Whip Lash is a variant of the Plasma Whip side move used by Zero Suit Samus in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Unlockable at random, the Whip Lash turns the whip pink and deals 6% damage. However, only the tip of the whip is capable of dealing damage or otherwise hitting opponents. While the regular Plasma Whip would deliver knockback to Zero Suit Samus's opponents, the Whip Lash will strike them and draw them in if they are hit with the tip. If Zero Suit Samus is too close to an opponent and uses the attack, the whip will pass through the opponent.
- "Knock foes toward you with the very end of the whip. The rest of the whip does nothing."

The end of the whip is the only part that can hit opponents. On hit, it knocks opponents towards Zero Suit Samus. The hitbox on the tip is larger than usual."
