The Great Cave Offensive is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is based on the segment of the same name from the 1995 SNES game Kirby Super Star and is considered one of the worst stages in the Smash Bros. series.

Why It's Offensive

  1. Incredibly tight spaces in the stage, making it difficult to fight opponents.
  2. There are Spikes, a floating Spike Ball and Lava. They are abnoxious stage hazards which can KO you at 100%, otherwise if you are at 0%, they deal 25%, and the Lava is scattered around the stage.
  3. The cannons, while being good for transportation, can shoot you into either the Blast Zone or Lava if you're not careful.
  4. The Boss Galaga and Beetle, while being good for KOs, only work if you can lure foes to the top of the stage, otherwise if used in the bottom, they will just get stuck on the celing and it will be useless.
  5. There are also minecarts that move at high speed and do damage if touched.
  6. Even if Hazards are off for the stage, the Lava, Spikes and the Spike Ball will still be there.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The stage has Battlefield and Omega Forms, which are way better than this.
  2. The cannons are good for transportation, despite WIO#3.
