How to Wall Cling

This guide will show you how to perform a wall cling in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (SSBU) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn the easiest way to cling to walls, and all characters in Smash Ultimate who can perform this ability.

How to Wall Cling

Choose a character who can wall cling

A wall cling isn't an ability that can be done by any character, and only a select few characters are capable of it. Refer to our list further down below to see all characters that can perform a Wall Cling, or look at the image above. Characters marked with a circle can wall jump, while characters marked with a star can cling to walls.

Tilt the directional stick towards the wall

While in the air and in contact with a wall, you can tilt the directional stick towards the wall to cling to it. While in this position, you will not be able to move and your only option is to jump to recover. After clinging to a wall, press the stick in the opposite direction of the wall to do a wall jump instead.

Clinging on a wall for too long will cause you to fall, so don't idle too long!

You cannot cling to a part of the wall higher than the first time you used a wall cling

Once you have clinged onto a a wall, it is impossible to grab a higher portion of the current wall that you previously grabbed if you do a second wall cling. Recovering back to the stage will reset this, so use this action as a valuable resource, and don't cling too low.
