Arm Rotor is the name for R.O.B.'s Side Special Move. The attack causes R.O.B. to spin with arms outstretched. The also attack lifts R.O.B. into the air slightly, allowing it to be used to aid R.O.B.'s recovery slightly. It deals minor damage (normally 4%), hits multiple times, and has decent stun and knockback. This attack can also reflect any incoming projectiles that hit the outstretched arms. The move can be bit difficult to use as a reflector, as there is bit of delay before R.O.B. starts to spin his arms, thus requiring more accurate timing than the other faster reflectors. Finally, it can be extended by rapidly tapping the Special Move button. If R.O.B. moves left or right while performing this move, his torso will also bend.
Rotating his arms and opening his hands were the only functions R.O.B could do to interact with games possibly serving as the inspiration of the fast paced Arm Rotor.
