Hitboxes of Kirby's down smash.

Kirby does a spinning split kick on the ground, covering both sides of him, doing 18% damage and pretty high horizontal knockback. It can be used to punish and edgeguard or gimp an opponent's recovery, though Kirby almost always has better options, with a forward smash being a much better horizontal KO option, and his aerials and down tilt being a better way to edgeguard from the edge. Additionally, it has some ending lag, meaning that if shielded, Kirby will be left rather vulnerable, especially to shield grabs.
