Ray Guns are items seen in the Super Smash Bros. series.
In the original Super Smash Bros., the Ray Gun takes the appearance of a small, gray gun capable of shooting lasers. The lasers travel quickly, with an audible bang, and deal low damage; however it is very easy to juggle opponents with timed blasts from the gun. It has enough power for sixteen shots, after which the Ray Gun becomes almost useless, only able to cause damage when thrown.
The Ray Gun returns in Super Smash Bros. Melee, with its appearance upgraded to a more futuristic look. The lasers travel more slowly, though they do the same amount of damage. There are still sixteen shots in a Ray Gun. Also, the loud bang accompanying the shots is replaced by a more laser-like sound.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ray Guns remain largely unchanged from their Super Smash Bros. Melee incarnation, aside from their appearance, which is much more highly detailed. They still fire their characteristic green shots and still have sixteen shots.
The Ray Gun also returns in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U. The gun has been completely redesigned for this installment, so as not to appear like an actual gun, and featuring an inverse Smash Bros. emblem inside the barrel. The gun largely functions identically to previous installments. The Ray Gun reappears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, retaining its appearance from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
|Super Smash Bros.
|The Ray Gun is toy-like in appearance and shoots short, fat, highly reflective beams of green light. The gun is fairly weak, but since it fires so fast, it can easily juggle enemies. It contains enough energy for only 16 shots. Try dropping it with a few shots left and watch your foes waste time and energy retrieving it.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
|N64 Super Smash Bros.
|A gun that shoots rays of light, as the name suggests. Its fat shape is not very realistic--in fact, it looks more like a toy than anything else. Its beams aren't very strong; they're fast and hard to dodge. In addition, they juggle whomever they hit in midair, making it possible to hit with one beam after another. By the way, it only holds 16 shots. When it's empty, you can throw it.

|Grab one of these to instantly feel like you're fighting the battles of the future! With the right timing, the rapid-fire green lasers can juggle fighters in the air, and they have the range to push foes off the stage. Unfortunately, even future weapons only have so much ammo. Make each shot count!
|Grab one of these to instantly feel like you could be fighting the battles of the future! The rapid-fire green lasers can be used to juggle fighters in the air if you've got good enough timing, and they've also got the range to push fighters off the stage from a distance. You get limited shots, though, so don't get too carried away by the future!
