This article is about an item that grants metal form. For information on the form itself, see Metal.

The Metal Box is a green block with an exclamation mark on it. It is an item that originates from Super Mario 64. In the Super Smash Bros. series, the Metal Box appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. Melee and later installments. When used, the Metal Box temporarily coats its user in metal, although unlike its originating game, the Metal Box does not release a metal cap. Giga Bowser, Wario-Man, Mega Lucario, and Giga Mac are unaffected by Metal Boxes.

Trophy information[edit]

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

First spotted in Super Mario 64, the Metal Box holds the power to turn your character briefly into heavy metal. Your mass is exponentially greater while metallic, making it difficult for others to throw you. Be careful though: not only will you move a bit slower, but you'll also fall much more quickly than you ordinarily would.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

In metal form, you're a lot heavier than normal, so middling and even strong attacks don't move you too much, and standard attacks won't even make you flinch. The time you spend in metal form decreases with the damage you take. In Super Mario 64, the weight of the metal form allowed you to walk underwater.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]

- Flag of USA.png This green box will make you the ultimate defensive character, turning you into solid metal for a short time. You won't flinch from enemy attacks, even in midair, and it is much harder to launch you. On the other hand, you fall like a brick. Getting hit will reduce the duration of this item.
Flag of Europe.png Whack this box to turn into a metal you! You won't flinch when attacked - even in mid-air - and you'll be harder to launch. Now, the downsides: you'll move slower, fall faster, and recovering when you fall off a stage will be a nightmare. Also, it's only temporary, or lasts until you've taken a certain amount of damage.
