PK Starstorm is the Final Smash of both Lucas and Ness. The character summons a rain of actual stars from the sky (or astronomically seen, meteorites) while yelling "PK... Starstorm!!", which strike the stage. Lucas' PK Starstorm is more effective on smaller stages, while Ness' PK Starstorm is more effective in larger stages.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Character Differences

Ness

Ness' meteors come down individually and spread out in a fan-like shape, dealing 20% damage. Ness' PK Starstorm knocks the opponent vertically. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, the meteorites come down in a concentrated stream at the center of the stage, and can be angled left or right, similar to Lucario's Aura Storm.

Trophy Descriptions

Ness

RSBE01-276

The PK Starstorm (Ness) Trophy

Ness as he calls down a host of damage-dealing stars in his Final Smash. Everyone on the screen must dodge like crazy to avoid getting hurt, but that's no easy task. This attack appeared in the MOTHER series, but it was Poo, not Ness, who wielded it. Perhaps Poo taught Ness the secret of the attack for use in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Lucas

RSBE01-271

The PK Starstorm (Lucas) Trophy

Lucas' Final Smash. He pulls a large group of stars from the sky and sends them smashing down among his enemies, causing damage to one and all. In MOTHER 3, this move was used by Lucas' traveling companion, Princess Kumatora. As Ness learned this move from Poo, Princess Kumatora taught Lucas when he learned he would appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Trophy description in Wii U/3DS

Ness

In EarthBound, this PSI ability belonged to Poo, the Crown Prince of Dalaam and one of Ness's friends. Ness must have learned it especially for Smash Bros.! The attack makes a shower of meteors fall onto the stage, damaging any foes it hits. While the attack's in progress, Ness is invincible and can adjust the meteors' trajectory.

Lucas

You can adjust the direction of the shooting stars in this attack! Rain stars down on multiple fighters at once, or be mean and pick on a single fighter. The choice is yours! If a star connects, it will deal ongoing fire damage, making it hard for opponents to return to the stage.

Origin

PK Starstorm Mother 3

Kumatora using PK Starstorm in MOTHER 3.

This move has its origins in the game Earthbound (MOTHER 2 in Japan), being a very powerful attack that affects all enemies on the screen. In this game, it is used by a character named Poo (one of Ness' partners). It also appears in MOTHER 3, being used by Kumatora (one of Lucas' partners in said game). However, like most of both Lucas' and Ness' attacks in the Super Smash Bros. series, they do not learn this attack on their respective games. Interestingly, in their Final Smash Trophies, it is hinted that Poo and Kumatora taught this attack to Ness and Lucas respectively to use in Brawl.

Trivia

  • The sound effects of PK Starstorm in Wii U/3DS are the same as the ones in Earthbound.
