R.O.B. uses both arms like a vice to grab the opponent. His grabs are infamous for being very short compared to R.O.B.'s huge body, reaching barely beyond his own face, with only his pivot grab being noticeably longer. Despite this, his grab is still somewhat important, as up throw and down throw can combo into aerials, and both can kill, down throw with the 'Beep Boop' setup, and up throw with its high knockback growth.
