The Mario Finale is Mario's Final Smash attack. It consists of Mario launching a powerful blast of fire, which hits many times. It expands vertically as it moves away from Mario. As the blast moves away from him, opponents that come in contact with the vortex are knocked slightly to the side, and are thus forced to travel with it. Opponents that are in the center of the vortex are more easily trapped by it.
Each time a fireball hits an opponent, it does 3% or 2% damage, depending on whether it was the larger fireball or the smaller one. The move is capable of hitting about 7.5 times a second, although this is unlikely due to the speed the fireballs spin at and the knockback delivered. Despite being a powerful Final Smash, it has one major flaw: if the opponents are far away from Mario, they can avoid the attack by jumping over it (especially high jumpers such as Fox or Yoshi). However, it makes it up by inflicting damage on a wide range of multiple enemies and pushing them back quite some distance without allowing recovery, possibly even dragging opponents off the side. Another issue with the attack is the fact that, because it can be air dodged out of fairly easily, it usually will not result in either significant damage or a K.O.
The maximum distance of the Mario Finale reaches approximately from the edge of Final Destination to the a spot right before the blast line. Since opponents are dragged along the length of the attack, it is best to not initiate from the end of a stage.
