Confusion is a Psychic-type move from the Pokémon franchise. It is Mewtwo's side special move in each of his Super Smash Bros. appearances. When used, Mewtwo swipes its hand, causing a dark aura to appear around it, tossing opponents to the ground and damaging them if they are close enough. Confusion can also deflect projectiles, though in Super Smash Bros. Melee, deflected projectiles cannot damage the original user, but in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, all projectiles deal damage when reflected. When used in the air, Mewtwo does a slight hop. The move can also bypass opponents' shields.
