Finishing Leap (フィニッシングリープ) was originally Sora's up special move in Super Smash Flash 2 that replaced Glide in v0.8a of the demo, and it was subsequently replaced by Aerial Recovery in SSF2 Beta. Sora would perform a rising jump slash that deals 9% damage with his Keyblade. It could be cancelled before Sora flips by any attack, but this would also cancel most vertical momentum. It was one of the few up special moves that does not grant helplessness. Finishing Leap was most commonly used as a recovery option when close to the stage, but it could also be used as a potent out-of-shield option to escape pressure and begin combos. The attack also could be used two times if used on the ground.
