Hand Slap in Brawl.
|Article on DK Wiki||Hand Slap|
Hand Slap (ハンドスラップ) is Donkey Kong's down special move. When performing it, Donkey Kong delivers an earth-shaking blow to the ground, sending nearby enemies skyward. It has considerable power, consistent and repetitive damage, and a large quake hitbox.
This move is good against bosses, but only works on certain ground bosses. In Brawl, it is one of the few down special attacks that can't be used in the air.
In Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong was able to do this move to get hidden items in the ground, though there weren't many places to do so. It also served as a second way to deal with enemies. In the game, however, DK would hit on the ground once with each hand each time, but was done the same way, by holding down and pressing attack. The move later appears in the Wii version of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, as well as Donkey Kong Country Returns, also on Wii.
