## Smash 4's strongest possible attack

on 3/24/2017, 5:20 pm

Smash 4 has a lot of things that are dangerous. A Little Mac amiibo with 200 attack points, critical hits and an attack trade-off is generally where most people would draw the line. A good hit can deal over 200%, which would easily wipe out anything that gets hit.

Of course, that won't really do when you're looking for the limit. Using data from the Smash Wiki, here's what I managed to find. Customs are "allowed", so long as it's still within the range of what's possible within the game itself.

The one doing the attacking will be:

The attack will be:

Now for the multipliers...

On the attacking Shulk's side:

- It would be a level 50 amiibo (1.5x damage dealt)

- It's using the Monado Arts for Buster. (1.4x damage dealt)

- It would have +200 attack points (2x damage dealt)

- Critical Hit capability is the first bonus effect, and it triggers (3x damage dealt)

- Desperate Attacker bonus effect is active (1.7x damage dealt) (Attacker is implied to be at 100% or higher)

- Desperate Specialist bonus effect is active (1.5x damage dealt) (Attacker is implied to be at 100% or higher)

Now for the one getting attacked:

- Shulk using Jump from his Monado Arts (1.22x damage taken)

- 3 Air pinata bonus effects active (1.4x damage taken) (Implies the target is in the air)

-200 defense points (2x damage taken)

Total multipliers for the damage is...

1.4 x 2 x 1.5 x 3 x 1.7 x 1.5 x 1.22 x 1.4 x 2 =

Calculating that the damage of the attack itself was 50%, multiply that by the previous multiplier we just found...

Smash 4 would likely round that up to

**Shulk.**The attack will be:

**Vision (50% damage cap)**Now for the multipliers...

**109.75608 times normal damage dealt.**Calculating that the damage of the attack itself was 50%, multiply that by the previous multiplier we just found...

**5487.804%**Smash 4 would likely round that up to

**5488%**if it could go to such numbers. Ultimately, it would still go to 999% damage, but it's fun to know just how powerful an attack could get.*Do you know anything I missed that could make this attack more powerful?*___________________

Counters max out at 50% damage, which is then affected by multipliers. The 1.3x damage multiplier which the counter uses only applies up to that 50% strike we're using.
