Exploding Side Kick (爆裂サイドキック, Exploding Side Kick?) is one of Mii Brawler's Neutral Special Moves. It is a kick wrapped in flame that goes forward a very short distance, but causes large damage and knockback to opponents. Its attack power increases when the user preforms a Reverse Exploding Side Kick, like Falcon Punch.
- Super Armor just before the kick is launched
- High damage and knockback
- Good kill move
- Can be reversed to increase damage and knockback
- Slow execution
- Not too many opportunities to use the attack
For fans of the Falcon Punch is the Exploding Side Kick. When Mii Brawler has this move equipped they possess a deadly kill move with high damage and knockback to back it up. The damage and knockback can be increased by reversing the attack at the start of the animation, much like the Falcon or Warlock Punch. Though a powerful kill move, it is quite slow in execution, making it easy to punish and hard to hit opponents with; only opponents stuck in a dizzy state from a broken shield or suffering from some other status ailment that keeps them in place will be reliably hit with this move. However, an opponent that tries to attack Mii Brawler just before the kick is launched will find their efforts ineffective as the Super Armor frames take effect.
