Fire Wolf (Wolf Shoot - ウルフシュート - in the Japanese version) is Wolf's Up Special Move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Despite its name, "Fire Wolf", the move has no fire effect, but it is possible that the name refers to the idea of "firing" Wolf in some direction, which relates to its Japanese name, "Wolf Shoot". To execute, a player must press up and B, then tilt the control stick in a direction of their choice. This will cause "wind" to gather about Wolf, and then fire him in a straight line. Fire Wolf is similar to Fox and Falco's Fire Fox and Fire Bird, but has a few differences.
Its appearance is unique from Fox and Falco's, in that it produces no fire and will not burn opponents who make contact with it. Its animation also differs, as Wolf thrusts his legs forward and extends a foot, as opposed to traveling headfirst. It has much less charging time than its counterparts, but will not affect opponents during this time. Once Wolf begins moving, it will drag opponents who are caught within its range, hitting them multiple times and dealing up to 11% damage. Wolf kicks as the move finishes, delivering substantial knockback and dealing an extra 3%. Despite its multi hit property, some characters who are caught in Fire Wolf may intercept it if they possess a fast enough attack, such as Marth's Dolphin Slash. Fire Wolf may be used to travel in sixteen distinct directions, and carries Wolf approximately half the distance of Final Destination (SSBB), further than Fire Bird and almost as far as Fire Fox. However, its ledge sweet spot is very small, which can cause difficulty when the move is used to recover.
