Hyper claw slash

The hyper claw slash[1] is a powerful attack utilized by Proteus Ridley at the end of Metroid: Samus Returns. He uses it during the final phase of the battle, while attacking Samus with less powerful slashes in the second phase. It consists of one powerful slash that Ridley winds up, and that leaves an afterimage. It is one of the most powerful attacks used by Proteus Ridley; on Fusion Mode, it is capable of taking off three of Samus's Energy Tanks.
