Kirby (SSB4)/Forward throw

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki
Hitbox visualization showing Kirby's forward throw.


Kirby flips, then piledrives the opponent. Based on the Suplex ability's Pile Driver from Kirby Super Star. As of update 1.1.0, it is a very useful combo throw, leading into either forward air, forward air re-grab, up air, or a combination of them depending on the damage of the opponent and rage. At the upper limit of the combo potential, which is around 60-80%, a jump may be needed to follow up.
