The Drill is an item appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When a fighter uses a drill, the drill bit is fired as a projectile. The drill flies across the screen, damaging and carrying any fighters that get caught in its path along with it to potentially off-screen and KO them. The projectile can only be used one time; after that, the weapon's base can be thrown at other fighters.

Although the Drill appears and functions similarly to the Drill Arm from Kid Icarus: Uprising, the in-game trophy is represented with a Super Smash Bros. series icon, indicating that it is an item original to the Super Smash Bros. series.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U trophy information[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the trophy is exclusive to Trophy Rush.

You only get one shot, but if that shot hits enemies, it will drill into them, doing continuous damage and carrying them back. Don't forget to throw the base at them afterward, adding insult to injury!

Shoot the drill into an opponent and its point will fly straight and true, inflicting continuous damage and eventually knocking them over. Then, to add insult to injury, throw the drill base at them.
