Plasma Wire is Zero Suit Samus' Up Special Move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. She fires her whip upwards, pulling anyone above her downwards. In the air, it can be used as a Tether Recovery. It is one of the few recovery moves that don't induce helplessness, like Yoshi's Egg Throw.


If used on someone who is on the ground next to Zero Suit Samus, it will knock them upwards, hitting multiple times, until they hit the end, at which point it will pull them back down. If used on an airborne opponent while off the stage, it will pull them down and they will keep going, effectively spiking them. This move can be chained multiple times to accumulate damage, and teching out of it can be difficult. However, the timing is harder to get as the damage increases.

The Plasma Wire can tether recover to any ledge above Zero Suit Samus, automatically grappling it. If the ledge is at or below the horizontal, however, it will not grapple to it. If the midair jump has not been used, using this move will make Zero Suit Samus move upwards about half of the jump. It also can be used multiple times.
