PSI Magnet is a PSI technique, introduced in Mother. It siphons PP from an enemy, recovering the user's PP slightly. It requires no PP to use, so it is very helpful to use when you have no PP restoring items in your inventory.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

This is used by both Ness and Lucas as their down special attack. It forms a psychic field around the user that absorbs most energy-based attacks, replenishing the character's health to double of the damage that attack would have dealt. It also slows down the user if used in mid-air.


  • PSI Magnet is the only psychic move used by Ness and Lucas in the Super Smash Bros. series that isn't referred to by the word PK. It is also the only psychic move where Ness doesn't say its name in the series.
  • In Super Smash Bros., level 5 or higher CPUs will almost never attempt to use a Fire Flower on Ness, because of PSI Magnet. This is also the case with Fox and his Reflector.
