SSF Mario standard attack

Mario's standard attack: Fireball.

A standard attack in Super Smash Flash, called normal attack in the How to Play section, is an attack that is performed by pressing the attack button without inputting any movement key. The standard attack can be seen as the equivalent to the standard special move found in the official Super Smash Bros. games but in turn may also be similar to the actual standard attacks as well. It mostly includes projectile-based attacks, like Mario's Fireball or moves that slightly make the player skid a few inches after the attack was performed, like Sonic's straight jab; there are exceptions, though that keep the player in the same spot the move was performed, with no propelling happening, like Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch. Because of SSF's unusual physics, keeping the attack button pressed down will continuously spam the attack, with projectiles taking the advantage out of any other attack.

List of standard attacks

The following is a list of all the standard attacks in SSF per character, adding a brief description, and explaining if the attack is a projectiles and if it skids or propels the character forward in a single use.
