On-Screen Appearance Edit
A Formula-model Skell flies overhead and Elma jumps out of it, landing in a crouching position before standing up and readying an assault rifle.
Victory Fanfare Edit
The victory fanfare used by characters of the Xenoblade Chronicles series in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U is reused for Super Smash Bros. Strife. The fanfare is an excerpt of You Will Know Our Names, a battle theme from Xenoblade Chronicles.
Victory Poses Edit
All three of Elma's victory poses are variations of a similar animation: Elma looks around on high alert, before lowering her weapon and speaking one of several quotes:
- "Strength comes from experience, that's true on any planet."
- "That put a dent in 'em."
- "Hostile neutralized."
- "I'm putting an end to this!"
- "You had your chance."
That one animation has two other variations, with Elma holding two blades, two rifles, or one rifle. Depending on whichever weapon she holds, the final idle animation is slightly different, as is her entrance.
