The Plasma Attack[1] is a move that appears in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. When performing this technique, the user fires a powerful projectile.


When performing the Plasma Attack, the user forms an orb of red or blue plasma (depending on the players’ team) and kicks it at opponents, much like a football. This orb leaves a trail of its color when moving.

The Plasma Attack is only usable during the Dual Football event. In gameplay, it is used to knock down and hinder opponents, as well as making them lose the football if they have it. The technique is only usable to a playable character when their team is on the defensive.
