The Smash Ball (Japanese: スマッシュボール Sumasshubōru) is a special item in the Super Smash Bros. series, first appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The Smash Ball is a magical item that unleashes a special power within whoever breaks it. Only one Smash Ball can appear on screen at once, and will never appear alongside a third Dragoon part or Mr. Resetti Assist Trophy.
The Smash Ball's appearance is based off of the logo for the Super Smash Bros. series: a circle with an off-centred cross on the left side. The symbol pulses various colours, as a rainbow aura flows from it. The Smash Ball floats around the stage until it is either broken or floats away.
The Smash Ball appears as a rare item in Super Smash Bros. Strife. The Smash Ball, when broken, will gift the destroyer with the power to utilise their Final Smash.
