The Smash Ball (Formerly called a Smash Emblem or Smash Orb by fans) is an item shown to debut in SSBB. It appears to allow the user to activate an especially powerful Final Smash attack. To use the Smash Ball, the characters must attack the item until he/she begins to glow. The attack can be unleashed at any time, and can only be used once, after you get the Smash Ball. However, the Smash Ball can be knocked out if you're pummeled enough.
