Transform and Roll Out

Optimus drives onto the stage and transforms into robot mode.


Neutral B - Ion Blaster

Optimus fires his Ion Blaster. Causes flinching and possesses decent knockback.

Side B - Transform

Optimus transforms into a truck with a trailer and drives forward, damaging opponents in his way. Hitting back on the control stick will cause Optimus to spin around and swing his trailer at the opponent. After releasing the control stick, Optimus will transform back into robot mode. Can serve as a horizontal recovery move, but in the air, Optimus will descend quickly and be left in a helpless state.

Up B - Axe Slash

Optimus slashes upward with his Energon Axe. Very similar to Marth's recovery. Leaves Optimus helpless.

Down B - Roll Out

Optimus calls a random Autobot to assist him.

  • Bumblebee - Shoots the opponent with a large blaster shot.
  • Jetfire - Flies in and fires 5 homing missles at the enemy.
  • Ironhide - Shoots acid from his gun at the opponent
  • Cliffjumper - Shoots glass gas at the opponent, freezing them.
  • Mirage - Makes Prime invisible for a minute.
  • Hound - Makes a hologram of Prime to fight with him until Prime is KO'd.

Final Smash - Light Our Darkest Hour
