Sheik using Bouncing Fish.
|Universe||The Legend of Zelda|
|Effect||Sheik leaps forward with an arced kick to bounce off opponents she makes contact with.|
When performed, Sheik flips with an arced kick forward in the air, leaping a small distance in upwards. She then kicks diagonally downward with both feet out. If it connects with an opponent, Sheik will bounce backwards with a higher arc off of the opponent, dealing 12% damage with high knockback to them. However, if Sheik misses, she can be left vulnerable to be punished by opponents with another attack.
Despite its ending lag, Bouncing Fish provides a decent horizontal recovery with the distance it covers, especially as it does not leave Sheik helpless afterwards. Additionally, unlike in official Super Smash Bros. titles, Bouncing Fish is not limited to one use; instead, it can be used any number of times.
- Prior to Beta, Sheik's side special move was instead Chain. It was changed to Bouncing Fish due to Chain being considered a bad move by the developers, with poor damage and high lag.
