Final Cutter is Kirby's up special move in every Super Smash Bros. game. In the Kirby franchise, it is one of the attacks granted by the Cutter ability. Like in its series of origin, Kirby pulls out a blade and slashes up into the air before flying back toward the ground. When Kirby lands the attack sends out a shockwave in front of him that also damages opponents. The move also has a meteor smash on the descent. The player can also influence Kirby's horizontal movement a little during the attack.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the Final Cutter's first custom variant is Wave Cutter, which creates a rock wave upon landing and has more power and range than normal, though the blade itself does not deal any damage. The second variant, Upper Cutter, executes more quickly, dealing damage to those who are caught in the attack's path. However, upon finishing the jump, Kirby does not plummet straight down, but instead, enters a helpless state without affecting his horizontal mobility; this also removes the shockwave and meteor smash properties that Final Cutter has.
