Slip Bomb

The Slip Bomb is a variant of the Bomb down move used by Samus in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. It is unlockable at random. The Slip Bomb deals less damage than the regular Bomb move, but can trip enemies that have been grounded and meteor smash airborne opponents. This means it is a suitable move to set up a grab or guard an edge. A grounded explosion deals 2.5% damage, and 3.5% in the air.
