[[File:Slap.jpg|thumb|Hand Slap, Donkey Kong's down special move in all Super Smash Bros. games.]]The '''Down Special Move''', (also commonly referred to as '''Down B''' in iterations prior to ''[[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]]'') is a [[special move]] performed by pressing the special move button while holding down on the [[control stick]] (or control pad on the [[Wii Remote]]). These moves are often gimmick moves, like reflectors or absorbers, or moves with unique properties when used in different ways. For example, [[Falcon Kick]] sends [[Captain Falcon]] downwards when used in the air, or [[Meta Knight]] can teleport and choose to attack if he wishes. They also usually include minimal character movement horizontal or vertically.

Pikachu SSB4 (4)

Thunder, Pikachu's down special move in all Super Smash Bros. games.

Down Special (also commonly referred to as Down B) is a special move performed by pressing the special move button while holding down on the control stick (or control pad on the Wii Remote). These moves are often gimmick moves, like reflectors or absorbers, or moves with unique properties when used in different ways. For example, Falcon Kick sends Captain Falcon downwards when used in the air, or Meta Knight can teleport and choose to attack if he wishes. They also usually include minimal character movement horizontal or vertically.
