The Home-Run Bat (alternatively spelled Homerun Bat) is an extremely powerful item in the Super Smash Bros. series. Fighters can grab the bat and use it to hit other fighters or throw it at them. The smash attack of the Home-Run Bat is very powerful and deals a large amount of knockback (on normally-sized stages, enough for a one-hit KO at single-digit damage percentages), but takes a long time to execute. Fighters are launched the farthest if they are hit by the tip of the Home-Run Bat. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Home-Run Bat reflects projectiles. The Home-Run Bat is also featured in every iteration of the Home-Run Contest since the mode debuted in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

While the Home-Run Bat does send opponents flying diagonally for most characters, the item operates differently for Captain Falcon and Sheik, but only in Super Smash Bros. Melee; the two will send foes flying upwards with their Home-Run Bats, instead of diagonally. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the Home-Run Bat has different animations for each of the different characters.

For the first three Super Smash Bros. titles, the Home-Run Bat has the appearance of a regular wooden baseball bat. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the bat is given a redesign: the main part of the bat is black and yellow, while the handle is red and golden. The Super Smash Bros. emblem also appears on it in gold on the handle end of the bat.

The Home-Run Bat trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl can be unlocked by hitting the Sandbag in the Home-Run Contest at least 500 meters. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, the trophy is obtained for playing Home-Run Contest for the first time. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the trophy can only be obtained in Trophy Rush.

Trophy information

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Name Image Game Description
Home-Run Bat SSBM Trophy Home-Run Bat.png Super Smash Bros.
Smash an enemy with this slugger, and you'll send them flying out of sight; hence the name Home-Run Bat. The sound of the bat being swung immediately strikes fear into the hearts of opponents and can turn the tide of a battle. It's slightly risky to use, though; it has a very limited range, and it takes a little time to wind up for your swing.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Wii SSBB graphic.png Super Smash Bros. Brawl
A battering item. Smash a foe with this and be rewarded with the distinctive "KREEEEENG!" sound of a home run as your foe goes flying. The sound echoes with what's surely the timbre of supreme bliss. For the character being hit, though, it must be one of the scariest sounds ever. But it's not easy to use--it swings slowly and has a limited range. High risk, high reward.

2: Swordfighter Flag of USA.png Combine this black bat with a forward smash to try for a home run, using an opponent as the ball! Unfortunately, the reach on the bat is not all that impressive, so it takes some real skill to line up a hit. Keep your chin up, though—the loud "KREEENG" of a hit makes it all worthwhile.
Flag of Europe.png Batter up! (That's what they say right?) Get a home run by side-smashing an enemy right off the stage! Enemies are more difficult to send flying than baseballs, though - or so we're told - and this bat doesn't exactly have a long reach, so if you want to hear the satisfying sound of your foe flying off-screen, you'll have to work for it!
