Effect Tails fires a round electric projectile from his Energy Ball Blaster.

Energy Ball Blaster (エナジーボール) is a projectile attack in the Sonic franchise also usable by Tails in the Super Smash Flash series.

Overview

The move consists of Tails taking out the Energy Ball Blaster, a small red arm cannon, and firing a round shot of energy from it that damages opponents hit.

In the original Super Smash Flash, Energy Ball Blaster is Tails' standard attack, up attack, and down aerial. The projectile fired by these attacks travels relatively quickly and disappears after traveling a moderate distance. In his standard attack, Tails fires the projectile forward, and it deals 3% damage per frame to opponents hit by it. In his up attack and down aerial, Tails fires the projectile upward and downward, respectively, and it deals 4% damage per frame instead.

In the reboot, Super Smash Flash 2, Energy Ball Blaster has turned into Tails' standard special move. The projectile now travels more slowly and with a shorter distance than in SSF. In addition, only one can be out at a time, as attempting to fire it again will just cause smoke to come out of the weapon. If used in midair, it shoots diagonally and pushes Tails upward a bit, unless smoke comes out instead. The projectile deals 9% electric damage and weak upward knockback to opponents hit. It has high priority and shield damage, and the attack itself has low startup and ending lag, especially when used on the ground.

Origin

Ground shot-1

Energy Ball's skill card from Sonic Battle.

The Energy Ball Blaster originates as a move called Energy Ball used primarily by Tails in Sonic Battle, where it serves as Tails' Ground Shot. It serves the same function as it does in the SSF series, as the user shoots a slow, yellow sphere-shaped energy projectile at the opponent. Similarly to how it works as multiple attacks in SSF, the player can fire the projectile in one of eight different directions with the directional inputs.
