Every playable character in Mario Golf: Super Rush has a Special Shot — kind of like a magic attack — and a Special Dash. Special Shots do things like blast other players’ balls out of the way or freeze the ground when the ball lands. Special Dashes are all about knocking other players out of the way as you dash between shots.

In this Mario Golf: Super Rush guide, we’ll list every character’s Special Shot and Dash, and give you a brief description of each.

Special Shots and Special Dashes

Each character has unique (well, unique-ish) Special Shots and Special Dashes.

Special Shots change the way your ball behaves during a shot and how your ball interacts with the ground when it lands. Special Dashes are all about knocking other players off balance or out of the way as you sprint between shots. There’s not really a lot of difference between them beyond their animations. Special Dashes also kick other players’ balls out of the way.

Every Mii gets the same Special Shot and Dash.
