This is a list of meteor smashes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Characters who have an attack with a meteor smash hitbox are listed here, along with each attack. As the exact numerical distinction between "meteor smash" and "spike" is currently unknown, this page assumes that Brawl's range of 230-310 is at least similar. This list does not include unconventional meteor smashes.

Meteor cancelling has not come back since Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U, making meteor smashes function the same as spikes.
