Crownerang (クラウンスロー, Crown Throw) is King K. Rool's Side Special. K. Rool takes his crown off of his head and tosses it forwards; the crown flies in a straight path forwards, and after travelling a set distance it will fly back to K. Rool.

If the crown is deflected by the opponent or K. Rool does not catch it when it flies back, it will fall to the ground, and can then be picked up as an item by any fighter. K. Rool is unable to use his side special again until he picks up the crown item. If the crown falls off the stage, it will eventually respawn near K. Rool. K. Rool automatically picks up his crown when he touches it, even if the player makes no button inputs.

The Crownerang can be comboed with Blunderbuss to send two projectiles at the enemy or to use the Blunderbuss' vacuum to suck up anyone who tries to dodge around the crown to approach K. Rool.
