Effect Luffy reaches both arms out to rocket into an opponent or ledge they connect with.

Gum-Gum Rocket (ゴムゴムのロケット) is Luffy's side special move in Super Smash Flash 2.

Overview

When performed, Luffy quickly thrusts both of his arms a great distance forward, even greater than that of Gum-Gum Pistol. If his hands come into contact with an opponent, he will grab them and then pull himself towards them at high speeds, slamming into them and dealing 10% of damage with weak upward knockback.

The move can also be used as a tether grab when connecting with a ledge to aid Luffy's recovery. It also restores Luffy's midair jump when used against an opponent, making it easier to follow it up with another attack, including another Gum-Gum Rocket. However, it is also risky to use off-stage due to its high amount of ending lag when not landed.

Origin

Luffy using Gum-Gum Rocket in the anime One Piece.

Gum-Gum Rocket is a frequent technique used by Luffy in One Piece. It is his main method of traveling long distances quickly and a way of landing powerful attacks on larger opponents. Much like he does in SSF2, he stretches out one of his arms or both and grabs a handhold, then retracts them, projecting himself high into the air at high speeds, over great distances, or even into an opponent. It was first developed when Luffy was a child battling against the king of Mt. Colubo, a giant tiger, with Portgas D. Ace giving the attack its name. This technique is oftentimes reckless, especially if not done properly, as Luffy has little to no control after launching himself, being unable to change directions in mid-flight and only able to slightly decelerate before landing.
