Asleep is a status ailment that characters enter when they are hit by certain special moves, such as Mama Luigi's Maternal Sleep or the Irate Gamer's The Borean. In this state, a character will be unable to do anything, flashing magenta. Rotating the control stick and button mashing will shorten this effect, waking the character up sooner. Characters with higher damage will sleep longer than characters with less damage. Characters in the air or on an edge are immune to sleep attacks. Sleep also ends early when the ground sleeping characters are on disappears.
