget to throw the base at them afterward, adding insult to injury! The drill may look like a blunt tool, but it is actually a single-use ballistic weapon that uses the drill bit as a bullet! Shoot the drill into an opponent and its point will fly straight and true, inflicting continuous damage and eventually knocking them over.
