The Fan is an item that has appeared in every Super Smash Bros. game. It is a weapon that is able to be held in the hand. The fan has the ability to suck in opponents and has a rapid fire rate, making it easy to trap opponents with rapid fan attacks. Due to this, in Brawl it is possible to trap and hit a character until they have 999% damage.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl the fan has paper-like properties and floats to the ground if thrown.

The Fan can be swung so rapidly that it leaves opponents unable to counterattack. It is, however, an exceedingly weak weapon. Despite this shortcoming, the Fan is quite effective as a shield breaker, and it works well at disrupting an enemy's equilibrium. Throw the fan to send your foe bouncing straight up into the sky.


An item made by taking thick paper, folding it accordion-style, taping one end, and fanning out the other. It's mainly used as a comedic prop by comedians from Osaka and the Kansai region of Japan. Why it's in Smash Bros. is a mystery. Grab this unique item and whack foes to turn them in the opposite direction. Throw a fan at a foe, and that character will fly straight up.
