Inhale (Japanese: Intake - すいこみ, Suikomi) can refer to either of two similar attacks, one from Kirby and the other from King Dedede.

Kirby

Inhale is Kirby's Neutral Special Move in all four of his incarnations in the Super Smash Bros. series, though it was previously called Swallow in Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee. When B is pressed, Kirby opens his mouth and begins to inhale, creating a vacuum of wind. Kirby will never stop inhaling until B is released. In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, one of it's known customizations is the Ice Breath, an ability Kirby can use in most Kirby games upon becoming Ice Kirby.

Overview

If a character comes near the vortex, they will automatically be sucked inside Kirby, who will bloat up with the person inside of him. He cannot move in Super Smash Bros., while in Melee and Brawl, he will move at extremely slow speeds, although he can jump a short distance. The increased weight causes Kirby to fall faster as well. The goal of the attack is to swallow the victim (by pressing down or B), which will make Kirby copy their powers, enabling him to perform that character's Neutral Special Move (the character pops out after being swallowed, and can still perform their Neutral Special Move). If Kirby traps the wrong character in his mouth, or simply doesn't want the character's move, Kirby can spit the character out by pressing A.

Kirby dons a unique hat depending on who he's inhaled, such as wearing Mario's hat if he swallows Mario. The copied special attack will sometimes be lost when Kirby is attacked enough, and can also be discarded by Taunting. When a Kirby attempts to copy another Kirby that has no copied ability, the swallowed Kirby will pop out the same way as normal; however, it makes a different sound and the swallowing Kirby doesn't receive a copied ability. If a Kirby swallows another Kirby with a copied ability, then the swallowing Kirby copies the power, as well removing the ability from that Kirby.
