A Fan, or Paper Fan,[1] is a weak item that appears in the first three Super Smash Bros. games, Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Much like the more powerful Beam Sword, the Fan would replace many of its user's regular attacks with quick fan swipes if picked up. Although it does very little damage, its attacks are quick, and a smash attack almost destroy a fighter's shield entirely. If a fighter is hit by a thrown fan, they are launched straight up into the air.

Trophy information[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

The Fan can be swung so rapidly that it leaves opponents unable to counterattack. It is, however, an exceedingly weak weapon. Despite this shortcoming, the Fan is quite effective as a shield breaker, and it works well at disrupting an enemy's equilibrium. Throw the fan to send your foe bouncing straight up into the sky.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Fan SSBB Trophy Fan.png N64 SSBB graphic.png Super Smash Bros. An item made by taking thick paper, folding it accordion-style, taping one end, and fanning out the other. It's mainly used as a comedic prop by comedians from Osaka and the Kansai region of Japan. Why it's in Smash Bros. is a mystery. Grab this unique item and whack foes to turn them in the opposite direction. Throw a fan at a foe, and that character will fly straight up.
