'''Knockback''' is a measure of how far an attack sends its target. For example, [[Bowser]]'s [[forward smash]] is an attack of high knockback; it launches opponents very far, so far that at high damages it's more powerful than a [[home-run bat]] [[smash attack]]. [[Pikachu]]'s [[neutral A]], on the other hand, has very low knockback - it hardly sends opponents anywhere.

Knockback is a measure of how far an attack sends its target. For example, Bowser's forward smash is an attack of high knockback; it launches opponents very far, so far that at high damages it's more powerful than a home-run bat smash attack. Pikachu's neutral A, on the other hand, has very low knockback - it hardly sends opponents anywhere.

The knockback of most attacks increases as the target's damage increases; however, there are some exceptions, notably Fox's shine. Attacks like this are said to have set knockback. Also, attacks knock back light characters farther than heavy characters.
