Down is an attack effect used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is exclusive to Snake's down throw.

Down attacks cause the victim to lie down (supine), dealing damage without any knockback. If used on a grabbable Assist Trophy, it will immediately be standing again after the throw animation is complete. In Ultimate, unlike a fighter that is lying down due to other methods, a fighter that is lying down due to the down effect can be buried.

Due to the down effect, Snake's down throw is very effective at tech-chasing.
