Dashing is a form of ground movement that is faster than walking. In Super Smash Flash, all characters automatically dash when moving forward, as it is not possible to walk. In Super Smash Flash 2, dashing can be performed as per configured by the player; either automatically whenever the player moves left and right or when the player hits either the left or right button twice in a row. When performed, the character enters their initial dash animation before proceeding to their running animation. The concept of initial dash is also the basis of other techniques such as dash-dancing.
