Zero Suit Samus using Flip Jump in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Flip Jump is Zero Suit Samus's down special move in all of her playable Super Smash Bros. appearances, since Super Smash Bros. Brawl. When used, Samus leaps up into the air at an arc in the direction she is facing and lands facing the opposite direction. If Samus hits a wall during the jump in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, she automatically leaps off of it, and can do up to four wall jumps in this way; in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the player must manually press the jump button, but can still only do up to four wall jumps. Pressing a button during the attack causes Samus to kick downward at an angle that acts as a meteor smash when it hits anyone in the air when initially used. The player can choose the direction of the kick with the control stick.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the move automatically hits opponents when Samus comes into contact with them without having to use the kick. In addition, the move buries opponents when hit on the ground, and is a meteor smash when hit in the air. The player can also adjust Samus's angle mid-jump with the control stick.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Flip Jump's first custom variant is Shooting Star Flip Kick, which does not deal damage during the jump, and the kick is replaced with a falling kick that travels horizontally. The second is Low Flip, which does not jump as high but travels farther.
