Bowser using Fire Breath in Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Fire Breath is a special attack found in the Super Smash Bros. series. It originated in Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube. It is Bowser's Neutral Special, and is near identical to Charizard's Flamethrower.

The move causes the great behemoth to exhale large bursts of fire. Eventually, the amount of fire being released from his mouth decreases, dwindling until it turns into a puff harmless smoke. The move was inspired by the fact that in the Super Mario series, Bowser is capable of spewing fire from his mouth.


In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Bowser has these options for Fire Breath,

  • Fire Shot - Bowser fires a large fireball projectile that goes through enemies. It is more powerful than the other versions but, there is delay between each shot if held.
  • Fire Roar - A more powerful version that runs out quicker
