This move can be aimed by quickly pushing the joystick in a direction, making Roy move anywhere from directly upward to a 45 degree diagonal on either side, at the expense of some vertical distance. It deals knockback based on the target's weight. Similar to Marth's Reverse Dolphin Slash a reverse blazer can also be performed being able to OHKO lightweight characters such as Jigglypuff, Pichu and Mr. Game & Watch. The move is also known as a surprisingly easy and effective way of killing enemies in the Cruel Melee. It lacks the ability to do spectacular things in the mode, but is capable of killing several quickly, even in the hands of a novice.
