[edit] The Trophy

An Assist Trophy is an item in the shape of a capsule in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Once somebody grabs it, it takes a few seconds for them to activate it. Once they are activated, there is no stopping the power, with a few exceptions. However, with the time it takes to activate it, knocking your opponent into the air will sometimes cause him/her to drop it. Also, when the person holding the Assist Trophy Dies, the Assist Trophy is lost as well.

[edit] Strategy

You should always treat this item like you would a Smash Ball. Although the Assist Trophy is not like any other item in the game, it has the potential to possess the same game changing qualities as a Smash Ball. Since many players will go after it like they would a Smash Ball or a Heart Container, it can become quite dangerous when trying to get an Assist Trophy. There is no way to tell who is within the Assist Trophy as that is always random. However, it will serve you well to treat it like one of the Offensive Assist Trophies listed above. Keep in mind however, that you will be open to attacks as you start to activate the Assist Trophy. This can be an opponent's invitation to attack you freely just before you manage to activate the Assist Trophy. Also remember that if you are in the air with an Assist Trophy, your character will try to activate it the instant they touch the ground. Sometimes, when you attack someone activating an Assist Trophy, they will drop it just like any other item. When it's dropped, the Assist Trophy is fair game again. If you can't get to the Assist Trophy quick enough, try attacking the person who got it as much as you can in the hopes that they will drop it.
