First appearance Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008)

A Timer is an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and later appears in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The player can pick up this item to slow down the flow of time for all other players for a short time. Occasionally, the Timer has a different effect and only slows down the one who grabbed it, or it may slow down everyone. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the background turns purple, while players that are slowed down are surrounded by a spiralling effect. The trophy information states that the timer always benefits the user, even though it is possible for it to backfire.

Timer File:BrawlTrophy499.png Wii Super Smash Bros. Brawl An item that slows down time and your enemies' movements. Only the player who gets the item will move at normal speed. You should enjoy a huge advantage in both attacking enemies and snagging items that appear. If an enemy manages to get to a powerful item first, you'll be able to shield and dodge and keep any damage you take to a minimum.

Grabbing this will make time flow at a different pace around you. Everyone else will slow down, letting you grab all the items and get in some blows. Sometimes, though, this item backfires and slows you down too. Worst case, it may actually slow ONLY you. That's not so great... Pick this up to make time move slowly for everyone but you! With the timer in hand, grabbing items and attacking gets much easier, so if someone else gets it, start defending yourself. Timers can be a little hit or miss, though. It might slow time down for everyone, or maybe just for you!
