DR. MARIO - Featured Video

Up Smash to Fling Enemy Above the Stage

Launches opponents a great distance backward at an upward diagonal. If it lands while you're on a tall platform, you may be able to KO opponents through the top of the screen.

Land Kick at the End of the Move for Extra Damage (Neutral Air)

A rare move in that the end of the move is stronger than the beginning. Time your movement well so you hit opponents near the end of the move to launch them.

Meteor Enemies with Down Air Attack

Unlike Mario's down air attack, Dr. Mario's down air has a meteor effect. It's powerful, but Dr. Mario's recovery is limited, so be careful with your aim.
