General information
Effect Releases colorful smoke.
First appearance Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008)
Latest appearance Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (2018)

The Smoke Ball is an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that returns in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Although it does not do much damage, it emits colorful smoke into the air, which can be very distracting to the players. It is also hard to see what moves are being used, and it makes it difficult to see what's going on. Players can pick up the item, and take it, or throw it somewhere else. It can also be thrown onto players, in a similar fashion to a Gooey Bomb.

Smoke Ball File:BrawlTrophy518.png Wii Super Smash Bros. Brawl An item that activates when tossed and fills the area with clouds of obscuring smoke. The smoke slowly changes color over time, from white to yellow, orange, red, purple, and finally blue before restarting the cycle. The smoke hangs around quite a while before dispersing. You can pick up an active smoke ball and hurl it again. Be careful not to lose track of yourself, though.

Ack! It's hard to see through all the smoke this ball lets off. You can throw this around a stage, obscuring the view, or stick it to opponents and really annoy them. The smoke itself doesn't do any damage, but there's definitely an advantage to concealing the battlefield. A pesky little item that produces a thick cloud of smoke wherever it's thrown, making it impossible to see properly. You can pick it up and throw it again as often as you like. Try hitting an opponent with it - it might stick to them! The smoke itself is harmless, but it's great for ambushing!

Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.
