Widespread damage to enemies
A Spin Attack is a type of sword move Link can do throughout the Zelda series. Normally, the player holds down a button then releases it to do a spin-attack. If the game has a Magic Meter (Except Skyward Sword), the player can hold the button longer to do a more powerful Spin-Attack and can hit from a longer distance. In Skyward Sword, the player must shake the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck horizontally or vertically to do a Spin Attack. If the player gathers "Skyward Power" by facing the sword up, he/she can do the Spin Attack more powerfully and reach a longer distance.
