Heel Slide is a technique which Bayonetta can use in the game of the same name. It is used for simultaneously closing distance between Bayonetta and her target whilst also attacking them by using the weapon equipped to the foot slot. Compared to the similar technique Stiletto, Heel Slide is faster, does much more damage on average, and goes a lot farther. Unlike Stiletto, Heel Slide cannot be executed in mid-air, and if attempted Bayonetta instead executes a downwards After Burner Kick. The player just needs to time it right.

Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

In Bayonetta's playable appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Heel Slide is Bayonetta's side special move. Using it involves Bayonetta sliding across the ground in a kick attack. If the player holds the special attack button for the duration of the move, Bayonetta follows up with a vertical kick that knocks opponents into the air. Like in the first Bayonetta game, if Bayonetta tries to use Heel Slide while in midair, she instead uses After Burner Kick, so both Heel Slide and After Burner Kick are incorporated into the side special move.
