The Fire Bar (ファイアバー, Faiabā) is an item in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. It is a battering item that deals flame damage. A fireball from the end is removed each time it is swung, with an apparent minimum of one.
Firebars first appeared in Super Mario Bros. as obstacles that damage the player, and firebars have appeared in numerous Mario games since. In the Mario games, firebars are rods of fireballs that rotate on a block and typically appear in castle levels. Rather than the firebar rotating in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, it is stationary and is used as a battering item. The design of the block of the firebar item is based on their design in contemporary 3D Mario games, while the fire is based on the design of fireballs from Super Mario Bros.
