 Item Effect
The Timer, is an item only appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The Timer is an uncommon item found in crates, party balls, and barrels. When a character uses the timer, there is a high percent chance that all characters on the battlefield but your character will move much more slowly. There is also a possibility that every character on the battlefield will move slower. There is a very low chance that only you will move slowly, which negates any advantages for this item.
You should always head toward this item as if it's a game changer. This is similar to the Lightning's effect of usually making all other characters smaller except the Timer usually makes all other characters move much slower than usual for a short time, similar to Slow-Mo Melee, a type of Special Melee option, in Super Smash Bros. Melee. While the chance is not guaranteed, it is very high. With the other characters slowed, this becomes a huge opportunity to grab some easy KOs on anyone with a high damage percentage. Should you not be able to get to this item and you are slowed by the Timer, it's best to try and stay in the air using midair dodges as much as possible until the effects wear off. Keep in mind that since your movements are slowed greatly, it means that your dodges actually last longer, which can be used to your advantage if used correctly. Also, be sure to be wary that, although very rare, the timer may slow everyone down, including the user, or even just slow the user down. However, as previously mentioned, the Timer will usually slow down all other characters besides the one who uses the Timer.
