 Item Effect
The Fire Flower is an item from the Mario series (Paper Mario), and has appeared in every installment of the Super Smash Bros series so far. While a character is holding the Fire Flower, if they hold down the A button the fire flower will shoot you a constant stream of flame. In the first two installments of the series you would hold still and be unable to move while shooting out the flames, however in Super Smash Bros. Brawl the ability to move and jump while shooting flames was added. After a certain amount of time shooting flames the Fire Flower will run out of power and just shoot small puffs of smoke. At this point it's generally a good idea to unleash the full potential after racking up damage and smash throw the flower at your opponent for a final hit. It is a good idea to chase down your opponent with the flames and make good use of them before they run out.
When using this item, it is very helpful to get your target trapped directly in front of a wall so you can get maximum damage. Also, make sure that you don't allow Fox, Falco, or Wolf to get their Reflectors up or let Ness or Lucas get up their PSI Magnets. Otherwise, the Fire Flower will do nothing against them. Otherwise, it's just a classic case of aim and shoot fire. When trying to avoid a person with this item, keep in mind that it has a relatively small attack range. Keep a respectable distance between yourself and the person holding this item and you should be ok. This is harder to do in Brawl where the person can move while using this item so timely jumping may be necessary.
