Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, during the opening cinematic, there is a brief scene where several Pokémon are shown, and an Onix can be seen to the right. In the Poké Floats stage, Onix is the second Pokémon float to appear during a cycle. Like other floats, fighters use the Onix float as a platform. The Onix float is lifelike, especially because it rotates its boulder segments.
