Oooo, that makes things look a bit more dramatic.
When it comes to a fighting game as unique as Smash, visual flare can add quite a bit of satisfaction to each battle.

I can't wait to see that effect in action when it's happening to someone I've just hit with a Spin Attack or something similarly powerful. If it comes with a half-second delay where the opponent is frozen from the sheer power of the blow before flying off, it'd be extremely satisfying.
