A Screen KO (手前やられ, Forefront defeat) is a special type of KO which has a chance of occurring when characters are launched past the upper blast line. In contrast of a Star KO, the character instead falls into the foreground and appears to crash into the television screen, before they are KOed at the bottom.
Whether a character is Star KOed, Screen KOed, or merely blast KOed is mostly random. In the first three games, Screen KOs are considerably rarer than Star KOs- as a result, Screen KOs rarely involve two or more characters at once. In the fourth game, the frequency of Screen KOs has been increased, especially in the 3DS version, to be about as common as Star KOs.
