Mario reaches out with both of his hands. His grabs have rather poor range although his standing grab is one of the fastest. His dash and pivot however come out relatively slowly, although they do not have too much ending lag. Mario's throws are useable as back throw can score KOes at high percents near the ledge and down throw can lead into mix-ups although his down throw has no guaranteed follow-ups. Overall, Mario's grabs are decent but his throw game is nothing spectacular.
