Main article: Powers

Powers are special abilities used exclusively for Smash Run. Each power has a level, a weight, and a certain amount of uses. Higher levels of powers are more powerful and have more uses, but they also weigh more. How much weight a character can hold depends on his or her speed. Higher speed means less weight and therfore less amount of powers to carry.
