Palutena's Counter (after reacting to an attack) in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Counter is Palutena's default down special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and part of her down special move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is based on the power seen in Kid Icarus: Uprising. Like other counter moves, Palutena braces herself for an attack, and when hit, strikes back with her staff, dealing 1.3 times the amount of damage of the attack (dealing a set 10% at minimum). Palutena's Counter deals less knockback than most other counter moves, however, but it can potentially make 1-hit KOs if Palutena blocks any attacks that deal 40% damage or more.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, similar to King K. Rool's Gut Check and Joker's Tetrakarn and Makarakarn, Palutena executes Counter when her down special move is used on a close-up attack.
