Mario (SSBB)/Forward tilt
While very fast in start-up and ending lag, the move's poor reach limits its capability as a spacing move. It mainly serves as a quick punish attack, though with its low damage output and knockback, and having no followup potential, it doesn't accomplish much when landed. It has slightly more base knockback when aimed down, though the move still won't have real KO potential under 200%, and the increase in base knockback is far from enough to make it useful for hitting opponents off the stage. Overall, while it's not a terrible move, it's not very useful, and it pales in comparison to most other forward tilts.
