Random Tripping (Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki
Who thought this was a good idea to be put in a FIGHTING game?

Random Tripping is a mechanic that is exclusive to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This mechanic is infamous for making the game poorly balanced and being extremely annoying.

Why It Sucks

  1. As mentioned above, it makes fights unfair by giving your opponent a chance to make a KO more easily.
  2. It is a dumb idea for a mechanic.
  3. This mechanic is extremely annoying, as it can happen a lot, especially in long battles.
  4. Ruined competitive play for Brawl, as the strategy for winning is camping and barely moving at all, which is really frustrating.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Random tripping only has a 10% chance of happening.
  2. This mechanic thankfully only returned in any future installments under certain conditions (Diddy Kong's Down-B, ROB's D-tilt, Togepi's Earthquake, etc.).


  • It's not officially confirmed, but Lucas' up taunt, where he trips and gets back up is a possible reference to this mechanic.
