The Screw Attack (スクリューアタック) is an item from the Metroid series in Super Smash Flash 2. The silhouette of the Screw Attack serves as the series symbol for the Metroid universe in the game as well.

This item does not currently exist in the files of the game and will be added in the future update of SSF2 Beta 1.2.

Overview

When held, the Screw Attack alters the player's jumps to mimic the function of Samus' up special move, which is also named Screw Attack. The Screw Attack is a badge-like item that cannot be thrown, as it will be attached to the player once picked up.

Origin

Screw Attack Origin

The Screw Attack as it appears in Metroid.

The Screw Attack is a recurring power-up in the Metroid series that made its first appearance in Metroid. When equipped, it allows Samus to attack in the air while somersaulting, much like it does in SSF2, as well as to jump multiple times in the air. Since Super Metroid, the Screw Attack symbol has also served as the official logo of the Metroid series,

The design of the Screw Attack in SSF2 is based most closely on its design in the official Super Smash Bros. games, which itself is based on its design in the 2D Metroid games but with the colors changed to blue, with a bright yellow lightning bolt symbol.
