- This page is about throwing items. For information about throws performed from a grab, see this page
A throw or item throw is an attack, performed when the character is holding an item, and then pressing the Grab button. Depending on the Analog Stick's position, the direction and strength of the throw will be different. The player can throw an item while in midair, or on the ground. Experienced players may perfectly hit opponents trying to get back onto the battlefield if they are lucky enough.
Directions and strength
The player may choose to throw the item in one of 5 directions, the last not exactly being a throw: Up, Left, Right, Down and none. When the Grab button is simply pressed without a direction being inputted, the fighter will drop the weapon, if it can be dropped. It is this feature when used in mid air that forms the basis for bat dropping.
If a direction is inputted, the fighter will throw it in the same direction. The item can be thrown in 2 different strengths: Smash (Grab and Direction are pressed at the same time) or Tilt (the direction is held before pressing Grab). While on the ground, the player can even throw an item while dashing.
