A down tilt (abbreviated "d-tilt,"), officially called a strong down (下強攻撃, Down/lower/under strong attack), is a tilt performed by any character by holding the control stick lightly down and pressing the attack button while on the ground, or crouching ahead of time and pressing the attack button. It can also be performed by pressing Z while crouching.
Down tilts tend to be very quick grounded moves with good range, making them useful for spacing and "poking" from a distance. Some down tilts are also combo or followup initiators, while others are capable edgeguarding moves due to their semi-spike angle. In Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, some down tilts are capable of meteor smashing opponents, while in Brawl and SSB4, many have the ability to make opponents prat fall occasionally.
