A meteor smash is an attack in in the Super Smash Bros. series and Super Smash Flash series that possesses a very low knockback angle, hitting the opponent almost straight down on contact. In most cases, it can be meteor cancelled by jumping or by using a recovery move. If it cannot be cancelled, then it is a spike, which sends the opponent downwards until the hitstun wears off.
In Super Smash Flash
According to the How to Play tutorial, meteor smashes are present in Super Smash Flash. This, however, is something really difficult to perform as the physics are very different to the official Super Smash Bros. games and some are not a certainty. More often than not, the player initiating the move would risk getting KO'd themselves. However, with good timing, some of the down aerials, such as Lloyd's Rising Falcon or Fox's Fire Fox, are guaranteed to KO most opponents at very low percentages.
In Super Smash Flash 2
The physics of Super Smash Flash 2 are changed to make them similar to the Super Smash Bros. games. Meteor smashes are easy to perform on this game but still require good timing to be performed correctly. The information on the section below is subject to change.
