Plasma Smasher (プラズマスマッシャー Purazuma Sumasshā), a bombardment attack possessed by Fate Testarossa, is an enhanced version of Thunder Smasher, after Bardiche is upgraded as Bardiche Assault in A's. Unlike Thunder Smasher, however, it is usually cast from Fate's palm instead of from Bardiche.[1]

A pure mana attack with lightning, Plasma Smasher is specialised for speed battle in the mid-to-cross range, sacrificing the maximum reach for power and casting speed. When fired, Midchildan loops are used for acceleration and power boost, showing Fate's control skill as an all-round attacker.[2]

In StrikerS, like Plasma Arm's case, Vivio has also obtained Plasma Smasher from Fate and used it during the JS Incident.

Variations[edit | edit source]

Trident Smasher in StrikerS

Trident Smasher (トライデントスマッシャー Toraidento Sumasshā) is likely a further development of Plasma Smasher, wherein three beams are shot simultaneously from the same firing-point, creating the visual effect of a trident's blades.[3] It is seen casting as part of the buster shift by Fate and Nanoha, e.g. in StrikerS (ep.12, also the flashback in StrikerS manga) against Quattro and Dieci, in The MOVIE 2nd A's against the Will of the Book of Darkness.
