The neutral aerial (abbreviated as "nair," "Nair," or "ANA") is an aerial attack that is performed in midair by pressing the A Button, and no direction on the control stick. Its official term varies between titles, where it is known as a "Standard Midair Attack" in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and a "Standard Air Attack" in Brawl. Most characters' neutral aerials are fast, high-range moves useful for bettering other air attacks. Many neutral aerials are also sex kicks. With T-Sticking, one is able to do neutral aerials without losing any horizontal momentum. Most Nairs have no landing lag if the player lands whilst the Nair is still being performed.

Yoshi's neutral aerial.

List of Neutral aerials in Super Smash Bros.

  • Pikachu (SSB): Does a sex kick. A very good combo move with high priority
  • Yoshi (SSB): Does a sex kick. A well known DJC move, very good at breaking shields
  • Samus (SSB): Does a sex kick. A good gimping move that allows Samus one of her few edgeguard tools
  • DK (SSB): Spins around, attacking with his arms. DK's best aerial for comboing outside of up air. Usually comboed into F-air and rising up airs
  • Link (SSB): Does a sex kick. Link's quickest aerial, moderate range, usually comboed into a down air or projectiles, OOS move.
  • Luigi (SSB): Does a sex kick. Usually used for edgeguarding. The later hits of the sex kick can combo into an up b due to its low knockback
  • Mario (SSB): Same as Luigi. Great OOS move. Can combo into an up smash.
  • Kirby (SSB): Flattens himself and attacks with both feet extended. A very high power combo move, good at edgeguarding and OOS play. The lighter damages combo into an F-smash
  • Jigglypuff (SSB): Flattens herself and attacks with both feet extended. One of Jigglypuff's main approach tactics is to teleport into an n-air. This is a very useful tactic as Jigglypuff's N-air has surprising priority. Jigglypuff's main spacing aerial
  • Fox (SSB): Does a sex kick. A very useful combo move, combos into practically every single aerial and ground move in Fox's arsenal.
  • Captain Falcon (SSB): Does a sex kick. Usually used as an out of shield move. It won't matter if the player Z-cancels, there is too much ending lag to be used too often.
  • Ness (SSB): Does a split kick with the properties of a sex kick. It is a good spacing move as it turns Ness' entire body into a hitbox.

List of Neutral aerials in Melee

  • Captain Falcon's neutral aerial is very useful in comboing because its two kicks and its knockback give Falcon the spacing and timing needed to continue with another aerial attack.
  • Ganondorf's neutral aerial is basically a slower but much stronger version of Captain Falcon's neutral aerial. Can hardly connect both hits after 25%.
  • Samus' sex kick lasts a long time, combos efficiently, can kill and is generally considered one of the best aerial attacks in the game.
  • Mewtwo's neutral aerial is an electrical spark field with good knockback and a quick start-up, aiding in its safe recovery.
  • Link's sex kick has high range, combos effectively, and can be interrupted before its hitbox finishes, making it a completely lagless attack.
  • Young Link's sex kick is a shorter-ranged version of Link's sex kick.
  • Mario's neutral aerial is a simple sex kick.
  • Dr. Mario's neutral aerial is sex kick that grows from weaker to stronger, an unusual trait in sex kicks. Can be used to force an opponent offstage or as an edgeguard.

  • Marth's neutral aerial makes Marth spin twice hitting any enemy and throwing him horizontally with some upward knockback.
  • Roy's neutral aerial is essentially a clone of Marth's, and is one of Roy's best combo moves.
  • Peach's neutral air is a very fast move, coming out on frame 2, which makes it a very fast move for escaping combos, retaliations out of shields, and quick kills.

  • Falco's neutral aerial is a clone of Fox's neutral aerial.
  • Bowser's neutral aerial is a weak aerial shellspin.

  • Zelda's neutral aerial is a multihit shower of magic, much like Mewtwo's but not as useful.
  • Ness's neutral aerial is an aerial spin with arms extended that can serve as a combo finisher. Similar in appearance to Peach's neutral aerial.
  • The Ice Climbers' neutral aerial is a spin with hammers extended that usually goes unused.
  • Donkey Kong's neutral aerial is a spin with arms extended that can be used as an OOS option or a combo finisher.
  • Yoshi's neutral aerial is a sex kick that works well with DJC.
