Luigi Cyclone (ルイージサイクロン), is a recurring attack used by Luigi in the Super Smash Flash series. It works similar to the Mario Tornado with a few exceptions.

Overview

In the original Super Smash Flash, Luigi Cyclone is Luigi's down aerial. The move is almost a "carbon copy" of Mario's Mario Tornado, save for a less duration of time and a bigger hitbox.

In the reboot, Super Smash Flash 2, it has become Luigi's down special move. Luigi can now slide across the stage while performing the move and it only hits twice. However, it functions like a recovery move and a vertical KO move, much like Mario Tornado does. Luigi Cyclone takes elements from Luigi's Super Smash Bros. Brawl incarnation recovery wise, while his hits and power from its original Super Smash Bros. incarnation.

Origin

The Luigi Cyclone is likely based on the Spin Jump that originated in Super Mario World. The Spin Jump has lower vertical range than Luigi's jump but deals more damage, can jump on hazardous enemies, and can break rotating blocks. In Super Mario Galaxy, both Mario and Luigi have a spinning attack very similar to the Mario Tornado and Luigi Cyclone. The spinning attack from Super Mario Galaxy made them gain some vertical height when used in the air, just like Luigi Cyclone and Mario Tornado, although in Super Mario Galaxy the spin acted more like a double jump.
