A Timer is an item from the Super Smash Bros. series which appears in every installment starting with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. A fighter can pick up this item to slow down the flow of time for all other fighters temporarily. Sometimes the Timer has the opposite effect in which it only slows down the fighter who used it. Sometimes it slows down every fighter.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the background turns purple, while players that are slowed down are surrounded by a spiraling effect. The trophy information states that the timer always benefits the user, even though it is possible for it to backfire.

You should enjoy a huge advantage in both attacking enemies and snagging items that appear. If an enemy manages to get to a powerful item first, you'll be able to shield and dodge and keep any damage you take to a minimum.

- Flag of USA.png Grabbing this will make time flow at a different pace around you. Everyone else will slow down, letting you grab all the items and get in some blows. Sometimes, though, this item backfires and slows you down too. Worst case, it may actually slow ONLY you. That's not so great...
Flag of Europe.png Pick this up to make time move slowly for everyone but you! With the timer in hand, grabbing items and attacking gets much easier, so if someone else gets it, start defending yourself. Timers can be a little hit or miss, though. It might slow time down for everyone, or maybe just for you!
