Effect Naruto throws a Shuriken straight forward.

Shuriken (手裏剣), was Naruto's side special move prior to v0.8a of the SSF2 Demo in Super Smash Flash 2, where it was replaced with Shadow Clone Toss and instead became a part of his back throw.


As a side special move, Naruto would throw a Shuriken straight forward. The projectile's range extended to more than the entire length of Final Destination. The projectile would deal 10% damage and horizontal knockback on contact, but little vertical knockback, which could be used to lock a character at higher percentages. However, the Shuriken also had terrible priority. The only character that was able to dodge it without pressing the shield button was Kirby, as he could just duck down and dodge it since his body was compact enough.


Naruto anime Shuriken

The Shurikens in the anime Naruto.

Shurikens are one of the more basic weapons seen in the Naruto series. They are sharpened, four-pronged metal stars and useful for throwing. They can also be used for close combat, but not very efficiently. Although small, they can be used to distract, pin down enemy shinobi, or if accurate enough, can kill or incapacitate an enemy. They have an open circle in the centre, useful for grabbing with a finger, to avoid cutting oneself, or to put thread through. The circle is also beneficial to the weapon's overall aerodynamics, ensuring more accurate trajectories.



Early design


  • Despite the basic Shuriken's black color in the anime Naruto, the weapon in SSF2 was white and blue until v0.9a of the demo.
