Floow (フロウス Furousu) is an enemy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode, and first appears in the Ruined Zoo level.


Floows look like a large black cloud with gray rectangles forming a humanoid shape and two small red eyes. As they take damage, they appear to elongate in the left-right direction. Floows can regenerate health, which causes their body to pull back together. Their trophy describes them as "a ghost patched with strips of darkness."


A Floow's attack (some sort of scream) can causes high damage - about 7 hits of 6-8%, highly resistant to DI - and knockback. It is also possible for two Floows attacking at alternate times to trap a player. A particular annoyance of the Floow is its ability to steadily regain health, although it cannot move or attack while healing. While the long health bar may seem intimidating, damage done by any decent melee attack is usually sufficient to cut down the health by half.

The Floows can be turned into a trophy with the use of a trophy stand, but precise aiming and timing may be required as the Floows float around. Floows are resistant to energy projectile attacks, so it is advisable to attack them with direct attacks. If Floows come in contact with water, they are instantly defeated.

Trophy Description

An enemy that might be described as a ghost patched with strips of darkness. A Floow will float in the air and attack nastily from behind. Harboring pent-up resentment, a Floow's cries reveal one part sadness, one part madness. This especially hits home when gazing into its ghastly red eyes. After taking a certain amount of damage, a Floow will disappear.
