Sandbag

From The Codex
Sandbag exists for one reason only: to get smashed in the Home-Run Contest. Pound on Sandbag as much as possible in the time allotted, then swing for the fences as you compete for the longest home run of all time. Getting hit doesn't hurt Sandbag at all. As a matter of fact, it loves to see players wind up and let loose.
~ Melee Trophy Statement
An item that appears in the Home-Run Contest, where the goal is to do lots of damage to Sandbag, then send it flying as far as you can. It also appears in the regular game. If you smash it, a storm of confetti and items will burst out. Sandbag doesn't feel pain, though; in fact, it's happy to be of service.
~ Brawl Trophy Statement
This little guy is great for getting in some practice against. In Home-Run Contest you'll send it flying, and in normal battles it has a habit of dropping items when you lay into it. Sandbag seems pretty content with being your punching bag, so it'd almost be mean not to go all out on it.
~ North American Smash 4 Trophy Statement
This little guy is pretty good to practise with! In the Home-Run Contest, the goal is to attack Sandbag and then whack him as hard as you can to send him flying! He even appears in normal matches, where you can hit him to get lots of food and items. Don't worry, though - he loves to help out. It doesn't even hurt him at all!
~ Europe Smash 4 Trophy Statement

Background

Sandbag is a character from the Stadium game Home-Run Contest in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. 4, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It also appears as an item during matches in Brawl, SSB4, and Ultimate.

Sandbag made its debut in Melee, alongside the new Home-Run Contest event. In the mode, players are given ten seconds to hit Sandbag as far as possible using a Home-Run Bat. Sandbag is given a visible damage percentage in this mode, as to allow players to estimate how far it will travel when hit by the Home-Run Bat.

Sandbag is considered a character, allowing the game to record its damage percentage and allowing players to grab it. Sandbag can also be controlled by a human player through the use of the debug menu. However, a majority of its moveset is not programmed, as it is not intended to move or otherwise act as a standard combatant. As a result, attempting to attack, midair jump, or shield with it will cause the game to freeze. In addition, Sandbag cannot be KOed, even after passing the blast lines, and it can eventually crash the game if it falls too far beyond them, as the game will eventually be unable to calculate its position on the screen. As Sandbag lacks animations for moving and jumping, it uses its idle stance for such movements.

Ore Club An extremely powerful club made of stone that produces tornadoes when swung. Grants super armor when used as a forward smash.
Parasol Reduces the holder's falling speed, allowing them to glide slowly left and right, potentially improving recovery.

Smart Bomb Produces a large explosion when thrown or attacked. Has a chance to be a dud, though it can still explode if hit or thrown again.

Soccer Ball Cannot be picked up. When attacked, it careens in the knockback direction with high damage and knockback.

X Bomb Creates a cross-shaped explosion that spans most of the screen.

Notable Techniques


  • Item Drop: Every time it is hit, it has a chance to drop a random item. The chance could be an explosion that harms the opponent.

Other

Standard Tactics: Sandbag will sit around allowing itself to be hit, once it’s hit an item will fall out of it, with some of them being instantaneous explosions that can tag and KO the smash characters.

Weaknesses: Loves to be hit and will not directly attack back.

Note: The attack that Tabuu used to one-shot the entire Smash cast is far above his regular attacks and this is further proven in-game as when he uses this same attack it one-shots whoever is on-screen thus arguing that they should not scale to Tabuu because he one-shotted them is not accurate as it's with a very specific attack.
