Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

A Glire is one of three "gl" wheel-like creatures that travel around the edges of platforms. They first appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as enemies in The Subspace Emissary. Glires travel around the edges of platforms, and if a fighter approaches a Glire, it opens up and sends out an aura of fire in all directions.

Glires return in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS as an enemy in Smash Run mode. They retain their behavior from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Glires move slower than Glunder and Glice, but have higher defense. They are weak to ice-based attacks.

Trophy information[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

Name Image Game Description
Glire SSBB Trophy Glire.png Wii SSBB graphic.png Super Smash Bros. Brawl An enemy shaped like a tire. It's protected by three black shells, but they're not so hard as to be impenetrable. The outermost shell is covered in mucus that lets it stick to surfaces as it rolls along walls and ceilings. The eye in its center is creepy. When it spots the player, it stops, sheds its outer layers, and spouts fire from its inner recesses.

Name Image Category Description
Glire SSB3DS Trophy Glire.png Enemy Flag of USA.png This rotating enemy will follow the terrain. The red one is called Glire. Should a fighter come too close, a blast of fire will erupt from Glire, damaging nearby foes. Glire has high stamina compared to Glice and Glunder, but it's very slow. It's especially vulnerable to ice attacks!
Flag of Europe.png If you get too close to a Glire, it'll stop, open its shell and unleash a fire attack. They deal more damage than Glunders and Glices, but they're also slower. You won't get a lot of stat boosts for defeating one, so just make life easy for yourself and exploit their weakness to ice attacks when you're taking them on.
