A screenshot of Charizard, Meta Knight, and Pit gliding in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Gliding is a technique that only appears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and is only used by Charizard, Meta Knight, and Pit, who all have wings. While technically similar to Peach's hovering ability, gliding lasts longer and has more control. The player can glide by holding the jump button after a midair jump (Meta Knight can also glide after using his Shuttle Loop), and is directed by tilting the control stick. Tilting the control stick up or back will make the character glide upwards for a short while, whereas tilting the control stick down or forward will make the character glide downwards. The three characters that can glide also have a glide attack. The character cannot turn around while gliding, and will stop if the player stalls in mid-air or gets attacked. In addition, gliding after using the character's final midair jump leaves that character helpless when the glide ends.
