The Master Hand Laser glitch is a glitch in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It can occur only when the Master Hand is being controlled, either through hacking or via the Name Entry glitch.

Execution of the Glitch

The glitch must be executed when a player is using the Master Hand. Item switch must allow either Super Mushrooms or Poison Mushrooms to appear.

First, a Super or Poison Mushroom must touch Master Hand. He will grow or shrink, respectively. Next, he must use B^ (Laser) while he returns to normal size. The laser beams will remain on his fingertips. Even once the attack is over, they can still do damage. This glitch will not impede Master Hand's ability to use other attacks.

An alternate way to execute it is in Training mode. He must use B^ (Laser). Go to the training mode, and reset. The laser beams will be infinite. He will be facing the wrong way and only some of his moves make him attack the opponent. Others go in the opposite direction.

This glitch also works with Crazy Hand, but his laser attack won't work unless Master Hand is in the battle as well.


  • Strangely, the player can use B^ while the glitch is executed. If the player executes the move a second time, it still uses the lasers after the attack is done.
  • There is a 65% chance of the game freezing if the glitch is performed.
  • If the glitch is repeated then the lasers will cause more damage, probably because there are now two sets of lasers. More lasers can still be "layered"; around 7 layers, they will cause OHKOs.
  • In order to get rid of the laser sound, grab an opponent. The sound should stop.
