The Charge Beam (sometimes called Charge Shot) is an attack Samus Aran can perform in the Metroid series. It is performed by charging up your normal beam and letting go when it has reached its full capacity.

Throughout the iterations, not much has changed for this move. While uncharged, it doesn't do much damage but when fully charged, the blast can KO most at a decent percent. Some of the best strategies in using it is to fire a Super Missile and follow it with a fully charged Charge Beam or vice-versa. The opponent dodges the first but gets hit by the second and gets knocked off the stage.
