Reflect Barrier is Palutena's default side special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and part of her down special move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Palutena raises her shield, which causes a magic barrier to appear in front of her and move forward a short distance, pushing away any opponents on the opposite side and reflecting any projectiles that hit it. Palutena's raising her shield also damages nearby opponents. The barrier does not follow Palutena's vertical position, remaining at the same position where she was when it was used. Like all reflectors in this game, dealing enough damage to the barrier shatters it, though the move can be immediately reused.
In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Palutena executes Reflect Barrier when her down special move is used on a projectile, similar to King K. Rool's Gut Check and Joker's Tetrakarn and Makarakarn.
