This article is about the move used to pummel a grabbed opponent. For the move where a tether grab is used in midair as an attack, see Grab.

The Grab Attack[1] (つかみ攻撃?)[2] is a move used by all characters in the Super Smash Bros. series, starting in Super Smash Bros. Melee. A Grab Attack is executed by performing a Standard Attack on a Grabbed opponent, which deals a small amount of damage to increase the power of a throw. Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Ridley, and Dark Samus each have their own Grab Attacks.

Samus's Grab Attack is the Chozo Chop[3], in which she performs a karate chop with her left hand. In Melee, like all other Grab Attacks, it deals 3% damage. The damage is nerfed to 1% in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but its speed is greatly increased to compensate, making it the third-fastest Grab Attack in the game (behind only Wolf and Lucario). It is slightly buffed in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U to 1.2% (although decimals would not be displayed until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate); with Wolf being cut from this entry, it is the second-fastest Grab Attack in the game. However, the Chozo Chop is nerfed in Ultimate with a reduction to its speed.

Zero Suit Samus's Grab Attack has her strike the opponent with her right knee. The move deals 2% damage, but is nearly twice as slow as the Chozo Chop. This move remains unchanged between Brawl and 3DS/Wii U.

Ridley's Grab Attack is a jab with his tail stinger, which was first demonstrated on Fox in A Piercing Screech.

Dark Samus's Grab Attack is presumably identical to Samus's Chozo Chop.
