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.
