Super Smash Bros.[edit | edit source]
Failnaught appears as one of the many weapons wielded by Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Failnaught is used as Byleth's neutral aerial, as well as their neutral special. With Byleth's neutral special, they can charge up an arrow up to two tiers. The first tier can be canceled by shielding or jumping, and can be turned around to fire in the opposite direction. The second tier forces Byleth to be rooted to the spot in exchange for great power and is capable of breaking near-full shields.
If Kirby were to use Inhale on Byleth, he is also able to wield Failnaught.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Failnaught is named after Fail-not, the bow wielded by Tristan, a Knight of the Round Table in Arthurian legend.
