The Ore Club is club-type weapon that debuted in Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS.
The Ore Club appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Like the Star Rod, it functions as both a battering item and a shooting item; its slow strikes deal high damage, and its smash attack produces a tornado that travels across the stage to damage opponents and juggle items. The tornado can only be produced six times from a club. The size of the tornado and the distance it travels increases the more the attack is charged; an uncharged tornado is larger than the largest base size of any character, and is able to travel the length of Final Destination. Fighters gain super armor while charging a smash attack. Also like the Star Rod, throwing the club at an opponent will result in a semi-spike. While the club's tornadoes are potentially the largest projectiles in the game, they can still be reflected and eaten.
In Smash Tour
The Ore Club's trophy is a red item that can be collected during Smash Tour. It gives the user the ability to start a battle with an Ore Club in hand.
A weapon fashioned from minerals found on the mountain of the gods, this club is infused with a soil, giving it an ominous eye in its center. Maybe it's just my imagination, but I think the eye winks at you each time you land a perfect, wall-penetrating shot.
- 3DS - Kid Icarus: Uprising (03/2012)
The Ore Club was first seen in Kid Icarus: Uprising, as the most basic of all the club-type weapons in the game. Typically, clubs deal very high melee damage with a two-hit combo while saddling the user with a low running speed. It can be charged up for a charge shot, albeit rather slowly, which deals a large amount of damage. Its homing is average. Like other clubs, the Ore Club does not have any rapid fire projectile that most other weapons have.
CPU-controlled fighters will notably charge the Ore Club's Smash attacks for the full duration once they grab onto one. This is probably a programming gimmick to force computer-controlled players to take advantage of the weapon's super armor.
