The move is one of the ones that Luigi uses in the Super Smash Bros. series. It is the down move special for Luigi the way to use it is press the B button and it will preform the attack. When using it, Luigi will spin around wildly, attempting to get opponents trapped in his cyclone attack. Then when he has finished the attack. Luigi will throw his arms out, which will send the opponent flying. The move has some similarities to the Mario Tornado, and Link's Spin Attack from The Legend of Zelda games.
With Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, each special has two alternate forms
- Mach Cyclone - This move sacrifices damage for speed and better verticality. It also has some decent combo potential.
- Clothesline Cyclone - This move sacrifices speed and more startup for better damage and better KO potential.
It is likely based on the spin attack from Super Mario World.
