The Side Special Move (also commonly called forward B, side B, and smash B in iterations prior to Super Smash Bros. Brawl) is a special attack introduced in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It is performed by pressing the special move button while holding "left" or "right" on the control stick (or control pad on the Wii Remote). Some side special moves are different depending on whether or not the control stick (or pad) is "smashed" or simply tilted to the side. An example would be Samus's missiles, where a "tilt" yields a weaker homing missile, and a "smash" yields a stronger, faster missile.
