Lip's Stick (リップステッキ Rippu Sutekki?) is an item from the puzzle game Panel de Pon (released only in Japan), and is wielded by the main character, Lip. It appears as a usable item in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Lip's Stick is classified as a battering item with a very helpful side effect; when a character is smashed by the item, a flower which does continual damage sprouts on their head. Tilt and smash attacks cause the item to release "dust" that has the same effect of flower growth, but doesn't do as much damage. Repeated use of the item, as well as tilts and smashes with the item, cause the flower to grow bigger, making it longer lasting and thus deal more damage. The item itself, however, has somewhat average knockback, and the item has a limited amount of dust with which to grow flowers; once the dust runs out, the item becomes practically useless. The flower on top of a player's head can also be shaken off by repeated smashing of the Control Stick. The only attack with Lip's Stick that does not cause a flower to grow is Mewtwo's dash attack.
This magical stick was used by the character Lip in the Japanese game Panel De Pon, which was released later as Tetris Attack in the United States. Lip's Stick causes a flower to sprout from an enemy's head, inflicting damage as it grows. Quickly tap the Control Stick back and forth to get a flower off of your head.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl
The effect of having a flower on the player's head continuously is added as an option in Special Brawl.
Multiple attacks have the ability to attach flowers to the opponent's head; among these are Crazy Hand's throw, and Jigglypuff's Rest if it is not fatal. Luigi's Negative Zone can also produce a flower on an enemy's head, along with other effects.
An item that causes a damage-dealing flower to bloom on people's heads. If you find yourself with a flower on your noggin, start rattling the Control Stick back and forth to shake it off. Some characters can pull off having flower-covered heads in style, while others clearly cannot.
In Super Smash Bros. (Wii U and 3DS)
With this wand in hand, a simple flick of the wrist will sprout a flower from a character's head. If you keep on flicking, the flower grows larger. The bigger the flower, the more nutrients it craves, dealing more and more damage to the host. Shake it off by running around real fast!
