Hitboxes of Captain Falcon's down smash.

Captain Falcon crouches and kicks on both sides of himself while spinning, dealing 16% and average to below average knockback. If the attack connects closer to the body, the opponent will be sent upwards at a slight angle. If it connects with the tip, the opponent will be sent on a more horizontal trajectory. The move has a somewhat short duration for a move of this criteria, but is somewhat awkward compared to Falcon's other moves. The front hitbox does more knockback than the back. The move has high range along the ground, being able to hit characters hanging on the edge. However, the move cannot combo well, has low knockback (cannot KO reliably until above 150%), and is generally not recommended for most situations.
