Effect Zelda or Sheik surrounds herself in magic and transforms into her alternate form.

Transform (シークチェンジ and ゼルダチェンジ) is a technique hailing from The Legend of Zelda series also usable by Zelda and Sheik in the Super Smash Flash series.


The move consists of Zelda surrounding herself in magic to transform into her alternate form Sheik, and vice versa, dealing no damage or knockback.

In Super Smash Flash

In the original Super Smash Flash, Transform is Zelda's and Sheik's down attack, in conjunction with Nayru's Love. Once the barrier from Nayru's Love has vanished, the user will have immediately become their alternate form. However, Transform can be cancelled by moving in the other direction while the barrier is still out.

In Super Smash Flash 2

In the reboot, Super Smash Flash 2, Transform has turned into Zelda's and Sheik's down special move. Zelda and Sheik use magic to transform into their alternate form. The user now surrounds herself with sparkling magic, starting at her hand, and lights up before changing into her alternate form. While the magic is appearing around her, the move has invincibility frames, allowing the user to dodge an attack completely while transforming if timed correctly.


Sheik using the Triforce of Wisdom to transform in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Transform is based on a later scene in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time where Sheik reveals to have been Zelda in disguise all along. Using the power of the Triforce of Wisdom, she is able to physically change her appearance, allowing her to disguise herself by changing her clothing, hair, eye, and skin color. When Sheik reveals herself as Zelda, she crosses her hands while the final Triforce piece appears on her hand, and then spins toward the screen, revealing her to be Zelda. This holds true in SSF2, as the magic the user transforms with starts at the hand.

The sound that plays when the user transforms is the traditional "secret revealed" and "puzzle solved" jingle from The Legend of Zelda series, originating from the original The Legend of Zelda.
