Custom Variations

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, with the introduction of the Custom Moves, Dark Pit has 2 variatons of Electroshock Arm.

Electrocut Arm

Electrocut Arm is one of Dark Pits Side Special Moves that can be used via customizations. Dark Pit dashes forward while wielding the Electroshock Arm, anyone that comes in contact will get launched; this Custom Move can be charged, but will not go as far as the default. He will not flinch while charging.


  • Acts like a counter
  • Can discourage frontal approaches
  • Edge-guarding method and discouragement


  • Less horizontal recovery

The Electrocut Arm is a great move for taking control of enemy behavior. It acts like a counter, but will actually activate if it detects an enemy presence. In this way, it can discourage enemy frontal approaches because if they even dash towards Dark Pit and manage to get detected they will be counter-attacked. The same works with edge-guarding; if Dark Pit is edge-guarding, he can use the move to detect enemies trying to get to the edge and attack them. If Dark Pit is trying to recover and an enemy is on the edge, he can use the move to deter any edge-guarding attempts made by the enemy. Dark Pit does sacrifice a horizontal recovery option in trade for this though, so try to keep this in mind.

Quickshock Arm

Quickshock Armis one of Dark Pits Side Special Moves that can be used via customizations. Dark Pit dashes incredibly fast, but won't stop after hitting an opponent.


  • Faster execution
  • More distance


  • Unwieldy and hard to control

This move grants Dark Pit more horizontal recovery distance and it actually moves faster as well. However, when it hits an opponent it can be unwieldy and awkward for a player to try an control. An experienced Dark Pit player should be able to get it under control.
