Upon using the move, Jigglypuff flinches before falling asleep and waking up several seconds later, leaving it open to attack. If used close to an opponent, however, they are launched into the air. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, this attack has a flame effect, while in Super Smash Bros. Brawl onward, this was changed to giving the opponent a flower on their head to increase their damage; the angle the attack launches at was also changed from a more diagonal one in the previous two games to a near-vertical one.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the first custom variant for Rest is Leaping Rest, which sends Jigglypuff into the air before it falls asleep. The second is Wakie Wakie (spelled Wakey-Wakey in the British English version), which causes Jigglypuff to rest for a shorter time, exploding when it wakes up; as it sleeps it also has a vortex surrounding it that pushes away opponents. The explosion also causes recoil damage to Jigglypuff when it wakes up.
