Dolphin Slash is Marth's up special move in the Super Smash Bros. series since Super Smash Bros. Melee, and is also used by Lucina in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When either character performs the move, they quickly leap into the air to slash their sword directly up, damaging any nearby opponents. The attack deals the most damage at the beginning.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Dolphin Slash's first custom variant is Crescent Slash, which gives more horizontal distance at the cost of jump height, and deals the most damage at the midpoint of the attack. The second variant, Dolphin Jump, increases the move's jump height, but does not damage opponents.
