  • The probability of Thunder hitting an enemy is calculated as Number of foes/4, and the probability will not decrease if some enemies are defeated before the attack is finished. There is also no elemental resistance for thunder, meaning the damage will never decrease.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

PK Thunder is Ness's Special Up move, available in all Super Smash Bros. games. He can redirect it at himself to fire himself at enemies, which does much damage. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, PK Thunder is once again Ness' Special Up move, but is also now Lucas'. Lucas' is different in the fact that it can move through enemies, while Ness' can't.
