The Beam Sword (ビームソード, Bīmu Sōdo), referred as Saber in Super Smash Flash, is a long-range "battering item", similar in appearance to a light green lightsaber.
It appeared in the entire Super Smash Bros. series; over time, its appearance gradually changed into that of a lightsaber.
In Super Smash Flash
The beam sword is an item in Super Smash Flash and its design is based on the Beam Sword from Super Smash Bros. Melee.
In Super Smash Flash 2
The beam sword reappears in Super Smash Flash 2. Its design however has been changed to be based on Brawl's Beam Sword.
It can be used in the following ways:
- Melee Attack: The player can simply press the standard attack button to attack the opponent with it (7% damage).
- Dash Attack: The player performs this in the same way as they do a normal dash attack (7% damage).
- Smash Attack: This charges the power of the Beam Sword (21% damage). It might also change length to gain range.
- Throwing Item: The Beam Sword can be thrown at opponents to increase damage (Run + Throw = 13% damage, Throw = 7% damage).
