Dr. Mario (SSB4)/Forward smash
|Dr. Mario forward smash hitbox visualization
Dr. Mario releases an electric shock from his palm. While it has less disjointed range compared to Mario's, it boasts more power over it, as well as reversed sweetspot and sourspot locations, making it more rewarding to hit up close. While the move can be angled, it is mostly used to increase the damage output, as both angling down and up have minor damage increases, with up being the strongest. The disjoint on the move is lacking to the point where it is highly unreliable for the downwards angle to 2-frame opponents. It also has notable startup and endlag, being his slowest smash attack in both of those regards.
