Falcon Punch!

The Falcon Punch is a slow, yet powerful move that Captain Falcon uses in Super Smash Bros. It is his Standard Special Move, featured in all four Smash Bros. games.


Super Smash Bros series

Dark Falcon Punch Brawl

Captain Falcon's Falcon Punch with darkness effect.

Captain Falcon cocks his arm back, calling "FALCON..., and releases it a half-second later, calling "PUNCH!!!", with his fist is enshrouded with flames in the shape of a falcon. The attack is extremely slow, but powerful; It KOs at low percents, and it's priority is extremely high. Falcon is vulnerable during the initial windup, however.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Falcon gained the ability to twist at the beginning of the initial charge, aiming the punch in the opposite direction he started, and giving him a defense against those who try to jump or roll behind him. This turning punch also has added power.


File:F-Zero Falcon Densetsu 51 Falcon Punch subbed - UPDATE!!!

In the last episode of the anime, Captain Falcon uses the Falcon Punch to destroy Black Shadow.


  • This move has become somewhat of an internet meme, partly due to the way Captain Falcon performs the move, as well as it's high power.
