A glass cannon is characterized by a character who has many powerful attacks and amazing combo ability, but is hindered even more than other characters by low armor and weight ratings. This means, while they don't survive long, when they do survive they can really dish out damage.

A good example of a glass cannon outside of Super Smash Bros. games is Akuma from Street Fighter.
