A Downward Throw[1] (下投げ?)[2] is a throwing attack in the Super Smash Bros. series, used by every character. It is performed by pressing down on the control stick after using a Grab on an opponent. Most Downward Throws throw the opponent into the ground and/or bounce them at different angles, and set up combos better than other directional throws.

Samus Brings the full force of her strength on to her opponent with a downward kick.

Downward Throws originated in Super Smash Bros. Melee and have appeared in every installment since. They do not exist in the original Super Smash Bros.

Samus Aran's Downward Throw is the Beam Slam[3]. She violently pick up her foe with her Grapple Beam, slings them over her head, and slams them into the ground with a set knockback, dealing 6% base damage. Dark Samus's Downward Throw is identical.

Zero Suit Samus similarly uses her Plasma Whip to slam her opponent on the ground, lifts her leg and stomps down on them with her foot. It deals 5% (slam) and 2% (stomp), 7% total.

In Ridley's Downward Throw, he slams the opponent on the ground with a single hand.
