Talk:Waddle Dee Toss

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Does the chance of getting a non-Waddle/Gordo item seem higher or lower than the chance of getting a Saturn/Bob-omb/sword with Peach in Melee? I've only seen it happen once or twice. 63.231.156.149 02:44, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I just did extensive testing in practice mode, it's about the same chance as Gordo throw. Capsules are much more common than, say, a Smash Ball, just like more capsules than Smash Balls spawn from item drops.75.163.234.117 01:19, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
After extensive re-testing, I never recieved an item besides a capsule (except from a capsule I threw), so my guess is that everyone (me included) saw the released item and assumed Dedede threw it directly.75.163.235.9 03:38, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Actually he doesn't throw the capsule directly (by pressing A I'm assuming) because the capsule moves like a normally thrown item, or in otherwords, the way the capsule moves (which is LIKE any regular thown capsule) causes the capsule to burst upon hitting the ground. Capsules are more likely then gordos, and the smash ball can appear from a capsule that King Dedede got from the move. Those capsules can also explode just like regular containers but this is rare (within the chances of getting a capsule). Those capsules will most likely have an item that will greatly help you, usually being gear. Oh Yes, Gordos are very rare, Waddle Doos are very unlikely, probrably about 1/9 is the chance, Gordos are probrably 1/30 if not more, and capsule drops are probrably 1/20 to appear. It all most likely depends on a (random number?) depending on what thing you get. I'm not really sure, but capsules appear to be more likely then gordos, but think, gordos are powerful when they hit (they also look painful) if gordos appeared more often, then it would be unfair. Capsules really do the damage of a regular one (because they are regular capsules, just spawned from a move) so it would seem more likely for them to appear. Learner3 10:40, 13 April 2008 (EDT)
Yes he does throw it directly. The side special move throws the capsule. It doesn't just appear in his hand. - Gargomon251 (talk) 21:09, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
DOES he actually have a chance to throw a pitfall?! I've never seen him throw one before. Learner4 (talk) 16:39, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
No. No he never does. Ever. - Gargomon251 (talk) 21:09, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

I believe I once threw out a Green Shell while playing as Dedede. Maybe it was just a capsule that was broken by another attack as soon as it came out, but it looked to me like he threw out a Green Shell. That's the only instance I've seen that it was an item other than a Capsule, though, so I could be wrong.

In the trivia section...[edit]

Does "it" mean Kind DDD himself? Or the waddle dee/oo? --~The Blue Blur~New main in training! 13:41, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

King Dedede is quite clearly a HE. - Gargomon251 (talk) 21:08, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Videos[edit]

Can we get links to the "Waddle Dee is the most powerful character in ‛‛Brawl‛‛" videos? King KirbyD KirbyHeadSSBM.png 10:59, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Those videos are not relevant in any way. After seeing the trivia in the article, having a link to one of those videos would be fine. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 11:21, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Major Editing[edit]

The main content in this page needs to be supressed. Information that is not vital should be removed. This move in itself has a lot a information, but should this be organized better or just shortened? LightningBlue: Cinco de Smash 02:39, 20 May 2012 (EDT)

Split[edit]

I believe the move in SSB4 that throws only Gordos should get it's own page. I think it was really strange to click "Gordo Toss" and end in this page. So, what do you guys think?Tepig (talk) 12:33, 28 May 2014 (EDT)

Odds are good "Gordo Toss" will be the SSB4 name but it's not confirmed as such yet. We judge these on a case-by-case basis (see Hero's Bow) so it's not set in stone whether it'll get its own page or not. Miles (talk) 13:31, 28 May 2014 (EDT)
Oddly, the move has Gordo Toss confirmed as the Japanese name, despite the English version having yet to decide on one. The fact that is has a new name in the base region means it should probably get a new page, but I suppose we should wait for an English name before we actually make that page. FirstaLasto 13:36, 28 May 2014 (EDT)

Now that we have access to the games, I believe Gordo Throw deserves its own page. Even though both moves can make use of a Gordo, they function in completely different ways. Even the name is awkwardly different, as one's called Toss and the other's currently called Throw. When moves like Luigi Cyclone and Blaster (Wolf) get their own page, a nearly all-new move deserves one in my opinion, even if one is considered a "successor" to the other.

I support for the reasons you said. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The StarCraft 19:31, 22 September 2014 (EDT)
For the record, the move is officially called Gordo Throw, according to the EGX 2014 booklet. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatum 17:26, 29 September 2014 (EDT)
Supporting this, the Gordos in SSB4 behave very differently from the ones in SSBB. --Menshay (talk) 15:14, 5 October 2014 (EDT)
