Double Hit Enemies with Down Smash

Popo attacks in front of himself and Nana attacks behind. When Popo is alone, his attack range will become smaller.

Forward Air Attack Can Launch & Meteor

Roll forward in the air and slam down the hammer. Popo's attack can launch opponents far, and Nana's attack has a meteor effect if it hits just right.

Keep Nana Safe From Enemy

Nana is slightly easier to launch than Popo. When Nana is gone, the Special moves and normal attacks will become weaker and Belay won't be as effective for recoveries.
