Captain Falcon (SSBM)/Down throw
Falcon slams the opponent against the ground. Easily one of the best throws in Melee due to its incredible combo potential against many characters, such as:
-Tech-chasing against Fastfallers and Midfallers
-Direct combos into his neutral air, up air, and Knee
-Placing opponents far offstage at a low-angle, which can lead to some lethal edgeguards
Mixed up with his up-throw, this move serves as one of Falcon's core punish game tools and is useful against EVERY character in the game, at least at certain percents.
The speed of this throw depends on the opponent's weight.
