The forward throw (前投げ, Front/forward throw; commonly abbreviated as f-throw or Fthrow, and referred to as ThrowF internally) is a throw performed by tilting the control stick in the direction the character is facing after having grabbed the opponent.
Forward throws are often used to launch the opponent away, and a few can be used to chain grab (prior to Super Smash Bros. 4) or start combos. Forward throws are usually not as good of KO moves as back throws (outside of a few exceptions such as Wario's), nor are they as good combo starters as down throws (aside from Kirby); as such, they are generally the least useful throw for most characters, and are only preferred for setting up edgeguards.
List of forward throws
Forward throws with hitboxes consist of two or more hits on the grabbed opponent (the hitbox, then the throw), and can affect other opponents near the thrower. Additionally, some forward throws may possess a collateral hitbox, which affects nearby opponents but not the victim of the throw.
