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), wielded by main character Lip. It also appears as a usable item in both SSBM and SSBB.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Lip's Stick is classified as a bashing item with a very helpful side effect; when a character is struck by the item, a flower sprouts on their head that does continual damage. 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 dealing 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 that does not cause a flower to grow is Mewtwo's dash attack.
On February 3, 2008, the SLAPAHO team discovered that Lip's Stick can be turned into a SLAPASTICK. See the respective page for more details.
The effect of having a flower on the player's head continuously is added as an option in Special Brawl.
In the games, multiple attacks have the ability to attach flowers to the enemy's head; among the attacks include Crazy Hand's throw, and Jigglypuff'sRest if it is not fatal. Luigi'sNegative Zone can also produce a flower on an enemy's head, along with other effts.
In SSBB, the Lip's Stick cannot give a flower effect to Fighting Alloy Team, although it still deals a considerable amount of knockback on them.
