Super Speed is one of Palutena's Side Special Moves. Palutena dashes forward, ramming any opponent she hits.


Palutena announces "Super Speed!" and goes the distance of Battlefield at a very fast speed, damaging opponents in her path similarly to Quick Draw. However, the damage inflicted increases the further Palutena goes, with a minimum of 3% with high knockback. If used in the air, it propels Palutena diagonally downward.

Palutena can cancel Super Speed into any of her attacks while retaining momentum, making the move a great combo starter. It is also a useful mobility option due to the distance gained and the speed Palutena goes. However, after using Super Speed, Palutena must wait three seconds before reusing it.

Along with the rest of Palutena's special moves, Super Speed originated in Kid Icarus: Uprising as one of the many Powers. It causes the user rush forward at an extremely high speed for a few seconds. Running into opponents while under the effects of Super Speed will cause them to take damage. Like in SSB4, players can attack while using Super Speed, however, because Super Speed causes Palutena to constantly run forward, she can only use forward dash attacks.


  • Super Speed can travel faster than Sonic's normal dash.
